In 2013, Israel banned Wi-Fi in kindergartens and limited its use in elementary schools. Israeli schools allow Wi-Fi for three hours per week in the first and second grades and six hours per week for third graders. In 2017, Cypress banned Wi-Fi in Kindergartens and elementary schools.
Russia has published safety recommendations encouraging children to use wired connection rather than Wi-Fi during the COVID lockdown. Children’s Health Defense has published a “step by step” guide on how to hardwire wireless devices for safe remote learning. The Chairman for the Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection, Professor Oleg Grigoriev, has criticized corruption in the international regulatory agencies. FCC’s health guidelines rely on the obsolete, laughable assumption that the non-ionizing radiation wireless technologies are harmful only if they cause thermal change in tissue. That assumption is 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.
