Does your school ban wifi? I thought not.

Wi-Fi should be banned in schools

Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe, one of the UK’s few professional advisers on medical conditions related to radio frequency (RF) radiation and other electromagnetic fields (EMFs), believes everyone should follow France’s lead and ban Wi-Fi in nurseries and primary schools.

She gave up both a successful career in emergency medicine and the use of wireless devices after reviewing the literature on the health risks associated with EMFs.

RF’s are classed as a Group 2B carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). Mallery-Blythe is now focused on radiation emitted by Wi-Fi, mobiles and other wireless devices, and is “among a not insignificant number of scientists and practitioners concerned by those studies that do highlight cause for more precaution.”

If you think it’s not serious you’d expect that insurance companies wouldn’t care, right?

In February 2015, injuries “resulting from or contributed to by electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic radiation, electromagnetism, radio waves or noise” were excluded by insurers Lloyd’s of London. This puts the responsibility squarely back on the school’s shoulders, making them liable.
