Is WiFi Safe?

Are you wondering about WiFi  EMF or WiFi Radiation?

Then know that yes, just like any artificial electromagnetic radiation field, wireless RF energy from the WiFi router has been proven to have biological effects.

We have 8 tips below to help you WiFi you keep the WiFi as safe as possible

You'll find a cool remote switch and tips for keeping a safe distance.

Why should you be concerned about making the WiFi safe?

Research points to some of WiFi exposure symptoms

We know this from research, people who are sensitive, or have electromagnetic sensitivity, EHS report the following symptoms:

  • Headaches
  • nausea
  • numbness and tingling
  • ringing in the ear
  • sleep problems
  • anxiety

Of course, many people don't have noticeable symptoms when exposed to EMF or RF radiation from wireless devices. The full health disclosure that everyone should be aware of is that there is growing evidence about the biological effects of being exposed to RF radiation.

It makes sense that organizations like the American Academy of Pediatrics have expressed concern regarding radiation standards relating to wireless devices. Many in the medical field believe that pregnant women and their unborn children, very young children, teenagers, men of a reproductive age, seniors, and anyone with a chronic health condition are those who are an especially high risk of harm from exposure.

Electric fields can affect the electrical communication in your body, such as your brainwaves, or the ability of your neurons to fire and communicate. It can also impede inter­cell communication anywhere in your body. Health problems that can manifest as a result of this type of exposure include...

  • Neurological and behavioral changes
  • Altered cell growth
  • Cell mutations
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Cancer

 There are many trusted enterprises posting new research everyday. Devra Davis and The Environmental Health Trust has a great EMF Research  section and Dr. Joel Moskowitz offers research and information on his excellent EMF site: You can also visit our Research section and find links to 100's of research studies.

WiFi Mindfulness Begins with Seeing

In order to really understand how the invisible waves of energy coming from you WiFi, it helps to "see" them.

Here's a great EMF measurement video that shows how RF radiation hanges with distance.  It's so interesting to "see" the amount of Wireless EMF coming from the WiFi and to watch what happens when you turn it off!

You Have The Power To Make WiFi Safe or Safer

It's easy. It's important.  Here are tips to help you and your family limit exposure to WiFi wireless radiation or wireless EMF.

Keep Your Distance  We just attended an Global EHS conference in London.  A really pivotal moment was when EMF Research Professor  Dimitris J. Panagopoulos presented a chart showing how the radiation drops off by orders of magnitude about 15 to 20 feet from the Router.  Proving what we saw in our Tech Wellness video! So keep that nice 20' feet or so, of distance between you and that WiFi for safety.

Turn Off WiFi Before Bed: Use this simple switch, so you don't have to get close the Router. where the signals the strongest It's as important as WiFi Router placement. The simple step of hitting the off switch can lead to a better night’s sleep. When on, a WiFi signal may interfere with our brains during sleep, so by turning it off we reduce  EMF exposure and hopefully rest more deeply.

WiFi Kill Switch

Don't worry about WiFi Router placement: Simply hard-wire! This is BEST! The truth is that giving up WiFi is an option that stops WiFi Router EMF and gives you a great connection. Though this may be hard with work, we can easily protect ourselves at home by using Ethernet cables that hard-wire our internet connection.

Set Your Phone to Airplane Mode: Yes, cell phones and tablets emit EMF when our receivers are turned on. Setting our devices to airplane mode reduces the exposure dramatically as these devices tend to remain close to our bodies.

Add Negative Ions: Exposure to WiFi can result in the build-up of positive ions that can have negative effects on our bodies. We can neutralize this by adding negative ions, like taking a walk along the beach or  negative ion generator.

Put your phone in a cozy place: It's not technically a WiFi router solution, but if you don't feel like being exposed to harmful wireless energy while with your phone, slip it in your personal fabulous deluxe faraday cage. It's completely effective and will protect you from dangerous radio frequencies. 

Be Well!
