Report by Health Canada 1999. Many interesting observations e.g. that tests on rats, mice do not reveal effects of emf/ mobile phones on Alzheimers as rat & mice brains do not contain amyloids (according to Health Canada), so why are we still determining health effects particularly Alzheimers still on mice and rats?

The Royal Society of CanadaLa Sociéte royale du CanadaPrefatory Note
In July 1998 Health Canada’s Radiation Protection Bureau approached the Royal Society of Canada with a requestto commission an expert panel to address the public concerns over the adequacy of Health Canada’s Safety Code 6with regard to potential health risks associated with radiofrequency field exposure from existing and emergingwireless telecommunication devices. The Society agreed to do so, and the Committee on Expert Panels undertook the task of screening and selecting for panel service the individuals whose names now appear as the authors of thisreport.The report entitled
 A Review of the Potential Health Risks of Radiofrequency Fields from WirelessTelecommunication Devices
represents a consensus of the views of all of the panelists whose names appear on thetitle page. The Committee wishes to thank the panel members and panel chair, the peer reviewers, and the panelstaff for completing this very important report within a short period of time.The Society has a formal and published set of procedures, adopted in October 1996, which sets out how expertpanel processes are conducted, including the process of selecting panelists. Interested persons may obtain a copy of those procedures from the Society. The Committee on Expert Panels will also respond to specific questions aboutits procedures and how they were implemented in any particular case.The Terms of Reference for this expert panel are reproduced elsewhere in this report. As set out in our procedures,the terms are first proposed by the study sponsor, in this case Health Canada, and accepted provisionally by theCommittee. After the panel is appointed, the terms of reference are reviewed jointly by the panelists and thesponsor; the panelists must formally indicate their acceptance of a final terms of reference before their work canproceed, and those are the terms reproduced in this report.The panel first submits a draft of its final report in confidence to the Committee, which arranges for another set of experts to do a peer review of the draft. The peer reviewer comments are sent to the panel, and the Committeetakes responsibility for ensuring that the panelists have addressed satisfactorily the peer reviewer comments.The panel’s report is released to the public without any prior review and comment by the study sponsor. Thisarm’s-length relationship with the study sponsor is one of the most important aspects of the Society’s expert panelprocess.Inquiries about the expert panel process may be addressed to the Chair, Committee on Expert Panels, Royal Societyof Canada.Dr. Geoffrey Flynn, FRSCChair, Committee on Expert Panelson behalf of the Committee members for this Panel:Dr. William Leiss, FRSC, University of CalgaryProfessor Christopher Garrett, FRS, FRSC, University of VictoriaDr. F.
