2020:

“The exposure to non-ionizing Electromagnetic Radiation (EMF/RF) is universal, manifold and uninterrupted. It will grow geometrically, and there is already a scattered inadvertent exposure. The dangers associated with it particularly affect children (cancer, effects on brain development and fertility).

For this reason, and on the basis of ongoing scientific evidence, the Cyprus Committee proposes the adoption of the Precautionary  Prinsiple and ALARA (As Low Exposure As Possible). The reduction of exposure is in our hands and is made possible by the application of good practices.

The Committee’s four videos on EMF/RF Radiation, regarding it’s effects on children, foetuses/pregnant women and teenagers  can be viewed below. All the videos contain English subtitles.

The President and the members of the Cyprus National Committee cordially thank Mr. Loucas Hamatsos for his consecutive non-profit participation in the informative videos on Electromagnetic Radiation Radiofrequency (EMF/RF), Mrs. Katerina Agapitou also for her non-profit participation in the video on pregnancy and the fetus, all the participants for their voluntary contribution, the producer Mr. Miltos Hadjoulles, and everyone who assisted in the production of the videos.”

Schools are under pressure
“Schools are in a difficult position as they are under pressure to incorporate ICT (information and communication technology) more fully into the curriculum.  They are being encouraged to consider Wi-Fi due to the ease of installation and the money saved as a result.  The idea that children and staff can use computers at any time and anywhere on the school grounds is an attractive one.  But this is only attractive if the technology is safe.  Schools need to weigh up the risks from wireless technologies suggested in the scientific literature, the calls for action made by the European Environment Agency, International Commission for Electromagnetic Safety, the Bio-Initiative report and others and address the concerns of parents and staff.  Are the educational advantages of wireless computers over similar wired-up ones worth the potential effects on health and development?
Schools need to be safe places for children and young people and provide safe working conditions for their staff.”

“Children are exposed to Wi-Fi/2.45GHz in schools every day, around the world. Children are sitting with Wi-Fi-enabled tablet computers on their laps and up against their bodies for prolonged periods of time.  The studies below support the claim that schools giving children wireless devices to use, or exposing them to Wi-Fi signals, are failing to safeguard the health, development or wellbeing of the young people for whom they are responsible.”

“Every child has the non-negotiable, obvious right to a healthy and safe school environment.
Governments and school boards can no longer trust the wireless communication industry’s monotonous slogan that Wi-Fi and cell phones are safe. In May 2011, the World Health Organization (WHO) classified microwave radiation, emitted by such wireless devices, as a possible carcinogen. WHO could no longer ignore the scientific and social pressure from

numerous studies, which have shown that Wi-Fi/cell phone radiation penetrates the body, affects cell membranes, makes cells lose their ability to function properly over time, and disturbs the body’s normal metabolism causing numerous abnormalities and diseases.
Children are especially vulnerable to microwave radiation because their nervous system and especially the brain are still developing. Moreover, their skulls are thinner and smaller than those of the adults, so the radiation penetrates their brains more freely and deeply.
Microwave radiation displays in children life threatening short and long term effects: the short term effects are experienced as headaches, dizziness, nausea, vertigo, fatigue, visual and auditory distortion (voices change volume, ringing ears), abnormal heart rates (racing heart rate or tachycardia, erratic heart rates), memory loss, attention deficit (trouble concentrating while in class), skin rash, hyperactivity, anxiety, autism, depression, night sweats, insomnia (microwaves affect melatonin levels), learning impairment, behavioural changes etc; the long term effects are expressed as stress, a weakened immune system, seizures, epilepsy, high blood pressure, brain damage, diabetes, fibromyalgia, infertility, birth defects, DNA damage, leukemia, cancer, etc.”

Safeguarding in Schools

Safeguarding definition from ‘Safeguarding in Schools: Best Practice’, Ofsted, September 2011. Ref 100240. 

http://www.ofsted.gov.uk/resources/safeguarding-schools-best-practice

 

“Protecting children and learners from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children’s and learners’ health or development; ensuring that children and learners are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; undertaking that role so as to enable those children and learners to have optimum life chances and to enter adulthood successfully.”

The evidence is now indisputable and children are many times more at risk than adults

Dr Mae-Wan Ho, PhD, FRSA, Director of the Institute of Science in Society, London, UK:
“It is very important for schools and other public places frequented by children to be free of Wi- Fi. The evidence on ‘non-thermal’ biological effects of very weak electromagnetic fields is now indisputable and children are many times more at risk than adults.”

Wifi must be deemed highly hazardous and unsafe for the children as well as for the staff.

Dr Olle Johansson, Associate Professor, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, and Professor, The Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden.:
“Wireless systems, such as Wi-Fi routers and cell/mobile/smart phones, cannot be regarded as safe in schools, but must be deemed highly hazardous and unsafe for the children as well as for the staff.” (Safe Schools 2012)


Dr Olle Johansson, Associate Professor, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, and Professor, The Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden:
2018: “ I’m just surprised that our society including parliament, government, health authorities, citizens, parents, and more are so quickly willing to expose their kids to things that in laboratory experiments have been very detrimental to life”. (From “I´m not the only one.” by Jolie Jones).

WI-FI must be banned from school deployment

Letter about Wi-Fi in schools: http://wifiinschools.org.uk/resources/Carpenter+letter+Feb2011.pdf.
“Chronic, such as all-day, school exposure, is more likely than short and intermittent exposure, such as cell phone use, to produce harmful health effects, and is likely to do so at lower exposure levels. Persons stationed close to school computers with WI-FI and especially those very near to any WI-FI infrastructure will receive considerably higher exposure than do others.
Exposure to high-frequency radiofrequency (RF) and microwave (MW) radiation and also the extreme low frequency (ELF) EM fields that accompany WI-FI exposure have been linked to a variety of adverse health outcomes. Some of the many adverse effects reported to be associated with and/or caused by ELF fields and/or RF/MW radiation include neurologic, endocrine, immune, cardiac, reproductive and other effects, including cancers. Human studies of comparable RF/MW radiation parameters show changes in brain function including memory loss, retarded learning, performance impairment in children, headaches and neurodegenerative conditions, melatonin suppression and sleep disorders, fatigue, hormonal imbalances, immune dysregulation such as allergic and inflammatory responses, cardiac and blood pressure problems, genotoxic effects like miscarriage, cancers such as childhood leukemia, childhood and adult brain tumors, and more.
Children are more vulnerable to RF/MW radiation because of the susceptibility of their developing nervous systems. RF/MW penetration is greater relative to head size in children, who have a greater absorption of RF/MW energy in the tissues of the head at WI-FI frequencies. Children are largely unable to remove themselves from exposures to harmful substances in their environments. Their exposure is involuntary. There is a major legal difference between an exposure that an individual chooses to accept and one that is forced upon a person, especially a dependent, who can do nothing about it. WI-FI must be banned from school deployment.” (Safe Schools 2012)

Imprisoning Children and Teachers in Microwaved Classrooms Is a Crime Beyond Belief!

James G. (“Jerry”) Flynn, Captain (Retʼd), Canadian Armed Forces:
”Imprisoning Children and Teachers in Microwaved Classrooms Is a Crime Beyond Belief!”
“ Inconceivably, precious children and their teachers are forced – every moment they are at school – to sit in classrooms with powerful industrial-grade Wi-Fi routers above their heads that emit the more dangerous ʻpulsedʼ form of M/W radiation on frequencies which the US Military knows are lethal to all human organs and organ systems: 2.4 GHz or both 2.4 and 5.8 GHz! W-Fi routers emit their pulsed non-thermal radiation in all directions constantly, 24/7/365, blanketing entire areas ranging in distance from just hundreds of feet out to encompass a schoolʼs entire property!
Non-industry scientists know that the harmful biological and health effects of low-level pulsed radiation are cumulative. It is not a question of IF a student or teacher will be harmed, but how much accumulated radiation over how many months and/or years can their individual bodies endure before they succumb to serious illness?”

The EEA requests that EU Member States do more to inform citizens about the risks of EMF exposure, especially to children

The European Environment Agency EEA. 2020: “The European Environment Agency (EEA) has long advocated precaution concerning EMF exposure, pointing out that there were cases of failure to use the precautionary principle in the past, which have resulted in often irreversible damage to human health and environments. Appropriate, precautionary and proportionate actions taken now to avoid plausible and potentially serious threats to health from EMF are likely to be seen as prudent and wise from future perspectives. The EEA requests that EU Member States do more to inform citizens about the risks of EMF exposure, especially to children.
