Link to the New York TimesThe New York Times science section has a cover article reporting about how school districts are dealing with complaints about the supposed health risks of wireless networks.

“Despite the benign assessment of the medical establishment, Dr. Curry’s flawed reports were amplified by alarmist websites, prompted articles linking cellphones to brain cancer and served as evidence in lawsuits urging the removal of wireless classroom technology,” Times science reporter William J. Broad reports.

The Summer 2019 issue of Education Next tackled this same issue with an article by Kenneth Foster that we published online in April. It concluded: “need we worry about the health risks of environmental exposure to radio frequency energy? The evidence we have accumulated so far would suggest not.”
