Danger on the airwaves: Is the Wi-Fi revolution a health time bomb? - Independent Online Edition > Health Medical
There are articles appearing now about the dangers of widespread WiFi adoption. We all love progress but if it is bad for our long term health, there may well be advantages in the investment of enough digging machines to install optical fibre cables in every city as appears to be the case in Auckland's rebuilding of its central Queen Street.
AM Radio picks up when there is WiFi and a good old fashioned AM Radio is full of electronic noise over Queen Street. One day the internet has a severe outage, and the AM Radio was clear over Queen Street for an hour or two.
WiFi has its uses - where human contact is casual it may make little difference. But when it is constant it may bear a health risk as do mobile phones.
I say leave the old co-ax in place for your local network for the time being. When optical fibre systems are cheap, they will become the norm.
