Adey dies

Veteran EMR researcher Dr Ross Adey has died at the age of 82.

Adey, who originally haled from Australia, spent most of his working life conducting research into the effects of EMR in the US.

He is particularly renowned for his work on calcium ion efflux and on cancer promotion.

In the latter part of his career, Adey courageously advocated lower exposure standards. “The laboratory evidence for athermal effects of both ELF and RF/Microwave fields now constitutes a major body of scientific literature in peer-reviewed journals. It is my personal view that to continue to ignore this work in the course of standard setting is irresponsible to the point of being a public scandal.” (August 1995)
