The wi-fi paranoids have again come down from the hills to fabricate a case for its danger. If anyone cares to do a search on wi-fi radiation and health they will find that at the levels of radiation posed by routers and PC-type devices no reputable bodies have found evidence of danger to health. Princeton University states, ‘It is the general consensus of the scientific community that the level of RF exposure due to wireless networks is so low compared to the many other RF sources in the modern environment that health concerns from wi-fi exposure are not an issue.’
The precautionary principle recommended is to continue monitoring, not to abandon the use of wi-fi. Of course, there is one major adverse health effect that is occurring that could be avoided. This is the unnecessary anxiety caused by the spreading of unfounded fears of wi-fi by the wi-fi paranoids.
But they are in luck. Only the other week I overheard a woman in a cafe say that she was wearing an amber bracelet, which shielded her from wi-fi radiation. That sounds just as sensible as the wi-fi paranoia to me.
But if you want a more scientific approach you could use a Faraday cage shield and wrap your house in tinfoil (insulation in the walls and roof) or wear a tinfoil hat to protect you head. Or they could rely on the inverse square law, stay in the hills, and leave the business of wi-fi radiation to those of us who actually live in the towns.
