PUBLIC EXPOSURE: DNA, DEMOCRACY AND THE “WIRELESS REVOLUTION” is the first independent documentary on the telecommunication industry’s cover-up of the dangers to public health and democracy posed by the spread of cell phones and cell towers... and what you can do about it.

This one-hour documentary presents authoritative scientific evidence of potentially dangerous biological effects from chronic exposure to low-level radio frequency radiation – RFR. Over 114 million Americans are now using cell phones. 65,000 are being sold each day in the U.S. alone. Worldwide, there are estimated to be 1 billion users of cell phones. The antennas which broadcast the microwave signals to service these phones are mounted contiguously throughout urban and rural areas. We are all thus being exposed, 7 days per week, 24 hours per day, to low levels of microwaves from multiple sources. Effects are additive. This is violence to all in its path, vegetation, trees, water, and animal life. There is nowhere to hide.

Though the exact scientific understanding of the mechanism of harm still remains unknown, growing numbers of independent scientific studies show that bio-effects of low level RFR exposure like that emitted by cell phones and cell phone towers include: attention span deficit, memory loss, infertility, childhood & adult leukemia, eye cancer, weakened blood-brain barrier, lowered reaction time, immune system effects, sleeplessness, irritability, anxiety, depression, melatonin/seratonin imbalance, calcium efflux disruption, abnormal cell growth promotion and DNA damage. Additionally, microwaves interact unpredictably with the chemicals and heavy metals in the body.

PUBLIC EXPOSURE was produced by award-winning human rights and environmental issue filmmakers James Heddle and Mary Beth Brangan, of the Ecological Options Network, EON, and co-produced by Libby Kelley, national organizer and Director of Council on Wireless Technology Impacts, CWTI. It can be ordered in VHS or DVD from EON by phone 415-868-1900, website and email (57 minutes)
