Wifi study findings
A snapshot study has shown wifi in schools does not pose a health risk to children or staff with exposures many thousands of times lower than the relevant standard, Associate Minister of Health Jo Goodhew says. The study was done by the Ministry of Health following concerns from some schools and parents over whether exposure to radiofrequency fields produced by wifi could cause health problems, particularly in young children. Two wifi-enabled New Zealand primary schools took part. The study found exposures were very low, especially when compared to the New Zealand Standard for radiofrequency fields.
