More details from petition creator

Wi-Fi is an untested and under-regulated technology. Sir William Stewart called for government and regulators to apply the precautionary principle and to review the use of Wi-Fi in schools. The German government is advising its citizens to limit their exposure to Wi-Fi. It is time to stop putting corporate profit over the health of UK citizens – especially the youngest who are most likely to feel the adverse effects of Wi-Fi and are least able to defend themselves.
