“Health Canada’s safety standard for wireless radiation is officially out of date,” said Clegg, who is now CEO of Canadians for Safe Technology. “Our Medical Officers of Health, our doctors, even our school Boards are obliged to put precautions in place now.”
The biggest study ever conducted on microwave radiation on lab animals has revealed a causal relationship between cell phones and brain cancer in rats. The twenty-five million dollar study was funded by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The release of the study Friday linking cancer in rats to the type of radiation emitted by cell phones presents some of the strongest implications in more than two decades of research that higher doses of such signals could be linked to tumors in laboratory animals—unsettling news for billions of mobile phone users worldwide, the website Scientific American reported. http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how-might-cell-phone-signals-cause-cancer1/
The results also showed cell phones can cause heart cancer, and there was more illness in male rats than females.
“This new evidence means the issue is urgent,” said Clegg. “These devices are carving out our future, and they’re giving us cancer. Health Canada should update our safety guidelines immediately to keep up with science.”
C4ST has found that NO studies on children showing that radiofrequency/microwave radiation is safe and NO studies that prove continuous exposure is safe.
The C4ST website says that: Children are not little adults, their skulls are thinner and the tissues of a child’s head, including the bone marrow and the eye, absorb significantly more energy than those in an adult head. A peer reviewed study by Gandhi et. al published in 2012, showed that radiation from a cell phone penetrated 10% of an adult head; 70% of the skull of a five year old. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21999884 – CNW
