is full of network computers and new, advanced technological systems. However,
regarding anything that relates to our children, if there is doubt- there is no
doubt. We must take excessive precaution. Haifa
As long as the argument on real danger was not refuted, I ordered to disconnect all the devices in kindergartens and in schools. In order not to prevent advanced technology from the children, we will act to activate safe wired system".
In recent years, the internet media has become part of our daily lives. The use of cell phones, smart phones and computers is gaining momentum among a wide range of ages, where children is an especially sensitive population to environmental effects among them exposure to electromagnetic radiation (non ionizing radiation).
Since the publication of the State Comptroller report in December 2014 on the subject
"handling electromagnetic radiation in the education systems by local authorities and private owners", all relevant bodies were recruited to measure radiation in all schools in the country.
In view of this, and as long as it was not proven that WiFi radiation is dangerous, a discussion has started in the municipality to take precaution and receive answers from the governmental ministries.
