Our children, teachers, and staff deserve safe and health technology. Wi-Fi networks and cell phones create high density wireless radiofrequency exposures in classrooms.

Safer solutions do exist that allow internet connectivity but without harmful wireless exposures.

Many schools in the USA and worldwide are replacing wireless with safe wired technology connections due to this research. Teacher unions are passing resolutions for safe technology. Oregon has passed a bill to study the health effects of Wi-Fi in school and the Maryland State Children’s Environmental Health And Protection Council issued the first-ever US state recommendations to reduce classroom wireless exposure.
