Wi-Fi is the name of a popular wireless networking technology that uses radio waves to provide wireless high-speed Internet and network connections. A common misconception is that the term Wi-Fi is short for “wireless fidelity,” however this is not the case. Wi-Fi is simply a trademarked phrase that means IEEE 802.11x.
Wi-Fi: a silent killer that kills us slowly
Our wireless devices like phones and tablets use routers to connect online. The router emits WLAN signals – electromagnetic waves that can cause a lot of damage. We ignore this fact because we practically have no knowledge of it. Given time, these signals harm the body. A study conducted by the British Health Agency has proven that routers hinder the growth of people and plants.
Consequences of Wi-Fi exposure:
We can’t live without technology – that’s a fact. But we need to learn how to protect ourselves from its harmful effects. Here we have some advice on how to use the router safely or at least lower the potential damage.
How to protect children and ourselfs from electromagnetic waves
- Disconnect Wi-Fi programs before bedtime
- Turn off Wi-Fi when it is not used
- Replace your home wireless phones with cable ones
- Avoid router in the kitchen and bedroom
In the present day society, everybody is dependent on the Internet. This was made considerably simpler with the unrest of the Wi-Fi Exposure. We are currently ready to surf the Net at whatever point we require it, paying little heed to where we are or go.
However, with regards to our wellbeing, the organizations which create Wi-Fi switches need to take after some strict standards to make these gadgets ok for our wellbeing.
The primary thing we ought to look at is the way a gadget is associated with the switch without links. Indeed, remote gadgets like PDAs, tablets, and portable workstations, emanate WLAN signals (electromagnetic waves) keeping in mind the end goal to interface with the switch.
Be that as it may, the circle of these signs hurts our wellbeing in various ways. The British Health Agency led a study which demonstrated that switches imperil our wellbeing and the development of both, individuals and plants.
Plants exposed to Wi-Fi
In the past several cases of cancer developed amongst people working around radioactive materials like Uranium that a connection between the two was formed. Jump ahead to the 20th and 21st century and our concerns are now a bit broader. People express concern over anything that emits any form of radiation. Such concerns include: the sun, the microwave, cell phones, and even Wi-Fi access points.
It is important to understand that there are two types of radiation.
Ionizing radiation is the type of radiation that can poison and kill you. It ionizes the atoms inside of you and breaks their bonds. This is what happens with unstable isotopes like Uranium 235. However, not all exposure to ionizing radiation is necessarily dangerous as long as exposure is kept to a minimum. That’s how X-rays are made possible!
The other type of radiation is non-ionizing radiation. This type of radiation emits electromagnetic (EM) waves at varying wavelengths but does not quite reach the danger level of gamma/ultraviolet rays. This is the type of radiation produced by computers, cell phones, and Wi-Fi routers. In fact, more things emit this type of radiation than you may realize. Light bulbs, satellites, and every radio station within range are a part of this radiation network.
Why is non-ionizing radiation believed to be safe? The larger wavelengths are too large to rupture our atoms and the low amount of power they possess makes them too weak to emit significant amounts of heat.
If you’re comfortable enough to be around electrical lighting, being surrounded by Wi-Fi isn’t all that different. They all emit the same stuff, just with different properties.
Hopefully this helped clear up some of the confusion you may have had. If you’re still curious, I encourage you to read some of the scientific studies available online. Interpret the data and draw your own conclusion.
