Lloyd Morgan Biography

Lloyd Morgan is an electronic engineer by training with 38 years of industrial experience to the Vice Presidential level (retired 2002), a member of international science organizations, the Bioelectromagnetics Society (see www.bioelectromagnetics.org), and Senior Research Fellow, Environmental Health Trust (http://www.environmentalhealthtrust.org/), Scientific Advisor, EM Radiation Research Trust (http://www.radiationresearch.org/), an investigator of a childhood leukemia cluster in Fallon, Nevada with a team from the University of California, San Francisco, USA, a columnist for Powerwatch (http://www.powerwatch.org.uk/columns/morgan/index.asp), and a brain tumor survivor.

His latest science paperEstimating the Risk of Brain Tumors from Cellphone Use: Published Case-Control Studies is available on-line from Pathophysiology (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/publication?issn=09284680&volume=16&issue=2-3) reports that the Interphone studies on the risk of brain tumor from cellphone use has a systemic-protective-skew that result in an underestimation of the risk of brain tumors..

He is a co-author on two previously published epidemiological papers: Long-term use of cellular phones and brain tumours: increased risk associated with use for > or =10 years.[1] This paper was awarded “one of the top ten articles for 2007” in the journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine http://oem.bmj.com/misc/topten07.dtl, and, A new electromagnetic exposure metric: high frequency voltage transients associated with increased cancer incidence in teachers in a California school”.[2]

He is the lead author of the Report, Cellphones and Brain Tumors:  15 Reasons for Concern (http://www.radiationresearch.org/pdfs/15reasons.asp), which was widely distributed to the media and government officials August 25, 2009.

In November, 2009 Lloyd Morgan was a distinquished member of a Scientific Panel at the International EMF Conference in Stavanger, Norway: “Electromagnetic fields and health: Science pointing to new biologically-based guidelines.” whose task was to arrived at new EMF exposure limits based on scientific findings of harm

Since 1995 Lloyd Morgan has been involved in the study of exposure to electromagnetic fields and resultant health problems. Beginning in 1995, after recovering from a brain tumor, and each year since 1995, he has attended multiple science meetings including, among others, the Bioelectromagnetics Society, the Neuro-Oncology Society, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, the 2000 Consensus Conference [to designate all brain tumor types with their appropriate codes), and the Brain Tumor Epidemiology Consortium.  He has presented at the Marin County (California) Dept. of Health Services in 2003, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine in 2004 Bioelectromagnetics Society in 2005 2008, 2009, and 2018, the Children with Leukemia conference in 2008, and the Radiation Research Trust (RRT), International Conference, EMF & Health, A Global Issue, in Sept. 2008, and to physicians and health advocate organizations.

He was author of two legislative Acts concerning brain tumors, one in California (passed into law in 2000), and the other in the US Congress (passed into law in 2002) and currently has another Bill introduced in the US Congress, the National Childhood Brain Tumor Prevention Network Act of 2009 (HR 653 and S 305), mandating a comprehensive study into the causes of the leading cause of cancer death in children, brain tumors.
