And ionizing radiation is much worse than electromagnetic radiation. It is that scary word "radiation" left over from the "cold war" that has some people afraid of wifi and microwave ovens.
The bigger problem is ionizing radiation from the sun (especially near the poles to where the protective magnetic field redirects most of the earth exposure). And where I live we have a lot of granite. It has been estimated that living in a granite building can take years off of your life (statistically speaking). And here we also have radon leaking out of the ground. It has a tendency to stick to the dust that coats the surface of televisions and computer displays (especially the CRT kind). And X-rays from CRTs (which is why they have all that lead in the glass, so do not lick your CRT computer monitor to clean it).
Even worse is storing alcohol in leaded crystal decanters, where it can leach out to be consumed. And acidic food on pewter plates, which is what made people think that tomatoes were poisonous in the western world in the past (really just lead poisoning)
And all the chemicals that leach out into the air from plastic furniture and carpeting (especially in modern hermetically-sealed "energy efficient" homes), and all that "generally recognized as safe" food coloring and artificial flavoring, and the air we breathe. And yes, all that darned corn syrup in just about EVERYTHING because it is so cheap when it is government subsidized (as in the good old USA).
Anyway, life is a terminal disease, so get over it. I want my Radio Frequency toys.
Living in a stressful relationship can take more years off your life than exposure to EMF. Bad vibes and negative karma are much more devastating.
And do not forget, back before there even WAS man-made EMF, the average human lifespan was only half as long as it is today. Even with all these scary things trying to kill us, we must be doing something right. Just be kind and helpful to others, and we can all live longer and be happier.
Actually, statistics have shown that people who live in areas with HIGH background radiation actually live LONGER. The current theory is that your immune system needs EXERCISE to be able to keep you healthy, and periodic small exposures to pathogens AND IONIZING RADIATION both contribute to long term well-being (much like immunization). Too much of anything is bad for our health, but so it too little...
No need to scare people, unless that is how you make a living.
But there is certainly no need to be afraid of wifi. Just do not use your kindle as a pillow and you should be fine. It is your fear that will eventually take a toll on your health more than the scary technology.
