Russia seeking to ban Wi-Fi, cell phones in elementary schools


The Russian Ministry of Health has proposed a ban on the use of mobile phones and Wi-Fi technology in elementary schools throughout Russia, citing the dangers associated with non-ionizing radiation.

The Medical Department of the Russian Academy of Science, along with the Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection and the Russian Ministry of Health, put together a series of recommendations explaining how keeping young students away from these technologies would directly benefit both their health and learning capacities.

Professor Oleg Grigoriev, Dr.Sc, PhD, Chairman of the Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection, has been an outspoken opponent of wireless technology, which he warns is very dangerous, especially for developing youth.

“Our proposal became the #official opinion in the new #hygiene regulations for #digital school,” Grigoriev wrote in a tweet. “The #electromagnetic exposure of #children will decrease,” he added.

In 2018, Professor Martin Pall put together a meta-analysis paper entitled, “Wi-Fi is an important threat to human health,” that outlines various reference studies showing that Wi-Fi causes:

• Oxidative stress on the body
• Sperm and testicular damage
• Neuropsychiatric effects including EEG changes
• Apoptosis (cellular death) in healthy cells
• Cellular DNA damage
• Endocrine changes (hormone damage)
• Calcium overload

This is a mere sampling of what science has uncovered about the detrimental effects of Wi-Fi and cell phones, which are prolific in today’s society, including among young children. And because Russia actually cares about the health of its people, it is trying to nip this problem in the bud before it creates a major public health crisis.

Joining Israel and Cyprus, Russia is trying to keep developing youth away from wireless

Back in 2013, the nation of Israel became the first country in the world to adopt limitations on the use of Wi-Fi in schools. It outright banned Wi-Fi in kindergarten classrooms, and greatly limited the use of Wi-Fi in subsequent elementary grades.

Wi-Fi is only allowed to be used in first and second grade classrooms for three hours per week, and for up to six hours per week in third grade. At all other times, the technology must be turned off for the health and safety of students.

In Cyprus, officials made a similar move in 2017 by banning Wi-Fi in kindergarten classrooms. The Cyprus National Committee on Environment and Child Health also launched a nationwide campaign that same year to raise public awareness about the dangers of cell phones and wireless radiation, especially in young children.

In the United States, the governor-appointed Maryland State Children’s Environmental Health and Protection Advisory Council (CEHPAC) issued a report back in 2016 advising the Department of Education to recommend that local school districts work to reduce student exposure to wireless radiation. Nothing was ever done, of course.

This is because the United States is run by technocrat oligarchs who could not care less about the health and safety of children, let alone citizens. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) continues to insist that all wireless radiation is “safe,” and the federal government at large, even under Trump, is diving headlong into spreading more of it through the nationwide rollout of 5G technology.

“The FCC health guidelines rely on the obsolete scientific assumption that the non-ionizing radiation emitted by microwave frequencies used for wireless technology can be harmful, only if they cause thermal change in tissue,” explains Children’s Health Defense (CHD).

“That assumption has been proven false in thousands of studies, even before cell phones were commercialized in the 1980s. Contrary to the FCC’s position, in the 1970s, the Russians had already acknowledged that the radiation emitted from radio and microwave frequencies based technologies can be harmful at levels that are at least 1,000 times lower than the levels that create thermal effects.”
