Wireless technology is largely seen as benevolent and kind. Any danger to our health is typically passed off to the next generation to figure out, regardless of the consequences that have happened already. This story has played out many times in the past, whether it be DDT, cigarettes, or leaded paint. However, as Wifi proliferates throughout our schools with potential dangers for our children’s health, some are courageous enough to fight back against this under-studied science.
Rodney Palmer, an award-winning Canadian journalist and Communications Advisor at the Safe School Comittee, has been speaking out about the dangers of Wifi in public schools since at least 2010. In a presentation to the Royal Society of Canada, he spoke about a wifi disaster at a public elementary school that injured dozens of students. The story is quite remarkable.
“When the schools installed the wifi, we found out that at least four children had erratic tachycardia [fast or irregular heart rate] that confounded their doctors and they were wearing heart monitors to school. The older children…told us they had blackouts in certain areas of the school.” – Rodney Palmer
Do children have a particularly low resistance to wireless radiation? According to Rodney Palmer, many school-aged children report a negative reaction from exposure to Wifi since its introduction to public schools. These children cite headaches, irregular heart rate, and blackouts as potential reactions to the technology.
“Anyone could make the argument that you could safely spray any amount of pesticide on any person for any amount of time, although that once thought to be okay, and that’s the current government thinking with microwave radiation.” – Rodney Palmer
