“Students were bleeding from the ears and nose and no incident reports were allowed by the school,” states the teacher who required cardiac medical intervention. Her doctor explained that those with mercury fillings suffer more effects from WiFi. She asks officials to listen to her students own reports of illness since the WiFi was turned on. Professor Olle Johansson, Karolinksa Institute, Stockholm Sweden, has stated that wireless radiation exposure studies have indicated “irreversible sterility within five generations.”
Over 1 Million Members of Teachers Unions in Germany, UK, USA and Canada Who Have Done Their Research Do Not Support WiFi in Schools
EdTech companies keep pushing for MORE wireless in classrooms, saying RF/EMF is safe when official agencies lack long-term data of health impact from exposure on children. All these unions are informed about the health risks of WiFi and cellphones and are fighting to protect the health of their adult members in the workplace. Why would school boards choose to increase the exposure to school children?
EMF Real Estate Survey Results: “Neighborhood Cell Towers & Antennas— They Do Impact a Property’s Desirability!”
95% said they would opt to buy or rent a property that had zero antennas on the building over a comparable property that had several antennas on the building. “I own several properties in Santa Fe, NM and believe me, I have taken care not to buy near cell towers. Most of these are rental properties and I think I would have a harder time renting those units… were a cell tower or antenna nearby. Though I have not noticed any negative health effects myself, I know many people are affected. And in addition, these antennas and towers are often extremely ugly–despite the attempt in our town of hiding them as chimneys or fake trees.” 79% said under no circumstances would they ever purchase or rent a property within a few blocks of a cell tower or antennas. 88% said that under no circumstances would they ever purchase or rent a property with a cell tower or group of antennas on top of, or attached to, the apartment building.
Researchers have found a way to reveal Wi-Fi passwords by hacking mobile phone controlled LED “smart” lights. The discovery highlights the inherent danger in having countless home appliances connected to the Internet – as experts predict as many as 50 such devices in the average home by 2022 . Other lights such as the Phillips Hue were successfully hacked last year as well.
"Ethan was diagnosed with 2 brain tumors three months after he was given a wi-fi-connected iPod. His parents later discovered he had been falling asleep with it under his pillow. Even though it was on standby, it was still emitting bursts of radiation as it tried to connect to the router, Mr Wyman said. Doctors who saw Ethan said the tumors appeared to be about four months old, Mr Wyman said. He died, aged 10, less than a year after diagnosis last August."
34 Papers finding adverse biological effects or damage to health from Wi-Fi signals, Wi-Fi-enabled devices or Wi-Fi frequencies (2.4 or 5 GHz)
Papers listed are only those where exposures were 16V/m or below. Someone using a Wi-Fi-enabled tablet computer can be exposed to electromagnetic fields up to 16V/m
On what basis did the opposition develop their anti-wi-fi argument? “On certain scientific research as well as policy developments,” replies Patrick Hermann. “To be brief, at the scientific level, apparently, waves from wi-fi are of the micro-wave type. And even if their intensity is relatively low, their impact is significant. Waves penetrate several centimeters into the human body.” He adds that the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of WHO has classified electromagnetic radiofrequency fields as possibly carcinogenic for humans, on the basis of an increased risk of glioma, a type of malignant brain cancer, associated with use of mobile phones.
The principal author of the 2011 World Health Organization IARC Monograph on the carcinogenicity of radiofrequency radiation explains the 2B classification of RFR as applicable to all form of RFR exposures, including Smart Meters and Wi-Fi: "So the classification 2B, possibly carcinogenic, holds for all types of radiation within the radiofrequency part of the electromagnetic spectrum, including the radiation emitted by base-station antennas, radio/TV towers, radar, Wi-Fi, smart meters, etc.
[Former Test Pilot and Founder of AirSafe.com] Reportedly, there have been separate incidents of two pilots fainting while in flight, apparently on aircraft with wi-fi installations. This could be a huge red flag. That sort of event in the air, with individual pilots being incapacitated, isn't consistently reported in the US because there is no clear legal or regulatory requirement to do so. [Cardiologist Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D., F.A.C.C.] We know that the heart is sensitive to, and can be adversely affected by, the same frequency used for WiFi (2.4 GHz) at levels a fraction of federal guidelines (less than 1%). I would like to see tests on pilots for potential cardiac and cognitive effects.. Not only does low-level RF radiation interfere with the proper functioning of the human body, avionics systems are not immune, either. For example, an aircraft wireless terminal was found to interfere with a ground base station even from a distance of 286 km (Moraitis 2010). In a worst case scenario, Honeywell display units on a Boeing 737NG went blank during EMI certification testing of Wi-Fi systems (Boeing 2011). Since aircrafts are metal enclosures, any wireless transmitter such as Wi-Fi-enabled laptops and Smart phones as well as Wi-Fi access points operating on the inside will cause an exponential increase in RF radiation exposure.

The National Library of France has renounced a wireless network. In France, the National Assembly has voted a text asking that wi-fi be used as little as possible in schools”, says the Director of the Blaise-Cendrars High School.
