Canadian “Expert” Panel Presents Disappointing and Biased Review of Current RF Exposure Limits

Canadian “Expert” Panel Presents Disappointing and Biased Review of Current RF Exposure Limits.

An expert panel of the Royal Society of Canada (RSC) released a report on April 1, 2014, entitled “A Review of Safety Code 6 (2013): Health Canada’s Safety Limits for Exposure to Radiofrequency Fields.”  Although the report is comprehensive at 165 pages in length, it clearly presents a disappointing and biased account of the current state of science on RF exposure effects and what to do in response to those effects.

RSC Report on RF

As summarized by one Toronto new source regarding the new report, “Federal guidelines that spell out safe exposure levels of radiofrequency waves emitted by cellphones and other wireless devices appear to be mostly adequate, but research to clarify the potential risk of cancer should be aggressively pursued, an expert panel recommends.”

In other words, there is some evidence that RF exposure might be harmful, but we need more studies to quantify the possible risk.  Where have we heard that before?
