Researchers from a network known as EMF Scientists, which includes doctors from the University of Columbia, are appealing to the UN to encourage the WHO to develop stricter EMF guidelines, while also educating the public on the risks.
In January 2015, the French parliament adopted a comprehensive law that protects the general public from excessive exposure to electromagnetic waves.
Among other things, the legislation has banned Wi-Fi in nurseries for children under three years old. It also requires primary schools teaching children under 11 to only turn Wi-Fi on when it is being used for specific lessons.
As of February 2016, 220 scientists from 42 countries have signed an international Appeal, directed to the UN and WHO, calling for protection from EMF exposure.
