Canadian Documentary Discovers Health Concerns Related to Wi-Fi in Schools

By Building Biology News

In our work we have found that one of the most recent rapidly growing areas of concern is the proliferation of wi-fi in schools. It is a complicated area as the Rudd government is understandably stating that all Australian children must have access to a computer at school. The easiest and most cost effective way of doing this is through wireless connectivity in the form of wi-fi. This more convenient and cost effective form of wireless internet connectivity is however already being linked to adverse health effects in children. Some of whom can no longer attend school as they have now become electrically sensitive. A condition that can become very debilitating and life limiting.

Is Mould / Mold In Your Home Making You Sick?

By Building Biology News

When conducting building inspections the most underestimated environmental health hazard is mould. We cannot over stress the importance of ensuring that the building in which you work or live does not have one or more of the following issues:

Little or no ventilation (many openable windows)

Limited natural sunlight (dark indoor environment that requires artificial lighting during the day)

Water ingress issues due to sloping land, leaking roof / water pipes and insufficient water proofing
Many non breathable surfaces due to plastic paints and other synthetic finishes

WiFi in Schools and EMR Exposure For Kids

By Building Biology News

WiFi in schools and concern for children being persistently exposed to pulsed microwave high frequency electromagnetic radiation

Children being exposed to wireless technology in schools as well as at home, on such a relentlessly ongoing basis is finally being acknowledged by many organisations and through quite literally thousands of studies conducted worldwide. Below are just some references relating to the fact that current obsolete exposure standards that relate to old technology and heating effects on the body only, are simply not sufficient to protect people and in particular children from long term biological effects.

Autism and Air Pollution: The Link Grows Stronger

By Building Biology News

Ecolibria have been one of the very few companies that place a large emphasis on the testing of ultrafine dust particulates. The ultrafine particles are extremely small and capable of affecting the deepest parts of the lungs. When these ultrafines carry toxic pollutants like vehicle emissions or industry pollutants, the adverse health effects can be far worse.
