Medical experts – including the American Academy of Pediatrics – have warned that children are more vulnerable to exposure. Risks include cancer, reduced immunity, “Microwave Sickness”, and much more.
Action has already been taken worldwide to replace WiFi in schools with hard-wired Ethernet connections which are safer and more secure. In Cyprus, they are doing even more to keep kids safe. Is this happening where you live?
President of the Cyprus National Committee on Environment and Children’s Health Dr. Michaelifou has helped her country achieve what many of us dream of — science-based awareness of how protect our children from the health impacts of environmental pollutants, including wireless radiation exposure. The Cyprus National Committee on Environment and Children’s Health worked with medical associations, government agencies, and public advocacy groups and achieved great successes:
- Provided guidance on removing Wi-Fi from elementary schools.
- Supported a pilot project to remove Wi-Fi from the intensive care units of the pediatric wards of Archbishop Makarios III Hospital.
- Launched a large-scale public awareness campaign on how to reduce cell phones and wireless radiation.
- Provided guidance on how to hardwire computers for distance learning.
