76,000 TEACHERS VOTE CELL PHONES TURNED OFF IN CLASSROOMS

The vote was part of a series of motions requesting that radiation from cell phones and WiFi be recognized as a potential workplace hazard for teachers. "There is cause for concern for members' health and safety, especially women," said Sandra Wash, a teacher representing Peel District who spoke at the meeting. Two years ago the World Health Organization officially declared wireless radiation from cell phones and WiFi to be a possible Carcinogen. A second vote yesterday afternoon demanded that school Boards stop hiding WiFi transmitters in the ceiling, and label them as part of a hazard control program.
Googling a very simple phrase led me to a list of “smart homes” that had done something rather stupid….Their systems had been made crawl-able by search engines….Opening a garage door could make a house ripe for actual physical intrusion….So if you can manage to get on someone’s Wi-Fi network – which is easy if they have no password on it – you could take control of their home.

“These companies are considering the home network as a fortress,” says Crowley. “In most cases, it’s anything but.”

Credible experts have new concerns over cell phone radiation

FOR NEWS VIDEO: http://www.cbs58.com/news/local-news/New-concerns-over-cell-phone-radiation-205503891.html But attorney Randy explains: "What's interesting about the majority of studies that did find a link between the radiation and the cell phone use is that the cancerous tumor would appear on the same side of the brain where they typically would use their cell phone."

Infants given iPads as toys = dangerous health risks

The manual warns that if a user does not handle the iPad exactly as instructed, the radiation level will exceed governments' exposure limits. Children are targeted for the marketing of such devices, but the safety warning is buried inside an online manual. Without awareness of the warning, parents let children handle the iPads as below. The iPad is often placed on the children's laps, against their reproductive organs, or in their hands which are touching the antennas. Instead of treating the iPads as radiofrequency transmitters and receivers as declared in the user manual, parents and children treat them as toys.

“EMF/RFR from wifi and cell towers can exert a disorganizing effect on the ability to learn and remember, and can also be destabilizing to immune and metabolic function. This will make it harder for some children to learn, particularly those who are already having problems in the first place.”

“Powerful industrial entities have a vested interest in leading the public to believe that EMF/RFR, which we cannot see, taste or touch, is harmless, but this is not true. Please do the right and precautionary thing for our children."

Parents Vote Against Wi-Fi in B.C. Schools

...a majority of delegates to theB.C. Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils (BCCPAC) decided there are enough unanswered questions to pass two resolutions. One calls on B.C. school districts to ensure they have at least one school that doesn’t have Wi-Fi, cordless phones or cell phones as an option for families. The other urges districts to stop installing Wi-Fi altogether.
The Ontario English Catholic Teacher's Association, representing 45,000 teachers, says computers in all new schools should be hardwired instead of setting up wireless networks. It also says Wi-Fi should not be installed in any more classrooms.

In a position paper released today, the union - which represents 45,000 teachers - cites research by the World Health Organization.

Last year the global health agency warned about a possible link between radiation from wireless devices such as cellphones and cancer. Some believe wireless access to the Internet could pose similar risks.

Another school, known for its advanced computer lab, has removed its Wifi, following warnings that the system emits potentially harmful microwave radiation and now hardwires all of its internet connections.

"Schools are in the business of helping children, not hurting them so we shouldn't be taking chances," said Principal Brenda Glashan.

In North America the WiFi base station (and cordless phone base station) transmitters constantly pulse a microwave beacon signal, 10 times per second using 2.4 or 5.8 GHz frequencies. This rapid pulsed frequency is much more biologically harmful to the human body than continuous waves such as used in microwave ovens.
