Is Wi-Fi Dangerous
Sometimes when I am out at a cafe I watch people on their phones and iPads and wonder about the effect Wi-Fi is having on their body. Sure, it is amazing to be constantly connected to people around the world, but how does our body feel about all these radio waves whizzing around through the air? Is it doing more harm than good?
If you are confused about the good vs. bad Wi-Fi argument, you are not alone. The internet is full of hypotheses, studies and opinions. In fact, in the last 30 years more than 25,000 articles have been published on non-ionising radiation. It makes my head spin!
So let’s look at what’s really important
Quite literally, Wi-Fi means ‘wireless fidelity’. It means absolutely nothing to me, but seems more like a catchy marketing term. In reality it means devices can connect to the internet without a physical connection like a cable. Wireless connectivity has become increasingly popular due to the rise in the number of mobile workers. Also it is growing with society’s need to be in constant contact with each other.
How does it work?
When you connect to a wireless network you are connecting to a router, a device that emits low power radio signals or electromagnetic radiation. These radio signals operate on a similar frequency to microwave ovens.
The debate rages about whether or not these radio waves are harmful.
Some say there is no real evidence to support the argument that Wi-Fi has detrimental health benefits. Wi-Fi works on shorter or non-ionising wavelengths which studies say tend not to be dangerous.
The main gap in research seems to be around children. Unfortunately, children tend to be more susceptible to radiation. Their skulls are smaller, thinner and their brain tissue is more absorbent. And the effects of wi-fi radiation may not show up for many years.
Symptoms of Wi-Fi Exposure
Yet we hear all the time about how Wi-Fi affects people. Some say it is related to infertility, sleep disorders, abnormal cell development, brain tumours and cardiac difficulties. And the list goes on.
The difference in the effect on our body between Wi-Fi and other forms of radiation appears to be length of exposure. Think about it – your Wi-Fi network is constantly on. So are the Wi-Fi networks of your neighbours, the local coffee shop and library.
It seems that the constant exposure is what makes it (allegedly) more dangerous. There is no down time for our bodies to escape this radiation.
With all this in mind, I encourage you all to make your own decision. Personally I have been using Safespace products since 2001 and wouldn’t live without them. They offer protection from the toxins in our environment, including electromagnetic fields and radiation.
You can buy them online here http://www.safespaceprotection.com/safespace-emf-solutions.aspx. I do not receive any commission from recommending these products.
Falling short of wearing a tin foil hat, here are a few other precautions we can all take.
- Turn off your Wi-Fi network when it is not in use
- Use a computer that is hard wired to the internet whenever possible
- Sit at least 1m away from your Wi-Fi router
Rather than texting your friends on Facebook, sit down and have a good old-fashioned conversation with them!
