Good Morning and Evening
Recently, I read an article in Malaysiakini about Wi-Fi being dangerous. Is this all about opposing free Wi-Fi services to all folks in Penang? I don’t know, you tell me! What is this all about then? Do wi-fi radio frequency carry health threat? Well, I don’t think so. I have been exposed to Wi-Fi signal for quite sometimes, I do not have any health problem. I believe many people’s are being exposed to various types of radio frequency, Mobile Phone, FM, AM, Wi-Fi and many more. Do they get sick?
I quote this from Wi-fi: Better safe than sorry
Wi-fi, like mobile phones, is an untested technology, meaning that it hasn’t yet been proven safe for use. Wi-fi operates in a way very similar to mobile phones – which should be of concern, as it is now believed that the universal use of mobile phones may be storing up medical catastrophes for the future.
Like mobile phones and their towers (or masts), Wi-Fi also emits microwave radiation. Though virtually no research has been carried out, public health advocates and some scientists expect them to have similar ill effects. It is reported that we are all now living in a soup of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) one billion times stronger than the natural fields in which living cells have developed over the last 3.8 billion years.
Though virtually no research has been carried out would simply mean your finding and accusation and proposal are baseless and invalid. What is he talking about? I don’t know, you tell me!! Why CAP must always oppose many of the societal benefits improvement. This is not the first time. Don’t ever make a concussion or decision from several findings that are not authoritative and its accuracy may be disputed. Do some reading next time.
Today, we are surrounded by signals. Not from one source, but many of them. Many experts claim (one of them is CAP), that radiation emitted from wireless technology poses a health risk. They are 2.5 billion cell phones users around the world. Professor Henry Lai of the University of Washington, who studies the biological effects of electromagnetic fields, has this to say “Cell phones pose the greatest potential health risks due to their proximity to the head”. Evidence is conflicting, over the past 30 years, studies show nothing, Prof. Henry Lai added.
In the land of the Norseman, Several epidemiological studies of cell phone users found no evidence of increased risk of brain tumours. Andrei Laszlo a professor at Washington University in St. Louis, and several colleagues have tested possible mechanisms of carcinogenesis-including radiation exposure ten times greater than the maximum from today’s cell phones-he has obtained negative results in every study. “I feel that the problem of health risks associated with wireless technology, especially cell phones, has been exaggerated in the media,” Laszlo says. “We have a sign in our laboratory: “Cell phones will kill you if you use them while you drive.“
Well then CAP, this for you to consider, subscribe to ProQuest or EBSCOhost or Academic OneFile or MEDLINE before giving out a ridiculous proposal. Rather than simply took an article from the Internet and make baseless proposals.
