OTTAWA, Oct. 28, 2013 /CNW/ -The former President of Microsoft Canada
will testify today that Health Canada has manipulated the outcome of a
safety review of radiation from cell phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi and
"We have uncovered documents that prove Health Canada is controlling the
so-called 'independent' safety review by the Royal Society of Canada,"
said Frank Clegg, now CEO of Canadians for Safe Technology
(C4ST). "Health Canada is ignoring the science that explains why some
Canadians are getting sick from microwave radiation."
The Royal Society of Canada is holding the public meeting in Ottawa
today to hear from Canadians who have developed symptoms such as
insomnia, headaches and heart palpitations from everyday wireless
devices. Doctors and researchers will also testify, and call for
stricter safety measures.
The Royal Society panel reviewing microwave safety has been dogged by
controversy. The chair of the panel resigned in July after he was
exposed for an undeclared conflict of interest.
