Grandi notizie dal Canada

Un comitato tecnico sulla Salute della Camera Parlamentare , ha pubblicato un suo report su: Salute ed il protocollo canadese sui limiti massimi (vedi ICNIRP).

Le raccomandazioni sono decisamente molto significative sul grado di consapevolezza che la commissione ha raggiunto.

Chiede al Governo Canadese di:

- di rivedere il sistema di registrazione dei casi di cancro per indicare la presenza di radiofrequenze nei dispositivi  usati dal malato
- di inserire nel sistema statistico sulla salute la elettrosensibilità
- di finanziare progetti di studio sulla diagnosi, trattamento della elettrosensibilità e valutare le sue relazioni con  gli ambienti di lavoro
- insieme alle associazioni mediche, e WHO di rivedere le  linee guida sulla diagnosi e trattamento della elettrosensibilità,  aggiornate alle più recenti novità scientifiche
- di creare situazioni congrue di ospitalità alle persone affette da elettrosensibilità , anche in accordo con i Diritti umanitari canadesi
- che la revisione dei limiti di esposizione avvenga in un modo aperto e trasparente peer la  opinione pubblica e che consideri la letteratura scientifica indipendente
- di creare un sistema di reporting per danni da campi elettromagnetici
- che venga individuato una commissione esterna, riconosciuta, che valuti se gli interventi presi ad es. in Francia ed Israele di protezione da radiofrequenze per la popolazione sensibile, come gli anziani, gli ammalati,  i ragazzi e bambini in ambienti scolastici dove è presente il wifi, possano essere adottati anche in Canada
- che venga avviato un programma di sensibilizzazione della popolazione sullo uso di sistemi wireless, dai telefoni al wifi a scuola o a casa, finalizzati a ridurne l'impatto negativo sulla salute
- che vengano avviati progetti finalizzati di ricerca sulla relazione tra campi elettromagnetici artificiali e l'uomo
- di introdurre etichette ed informazioni di sicurezza,  in particolare a ragazzi sotto i 14 anni, su un uso che eviti danni alla salute

HESA, the Standing Committee on Health, published their 13th report and this one is about Health Canada's Safety Code 6.  Link to this report is provided below as is the pdf at the end of this email.



The 12 recommendations are provided here for your convenience.  Please note that these are excellent recommendations, but they remain "recommendations" and previous recommendations from HESA to Health Canada have been ignored.  This is election year and the recommendations may be taken more seriously by the government and the opposition.

Recommendation 1
That the Government of Canada, in collaboration with the health
departments of the provinces and territories, examine existing
cancer data collection methods to improve the collection of
information relating to wireless device use and cancer.
 
Recommendation 2
That Statistics Canada consider incl uding questions related to
electromagnetic hypersensitivity in the Canadian Community Health
Survey. 
 
Recommendation 3
That the Government of Canada, through the Canadian Institutes of
Health Research, consider funding research into electromagnetic
hypersensitivity testing, diagnosis and treatment, and its possible
impacts on health in the workplace. 
 
Recommendation 4
That the Canadian Medical Association, the Royal College of
Physicians and Surgeons, the College of Family Physicians of
Canada and the World Health Organization consider updating their
guidelines and continuing education materials regarding the
diagnosis and treatment of electromagnetic hypersensitivity to
ensure they are based on the latest scientific evidence and reflect
the symptoms of affected Canadians. 
 
Recommendation 5
That the Government of Canada continue to provid e reasonable
accommodations for environmental sensitivities, including
electromagnetic hypersensitivity, as required under the Canadian
Human Rights Act. 
 
Recommendation 6
That Health Canada ensure the openness and transparency of its
processes for the review of Safety Code 6, so that all Canadians have
an opportunity to be informed about the evidence considered or
excluded in such reviews, that outside experts are provided full
information when doing independent reviews, and that the scientific
rationale for any change is clearly communicated.  
 
Recommendation 7
That the Government of Canada establish a system for Canadians to
report potential adverse reactions to radiofrequency fields. 
 
Recommendation 8
That an independent scientific body recognized by Health Canada
examine whether measures taken and guidelines provided in other
countries, su ch as France and Israel, to limit the exposure of
vulnerable populations, including infants, and young children in the
school environment, to radiofrequencies should be adopted in
Canada. 
 
Recommendation 9
That the Government of Canada develop an awareness campaign
relating to the safe use of wireless technologies, such as cell phones
and Wi-Fi, in key environments such as the school and home to
ensure that Canadian families and children are reducing risks related
to radiofrequency exposure. 
 
Recommendation 10
That Health Canada conduct a comprehensive review of all existing
literature relating to radiofrequency fields and carcinogenicity based
on international best practices.  
 
Recommendation 11
That the Government of Canada, through the Canadian Institutes of
Health Research, consider funding research into the link between
radiofrequenc y fields and potential health effects such as cancer,
genetic damage, infertility, impairment to development and
behaviour, harmful effects to eyes and on the brain, cardiovascular,
biological and biochemical effects. 
 
Recommendation 12
That the Government of Canada and manufacturers consider policy
measures regarding the marketing of radiation emitting devices to
children under the age of 14, in order to ensure they are aware of the
health risks and how they can be avoided.
