Has anyone noticed that most elementary, middle and high schools are overwhelmed with numbers of separate WIFI networks? And, the children who attend the schools are exposed to them all during every school day.
We believe that this is a misguided choice that is damaging the health and well-being of at least some of the children. There is no way parents can choose to opt out. Parents can, and should in our opinion, opt out of exposing their children to WiFi, DECT cordless phones which transmit 24-7, Xboxes, PlayStations, Wii, etc, when they are at home.
Dr Martha Herbert, Asst. Professor, Pediatric Neurology Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA. [8th February 2013], is a pediatric neurologist and neuroscientist on the faculty of Harvard Medical School and on staff at the Massachusetts General Hospital. Board Certified in Neurology with Special Competency in Child Neurology, with Certification in Neurodevelopmental Disorders. Dr. Herbert has collected and an extensive history of research and clinical practice in neurodevelopmental disorders, particularly autism spectrum disorders. She recently reviewed literature pertinent to a potential link between Autism Spectrum Disorders and Radio Frequency Radiation, producing a 60 page single spaced paper with over 550 citations (1.5 MB). That is one chapter from the latest BioInitiative Report written by leading EMF/RF bio-effects researchers from around the world. The BioInitiative website has the latest update assessing 1800 new scientific studies that have been published since 2007, many showing reasons for concern.
There are thousands of papers that have accumulated over decades that document adverse health and neurological impacts of EMF/RFR 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.
“I urge everyone to step back from WiFi and instead opt for wired technologies… It will be easier to make a healthier decision now than to undo a misguided decision later.” says Dr. Martha Herbert in her open letter (20130208-herbert-letter-wifi-classroom–Full_Version).
Back in 2005, a number of German doctors put forward their observations of adverse health effects from radio-frequency fields to the Prime Minister of Bavaria, Dr. Edmund Stoiber. The health effects include headaches, tiredness, inability to concentrate and dizziness, and showed an alarming trend. The following graph is derived from their data.
Group 1 had no symptoms of ill health (visited doctors for contraceptives or general check up, etc).
Groups 2 & 3 reported headaches, restlessness, dazed state, irritability, poor concentration, learning difficulties, memory problems, fatigue, depressive mood and sleep disturbances.
Groups 4,5,6,& 7 reported a wide variety of other other physical symptoms.
In addition, fast rise in diagnosed autistic spectrum disorders over the last 20 years closely matches the rise in children’s RF exposure. There are many factors contributing to the rise in autistic spectrum disorders (which certainly includes better diagnosis) but even when the known ones are factored out a fast rise is still seen which is due to “unknown causes”. This rise is similar to the increase in children’s exposure to DECT cordless phones, WiFi in the home, various PlayStation like games consoles (including Wii), parents’ and now their own use of mobile phones.
