COLLINGWOOD, ON, Sept. 8, 2011 /CNW/ - An Ontario school has torn out
its WiFi and replaced it with a hard-wired internet system to ensure
the safety of students.
"This system turns regular electrical outlets into high-speed internet
ports. It's faster than wireless, and we have no question regarding
safety." said Roberta Murray-Hirst, Principal of Pretty River Academy,
a private school (K-12) with 150 students.
In May the World Health Organization warned that radio frequency
radiation from WiFi, cell phones and other wireless devices is now
considered a "Possible Carcinogen" and placed it on the same list as
DDT, lead, and car exhaust.
Pretty River Academy is located in Collingwood north of Toronto. In
neighbouring public schools some children have complained of health
problems after commercial grade microwave transmitters were installed
for internet connection.
