More news related to wireless tech and public health:

* The National Toxicology Program/National Institutes of Health's $30 million study demonstrates a clear link between exposure to wireless cell-phone signals and cancer, but the FDA is downplaying it. Read Dr. Ronald Melnick's opinion:

* A new study released by Yale School of Medicine and the Connecticut Health Department shows elevated risks of thyroid cancer among heavier, long-term cell-phone users. Thyroid cancer is the fastest growing cancer in the U.S.

* France has banned smartphone use in schools and the San Francisco Unified School District has passed a resolution calling for safer wireless-technology standards for all of its schools.

* An op-ed by NM Representative Ben Ray Lujan and FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel in the Santa Fe New Mexican in September called for "no child left offline." On November 11, the Santa Fe Public Schools posted a classified ad for "rolling study hall tutors" to provide "tutoring, student assistance relating to an online math support program, and general homework help" on "six Wi-Fi enabled buses" serving middle-school students from 6-8:30 AM and 3-5 PM daily.

Yikes. Would any educators and legislators discuss safer tech use in schools?

Because more than 40% of primary and middle-school students in Shandong, China have nearsightedness, several government agencies have joined forces to forbid students from bringing cellphones and tablets to class. A government-issued plan recommends that children's use of electronic screens not exceed 15 minutes in a single session, and not more than one hour per day.
