The World Health Organization Classifies RF Exposure (Wi-Fi) as a Class 2B Carcinogen

In May of 2011, the IARC (International Association for Research on Cancer) declared radio frequency radiation as a possible cause of cancer. Click HERE for official document. Since then Federal, provincial, and municipal health authorities in Canada have made the FALSE claim that the IARC declaration of RF as a possible human carcinogen refers ONLY to mobile phones. This is not and has never been the case. Wi-Fi and all RF-EMF emitting devices are included in this grouping.


Why The Confusion

IARC does not classify devices, they classify exposures. The 2B designation therefore applies to all RF-EMF exposures, regardless of the source. It isn’t the physical source that is being evaluated; it’s the type of emission that exits from any source, that is being evaluated.


Confirmation from IARC

In this video clip (click HERE) Dr. Jonathan M Samet, MD, University of Southern California, Chairman of the Working Group, states at the 3.12 minute mark “the designation of class 2B RF-EMFs is unspecified as to source, class 2B has broad applicability to sources that emit RF-EMFs".

Confirmation from Dr Robert A Baan PhD, Responsible Officer, Monograph 102 on RF-EMF, The IARC Monographs, IARC, Lyon, FRANCE

“Many other devices emit the same type of RF radiation, e.g.,base-station antennas, radio/tv antennas, WiFi stations, smart meters, etc. Therefore, all these fall under the same broad evaluation of “Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields.” Click HERE to read.

School Boards Rely on Health Canada’s Fundamentally Flawed (and Mysteriously Edited) RF Exposure Guideline SAFETY CODE 6

Health Canada has a guideline - Safety Code 6, which recommends limits for safe human exposure to RF electromagnetic energy. It was created in 1979 to protect federal workers on federal jobsites, not children in schools. It is based on 6 minutes of exposure, and is being used across Canada to rollout WiFi in classrooms.

It is disturbing to note that Health Canada historically did recognize that some people get sick from microwave radiation. But in the last “update” of the Safety Code in 2009, the only significant change was to delete the single sentence that read:

"Certain members of the general public may be more susceptible to harm from RF and microwave exposure."

This acknowledgement that some people are susceptible to harm from wireless radiation had been part of the safety code for more than a decade. It vanished about the same time Wi-Fi was rolled-out into all schools and offices.

SEND YOUR TRUSTEE CANDIDATES AN E-MAIL REQUESTING THEIR POSITON AND SUPPORT!


Select Recipients

Using supporting information from the body of this page, ask your trustee candidates to confirm their support for the following four asks...

  1. Allow teachers to turn the Wi-Fi router off in their classroom when access to the internet is not required.
  2. Create an education and safety program for students and teachers on how to use this technology more safely.
  3. Post the warnings written by the manufacturers of the devices contained in the product information of the Wi-Fi devices your Board has installed, as well as cell phones and tablets used in the classroom. Your students and teachers should be aware that the manufacturers do not deem the products to be safe in all situations.
  4. In your decision to deploy Wi-Fi in your schools, you are relying on Health Canada’s Safety Code 6. Invest the time to understand the significant flaws in the process Health Canada uses in its update of SC6.
Write your letters in the box below. Use the above ideas to help you.

In order to use this tool to submit messages to the Minister of Health and your School Board Trustee Candidates, you must agree to become a member of Canadians For Safe Technology.
