Effects of “wireless” radiation on children

Mar. 23, 2023 / A major peer-reviewed publication reports that many aspects of child development can be affected by radiofrequency “wireless” radiation, and screen time.

Leading international scientists find impacts on bonding, speech acquisition, behaviour, socialization, learning and addictions. Cancer risks are also increased.

Recommendations include use of wired technologies, that wireless radiation exposures be “ALARA” (as low as reasonably achievable), that physicians query use of tech in well-child visits, and research to prevent and investigate electrohypersensitivity.

“Wireless” radiation must be addressed to protect biodiversity

Biodiversity is suffering “death by a thousand cuts.” All contributors must be addressed in the International Convention on Biological Diversity, including radiation from modern technologies. Learn more on the new website.

BACKGROUND AND UPDATE: Experts and citizens’ groups called for a moratorium on auction of more 5G spectrum. Industry told the feds that they don’t want it now.

Analyses of input to the federal government shows surprising common ground—Industry doesn’t want to use this high frequency spectrum.

Hundreds of citizens joined a coalition of Canadian experts, and health and environmental organizations calling for a moratorium on 5G spectrum auctions. Indeed, hundreds of studies since Canada’s last science review show human and environmental harms from “wireless” radiofrequency radiation. There is, however, no research on additional higher frequencies used for 5G.

Did you know Canada completely lacks environmental protection against radiofrequency radiation? There is no evidence this untested tech is safe in the long run. Pausing sales that increase “wireless” radiation with higher frequency spectrum is the prudent choice.

In 2017 the government didn’t listen. On September 6th, 2022, the Joint Statement was submitted. A period for reply comments closed November 8th, 2022.

Federal consultation yields surprising common ground: the 5G mmWave auction is premature at best

There is surprising agreement between telecommunications companies and citizens’ groups. The spectrum auction in the 26, 28 and 38 GHz bands should not proceed as planned.


Joint Statement calling for a moratorium on 5G expansion

Prevent Cancer Now, on behalf of experts and other organizations submitted a Joint Statement to Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) opposing release of more spectrum in the 26, 28 and 38 GHz Bands.

Six reasons to say NO to release of more mmWave spectrum

There has been no research on the long-term health effects of mmWaves. There is strong scientific evidence that radiation from current (pre-5G) wireless technologies causes serious adverse effects. 5G will worsen the existing problem.

Hundreds of recent scientific reports show “wireless” radiofrequency harms

Hundreds of peer-reviewed scientific publications since Health Canada’s most recent review of radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation show serious acute and chronic effects in humans as well as diverse biota.
