How real is this problem?

Bale, Joanna. 2006. “Health Fears Lead Schools to Dismantle Wireless Networks.” London Times (20 November).

“Parents and teachers are forcing some schools to dismantle wireless computer networks amid fears that they could damage children’s health.  More schools are putting transmitters in classrooms to give pupils wireless access from laptops to the school computer network and the internet.”

    It’s a problem that people might be dismantling the networks. Studies have repeatedly shown no serious health issues. Radio waves are not ionizing radiation, not so dangerous as some claim, especially in these very low power applications.
