The people who work in the school system are committed to supporting children to learn and grow up to be responsible, productive members of society. When we parents learn that our children are being exposed to harmful radiation levels at school, which can lead to learning issues, depression, and suicide, it is a human response to be upset, assume the worst, and be angry at the school staff, Principal, or Technology director.
However, in most cases, these staff members simply have no idea that the classroom cellphones, laptops, iPads, and routers could be harmful. The people who have installed wifi in businesses, residences, and schools are often not aware either.
Allan Brennan became Ireland's 7th Certified Wireless Professional and founded Wi-Fi Projects Ltd. In 2004 the company became Ireland's 1st Certified Wireless Network Provider. He was awarded 'Fellow of the Irish Computer Society' for his contribution and promotion of the Irish Wireless Industry. During his career in the wireless industry, he was not aware or informed about known non-thermal exposure health risks and microwave hearing. You can watch a video of his experience here.
He sends this statement specifically to share with your school staff:
“As someone who thoroughly believed in the benefits and capabilities of wireless technology, I was completely unaware that intense WiFi exposure could cause adverse health effects in children (headaches, earaches, sore eyes/stomach, nose bleeds, skin rash, brain fog, depression and more) and did not know children had been identified as a 'high-risk group' in 2011. Schools should use wired networks to protect our children's best interests, not WiFi.
If a school uses WiFi, the least they can do is adhere to the precautionary and As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA) principles - for example - Turn on WiFi when needed and turn it off when finished.”
For most staff members, this information is new, and they need our support to understand why and what they can do.
We have partnered with organizations to share their information to support you in doing so. In our own experience, with our own children's school staff, we know bringing this information can make a huge difference. As long as we are calm, professional, and approach them in partnership, we can work together to keep our children safe.Read more
