    The maximum allowable occupational exposure level for radiation is 50 mSv in a single year. The study reflects what previous research has found regarding the relationship between ionizing radiation and mesothelioma. We have limited copies available for free. Free copies of the book are only available in the United States, Australia and. Scientific evidence increasingly shows wireless radiation causes cancer and infertility and other health effects, but due to a flawed assumption in safety guidelines, governments in the United States, Canada, and the UK (and many other countries) are allowing their citizens to be overexposed to microwave radiation from wireless technology.

Ionizing radiation (ionising radiation) is radiation that carries sufficient energy to detach electrons from atoms or molecules, thereby ionizing them. Ionizing radiation is made up of energetic subatomic particles, ions or atoms moving at high speeds (usually greater than 1% of the speed of light), and electromagnetic waves on the high-energy end of the electromagnetic.

By the early 21st century in the United States, such human-made radiation contributed about 18 percent of the total annual radiation exposure to the human population.

Factual information confirming this relationship and also demonstrating the need for reviewing permissible exposure levels for workers is given.However, higher-energy short-wave radiation in many occupational sources can penetrate and disrupt living cells and increase cancer risk, so exposure must be monitored.

The risk of cancer from radiation exposure reportedly increases as the dose of radiation increases. Anyone who works in a setting with a known radiation source is at risk.
