Reassessment of Exposure to Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields Limits and Policies (Docket No. FCC-2013-0204)
According to Apple’s product information guide, iPads can emit even more radiation than cell phones.http://manuals.info.apple.com/MANUALS/1000/MA1524/en_US/iPad_Important_Product_Information_Guide.pdf Also, the scientific literature clearly shows that children absorb more radiation than adults.http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21999884
According to the scientific evidence itself, in our opinion, it would be reasonable to state that children who use iPads for long periods of time are likely to have a significantly increased risk of developing cancer. Equally worrying is that in my opinion, children may actually suffer severe reproductive harm. So what kind of risk are we talking about? Isn’t that really the question? According to high quality independently funded research by Dr. Lennart Hardell of Sweden:
For every 100 hours of cellphone use, the risk of brain cancer increases by 5%.
So how many hours would children in Fullerton schools be exposed?
175 days x 6 hours = 875 hours per year.
That means after each year of exposure to these wireless devices there would be a 44% increased risk of brain cancer.
After 13 years, this comes to a 572% increased risk of cancer, for adults that is. For children, the increased risk would be much more, as research shows that they have at least double the risk of adults.
So according to these calculations, children would have an 1100% increased risk of brain cancer as a result of using an iPad at school. This does not include time spent doing homework or other extraneous activities. WiFi enabled devices such as tablets and laptops in the classroom possibly emit as much or more high frequency pulse modulated microwave radiation as a cell phone and they are in direct proximity to the children’s sensitive developing reproductive areas.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, PLEASE READ THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THE LINK BELOW FROM THE LARGEST TRIAL BAR IN THE WORLD AS THEY WEIGH IN ON THE FCC’S RF EXPOSURE GUIDELINES.
FOLKS WE ARE TALKING ABOUT OUR CHILDREN HERE. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT OUR FUTURE. LET’S SHOW THAT WE CARE AND NOT JUST ACT LIKE IT.
Wireless Microwave Radiation and American Hyperopia: the smoke and mirrors of a false dichotomy in the making.
In the not so distant future, the unmitigated public health disaster in the making directly resulting from the wireless microwave radiation bombardment of human populations and the resultant environmental and human tragedy EMF issue will all be blamed on Fukushima. Just watch the talking heads on the idiot box begin to lay out the biggest red herring in human history with a twinkle in their eyes deeply recessed into their teleprompter reading face lifted mugs. Ladies and gentlemen you and your children are being had in a big bad way. Read the rest of this entry »
THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. THE NON THERMAL EFFECTS OF PULSE MODULATED MICROWAVE RADIATION HAVE BEEN KNOWN FOR LONGER THAN MANY OF US HAVE BEEN ALIVE. DO YOU THINK THAT THEY GOT IT ALL FIGURED OUT 46 YEARS LATER? WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW, MAY BE HARMING YOUR CHILDREN.
THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE IS A VERY INTERESTING READ TO SAY THE LEAST. JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT THINGS COULDN’T GET ANY STRANGER, THEY DO. STICK AROUND AND SEE WHAT WE AT THE FULLERTON INFORMER HAVE IN STORE.
Oh yes, and non thermal effects of pulse modulated high frequency microwave radiation are just merely figments of our imaginations:
On March 5, 2013, The Fullerton Informer began the quest to end what we believe to be the largest forced irradiation of school children that the world has ever known. Since that date we have logged close to 3 million hits from all over the world. We are by no means alone ladies and gentlemen.
Yes it all began as a result of an email from the Fullerton School District’s acting superintendent Dr. Robert Pletka. I was previously involved with his office as a result of an investigation into my allegations of mistreatment of my son over at Acacia Elementary which directly involved principal Karen Whisnant and my son’s teacher Stephanie Givens. With the help of Trustee Chris Thompson, my wife and I arranged a meeting with Dr. Pletka to address my concerns. There was a subsequent investigation and upon conclusion of such, Dr. Pletka stated that he continued to believe that our concerns were real and he would take appropriate steps. The subsequent actions taken by the district were not made public but problems had ceased in the interim. It was’t long after that however, that they began again, remained ongoing, and ironically in my opinion, they still continue to this day. Stephanie Givens was awarded teacher of the year. The OC Register awarded Acacia Elementary the title of the number one school in Orange County and the smoke and mirrors hid this bizarre irony for many.

The RF Industry gets what it pays for. Will your children end up paying for what they get in the FSD’s and the FJUHSD’s wireless classrooms?
Yes the R.’s have it but not for much longer. You know folks, I believe that the Fullerton School District parents and children deserve better than R. Schulze, the F.S.D.’s self proclaimed “attack dog of truth” in this fight, R. Pletka, the F.S.D.’s superintendent and what we believe to be his misleading safety assurances, and of course the slick moves of R. Craven, the soon to be ex F.S.D. technology director.
What we believe is on the line are your children’s reproductive and physical health, cognitive function and critical thinking skills’ development in that order.
There are clearly two sides to this debate. On one side it involves an entrenched trillion dollar industry involving companies like APPLE, CISCO, and GOOGLE with orders from The Executive Branch to roll this out, along with servile school administrators and staff who appear to be unable to wrap their arms around the other side of the story or simply refuse to expose themselves to it. On the other side of the aisle are thousands of peer reviewed articles and the scientists behind them, flanked by parents that simply see the forest for the trees, sound the alarm and say no. So the ten thousand dollar question is why do the teachers, board members, administrators, staff, PTA and foundations all appear to have blindfolds on and earplugs in? We now begin to peel back the layers of the proverbial onion for you.
This just came in from Ray, one of our commenters that dares to care and dares to tell it like it is. With his logging thousands of hours of research on this issue spanning over 20 years, and his flagship website WIFI IN SCHOOLS.COM , he writes:
“Parents deserve quality information, not heavily biased industry-influenced reporting from a hack website. For the past several months we’ve been reading post after post by this R. Schulze individual. He’s been providing links to scientific reports claiming that EMR radiation is not a health issue.
Schulze has consistently refused to acknowledge any and all scientific evidence that reports EMR radiation to be harmful. He just pretends that it doesn’t exist, and instead refers us to links provided by a website called “EMF and Health”. This site is blatantly biased, and promotes a denialist perspective.
Well I did some digging on this website and learned founded by an electronics tycoon by the name of Lorne Trottier.
Trottier, who has deep ties to the wireless industry, financed an operation to public deny the hazards of EMR radiation and the validity of electro-sensitivity. He hired 60 academics, mostly from McGill University and Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal, to which he has donated tens of millions of dollars.
Another of EMF and Health’s contributors is Michel Plante, a consultant for Hydro Quebec, one of the largest electrical utilities in Canada.
Joe Schwarz of EMF and Health is also a known industry shill who not only defends the safety of EMF, but also the safety of Aspartame, pesticides, and GMO, etc, for companies the like of Monsanto. Schwartz is also the Director of McGill University’s Office for Science and Society, which is “dedicated to demystifying science for the public”, and which receives millions in funding from the Lorne Trottier family trust.
Parents deserve to have high quality scientific information and should be warned that the pro-EMF site Schulze has been referring to is anything but independent science.”
DON’T BANK YOUR FAMILY’S LINEAGE AND YOUR CHILDREN’S HEALTH ON EMPTY PROMISES BY THOSE WHO WILL LONG SINCE BE RETIRED IF IT TURNS OUT THAT WE WERE RIGHT ALL ALONG. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE ALL HAVE SKIN IN THIS GAME, AND THE REASON WE AT THE FULLERTON INFORMER DO IS SO THAT YOUR CHILDREN WON’T.
GET INFORMED AND GET INVOLVED.
WHAT ABOUT THE KIDS? THE FCC’S WIRELESS RADIATION EXPOSURE GUIDELINES IGNORE AN ENTIRE REALM OF EFFECTS: THE NON-THERMAL EFFECTS.
WELL I GUESS IT DEPENDS ON WHO YOU ASK NOW DOESN’T IT?
DOES THE EPA’S OWN SCIENTIST AGREE? http://thefullertoninformer.
I beleive that FSD’s very own Robert Pletka’s wireless classroom safety assurance: http://fsd.k12.ca.us/parent_resources/files/wireless.pdf is a house of cards ladies and gentlemen.
Lets not forget what is keeping them up at night, and maybe even you too as studies have shown that invisible microwave electromagnetic radiation from WiFi, laptops, tablets and cell phones inhibit the production of a hormone called melatonin. Melatonin is produced by the pineal gland in the brain and one of its primary functions is to regulate our sleep cycle. When inadequate amounts of melatonin are produced our sleep cycle is compromised.
Why is this important? If you don’t get into the deeper phases of the sleep cycle at night the body cannot repair itself. Cells aren’t rejuvenated. Sleep is necessary for growth as well this repair process to occur and we all need it, especially our children.
Here is a letter from a local parent sent to all governing authorities involved in this issue:
I am a Southern California mother of three and have a child in a school that is implementing one to one technology in the classroom. It was not until I stumbled upon information regarding wireless radiation that I became aware of the extremely critical health implications of such an environment in which 30+ wireless devices, operating 6 hours/day, 180 days/year for a child’s school career, are emitting an unprecedented amount of radiation on our children. In the process, I discovered a bottomless pit of studies and information that attest to the harms of wireless radiation.
The parents do not know that they are sending their children into an environment, surrounded by a Class 2b Carcinogen, classified as such by the World Health Organization. That is the same classification as lead, DDT, and engine exhaust. In what context would a classroom filled with engine exhaust ever be okay? The parents do not know that medical doctors, scientists, and researchers are identifying the following wireless radiation health effects: ADHD, autism, infertility, DNA damage to human sperm, childhood leukemia, neurological and cardiovascular problems, cognitive disfunction, pain, fatigue, mood disorders, dizziness, nausea, weakness, and skin problems. The question is: what is this wireless radiation doing to the human eggs in our daughters? Additionally, many of these health problems are not immediately evident and manifest themselves years after exposure, which makes everyone think that there are no harms from these emissions. The parents do not know that research into wireless radiation has been going on for decades and has yielded thousands of studies indicating harm: http://www.justproveit.net/content/prove-it-initiative-main
The parents do not know that something that they cannot see, hear, touch, smell or taste is a danger to their children. The parents do not know the numerous websites that have cropped up addressing just the subject of wireless classrooms:
WiFi In Schools, United States
WiFi In Schools, United Kingdom
WiFi In Schools, Australia
Citizens 4 Safe Technology
Center For Safer Wireless
Safe In School
School Radiation Dot Com
The time is past due for the FCC to acknowledge the dangers of wireless radiation. Wireless technology has an implied safety that is dangerous and not justified. People, if they were aware of this information, would feel that there is immediate need for the FCC to step in and re-establish guidelines to ensure the public health.
The general population will begin finding out the following facts about the FCC’s role in allowing the unfettered proliferation of wireless radiation on our children and loved ones:
1) The FCC guidelines were last updated in 1996; that was 17 years ago. Why is that?
2) The FCC guidelines are based on thermal exposure and completely ignore non-thermal biological effects. Why is that? Non- thermal effects are the concern with wireless radiation.
3) No long-term studies have been funded on the non-thermal effects of wireless radiation. Why is that?
4) FCC current exposure guidelines allow for hundreds of trillions of times more exposure than our parents were exposed to as children. Why is that?
Parents are unknowingly sending their children back to school this Fall into classrooms filled with wireless radiation and there is no choice in the matter. These decisions are being made for the parents. School districts, when confronted with the harms of wireless classrooms, ignore or discount it because it conflicts with their one to one technology plans. They stand on the FCC’s guidelines and tech industry funded studies as reason for safety and are dismissive of parents raising concerns. Wired technology is known to be safe and a healthy choice for our children. Why take the risk with our children’s health with wireless?
Parents and the general public are trusting in the FCC to be taking care of this and, clearly, with 1996 guidelines, that is not the case. In the schools, knowledgeable parents are caught between administrators who falsely proclaim wireless radiation as “totally safe”, that there is no “absolute proof” of the harms of wireless radiation, resting on outdated FCC guidelines, and, what is now, decades of research that says it is not.
Please consider the application of the Precautionary Principle, as stated by Joel Moskowitz, Ph.D., Director, Center for Family and Community Health, University of California, Berkeley, in a letter dated February 8, 2013, to the Los Angeles Unified School District writes: “The precautionary principle should be applied to this critical policy decision. This principle, developed at a U.N. environmental conference in 1992 states that in the absence of scientific consensus if an action has a suspected risk of causing harm, the burden of proof it is not harmful falls on those taking the action, and all reasonable measures to reduce the risk must be taken.” Our school children should not be in classrooms with wireless radiation until it can be proved that it is safe.
The urgency of this matter cannot be overstated. The health issues of wireless radiation are not going away. Many of these issues, such as dramatic growth rates of autism diagnosis and ADHD, are unaccounted for. The causes have not been identified. Our rate in Orange County CA is now 1 in 63. The FCC has a tremendous responsibility and a great opportunity to step forward and do the right thing. Please, incorporate the Precautionary Principle in the FCC guidelines, now, and call a halt to wireless radiation in our classrooms until it can be proven safe.
Finally, what does it say about us if we, as human beings, do not ensure the safety of our most vulnerable, our children?
