The Center for Electrosmog Prevention (CEP) fully supports the "Turn It Off 4 Kids Initiative".  Many parents and teachers are reporting microwave radiation-related illness in schools where commercial wi-fi networks have been installed.  The symptoms include headache, dizziness, nausea, ringing or pain in the ears, bleeding sinuses, memory problems, and heart ailments, to name but a few immediate reactions.  Scientific evidence issued by non-industry sources, physician associations such as the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (representing over 300 physicians specializing in environmental exposures including wireless), and the American Academy of Pediatrics (representing 60,000 physicians) have all issued warnings about exposing children to devices emitting microwave rf radiation, including wi-fi. The World Health Organization has linked cancer with these exposures.  For the sake of our children's health, turn off the wifi at school and in all environments that children and pregnant mothers occupy.  Wired Internet is safer and more secure, and readily available.  Get rid of the wi-fi in all public places, especially libraries, schools and all childcare facilities, now!
