It also has a list of useful links. 
  • The EMR Safety network (Australia) - the network seeks to create public awareness of environmental electromagnetic field radiation (EMR) by providing information about EMR and potential effects on health. As well as information, there is a list of links.  Also EMR Safety International
  • Victorian Department of Human Services Environment Health Information Radiation webpage - the website has information on legislation, the radiation safety program, and more.
  • Powerwatch - this UK organisation is independent ofgovernment and industry, whose charter is to gather information on EMFs from around the world and make it available for non-technical people.
  • Microwave News: a comprehensive sourceof the latest news and opinion on low- and high-frequency electromagnetic fields (EMFs).
  • Swedish Association for the Electro-Hyper-Sensitive - a very comprehensive site for information on the condition of Electrosensitivity as well as links to other sites (in English)
  • The EMR Network (USA) - 'created to providea forum for effective and balanced information for citizen-action groups, the media, municipal agents, government officials and scientists alike.'
  • The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency - note however, that this organisation is the official Australian Government agency and tends take the line that there insufficient evidence of negative health effects of much of the EMR spectrum.
