Expert Forum on Wireless Risks:

Cell Phones and Wireless Technologies: Should Safety Guidelines be Strengthened to Protect Adults, Children and Vulnerable Populations – and Should Parents, Teachers & Schools Restrict Technology Overuse Among Children?”

1-450x300WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer classified Radiofrequency Radiation emitted by cell phones and wireless devices as a Group 2B ‘Possible Carcinogen’ in 2011. This upcoming program will review the science showing risk, mechanisms of action, new genetic questions, and whether the IARC warning should be upgraded to ‘Probable Carcinogen’ –or even ‘Carcinogen’. There will be a special focus on risks to children, and the role overuse of wireless technologies may be playing in attention, functional and relational difficulties, as well as on risk to the elderly, where cognitive decline may be misconstrued as dementia, permitting people to progress without help. Experts on different facets of risk will assure a very dynamic forum.
