Cyprus – Policy Recommendations On Cell Phones, Wireless Radiation & Health
maandag, 10 juli 2017 - Dossier: Internationale berichten

juli 2017

Cyprus has removed Wi-Fi from elementary schools and supported a strong educational initiative to educate children and families about cell phones and wireless radiation. They have developed comprehensive brochures for public health and video public service announcements regarding the issue.

Please take the time to read through these initiatives and watch some video’s of Dr. Stella Michaelidou , President of the Cyprus National Committee on Environment and Child Health lecture on their Health Initiatives. Comprehensive educational brochures are uploaded at the end of this page in English and Greek. If you choose to translate these brochures please share this with the Cyprus committee and Environmental Health Trust so we can distribute them.

2017 Directive of the Minister of Culture and Education to Ban Wi-Fi from kindergartens, Remove Wi-Fi from Elementary Classrooms and Halt Deployment.

. Original Translated Directive from the Cyprus Minister of Culture and Education
ehtrust.org/wp-content/uploads/CYPRUSPDF-Wireless-in-School-Letter.pdf
. Wireless is recommended only to be used if needed in the administrative areas of elementary schools, not by the students. However, if the use of Wi-Fi is required, “ necessary measures to protect children should be taken, and wireless access points should remain inactive when not in use for teaching purposes.” Furthermore before installation of any wireless program involving teachers or students “the consent of parents should be ensured in advance” the directive reads stating that the director of the school should send a letter to the parents of children who will participate in programs involving wireless technology informing them for the reason and duration of WiFi usage.

Cyprus National Committee on Environment and Child Health

. “Protecting children from radiation emitted by Wi-Fi, mobile phones and wireless” Webpage (for the link see the original article, i.e. the link on top)
. EMF brochure on reducing the risks to children from exposure to the Non Ionizing Radiation (mobile phones, Wi-Fi, tablets, etc.).
www.cyprus-child-environment.org/images/media/assetfile/electromagnetic_booklet_FINAL%20FINAL.pdf
. The Cyprus National Committee on Environment and Child Health
www.cyprus-child-environment.org/easyconsole.cfm/id/12
is supported by the Nation of Cyprus and “has as its basic aim the prevention of illnesses, which also are related with the exposure of children in environmental dangers.” The activities of the National Committee are supported by the State of Cyprus.
. The National Committee recommends, “Be Precautionary and reduce exposure to phones, Wi-Fi and other wireless devices,” states the Cyprus National Committee on Environment and Child Health (ECH). Dr. Stella Michaelidou, President of the ECH, states that society should respond by taking precautions because “Documentation of other potential and more serious biological side effects are on the tip of an emerging iceberg.”
. An In-Cyprus news article quoted Michaelidou as saying that “multiple and frequent exposure to this kind of radiation, which falls below the acceptable levels of thermal effects, pose a health risk to a developing embryo.” Children who use their mobile phone more frequently face a higher risk at having a weaker memory, attention deficit disorder, and similar issues.
