Wi-Fi – “biological effects may occur at exposures below safety guidelines”

How Wi-Fi affects you – 3

doctors found a trebling of cancers after five years in patients who lived within 400m from mobile phone masts (radiation levels similar to those of a Wi-Fi network).

Probably the most well-known is The Stewart Report (2000), published by a committee set up by the UK Government to look into the effects of microwave radiation. The committee was chaired by Professor Sir William Stewart (former chief scientific adviser to the UK Government, and now chairman of the Health Protection Agency).

The Stewart Report stated that there may be biological effects occuring at exposures below the government safety guidelines, and that a precautionary approach was required for these technologies.

In an interview in 2004, Sir William Stewart said he was even more concerned, mentioning four new studies that worried him – including the Naila Study in Germany, where doctors found a trebling of cancers after five years in patients who lived within 400m from mobile phone masts (radiation levels similar to those of a Wi-Fi network).
