I am writing in response to Cecile Davidson’s letter (The NEWS, April 7). She asks readers to Google the Bioinitiative 2012 Report, to support her argument regarding the dangers of EMR. Unfortunately for her argument, in addition to the report and its conclusions, I also found numerous websites dismissing the report’s findings. Apparently, there was a lot of ‘cherry picking’ of questionable studies, by those of questionable qualifications.
Accordingly, the Google search recommended above has yet to provide any valid evidence to counter the conclusions of Health Canada and other international, science-based organizations that EMR from Wi-Fi, cellular systems or power lines does not pose a risk. And yes, the World Health Organization did class EMR as a possible carcinogenic, but so is drinking coffee and working shift work.
So, RDN, thank you for approving the cell tower application in my neighbourhood. I’m greatly looking forward to the stronger, more dependable signal.
