Open Letter to Schools and School Boards on Wi -Fi



Presentation to December Board meeting

Nov 30, 2010

Hello Maria,

I apologize for getting back so late; as for many, life is very busy and I'm trying to keep up with things as they come. If you would, please forward this email with attachments to all members of The Board for review; we are eager to share this vital health information regarding the safety of Wi-Fi in schools and appreciate the opportunity to present in person at the upcoming School District meeting on Dec. 7th. We will have three speakers presenting on Wi-Fi in schools: Karen Weiss (son suffers with EHS); Walt McGinnis (certified electrician and EMR consultant); and Robb Jeske (concerned parent & cancer survivor). If possible i would like a few minutes at the start to introduce our group and distribute some handouts that i have. I understand each speaker has approx. 10 minutes. Is there any objection if someone wants to give a portion of their time to the other? Also may we please use a projector and screen if there is one available? If not we do have one if we are allowed to set up ahead of time. I have provided some attachments that include: a comprehensive preamble on the public health risks of wireless technology; the City of Colwood?s Proclamation on the environmental sensitivity EHS; a scientific report from the Royal Society of Canada that acknowledges leakage of the blood brain barrier, DNA damage, and other biological effects, also identifying children as a vulnerable sub group; a study funded by T-Mobil that clearly identifies the damaging effects from low level exposure to microwave, radio frequency radiation and; German/Swiss recommendations to schools to keep computers hard wired for safety. Some attachments are large, so please let me know if there is any trouble and i will try to provide a link instead.

Dear members of The Board of Education,

We thank the Chair, Wendy Hobbs, for hearing our concern as parents and allowing us the opportunity to present crucial health information on the growing body of research that indicates repetitive exposure to microwave radiation from wireless technology significantly increases the risk for many illnesses, chronic diseases, and cancers, with children being at the greatest risk.

Ubiquitous use of wireless communication devices and the proliferation of cellular infrastructure has created a saturated environment of microwave, radiofrequency radiation that many scientists affirm is damaging to our health and puts our children at great risk for serious health outcomes with prolonged exposure. In our insatiable world of wireless a growing number of the population experience ill symptoms when around devices that emit energy fields known as electromagnetic sensitivity (EHS). Adverse symptoms range from mild to severe and often start with headaches and concentration difficulty (brain fog) but may also include symptoms such as extreme fatigue, nausea, dizziness, fast or irregular heart beat, insomnia, night sweats, sinus congestion, asthma, tinnitus, burning eyes, restless leg syndrome, and skin rashes. Many countries including Canada recognize EHS as an environmental sensitivity, however, Health Canada has done nothing to strengthen exposure standards and still allows radiation levels hundreds to thousands of times higher than many other countries do; the usual mantra from federal representatives to the public 'there is no convincing evidence' is used to diffuse any health concerns and avert action when mounting international evidence would prove otherwise.

Many industry critics say there is no proof that low level non-ionizing microwave radiation is harmful, but there is only need to look to Swiss COM, the government owned telecommunications provider that applied for a patent for a method to completely eliminate the radiation caused by the Wi-Fi base station when not in use. http://www.magdahavas.com/2010/10/20/free-internet-access-in-swiss-schools-no-wifi/

In this patent document, Swiss COM admits damage to hereditary material with increased risk for cancer, and even includes studies conducted by scientists at the World Health Organization! The patent comes at a time when the Swiss government (home to the WHO) has enacted some of the world strictest radiation guidelines. Of course these new limits are not welcomed by the telecommunication industry, nonetheless, it is law and they are forced to comply. It is important to note cell phones and Wi-Fi technology were never pre market tested for safety nor is industry required to monitor for potential health effects such as with the food and pharmaceutical industry

It is vital members of the Board review all credible, non industry funded science to attain a more accurate assessment of what the true risk is to health using wireless technology in our schools, considering the potential short term and long term health implications to our children and teachers who would be exposed to microwave radiation for many hours daily, five days a week. It is important to note many schools are constructed with industrial grade materials, using thick concrete and highly reflective metallic surfaces; certain areas may have higher exposure levels (hot spots) due to proximity to powerful commercial grade transmitters and reflective metal surfaces such as roofs and siding may amplify radiation levels within increasing the risk even greater.

We must ask: when will it be enough evidence to warrant precaution with our children?s lives? Does the definition of precaution not mean 'action taken in advance to protect against possible danger, failure, or injury; a safeguard'? Children rely on adults to make prudent decisions on their behalf, never is it acceptable to gamble with their young lives. And why would we potentially wager everything for a mere convenience when we have safer alternatives that achieve the same goal- it is called cables. These cables are well insulated to withstand and contain powerful energy fields, unlike children?s immature brains and central nervous system that are vulnerable and not fully protected until into the twenties.

As concerned and responsible parents we want to share scientific evidence and technical information to support why computers should remain hard wired in schools and offer viable alternatives to Wi-Fi along with simple safety measures that can make hand held learning devices such as ipads and E-books much safer to use, still allowing versatility in and outside the classroom but with out harmful emissions. In a time where wireless is almost inescapable, let us consider making schools a safer, greener environment that is conducive to clear thinking and healthy bodies, providing an optimal learning atmosphere that still utilizes the necessary modern tools for learning without the threat to health.

Clearly the safety of students and staff is paramount and we are confident Board members will act with due diligence to ensure that this remains the priority when considering any technology within our schools. With that said, please consider a moratorium on any further Wi-Fi installation until such time as a comprehensive review of all relevant health information is completed to ensure safety. We look forward to discussion and answering any questions The Board may have on this crucial issue of Wi-Fi (microwave radiation) in our schools.

Subject: Presentation to December Board meeting

Good morning,

Further to the invitation from our Board Chair, Wendy Hobbs, the date of our Board of Education meeting in December is Tuesday, December 7th.

The public meeting begins at 8:00 p.m., and your presentation would be early on the agenda. The Board Office is located at 3143 Jacklin Road in Langford, and the Board Room is just off the main lobby. The Board asks that presentations be kept to approximately ten minutes. If you would like written material included in the agenda package that is sent to participants in advance, please send it to me before Tuesday, November 30th, for the agenda planning meeting.

Could you please confirm if you will be able to make your presentation at that time, and let me know the name(s) of the presenter(s).

Thanks very much,
