Wi-Fi in Schools: Should We Apply the Precautionary Principle?

Wi-Fi fears swell

The Barrie Examiner

They are worried that electromagnetic radiation from wireless transmitters are causing a lengthy list of problems they say have been absent over the summer ...

Response to the Ottawa Citizen submitted today as letter to the editor in response to the article linked here- http://www.ottawacitizen.com/technology/Parental+disconnect/3425539/story.html#comments

Regarding your editorial about the "wild hunch" parents near Barrie are having about the WiFi system affecting their children's` health, I am disappointed by your yellow journalism and absence of facts.

Having not made a single phone call to inquire about the public health disaster unfolding in Simcoe County you have decided we are somehow backward and want to "turn back the clock".

Had you first investigated you would have learned of an outbreak of tachycardia which is an unexplained rapid heart beat, up to 250 beats per minute in an unusual number of children. You would have learned of a new study showing that this condition is exacerbated by exposure to microwaves. You would have learned that the WiFi system in Simcoe schools is not the standard household system but one of industrial strength that beams microwaves into junior kindergarten classes all day long, where there are in fact zero computers present.

I should think that before attempting to discredit us, you would have learned that the U.S. government issued a study through the National Institutes of Health last fall suggesting that microwaves from such "carrier frequencies" may cause both leukemia and cancer "especially in children".

And if you had paid attention to Canada`s Parliament, which I understand is a short distance from your office, you would have known that on April 27 and 29th of this year the Standing Committee on Health heard two days of testimony on microwaves and health, which included warnings from three European scientists of cancer, DNA damage and infertility, especially in children.

We appreciate your suggestion that public health officials "monitor the situation". Perhaps you will offer your children to monitor because we would like to withdraw our children from this experiment.
