Students: Raise this issue with your school and ask for sleeping and studying areas free of wireless radiation. Students can practice SAFE TECH and keep cell phones out of their bras and pockets.


Parents:  Talk to the school administrators about this issue and request they take action to reduce campus exposures. Write letters asking that they prioritize the health of your child.

Classes are usually lectures or group work time, not research time (that is done outside of college classes in study areas).  There is no need for wifi in every classroom. If it is needed for instruction then why not get hook ups in those classrooms with ports for all just as you would in a high school.  

Install a landline in every dorm room (like  the old days - meaning 5 years ago) and an internet hook up in every dorm room.

I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing.

What Can We Do ?

Sleep and Memory: Considering the science showing that WiFi damages sleep and our memory, why in the world would we saturate our higher learning institutions with this radiation. They barely sleep as it is!

The Problem: College students today use cell phones as their primary connection to family and friends.  They spend hours on wifi laptops in wifi classrooms and sleep in dorms with industrial routers.      

FACT: 30 minutes a day/cell phone is linked to increased Brain Cancer
FACT: WIFI from Laptops Damages Sperm DNA
FACT: We have no idea what 24 hour full body exposure will mean.





A few years ago Eva arrived at the University of British Columbia, ready to pursue her education. Soon she became ill with all kinds of severe symptoms she hadn’t experienced before – nausea, headaches, dizziness, heart palpitations and insomnia. However, when she came home, her symptoms disappeared within a few days.

Returning to UBC, the symptoms came back. She then discovered a Wi-Fi router on the opposite side of her bedroom wall. After months of illness, she was medically diagnosed in 2011 with electrohypersensitivity.

“I am a young adult, yet I am not free by any stretch of the imagination,” she said. Read more about her story Here.
