Wi-Fi routers, wireless laptops and tablet computers (iPads) in schools constantly emit pulsed microwave radiation. Far from being safe, we now know that this type radiation can cause brain cancer, DNA damage and infertility.
With the landmark $25 million NTP (National Institute of Health) study that recently released its preliminary results, the American Cancer Society has stated that we have entered a “paradigm shift in our understanding of radiation and cancer risk.” We are also seeing medical organizations, such as the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), issue guidelines for reduced wireless exposure for children.
Schools and public libraries around the world are starting to power-down wireless systems and are returning to wired technology because of an increase in headaches, nosebleeds, concentration problems, heart arrhythmia and ADD/ADHD among children and adults. In February 2017, Maryland became the first state in the United States to recommend the reduction of Wi-Fi in schools. Massachusetts is also considering legislation that would reduce wireless exposure in schools.
The following is a series of short videos that will help you understand the science behind this issue, along with the stories of so many affected children and teachers.
Begin by sending this non-consent form and letter to your child’s school to raise awareness. Then share with other parents articles like this one or the story of this school in Finland that recently installed off-switches for Wi-Fi. Stories of parents successfully getting wired computer access in schools are popping up all around the world. You can lead the way in your community to provide all children with the healthy school environment they need and deserve.
Even some WiFi manufacturers are warning about the radiation exposure to kids. This German TMobile WiFi User’s Guide states on Page 21: “The router should not be placed it into sleeping rooms, rooms for children and for people to stay there because of the integrated antennas of the Speedport. Those antennas emit and receive electromagnetic waves e.g. for the WiFi. The aim is to keep the exposure by radiation as low as possible.”
