is WIFI really harmful?

I have heard so much about WIFI, almost every local, supermarket or city center has a WIFI. This is really annoying because i think that is really harmful for our body. It is not only my thought of course, tons of studies reveal that there are several risks for those who use the WIFI too much. Think about your phone for example, it is harmful to talk with it for more han 10 minutes per day, think about the WIFI connection, it is far more powerful than the classic signal for our mobile phones. So if it is harmful why do we put it everywhere? someone can say that because of this fact we can think that is not harmful, but think about smoking, drinking alcohol, the pollution praduced by the cars. I am really against the WIFI, i will never use it in my house, i am forced to use it in some circumstances with my laptop, when i am away from home. We should think more about our health instead of being connected everywhere and at any tme.

We use wi fi at home and really I have never thought of the danger of it. I am spoiled because I think it is great. I recently went on a trip and was amazed because as we were traveling down main highways, I was able to surf the net on my phone because all the businesses along the main highway had wi fi. It was awesome.

I've never heard of it being dangerous. We use WiFi at home.

There are a number of people saying wi fi is dangerous but I have not seen any research papers on this, apart, I think, from an Australian study about brain tumours in children which appeared to be linked to mobile phone use. I am not sure if that was wifi or what particular part of the electro magnetic spectrum.

There isn't any credible scientific research to show that WiFi is any more dangerous than the radiation emitting from your television screen or the radio signals reaching your alarm clock radio. The only experiment performed to show WiFi was dangerous to plants was done by Danish high school students in a classroom with no controls in placed for other variables. The World Health Organization studies find that WiFi transmissions are 1,000 times below acceptable levels. Also, WiFi radiation in non-ionizing, unlike nuclear radiation, which is ionizing. Perhaps VinceSummers can shed more light on this.

I can't shed more light on this specific topic. I will say this that is, perhaps, slightly off topic. We live in a world that tends to be polarized in its thinking. Camps, as it were. One camp is in favor of this or that, the other is against it. It ranges from global warming to gun control to a pipeline running across one's property. Often times, the truth of a matter is not accurately portrayed by either camp. The same is probably true of electromagnetic radiation. Certainly there would be absolutely no health risks if we never designed electrical circuits that generate radiation. Yet, there is no reason to think we are going to die tomorrow simply because we use such electronic gizmos. There are many, many things that we do that are probably speeding up our death, or if not our death, the breakdown of our health. I believe it is generally accepted that so-called high voltage or high tension lines may be responsible for an increased likelihood of contracting leukemia. But those lines radiate enough power to light up a fluorescent tube, if one stands close. I wouldn't lose any sleep or dodge the WIFI bullet because of the risk associated with my health.
