We are constantly being bombarded with new wireless technology, while it is all quite amazing have you ever stopped to think what it could be doing to your health? Could Wi-Fi be a bad thing?
We ae able to do just about anything with dealing with wires. This is extremely convenient but did you know that it is also exposing you to some levels of electromagnetic radiation? We are being exposed literally 24/7. Some people think Wi-Fi is completely safe while others think that it could cause severe issues. Wi-Fi is not something that causes diagnosable illnesses.
This is a big issue. Yet, for some reason, most of us choose to ignore the fact that there is an issue at all. Wi-Fi can actually interfere with our bodily functions. This is something that can over time progress into things like cancer and neurodegenerative diseases; long-term exposure has limitless possible outcomes.
It is almost impossible right now to show that increased wireless signal exposure is able to cause these diseases, because of the large amount of time it takes for them to develop. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC)wireless radiation is a class 2B possible carcinogen.While we do not know much this far about the effects of wireless radiation there are a few studies we can go by.
Rodent studies have found that wireless radiation causes cancer and can worsen cancer prognosis. This coming along with changes in blood-brain barrier. While the human studies have shown to be inconclusive at this time if it can do something like that to a rat I have no doubt over time it could do the same to a human.
Here are the best five ways (Options) to reduce your exposure:
- Turn off your Wi-Fi before you go to bed. You’re not using it while you sleep so this is the best time to give it a break.
- Do not upgrade as frequently as others do.
- Turn your devices on airplane mode when not in use.
- Turn the router on only when in use.
- Cut out Wi-Fi altogether.
I know not all of these things are possible for every person but following at least number one will give your body a much-needed break from the constant radiation exposure.
