Aurora School Removes Wifi to Protect Children's Health

AURORA, ON, Jan. 19, 2012 /CNW/ - Another school has removed its Wifi, following warnings that the system emits potentially harmful microwave radiation.

"Schools are in the business of helping children, not hurting them so we shouldn't be taking chances," said Brenda Glashan, principal of the Aurora Montessori School, a private elementary school of 350 students north of Toronto.

Last May the World Health Organization warned that radiation from WiFi, cell phones and other wireless devices may cause cancer. Researchers have since reported that WiFi from laptop computers causes damage to human sperm.

Several Ontario private schools have since removed their wifi systems, but many public schools continue to install them despite the health warnings.

Aurora Montessori school is known for its advanced computer lab, and now hardwires all of its internet connections.
