You may have already done your research on cell phone safety, realized it’s not safe for adults or children and either drastically reduced your usage, gotten an air tube headset, or like me, just stopped using one (along with your cordless phone in your house, which uses the same microwave frequency).
But have you thought about WiFi safety, or wireless computer/internet safety? Perhaps you have a wireless computer network in your house, or at work? Or perhaps your kids’ school has installed a WiFi router to service their wireless computers? Or perhaps your kids play for hours on a Wii or Nintendo DS – both of which use wireless pulsed microwave radiation technology?
Here’s the big RUB: It doesn’t matter if your kids are using the computers or not, if the school has WiFi, they are being irradiated continuously, whether they are using a computer or not. That’s why this issue is making me crazy – I used to think, “Well, my kids aren’t on the computers so they’re okay.” NOT.
We have many scientists and researchers stepping forward to share the results of their research, and one of them is Barrie Trower – who worked as a specialist in microwave and stealth weaponry for the British military for 11 years.
Here’s what Barrie Trower has to say about WiFi or wireless radiation in schools:
For anyone who tells you there isn’t enough solid data on cell phone or WiFi risks, just point them to this page of quotes from experts on electromagnetic frequencies and radiation.
Here’s one of my favorites:
“We are constantly being bathed in an increasing sea of radiation from exposure to the above, as well as electrical appliances, computers, Bluetooth devices, Wi-Fi installations and over 2,000 communications satellites in outer space that shower us with signals to GPS receivers. New WiMax transmitters on cell phone towers that have a range of up to two square miles compared to Wi-Fi’s 300 feet will soon turn the core of North America into one huge electromagnetic hot spot. Children are more severely affected because their brains are developing and their skulls are thinner. A two-minute call can alter brain function in a child for an hour, which is why other countries ban their sale or discourage their use under the age of 18. In contrast, this is the segment of the population now being targeted here in a $2 billion U.S. advertising campaign that views “tweens” (children between 8 and 12 years old) as the next big cell phone market. Firefly and Barbie cell phones are also being promoted for 6 to 8-year-olds.
It is not generally appreciated that there is a cumulative effect and that talking on a cell phone for just an hour a day for ten years can add up to 10,000 watts of radiation. That’s ten times more than from putting your head in a microwave oven. Pregnant women may also be at increased risk based on a study showing that children born to mothers who used a cell phone just two or three times a day during pregnancy showed a dramatic increase in hyperactivity and other behavioral and emotional problems. And for the 30% of children who had also used a cell phone by age 7, the incidence of behavioral problems was 80% higher! Whether ontogeny (embryonic development) recapitulates phylogeny is debatable, but it is clear that lower forms of life are also much more sensitive. If you put the positive electrode of a 1.5 volt battery in the Pacific Ocean at San Francisco and the negative one off San Diego, sharks in the in between these cities can detect the few billionths of a volt electrical field. EMF fields have also been implicated in the recent massive but mysterious disappearance of honeybee colonies essential for pollinating over 90 commercial crops. As Albert Einstein warned, “If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would only have four years of life left.”
