The latest health risk according to parents: your wireless network.

This probably should come as no surprise. But, well, it does. A group of parents in Toronto has apparently decided that the wifi network services provided by their kids’ schools is responsible for making them sick. They took the matter to the Ontario government, who’s just now referred it to the federal. Who, just for the record, has already provided information that says they’re safe–as has the group most likely to pull the next health crisis out of a hat, the World Health Organization (WHO). Sadly, I can see at least half a dozen studies coming out within the next few years supporting this. Be careful around your wireless router–it may give you cancer! Or, you know, not. But that doesn’t generate headlines.
