ISDE, IDEA: Statement on Electromagnetic [radio frequency] Radiation [EMR] and Health Risks

International Society of Doctors for the environment (ISDE) and Irish Doctors’ Environmental Association (IDEA) state that there is sufficient scientific evidence to warrant more stringent controls on the level and distribution of electromagnetic radiation [EMR]. The joint statement and recommendations are part of a call by medical and scientific experts for safe technologies in schools.

The report aims to inform schools, Governing Bodies, Academy Trusts, School Boards, Education Authorities, teachers and parents of the professional, medical and scientific concerns about children using wireless technologies in schools. The information can be used to implement safe school policies, practices and guidance in order to safeguard the health and development of children and young people and to aid cognitive abilities, learning and achievement.
