Our mission at SafeTech Kids NC is to protect our children our future from the adverse health effects of microwave radiation emitted from wireless devices.

We provide education and advocacy throughout N.C. on why and how to use technology safely.

According to peer-reviewed scientific research, the radiation emitted by cell phones, WiFi, smart utility meters, and other wireless devices causes many adverse health effects. 1, 2 The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer classified this radiation as a “possible human carcinogen” in 2011. 3 Last May, the U.S. government’s National Toxicology Program found radiation from wireless devices to cause cancer in 5.5% of animals exposed.4 Microwave radiation can adversely affect fertility, brain development, behavior and mood, learning and attention spans. It can impact our bodies at the cellular level, even breaking our DNA.1, 2​​

Our children are most vulnerable to this radiation, and may be exposed to it for their lifetime. Their vulnerability stems from their developing brains, as well as their immature immune, nervous, and reproductive systems. Children’s skulls are smaller and thinner, resulting in deeper penetration of radiation into their brains. They absorb 10 times more radiation in the bone marrow of the skulls than adults. Because children are still growing, their stem cells are rapidly dividing, and more vulnerable to all toxins. 3, 5

We can protect them from these health effects to a significant degree. The recommendation of doctors and scientists world-wide is to reduce children’s radiation exposures – particularly at home and at school. 6 More than 20 countries around the world have taken precautionary measures to reduce children’s risks. 7 We can do the same here in North Carolina and the United States. Let’s put aside convenience. Let’s bestow on our children the greatest gift of all – the gift of health.
Common Symptoms from frequent Exposure to Wireless Devices

  • Headaches / Migraines
  • Sleep disturbances / insomnia
  • Nose bleeds
  • Anxiety, Irritability
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Dizziness or nausea
  • Ringing in the Ears
  • Memory loss
  • Increased heartrate or high blood pressure

Radiation in NC Public Schools

Most public school children in N.C. are now exposed to very high levels of microwave radiation in schools due to the use of 5 GHZ, industrial-strength WiFi that can penetrate through concrete and bricks. High radiation levels in the school environment are also due to wireless smart boards, multiple routers/wireless access points, downloading of documents, and dozens of wireless devices is use in each classroom, all held close to little bodies and brains. (add reference: find DPI’s link for this year)  Unfortunately, children are likely to have a lifetime of this radiation exposure. Cancer’s typical lag time of 10-20 years to develop will likely impact many of them in the prime of their life.  

Unfortunately, both state and local school officials in NC are relying on the wireless safety guidelines developed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which have not been updated in 20 years. These guidelines only account for the heating of human tissue with exposures of up to 30 minutes on a 220-pound model, not for the cumulative exposures that school children experience 180 days per year. 14 Our NC Legislators and officials at the NC Department of Public Instruction and our local school districts need to hear from more parents in order to make the crucial changes needed to protect our children.
