LAKEHEAD UNIVERSITY in Canada has canned a big wi-fi project out of fears that it could cause cancer and rot its students’ brains.
The Ontario University President Fred Gilbert refuses to sign off on a campus-wide installation after reading a a California Public Utilities Commission study. The study said that there was a possible risk of tumours and other diseases due to exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs).
The Consumer and Clinical Radiation Protection at Health Canada is expect to release a report later this year that will say that there are “no identified risks” at normal exposure levels.
But Gilbert said that would not be good enough for him, as some of the effects of these things, do not show up for 30 to 40 years after exposure.
So it looks like the students will not get a wi-fi network for at least three decades. This will probably lead them to drink vast amounts of beer which will rot their livers, but their brains will be mostly intact.
