In 2010, Dr. Annie Sasco – Teaching fellow of Harvard University and former Chief of the World Health Organization’s Cancer Control Programme – testified to the Canadian Parliament Standing Committee on Health, “With regard to electromagnetic fields, we have, of course. more than plenty of evidence of exposure… We may never have the absolute final proof, but if our goal is to reduce somewhat the burden of cancer and other chronic diseases in the years to come, we have enough data to go ahead with a precautionary principle to avoid unnecessary exposure.”19
We as parents support the use of technology as a tool in education, and believe that wired connection to the internet is the best way to provide educational benefits without long-term health risks for children. Unfortunately, avoiding unnecessary exposure for health is not the priority of trillion-dollar corporations.
