How Your Cell Phone, Tablet and WiFi Might Be Slowly Killing You…
Almost every home has various gadgets. However, have you thought that maybe Wi-Fi or some gadgets, can be the culprit in the rise of chronic diseases. We are all exposed to the electromagnetic fields (EMFs) on a daily basis.
There are various electromagnetic waves, such wavelengths shorter than visible light, also known as Gamma Rays, X-rays and UV light and wavelengths longer than visible light, such as radio, credit card readers, Wi-Fi, cell phones, walkie-talkies, video-game controllers, and baby monitors. The former are stronger and with higher frequencies. Moreover, the shorter wavelengths penetrate deeply through the tissues of living organisms and thus are a known hazard to humans and increase the risk of cancer.
So, Wi-Fi and cell phones do not contain sufficient energy to chemically alter substances through ionization. However, when there is a long-term exposure to these electromagnetic waves, they may be detrimental to the health. For instance, they may trigger cancer and delayed kidney development.
Although the Wifi, cell phones, and tablets are generally considered safe enough, when we are exposed to the electromagnetic waves for a longer time the adverse effects are inevitable. Moreover, various studies claim that long-term exposure significantly increases our risks for certain chronic illnesses. Therefore, if you are worried about the risks of these electromagnetic waves, there are various steps you should undertake to protect yourself and everyone around you.
Tips for Protections Against EMF from Wi-Fi and Other Wireless Technology
- Always turn off your Wi-Fi when you are sleeping.
- While you sleep, keep the phone as far as possible.
- Turn the Wi-Fi when you leave the house so your pets aren’t exposed to it all day long.
