    On the night of Thursday to Friday, during the third public meeting on the bill to overhaul the school of the Republic, an amendment proposed by Isabelle Attard was adopted. This amendment establishes the infrastructure created for the implementation of the public service of digital educational “promote the use of wired data connections” in relation to WIFI and states that “the precautionary principle must push the state and local governments to protect children, especially the younger ones, the influence of waves. ”

    At a time when Belgium is preparing to take a series of strong measures, for example prohibiting the placing on the market of mobile phones designed specifically for children, France still suffers from a legal vacuum incomprehensible about it. As a reminder, the bill brought by environmentalists to limit the adverse effects of air must be passed January 31, 2013 in the National Assembly, but was referred to Committee on Economic Affairs by the Minister PELLERIN Flower. It considers that, despite mounting evidence of its harmfulness, concerns related to the effects of electromagnetic fields on humans are “irrational fears.”

    Isabelle Attard believes the adoption of this amendment as an important first step and fundamental. Full deployment of 4G, while the children are at a young age, increased exposure to electromagnetic waves, it is urgent to go further and to stop playing with fire.
