Reducing Cell Phone Risks: The Porto Alegre Declaration & the Precautionary Principle.
Professor Alvaro Augusto de Salles. Ph.D. is an electrical engineer with the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul-UFRGS in Porto Alegre, Brazil, where he researches ways of reducing the dangers of electromagnetic exposure from cell phones and wireless devises. Porto Alegre is not only the birthplace of the World Social Forum. It is also a pioneer in the enactment of local laws protecting the public from the serious health effects of cell phones and electro-smog. Dr. de Salles talks about the technical and legal measures which are currently available to reduce EMR health risks, but which are being suppressed and opposed by telecom corporations. He outlines the measures already taken by Porto Alegre and the recommendations contained in The Porto Alegre Declaration, a document signed by international scientists advocating the Precautionary Principle.
