34 Scientific Studies Showing Adverse Health Effects From Wi-Fi

| |

Editor’s Note: Kind of makes you wonder what it will be like once 5G gets here…


Here is an excellent collection of scientific papers finding adverse biological effects or damage to health from Wi-Fi signals, Wi-Fi-enabled devices or Wi-Fi frequencies (2.4 or 5 GHz), complied by campaign group WiFi In Schools.

The papers listed are only those where exposures were 16V/m or below.  Someone using a Wi-Fi-enabled tablet computer can be exposed to electromagnetic fields up to 16V/m.  Papers are in alphabetical order.  A file of first pages, for printing, can be found here.

If you feel like sending a copy of this collection to the local schools in your area, you can search for them here and either print out this article to post or email the link.

    and every time they change the frequency or add an additional one the side effects get worse.

  • The problem lies with the fact that there is no real way to escape EMF waves. You can only limit exposure, but even then, you have to understand that, especially if you use a computer, you will experience some EMF radiation. You can definitely feel the waves hit you. I recently made the mistake of leaving my tablet as I slept for 3 hours [I plan to order an anti-radiation case soon.] next to me, and when I woke up, I felt as if I developed a tumor in my brain. Be careful and exercise proper caution when around phones and other technologies. Look into anti-radiation cases for your tablets, phones and laptops. Make sure they are a safe distance away from your sleeping area. Use grounded or fiber optic if possible, or if using Wi-Fi, don’t extend the connection and keep it limited to one general area. Turn off your phone once you are out of range of any cell towers. As the phone attempts to connect to LTE or 4G, the farther away you are, the stronger the frequencies that will emit from the phone. If you live near one, look into moving away to the distant suburbs or the countryside.

    • You must be the only person I know whose nervous system has receptors for microwave emissions. Most people can only detect the warming effects of microwaves, but you claim that you can feel the waves.

      • It becomes even more prominent when I stand next to routers or have electronic devices near me. I’ve always been sensitive to sound, especially when it comes to being in public places or listening to other conversations.

        I remember reading an article on TDS about a woman who was not able to function in society properly due to the amount of EMFs being emitted within suburbs and cities and had to move out to the countryside. I don’t have anything near her condition, but I can definitely feel something hitting me, which is why I try to keep certain devices away from me. I even cut off use from the microwave when I was 12 since it was harming my health and even popped a brain cell within me.

        • Sound is not electromagnetic.

          • I know, just wanted to give you that piece of background. I should have also said the same of EMFs as well. Sorry about that.

      • I’ve never worked in telecommunications since I’m only 17. I do have an interest in electrical engineering and electronics, though. Would you care to elaborate?

        I’m sorry if I come across as ignorant; I’m just laying out everything I know and trying to take a contrarian approach to what I consider to believe the truth.

        • My earliest memory of electricity was of pulling a lamp cord out of a extension cord far enough to reach in and get my first shock, when I was still crawling around on the ground, before I began walking. I’ve been tinkering with electronics since I was in elementary school, started studying it seriously when I was in high school, got my First Phone in votech, and recently got my Technician class amatuer license. I spend a decade in telecommunications, mostly in broadcast engineering. The contrarian path is the best one, IMO, because it forces you to think through and vet everything for yourself. We are all born ignorant, only the worst stay that way.

          • That’s amazing! I usually teach myself mathematics and physics; I also enjoy philosophy and classical literature. I plan to get started with electrical theory (with a focus on digital components) and use it to become a titan when it comes to entrepreneurship (similar to Tesla or von Braun).

            I plan to attend vocational school this summer and fall to learn how to fix a car, weld, wire houses and appliances, and so much more.

          • It would be even more amazing if you could “learn how to fix a car, weld, wire houses and appliances” in only one “summer and fall.” 🙂

          • Is that a challenge? 🙂

          • It would take several of you to do it, and I can’t imagine anyone wanting to attempt to compete with you, so if you can, make it so:-)

          • It IS possible; I will most certainly make it happen. 🙂

          • I miss the days when life was as simple as it was when I was as naive as you are. Good luck, though.

          • Naive? There’s a key difference between being naive and being optimistic and determined. It’s better to shoot for a star and hit the moon than shoot for the moon and hit a mountain or even the grass. Life is by no means simple, but to each their own. Thanks for everything, friend. 🙂

    • The Tuna Fairy

      Mysterious Man: I’m with you on this one, and the person disagreeing with you here is some shade of troll, or badly misinformed. Humans are incredibly electrically sensitive, as are all animals, and a LOT of us are showing the effects from it all. I “hear” (I don’t have a word for the sense) wireless routers, and react badly health-wise to high electrical fields of any sort. Driving across the country I always feel the big power lines that cross the road from from the big power plants a good mile or so before I get to them, and a mile or so afterwards. Keep up your comments, you are correct, don’t listen to your detractors. 😀

    If all this research is true then these `Smart Meters` are being pushed on us now to really finish us off.

    • Smart meters wouldn’t be as big a problem if they were UL approved.

    • The Tuna Fairy

      Pretty good guess there. Either “trying to finish us off” or “making lots of money, so they don’t care about any other results.” Malice and ignorance often look the same to the people observing it.

  • Anyone that has a microwave oven in their home and complains about exposure to microwave emissions is either an idiot and/or a hypocrite.

  • cmb

    5G just installed n my home

  • Jimmy Yost

    To hell with all this gas about wifi. If they’re really concerned about people’s health they should be screaming from the rooftops about the chemtrails and about the poisons that are being put in our water supply, our food supply, and our medicines and vaccines.

  • ractivist

    Is it possible to turn up the power on all those cell towers. Could a mad man flip a switch and fry people’s brains? Seems like a reasonable question, given the agenda of a world with just 500 million being the goal. Given the sheer number of the towers if they could just dial up more waves, they could achieve their goals…. scary thought, just saying. I put nothing past the sob’s. Diabolical evil men exist in rather large numbers these days.

    • The public fool system is doing a very good job of frying people’s brains already.
