Electrosmog radiation is an environmental health concern, and has been detected at public schools all across Anne Arundel County, Maryland.  It is comprised of the following common sources: cell towers, broadcast antennas, Wifi networks, cell phones and tablets and dirty electricity.

Chronic exposure to electrosmog radiation has been shown to be biologically disruptive, even at very low levels, and especially to children.  Exposure has been linked to nausea, headaches, infertility, insomnia, Attention Deficit Disorder, memory loss, DNA and cell damage, autism and cancer.

Anne Arundel County students, under current conditions, are exposed to electrosmog radiation for a significant portion of their developmental years.  Radiation penetrates deeper into children’s thinner skulls.

This exposure is chronic, amounting to around 1300 hours per school year, for 13 years. It is irresponsible to subject children to Dirty Electricity, putting them at risk for a number of potential side effects that may not show up for years.  By cleaning up the Dirty Electricity in Anne Arundel County Public Schools, children’s exposure to electrosmog radiation would be substantially reduced.

Teachers from La Quinta Middle School in California reported a high number of cancers to the school district. A study was performed and published in the American Journal Of Industrial Medicine, concluding that the cause of the high cancer rate was due to prolonged exposure to dirty electricity. Here's the news clip.

Digital electronics use electricity intermittently, turning the electricity 'on' and 'off' thousands of times per second, otherwise known as switched-mode power supply (SMPS).

The AC to DC conversion process combined with the inherent nature of SMPS interrupt the natural flow of the 60 Hz AC electricity by creating voltage spikes and high frequency voltage transients.

These spikes and transients are commonly referred to as Dirty Electricity.

Dirty electricity is a ubiquitous pollutant that has long been known to damage sensitive electronic equipment. Its effects on human health are just emerging.

Dirty electricity is a power quality problem and is likely present in most schools since they have fluorescent lights, computers and other electronic equipment that generate dirty electricity. Studies show that young children seem to be the most sensitive to dirty electricity and their behavior in the classroom improves when this pollutant is removed. Many of the behavioral traits that disappear are those we associated with ADD and ADHD. Students with asthma and teachers with allergies also improve when dirty electricity is reduced in school. 

Please support this petition to keep our children safe in school!  Support cleaning up Dirty Electricity in Anne Arundel County Public Schools.
