Health issues with Wi-Fi in schools

There are health concerns from long term exposure to radiation from Wi-Fi in schools for everyone - school employees and students, but especially for certain populations that currently exist in the school system.  

The exposure of an incoming CCS kindergarten student is significant - 6.5 hours a day x 5 days a week x 40 weeks a year = 1,300 hours x 13 years =  16,900 hours (long term exposure). 
An Air Force study titled "Long-Term Low-Level Microwave Irradiation of Rats" was completed in 1984, published in Bioelectromagnetics, Volume 13, Issue 6, pages 469 - 496, 1992, and published online 10/19/05, came to the following conclusions:
Long term low level exposure to Wi-Fi:  
  1. promotes tumors in rats
  2. increases tumor occurrence vs no Wi-Fi
-  16% increase in benign cancers
-  100% increase in metastatic cancers
-  260% increase in primary cancers
  1. negative impact on the immune system
  2. promotes a decrease in sperm motility and viability potentially leading to fertility problems
  3. possible DNA damage
  4. "rouleaux" formations of the blood (red blood cells clump together)
  5. contributes to headaches, dizziness, concentration issues, nausea, weakness, etc.
  6. arrhythmia and tachycardia
  7. damages the heart
  8. can cause heart irregularities
One in 700 children has Wolfe-Parkinson-White Syndrome and when those children are exposed to Wi-Fi, it causes arrhythmia and tachycardia.
Historically, world-wide, when parents, teachers, and students in schools have discovered and proven dangerous levels of Wi-Fi radiation in the schools, nothing is done with the information by administration.    

According to Dr. Magda Havas, BSc, PhD, Associate Professor of Environmental and Resource Studies, Trent University, Peterborough, Canada, there are people who are especially sensitive to Wi-Fi, but that long term exposure to Wi-Fi can result in medical problems for others that may not be evident for years. 

Obviously, in Dr. Rock's intent to make Clarkston Community Schools the first major public school district in the country to install district wide Wi-Fi and provide wireless devices to all students, he apparently failed to look to see if it was actually safe to do so.  I hope that Dr. Rock does actually care enough about the health and safety of the students and the district employees to "JUST SAY NO TO Wi-Fi".

  1. Technically this condition involves a switch in the beat of the heart as it takes on an irregular pattern. This is a very serious medical condition and one that needs to be treated and cared for by a Medical Doctor as soon as possible. If not treated properly it can lead to death.

  2. Kaney,

    I am guessing that you are referring to the Wolfe-Parkinson-White Syndrome. Yes, that is true. The powerful wireless communication radiation from the antennas/masts as well as all of the wireless devices, iPads, etc., could have been fatal for a student with WPW Syndrome.

    One of the CHS students who was checked out by the cardiologists from Beaumont Hospital last year discovered that the teen had WPW Syndrome. The boy had to undergo multiple surgeries to prevent his heart from having the arrhythmia brought on by the microwave radiation in school. Had he not had the surgery, just sitting in a classroom with his classmates using the internet from their wireless devices could have triggered a fatal arrhythmia.

    This is a disorder that affects 1 in 700 children. With over 8,000 students in CCS, there could be more than eleven students who have it and their health could be at risk just going to school if it is all wired up and operational.
