Military and Government Reports

Updated 7/22/23

While newer scientific literature on biological and physiological effects of  microwave radiation is available online, there is a wealth of older and very valuable information from governmental policy organizations on research and health effects of radiofrequency radiation. These include the World Health Organization, the Naval Military Institute and NASA, that were written even before the 1970’s, which add thousands of studies to this scientific information base. These reports are long but thorough compendiums that indicate harm from this type of non-ionizing radiation has been known for many decades.
