Have you read the instructions that came with your iPad? If you haven't, you are not alone. Most people including school administrators and teachers don't read the tiny words that are written on the instruction booklet. Not wanting to sound suspicious - well maybe just a little - but Apple isn't doing its best to provide you with the information you need to use the iPad safely. IPads must be held a certain way or they exceed the FCC regulations. Read the information below that is in the booklet. From: CenterForSaferWireless.org. Watch their brief video, here below:
"The Obama Administration is promoting wireless internet access in schools. The intent is for each child during the school day to do school work on an iPad and/or laptop with WiFi. What they are not telling the parents is that the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer has determined that pulsed radio frequency radiation, i.e., the radiation being emitted from wireless technology is possibly cancer causing. The radiation was given a class 2B rating. The same classification they have given to DDT, lead, exhaust fumes and chloroform. No government, nor parents, should allow these toxins to be in the classrooms ..." Center For Safer Wireless
This Children's Health Expert Panel presented a wide range of global scientific evidence that electro-magnetic radiation of the kind emitted by portable phones, Wi-Fi routers, baby monitors, Bluetooth earpieces, towers, antennas, smart boards, smart meters, Google glass and other devices is adversely affecting people across the globe, and especially children. This radiation may be ‘non-thermal’, but has clear and indisputable biological and health effects. Click here to read their report summary.
Your Brain on a Cellphone (Sep. 23, 2013 - Berkeley, California): The first study on the short-term effects of Long Term Evolution (LTE), the fourth generation cell phone technology, has been published online in the peer-reviewed journal, Clinical Neurophysiology.
The resting state brain activity of each participant was measured by magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) at two times -- after exposure to LTE microwave radiation, and after a sham exposure. The results demonstrated that LTE exposure affected brain neural activity not only in the closer brain region but also in the remote region, including the left hemisphere of the brain. The study helps explain the underlying neural mechanism for the remote effects of microwave radiation in the brain. Read more by clicking here.
Dr. Hugh Taylor talks about the Yale study showing ADHD-like behaviors in mice exposed to simple cell phone exposure (not smart phone, which emits more radiation, he says), on June 28, 2013 at the La Grua Center in Stonington, CT. The event, "Cell Phones and WiFi--Are Children, Fetuses and Fertility at Risk?", was co-sponsored by ElectriomagneticHealth.org and Environmental Heath Trust.

The British Government announced on 10 May 2013, that SmartMeter installations throughout the country will be delayed by more than a year serious health and medical concerns. This news has been completely ignored by US news media outlets. Normally, anything coming out of the UK gets trumpeted all over the US news media, especially NPR ... but not this time.
Also worth noting, Italy has banned wireless SmartMeters entirely, nationwide. This news has been completely ignored by US news media outlets. And India is dismantling all microwave towers that stand within 1,000 meters of a school or hospital, as well as banning the construction of new towers in those restricted zones.
Watch the video here below to observe the hearings that led to the UKs moratorium on SmartMeters.
Electromagnetic Fields: 12 Ways of Protecting Yourself - On 12 December 2012, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) made history. The non-profit group representing more than 60 000 physicians supported H.R. 6358, the Cell Phone Right to Know Act, introduced by Ohio Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich (Democrat, Ohio). It hence became the first major American medical body to state : “It is essential that any new standards for cell phones or other wireless devices be based on protecting the youngest and most vulnerable populations to ensure they are safeguarded through their lifetimes.’’ Click here to read the article in its entirety.
Smart Meters: Correcting the Gross Misinformation: Quebec-based environmental magazine La Maison du 21e Siecle asked Dr. David O. Carpenter, MD, former founding dean of the University at Albany (NY)’s School of Public Health, to comment an open letter published in the Montreal daily Le Devoir. This letter claimed wireless smart meters pose no risk to public health. More than fifty international experts (scientists and health care professionals) contributed to the following rebuttal.

By the time they’re 19 or 20 years old, our children will have used a cell phone for 10 years, and we have no idea what type of risk that’s carrying. Now we live an ocean of electromagnetic radiation.
It’s all around us now, invisible, but we know it’s there. Every time you lift up your mobile phone you know it’s there. It is very hard to turn the clock back, in fact it is impossible, but we need to be aware of the adverse health effects so that we can have the choice of taking precautions against the exposures.
How we could have possibly thought that putting microwaves to our brain was safe? We just don’t fully understand what we’re doing. The full length 90-minute documentary, Resonance - Beings of Frequency, can be watched by clicking the video frame here below.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — November 26, 2012. A new policy report focused on the electric grid and economy of energy, “Getting Smarter About the Smart Grid”, was published today by the National Institute for Science, Law & Public Policy (NISLAPP) in Washington, D.C. The report states that billions of dollars in federal subsidies for “smart” utility meters have been misspent on meter technology that will not lead to energy sustainability or contribute to the possibility of a more efficient and responsive electricity grid.

David O. Carpenter M.D., from a report Dr. Carpenter delivered to the Quebec Energy Board:
"It is my opinion that the state of scientific research sufficiently establishes a risk that meters transmitting by radio frequencies as proposed in the present file by Hydro-Quebec may constitute a risk of serious as well as irreversible damage to health, through biological effects other than those resulting from heat. Some individuals or categories of individuals are more susceptible to injury than others (children, pregnant women, elderly, persons will illness, electrosensitive individuals, etc)." David O. Carpenter, M.D., Ph.D.
