The Health Committee of the Canadian House of Commons released its report on the safety of radiofrequency radiation following public hearings.

The report, published in December, recommended that:

  • the Government fund long-term studies on the health effects of radiofrequency radiation
  • the scientific literature be assessed for evidence of risk from this radiation, considering electromagnetic sensitivity and public policies in other countries;
  • a comprehensive risk awareness program for exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation which would include information about the safe use of wireless technologies;
  • Health Canada and Industry Canada offer to provide information on exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation
  • Health Canada has a process in place to deal with reports of harm from exposure to RF-devices.
