OTTAWA, Dec. 2 /CNW/ - Canada's Parliamentary Health Committee today recommended Health Canada develop a system for reporting headaches, dizziness, nausea, heart palpitations and other symptoms of microwave exposure from WiFi and cell phones.
"This is welcome support from Parliament for the children suffering from WiFi exposure in their schools," said Rodney Palmer of the Simcoe County Safe School Committee.
The Parliamentary Health Committee held three days of testimony that heard scientists from around the world criticize Health Canada's lax microwave safety guidelines. It also heard that children report an increased number of symptoms associated with microwave exposure, after blanket WiFi systems are installed in schools.
