The parents of students attending an elementary school in Illinois are suing the school system for installing a wireless network.
According to the complaint, the district, its board and its superintendent have implemented Wi-Fi wireless networking technology in classrooms, ignoring evidence that electromagnetic radiation from Wi-Fi networks poses health risks, particularly to growing children.
A few years back there was a lot in the news alleging the use of cellular phones causes brain cancer, although several studies produced inconclusive and conflicting results. WiFi is a different technology, however, (for one thing you don’t hold the devices up to your head) and I haven’t heard of any health issues associated with it. Other than having wireless points just about everywhere I go encourages me to spend waaaay too much time online. :-)
