Health Canada Manipulates "Independent" Safety Review of Cell Phone Radiation, Former Microsoft President to Testify

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 smart meters. 

"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.
