Magnetic Fields Causing Your Headache? Part 1
Home Radiation Protection
Dirty electricity and EMF could be making you sick. Is
electrosmog causing your headache?
Swindon is to become Britain's first Wi-Fi town, but at what
cost to its inhabitants' health?
Swindon, that quintessentially Middle England town, hardly
seems like a radical place. Yet it is at the forefront of a
technological revolution that looks set to sweep the
For the local council has announced plans to give all its
186,000 residents free wireless (Wi-Fi) access to the
internet. About 1,400 access points will be installed on
lampposts across the town, creating an electronic mesh which
will allow internet connections to be made anywhere within
Swindon's boundaries - even in the street, the pub or a
Thanks to the introduction of mobile phones, computers, CCTV
cameras, satellite televisions and digital radios, our lives
are enveloped in electronic radiation
In effect, Swindon will become Britain's first Wi-Fi town.
Council leader Rod Bluh proudly boasts: 'This is the future
of England.' And, sadly, he is probably right.
No doubt many other towns will follow. Indeed, London mayor
Boris Johnson has vowed to make the capital a 'Wi-Fi-city'
by the time of the 2012 Olympics.
Already, there are an estimated 10,000 Wi-Fi hotspots across
the country, while 80 per cent of secondary schools and 50
per cent of primaries are thought to have Wi-Fi installed in
But before we all rush to embrace this new wireless
technology, a loud note of caution should be sounded. Amid
all the excitable rhetoric about our electronic future,
there has been precious little recognition of the downside.
For the reality is that these sprawling new grids of pulsing
signals will add immeasurably to the amount of
electromagnetic radiation in the air - with potentially
disastrous consequences for the nation's health.
Some studies suggest that as much as five per cent of the
population may already be suffering symptoms like
irritability because of this electro smog.
The evangelists of change are dismissive of any health
concerns - just as they are about mobile phones - but
evidence is mounting that wireless technology could have
Particularly at risk could be children, who are more
vulnerable to waves of radiation as their brains and nervous
systems are still developing. Nothing is ever truly free in
this life. What initially seems like a brilliant idea
usually turns out to have a downside.
As well as concerns about health, there are also some
anxieties about security. For example, hackers can exploit
wireless technology to gain access to people's internet
connections in their homes.
In several appalling recent cases, it has been known for a
hacker to sit in a car outside someone's house, using the
wireless connection to download child pornography.
Most distressingly, when investigated, all traces of the
downloads will lead back to the innocent householder, not to
Yet by far the greatest danger comes from the effect of
Wi-Fi on our health.
