MISSISSAUGA, ON, Feb. 29, 2016 /CNW/ - Students in Peel District School Board will appeal to the new Liberal Government in Ottawa tonight to step in and protect students - especially females - from infertility and breast cancer.
"I did not consent to this level of risk," said Apurva Dixit a high school student in Mississauga. "The School Board has been informed that our WiFi system puts us at risk of infertility and breast cancer but it's choosing not to protect us," she said.
Dixit is part of a group of female high school students lobbying for safety standards to be tightened since microwave radiation from WiFi and cell phones is now considered a Class 2B Possible Carcinogen on the World Health Organization's Cancer watch list, and children are exposed to it daily at school.
