The Wi-Fi abbreviation stands for wireless networks that provide you with a connection to many devices without those boring entangled cables. Wi-Fi is everywhere around us, even in places where it is not necessarily needed!
It is most suitable for mobile phones, and companies who make these specific instructions for the services they offer so that they do not put our health at risk.
However, things are not as simple as they seem. Believe it or not, Wi-Fi kills us slowly without any warning!
Wireless devices like tablets and phones connect online via routers. This device emits WLAN signals, or electromagnetic waves which, unfortunately, can cause serious damage to human body.
Most people ignore this, usually due to their lack of knowledge regarding this issue. Over time, these signals affect the body and harm its vital functions. The British Health Agency conducted a study according to which routers affect the growth of both people and plants.
Wi-Fi exposure affects your health in a way that it makes you feel or have:
- chronic fatigue
- poor concentration
- frequent and severe headaches
- sleeping disorders
Yet, modern world cannot survive without technology. What you should do is learn how to protect yourselves from the dangers it brings.
We give you some useful tips on how to use your router safely or at least decrease any potential danger.
How to protect your family from WLAN signals
- disconnect any Wi-Fi program before you go to bed
- turn off your Wi-Fi whenever you do not need it
- if possible, replace home wireless phones with cable devices
- do not keep your router in your kitchen or bedroom
Health risks of Wi-Fi that is wireless networks
My Wi-Fi uses the same radio frequency as his microwave oven. Does that mean that Wi-Fi is dangerous to my health?
Question: And if it is possible for a microwave oven to interfere with Wi-Fi signals (because they operate at the same frequency), is Wi-Fi then not dangerous to health? Would having Wi-Fi in the home not be like leaving your microwave door open?
Answer: This is a question that comes up from time to time, and the short answer is NO.
In fact, we could rephrase this question and pretend that you’d asked about baby alarms, radio-controlled cars, cordless (DECT) phones, Bluetooth headsets, security alarms and loads of other things that operate in the same unlicensed radio frequency band without causing concern. Is having a baby alarm in your home not like leaving your microwave door open?
The longer answer is that the intensity of a Wi-Fi signal is around 100,000 times less than a microwave oven. The oven is a targeted device that operates at very high voltages and short distances.
Wi-Fi routers operate at very low voltages, broadcast in all directions, and are used at relatively long distances. Since radio waves follow the inverse square law – like light, sound and gravity – then each time you double the distance, you get only a quarter of the energy.
In other words, the signal strength falls off very rapidly. At normal operating distances, Wi-Fi’s intensity is generally so low that it’s not worth worrying about: it’s just part of the “smog” that is generated by radio and TV signals, AC mains wiring, the motors in home appliances, and the universe in general. (The wavelength of Wi-Fi signals is the same as the cosmic background radiation: 12cm. If you’re worried, don’t go outside.)
The electromagnetic spectrum stretches all the way from very long wave radio frequencies to very short wave gamma rays, with visible light somewhere in between. We know that types of ionizing radiation with wavelengths shorter than light tend to be dangerous.
