WIFI – Wireless internet access has become more prevalent in schools, colleges, work and in the homes of many people. These 2.5 – 5 ghz microwave emissions are pulsed transmissions and pulsed emissions are more biologically damaging than continuous waves. If possible used wired networks but if not only turn on when required and especially Turn it OFF at Night!
Worldwide Precautionary Action
Around the world, countries are taking strong action to reduce wireless radiation on children.
Some example of the policies are listed below and countries like Switzerland, Italy, France, Austria, Luxembourg, Bulgaria, Poland, Hungary, Israel, Russia and China have set RF exposure limits 100 to 10,000 times less than the USA. They recognize that there can be non-thermal biological effects from wifi radiation.
2015 Law passed: WiFi banned from nursery schools, Wifi must be be turned off in elementary schools when not in use, Cellphone advertisements must recommend headsets to reduce exposure to brain.
The Parliament of Navarra voted to urge removal of WIFI in schools and to apply the precautionary principle in relation to exposure limits to electromagnetic fields whose boundaries have become “obsolete” wireless radiation.
The Israeli Ministry of Health published Environmental Health in Israel 2014 which states that “Precautions should be strictly enforced with regard to children, who are more sensitive to developing cancer.” and that “wireless communication networks in schools be reduced.”

Swedish researcher Olle Johansson, PhD (Karolinska Institute) said: “most worrisome to me are the constant and unavoidable EMF exposures (from cell and DECT phones, power lines, new wireless technologies like WIMAX and WIFI,etc.) everywhere in our daily life that may affect the overall health of this and coming generations. I worry especially about the impacts on the immune system, our only real line of defense against disease.”
To overcome this internet access should used wired systems.
