OST Celebrates a Landmark Victory with Environmental Advocacy Groups!
Historic Win Against the FCC
In this historic decision, the Federal Court ordered the FCC to explain why it ignored scientific evidence showing harm from wireless radiation. The court held that the FCC failed to respond to “record evidence that exposure to RF radiation at levels below the Commission’s current limits may cause negative health effects unrelated to cancer." Further, the agency demonstrated "a complete failure to respond to comments concerning environmental harm caused by RF radiation."
Take action and tell Elected Officials about this ruling. Easy and quick instructions to inform Oregon legislators about this historic decision.
From Dr. Devra Davis, Ph.D. MPH, Director Enviromental Health Trust
“If cell phones were a drug they would have been banned years ago. 5G would never have been allowed to market. An ever-mounting body of published studies — ignored by the FCC — clearly indicates that exposure to wireless radiation can lead to numerous health effects, especially for children. Research indicates wireless radiation increases cancer risk, damages memory, alters brain development, impacts reproductive health, and much more. Furthermore, the way the FCC measures our daily exposure to cell phone and cell tower radiation is fatally flawed and provides a false sense of security.”
UPDATES for ASHLAND
Ashland’s Downtown RF Levels are Not Safe, Code Red
The final Radio Frequency Code for Ashland, Oregon along Main is an 8. This “code” goes from 3 to 12 with a 3 representing communities that are “green” for all their readings and a 12 representing communities that are entirely “black”. (Ashland’s readings at the average, median, and maximum values are all black). Levels at 30,000 microW/m2 can contribute to heart palpitations in those who are sensitive to this radiation. The maximum RF levels at 2 of the 5 intersections already exceed this level.
Ashland City Council Must Re-write Telecom Ordinances
Despite numerous urgings and a packed Study Session in 2019, the City Council has yet to take on the pre-emptive action of changing our Telecom ordinances- key to keeping Ashland a safe harbor for those who feel the effects of RF radiation, and hope to keep it healthy for coming generations. Feel free to contact your Ashland City Council to urge them to add Telecom ordinances to their agenda.
No update on the SOU/AT&T tower. Stay tuned.

Oregon for Safer Technology (OST) is a grassroots public-interest group advocating for biologically-safe digital technology in our homes, schools, and workplaces. Our hundreds of hours of research over the last 3 years, from sources worldwide, confirm that radio frequency radiation (RFR) from wireless technologies is harmful to us and all life forms.
