A school district is sued in Illinois over planning a WLAN without addressing a group of parents' concerns over electromagnetic radiation's effects: I'll be curious for feedback on this. The suit says that there's a pile of credible evidence, and cites 30 studies (citations not included in this document, unfortunately) that connect EMR at high frequencies and signal strengths comparable to WLANs to health problems. I'm unaware of these. The lawsuit also says there are no regulations after 1993 that relate to EMR and its only about thermal emissions even up to that point. My reading of EPA and FCC regulations indicates otherwise.
Anybody up for friends of the court briefs or more elucidation on whether this suit has merit? I wonder if the FCC or EPA would get involved in this suit in order to avoid setting a precedent (with settlement or loss) that would affect the ability of Part 15 devices to be deployed?
(Read the comments below, too: One poster notes a cell phone study, but Wi-Fi transceivers put out a tiny fraction of the electromagnetic radiation of a cell phone, and typically, a Wi-Fi transceiver is quite far from a sensitive area of the human body -- meaning that orders of magnitude less radiation is received. Often, the signal strength is only a few notches about thermal background radiation.)
