In this modern, connected world, WiFi is nearly impossible to avoid. While this technology is very helpful for people on the go, there are also considerable health threats associated with it. Research from the Global Healing Center, has identified eight main areas of WiFi concern. You will be happy to know that it is possible to protect yourself and your family from these dangers.
1 – WiFi Could Lead to Insomnia
Do you have trouble falling asleep at night or a week up frequently after you do? It is possible that your WiFi is the culprit. This can especially be true if you are in the habit of using a WiFi enabled device directly before bedtime. Research tells us that the EMF radiation changes the patterns of sleep in many study participants. This self-imposed insomnia can lead to more serious health problems such as depression and high blood pressure.
2 – WiFi Negatively Affects Fetal and Childhood Development
Most safety requirements spoken of by cell phone companies and other WiFi-associated technology do not take into account the different requirements of pregnant women. Unfortunately, research has indicated that WiFi network radiation, including that emitted by cell phones, can have a detrimental effect on a growing fetus. It can likewise affect infants and young children.
3 – WiFi Can Cause Children’s Health Issues
Exposure to EMF radiation in utero has been found to have a correlation with the child developing asthma and becoming obese in later years.
4 – WiFi Could Reduce Cell Growth and Repair
Not only have other scientific studies demonstrated the negative effects of EMF radiation on growing cells, but there was a very interesting experiment done in a Denmark school that showed the same. The science students put growing plants in two separate rooms with similar environments. The only difference was that one room had no WiFi radiation and the other had a constant source created by two modems. The results were obvious and considerable. The WiFi affected plants simply failed to grow.
5 – WiFi Can Impair Brain Function
EMF radiation has demonstrated in scientific studies that it can reduce brain activity.
6 – WiFi Reduces Fertility in Males and Females
EMF radiation exposure stemming from WiFi can cause both male and female fertility problems. In men, sperm can experience DNA defragmentation and also slower mobility. Studies on female animals have shown that the same exposure can result in abnormal pregnancies and actually prevent implantation of eggs.
7 – WiFi Linked to Cancer Growth
Perhaps most alarming is the fact that WiFi radiation has some correlation with cancer growth and development. The more constant and direct the EMF exposure is, the shorter the period of time before cancer develops. This is, however, usually a long-term effect as many people are exposed to low-dose EMF every day.
8 – WiFi Can Cause Cardiac Symptoms
Anyone with existing cardiac trouble or delicate health can be negatively affected by WiFi-based radiation. It can increase the heartbeat and also calls arrhythmia.
Protection from Wi-Fi Is Available
After all of these possible negative outcomes of living and working around WiFi radiation, it is good to know you can take steps to protect yourself from it. Laptop, tablet and cell phone radiation shields are available on the market. These reduce the EMF radiation that will reach you and potentially damage your health.
