In response to yesterday's mailing on Automotive Radar, I received a number of informative comments. One that I would like to share (with the author's permission) is reproduced below. Dr. Metsis provides very
useful detail about sensors and communications systems to complement yesterday's mailing.
While the picture presented below is quite disturbing, it should be emphasized this is one piece in the much larger toxic stimulus puzzle. Our book chapter on health effects of combined toxic stimuli including
non-ionizing radiation (attached) makes clear that combinations of toxic stimuli have the potential to exert far more serious health effects than toxic stimuli applied in isolation. This derives from potential synergistic and additive effects.
A recent monograph on combined effects supports these conclusions (https://smartech.gatech.edu/handle/1853/59719).
It states that "these combinations 1) typically lower the threshold constituent exposure levels associated with damage compared to 2) tests of combination constituents
run in isolation.....there is no reason to believe today that ANY of the Exposure Limits on potentially toxic stimuli that have been set by ANY of the regulatory agencies are fully protective against serious adverse health effects.
While radiofrequency radiation (RFR) is used for illustrative purposes in a number of the examples presented, the conclusions are applicable
to essentially all potential contributing factors to disease amenable to Exposure Limits."
A follow-up monograph confirms the above conclusions and shows that we have essentially zero government protection from any of these toxic stimuli, including non-ionizing radiation (https://smartech.gatech.edu/handle/1853/60067).
Unfortunately, we have extremely limited data on test results from combinations of toxic stimuli, and what little data we have come mainly from combinations of two toxic stimuli. Real-world toxic stimuli exposures would include those listed by Dr. Metsis
below, PLUS lifestyle, iatrogenic, biotoxin, occupational and environmental, etc, toxic stimuli exposures. So, for individuals exposed to many of the toxic stimuli in the categories above, and who may have genetic disposition to various diseases, the addition
of the non-ionizing radiation toxic stimuli summarized by Dr. Metsis could be the final 'straw-that-breaks-the-camel's-back'.

I got your email from a colleague and I will attempt to pass some further and perhaps useful info
Modern cars namely 2018 models have high low-frequency radiation arising from many wireless sensors incorporated in today's automotive technology.
Attached is a drawing with most of these sensors you find in modern vehicles.
Depending on the wiring architecture inside the car, EMFs are more pronounced depending also on fuse box location, battery and alternator position and currents flowing close to the cabin.
EMFs in a car in motion with brakes applied + ABS activation may well exceed 100 mG. Adding RF radiation from blue tooth, Wi Fi, the cell phones of the passengers, the 4G antennas laid out all along the major roads plus the radars of cars already equipped
with, located behind, left or right of a vehicle, the total EMF and EMR fields will exceed any limits humans can tolerate over a long period of time.
EHS people are nowadays searching for pre 2000 models otherwise they cannot drive them and low frequency EMF is very difficult to shield.
In Sweden with more that 200000 EHS citizens there are special Navigation maps showing the roads these people have to follow avoiding cell phone base stations.
With the 5G application and V2V and V2I connectivity, the conditions inside the car will be appalling and this is why we will have autonomous vehicles because driving under these conditions cannot be sustained over a long period.
Cars in effect will be micro-wave ovens on wheels! The attached info is from two slides I use in my EMR presentation showing also statistics of car accidents in US, a good excuse for adding all these lethal gadgets to vehicles.
