First US Public School District Limits Wi-Fi Radiation Exposure to Students and Staff

 

Ashland, Massachusetts Public Schools have implemented Wi-Fi Device “Best Practices” which include turning the Wi-Fi off when not in use and keeping devices on a table.

Ashland, MA — (SBWIRE) — 09/28/2015 — Based on its own review of the matter, the Ashland Public School District is reducing wireless radiation exposures to children by instituting district wide “best practices for mobile devices”. Spurred by parent Cecelia Doucette’s concerns about the lack of safety data on Wi-Fi and children, the district investigated the issue and developed a policy to substantially reduce wireless exposures to students and staff. Doucette not only brought the issue to the district’s attention, but then also worked with state legislatures who introduced two bills concerning electromagnetic radiation this session. The Environmental Health Trust submitted written testimony on MA Senate Bill 1222 after expert scientists presented information on wireless health risks at a briefing at the Massachusetts State House in June 2015.

Since wireless devices are constantly emitting radiation even when the user is not using the Internet, the instruction to “turn it off when not in use ” stops the Wi-Fi antennas from continuously emitting radiation and is one simple way to reduce the radiation dose and exposure time for children and staff.

Instructions for “Best Practices” are posted in every classroom and include:

– Turn off the device when not in use
– Turn Wi-Fi on only when needed
– Always place the mobile device on a solid surface
– Viewing distance should be a minimum of 12 inches from the screen
– Specific product information guides are available through the IT department
– We ask that staff members regularly remind and instruct students in using best practices in regards to mobile devices

Ashland’s Best Practice of “keeping the device on a table” and no closer than a 12 inch viewing distance is critically important. Laptops and tablets have fine print warnings buried in their manuals specifically stating that the laptop should be at least 8 inches away from the user so that the user is not exposed to radiation levels that exceed as-tested FCC levels. If a device is used on a lap, as is common practice, the student could receive radiation levels far exceeding FCC limits. FCC limits are set to prevent the radiation from heating the brain and body but are not set to avoid chronic impacts on the developing nervous system or reproductive organs.

Many are unaware of FCC fine print advisories in the manuals of every wireless device confirming as-tested distances set to avoid heating. Cell phones, laptops and even baby monitors have these specific instructions in their product information guides. By referring to the product information guides, Ashland Public Schools are informing people about the need to keep a distance between the device and our bodies. As a public service, Environmental Health Trust (EHT) has compiled these fine print warnings on their website Showthefineprint.org.

It is important to note that even if users comply with these FCC recommended distances as stated in the device manual, accumulating research shows that biological damage can occur from wireless radiation levels far lower than these FCC levels. FCC limits are only set to protect people from heating harm and do not address non-thermal effects.

This ground breaking policy action by the Massachusetts school district is indicative of the wave of parents raising concerns about Wi-Fi across the country. Ashland, Massachusetts parent Cecelia Doucette wrote an article in Ashland Local Town Pages about these new best practices. Significant news and print media have picked the issue up after Massachusetts parents filed a lawsuit against a private boarding school alleging the school did not accommodate their 12-year-old child’s diagnosed debilitating sensitivity to the school’s WiFi system.

Ashland is the first US public school to create such policy on wireless transmitting devices. However, this US Massachusetts school district now joins dozens of schools and governments that have already implemented even more stringent measures to reduce wireless exposure to children. For example, Israel and France have banned Wi-Fi in kindergarten. The European Union recommends wired Internet rather than wireless in schools.

“Right To Know” efforts by local governments are also moving across the United States.     A judge just upheld Berkeley’s new Cell Phone Right To Know Ordinance which requires cell phone sellers to tell customers about these FCC radio frequency radiation distances.

Suffolk County in New York voted to label wireless routers in all public buildings including schools. The US United Federation of Teachers Union now hosts a webpage on how to reduce exposures to protect pregnant women, other staff members and students.

The Environmental Health Trust maintains a regularly updated database of these worldwide precautionary policies on wireless related to children and schools.

Bret Bocook died in March 2015 of a brain tumor caused by his use of a CELL PHONE

RIP Bret Bocook.   Bret died in March 2015 of a brain tumor caused by his use of a CELL PHONE.

See this https://youtu.be/ueWg82tSnXE

Let’s help get his message out.

In this video Bret talks about many Telecom companies taking out patents for cellphone/antenna designs to lower RF exposure … and how this equates to absolute FOREKNOWLEDGE. That foreknowledge will someday translate to CRIMINAL offenses when the lawyers figure out this is going to be the biggest class action extravaganza in history.

I think that there will be a day in the near future when it is revealed in some way that ALL wireless manufacturers and distributors and federal governments knew and have known for years that the radiation from cell phones when commonly used pressed against the head, that they may cause BRAIN CANCER; that they WILL cause BRAIN CANCER in a portion of the users.

This is the case of FOREKNOWLEDGE and I expect that this will be grounds for pressing CRIMINAL charges against the various companies and governments and the executives and technical staff and even the owners of property on which cell phone towers (masts) have been erected.  There are so many entities that are complicit in this problem.

When this dam of denial breaks then there will be many major class action suits launched and won.    Lloyds of London has already served notice that they want none of this and have stopped insuring anything that is connected with RF radiation which includes CELL PHONES.  They know what is coming. If the retail insurance companies also step out of the line of insurance payment then who will pay for the damage?  The wireless companies will dig deep and pay and then declare bankruptcy.  This is going to be a financial blood bath.  Will the various government pass laws that will prevent any claims because thee will be too much economic turmoil.  Maybe.  They will do what they have to to keep the ship afloat.

The biggest impact will be on the economy when ALL wi-fi and Cell phones will be now used a very limited way.  It is going to be very interesting.  No more free wi-fi in the coffee shops or schools or in the work place.  No more cell towers built on hospitals and tall apartment buildings.  No more seeing people walking down the street glued to their smart phone.  Actually, I think that this may be viewed as a very positive step.

And that will not be the end of the story.  If cancers caused by Cell phone usage takes 10-20 years to be diagnosed then there will be a huge wave of cancers in 2025-2035 that will swamp the health providers and the various health plans.  There are some important studies that predict this just like cancers from tobacco and asbestos.

If you thought that the fight against tobacco and its link to cancer was long and tortuous then just watch this fight, which is going on right now, against Cell phones and other RF Radiation devices which are linked to cancer.

Wi-Fi, Radio frequency Radiation and your Health

Jerry Flynn has made many presentations that show that Radio Frequency Radiation is extremely harmful to YOUR HEALTH.

Here is a short version of his major presentations.

This slide show presentation requires a program on your computer that will display a slide show using file type PPTX.

Jerry Flynn is a retired Canadian Military Captain who spent 22 of 26 years in Canada’s military in Electronic Warfare and Signals Intelligence. His experience included two years in National Defense Headquarters, Ottawa, in the Directorate of Electronic Warfare (EW), during which he worked closely with army EW units of  Canada’s U.S. and NATO allies.
Previously he was the Executive Officer (2-i/c) and Operations Officer at one of Canada’s largest and most sensitive  Intelligence-gathering stations. Earlier still Jerry conducted naval radio warfare operations at sea with U.S., Australian naval forces, having served aboard two Canadian warships.
He currently is a guest on talk shows throughout North America and in the UK and as well has toured throughout BC presenting to audiences on this subject.

The Electromagentic Age – A sleeping Giant by Dr Mac Paterson

Dr Mac Paterson gave a presentation in Kaleden BC on Saturday Feb 21, 2015.  The presentation was attended by about 250 people.

The presentation is not available yet on video but hopefully it soon will be.

Dr Paterson is scheduled to give the presentation in Kelowna and Salmon Arm next month, so watch for the dates and locations.

Here are some of the parts of his presentation that I found interesting.

Dr Paterson has been involved in research all of his career and has many professional publications to his credit.  He specialized in Molecular Oncology.

The Canadian Safety Code 6 is only concerned with the heating effects of radiation and nothing to do with the electrical effects on the human body.  The human body is chemical and electrical in nature and even very low levels of microwave radiation impacts the body.  Safety Code 6 allows 600 µW/cm² (microwatts per square cm) whereas it has been shown that the human body is sensitive to 0.1 µW/cm² ,  a factor of 6,000 times.

The experts that decided on the level of the Safety Code 6 were experts in the physics of electrical RF radiation and there were no experts who knew anything about the effect on the human body’s electrical functioning.  This resulted in this huge discrepancy.

Some people that suffer from EHS (Electro Hyper Sensitivity) feel RF radiation at levels that are 0.5% of the levels allowed by Safety Code 6.

Dr Paterson estimates that about 25,000 people in BC suffer from some level of EHS; mild to severe.  Also, other researchers estimate that 4% to 10% of all people in the world are EHS.  There are estimates that 50% of all people will be EHS soon.  One researcher says by 2017.

There are many studies (42 to date) that confirm the fact that the magnetic field created by high voltage (high tension) power lines does cause a significant increase in childhood leukemia.

Concerning the opt-out of Smart meters, Dr Paterson says that communities, and not individuals, should OPT-OUT.

Pulsed RF radiation has been shown to be 2.5 times more damaging to human health than clean sinusoidal 60 Hz power.

Computers that use the SMPS (switch mode power supply) create significant amounts of DE (dirty electricity) which is pulsed and may (does) cause health effects especially in EHS people.

Tobacco has been shown to have a 20 year lag time between smoking and the average time of the diagnosis of cancer.  RF Radiation is thought to be similar and if so then the numbers of cancers due to RF Radiation will soon increase dramatically.  This will crush the medial systems and the economy.
