East Coast Building Biology is proud to announce their Radio Frequency Awareness Program for schools. This much need program provides Principals, Teachers and Primary and High School Students and insight into the invisible world of Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields (RF EMFs). The program enables an understanding of the RF EMFs that surround us and we are now so dependant on. With this knowledge and understanding we can choose how to reduce our exposure to RF EMFs to protect our wellbeing. The program is for all ages, professional development for teachers, and relevant for students of all ages.
The Australian Digital Education Revolution was launched in late 2008, providing laptop, broadband and ICT support for Australian Schools.
In 2011 World Health Organisation (WHO) International Agency for Research for Cancer (IARC), May 31, 2011 classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMFs) as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B). http://www.iarc.fr/en/media-centre/pr/2011/pdfs/pr208_E.pdf
This followed the 2007 Bio-Initiative Report produced by a panel of international experts. This body of scientific evidence supported RF EMFs producing biological effects (changes in the body). The report was later updated with the Bio-Initiative Report 2012. The 2012 report is a collation of 4000 peer reviewed scientific publications showing non-thermal effects of RF-EMR. http://www.bioinitiative.org/research-summaries/
Our increasing exposure to Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields (RF EMF) from our wireless devices is something of great concern to independent researchers, particularly where children are concerned. This generation will be the first who will be exposed to this throughout their lives. The long term effects of this exposure will be evident in this generation.
Scientists around the world agree RF EMFs produce biological effects, what is debated is if these biological effects will damage health.
While the scientist and Governments work out an appropriate response to these biological changes, we can acknowledge RF EMFs and learn about them. Treating them with the care and respect due to them in response to their WHO “possibly carcinogenic” status. With some awareness and education, we can reduce our exposure and promote personal safety. We can learn to be tech safe and savvy.
