Wi-Fi Dangers – Wi-Fi Effects on the Human Body

Wi-Fi health effects on the human body are commonly dismissed because we love the convenience. Wi-Fi radiation dangers are ignored. After all, we can walk around our house with our laptop and not lose connection. No messy, inconvenient cords. We can keep up with emails and conduct our work at coffee shops, airports, hotels, even hospitals. Who wants to give up this kind of convenience?

And yet, have we stopped to think about the fact that there was no safety testing conducted before it went into effect? Wi-Fi has invaded our atmosphere, without having to undergo any test or safety checks whatsoever.

Since it’s so recent, there hasn’t been time to conduct studies on the long-term effects of RF radiation from Wi-Fi on our bodies. However, at this point, thousands of studies have been done on the effects of microwave radiation from both cell phones and cell towers which is very similar to that coming from Wi-Fi, so much can be learned from looking at the literature on those subjects.

Here are some of the most common symptoms people report when exposed to microwave radiation from cell phones and towers:

  • Chronic headaches
  • Memory problems
  • Dizziness
  • Depression, Anxiety
  • Sleep Disturbances
  • Tremors

Correlations are being made to a wide variety of diseases, such as:

  • Autism
  • ADHD
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Fibromyalgia

WiFi dangers lurk at the cellular level in our bodies.

Our cells respond to RF radiation as a foreign invader. The cell membrane around these cells becomes impermeable 7. This means nutrients can’t get inside—and toxins and cancer-causing free radicals can’t get out. This damages the mitochondria, which causes the cells to lose their ability to function. The DNA is damaged. The cells eventually die—which damages the tissues, which in turn damages organs. All this leads to disease and in particular, the formulation of tumors. Yikes!

How can we ignore something that so radically impacts our bodies?

Just because there are no studies on long-term Wi-Fi health effects on the human body doesn’t mean it isn’t a potentially dangerous carcinogen. Remember tobacco. Remember asbestos. Remember x-rays. Do we want to wait 20 years to find out how dangerous Wi-Fi is to our health? Be smart. Look into protecting yourself against Wi-Fi dangers as best you can.

    I used a wireless headset.
    In the beginning everything was fine until having a vacation period.
    With more spare time and more frequently use of it the symptoms started; Headaches, Dizziness and Sleep Disturbances.
    I stopped using it.
    Also since owning a new Smart Phone I’m not keeping it in my pocket anymore–
    experienced muscle cramp at that spot where I was keeping it.

      Hi Tim- Congratulations for your attention to detail. Many people are so caught up in the details of the day that they aren’t able to pinpoint possible causes of their symptoms. And, while not an “official” clinical study, your body can give you the info you need. Consider adding the protection of a Quantum Cell to your Smart Phone. Many of us can even feel the difference in our hands. If you do let me know what you think.
      Wishing you great health and energy!

             Thank you for your well thought out and balanced perspective. This issue seems to bring out the worst in some people and it is pleasing and refreshing to read this and your comments to replies.
            best wishes

    The WHO has already established reports and research into wireless electronic devices; http://www.who.int/peh-emf/research/en/.

    The official stance of the British Health Protection Agency is that “There is no consistent evidence to date that WiFi and WLANs adversely affect the health of the general population”, but also that “…it is a sensible precautionary approach…to keep the situation under ongoing review…”.

    Also, there is a wide variety of research studying the effects of mobile phones on health and there is no evidence that,  for short term periods of time (10-15 years), that mobile phone usage, which should I point out requires you to hold the machine producing near exact energies to wifi devices, straight next to your head, has no serious health effects.

    Lastly, you bring up the point that over and over again that there is no research into the effects of WiFi on human health (which is wrong), yet there is a whole paragraph designated to the effects of WiFi on cells. Please give me and the plenty of others reading this your reference because there is no evidence that microwave radiation causes cells to become ‘hard and inflexible’. Do you know how large microwave radiation is? About 1 – 10 centimeters in size. Cells are on the scales of micrometers, microwave radiation is much too large to effect humans cells. An analogy is using visible light (also part of the electromagnetic spectrum) to see ribosomes in the cells of our body. Light waves (visible) are too large, which are used in light microscopes, to see ribosomes. 

    • Aine, Editor says:

      Yes Ryan, this is a very controversial topic. We have studied both sides.

      I’m sure that in your research, you also found legitimate scientific studies showing serious health issues, in equal or greater number to those claiming safety. All over Earthcalm.com are references, excerpts, or links to many, many studies, and also we refer to the lack of a unified scientific stance. In fact, we’ve even seen the same WHO studies quoted as evidence by both sides! That in itself, is proof that there is, in fact, a question here and no consensus of safety.

      EarthCalm’s position is to address the question of safety and provide healthy options for those who choose. Eventually, the emf safety/hazard question will be solved satisfactorily. In the meantime, we offer: 1) information to individuals who are concerned: 2) products that thousands of people credit for their improved well-being: 3) a generous guarantee so people have time to try it on their own bodies. If you have solved the matter for yourself, you need none of these.

      Our suggestion is to be smart about EMFs in general and wifi in particular, until the controversy is decided once and for all. Technology is great! Use it for work and play! May it continue to bring joy and solve many world problems! AND… be smart about it.

      Another point is that there is always a strong emotional component. People aren’t always convinced by science, and science isn’t infallible. I knew a dear woman who laughed about the “ridiculous” reversal of opinion about tobacco safety. She was a heavy smoker and died at the age of 97 with healthy lungs. On the other hand, I’ve personally known many others who died of lung cancer.

      We have included another reference specific to your question, and thank you for catching the confusing reference to “no research on wifi and the human body”. We’ve amended it to more specifically point out that there wasn’t research done before it’s widespread use. You may also appreciate reading the new BioInitiative Report at www.bioinitiative.org, which is compiled by 29 independent scientists from 10 countries assessing 1800 new scientific studies on just these issues.

    I took a look into a few of your sources and they don’t seem to support your conclusions, other than articles are unsourced themselves.

    Please take a moment to learn about background radiation and it’s natural sources before jumping to such inane conclusions.


    • Aine, Editor says:

      Hi Jane, Thank you for writing. We are aware of, and have read, the fact sheet from Washington State Department of Health that you sent. The confusion is an easy one. The fact sheet refers only to ionizing radiation. The real problem for the human body in the case of wifi is non-ionizing radiation. It’s a serious enough subject that some countries are looking for alternatives, bans in schools, etc.

      For further clarification, read the BioInitiative Report, Dr Henry Lai, Genetic Effects of Nonionizing Electromagnetic Fields, or Robert Becker’s, Crosscurrents. A very interesting subject, but not a lighthearted one.
