A research fellow from the University of Bedfordshire is aiming to show how much radiation we are being exposed to in a ‘radiation walk’ in London next week.
David Miller, from the University’s Research Institute for Media, Art and Design, aims to prove that we are surrounded by radiation caused by transmitters and masts during a walk in Finsbury Park, London, on Saturday, 21 July.
The venture is part of the Invisible Forces exhibition being held at the Furtherfield Gallery at Finsbury Park and David will guide visitors around the area whilst measuring the microwave radiation with an electrosmog detector. This will then be marked on a map of the area to show the extent of the radiation.
Speaking about his walk, David said: “I want to show people that there’s a lot more to their community than meets the eye. I want to show them that there is another level to their community and there is a hidden story everywhere we go.”
He added: “The UK doesn’t take microwave radiation seriously – there have been many scientific studies into this controversial subject and the results are quite alarming.
“They show that people exposed to high levels of microwave radiation can suffer from nausea and insomnia, and in extreme cases, cancer.”
David’s interest in microwave radio began when he looked at the number of masts in his area of residence Crystal Palace where as the highest point in London, it is covered in masts and transmitters.
He said: “The level of radiation in this area of London is off the scale. However, industrial studies often show that these masts are safe. I used to work for a mobile phone company and I was always very sceptical about the whole thing.”
