A group of central Ontario parents is demanding their children's schools turn off wireless internet before they head back to school next month, fearing the technology is making the kids sick.
Some parents in the Barrie, Ont., area say their children are showing a host of symptoms, ranging from headaches to dizziness and nausea and even racing heart rates.
They believe the Wi-Fi setup in their kids' elementary schools may be the problem.
The parents complain they can't get the Simcoe County school board or anyone else to take their concerns seriously, even though the children's sym
Gro Harlem Brundtland is director-general of the World Health Organization. A medical doctor with a master's degree in public health, as well as former prime minister of Norway, she has recently been speaking in public about her own sensitivity to computers, cordless phones and cell phones. Not only has she warned parents against allowing their children to use cell phones or microwave ovens, but she said that she herself has become so sensitive to the radiation that she does not allow anyone to enter her office with a cell phone turned on. "If you enter my office, you are invited by me. No one who is invited would like to give me headaches," she said at a news conference in Oslo on July 1, 2002, where she was attending an international conference on cancer.
Are these by any chance the same parents who blame Wind turbines on causing illness through vibrations?
None of these parents or kids has wi-fi at home? It's not like they have a huge radar installation going, it's a router like any other for pete's sake.
That's funny, you cant even walk down a street with out being around WI-FI. i know my wireless picks up 17 neighbors with in 2 block of me. and you think just turning it off in a school will do anything? There are so many "hot spots" around town that they wont be able to leave the house.
Could be schoolitis. I used to get sick every Monday morning but come Friday afternoon, I felt fine and was rarin to go.
There was an MIT under grad study on the Effects of WiFi on people. They had a WiFi generator that had antennas, dials and blinking lights. When the generator was brought in the room and and turned on the subjects felt the effects. When it was turned off and removed from the room off the subjects felt much better.
The machine did nothing.
The ceiling of the room was loaded with active WiFi base stations that were on all the time yet the subjects only reacted when the fake WiFi generator was turned on an in the room.

Well study after study recommends that children's use of cellphones be limited. I can't see how wi-fi is any different.
