Should Lisbon Use Wi Fi in Schools? ---- by Joe Hill

At last Tuesdays Town Council Meeting the Lisbon School Department asked the Council to release money so they could increase the capacity of the Wi Fi in one of Lisbon Schools. 

I think Lisbon Parents should take a long and hard look at the overwhelming evidence that has emerged against subjecting children to Wi Fi - RF fields. Many professionals in this field believe placing children's developing bodies in Wi Fi electromagnetic fields is tantamount to Child Abuse. 

The following sources may give you a better understanding of what can happen to your children if they are sensitive to these fields.

Lets err on the side of safety and only use hardwired computer connections in our schools.


Warnings about Wireless Radiation

A number of organizations, including the Council of Europe, the European Environment Agency, UK Trades Union Congress, the International Commission for Electromagnetic Safety, and the Russian Commission for Electromagnetic Safety, have also given strong warnings about all technology that emits radiation similar to that of WiFi.

The World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Toxicology Program have also studied the effects of non-thermal radiation on human health. Their results are that, among other things, radiation can significantly increase the risk of serious diseases. They have classified RF as a possible carcinogen, the same as lead and DDT.

Children’s Vulnerability to WiFi Radiation

Children are especially vulnerable to WiFi radiation because their nervous systems and brains are still developing. Also their skulls are thinner and smaller, so the radiation penetrates more deeply into their brains.

If you have WiFi, and your children also use laptops and play wireless games, they are living in a virtual sea of radiation, exposing them to a number of WiFi health risks.

Why Is WiFi Bad?    (Especially for children)

1. Children's brains are way smaller, so it affects us way more. And we have more water in children's brains so electromagnetic radiation is conducted faster and stronger.

2. Cell phones have up to 2.4 ghz frequency, but wireless can have up to 6 ghz frequency. But scientists say it is not the frequency that is so important, but the second carrier wave (the information carrying radio wave - ICRW) and the fact that it is pulsed, that is the main health problem. All these countries have banned wifi in schools, why can't we?

3. Children absorb more radiation than adults, so the risk for kids is much higher than for adults.

4. Radiation disturbs our learning and damages our brain function.

5. People getting sick from WiFi radiation today have exactly the same things wrong with their body as the radar operators during World War 2 - when they were using the same microwave radiation to find out where the enemy planes were.
