Wifi and Cellphones are Dangerous

Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA

There are now thousands of scientific papers proving that electromagnetic field radiation can cause serious health problems – particularly for children, whose bodies are still growing and whose skulls are much thinner than adult skulls. When I first wrote about these dangers in the late 1980s, I was regarded as a madman. But today the evidence is unequivocal. The problem is that wireless products such as cell phones were never safety tested properly – they were just assumed to be safe and although the industry has done some tests, no long-term assessments have been done. Insurance companies are so concerned that they won’t give health cover to cell phone companies.

Wifi and cell phones can cause long term infertility, psychological problems such as depression, suicide and paranoia and sleepiness. Other problems include DNA changes, endocrine changes, developmental changes, behavioural problems and cancer. Parkinson’s disease and dementia may also be caused.

Many schools (particularly in the UK and USA) are boasting that they have boosted their wifi capability but some countries have banned wifi and cell phones in schools where small children are taught.

In 2008, it was reported that Switzerland, France, Germany, Belgium and England begun removing wifi from schools. Now it is back in English schools.

The Austrian Medical Association has stated that electromagnetic fields and radiation accumulate, and concluded that children should categorically not use mobile phones.

On July 20th 2020, the Russian Government recommended the banning of wifi and cell phones in all elementary schools. The Russians were experimenting with radio frequency weaponry in the 1940s and know a good deal about the dangers.

In June 2011, the Council of Europe called for a ban on wifi and cell phones in schools

In 2012, UNICEF found that wifi in schools caused an increase in central nervous system disorders, epilepsy, psychological problems and blood and immune system disorders.

France banned wifi in nursery schools in 2018 and restricted its availability to children under the age of 11.

The WHO has confirmed that electron magnetic fields can be carcinogenic – doing more damage to children because of their thinner skills and developing bodies. The bone marrow of a child’s head absorbs ten times more radiation than that of an adult.

The Council of Europe has warned of the dangers of installing routers in schools.


There are thousands of relevant scientific papers. If you want a full list of papers available I recommend the book `Hidden Dangers’ by Captain Jerry G. Flynn. A simpler overview (without references) is available in `Superbody’ by Vernon Coleman. Also look out for videos by Barrie Trower, a British former naval officer. I am afraid I don’t have time to type in here all the references available (there are many) but I recommend Captain Flynn’s book for those who want references to show to head-teachers, etc.

UNICEF’s own research is detailed on page 164 of Captain Jerry Flynn's book.
