In March of 2018, scientists confirmed there is "clear evidence" that wifi radiation is a carcinogen. An increasing number of countries around the world are banning Wi-Fi in schools. Questions over the safety of long term exposure to wireless technology have parents here in Portland worried as well. Around the world concern is growing about the health risks to children. Wi-Fi sensitivity may affect children's health in a number of different ways. Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity, EHS, is a disabling condition caused by wireless technology radiation. Often adults may not suspect that wireless radiation is the root cause of children's learning problems at school. What is clear is that using wired computers in schools will make kids safer.
The following is a list of common EHS symptoms. It may take 3 to 5 years of chronic exposures for the symptoms to emerge.
Neurological: headaches, dizziness/nausea, memory and concentration difficulties, insomnia, tiredness, depression/anxiety, fatigue/weakness, numbness/tingling, muscle and joint pains.
Cardiac: heart palpitations, shortness of breath, heart arrhythmias, high blood pressure.
Eyes: pain/discomfort, pressure in the eyes, deteriorating vision, cataracts.
Ears: ringing in the ears, tinnitus, hearing loss.
Pain: A feeling of shooting pain in the head and strange sensations in limbs.
Skin: unusual rashes, redness on face.
Other: skin problems, digestive problems, dehydration, nosebleeds, impaired sense of smell and light sensitivity.
Building biologist Nicole Bijlsma explains that electrical hypersensitivity is estimated to affect up to 10% of the population and is recognized as a functional disorder in Sweden, Spain and Canada. Nicole investigates the symptoms, discusses who is likely to be susceptible, and explores the sources in homes and schools.
