Science & Wireless 2011 "IARC Explained" online presentation with Dr Robert Bann from IARC
The Australian Science & Wireless 2011 event provided a unique opportunity for scientists, regulators, industry specialists and members of the community to meet and exchange views on Radiofrequency (including mobile phones) and health in a public forum.
SW2011 titled "IARC Explained", provided an opportunity to discuss the implications of a recent decision by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) to classify Radiofrequency (RF) Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) as "possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B)".
Contributors include Professor Malcolm Sim, from the Monash University Department of Epidemiology & Preventive Medicine and member of the IARC panel, Dr Carl-Magnus Larsson and Lindsay Martin of the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) and Leigh Dayton, science writer for the national newspaper The Australian, to provide an epidemiologist’s, a regulator’s, and a science communicator’s point of view. A panel session was facilitated by leading international risk perception analyst Professor Ray Kemp.
