Second Ontario School Removes Wifi Due to Health Concerns

Canada NewsWire

PETERBOROUGH, ON, Oct. 11, 2011 /CNW/ - A Peterborough school has removed its WiFi and replaced it with a hard-wired internet system due to health warnings.

"This eliminates any concerns about the safety of using WiFi in a school setting," said Adam Parker, Principal of Wayside Academy, a private (K-12) Catholic school.

In May the World Health Organization warned that microwave radiation from WiFi, and other wireless devices is now considered a "Possible Carcinogen" and placed it on the same list as DDT, lead, and car exhaust.

In September another school in Collingwood removed its WiFi, and the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario is investigating whether WiFi is safe for Ontario classrooms.
