Almost everyone has Wi-Fi in the house due to its convenience. However, there have been some safety concerns and the conclusion that Wi-Fi can be detrimental to the overall health, especially in children. Wi-Fi has a negative effect on various things, from brain health to sleep quality.
Here are some potential dangers of wifi.
1. Damages Childhood Development.
The non-thermal radio frequency radiation from Wi-Fi can disrupt normal cellular development, especially fetal development. This radiation affects growing tissues, such as in children and youth. Consequently, they would be more susceptible than average to the described effects and are at greater risk of developmental issues. In fact, the French National Assembly passed a new national law banning wi-fi from nurseries in early 2015. Here is what you must know. Wireless radiation has been linked to leukemia, autism, ADHD, cancer, and Alzheimer’s.
2. Contributes to the Development of Insomnia
Wi-Fi has also a great effect on sleep. If you feel like you cannot fall asleep, have an irregular sleeping pattern, it may be due to the low-frequency modulation from cell phones and Wi-Fi. People who are exposed to electromagnetic radiation have a significantly more difficult time falling asleep. And we all know that sleep deprivation can be harmful to the health.
3. Agitates Brain Function.
Wi-Fi affects the concentration and the brain function. So, the brain activity is reduced, and as a result, you may experience trouble concentrating or have memory loss.
4. Neutralizes Sperm.
Wi-Fi is another reason which threats man’s virility. Hence, exposure to Wi-Fi frequencies reduce sperm movement and cause DNA fragmentation. Moreover, it may impact fertility or increase the risk of abnormal pregnancy.
5. Causes Cardiac Stress.
Many people experience a real physical response to electromagnetic frequencies, including increased heart rate. Therefore, Wi-Fi increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
6. Increases the Risk of Cancer.
The exposure to electromagnetic radiation increases the risk of tumor development.
Wi-Fi Radiation. How To Protect Yourself.
We simply can’t escape modern technology and the exposure to radiation. It’s just everywhere. There are so many people with wireless devices and cell phones today that you don’t have to have a cell phone to be exposed. it is unavoidable and it will be around you where ever you go.
Fortunately, there are ways you can protect yourself from the dangers at home, including:
Avoid placing a wireless router in your kitchen or bedroom.
Do not keep the phone in your pocket.
Use wired phones when at home, to reduce electromagnetic radiation.
If you’re pregnant, don’t keep the phone close to the belly.
Make sure you keep your phone at the other end of the room, or on the seat of the car.
Use texting more than talking.
Do not use wireless baby monitors, as they all operate on microwave frequency.
DO NOT use your tablets or phones on your lap. Every inch further away from the body greatly diminishes the intensity of radiation exposure.
Minimize time spent with wireless devices.
Disconnect all Wi-Fi devices before going to sleep.
That's it for this video, i know that there is not much we can do to protect ourselves from this. But we can still at least reduce it's effect by following these few tips while we are in the comfort of our homes.
