Cell Phones: Our Kids At Risk?


Note: After an EMF article written in the Wire Report, the reporter received some criticism. Here is the reporter's assessment of the situation and then there is a reply to him.

The Wire Report

As a journalist with daily deadlines I hope you can appreciate that I always don't have the time to give more complex stories, like this one, the full research they sometimes deserve. At the end of the day, I need to have something published because we are a small publication and have subscribers who count on daily content.

The impetus for this particular story was the decision by the Bloc Québécois to look into forming a sub-committee to explore the health risks associated with RF signals. That is what I tried to focus on. As I'm sure you know, SEMO and the Bloc have counted on the Bioinitiative Report to support their claims that RF signals are indeed harmful.

When I spoke with Dr. Daniel Krewski, possibly the top researcher in Canada on the potential cancer risks associated with cell phones, he told me that he had never heard of the report. If you were in my shoes, this would surely raise a few questions and probably a little skepticism.

So I wrote my story to the best of my abilities with the information I had at the time.

What I found, at least, was that most authoritative research had not found any concrete links between cell phone use and cancer. If you read the article again, however, I'm sure you'll notice that I also said that research on the long-term effects of cell phone use and the health risks associated with children has been rather slim and inconclusive to date. I don't think I gave the telecom industry a free ride, but you may disagree.

If you want to send some more research my way it would be appreciated. Depending on how this sub-committee goes I'm sure there could be some good opportunities for a follow-up.



By the way, we are actually independent.The Wire Report is owned by The Hill Times Publishing, a respected independent publisher that also publishes The Hill Times newspaper and Embassy.

I have no ties to the telecom or broadcasting industries, apart from the fact that I cover them on a daily basis.


Dear Mr. -------------,

I must admit with embarassment that I copied you by accident with me initial email. I thank you very much for the courtesy you extended by explaining your situation. I appreciate it greatly. If I could make one suggestion in response to your statement that you must write something because your readers expect content, it would be that it might be preferable to write nothing than to write something that is misleading. I hope to give you further information that, I also hope, you might provide to your readers as a follow-up.

Please allow me first to present some additional research for you to consider, as requested. Attached is a petition I submitted to the Auditor General of Canada. In it you will find many studies which show that damage is caused by RF radiation as well as evidence to support my assertion that Dr. Krewski and members of Health Canada are associated with the telecommunication industry. If you wish to see the responses,which in no way question my assertions but, to the contrary confirm them, just google my petition (#255 and #255b). Should you have difficulty finding them I would be happy to send them to you.

There are no doubt many who would dispute your consideration of Dr. Krewski as one of Canada's top, if not the top, researcher into cellphones. He has been involved with the Interphone Study, the results of which are dubious due to its funding by the industry. Other countries (there were 13 involved in the endeavour) have reached conclusions that differ widely, and the report has been delayed due to the pressure being brought to bear by the industry.

I must admit amazement with Dr. Krewski's statement that he has never heard of the BioInitiative Report. This is a compilation of 2000 peer-reviewed studies done by independent, credible scientists from around the world over a number of years. Many have considered it to be a vital addition to the discussion of RF exposure. What makes his statement even more confusing is that the BioInitiative Group has corresponded with Dr. Krewski, urging him and his colleagues to produce their research because people are being harmed during the delay of several years. Pls. see the link: http://www.scribd.com/doc/8966125/Principal-Investigators-of-Interphone-Study-Groups . Also there are numerous articles in various newspapers and journals citing both the Interphone Group (Dr. Krewski) and the BioInitiative Group. One example: http://groups.google.com/group/mobilfunk_newsletter/browse_thread/thread/931c9426a56862ed. Perhaps Dr. Krewski's memory has been affected by his cellphone usage! (joke?) Or perhaps it's just one more example of Dr. Krewski not being entirely forthcoming.

If my conclusion that yours was an industry newsletter is incorrect, please forgive me. The title "The Wired Report" and the information in the article may have mislead me. We who are fighting to get the standards for exposure to RF in Canada to the same level as most of the major countries of the world have become cynical due to lack of media and government support which is resulting in RF becoming the 21st century cigarette.

And last, but not least, there are many across Canada who are most grateful to the Bloc Quebecois for taking this stance and for bringing this important issue to Parliament's attention. Hopefully others will lend their support so that real change can be brought to Health Canada.

Should you wish additional information or substantiation of any of my comments, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Best regards,
Sharon Noble

Hi Janet

It is not just garage doors that radiofrequencies are interfering with.

The attached document gives you a good idea of what they are doing to people.

If you want further information on this problem, please do not hesitate to contact me.
