Professor Yuri Grigoriev on Wi-Fi and health

19th June 2012. Translation from the video:


Programm of the Russian Committee on the protection from non-ionising
radiation with regard to the need to introduce strict regulations on the
use of Wi-Fi in kindergartens and schools.

'I have already been informed that pushy parents are already trying to
get this installed in kindergartens... Everybody sees Moscow... '

Mobile network connections are very popular amongst children of various
ages. The duration of conversations on mobile phones is higher for
children compared to the adult population. At the same time
electromagnetic fields and radio frequencies are irradiating the brain
every day. Furthermore, children are constantly subjected to
electromagnetic radiation and radio frequencies from the base stations
around the clock.

The problem of preserving the health of children subject to the
developing conditions of wireless radio communications is referred to as
a priority by the World Health Organisation.

Next paragraph.

Electromagnetic radiation from Wi-Fi presents an additional burden to a
child whose body is in a state of development and whose mental
activities are in the formative stage. During this period children are
most susceptible to negative environmental factors.

WHO, Publication 3, April 2004


Furthermore it is necessary to highlight that the current regulations
were developed without taking into consideration this additional
influence of electromagnetic fields. We don¹t have these regulations yet.

Our Committee believes it is necessary to:

Firstly, draw the attention of the RF Ministry of Health and of all of
the other organisations responsible for the safety of the population,
including children, to the regulations regarding the use of Wi-Fi in
kindergartens and schools, and to increase the sanitary and
epidemiological control over the use of Wi-Fi, and the development of
the relevant regulatory framework.

Secondly, to recommend the use of wired networks and not networks using
wireless broadband access systems, including Wi-Fi, in schools and
educational establishments.
