TORONTO, Feb. 13, 2012 /CNW/ - A union representing 45,000 Ontario
teachers is warning against WiFi in the classroom.
The Ontario English Catholic Teacher's Association studied the effects
of microwave radiation from WiFi, and has published a report stating
that classroom computers should only be hardwired.
The union's provincial Health and Safety Committee recognized research
that shows up to one million Canadians may have "severe and immediate"
reactions to WiFi. That's three percent of the population. The symptoms
can range from headaches to heart palpitations, including speeding
The report suggests all new schools should be hardwired only, and WiFi
should not be installed in any more classrooms.
The union represents teachers at more than fourteen hundred Ontario
