Children in particular may be vulnerable Josh Harkinson, Mother Jones, May 11, 2015 Are government officials doing enough to protect us from the potential long-term health effects of wearable devices and cell phones? Maybe not. A letter released today, signed by more than 190 scientists from 38 countries, calls on the United Nations, the World Health Organization (WHO), and national governments to develop stricter controls on these and other products that create electromagnetic fields (EMF). “Based on peer-reviewed, published research, we have serious concerns regarding the ubiquitous and increasing exposure to EMF generated by electric and wireless devices,” reads the letter, whose [&hellip

  Most parents would be concerned if their children had significant exposure to lead, chloroform, gasoline fumes, or the pesticide DDT.  The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IRIC), part of the United Nations’ World Health Organization (WHO), classifies these and more than 250 other agents as Class 2B Carcinogens – possibly carcinogenic to humans.  Another entry on that same list is radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF/EMF).  The main sources of RF/EMF are radios, televisions, microwave ovens, cell phones, and Wi-Fi devices. http://www.forbes.com/sites/robertszczerba/2015/01/13/study-suggests-wi-fi-exposure-more-dangerous-to-kids-than-previously-thought/#comment_reply A few days after the article was published, significant changes were made.

  WiFi in Schools Around the world an increasing number of governments and authorities have banned or warned against the use of WiFi in schools.  Many experts, scientists and doctors are warning schools to take a precautionary approach.The Australian Radiation Protection Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) is the government agency which sets the standard limits for human exposure to radiation.   ARPANSA’s recent fact sheet 14 “How to reduce exposure from mobile phones and other wireless devices” (Updated June 2013) states “the technology is very new and it’s impossible to be completely sure there isn’t some risk.  This is particularly true for children where there is little research evidence.” http://www.wifi-in-schools-australia.org

Schools in Illinois and around the country are using wireless Internet connections – and receiving billions in federal aid to expand Wi-Fi use – despite growing concern that exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) transmissions may be harmful to students and teachers. September 22, 2014 WILMETTE, Ill. – Warnings about the potential hazards of radiation from Wi-Fi in school classrooms are on the rise. But those who are concerned about the health effects of Radiofrequency Radiation – RFR, as it’s known – are finding it can be hard to make headway. Sheri Calarco, a parent in Wilmette, says her youngest son [&hellip

Foreign researchers are extremely excited for a biology project from five 9th grade girls. Researchers from England, Holland and Sweden have shown great interest in the five girls’ biology experiments. Take 400 Cress seeds and place them into 12 trays. Then place six trays in two rooms at the same temperature. Give them the same amount of water and sun over 12 days, and remember to expose half of them to mobile [Wi-Fi] radiation. It is a recipe for a biology test so brilliant that it has attracted international attention among acknowledged biologists and radiation experts. Behind the experiment are five [&hellip
