Tribute to Neil Cherry (From Sarah Benson)
Following is the tribute that Senator Lyn Allison paid to Neil
the Australian Senate last night:
Senator ALLISON (Victoria) - I also wish to pay tribute to
Zealand scientist, environmentalist and regional councillor,
Cherry, who also died on 24 May this year. Dr Cherry was an
Professor of Environmental Health at Lincoln University and
professional scientific background in physics, biophysics,
agricultural and human biometeorology, renewable energy, energy
efficiency and environmental epidemiology. He was involved
in a wide
variety of scientific and community projects. He developed
expertise in human biometeorology, air quality and the effects

Fellow councillors described Dr Cherry as a visionary-a man
tremendous intelligence and courage, including the courage
to speak his
views even when they were unpopular.
I met Dr Cherry when he visited Melbourne and Canberra-in
fact, when he
came to the parliament. He spoke publicly on the potentially
effects on human health of low-level microwave radiation from
phones and mobile phone antennas. His recent work was the
thousands of papers on cell biology, biochemistry, biophysics,
and electromagnetic radiation. He concluded that the published
scientific data showed that electromagnetic radiation, or
capable of causing cell damage and neurological problems.
In 2001 I chaired the Senate inquiry into this area, to which
made a submission, and he appeared before the committee via
teleconference. It was an indication of Dr Cherry's effectiveness
he was attacked by the government because he dared to challenge

that he was
attacked and I think he was taken aback somewhat at the remarks
were made, but he was also accustomed to his critics being

One of Dr Cherry's many findings was that exposure to electromagnetic
radiation could result in Alzheimer's disease, or dementia.

Now it may or may not be the case that EMR is implicated
in all or even

Dr Cherry's standing and credibility was confirmed on 1 January
the award of a Royal Honour of Officer of New Zealand Order

I offer my sincere condolences to Neil's wife Gae. People
like Dr Cherry
are rare. He will be sadly missed, both as a scientist and
as a human being.

The health office report:
