Over the past few months, a number of health agencies, governments, professional scientists and professional scientific organisations worldwide have increasingly expressed concerns about possible health effects on children and adults from exposure to electronic fields produced by electromagnetic fields, including wi-fi connections.
These organisations include the Bioinitiative Working Group -Biological Standards for Wireless, the Mobile Telecommunications and Health Research Programme (UK), the Austrian Medical Association, the International Commission for Electromagnetic Safety (ICEMS), and others. Countries that are acting in support of the Precautionary Principle with respect to the use of wi-fi devices include Germany, France and Austria.
The following You Tube video features an interesting and highly informative interview with Cindy Sage about the BioInitiative Report documenting serious scientific concerns about current limits regulating how much EMF is allowable from power lines, cell phones, and many other sources of EMF exposure in daily life. The report concludes the existing standards for public safety are inadequate to protect public health.
While broad-based health issues have not been identified and linked to use and exposure to wireless routers and transmitters (especially in the home), recent studies suggest that some people (including children) may indeed exhibit a ‘hyper-sensitivity’ to exposure to EMF, for which symptoms might include headaches, general nausea and sleep disruption.
