10. Barrie Trower: Children are at risk (video)
Dr. Zac Cox: Why are children more at risk, are they at risk?
Barrie Trower: As I said before: it is the children who suffer most. A lot of people make the mistake in believing that children are small adults. And unlike medication where you have an adult dose and a children’s dose with microwaves there is the adult dose, but there is no known safety dose of microwave irradiation anywhere in the world published for a child.
The reason is, and embryos are a special case after this, if we look at the average infant at school, or small child in school, I will only concentrate on some couples of areas on the body, the immune system of a child, the child has soft bones, the microwaves penetrate the bones. Microwaves are attracted to water which is the most of what bone marrow is. The immune system of a child takes 18 years to develop, and the first thing we know from microwave radiation, is that it attacks the immune system. So with children, who are not small adults, they are neurologically and physiologically immature adults. The immune system of children is being damaged before it is anywhere near up and running.
The nervous system that runs through the body has 122 layers of protein. There is a system of protein synthesis that lays a 122 layers around the nervous system. It takes 22 years for this to fully develop. So, all through a child’s development, what you have, is microwaves affecting the protein synthesis of this system. Well, goodness only knows what’s going to happen. We’re probably going to get an epidemic of the muscular dystrophy type diseases, later on in life for these children, because of a damaged Myelin shield or insulin coating around their nervous systems.
The other, which is I think the most serious aspect of a child’s development … there are experiments that show the ovarian follicles in young girls. Unlike boys who produce sperms as an [..?…] required, on a daily basis…, girls are born with all of a 400 egg cells, they are going to need to develop in fully grown egg cells and children. We know that microwaves affect the ovarian follicles and can affect the ovarian eggs, we know that there are microwaves, there are papers on this, can cause genetic damage. If you think of a young girl at school sitting there at a desk and she has the Wi-Fi set on it, transmitting straight through the uterus into the ovaries. If the young girl damages the ovarian eggs (and we’re not going to know this for another 15 years) if your ovarian eggs are damaged these are unrepairable. They can never ever be repaired. The mitochondrial DNA in girls is unrepairable. When that girl, if she has a daughter, that daughter will carry the genetic damage, that has been caused by the microwaves, and when SHE has a daughter, THAT daughter will carry the same disease, and her daughter, and her daughter. So we are now not risking this generation, we are risking the future generations of all of the children in the world, from genetic damage, till there is no female line left in that family. That is a scary prospect.
Dr. Zac Cox: It is extremely frightening.
Barrie Trower: This is an extremely good reason to remove Wi-Fi from schools.
Wi-Fi should be wiped out of schools at a stroke. Today.

Safety Recommendations for Children Who Use Digital Technologies to Study at Home
Scientific Research Institute of Hygiene and Children’s Health in the Russian Ministry of Health and the Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (RusCNIRP)
March 25, 2020
(The recommendations were translated from Russian using Google’s translation tool and then edited for easier reading on the Electromagnetic Radiation Safety website.)
The following recommendations for distance learning at home are intended for children (up to 18 years of age) and their parents and grandparents and anyone who helps children study at home using digital technologies.
1. Children under 18 years of age who study at home should primarily use personal computers and laptops connected to the Internet via a wired network. When using a wireless network, the distance from the Wi-Fi router to the student should be at least 5 meters (16 feet).
2. The keyboard of the computer or laptop must be disinfected with an antiseptic every day before starting work. The monitor also needs to be treated with an antiseptic agent.
3. Before using the keyboard wash the hands of both the child and the adult who helps him or her.
4. To reduce the risk of visual impairment and musculoskeletal system disorders, provide a child working at a computer or laptop with a convenient workplace (the height of the table and chair should correspond to the height of the child), to exclude the illumination of the monitor screen.
5. The main light source at the child’s workplace should be located on the side of the screen (not behind the screen and not from the back of the person working with the screen). The brightness of the source should approximately correspond to the brightness of the screen.
6. The use of tablets for distance learning at home is acceptable for adolescents over 15 years old. Before using the tablet, you need to wash your hands and wipe the screen with a disinfectant (wet towel). The location of the Wi-Fi point should be at least 5 meters (16 feet) from the student’s workplace. The tablet is placed on the table on a stand at an angle of 30 degrees, the distance from the screen to the pupil’s eyes is at least 50 centimeters (20 inches). Do not use a laptop or tablet on your lap, in your hands, lying down and the like.
7. For all age groups: completely avoid use of smartphones for educational purposes (reading, searching for information)
8. For all age groups: for reading or completing tasks, mainly use ordinary books and notebooks.
9. Children under 6 years old must not use any computer equipment for educational purposes at home.
10. Children 6 to 12 years of age should minimize the use of computer equipment for educational purposes at home. If it is necessary to use it, the total duration of all types of on-screen activities should not exceed 2 hours per day (including watching TV). The class schedule should be based on a one-to-three schedule for 6 to 8 year olds (for every 10 minutes of work 30 minutes of rest) and one-to-two schedule for ages over 8 and up to 12 years (for every 10 minutes of work – 20 minutes of rest).
11. For children 12 to 18 years of age, the following mode of computer use is recommended: “one to two” for 12 to 15 year olds (for every 30 minutes of work – 60 minutes of rest) and “one to one” for children for 16 to 18 year olds (for every 45 minutes of work – 45 minutes of rest).
The total duration of all types of screen activities for children 12 to 18 years of age, including watching TV, should not exceed 3.5–4 hours per day.
12. For the prevention of visual fatigue, perform gymnastics for the eyes during the break; for the prevention of general fatigue – a warm-up (tilts, body turns, squats, etc.)
13. If necessary to use headphones limit their continuous use: no more than an hour at a volume of not more than 60%.
14. Ventilate the room where the students study, before the start of classes (at least 15 minutes) and after each hour of work.
15. Do not use tablets and smartphones for educational purposes outdoors (in the park, on the playground and similar places).
The above recommendations are based upon research from multicenter studies on children’s health and safety while using digital educational technologies, materials from the Scientific Research Institute of Hygiene and Children’s Health “NRCM of Children’s Health,” and the Russian National Committee for Protection against Non-Ionizing Radiation, as well as recommendations from the World Health Organization and the best safety practices for children’s digital educational environments.
