France bans wifi in kindergartens because of radiation




French nurseries may not offer wifi. A law to this effect was adopted in the French parliament. The government fears the health effects of radiation by wifi. There will be additional research into the actual impact.

Wifi logo All the sites in France where children under three are collected should be free wifi, reports The Editors. Although scientists do not at all agree that WiFi radiation actually provides health, France fears the impact of Wi-Fi radiation on children.

Initially, the government also prohibit wifi in primary schools, but that did not happen. However, the wifi connection should be disabled if it is not in use, though it is unclear what exactly is the definition of ‘not in use’. Further stores should indicate if they offer public wifi and handsfree calling stimulated. Finally allowed to phone makers and carriers ads no longer focus on children.

Even when radiation is harmful, which opinions differ, the measures are likely to make little difference. FM radio and telephones operate at roughly the same frequency bands and phones provide probably more radiation, according to the UK Health Protection Agency.
