Wi-Fi is the popular wireless networking technology that uses radio waves, to provide us with
wireless high-speed Internet. Wi-Fi routers manufacturers are required to follow strict safety
standards and regulations. Wireless devices like cell phones, tablets, and laptops use elect
romagnetic waves to communicate with the router. This article examines their safety, and
explains how to protect yourself
The International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified Wi-Fi radiofrequency (RF) energy
as "possibly carcinogenic to humans". The UK Health Protection Agency conducted a study which
showed that Wi-Fi routers endanger the health and development, of both people and plants.
Children have rapid cellular replication and growth rates, which make them especially
vulnerable to DNA damage. They also have a longer lifetime exposure to this new pervasive
radiation than any previous generation. Wi-Fi Radiation – Health Risks Concentration issues

Protect Yourself Do not place the wireless router in your kitchen, or bedroom. Avoid keeping
your cell phone in your pocket, or on your belt. Use caution using your cell phone in your car.
Signals bounce around inside your vehicle, and your head is the antenna. Use wired phones
when at home, to reduce electromagnetic radiation. If you're pregnant, keep your cell phone
away from your belly. Keep your phone at the other end of the room or on the seat of the car.
Use texting more than talking. Avoid using wireless baby monitors, as they all operate on
microwave frequency. Look for the old wired monitors. Disconnect all Wi-Fi devices before going to sleep.
