But hey, lets ban it anyway. I wonder how many of those parents also have Wifi at home? Or use a cell phone? Or live near a cell tower? Smoke near their kids?"I'm not saying it's because of the Wi-Fi because we don't know yet, but I've pretty much eliminated every other possible source."
Jake, as you are a moderator I find your post disappionting. Yes you have a right to express any opinion you want. But as someone who is supposed to value and encourage balance and fairness you are not leading by example.Stale or bad air is the most likely culprit. Investigate there first. The groups conclusion should be ignored though. Unless they have EE and biomedical experts doing independent and peer reviewed research.
That is an extremely valid and very scientific approach. Using the same method of elimination (and a few trillion dollars of research), scientists have concluded that it must be human activity that should be blamed for global "climate change", and many more trillions of dollars are needed to continue research and fix it. Same here - in this particular case, if there's money to be made by pointing a finger at WiFi, we won't see the end of it.I guess they eliminated every other possible cause of these symptoms at the school - water, gasses, paint, carpet glues, teachers....
I'm sorry, this is so typical of overprotective parents. I used to be a teacher for 20 years... and I see this type of pattern recurring for those 20 years of my teaching days.I have to agree that it seems highly unlikely that its the wi-fi. But then you would think the kids themselves would be telling their parents the same thing and getting them to back off.
My piont is these parents have probably gone through hell just to gain the little ground they did. 14 schools is a lot of schools. Speak to me logically. Why do they hold no credibility in your eyes? What is it based on? Do you honestly think these are some local chapter of EMADAT trying to sow some mischief? (Evil MomAndDadsAgainstTechnology)
These kids are feeling sick Have any of you ever felt sick? Have you ever been a kid?
It's the children that matter.
A big part of the problem is "microwave". If they'd said "radio" instead, there'd be no problem, even when talking about the exact same system. The same thing happens if you use the word "radiation". People get all hung up on the label, without understanding what it represents. They also seem to be unaware that we're bathed in radiation, from a wide variety of natural sources, and have been since day 1.I'm sorry, this is so typical of overprotective parents
