April 21, 2010, Washington, D.C. A new report, "The BRAGTM Antenna Ranking of Schools" ("BRAGTM Ranking"), will be unveiled next Wednesday by Professor Magda Havas, PhD of Trent University, Canada, along with Jim Turner, Esq., Chairman of Citizens for Health, Camilla Rees, Founder of ElectroMagneticHealth.org, Jante Newton, President of the EMR Policy Institute, The ElectroSensitive Society, and Christine Hoch, Executive Director of Moms for Safe Wireless. The BRAGTM Antenna Ranking of Schools report will be introducted in the Media Teleconference on Wednesday, April 28 at 2:30 p.m. Eastern. RSVP to emily@electromagnetichealth.org for dial-instructions.

The BRAGTM Ranking is the result of a multi-year study of the school children's potential exposure to cell phone antennas and base stations in U.S. state capitols prepared by Dr. Havas and students at Trent University, Canada. Exposure metrics for approximately 6,000 public and private schools were assessed. A composite grade was generated for each school based on 1) how close the nearest antenna was to the school, 2) how many antennas were located within 0.25 miles or approximately 400 meters (the distance within which scientific research documents mental, emotional and physical symptoms in adults), 3) within 0.6 miles, or approximately 1 kilometer, from the school.

Grades, and rankings, for individual schools, as well as a comparative ranking of state capitols, and the full 173-page BRAGTM Antenna Ranking of Schools report, are available on an embargoed basis at http://files.me.com/magda.havas/jz62ck.

The embargo will lift on Wednesday, April 28 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern. E-mail emily@electromagnetichealth.org for a password to view the BRAGTM report.
