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.
Dr. Martha Herbert – Asst. Professor, Pediatric Neurology Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA has stated that :
“There are thousands of papers that have accumulated over decades that document adverse health and neurological impacts of EMF / EMR which can exert a disorganizing effect on the ability to learn and remember and can also destabilize immune and metabolic functioning. This will make it harder for some children to learn, particularly those who are already having problems in the first place.”

WiFi in schools is a major concern and many governments and schools in Europe and the UK are now showing concern over the use of wireless technology in their schools. Children are more susceptible to the effects of radio frequency radiation and electromagnetic fields and to have a persistent source of pulsed microwave electromagnetic radiation exposing kids in schools over a prolonged period of time is disheartening and sad to see. It is so important to be aware of sources of wireless high frequency EMR in the home too. Electromagnetic Radiation from DECT baby monitors are one of the worst offenders followed by cordless phones, wireless internet, wii and x box wireless gaming devices.
There is a very good summation of the current issues relating to WiFi in schools and specifically in Australian schools available to view from the link below:
