Petition Background

Remember the old commercial:
Tell two people who tell two people who tell two people and so on ....
We must influence change and demonstrate that it is the people that have the power! Our children's health and safety are at stake. You will not see this issue discussed in mainstream media, we need to push this very relevant conversation in the direction of our elected officials. With your help we can make a change!
THE POWER OF COMMUNITY!
The microwave radiation from wireless devices has never been safety tested on children. The current regulations for the amount of radiation that children can be exposed to was set by the US army and was based on keeping recruits safe from short term exposure. Current guidelines are based on the premise that the microwave radiation is safe so long as it does not heat an average sized army recruit [6ft 1inch tall. 210 lbs] more than one degree centigrade in 6 minutes. Safety limits have not been adjusted for density/body weight of children.
In addition to ZERO studies on the safety of long term microwave radiation exposure on children, there are also no studies on the compounded impact of metal/microwave radiation [braces, under wire bras]. According to Health Canada there are studies showing that microwave radiation reflects and is absorbed by metal. The World Health Organization has classified Wifi and like Radio-frequencies as a type 2B Carcinogen.
We need to keep driving the awareness and alertness of the growing public concern about microwave radiation in our environment. Certainly in Europe, there is a great deal of change. Parents are demanding safe schools for their children - wifi free schools. France for example has eliminated wifi exposure within their schools. Please visit www.wifiexposure.com for more information about this and other initiatives taken within the European Communities and around the world.
I would like to present our Petition to the Governor of California, the California Senate, and the California House of Representatives with as many signatures as possible, representing the growing numbers of Californians who want to err on the side of caution for their children and use hard wired connections to computers in schools. This cautionary approach would also protect teachers and non-teaching staff in schools.
