WHO ruled Wi-Fi could be possibly carcinogenic, Health Canada maintains it is “safe”

- October 5th, 2012

In 2011, the World Health Organization classified radiation emitted by wireless devices, including cell phones and Wi-Fi, as possibly carcinogenic and called for more research. There is no mention of the WHO’s ruling in this video, currently posted on the Health Canada website. The federal department says Wi-Fi is “safe.”

    Radio frequency is like many other types of energy and the effects they have on organisms are predictable and can be summarized as follows:

    Health risks increase with proximity and exposure time. In other words if you have your wireless router or cell phone close to your body (esp soft tissue) on a regular or ongoing basis your risk is greater than if the devices are installed a distance away or if you are near them infrequently. The degree to which they are considered “safe” also depends on the methods and definitions scientists may use.

    It’s that simple.

    Maybe the sedentary lifestyle of those spending 10 hours a day on the computer is to blame not some radio waves?

    Rob Black, so simple it certainly ain’t.

    I suggest you read as intro into the complexity, EPA & IARC veteran scientist Carl Blackman’s ch. 14 in the (online; wrongfully maligned) Bioinitiative Report.

    There are “windows” of bioactivity, resonance factors, biovariability & much more to consider. Were no human harm discernable, there are plenty of studies showing rf decimates other creatures. Worldwide insect decline, incl. more commonly reported CCD of domesticated bees, is connected with rf exposures. Scholars who have demonstrated such harm have been persecuted — Ms Kirkup, can you cover & get published on that end of the issue?
