30 elementary school students might be EHS in Rishon Lezion, Israel

A  few days ago, it was brought to my attention that there might be about 30 EHS students in one of the elementary schools in Rishon Lezion, Israel.
The school is located 25 meters from cellphone base stations that are installed on the roof of a shopping center, just a cross the street. In addition WIFI was installed in this school a few months ago and cellphone use is not banned in the classes.
According to a survey that was done by one of the parents, it seems that about 30 kids, mostly from the classes that face the antennas, are suffering from chronic headaches, skin issues, nausea and some more symptoms.

The parents held 2 meetings so far, in which I took part. The first meeting was in the offices of the municipality of Rishon Lezion, with municipal representatives. At the beginning of the meeting the municipal representative  ruled out the radiation as a possible cause of the symptoms, saying that the RF testing report by MALRAZ showed very low radiation levels. After hearing what the parents had to say and my explanations about EHS in addition to criticism about the radiation test report,  the municipal representatives agreed to take a second opinion and order a second test by a radiation tester which was suggested both by them and the parents (who I personally know and trust to show the real level even thought they are expected to be well bellow the Israeli RF standard which is 10% of ICNIRP thermal, non-protective standard).
The municipal city council member who is responsible for the environment protection in the city of Rishon Lezion, Ms's Yifat Meirovitz Yefet, reported about here efforts in the last year to remove the cellphone base station from the shopping center next to the school, so far without success. She reported that there is a new chance that the cell phone company will agree to remove the antennas soon.

Later on we (my self and about 30 parents) met in one of the parent's apartments to update the parents about the meeting with the municipal representatives, to let the other parents say whatever is on their mind and to coordinate the next steps,. In the beginning of the meeting, I shared with them info about EHS, the symptoms, how to diagnose their children , how to reduce their exposure and the necessity of acting to defend their children.

  1. Keep fighting this fight. Children should NOT be exposed to a class 2b carcinogen. This is public endangerment. All parents should be able to sue the school systems and the local officials who are sanctioning the installation of wifi in schools and public places. There is a growing body of evidence that they continually ignore that shows biological effects from exposure to pulsed modulated radiofrequency/microwave radiation. The regultions that protect us only from thermal effects is ineffectual and outdated. The governments MUST look at recent studies and information verifying that there are many nonthermal biological effects. No person should be forced to endure the discomfot of learning in an environment that makes them physically ill. Many studies show that radiofrequency/microwave radiation exposure also has effects on learning, memory, and behavior. Why are we setting our children up to have difficulty in learning and to have behavioral problems?? I personally spoke with a school nurse last year who said that the number of kids who complain of headaches has gone up dramatically. Guess what?? They have installed wifi and smart boards in the schools. They have upgraded to 4G cell service. The cell tower sits less than a mile for two schools. Who benefits from that cell tower? WHo getsthe revenue from that cell tower?? Who pays the biological price for that tower? Maybe suing for reckless endangerment or public endangerment is the way to go here. Children should not have to suffer in a place they are forced to go. Let's hope that those charged with the care of all the children wake up soon and are no longer fooled or bought by the wireless industry! Keep up the good work.

  2. The Specific Absorption Rate used for limits of human exposure is a plastic head with liquid in it. The antennas, routers and smart meter grid were not considered in the test on safety. When routers cover the classroom with these frequencies, the children and teachers are really part of an electrical circuit. That means they are realistically being electrocuted slowly.

    There are real reasons we wire the world and that is to avoid electrocution by putting people in the circuit. Causation has been found linking the frequencies to adverse health effects and it also causes accelerated corrosion of buildings and infrastructure.
