Should I send my kids to school with tinfoil hats?

Wireless Networking 2

concerned parent writes "The kids school installed wireless network in all classrooms, and they are very proud of it.

I could not find any conclusive research on the net, and trying to contact the school to ask them if they did any research on the effects of wifi on young brains went unanswered.

I might be a bit paranoid, but my daughter was diagnosed with leukemia two years ago (she is doing very well, and is going back to school), so just to be on the safe side, should I line my kids hats with tinfoil?"

If you have wifi in your home no tinfoil if you don't then shinny heads will definitely stick out. in all seriousness I don't think you have any thing to worry about.

no wifi at home, no cordless phones, kids not allowed to use cell phone (or be near us when we use it).
