The question currently being asked in Haifa, Israel is are wireless networks hazardous to student’s health? According the High Court the data is not clear, with studies indicating that exposure to the radio waves that allow for unwired connectivity either have no effect on people, or can be a link in the formation of numerous diseases such as cancer. Until a convincing argument on either side of the issue is presented, the Haifa Municipality is removing wireless connectivity from its schools

The campaign dates back to a 2013 petition by parents in four schools who claim that such networks are harmful. The case eventually made its way to the High Court, which has postponed a final decision on the matter. However due to public pressure that has occasionally erupted into protests, the city has decided to suspend wireless connectivity for the time being.

The movement has spread from Haifa to other cities as well, and petitions have been signed by parents in dozens of cities demanding the removal of the wireless networks.
