Powerwatch Columnist Index
Powerwatch has just started a section on the site dedicated to columnists, who provide their efforts on a purely voluntary basis.
Background: Alasdair Philips is qualified in both Electrical and Electronic Engineering and in Agricultural Engineering. Since 1986 he has built up a considerable knowledge of EMF bioeffects, and is one of the leading 'alternative' voices on the subject in the UK. Powerwatch is used as a forum for a small group of knowledgeable engineers and scientists who are concerned about the consequences of irradiated 'blue world' we are creating.

Background: Primarily qualified in Information Technology (primarily database management and analysis), Graham Philips has worked with Powerwatch due to the family connections with Alasdair since 2004. Graham is a member of the SAGE government stakeholder group "science forum", assessing review approaches to EMF science and health effects, and trustee of the Radiation Research Trust.

Background: Lloyd Morgan is an electronic engineer by training, a Director of the Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States (see www.cbtrus.org) a member of the international science group, the Bioelectromagnetics Society (see www.bioelectromagnetics.org) and a volunteer with the National Brain Tumour Foundation (see www.braintumor.org). Since 1995 I have devoted myself to the study of electromagnetic fields and health problems. With such a focus in mind I have attended, and sometimes presented at, multiple science meetings each year including, among others, those of the Bioelectromagnetics Society, the Neuro-Oncology Society, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine and the Brain Tumor Epidemiology Consortium.
All statements are mine and mine alone and do not represent positions or opinions of either the Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States or the Bioelectromagnetics Society or any other organization.

Background: Denis Henshaw is a Professor of Physics and the head of the Human Radiation Effects Group at the University of Bristol. The Group carries out research into the effects on the human body of both ionising and non-ionising radiation. In addition to the environmental factors linked to childhood leukaemia, the Group is researching the role of corona ion emission from high voltage powerlines and of magnetic fields in the various health effects linked to electric and magnetic field exposures. The Group is supported by CHILDREN with LEUKAEMIA and the UK Department of Health. In the 1980s, Professor Henshaw pioneered the assessment of radon by schoolchildren (using a special plastic material called TASTRAK). The results from the schools study caused a large-scale government-funded re-assessment of UK radon levels which had previously been greatly under-estimated.
