Read The Evidence That Industrial Strength Wi-Fi in Schools Could Cause Harm

"Where is the evidence? Where is the research?" 
In response to these questions, we put together this short post.   The fact is that there are quite literally thousands of studies showing that radio frequency radiation causes biological effects.

While the scientists sort this mess out we parents think it makes sense to use the safest technology in schools.

Please see these two recent studies to start...

Highlights From this study:
  • Oxidative stress plays important role in biology of Wi-Fi (2.45 GHz)
  • 2.45 GHz increased oxidative stress in brain and liver pregnant rats and their newborns.
  • Brain seems sensitive to oxidative injury in the development of newborns.
"In conclusion, Wi-Fi-induced oxidative stress in the brain and liver of developing rats ...Moreover, the brain seemed to be more sensitive to oxidative injury compared to the liver in the development of newborns."

  • MicroRNAs (miRNA) play a paramount role in growth, differentiation, proliferation and cell death by suppressing one or more target genes. However, their interaction with radiofrequencies is still unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate the long-term effects of radiofrequency radiation emitted from a Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) system on some of the miRNA in brain tissue.
  • RESULTS: The results revealed that long-term exposure of 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi radiation can alter expression of some of the miRNAs .

  • CONCLUSION: Long-term exposure of 2.4 GHz RF may lead to adverse effects such as neurodegenerative diseases originated from the alteration of some miRNA expression and more studies should be devoted to the effects of RF radiation on miRNA expression levels.
