Research scientist Dr Mary Redmayne will examine the issue of emissions from transmitting devices and their sources and what can be considered safe levels. She’ll discuss the contentious field of research results and WHO, Ministry of Health and various scientists’ responses to the research and look at best practice in minimising microwave exposure without foregoing the technology.

Listen to Mary's interview on National Radio with Jesse Mulligan.

By the end of the session, you’ll be able to:
- Describe typical electromagnetic emissions from mobile phones and other commonly encountered devices
- State New Zealand’s approach for ensuring public safety around transmitting equipment, and compare what aspects that does and does not cover
- State some basics of what the research shows and recognise differences in responses from the -
World Health Organisation, the Ministry of Health, and those doing the research
- Demonstrate techniques of how to minimise exposure from e-devices and from the environment, and identify what the manufacturers advise.
- You're welcome to bring along any portable transmitting device (e.g. mobile phone, tablet or e-book) you may have. Bring pen and paper if you like to take notes - a print-out of the presentation will also be provided.
