Wi-Fi in Schools – Health Risk Concerns

Is WiFi Safe? This is the question on the minds of many parents in Australia whose children attend schools that have rolled out WiFi in their classrooms.

Building biologist Nicole Bijlsma warns about the health impacts of radio frequencies from wireless devices upon children.  Meanwhile, one primary school in South Australia has installed wired internet in reaction to reports of health problems from WiFi.

Pippa Gardner from Channel 7 reports:

  1. It probably depends on how “strong” the Wifi Radiation is.

  2. Mums Instinct says:

    People are fooling themselves if they do not think their childrens long term health is going to be affected. With only four responses to this post, I guess education of the masses will take a very long time….. really sad and disappointing to say the least! You all need to listen to those who already know the truth, such as Snowy (below) and of course, Nicole. Stand Up, don’t be stupid. Stop exposing children to wireless devices of ALL kinds until such a time as they are deemed safe.

  3. Ashley says:

    Innovative breakthrough: Russian LiFi system uses light to transmitt wireless data faster than Wifi in Office, School, or Home, yet poses no radiation dangers and no eavesdropping vulnerability.

  4. Sick Of Their Lies says:

    Great to see mainstream media starting to report on this serious issue.
    Well done Channel 7.

  5. Jozsef says:

    They probably cut very short Nicole Bijlsma’s interview, health impacts of microwave radiation for children is not only headaches, fatigue, dizziness and sleeping problems, but DNA damage, leukemia, cancer, neurological and thyroid damage, also impacts bone development, etc.

    Is Wifi Safe? Is radar safe? Same thing.
    Back when the Nobel Prize was not handed out on the basis of celebrity,… back when it meant something, … the study of bioelectromagnetism in the human body had not yet become systematically ignored by industry lobbyists and the world..
    THE BODY ELECTRIC: ELECTROMAGNETISM AND THE FOUNDATION OF LIFE was written by a dedicated surgeon in pursuit of limb regeneration, healing insight and all manner of positive pursuits in aid of mankind. Written by Robert O Becker, it is a layman’s guide, a classic exploration of our bioelectric selves, and how to use knowledge for healing, and regeneration. Of course Becker was heavily persecuted by scientists who continue to believe that the body, the brain and the entire universe are merely mechanical, not electrical. Which is bizarre, since the Nobel Prize was awarded to so many for discovering just that, that the entire universe is indeed exquisitely subtle and entirely guided by its electrical properties, as are we.
    Artificial wireless networks of every sort have been superimposed by corporations to blanket and suffocate all sustainability of all bioelectrical biology.
    The wireless industry has seduced the gullible who now spew radiation over one another and children with no rights in schools overseen by those with no brains, by those who leave all around them awash in cell tower freqencies everywhere in public spaces with every “convenient” cell/mobile call they make and take.
    Wireless is now in the process of dominating and slowly destroying the very essence of life, as bees are making clear, not to mention its use is able to void ERRORS AND OMISSIONS INSURANCE, home insurance, and more, which will no longer cover boards of education, electrical engineers, inspectors, staff working for entire cities, all of whom are violating electrical and building codes while inducing arcing and accelerated corrosion and ageing of humans and infrastructure alike.
    Just as with Einstein’s horror to see his work become put to use as the Atom bomb, such is just as true with bioelectrical discoveries which if applied with respect will enhance life, but we witness wondrous discoveries instead harnessed by industry to aid and abet destruction, degeneration, damage and death for profit.

    1.5 NOBEL PRIZES IN BIOELECTROMAGNETISM

    The discipline of bioelectromagnetism is strongly reflected in the work of many Nobel laureates. It should be noted that 16 Nobel prizes have been given for contributions to the discipline of bioelectromagnetism and closely related subjects. Of these prizes, 12 were in physiology or medicine; four were in chemistry. Although some perhaps do not directly concern bioelectromagnetism, they are very closely related. Since several individuals may have shared an award, the actual number of Nobel laureates is 28. The large number of these Nobel laureates shows that bioelectromagnetism is recognized as a very important discipline. Nobel laureates associated with bioelectromagnetism are listed in Table 1.6. (below)
    One should probably add to this list the names of Gabriel Jonas Lippman and Dennis Gabor, although they did not receive their Nobel Prize for their work in bioelectromagnetism.
    Gabriel Lippman received the Nobel Prize in physics in 1908 for his photographic reproduction of colors. But he was also the inventor of the capillary electrometer (Lippman, 1873). The capillary electrometer was a more sensitive measuring instrument than the astatic galvanometer and was an important contribution to the technology by which bioelectric events were recorded.
    Dennis Gabor received the Nobel Prize in physics in 1971 from the invention of holography. He was also the senior author of the Gabor-Nelson theorem, which is used to ascertain the equivalent dipole of a volume source by measurements of the electric potential on the surface of the volume conductor (Gabor and Nelson, 1954).
    One should also note that Georg von Békésy received the Nobel Prize for his discoveries of the physical mechanism of stimulation within the cochlea. His discoveries have, however, contributed most significantly to the analysis of the relation between the mechanical and the electric phenomena in the receptors involved in the transformation of sound into nerve impulses. Therefore, von Békésy’s name is included in this list..
