Letter From Dr. Lennart Hardell and Dr. Michael Carlberg
"What will be the health effect for a child exposed all day long in school for 12 years? Wireless networks in schools result in full body low level RF radiation exposures that can have a cumulative effect on the developing body of a child. No safe level of this radiation has been determined by any health agency and therefore we have no safety assurances. Cancers can have long latency periods (time from first exposure until diagnosis) and it will take decades before we know the full extent of health impacts from this radiation. The statistics and effects will be borne by the children you serve.
Wi-Fi in schools, in contrast to wired Internet connections, will increase risk of neurologic impairment and long-term risk of cancer in students. Promoting wireless technology in schools disregards the current health warnings from international science and public health experts in this field."

Letter From Dr. Anthony Miller, Advisor the World Health Organization.
"With the people who manufacture these devices and those who promote wi-fi failing to issue adequate health warnings, we are reaching a situation where schools, work places and homes are being saturated with radiofrequency fields.
Thus to avoid a potential epidemic of cancer caused by radiofrequency fields from wi-fi and other devices, we should introduce means to reduce exposure as much as reasonably
achievable, use hard wire connections to the internet and strengthen the codes that are meant to protect the public."

Letter from Dr. Carpenter, Director Institute for Health and the Environment University at Albany
"The exposure levels of the Federal Communications Commission are totally outdated and do not protect the health of the public, especially of children. I urge you to abandon any plans for wireless communication within schools. It is of course critical that all children have access to the Internet, but when this is done through wired connections they will not be exposed to excessive electromagnetic fields."
