http://www.ynet.co.il/articles/0,7340,L-3988033,00.html

A Knesset committee for env and health called the government to adopt recommendations for reduction and prevention of the exposure of children to EMR in schools because of health effects.

The committee decided to adopt the conclusions of a team of the two ministries about reduction of exposure. The conclusions were decided by prof Sigal Sadezki, env ministry, education ministry and the power company.

Recommendations: adoption of precautionary principle and balance between the parents and child's choice to use cell phone. Programme for adoption of right usage habits of cell phone - including understanding of the radiation emitted, dangers of use, shorten of call duration, prefaring SMS to conversation, use of headsets, use during driving, use at night and influence of sleepless. The programme will be built by the unit of epidemiology of cancer radiation in Gertner institute and the education ministry. It was also recommended to put in the schools wired phones for the pupils use, to consider establishing areas of cell phone use, like with cigarettes smoking, and teachers will talk only in certain areas.

The transportation ministry will forbid cell phone use, including use of headsets by young drivers, and public transportation In order to prevent the indirect effect danger of loss of concentration that leads to accidents.

To prefer wired computers to Wi-Fi, because the committee agreed that there is a moral, value and legal duty of the education ministry to protect the pupils' health. It was determined to guide the education system to prefer using wired technologies.

Regarding powerlines and transformers, the env ministry's representative claimed there is exceeding of radiation only in small procentage of schools. In building new power installations the power company will take care of minimal exposure according to the best available technology.

The env ministry will prepare a programme to check all the kindergardens and schools for radiation levels. Education ministry will map classes where there are electricity cupboards close to the clasees and give the list to the env ministry to take care of that first.

Problems that will be found will be taken care of immediately by the education ministry including taking the children away, approaching the power company or the school owners, who will bring professionals to solve the problem and then the env ministry needs to consider another measurement.

Of course it depends on what will happen with all this in reality but currently it looks like the most promosing proposal internationally and the awareness level of this decision is quite good!

Please do an effort to try and push the new info coming from Israel that I sent in 3 emails, to decision makers in your country, so that they will be exposed to the changes that happen on the basis of current info and consideration of children's health. Today in an industry's funded newspaper it is written also about this decision with an addition that it is based on scientific studies showing link between phone and brain tumors malignant and benign. You can never know who's opinion you might influence and what botton this news are able to press in your place. This advance in Israel can move to other countries as well - someone needs to be the first and then others see and want to imitate. Try this, because you have nothing to lose.
