Dr Priyanka Bandara
ADHD & Environmental Health – A Critically Important Approach to Manage & Prevent Neurodevelopmental Disorders
In this presentation, Dr Priyanka Bandara will discuss the vulnerability of the developing brain of a child to toxic exposures and the importance of preventing/minimizing them to help children grow-up healthy. Different types of neurotoxins that have deleterious effects on nerves will be explained with a special focus on a poorly-addressed, yet scientifically evident neurotoxin that modern day children are commonly exposed to – radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation (RF-EMR), or colloquially speaking “wireless radiation”.
What does the Scientific Evidence Show and What Can We Do?
This is a critically important session for parents, educators and clinicians. The session will answer these questions and any others you may have:
- Is there credible scientific evidence showing “low” levels of wireless radiation from everyday wireless devices can impact health? If so, can you show us this evidence?
- Is there credible scientific evidence showing common wireless devices can interfere with the developing brain? If so, can you show us this evidence
- Why is the Australian health system not giving any warnings even though health agencies of several other countries and reputable medical organisations are?
- What action have other countries taken to protect children from wireless radiation?
- What can parents and teachers do to effectively reduce exposure and help children?
Dr Priyanka Bandara is an independent health researcher, former academic clinical and basic researcher at USyd, UNSW and Westmead and RPA hospitals. She has pursued environmental health field since 2012. She is an advisor to Environmental Health Trust USA (http://ehtrust.org) and an executive member of Oceania Radiofrequency Scientific Advisory Association (ORSAA) http://www.orsaa.org/. She is an associate editor for the journal of the Australasian College of Nutritional & Environmental Medicine (ACNEM) www.acnem.org.
Pri holds undergraduate and post graduate degrees from UNSW where she gained research experience in biochemistry & molecular genetics and molecular pharmacology. She then pursued academic clinical research in hepatology at Westmead and RPA hospitals through USyd Medicine before moving on to Children’s Hospital at Westmead managing the Neurogenetics Research Unit and the Institute for Neuroscience and Muscle Research.
Her current interest is in the cytotoxic effects of various environmental pollutants, particularly electromagnetic radiation, mainly in the form of microwaves that have been propagated extensively for mobile and wireless communication and surveillance purposes.
ADHD Support Australia is now endorsed to provide NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Registered Professional Development for teachers accredited at Proficient Teacher level.
