Yes, we want young people to have all the advantages of digital technology – essential in this information age. This can be accomplished much more safely, with much less risk to their health, and ours.

No one is monitoring the dose accumulation of wireless microwave radiation for adverse effects and most doctors are not trained to recognize related symptoms.

Doctors For Safer Schools

Doctors for Safer Schools is an international advisory board founded by Stephen Sinatra, MD, FACC and Kerry Crofton, PhD. Their mission is to provide published scientific data, intake assessments, and integrative medicine protocols for doctors so they can recognize, treat – and prevent – symptoms and related conditions, including electro-sensitivity.

There is a growing body of scientific knowledge that strongly suggests radio-frequency radiation from wi-fi, and other wireless technology, poses a public health risk, especially to children. Wi-fi, which uses frequencies in the microwave range similar to cell phones, is in our schools — from kindergartens to colleges. Cell towers are near playgrounds and on college campuses. There is published, peer-reviewed evidence of harm from non-thermal levels of exposure much lower than

The Board’s objectives:

  • To seek out and provide accurate information for clinicians, parents, and school administrators regarding the potential risks and symptoms of electro-magnetic radiation (EMR) exposure so they can make informed decisions, and provide physicians with details of related medical effects which are potentially dangerous and protocols;
  • To recommend safer options and consider other technologies, while reviewing available epidemiological and clinical safety data (i.e. how schools can provide technological advantages without potentially endangering human health);
  • To recommend future research regarding monitoring parameters and both short-term and long-term biological effects of EMR based on current scientific knowledge;
  • To be a source of balanced information for the media as questions or concerns arise.

Doctors For Safer Skies

After reading this you may not be so keen on Wi-Fi flights. Yes, it’s convenient and cool, but is it safe?

“Customers demand in-flight Wi-Fi,” an airline executive told me. If only those travelers (and pilots) knew that in 2008 the physician Dr. Hans Scheiner had cautioned the aviation industry, “Some symptoms caused by electro-magnetic radiation like headaches, drowsiness, vertigo, nausea, loss of hearing and vision, loss of consciousness, and a lack of concentration are a concern in transportation safety, including aviation.”

In 2013 there were two reports of pilots fainting on board Wi-Fi –enabled aircraft.

These incidents could have nothing to do with radiation. I asked pilot, air safety investigator and aviation expert Dr. Todd Curtis to review a document I prepared and sent to aviation officials. Here is his considered expert opinion:

“The issue of in-flight WiFi has recently been brought to my attention by Dr. Kerry Crofton, and her colleagues. Although the risk of RF radiation from WiFi routers and other equipment hasn’t been looked at as a health and safety risk by the aviation community, the fact that some quarters in the medical and scientific communities have shown that this may be a risk is a concern to me. In reviewing the material sent to me by Dr. Crofton, it seems there is enough evidence to warrant further investigation. I am not aware of any tests on in-flight WiFi, or if there a requirement, with respect to potential health effects on flight crews. It appears this new technology has been tested on the electrical systems, navigation systems but not on the flight crews. It would make sense for the appropriate authorities – the FAA and elsewhere – to take a serious look at this issue.”

See pages 209 – 214 within the book for more information and also for what you need to know about airport security scanners – no, they are not without risks to your health.

Here is a document I submitted to aviation officials – please pass it along to regulators and anyone in the industry.
