OTTAWA, April 28 2015 /CNW/ - Medical specialists from Canada and the United States will testify to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Health today that Canada is falling behind other countries when it comes to protecting our children from wireless radiation.
The Committee is conducting hearings to review Canada's safety guidelines for exposure to microwave radiation from cell phones, WiFi and other wireless devices.
Dr. Martha Herbert from Harvard University Medical School will explain the links between wireless devices used by pregnant women, and the steady increase in autism in North America.
Dr. Devra Davis, a public health expert and co-recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize will explain the increasingly strong connection between wireless devices and cancer.
Dr. Riina Bray of Women's College Hospital in Toronto will report on the rapidly rising number of Canadians who are becoming hyper-sensitive from common wireless exposures such as teachers and students reacting to WiFi in their classrooms.
The Standing Committee on Health advises Parliament on national health policy. It has already heard from cancer specialists, biologists and a former president of Microsoft Canada, who each reported that Health Canada's current safety guidelines are out of date and Parliament should intervene to keep Canadians safe, as the use of wireless devices especially among children continues to rise.
Time: 3:30 pm EDT
Place: The Valour Building, Room 228. 151 Sparks St., Ottawa.
Dr. Martha Herbert MD, Harvard University Medical School, Boston.
Dr. Devra Davis PhD., Environmental Health Trust, Washington DC
