Canadian Doctors Urge Health Canada to Toughen Guidelines on Microwave Radiation from Cell Phones, Cell Towers and WiFi

July 9, 2014

OTTAWA, July 9, 2014 /CNW/ - A group of medical doctors will urge Health Canada today to recognize that microwave radiation from common wireless devices is making some of their patients sick.

The group includes physicians from across Canada and professors from four universities who say there is now "considerable evidence and research that exposure to WiFi, Smart Meters and Cell towers can have an adverse impact," on human health.

The doctors will submit a letter of concern in response to Health Canada's invitation for public input to Safety Code 6, the guideline that dictates how much wireless radiation is safe for Canadians in our homes, schools and offices.

This is the first time Health Canada has invited public input into its safety guidelines for wireless technology.

The doctors' submission is backed-up by more than fifty international scientists who have also signed a declaration calling for lower microwave limits - especially for children.

The scientists cite dozens of peer-reviewed studies that show learning and memory deficit, increased cancer rates, heart rhythm irregularities and fertility issues from exposure to common wireless devices like cell phones and WiFi routers.

The doctors will request that Health Canada minimize the allowable microwave exposure in schools and provide all Canadian doctors with new guidelines to recognize the emerging health problems related to microwave exposure.
