Wi-fi Health Warnings And Fears Called 'Unproven'

Wi-fi Health Warnings And Fears Called 'Unproven'

When it comes to technology, our health and and studies, the results are often as conclusive and on the mark as our local meteorologists. They offer warnings, note potential rain clouds, but never seem to be on the mark. Two weeks ago I read that WiFis dangerous for kids, a few months ago I read about a woman allergic to wifi, cell phones and electromagnetic fields and even considered buying wireless blocking paint, for my bedroom. Now the BBC is reporting that no evidence to suggest a link between the use of wi-fi and damage to health. Here's more:

"Wi-fi seems unlikely to pose any risk to health," said Professor Lawrie Challis, of Nottingham University. Prof Challis, chairman of the Mobile Telecommunications and Health Research (MTHR) programme management committee, said: "Wi-fi exposures are usually very small - the transmitters are low power and some distance from the body.

The article goes on to note, that transmitters are near the body when a laptop is on a person's lap. According to Challis, we should encourage young children to use their laptops on tables instead of their laps for this reason.
