The Effects of and Non-Ionizing RF Microwave Radiation and Electromagnetic Fields on Flora and Fauna

(Levitt, Lai, and Manville)

The journal Reviews on Environmental Health just published the final part of a three-part monograph that examines the effects of non-ionizing Electromagnetic Fields (EMF), including wireless RF microwave radiation from cell towers and EMF from power lines, on flora and fauna. This 150-page review (plus supplements) written by B. Blake Levitt, Henry Lai, and Albert Manville cites more than 1,200 references.

  • Blake Levitt, an award-winning journalist and free-lance journalist for the New York Times, has specialized in medical and science writing for three decades. Since the late 1970’s, she has researched the biological effects of nonionizing radiation.
  • Henry Lai is a scientist and bioengineering Professor Emeritus at the University of Washington and former Editor-in-Chief of Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine. Dr. Lai is best known for his research published in 1995 which concluded that low-level microwave radiation caused DNA damage in rat brains.
  • Albert Manville is a retired branch manager and senior wildlife biologist in the Division of Migratory Bird Management at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Dr. Manville has served as an adjunct professor and lecturer for more than two decades at Johns Hopkins University where he has taught field classes in ecology, conservation biology, and wildlife management.
