David O. Carpenter is Director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University at Albany, New York, where he also teaches Environmental Health Sciences at the School of Public Health, which he founded in 1985 before heading the New York State Department of Health’s Wadsworth Research Laboratories. In the early 1980s, he managed the New York State Power Lines Project, a series of studies that led to the confirmation that overexposure to residential magnetic fields increases the risk of childhood leukemia.

A public health physician, Dr. Carpenter received his doctorate from Harvard Medical School. He has 350 publications, 37 reviews and book chapters, and 12 other publications to his credit. His current specialty consists in linking common diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and Alzheimer's with exposure to pollutants such as PCBs and chlorinated pesticides.

David O. Carpenter is also the famous lead co-author of the independent BioInitiative Working Group Report. Published in 2007, it reviewed more than 2,000 studies on the health impacts of electromagnetic fields.

La Maison du 21e siècle magazine and the Quebec Association to Stop Air Pollution are proud to present Dr. Carpenter's talk entitled The Precautionary Principle in the Wireless Age. He will discuss sources of radiofrequencies (RF) in today's world, health effects of overexposure to these RFs, how national and international exposure standards are failing to protect public health, and recommendations on both governmental and personal steps that should be taken to protect public health, given that we will not be going back to the pre-wireless age.
