    She is one person that we know about.
    And thank god for that.

    It's not as if thousands of people can suddenly go to their Doctor and say "I'm suffering from Wi-Fi signals"
    Thats because they aren't.

    The human mind is so easy to influence into thinking it is suffering from something - that is the reason placebo's are so effective (ie. homeopathy).

    If I go into a room full of people and start talking about the dangers of wifi radiation and then mention that I get headaches from it, I can guarantee that at least 1 of the people in there will start having symptoms of some sort.

    We develop symptoms based on our fears.

    Personally I think we should drown all Wifi access points, if they die we know they weren't causing harm!

    or burn them! same principle!

    Edugeeks are incredibly sarcastic!

    Part of me says that we do not know of any effects apart from a few people with conditions that may not be attributable to the use of Wi-Fi, but the extra EM radiation that abounds in the modern world.

    I am light sensitive. I where shades most of the time and if I am in London at night I have been known to where them due to the amount of light pollution.

    I do not ask people to turn off their lights as I know that it can be managed.

    This is a genetic predisposition. I also have a speech impediment ... I have trouble with my Rs. I try to craft my spoken sentences to say different words instead (a bit difficult recently when talking about our behaviour tracking system and its ability to rank pupils due to naughtiness).

    Sensitivity to certain natural and man-made factors is something that has occured for years. You can look at certain islands (Galapagos) for examples of how the environment changes things over a period of time.

    Even if it is proved that the types of EM raditiation that occurs in schools (or other areas) may be harmful to a tiny minority of people does that mean that everyone else has to do without?

    Do we tell the school canteen not to come into contact with nuts as we know that we have one student here with a severe allergy to cashew nuts?

    No, it is managed and dealt with.

    The main objection is that the programme was so one sided it seemed that it just wanted to create a media mob frenzy. If the idea of the show was to encourage the Govt to do more research then fine ... but they target a vunerable group who do not have the legal backing to tell them to wind their necks in. They play on the fears of parents rather than trying to do a measured scientific approach.

    I will be asking for further guidance from those further up the ladder politically at the LA and DfES, but this is becoming a political thing rather than based on science.

    You’re referring to multi-path you get this both indoors and outdoors. What got me about the engineers testing method was he stood next to a laptop that could also have been broadcasting. While taking a reading for the mast outside there was no mobile being used next to his meter? He made no mention of background noise which is present in all built up areas.
