    #1267: WiFi concerns at Mountain View School in Collingwood, Ontario, Canada

    Hello Everyone,

    As some of you already know, there are several students in Mountain View School in Collingwood, Ontario (Canada) who are complaining about ill health after the school installed WiFi. Rodney, a concerned father, invited me to give a talk in the Community this past week and the room was packed with parents, health care professionals, people from the community, and the media so I hope it will generate more interest once the articles begin to appear.

    See video clip of interviews with some of the students at the school. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-TJXRc5fzo&feature=player_embedded

    See video documenting tachycardia in adults during provocation with a cordless (DECT) phone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EI9fZX4iww

    What is disturbing is that several students have complained about ill health, two students are now on heart medication and one young girl is scheduled for heart surgery on Monday June 14th. A student in a Toronto school (also with WiFi) fainted while standing in the hallway near a WiFi antenna. The students with heart conditions have been diagnosed with one of the following: vaso vagal syndrome, supraventicular tachycardia (SVT), or Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) Syndrome (abnormal connections or accessory pathways in the heart) a form of atrioventricular reciprocating tachycardia (AVRT).

    Symptoms for SVT include: dizziness, shortness of breath, chest pain, a pounding sensation in the throat or neck, weakness, fatigue, lightheadedness, fainting (especially in the case of underlying heart disease) and resemble EHS symptoms.

    Prevelance rate for tachycardia is about 1.6% to 2% for adults. http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/t/tachycardia/stats.htm
    Prevelance for WPW is 0.15% in children. See: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2363719/ Epidemiology of Arrhythmias in Children, by R Prem Sekar. Indian Pacing Electrophysiol J. 2008 Apr–Jun; 8(Suppl. 1): S8–S13.

    I recently heard that all the schools in my district (Kawartha Pine Ridge) are going to have WiFi installed soon. Where are these schools getting information that this technology is safe? I find this situation most disturbing. If these heart conditions are related to WiFi then I think the schools and those who make the statement that this radiation is safe (Health Canada and local Health Boards) are culpable.

    Have received emails from several of the people who attended the presentation this past week and learned that some parents are also having heart palpitations and rapid heart rate because of WiFi in the home. They didn’t know this was contributing to their heart problems and have, since the talk, disconnected their wireless devices.

    Why are doctors not better informed? Anyone who suddenly experiences a heart irregularity should be asked some specific questions about whether or not they have wireless routers, cordless phones, energy efficient CFL bulbs, nearby cell towers, etc. as routine questioning.

    The heart problem (arrhythmia or tachycardia), which can be easily measured, may be a very important test for those who are EHS. Please spread the word and ask your friends if they experience symptoms of an irregular or racing heart and if they do ask them when it started, what changed at that time, if it is occassional-when they experience it and what they are doing about it. The more information we can gather the more impact it is going to have on school boards. Getting rid of WiFi is more difficult than preventing it from being allowed into a school in the first place.

    Please distribute this email to your friends and let’s get a better understanding as to how widespread this heart problem is and the degree to which it relates to wireless technology and electrosmog exposure.

    Thanks for your help,
    -magda

    p.s. If you or someone you know is experiencing heart problems, which may be related to electrosmog, please contact me with your symptoms and your experience and send a copy to: info@safeschool.ca
