Yes, handheld electronics such as smart phones and tablet computers are being used more and more. But there are increasing numbers of epidemiologists, surgeons and scientists warning about the use of these wireless gadgets because they are finding evidence of disease and biological damage. Now doesn't seem to be the right time to be increasing wireless networks in High schools. Perhaps Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District could use wired networks until it is certain that wireless networks cannot cause cancer or damage fertility. Why not take a safety-first approach?
