About Get Wired


OUR MISSION

1. To raise awareness of the substantial, peer-reviewed body of evidence that man-made EMFs present health risks that are not seen with natural EMFs.  For example: http://www.nature.com/articles/srep14914

2. To provide practical advice for individuals, schools, businesses and other organisations on how they can reduce the risks of harm to themselves and those they are legally obligated to protect — and are increasingly likely to face litigation claims from.  For example: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/9619514/Mobile-phones-can-cause-brain-tumours-court-rules.html

3. To present industry with an opportunity to engage in dialogue about why wireless technologies must and can be made safer for users.  For example, as we saw in the development of the automotive industry, safety eventually become a primary source of end user value and differentiation, but only after many people died or were seriously harmed by poor/non-existent safety features and inappropriate testing methodologies.


WHY AWARENESS IS IMPORTANT

We are embracing wireless technologies at a phenomenal rate, yet many people remain unaware of the emerging body of damning evidence showing harm from man-made EMFs.  This includes startling studies and admissions by the industry itself about how man-made EMFs, such as WiFi, for example, cause DNA damage, chromosomal aberration and negatively impact on sperm vitality, motility and mortality.

Most worryingly, though, is that those particularly susceptible to harm are our children — the very group most likely to become high-dependency users of wireless technologies from a very early age, continuing throughout their schooling and into their professional lives.  We are yet to see the effects of one full generation being conceived and living their entire lives in close proximity to multiple sources of artificial, information-carrying, polarised, microwave signals.  Today’s generation are the first.

When people are presented with the substantial body of scientific facts about artificial EMF health risks as well as practical steps they can take to minimise these risks, they are better able to make informed decisions about how best to protect themselves, their families, employees, pupils, and others within their care and communities.


ULTIMATE GOAL

As our understanding of mankind’s inherent electromagnetic nature and universal sensitivity to EMFs finally matures, we realise that there are not only challenges but significant opportunities ahead.  These opportunities include, for example:

  • Driving new advances in much safer EMF technologies and practices
  • Revolutionising the ways in which we approach human diseases and healing modalities
  • Creating new insurance categories that take a proactive, positive approach to EMF protection for truly socially responsible companies and organisations.  At present, most insurance companies refuse to insure companies for EMF-related health claims.

Our ultimate goal, then, is to help make the transition from an environment where there is wide-spread misunderstanding about the realities of harmful EMF technologies, to one where there is not only common knowledge about this issue but an established market for technologies that are designed with the primary aim of supporting human health, well-being and longevity.
