France has featured historically in its awareness and acknowledgement of the environmental and health dangers of herbicides with their highest court ruling that the Monsanto corporation had deceived the public with its ‘safe’ advertising of their own product, Roundup. Here they have moved again to protect the public, particularly vulnerable pre-schoolers, from wifi. The protection of our young ones is particularly important as their brains are still developing. They are being exposed to radiation from wifi in their classrooms for 5+ hours per day and daycare, often longer.

Here is the French article:
Two years in the works, a new law governing public exposure to electromagnetic fields generated by wireless technology (including base stations, mobile phones, tablets, and WiFi) was adopted by the Members of the National Assembly (MNAs) on Thursday, January 29. It was passed by a majority vote, while the UDI Party abstained – except Bertrand Pancher (Meuse), who voted in favor. The UMP voted against it, seeing it as an barrier to the development of digital industries.
This new law – the first in France to establish a precautionary approach addressing the potential health risks of radio frequencies – is the result of a real obstacle course, during which its initial ambitions were seriously downgraded. The Bill, filed in January 2013 by the MNA for Val-de-Marne Laurence Abeille (Europe Ecologie-Greens) had been referred to committee by the Socialists, before returning to the National Assembly in January 2014, under a watered-down form, and then to be adopted in first reading by the Senate in June 2014.
