The 2014 Report of the Canadian Panel of Experts on Safety Code 6 accepts the ICNIRP safety standards that rest solely on avoiding heating but ignores an important literature on voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs) and other calcium-related effects, oxidative stress, nitric oxide and a wide range of other effects that take place at non-thermal levels. Microwave/low frequency electromagnetic fields (EMFs) act via activation of VGCCs to produce biological effects. ICNIRP and other safety standards only consider heating and are contradicted by an extensive literature
