I'm glad to see some reporting on the biological effects on individuals especially students in school. There is substantial evidence of serious harm from radiation emanating from routers and other devices; business appears only interested in marketing these devices for schools but has been negligent as far as safety or even educational value.
Currently, there is a ballot initiative (current petition 15-33) to create an expert commission to evaluate and address health and safety risks--this needs support to move forward (see www.meetup.com/healove). The site had additional materials available to help address the issue.
Thank you, Mr. Spero and Ms. Rees for this article! Ashland Public Schools has adopted Best Practices for Mobile Devices to start putting distance between students/staff and the devices/routers/access points in our schools. Senator Karen Spilka has introduced MA S.1222: An Act creating a special commission to study the health impacts of electromagnetic fields. While it may take a while for an outcome from the State, there is much you can do to keep your loved ones safe right now as Ms. Rees explains. I have taken those precautions myself in our home to limit radiation exposure. Those wishing to know more are welcome to look at the in-depth research I've gathered: https://sites.google.com/site/understandingemfs/home. Thank you!
