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.

    From Meris Michaels:
    France: English translation of article from Le Parisien on amendment to law on digital education program calling for wired connections instead of Wi-Fi in schools in order to protect children. Amendment was adopted by the Lower House (Assemblée Nationale) and now must pass the Senate:

    Interesting that Isabelle Attard is so concerned over 4G. It has a freq. range of 2 to 8Ghz while 3g has from 1.8 to 2.5Ghz. You see there is some overlap with 4G reaching somewhat higher. Most of the gains in 4g is in it’s modulation techniques,allowing for greater data transfer with more noice immunity. What does this mean electromagnetically. Not much difference as any waveshape, no matter what the modulation techniques used, is the result of the summation of sinusoidals. In the case of 4g, these sinusoidals will range from 2 to 8ghz in frequency, in the case of 3g, 1.8 to 2.5ghz. See Fourier’s and Laplace’s theorems.

      You seem to know your stuff – thanks. I will look into what you have mentioned.
      I am assuming that 3G and 4G are both not great to be exposed to on a continual basis. So either way I think this is a step forward in protecting our children. When we send them to school and they are exposed to wifi, flourescent lights, other kids cell phones etc . we basically have very little choice in what they are exposed to unless we homeschool.
