Letter from the American Academy of Environmental Medicine concerning High-Powered WiFi Systems in Schools

The American Academy of Environmental Medicine comprises Medical Doctors,
Osteopaths and PhD researchers focusing on the effects of environmental agents
on human health. For forty years the Academy has trained Physicians to treat the
most difficult, to heal patients who are often overlooked by our medical system
because the cause of their illness is a chemical, solvent, or toxic metal, not a
bacteria, virus or other traditionally understood cause.

In recent years our members and colleagues have reported an increase in patients
whose symptoms are reversible by eliminating wireless radiating devices in their
homes such as cell phones, cordless phones and wireless internet systems.
There is consistent emerging science that shows people, especially children are
affected by the increasing exposure to wireless radiation. In September 2010, the
Journal of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine ‐ Fertility and Sterility
reported that only four hours of exposure to a standard laptop using WiFi caused
DNA damage to human sperm.

In May 2011, the World Health Organization elevated exposure to wireless
radiation, including WiFi, onto the Class 2b list of Carcinogens.
In October 2012, the AAEM issued a public warning about WiFi in schools that

“Adverse health effects from wireless radio frequency fields, such as learning
disabilities, altered immune responses, and headaches, clearly exist and are well
documented in the scientific literature. Safer technology, such as use of hardwiring,
is strongly recommended in schools.”

In December 2012, the American Academy of Pediatrics ‐ representing 60,000
pediatricians, wrote to Congress requesting it update the safety levels of
microwave radiation exposure especially for children and pregnant women.

The WiFi systems in schools are typically hundreds of times more powerful than
the home consumer systems you may be familiar with. They are also dozens of
times more powerful than the cafe and restaurant systems you may have been
exposed to. The WiFi systems in schools are necessarily more powerful than any
microwave communication systems in any other setting because they are required
to run hundreds of computers simultaneously. They are also exposing children ‐ the
Los Angeles Unified School District most vulnerable to microwave radiation ‐ to extended
periods all day, for their entire childhood.

This is an unprecedented exposure with unknown outcome on the health and reproductive
potential of a generation.

To install this system in Los Angeles risks a widespread public health question that the medical
system is not yet prepared to answer.

In October 2013, the AAEM is organizing an international medical conference in Phoenix AZ to
teach doctors how to identify patients whose symptoms can be reversed by eliminating
exposure to WiFi, cell phones and other forms of wireless radiation in the home.

It is unlikely that there are currently enough doctors in Los Angeles County familiar with the
biological effects of microwave radiation to diagnose and treat the numbers of children who will
potentially become symptomatic from exposure to your wireless system should you elect to
install it. Statistics show that you can expect an immediate reaction in 3% of your students and
time‐delayed reactions in 30% of them. This will also include teachers.

The American Academy of Environmental Medicine suggests strongly that you do not add to the
burden of public health by installing blanket wireless internet connections in Los Angeles
schools. Hardwired internet connections are not only safer, they are stronger, and more secure.
Children who are required by law to attend school also require a higher level of protection than
the general public. You may be directed by technology proponents that the science on the
human health effects of WiFi is not yet certain. This uncertainty is not a reason to subject a
generation of children to such extreme exposure. Rather, it is the foundation upon which
caution must be exercised to prevent a potential public health disaster.

While technicians and sales staff argue about the validity of the dangers posed by cell towers,
cell phones, WiFi and other forms of wireless radiation, it is the doctors who must deal with the
fall out. Until we, as doctors, can determine why some of our patients become debilitatingly sick
from WiFi and other microwave communications, while others do not, we implore you not to
take such a known risk with the health of so many children who have entrusted you to keep
them safe while at school.
