Dr. Sinatra Against WiFi in Schools

Filed Under: Heart Health

You can't see it, but it’s all around you and could be hurting you and your loved ones. It’s WiFi. child with laptop

The term WiFi is not a technical one—it's merely one that's been coined from the WiFi Alliance trademark. Just as the company name Zerox became synonymous with copy machines everywhere (even becoming a verb itself!), the trademark WiFi is lingo used to refer to wireless frequencies.

These invisible wavelengths can impact your health, from cardiovascular problems like irregular heartbeats and disturbed heart rate variability (HRV) to headaches and other neurological issues in adults and children alike.

This past September, I posted blogs on Dr. Sinatra's trip to Vancouver, Canada, where he addressed an audience on the safety of WiFi and other radio frequency issues with Dr. Kerry Crofton, health advocate and author of Radiation Safety. As you may recall, two Canadian television network crews arrived that night to learn more about this public health controversy.

In addition to making the 11:00 pm news the rainy night of his lecture, Dr. Sinatra was interviewed by Carolyn Jarvis for a Canadian documentary that was exposing the truth about the controversy. Fortunately, there is a YouTube posting of that show so we here in the States can learn from our actively concerned northern neighbors.           

Already, there is one Canadian school principal who has decided to err on the side of safety and remove the school's WiFi, switching instead to safer DSL lines for their computers. No sacrifice in education technology for the students, but a big reduction in probable heath risk.
