A B.C. school district concerned about the dangers of wireless signals is reviewing a CTV investigation revealing that radiation levels in classrooms equipped with Wi-Fi aren’t any higher than in those without.

The Greater Victoria School Board has placed a moratorium on the installation of wireless systems until it hears from a committee studying the potential for health impacts. But after hearing about a CTV News investigation on wireless signal exposure, school board chair Peg Ocherton said she wants to know more.
“I’d be interested in actually seeing the report. If CTV’s willing to share that fully with us, that would be great. I’d give it to the committee for their referral,” she told CTV News.

After her request, CTV forwarded information to Orcherton, who will ask her committee to review it before making recommendations to the board.
She admitted the board is taking a prudent approach.
“The question for us is student safety,” Orcherton said, adding that there are at least two students who have health problems their parents believe are connected to electromagnetic emissions.
In tests conducted at four Vancouver schools, children in schools with Wi-Fi installed were found to have about the same exposure to electromagnetic emissions produced by the devices as schools without Wi-Fi. The levels inside schools were about 10 times lower than a student would feel outside in the playground or walking to school.
Vancouver School Board chair Patti Bacchus said she wasn’t surprised by the results.
“We overall feel that we have been assured that it is a safe technology, that is appropriate for use in schools,” she said.
The B.C. Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils voted in May to ask each school district in the province to set aside at least one school at each education level without Wi-Fi, cordless phones or cell phones, in response to some parents’ beliefs that the waves can cause everything from headaches to cancer.
After being shown the results of CTV’s investigation, confederation chair John Puddifoot said he would speak with his board.

“I’d love to have had this data before the resolution was passed,” he said.
Dave Michelson, a researcher at the University of B.C. Radio Science lab, studies radio waves, and says the emissions from wireless devices carry millions of times less energy than cancer-causing rays like UV from the sun.

“The miracle of wireless communications is we can detect signals that weak and get information out of them. As far as any physical effects, they’re too weak to have almost any physical effect,” he said.
Karl Reardon, the Planetworks engineer who performed the tests for CTV News, said that the signals coming from the Wi-Fi units were too low to measure on most equipment.

“It’s so far below any of the standards; it’s literally thousand of times below the Health Canada limits. It’s comparable and lower than the environment we’re exposed to every day when we’re outdoors,” he said.
The province’s two largest school districts, Vancouver and Surrey, are hoping to have Wi-Fi installed in all of their schools by the end of next year.

British Physicist and Microwave Weapons Expert Barrie Trower Warns Our Children are at Great Risk from WiFi Radiation

There continues to be controversy about the use of WiFi in the classroom. To add to the confusion, over the past year or so, we are learning that WiFi transmitters emit Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) similar to the microwave radiations used in the design of microwave weaponry. Barrie Trower, a British physicist and microwave weapons expert has been sharing his experiences on the subject to audiences considering WiFi in the classroom.

When connected to these potential dangers, keep your distance from the source, such as your WiFi router. When using your laptop computer, iPad, tablet or other handheld device in your lap, be sure to use a laptop radiation shield. Protecting yourself using an Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) shield from devices at zero distance from the body will eliminate the worst dangers the WiFi transmitter can deliver.

Background on Barrie Trower and WiFi

With most of the career with the Royal British Navy and military intelligence, Barrie Trower dedicated much of his career in the study of the effect of microwave energy on the human body. He recently came out of retirement to share his experiences about WiFi in part, because he strongly understands that microwave radiation and WiFi radiation are very similar. Both are health risks to humans and not harmless as others may claim.

In various interviews and presentations to, for example, to Health Canada, Mr. Trower delivers a common theme – WiFi is dangerous. He says that WiFi signals are equal to those used in microwave weapons and that they are threats to humans, particularly the elderly and children. When it comes to children and WiFi, Mr. Trower says, “children are physiologically and neurologically immature. It takes years for the blood-brain barrier to form, leaving children more prone to cell-leakage from microwave radiation.” When visiting children in schools, he notes that WiFi exposure is causing health problems that include, nausea, headaches and vision problems. He further says, “Children have less dense bones, immature immune systems and, by virtue of their size, they can act as aerials. Females have more complex hormone based systems to be disrupted than males.”

In another example, Trower says, “I was previously aware of reports concerning dead birds in and around communication bases. On examination these birds were found to be cooked.” He was referring to powerful microwave communications having the capacity to oscillate cells sufficiently as to cook the birds alive. Additionally, he points out that Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) can give us headaches, disrupt our sleep, open us up to infection and create fatigue. He goes on to say that, in high concentrations and over large durations of time, it has been documented that these radiations can cause cancers, like leukemia.

What Does All This Mean?

Laptops, tablets, and other handheld devices connected to the internet via WiFi, can either rest on a desktop or a child’s lap emitting Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR). Elsewhere within a building, there are access points and routers, also transmitting Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR). When directly near the router transmitters, children are exposed to the strongest signal the equipment can emit. Even moving only a few feet away, exposure dangers quickly diminish. As a good rule of thumb, at four foot away, exposure levels and associated health dangers are greatly reduced.

Mr. Trower believes all exposure is dangerous, but sometimes you may find it important to be connected to the internet via a WiFi connection. Maybe you are traveling, or maybe your university offers WiFi, or maybe you just have a WiFi router you use at home. In many ways, WiFi is impossible to avoid. The most intense exposure is when you electronic device is on your lap at zero distance away from the body. For these conditions, find laptop radiation protection. Putting an Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) shield between you and the device removes the worst of the exposure danger.

Conclusion

WiFi in our classrooms, by some, is considered as dangerous as military microwave weaponry. At the very least, we should be aware of the potential dangers and find ways to avoid them. Keep your distance from radiating sources or use laptop radiation protection when using laptop computers, tablets and other handheld devices that contain WiFi transmitters that emit Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR).
