"FCC standards do not consider the effects of radiofrequency radiation (RFR) emitted by WiFi on children or pregnant women " Writes Author of Electronic Silent Spring Katie Singer to Montgomery County Schools

"Your school system has the opportunity to develop safer practices: to hard-wire computer use;  help children recognize when they need eye-to-eye conversation or  non-electronic activities. I urge you to serve as a model for the country and to develop practices that encourage safe use of technology."

Dear Montgomery County Schools Chief Operating Officer Dr.  Andrew Zuckerman and Montgomery County Public School Board of Education Members,

Re: Health effects from wireless LAN in schools

Your report about the health effects from wireless LAN in schools contains erroneous information. For example, it states that "FCC standards are not outdated." In fact, FCC standards do not consider the effects of radiofrequency radiation (RFR) emitted by WiFi on  children or pregnant women (including pregnant teachers). While the  FCC does not recognize that children absorb radiation differently than  adults, since children's skulls are thinner and smaller than adult  skulls, the U.S. Air Force does recognize this difference: Roach,

FCC standards do not consider the effects of exposure to RFR from Wi-Fi emitted in a building with metal roofing (such as many schools  have). Meanwhile, in the IEEE's June 23, 2015 issue of Spectrum, Dr. Om  Gandhi, professor of electrical engineering at the University of Utah,  has served as Co-chair of IEEE's SCC 28.IV Subcommittee on RF Safety  Standards (1988-97) and as Chair of IEEE's Committee on Man and  Radiation (COMAR) 1981-82, published, "Yes the children are more  exposed to radio-frequency energy from mobile telephones than adults." In this peer-reviewed paper, Dr. Gandhi writes that "it is very hard  to understand why" the FCC's safety guidelines only consider the head of a mannequin whose size is in the 90th percentage of US military  recruits. http://bit/y/1CWO1od

In a lecture reporting on peer-reviewed literature, "Children, Radiation and Health," British MD Dr. Erica Mallery-Blythe outlines  the effects of RFR exposure on children:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNFdZVeXw7M
Further, to avoid Electronic Screen Syndrome and addiction to technology (different from RFR exposure), children need to learn how  to regulate their use of electronic devices.

Your school system has the opportunity to develop safer practices: to hard-wire computer use;  help children recognize when they need eye-to-eye conversation or  non-electronic activities. I urge you to serve as a model for the country and to develop practices that encourage safe use of technology.
