Are we getting brainwashed about WiFi safety?

Posted: April 22, 2015 in Uncategorized

According to the Environmental Health Trust (EHT), wireless devices expose students and staff to microwave radiation that can impede learning and overall health. Studies have shown that microwave radiation can damage reproductive systems, impact the immune system, alter brain functioning, and may increase cancer risk. Tablets have up to 5 antennae that are constantly emitting short intense bursts of radiation even when not connected to the Internet. Wireless devices in classrooms thus result in multiple sources of wireless radiation exposure.

In Oregon, Rep Alissa Keny-Guyer introduced House Bill 3350, which directs the Department of Education to prepare a statement that would disclose the potential health risks of wireless technology to staff and parents. It also declares an “Emergency,” stating the Act is “necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health and safety.”

Parents are concerned that school districts across the country are quickly moving to install wireless technology systems despite scientists’ recommendations that wireless exposures be reduced to children and pregnant women in light of the adverse health effects linked to wireless radiation.

Worldwide, a dozen countries have taken various precautionary action. Most recently, France banned Wi-Fi in nursery schools and directs elementary schools to keep the WiFi off unless needed. The European Union recommends decreased exposures to children.
