Over twenty medical doctors urge Health Canada today to recognize an alarming trend as microwave radiation from common wireless devices is making some of their patients sick.
More than a dozen of these doctors are specialists in Environmental Medicine, including a past President of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, and professors of medicine from the Universities of Toronto, British Columbia, Ottawa and McMaster.
The doctors will submit a letter of concern to Health Canada stating that science now points to the probability that low level microwave radiation from cell phones, Wi-Fi and cell towers can cause a range of health problems, including infertility and cancer.
The doctors are supported today by more than fifty international experts in biology and microwave radiation who agree that Health Canada must update its safety guidelines if we are to protect Canadians from ailments such as heart rhythm irregularities and increased cancer rates. They also underscore the need to protect children.
“Health Canada’s Safety Code 6 is based on an obsolete account and analysis of Radiofrequency Radiation research”, said Dr. David Carpenter MD, PhD., Director, Department of Public Health, State University of New York, Albany.
“Health Canada has disregarded or minimized certain recent studies, such as cancer, DNA damage, protein synthesis, stress response, and detrimental biological and health effects in humans that occur at radiation levels far below the existing Safety Code 6 Guideline”, he said.
C4ST has identified 139 studies not reviewed by HC that show harm from wireless devices at levels significantly below SC6.

Despite being presented by Health Canada to be a public consultation, they inexplicably announced (on their website) that "...only feedback of a scientific nature... can be considered in the finalization of a revised Safety Code 6". C4ST feels that this decision fundamentally excludes Canadians who suffer from electrosensitivity and others, simply because they are non-scientific. Excluding such testimony contradicts the idea of this being a "public consultation" open to all Canadians, as well as contradicts the openness and transparency commitment made by Health Canada and Health Minister Rona Ambrose.
Below is an extract from Health Canada's website, C4ST has highlighted the controversial exclusion.
