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 Wi-Fi 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 Committee, 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.
