The U.K. Government Examines the Impact of Wi-Fi on Health

With some studies saying that WiFi is dangerous and others saying that it is harmless, the U.K. government's Health Protection Agency (HPA) is taking matters into their own hands by carrying out an in-depth study into how wireless networks are being used. The HPA has already indicated that the signals used on Wi-Fi networks were very low power and well within guidelines issued by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation (ICNIRP).

Considering not too long ago the BBC reported that there was no evidence to suggest a link between the use of Wi-Fi and damage to health, this new research should prove to be interesting.

That'll be sad if it is harmful.

They used to say microwave ovens, cordless phones (and now cell phones) would cause cancer, brain tumors, etc. Who's to say that a lifetime's exposure WON'T cause problems? Their little tests cannot run long enough before the product releases to the public to tell.

i have always wondered about this - i think it is kind of creepy, all those wi-fi (and other) signals and things floating around!
