EMF Wellness Tucson provides comprehensive assessments of all four types of EMFs in schools along with education for school administrators and recommendations to reduce EMFs to safe levels.
Children are exposed to all four types of EMFs in their schools, but the levels of Radio Frequency (microwave) radiation are rising rapidly due to the addition of Wi-Fi in classrooms and the installation of cell towers near and on school campuses. Almost all Tucson schools have cell towers either on campus or in close proximity that can emit extremely high levels of radiation into classrooms.
Further, the Tucson Unified School District Board has approved Verizon Innovative Learning Labs in multiple Tucson schools that provide Virtual Reality (VR) learning. While it is entirely feasible to use wired headsets for VR learning (since students do not need to be mobile), the program utilizes wireless headsets that emit microwave radiation directly into students' brains on both the right and left sides. You can learn more about the Verizon Innovative Learning labs in this letter sent to the TUSD Board.
“A wifi classroom is like the inside of a microwave oven set at very low power. Children are exposed to that wifi radiation six hours every school day, five days a week, and for several months during the year.”

From Tech Safe Schools:
• Today's school classrooms are filled with wireless devices, all emitting radiofrequency (RF) radiation. Manufacturers claim their devices meet FCC safety guidelines, but those guidelines are 25 years old and are not protective for children.
• The FCC has recently been ordered by a federal appeals court to re-evaluate its exposure safety guidelines in light of new studies showing RF radiation can be harmful, especially for children.
• The FDA is being challenged over its failure to establish science-based human exposure standards for RF radiation exposure and obey Public Law 90-602 passed by Congress to protect the public from electronic product radiation.
... Many children are currently suffering with symptoms related to RF radiation exposure, including headaches, nausea, dizziness and lack of concentration. Neurological impairment and reproductive problems linked to RF radiation exposure may not be immediately apparent, and cancer may take years to develop.
It's imperative that we re-evaluate our use of wireless technology in schools to ensure the safety and health of all children.
