Doctors Call for Protection from Radiofrequency Radiation

 

Declaration: Doctors Call for Protection from Radiofrequency Radiation Exposure

Date of Issuance: July 9, 2014

 

Physicians Call for Health Canada to Provide:

  1. Wireless safety standards that are more protective of the health of Canadians; and
  2. Guidelines and resources to assist Canadian physicians in assessing and managing health problems related to microwave radiation.

There is considerable evidence and research from various scientific experts that exposure to microwave radiation from wireless devices; Wi-Fi, smart meters and cell towers can have an adverse impact on human physiological function. [1] [2]  Many recent and emerging studies from university departments and scientific sources throughout the world support the assertion that energy from wireless devices may be causatively linked to various health problems including reproductive compromise, develop mental impacts, hormonal dysregulation and cancer. In fact, in 2011 the World Health Organization listed microwave radiation as a Class 2B possible carcinogen. [3] and subsequent research strengthened the evidence that a stronger designation may be justified. [4] [5] [6]

Out of sincere concern for the health of Canadians at all stages of life – from the developing fetus through childhood and into adulthood – we respectfully request that: Continue reading

The FCC protects industry – not people!

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is NOT a health protection organization. The FCC is a corporation listed on Dun and Bradstreet (like ALL the so-called ‘government agencies’) and is headquartered in WASHINGTON DC. The employees of the FCC DO NOT work for the American people!!!! Their job is NOT to protect Americans from harmful Smart Meters and/or other wireless technology. The job of the FCC is to give cover (plausible deniability) and credibility to the wireless industry and protect them from lawsuits.

The following, directly from the FCC website, is a good example of ‘word crafting’ aka propaganda. Spin words and phrases are used ad nauseum. However, the first sentence tells it all.

Current Exposure Limits from the FCC web site:
“While there is no federally developed national standard for safe levels of exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy, many federal agencies have addressed this important issue. In addition to the Federal Communications Commission, federal health and safety agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have been actively involved in monitoring and investigating issues related to RF exposure. For example, the FDA has issued guidelines for safe RF emission levels from microwave ovens, and it continues to monitor exposure issues related to the use of certain RF devices such as cellular telephones. NIOSH conducts investigations and health hazard assessments related to occupational RF exposure.” Continue reading

Health Effects from Cell Phone Tower Radiation

WHILE THE U.S. FEDERAL COMMUNICATION COMMISSION SAYS THAT THERE IS NO EVIDENCE PROVING ELECTROMAGNETIC FREQUENCIES ARE HARMFUL, OTHERS HAVE PROVEN THEY ARE!

“To claim there is no adverse effect from phone towers flies in the face of a large body of evidence.”
Dr. Neil Cherry, biophysicist.

Health Effects from Cell Phone Tower Radiation

by Karen J. Rogers

The safety of cell phone towers is the subject of extensive scientific debate. There is a growing body of scientific evidence that the electromagnetic radiation they emit, even at low levels, is dangerous to human health.

The cell phone industry is expanding quickly, with over 100,000 cell phone towers now up across the U.S., which is expected to increase ten-fold over the next five years. The industry has set what they say are ” safe levels” of radiation exposure, but there are a growing number of doctors, physicists, and health officials who strongly disagree, and foresee a public health crisis.

Scientists Call on Government to Protect Public from Wireless Radiation Exposure

More than 50 scientists from 18 nations called on government to minimize the public’s exposure to the radiation emitted by wireless devices including cell and cordless phones, Wi-Fi, smart meters and baby monitors.

BERKELEY, Calif. – Today, fifty-four scientists from 18 nations who study the effects of radiofrequency (RF) radiation submitted a declaration to Health Canada calling on government’s need to minimize the public’s exposure to this pollutant which is emitted by wireless devices including cell phones, cordless phones, Wi-Fi, broadcast antennas, smart meters, and baby monitors.

The scientists signed a public declaration in which they raise serious concerns regarding Safety Code 6 guidelines finding them obsolete and inadequate to protect the public from RF radiation. The regulatory standards based upon these guidelines allow for wireless devices that emit RF radiation at levels that have been found in many studies to cause cancer, DNA damage, stress responses, and other harmful effects in humans. The document notes that the World Health Organization classified electromagnetic fields at both extremely low frequency in 2001 and RF ranges in 2011 as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.”

Currently, RF exposure guidelines in four countries. China, Russia, Italy, and Switzerland, based on biological effects, are 100 times more stringent than Canadian (and U.S.) guidelines.
