Thought I would share a few tidbits from today’s news that made me go “hmmm”.
1. World Health Organization has changed its wording about cell phone usage. Until recently, the WHO stated that studies did not show there were adverse health effects from mobile phone use. That was until Tuesday in Lyons, France when 31 scientists from 14 countries met at the IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer) said the available scientific research suggests that mobile phone use may be “possibly carcinogenic”. Perhaps it is time to consider changing our cell phone habits. Article from the National Post. I wonder what Health Canada will say about this issue.
2. Check out this article from the Guardian UK. It begins with “A certain powerful North American country has been brazenly meddling in Europe’s affairs, bullying and twisting arms to advance a corporate agenda on the most pressing environmental issue of our time. A phalanx of its lobbyists has descended on European capitals to covertly scheme with oil companies and menace EU parliamentarians who would dare address climate change.” Which country is this article about? It is Canada.
