Quote:
OTTAWA - Green Party leader Elizabeth May today called on Health Minister Tony Clement to issue an immediate warning on the potential danger posed by radiation from cell phones and wireless networks in Canada.

Germany recently warned its citizens to avoid wireless technology whenever possible and the EU’s European Environment Agency (EEA) followed suit with a call for immediate reduction in exposure to radiation from phones and wireless networks. The EEA suggested that a delay could precipitate a health crisis similar to those caused by asbestos exposure and smoking.

"There is growing scientific evidence that exposure to electromagnetic radiation (EMR) from cell phones and wireless networks can cause significant harm to people, especially children,” said Ms. May. “Until all the facts are in, it is foolish to turn a blind eye to the potential health effects of EMR. The Green Party urges the federal government to apply the precautionary principle and warn citizens of these risks now.”

That's pretty ridiculous... but I expect nothing less from Lizzie May. What's next? A ban on electricity because it emits an electromagntic field?

If we lived in caves we'd have to use cell phones. I wonder how Osama communicates while living in caves in the mountains of Afganistan?

Afghanistan is very much like the world was 800 years ago... but with everyone on a cell phone.

I have been studying this phenomenon for over a year, but instead of banning cell phones, there are actually products out there to reduce the risk. Please see www.emfhealthsolutions.com for more information. I am not selling anything, but the product is available at www.bioprotechnology.com for those of you willing to look into it. (And no I do not support Elisabeth May)

I don't think we should dismiss the dangers either. Better to be cautious. I don't support a ban. But the jury is still out on this one. I know that I always turn on the baby monitor when it isn't in use and I don't place it near the baby.

Considering all the electrical activity in the human brain, thinking hard must cause cancer.

Just to point out as well, this all started from one of th most boneheaded studies of all time. Someone found out that people who live very close to power lines had much higher rates of cancer. From this they concluded that power lines must cause cancer.
It turned out that people living near powerlines were poorer, drank more, smoked more and did more drugs. (think about it, if you have the money, would you buy a house next to a powerline ?)
Once you compared the poor people under a power line to poor people elsewhere, powerlinesit didn't really make a difference.

That just goes to show once again that correlation does not show causation.

There's a big difference between electrical activity and microwaves. Stick your head in your microwave oven and see how long you last. Cell phones emit MICROWAVES - THAT is the problem.

As far as I know, your brain doesn't produce microwaves :P
