Here is a letter from the F.S.D. to the Fullerton Informer site administrator:
The F.S.D. claims that the classroom microwave EMF emissions are legal. They also refuse to grant us access to film and record our own measurements. We at The Fullerton Informer believe that the microwave EMF emissions present in the classrooms, that the district claims are well below the FCC limits, are not safe. We, by the way, are not alone with respect to our position:
The current FCC standards that the FSD is hiding behind are based on thermal (heating) effects of these microwave EMF emissions. The widely held view in the scientific community is with the dangers of the NON-THERMAL interactions and effects on children at the cellular and molecular level that have been clearly demonstrated in the medical literature to be real. Therefore, we believe that the FCC guidelines are woefully inadequate, antiquated and allow students to be subjected to, what we believe to be, dangerous levels of microwave EMF radiation in the classrooms as a result of the use of these WiFi enabled devices and the networks’ industrial strength routers that can potentially result in long term health effects. We believe that chronic exposure to these emissions is potentially very dangerous. Our position is to hard wire the technology in the classrooms as well as in your homes. By forcing the use of WiFi enabled tablets in the classroom, the Fullerton School District is then forcing the students and their families to operate and maintain a wireless environment in their homes so the students can do their homework on the wireless devices. Now even many of the after school day care facilities that serve the Fullerton students are considering installing wireless networks so that the students can do their homework on their tablets while in their custody before and after school. I believe that the willful ignorance of this information by the F.S.D, its Board of Trustees and its employees is not in the best interests of the students or even the community at large. The ramifications of their decisions have far reaching unintended consequences that we can no longer ignore.
This bears repeating, the wireless setting that the F.S.D. is forcing the existence of in the home, in the classrooms, and indirectly in day care facilities, is in our opinion, not safe for children, and especially for pregnant women or anyone else for that matter. The whole basis for this technology being safe is based on current FCC standards that completely IGNORE an entire realm of non-thermal physiological effects and the associated non-thermal mechanisms by which they take place. That is what we call uncharted territory folks. Most Fullerton students are there now and even more will be next year.
So all of the aforementioned begs the question.
We at the Fullerton Informer have been trying to get the Board’s and the administration’s attention on these potential dangers facing our children for months.
Why does it appear that the F.S.D just doesn’t get it?
SEEDS NOT EXPOSED TO WIFI
SEEDS EXPOSED TO WIFI
Sure WiFi is safe for growing children, just not for growing seeds.
I believe that a public health crisis is in the process of unfolding right before our very own eyes with 1 in 5 children now being diagnosed with a mental illness: CDC-1 in 5 children suffer from a mental disorder.
We all want what is best for our children. As parents, we all want the best tools for learning, the best schools, the best teachers, and the best curriculum so that our children have a chance at a bright future in an extremely competitive world. There is no doubt about the need for technology. It is here to stay. It is because of it that you are reading this. But why does it all have to be wireless? What about the health and safety concerns as they relate to our children? Could these emissions be harming our children? What is wrong with wires connected to computers? That is our contention: hard wire the devices in light of the recent L.A.U.S.D EXPERT TESTIMONY and the recent letter sent to the Fullerton School District Board of Trustees on 5-13-13 that all strongly suggest that WiFi is not safe for children in a room full of wireless transmitters (tablets).
We at the FullertonInformer.com submit to you that we must delay the roll out of these wireless classrooms as the health concerns continue to mount. There needs to be designated classrooms at each grade level that have the technology hard wired for parents that choose NOT to subject their children to these emissions coming from the routers and the devices. The convenience is simply not worth the risk to our children. Are you willing to take that chance? I believe we simply cannot afford to especially when it is totally unnecessary. We have fiber optic connectivity right to the classroom walls. Why does it have to stop there?
Our good friends over at http://www.wifiinschools.com/ shared the following link to a story of a remarkable group of 9th graders in Denmark, with no formal medical training, who with about 5 bucks produced a priceless experiment:
Parents, look for yourselves and get a load of what two WiFi routers do to a bunch of poor little innocent seeds that were simply sitting too close to a pair of friendly WiFi routers. Poor things-they were just trying to grow up and make it in life. What is all of this 21st Century learning nonsense gonna do to all of yours? So which children will be getting the best seat in the house closest to the Cisco Aironet enterprise class WiFi routers in Fullerton’s new wireless classrooms that stay on all day long and have perfect attendance 180 days a year? Hey gang, I am just the messenger and yes this experiment was peer reviewed- by the whole 9th grade class.
FOR MORE INFORMATION, THE FOLLOWING WEBSITE: http://www.wifiinschools.com/ IS A TREMENDOUS RESOURCE FOR PARENTS, EDUCATORS AND STUDENTS WHO HAVE SERIOUS CONCERNS OR QUESTIONS ABOUT THE SAFETY OF THE NEW PROPOSED CLASSROOM APPLICATIONS OF THIS TECHNOLOGY. IT HAS A WIDE ARRAY OF INFORMATIVE VIDEOS AND EXPERT TESTIMONY ON THE DANGERS OF WIFI IN SCHOOLS.
THIS CAME IN THIS MORNING FROM SOMEONE WHO WISHES TO REMAIN ANONYMOUS AND WHO HAS ASKED ME TO FORWARD THIS INFORMATION. SHE HAS FOLLOWED WHAT IS PRESENTED ON THIS BLOG AND DISTILLED THIS DOWN FOR YOU–
I Believe There Is A Link Between EMF Exposure and Autism.
The autism rate continues to grow. As of yet, the cause of this brain disorder REMAINS unknown.
I believe that EMF (Electro Magnetic Frequency) emissions from devices such as wireless computers, cell phones, tablets, cordless phones, wifi routers, wireless gaming controllers are damaging to the brain of developing fetus.
We have all seen what happens when a piece of metal foil or fork is accidentally left in the microwave. The microwaves hitting the metal creates an electrical discharge on the item.
Our bodies contain metals and when the EMF hits our bodies, it impacts our bodies, and if we are pregnant the fetus is also impacted. We believe that Carbonyl Iron, if taken as a prenatal vitamin, may provide a buffer to EMF exposure and can possibly prevent the incidence of autism.
There are two things that I believe that you can do to assist in the delivery of a healthy child:
1) Take prenatal vitamins containing Carbonyl Iron while pregnant or
2) Do your best to eliminate exposure to EMF emissions if not possible, be aware of possible EMF exposure in your surroundings and try to limit it. Hard wire your electronic devices.
The unexplained climbing rate of autism along with the expansion of EMF emissions and WiFi in our surroundings is very alarming. We believe the cause of autism to triggered by EMF exposure and are passing this information on.

Here is a letter to The F.S.D. from a group of physicians: mail-attachment… (2)
You know just because the classroom microwave emissions are legal doesn’t mean that they are safe for our children.
The Fullerton School District Board of Trustees needs to stop hiding behind the outdated FCC guidelines that were based on thermal exposures established decades ago on marine infantry soldier type mannequins when non thermal dangers are an entirely different threat that we worry is potentially facing the children.

Acacia School’s BYOD Informational Meeting
Hot off the press…
For all 2013 -2014 5th & 6th grade families
Acacia Bring Your Own iPad Program
is expanding for the next school year!!
Please attend an important Informational Night to learn more about your
child’s participation in next school year’s BYOD program.
Monday, May 13th
Acacia School Multipurpose Room
*Please note that all parents need to attend a BYOD Info night prior to their
child participating in the program.*
Folks it has been two months since we began this mission to inform and educate staff and parents. I have attended and spoken at school board meetings, handed out flyers, and sent mass emails to district staff, and set up this blog that links to many of the dangers of wireless classrooms. We provided information that is well documented. What do we get for our anniversary?
AN INVITATION FOR MORE RADIATION.
So what gives with the cold shoulder for the last 2 months? Why does it appear that the entire administration is ignoring me, this blog and this information. Why does the administration not answer my requests to film and take EMF measurements in the classrooms?
• Be informed about the above rights to participate in the education of their children.
I submit to you. ladies and gentlemen, that the children’s safety comes first.
This came in to me last night from a concerned mother who has been watching on the sidelines and who has read up on this issue. I felt compelled to share this, as the sentiment contained here is shared by many who are now gaining the courage to speak on this issue.
We all care about our fellow human, that is certain. There are
so many good folks out there working tirelessly to do good
for the community. We are busy raising money through galas,
fund raisers, and reaching out for corporate sponsorships.
Everyone is saying “yes” we want to participate and help.
Our purpose is good . . . . . or IS it?
The FSD has in their plans an enormous expansion of WiFi-
enabled devices, one for each child’s hands. FSD believes
they are doing the best for the children, and the school and
community have gotten together to make this happen. Their
intentions are good.
But, what if FSD would actually look at the research and
studies that continue to grow. Even easier, just read the
letters from the following individuals and institutions
Dr. Martha Herbert, Ph. D, M.D., Assistant Professor,
Pediatric Neurology, Harvard Medical School,
Massachusetts General Hospital.
American Academy of Environmental Medicine
Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons,
Department of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics
Dr. Magda Havas, B.Sc., Ph.D., Environmental & Resource
Studies, Trent University, ON, Canada
Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience,
Joel Moscowitz, Ph. D, Director of Center for Family and
Community Health, University of California, Berkeley
Devra Davis, Ph.D. MPH, Environmental Health Trust
Antoinette Stein, Ph.D., Environmental Health Trust
Mary Beth Brangan, Co-director, Ecological Options
Please keep in mind that this is only a partial list.
Each of these researchers and institutions is saying the
same thing: opt for wired technologies. The ones who
have studied the effects of wifi are in a position to make this
statement. The effects of WiFi in schools IS HARMFUL.
It is truly amazing what we can do when we set our minds
to it. But, what if we find out in the process that, while our
intentions were good, the fruits of our labor are harmful to the
children? This is the case, FSD.
This is the information we are trying to get FSD to sit down
and look at. It is not complicated stuff. The research does,
however, make very clear that the FSD wifi technology plans
are harmful to our kids.
You have been silent too long, FSD. It is time to do the
responsible thing and look at this information. Make evident
that your concern and care for our children outweighs a
commitment to the wrong road.
