Wireless devices, mobile phones, laptops and tablets, have become so ubiquitous that it would be hard to imagine life without them. But perhaps it would easier to let go of them if more people understood that all of these technological advances have turned out homes, workplaces and even open public places into true poisonous radio frequency grid.

While these devices have revolutionized the way exchange information by shortening distances, they have also created invisible electromagnetic fields composed of non-ionizing radiations, which at today’s levels continuously heat our human tissue to the point of slowly cooking it. The reality we are being poisoned by the same tools we use to play and work has been shown in multiple studies before, and continues to be confirmed with every new assessment that is conducted anywhere there are radio frequency emissions.

Specialists and civic associations monitor these studies and upon acknowledging the alarming results, have begun to demand more caution with the use of wi-fi and new technologies, especially in public places such as schools and hospitals. Initiatives that seek to replace books for computers and to bring so-called connectivity everywhere are usually carried out with good intentions, but the consequence of being immersed in a wi-fi environment for long hours actually causes more harm than good.

The donation of computer equipment by philanthropic organizations and governments to schools usually comes with strings attached. For example, although wireless internet is more convenient than online access with a hard wired connection, the signal emitted by the wireless routers and antennae translates into a constant bombardment of radio frequency pollution for users. The danger is that this unseen, unfelt pollution, directly blasts our bodies and when people are exposed to RF for long periods of time or work close to the RF source, they start experiencing symptoms of RF poisoning such as skin rashes, headaches and in serious cases, cancer.

Although many schools and office building are still free from wireless contamination, most places do have wireless access points or cell phone antennae that openly spread their RF pollution. With millions of children having classes with wirelessly-connected laptops, concerned parents and community groups around the world are discovering that connectivity is not something necessarily good.

It is estimated that a child enrolled between from age 3 to age 16 in a ‘connected school’ will be exposed to more than 10,000 hours of radio frequency pollution, that is, electromagnetic radiation from wireless devices.

A child who attends one of these schools, whether he spends too much time near a wireless router or uses a laptop during classes, has no choice but to be subjected to such radiation.

The dangers of radio frequency pollution are increased when, as it happens most of the time, people, especially children, are exposed RF radiation from several sources at the same time. The exposure that a person gets from one single wi-fi network or laptop is nothing in comparison to getting radiated from a cell phone tower, a wireless router, the RF emitted by a laptop or a cell phone, or even the dirty energy of the so-called smart grids, which have been found to turn electricity into ‘dirty energy’. Wireless devices, computers and mobile phones also become emitters of electromagnetic waves.

Radio frequency pollution is a greater problem today because most official directives for the safe use of devices that emit or receive RF are very dismissive of the long-term damage and only concentrate on the temperature increase that human tissue suffers at any specific moment. However, RF’s greater danger is the cumulative effects which continue to be ignored in most industry studies. In some countries, independent studies have found that as much as 80% of the houses register more radiation than on the street. People are not aware of how to deal with what is called Electric Hygiene.

Most recommendations issued by the EU and governments in general are based on the premise that the radiation emitted by any communication device should be measured according to how much does the device heat up the skin when a person uses it, instead of establishing the effects of the cumulative use of that device over, say 10 years. Manufacturers and operators of wireless telecommunications equipment usually abide by government regulations on RF emissions because they don’t really assess the long-term effects. It is precisely the lack of recognition by health authorities and the industry that the danger is on the long-term use what prevents the public from understanding the consequences of radio frequency pollution. In a sense, the telecommunications industry is an unregulated business, because all regulatory frameworks omit consideration of

Take for example the World Health Organization’s consideration regarding RF pollution. According to its website, the consequences of interaction between the radio energy and the human body is measured by how much the device heats the human tissue. In the case of the frequencies used by mobile telephones, most of the energy is absorbed by the skin and other superficial tissues. However, prolonged and continuous use of these devices end up not only heating up the skin and the brain, but also causing cellular mutations that finally turn into skin conditions and cancer. The deceit in the official industry and government propaganda is that exposure is negligible in each separate use, leaving aside the continuous or abusive use of the technology..

One of the largest epidemiological studies conducted on the subject by Interphone that included 13 countries, revealed an increased risk of two types of tumor-glioma and meningioma-with mobile phone use over a period of over 10 years. The study found evidence of an increased risk of glioma in people with more cumulative hours of cell phone use.

With more young children starting to use cellphones and being exposed to wi-fi pollution, scientists are calling for more in-depth studies on the effects that radio frequency has in children, especially because the negative effects may take years to manifest. At present, there are several studies being carrying out with the intent to analyze effects on the health of children and adolescents.

The result of research like this has led the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), part of the World Health Organization to classify radio frequency associated with mobile phone use as a possible carcinogenic to humans. The unknowns that exist about the effects of RF exposure motivates experts to recommend taking some precautionary measures. For example, keeping the head away from the phone as much as possible during a call, using hands-free devices or texting to minimize exposure to radiation and placing wi-fi routers far from places where people tend to stay longer, among others.
