Biological Impacts on Children:

Reactions Worse than Adults

     Children are subject to Ringing Ears, Sleeplessness, Headaches, Increased Irritability, and/or Impaired Ability to Concentrate both in school and outside the classroom.  Children in school are now exposed to radiation from their own cellphones and/or WiFi enabled devices and that emitted from those of other students in the classroom and surrounding rooms which gives them no control over their total exposure.


     Children are also much more likely to be negatively affected by RF energy because their skulls are thinner, their brain & body tissue has more moisture than that of grown-ups and their cells are dividing more quickly as they are growing.  Dr. Martha R Herbert, Phd, MD, who reviewed literature pertaining to links between Autism and EMFs/RF for the Bioinitiative Report, urges school systems to do the right and precautionary thing for our children by employing wired instead of wireless connections in the classroom.

"EMF/RFR from wifi and cell towers can exert a disorganizing effect on the ability to learn and remember, and can also be destabilizing to immune and metabolic function.  This will make it harder for some children to learn, particularly those who are already having problems in the first place."


"Powerful industrial entities have a vested interest in leading the public to believe that EMF/RFR, which we cannot see, taste or touch, isharmless, but this is not true." [383]


     The banning or curtailment of WiFi in nurseries and schools is detailed in the section

on Wi-Fi's effects on children.  Babies and growing fetuses are even more vulnerable than growing children to the effects of close proximity to cellular, Wi-Fi and other personal wireless devices. [385]  Scientific studies and other info on protecting the very young are at [386].  Dr. Klinghardt recommends pregnant mothers sleep in a protected space if home emf levels are high and especially if the radiation is pulsed as it is from smart meters and from cell phones and towers.  A baby will develop neurological symptoms in the first two years of life, in particular, autism, the incidence of which has increased 60 fold since the 70s.  A baby so exposed will have permanent protein damage 100 times greater than a similarly exposed adult.  His study correlating the extraordinary increase in autism to the rapid increase in near-microwave emf could not be published due to interests within academia & the scientific community who are much more powerful than even the pharmaceutical industry. [387]

     The American Academy of Pediatrics, with over 60,000 members, wrote to the FCC regarding wireless exposure involving children in 2012. [390] 


Why children absorb more microwave radiation than adults:  The consequences

A review of studies of damning evidence of MWR (Micro Wave Radiation) impacts on children, on fetuses and on sperm based on how cell phones, cordless phones and Wi Fi devices are actually used instead of the recommended use warnings printed in many an owner's manual. 

BRAGG® Antenna Ranking of Schools

A Survey of Schools Exposed to Radio Frequency Radiation in Capitol Cities

Many thanks to Patricia Burke for compiling a report on how many antennas are near each of our Worcester schools.  Such info is publicly available to anyone wanting to know how many antennas are near their home, work or any other address.
See to zoom in and to get more info on owners, tower heights and distances from your address.  Antennas less than 1/4 mile away are of greater concern because their radio waves can be strong enough to cause immediate effects or else cause cancer with sustained longer term exposure.  Her report is here:

Mobile Phones Can Cause Cancer

An Overview by Mike Adams of

Smart Meters use similar wavelengths as cell phones, are 10 times more powerful than cell phones and come on or stay on all hours of the day & night.

Study commissioned by T Mobile 15 years ago:

30 minutes a day cell phone use for 10 years increase Glioma (brain cancers) by 40%

Several other ill effects and studies are cited in the NaturalNews article.

Brings up the World Health Organization's classification of radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation as Class IIB, Possibly Carcinogenic, back in 2011.
