Telecommunications- Authority to Permit the Installation of Stand-Alone Antenna Poles
Published on Dec 2, 2013 Dr Anthony Miller from the University of Toronto's Dalla Lana School of Public Health presents to Toronto Council that RF exposure should be classified as a 2A (probable carcinogen), not a 2B (possible carcinogen)
This is a 3-minute video of a November 2013 presentation by Dr. Anthony B. Miller in which he states his belief that wireless radiation would be classified "2A PROBABLE HUMAN CARCINOGEN" if it were evaluated today. Dr. Miller sat on the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) committee when IARC made the decision to classify radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (wireless radiation from any sources) as a "Category 2B possible human carcinogen" (May 2011).
This clip is his presentation to Toronto Councillors at the City of Toronto Government Management Committee regarding the proliferation of increased density of wireless radiation emitted by cellular network towers/antennas installed below 15-metre height in Toronto.
"Health guidelines concerning the allowable level of radio frequency (RF) radiation emitted by cellular towers in Toronto will remain in place despite a recommendation from the city's medical health officer to drop the existing safety policy.
"The recommendation by Dr. McKeown, medical officer of health for Toronto to cancel the city's Prudent Avoidance policy regarding wireless RF emissions from cell towers in the municipality, failed to garner the needed majority votes when the Toronto Board of Health voted on the matter last week, according to the Canadians 4 Safe Technology (C4ST), a not-for-profit volunteer organization focus on bringing awareness about the dangers of radiation from technology. . . .
"It took conviction for the board members to keep this visionary policy in place," Frank Clegg, CEO of C4ST, said in a statement today. "When the largest city in Canada thinks that Health Canada is not doing enough to protect Canadians, that is significant." . . .
2011 study directly links 4,924 cancer deaths to cellular antennas radiation.
The electromagnetic radiation emitted by transmitting cell phone antennas is linked to the occurrence of some types of cancer, according to a study by Brazilian researchers.

" . . . These are the only studies known of that specifically consider the effects of masts on people. All five of these studies show clear and significant ill-health effects.
"There are no known studies relating to health effects of masts that do not show such ill-health effects. In this respect, any statement by industry or official sources that claims (or suggests) that:
(a) There is no evidence of ill-health effects from masts; or
(b) The overwhelming evidence is that masts do not cause ill-health effects;
is completely and blatantly untrue.

"The electromagnetic radiation in Parksville and Qualicum Beach simply became too much for Benita Schluschen to bear.
"She and husband Marcus had done what they could to their Chartwell home to shield her electro hypersensitivity.
"They have all non-digital devices, including clocks. They not only don't have cell phones but they got rid of their cordless phone, as well.
"They have an old-fashioned non-flatscreen TV.
"Even so, we sit quite a distance away," says Benita.
"They have a computer but they shield it and only Marcus uses it, doing all their online research on EHS and then reporting his findings to Benita.
"But they couldn't control the outside radiation from cell phones, cell towers and WiFi.
"It seemed like all our neighbours had WiFi," says Marcus. And all the stores, as well.
"It's a quick shop for me in the store," says Benita.
"Grocery stores are so full of microwave radiation that it's cooking the food, says Marcus. "It is reduced in quality considerably."
"The emissions from a cell tower across from the Parksville Dairy Queen are "absolutely massive," he says. . . .

Minister says government will listen to local concerns
"The government minister who has the final decision on whether three controversial new cell towers will be built along Highway 1 in West Vancouver says their approval is not a fait accompli.
"We do our own independent assessment on each tower, their proximity to things, whether or not there's a public safety aspect," said Industry Minister James Moore.
"We do listen. Cell towers are not automatically approved. We can put in mitigation. We can design setbacks.
"There are different things we've done in the past. There's also an obligation on the companies to listen to the public." . . .

Our new video shows the results of a NANOS survey that highlight how Canadians perceive the radiation that comes from everyday wireless devices - and its potentially harmful health effects. Canadians are seriously concerned about wireless radiation, and C4ST is working hard to make sure Canadian technology is safe technology.
The purpose of this video is to give a short intro to C4ST, the issue and what needs to be done to change it. We intend to engage and start conversation with the public and politicians alike.
Please share this with your contacts, politicians, and press in your local communities. It can also be found on the front page of the main website www.c4st.org.
Thank you for sharing this important information.

Citizens For Safe Technology
"Wi-Fi: Is It Safe?"
Citizens for Safe Technology is a not-for-profit educational society made up of parents, grandparents, teachers, business professionals, scientists, politicians and lawyers concerned about the exponential increase in public exposure to harmful wireless technologies.
We believe a profound urgency exists to protect the unsuspecting public, especially children, youth and pregnant mothers from unsafe wireless technologies.
