School Boards today rely on Health Canada’s Safety Code 6 in their decision to install Wi-Fi in their schools. Read below the numerous organizations and international experts stating that our current guidelines are outdated and do not protect our children and teachers in their classrooms.

Here are common statements made from school board trustees and explanations why they are not acceptable.

C4ST researchers identified 50 studies that demonstrated harm from Wi-Fi and published their findings in Nov., 2015. The studies were conducted on human subjects, laboratory animals and tissue and cell cultures.

  • Fifteen (15) found effects on brain chemistry and oxidative stress.

  • Eleven (11) documented DNA (genetic) damage.

  • Adverse effects were reported on behaviour and learning in ten (10) studies.

  • Nine (9) studies found abnormalities in sperm and testes.

  • Also affected were the immune and cardiovascular systems.

From May 24–31 2011, a Working Group of 31 scientists from 14 countries met at the World Health Organization’s, International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in Lyon, France, to assess the potential carcinogenic hazards from exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields. (IARC) determined that exposure to wireless radiation is a Class 2B possible carcinogen (May 2011). Lead and DDT are on the same list. Dr. Baan, a member of the IARC committee, clarified that the designation “holds for all types of radiation within the radiofrequency part of the electromagnetic spectrum, including the radiation emitted by base-station antennas, radio/TV towers, radar, Wi-Fi, smart meters, etc.”
