Parents, teachers and students want to know why the “No Cell Phone” policy has not been implemented in our Schools?

More and more schools are applying a 'No Cell Phone' policy during school hours due to distractions that negatively impact learning. This has made a huge impact on the reduction of radiation exposure our children are experiencing in our classrooms.  The US National Toxicology Program, Expert Panel, recently concluded there is “Clear Evidence of Carcinogenic Activity” and the association of cancer in the heart and brain and cell phone radiation. We can't afford to ignore this health risk for another school year.
Here is just a few examples:

Phonegate, which exposed the fact that 250 makes of cell phones were emitting levels of microwave radiation that exceeded by many times the French allowable limit, resulted in the EU government protecting the telecoms. Testing information can now be kept completely secret. The public no longer will be allowed to know how dangerous their cell phones are.
