Wireless Education: Free Open Discussion on the Safety of Our Children's Exposure to Wireless Radiation in School

  • Shrewsbury Public Library 609 Main Street Shrewsbury, MA (map)

Schools today use high-density mesh Wi-Fi networks which can create more intense microwave radiation exposures. This exposure to constantly-emitting microwave transmitters has scientifically documented health impacts that many parents and educators are unaware of. Learn more about what possible health risks children face when they are constantly exposed to wireless radiation throughout the day at school from mesh wireless networks.

Free admission, reservations are welcomed:

Speakers include:

  • Ronald Melnick, Ph.D., Former Toxicologist of National Institute of Health (NIH), Senior Science Advisor, Environmental Health Trust

  • Dr. Martha Herbert, Assistant Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School

  • Dr. David O. Carpenter, Public Health Physician and Director of the Institute for Health and the Environment, a Collaborating Center of the World Health Organization

  • Frank Clegg, CEO of Canadians for Safe Technology and former long-time president of Microsoft Canada

  • Theodora Scarato, MSW, Executive Director, Environmental Health Trust

  • Cecelia Doucette, MTPW, Technology Safety Educator

Topics to be discussed:

  • Why school mesh wireless networks are especially dangerous - see actual radiation measurement from local schools

  • The advice given by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health for schools - does your child’s school know the facts that can protect your children?

  • Studies that reveal the health risks involved with constant exposures to microwave emitting technologies including the most recent report from the US showing clear evidence of cancer

  • Health risks associated with devices including damage to the brain and reproductive organs

  • Common early-onset symptoms of microwave sickness including fatigue, headaches, tinnitus (ear ringing/pain), chest pain, nosebleeds, nausea, behavior issues, anxiety, depression and more

  • What your school can do to protect students and staff by using technology in a safer way -- including recommendations in the manufacturers’ own fine print warnings

“Children are more vulnerable to electromagnetic fields of radiation (EMFs) so it’s important to minimize their exposures,” Wireless Education Technology Safety Educator Cecelia Doucette, MTPW, said. “We want to break down the facts and start the conversation with parents and educators in our communities to reduce our children’s exposure to this high volume of microwave radiation that’s happening right in their classrooms.”
