Impacts of Wireless Technology on Health: A symposium for Ontario’s medical community
May 31 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm
Description: There is significant evidence that a range of adverse health effects can result from increased numbers of interconnected wireless devices and infrastructures which emit nonionizing microwave or radiofrequency radiation (MW/RFR). Such effects can include: impairment of reproduction, amplification of effects of other toxic agents, and contribution to chronic disease. Additionally, at exposure levels of MW/RFR commonly tolerated by the general population, some patients experience development of cancer, as well as acute and chronic symptoms including fatigue, tinnitus, headaches, as well as neurological and cardiac dysfunction.
Goal: To explore how the Ontario medical community can learn more about the human health impacts of nonionizing microwave or radiofrequency radiation, how they can detect and manage illness, and how to incorporate mitigating, public health-driven protective measures.
Objectives: For clinicians to hear directly from clinicians, medical researchers, and patient advocates about: 1. Demographics, toxicology, epidemiology and pathophysiology of wireless technology on health 2. Current states of best practices for management and treatment 3. Up-to-date research and 4. Understanding of the lived experiences of patients.
