    Response to the position paper on the introduction of Wi-Fi & Cellular systems to schools in Israel

    From Iris Atzmon and the EHS Fight Back Blog:

    ENGLISH VERSION – Israeli Government Installing Wi-Fi in Schools, Saving Money on the Expense of its Children’s Health

    The Israeli Government policy on wireless technology led by Dr. Sigal Sadetzki has been outrageously negligent. While the ‘precautionary principle’ is being quoted often, in reality it is an empty slogan. Most recently, an inter-departmental committee on the issue of wireless technology in schools ‘recommended’ the use of wired LAN but DID NOT BAN Wi-Fi, and outrageously left the decision of whether or not to use Wi-Fi to the principles, who probably cannot even explain what electricity is, let alone electromagnetic radiation. The Ministry of Education has been using this decision to actually promote Wi-Fi in schools despite known and established adverse health effects of which Dr, Sadetzki has been ignoring including denying the existence of EHS. Following is my response to the position paper which is largely based on an affidavit given by Prof. David Carpenter

    The State of Israel once again recklessly endangers the health of its children, and proves that its public officials do not deserve the responsibility with which they are entrusted. The application of the ‘precautionary principle’ regarding electromagnetic radiation indicates that the use of the precautionary principle is not a policy but rather an empty slogan.
