BE SMART WITH YOUR SMART DEVICES

I became an IT Consultant because I love techy gadgets but it's also important to understand the risks involved

The gadgets themselves are not harmful, it's how they connect to the internet and the microwaves and the electromagnetic radiation which is given off that makes us ill. It's extremely dangerous to adults, so just imagine the effects it has on children.

Below I've gathered some information, videos and reports along with scientific evidence that radiation from WIFI connections is toxic to our health.  I encourage you to begin with the first video as it's short and to the point. Then when you have the time, follow the links and do your own research. I'm very pleased to say my son's nursery do not use WIFI at all, France have made it illegal to use in nurseries and we just need the UK to follow suit.

SPANISH CHANGES TO WIFI LAWS

Your subheading here

The Parliament of Navarra voted to urge removal of WIFI in schools and to apply the precautionary principle in relation to exposure limits to electromagnetic fields whose boundaries have become "obsolete".

The Parliament voted to adopt a resolution which calls to implement the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe resolution 1815 of 2011, which recommends to "review the scientific basis for the standards of exposure to electromagnetic fields" and " set thresholds for levels of preventive long-term exposure in all indoor areas not exceeding 0.6 volts per meter ".

​The Vitoria City Council unanimously approved a precautionary approach with wireless: Citizens will be informed of the location of wireless transmitters are in civic centers and municipal buildings. 

It is recommended that children's spaces such as playgrounds and family libraries, will be free of WiFi or have decreased wifi and wifi free zones will be established in playgrounds and building entrances.

Millions of youngsters who were once taught with chalk on a blackboard now sit in circles on the floor surfing the web on their tablets or phones.
One of the world’s top cancer experts has said the wifi beamed through Britain’s classrooms — radio waves that send signals between base units and devices such as iPads and mobile phones — could be as dangerous as ‘tobacco and asbestos’

Geeky Gadget Girl Sources of EMF

ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS (EMF)

What is it and where does it come from?

The electromagnetic (EM) spectrum is the scientific name for types of photon radiation. Electromagnetic radiation consists of photons (light particles) that travel in a wave-like pattern at the speed of light. The amount of energy found in these photons forms the various types of electromagnetic radiation in the spectrum, which is expressed in terms of energy, wavelength or frequency. Frequency is measured in cycles per second (hertz), wavelength is measured in meters, and energy is measured in electron volts. The strength of an EMF depends on its wavelength and frequency. More waves with shorter wavelengths create more energy as you move up the spectrum.
At the low end of the electromagnetic spectrum are extremely low-frequency (ELF) waves. These have longer wavelengths and come from the 50- to 60-hertz power lines that feed household appliances. They can pose health risks, especially when they are close to the body for extended periods.
On the high end is radio frequency (RF) radiation. This comes from cell phones, cordless phones, mobile antennas, broadcast towers, electrical security systems and more. The higher the frequency, the greater the risk to health. For example, microwaves are very-high-frequency radiation, and they can pose a significant health risk. Many cell phone towers operate in the microwave range.
Bioelectrical signals help to regulate many processes of the human body. In fact, science suggests that every cell in your body might have its own EMF. Our DNA is thought to be electromagnetic too. 
However, strong artificial EMFs can enter your body and interfere with the natural way your body works. This can affect virtually any system within your body, from your sleep cycles to your stress levels to your immunities to your DNA.

Device RF Exposure Legal Warnings

In the small print on your device you will find warning regarding RF exposure

iPhone 7 Legal Heath Warning

iPhone 7 

Legal Health Warning on RF Exposure  

"During testing, iPhone radios are set to their highest transmission levels and placed in positions that simulate uses against the head, with no separation, and when worn or carried against the torso of the body, with 5mm separation. To reduce exposure to RF energy, use a hands-free option, such as the built-in speakerphone, the supplied headphones, or other similar accessories. Cases with metal parts may change the RF performance of the device, including its compliance with RF exposure guidelines, in a manner that has not been tested or certified.”
EHT note: Although Apple says “with no separation” this actually means with no separation between the ear and phone. The artificial ear employed in these tests is not the size of a child’s ear. The “ear” spacer used is based on an adult male ear.  The ear, hands and feet are considered “extremities” and current regulations allow the ear to absorb far higher radiation levels than the head or body."

International EMF Scientist Appeal

215 Scientists from 41 Countries have signed an appeal to the UN back in 2015

Communicating their alarm to the United Nations (UN) and World Health Organization (WHO).[9] They stated that “numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF [electromagnetic fields] affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines”. More than 10,000 peer-reviewed scientific studies demonstrate harm to human health from RF radiation.[10] [11]

Wi-Fi is an important threat to human health

 7 effects have each been repeatedly reported following Wi-Fi & other EMF exposures.

Repeated studies show that Wi-Fi causes oxidative stress, sperm/testicular damage, neuropsychiatric effects including EEG changes, apoptosis, cellular DNA damage, endocrine changes, and calcium overload. Each of these effects are also caused by exposures to other microwave frequency EMFs, with each such effect being documented with 10 to 16 reviews. 

Therefore, each of these seven EMF effects are established effects of Wi-Fi and of other microwave frequency EMFs.
