  • Is WIFI killing babies? Does WIFI affect health?

    Alarming interview ... not an area I've researched sufficiently into (yet) but I've already personally taking the decision to minimize personal wireless technology .... no wifi (use cable), only short mobile calls, no smart meters either, etc.

    You cannot really escape from the waves though, even if you minimalize the creation yourself - you are still pretty much covered by the waves at all times, unless you live in a *very* remote area.
    If you really want to block out the signals, then you will need to block the signals passing through your house entirely.

    But yeah, there hasn't been a study of long-term effects of WiFi and any other radio wave on humans.

      We can't move to a villege in China, right? So we'll have to learn and live with it for now.

        Of course we can minimize a lot:
        Short calls, not to wear mobile phone if is not possibly necessary (and to wear a clock, or mp3 player, for example), change the wifi with cables (also in locals, coffee shops, etc). We can do it, only is necessary a bit of will and knowledge.

        Here a little support to the knowledge related to the wifi radiation and fetus:
        Effects of Prenatal and Postnatal Exposure of Wi-Fi on Development of Teeth and Changes in Teeth Element Concentration in Rats
        2.45 GHz
        iron and strontium concentrations were increased in the, whereas boron, copper, and zinc concentrations were decreased (oxidative stress-related elements)

        2.45 GHz Microwave Irradiation-Induced Oxidative Stress Affects Implantation or Pregnancy in Mice, Mus musculus
        2.45 GHz (SAR 0.023 W/kg)
        low level of MW irradiation-induced oxidative stress not only suppresses implantation, but it may also lead to deformity of the embryo in case pregnancy continues. MW radiation-induced oxidative stress by increasing ROS production in the body may lead to DNA strand breakage in the brain cells and implantation failure/resorption or abnormal pregnancy in mice

          I'm sure it does to an extent, but you can't really escape it. It really is everywhere now.

            People in France are taking to the roads in Faraday cage equipped large vans, trying to find a 'white zone' where there's no EMF presence. Macron has promised to 'get rid of any lingering white zones'.

            Many of the EHS (electro hyper-sensitive) refugees are moving to spots in the high Pyrenees. It's like the opening scene in a science-fiction movie.....

            The French government is colluding with the near monopoly power supplier, EDF/Enedis, to trick/bully/threaten people into accepting Smart meters, though there is in existing legislation no legal requirement to do so.

            This seems to be some pretty serious top-down corruption, with Prefects trying to overrule the democratic decisions of around 400 Communes to refuse the damned things. The Police have been instructed to 'turn a blind eye' and have even acted against (poor) tenants who have refused the meters.

            The 'Cress experiment' by some Scandinavian schoolgirls was rather interesting.....WiFi radiation apparently sterilising cress seeds....

              That was the oldest things but after the time it communicate with the efforts.
