Martha R Herbert, PhD, MD, a pediatric neurologist and neuroscientist on the faculty of Harvard Medical School has warned that W-Fi should not be used in schools due to concerns that exposure to the pulsed microwave radiation used in Wi-Fi may have adverse effects on children’s ability to learn and potentially damage their health.
In a letter to the Los Angeles Unified School District, Dr Herbert stated:
“EMF/RFR from Wi-Fi and cell towers can exert a disorganizing effect on the ability to learn and remember, and can also be destabilizing to immune and metabolic function. This will make it harder for some children to learn, particularly those who are already having problems in the first place.”
Dr Herbert has also written a 60 page paper about how exposure to electromagnetic radiation may affect children’s development, supported by more than over 550 references to the scientific literature.
