Belgio: il consigliere della città di Ghent, per la educazione e l'infazia, ha messo al bando il wifi

... nelle scuole della prima infanzia, ovvero per bambini sotto ai tre anni.
La motivazione è essenzialmente la preoccupazione di danni futuri dovuti alle radiofrequenze.




Ghent, Flanders: Ghent bans wi-fi from pre-schools and day care

http://www.flanderstoday.eu/education/ghent-bans-wi-fi-pre-schools-and-day-care




Summary
Ghent’s alderwoman for education and youth has announced a ban on wireless networks in day care facilities and pre-schools out of concern for radiation levels

Radiation feared

As part of a new policy plan for local schools, Ghent’s alderwoman of education and youth has banned wireless internet from spaces that cater to children between 0 and three years of age – essentially, pre-schools and day care facilities. Network cables can still be used in those facilities.
“In schools where they work with tablet computers, wi-fi can remain in place,” alderwoman Elke Decruynaere explained to Het Laatste Nieuws. “We want all children to have access to internet at school, but we also want to be careful. A report has demonstrated that we need to cautious with exposure of young children to radiation through wireless internet.”
Ghent politician Peter Dedecker (N-VA) spoke out against the plan, saying that the negative effects of radiation are not irrefutably proven and that restricting internet access could limit children’s general educational development.
“It’s important for children to get used to technology,” Dedecker told deredactie.be. “There are also a lot of educational mobile applications that teach young children about colours and shapes, for example. It would be a shame if the apps can’t be used because there is no wi-fi at school.”

Mobile phones to be banned for children

The Belgian government has announced measures to restrict the use of mobile phones by young children.
Expatica.com Feb 28, 2013

Public Health minister Laurette Onkelinx has announced that sales of mobile phones to children under 7 years will be banned in shops and also on the internet.

Adverts for mobile phones during children's programmes on TV radio and the internet will also be banned.

Research shows than in Belgium every two out of three children under 10 years have a mobile phone. At 12 years they nearly all have one.

The minister has highlighted the radiation risk from cell phones which is higher for young children than adults.

Belgium: New Measures to Protect Children from Mobile Phones

Details concerning new measures aimed at protecting children from mobile phones
RTBF, 25 February 2013 (translated from French)

Today, the majority of teenagers are hooked on mobile phones. The latest report of the International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization (WHO) considers that its use is “possibly carcinogenic for humans” and that intensive use is dangerous. It did not need more for the Belgian authorities to react. There will be rules to follow.
The Ministers for Health and for Consumer Affairs are encouraging a better protection of young users. In order to limit use, there will be rules to follow which mainly concern sales and advertising. 

There will no longer be advertising specifically targeting children younger than 14 years of age. Sellers will be obliged to inform their customers of the “specific absorption rate” of mobile phones, that is, the level of radiation of the device. The sale of mobile phones specifically designed for young children up to age 7 will be banned in Belgium. 

« Possibly carcinogenic »
For the government, these are preventive measures. The desire to particularly protect children lies principally in the fact that, cumulatively, they will be potentially exposed longer to waves during the course of their lives. 

« International studies clearly state that it is possibly carcinogenic ». If a risk exists, protection is necessary,” declared the Minister for Health, Laurette Onkelinx, to RTBF. This royal decree is her initiative, along with that of her colleague in charge of consumer protection, Johan Vande Lanotte.

The draft royal decree will be examined Friday in the Council of Ministers. 

The Minister for Health has also announced the drafting, between now and the end of the year, of another royal decree aimed at rendering obligatory the sale of a headset with mobile phones. 

“A child’s brain is a developing organ.”
Health risks (essentially, brain cancer) caused by wireless communication systems are the subject of scientific studies for which there are “diverging opinions”, stresses Luc Verschaeve, of the Institute of Public health (ISP). “There are a number of doubts and some indications of a possible risk”, he said. 

In the 1.00 pm news on « La Première », Jacques Vanderstraeten, medical consultant to the « conseil supérieur » of health, explains that if these new rules aim principally to protect young persons, it is because « the brain of a child is a developing organ and thus, more sensitive to any eventual external influence » and that it is better to prevent than to cure. 

According to a study by Crioc, the association for consumer defense, more than 90% of young persons aged 12 to 17 have a mobile phone. Dating from 2011, this study also showed that within this age range, nearly all 13-year-olds have a mobile phone. 

Also, according to WHO, phoning half an hour a day for 10 years increases the likelihood of developing a glioma (malignant brain tumor) by 40%.

The head of Belgium’s largest cellphone company bans WI-FI from his offices and tells kids cellphones are dangerous!

From Andre Fauteux, Editor
La Maison du 21e siècle magazine:
The head of Belgacom is not crazy about the Wi-Fi fad in his cellphone company’s skyscraper. The 27th floor, occupied by management, thus goes without the technology that allows high speed broadband Internet access. The decision is barely surprising when we know that Didier Bellens also asks his contacts to call him on his landline rather than on his cell.
The man who heads Belgacom, and thus Proximus, briefed schoolchildren Tuesday about the dangers of the Internet, in the charming company of (tennis player) Justine Henin. The initiative was organized with Child Focus and Microsoft.
Didier Bellens, president of Belgacom (Belgium cell operator), explains that the GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) is dangerous – (Sudpresse – 25/11/2011). And when a child asks about the dangers of cellphones, the head of the country’s largest cellphone company does not mince his words. He explains to pupils of the Centre of Woluwe-Saint-Pierre school that GSM is bad and a health threat.
“During the day, it is better to use a headset because the GSM, it heats,” he first explained. “The waves are dangerous. At night, it is better to shut it off. If you use your phone as an alarm clock, you should also turn it off.”…
Contacted, Belgacom’s spokesperson was not surprised by his employers comments: ”Didier Bellens is only indicating the precautionary principles recommended by the World Health Organization. Remember that nothing has ever been proven about the dangers of GSM…”
