KERRY CROFTON, Ph.D. received her Doctorate in Psychology from Union Institute & University in Cincinnati, Ohio. Her dissertation was based on research she conducted for the Canadian Navy using mindfulness techniques she developed in the treatment of essential hypertension.
Kerry also worked with pilots and air traffic controllers and in 1989 was appointed by the Privy Council of Canada to the Civil Aviation Tribunal. For many years she directed a biofeedback institute, with a clinical practice addressing health-related issues, including people with a range of environmental sensitivities.
From 1986 to 1996 she wrote a newspaper column focusing on environmental health. In 1998 her first book, The Healthy Type A was published by MacMillan Canada. It was based on the patient education programs she did for the Canadian and American Heart Foundations.
Kerry is the Co-Founder with Stephen Sinatra, M.D. and Executive Director of the International Advisory Board Doctors for Safer Schools and member of the International EMF (Electro-Magnetic Frequency) Alliance.
For the past several years, she has focused on electro-pullution. In researching her award-winning book Wireless Radiation Rescue—Safeguard Your Family from Electro-pollution (2011 Global WellBeing Books), she has become well versed in this issue. She is not a scientist – her expertise lies in health education and coaching people and organizations in effective change. Her background in Psychology has turned out to be an asset – she has counseled many people dealing with the issues of digital addiction and electro-sensitivity (ES). Like other environmental health conditions, ES is not "all in your head."
Kerry has brought together the research and recommendations of leading authorities and with their collaboration she developed a strategic plan for healthy aging in the digital age. The International Advisory Board addresses this public health issue – especially how electro-magnetic radiation adversely effects children and how to reduce cancer and other risks in this vulnerable generation.
And it's not just cell phones! Yes, this technology is everywhere, but government safety standards are not protecting us – there is evidence of harm at much lower levels. The good news: there are safer-tech solutions.
Kerry resides in Victoria, BC, Canada and she may be contacted through her book's website www.radiationrescue.org.
She will speak on Wireless Radiation Rescue: Using Cell Phones More Safely To Reduce Cancer Risks & Aging Well In The Digital Age.
