Paul Doyon is the CEO and founder of two enterprises — Electromagnetic Safe Planet (ESP) and EMF Refugee.
He is a certified as a Building Biology Practitioner (BBP) and Electromagnetic Radiation Specialist (EMRS) with the International Institute of Building Biology and Ecology located in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
He has been working for approximately the last twelve years to educate people and raise awareness regarding the adverse health effects induced by exposures to man-made electromagnetic radiation (EMR) from both electrical appliances & electrical wiring (power frequency) and from wireless devices & cell phone base stations (radio frequency [RF]).
He has also over the past 10 years been envisioning the formation of an NGO/NPO called EMF REFUGEE: THE INTERNATIONAL COALITION FOR AN ELECTROMAGNETIC SAFE PLANET (IC-ESP), which would serve as an educational, support, and action-oriented organization calling for (1) EMR-safe zones, (2) non-corporate funded research, (3) drastic reductions in present electrosmog levels, (4) restrictions on tower placements near schools and hospitals, and (5) the development of safer alternative technologies (e.g. fiber-optics).
He started a Yahoo Group in 2006 called EMF Refugee (now with over 1000 members) and a blog called The Microwave Factor Blog (with over 6000 posts) after becoming extremely ill in 2005 living in the vicinity of several cell phone towers/base stations while residing in Japan and had thus become an EMF Refugee himself.
At that time, he coined the term, EMF Refugee, as he had to become one himself fleeing an area with high levels of RF EMR surrounded by cell phone towers.
He recently (four years ago) moved back to the United States after living abroad for 25 years in a total of six different foreign countries — Japan, Australia, China, India, Thailand, and Chile — where he taught English as a Foreign Language (EFL) and English as a Second Language (ESL) at the university level.
He has been applying his research, writing, and educating skills he gained from years in education to the electromagnetic radiation problem.
