I’m really excited to announce that Martin Gledhill from EMF Services has agreed to talk us about safety concerning electromagnetic fields (5G and Cell towers)! (Bio below).
Because this is a rather controversial topic within the community, we have decided to make this a closed meeting for our group (and by invitation) so we can concentrate on the science rather than risk getting distracted by politics and/or conspiracy theories. Martin has kindly offered to hold a public meeting at a later date if there is demand.
Date – Monday 19 August
Time – 6-7pm
Location – Please get in touch to confirm location ([email protected])
Format – 30 minute presentation followed by 30 minute discussion
Cost – $5 (to help with cost of hall hire cost)
Martin Gledhill has an MA degree in Natural Sciences (Physics) from Cambridge University and an MSc in Medical Physics from the University of Otago. He is a member of the Australasian Radiation Protection Society and of the Bioelectromagnetics Society. He was head of the non-ionising radiation section at the National Radiation Laboratory of the New Zealand Ministry of Health, where he worked for over 20 years. In this position he:
Advised central and local government agencies on research findings into the health effects of ELF and RF fields and non-ionising radiation, and helping develop policy and information material in these areas
Presentation of expert evidence to local authority and Environment Court hearings on electrical infrastructure and radio transmitters
New Zealand representative to the WHO EMF Project
He is now heads EMF Services, a division of Monitoring and Advisory Services NZ Ltd (MAASNZ), that provides professional measurement and advisory services related to possible health effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs), such as the extremely low frequency (ELF) electric and magnetic fields found around any wiring, appliances or infrastructure carrying mains electricity, and the radiofrequency (RF) fields produced by radio transmitters and some industrial equipment.
