NEWMARKET, ON, Nov. 23, 2011 /CNW/ - Parents in York Region will remove
their children from school today and picket their School Board, to
protest against exposure to radiation from Wifi.
"This is proven to be harmful to children," said organizer Lynnette
Haralampopolous. "It is wrong to force mandatory exposure to microwave
radiation on children."
Radiation from WiFi and other wireless devices is a "possible
carcinogen" according to the World Health Organization. In May the
W.H.O. placed microwaves on the same cancer watch-list as DDT, lead,
and car exhaust.
Some Canadian private schools and one public school Board have removed
WiFi, but York Region and some other Boards continue to use it.
Parents will picket the York Region School Board offices from 10 am to
