Countless studies have come out raising quite alarming facts regarding the use of cell phones, tablets and the use of Wi-Fi in general. The main focus is put on Wi-Fi, as many countries worldwide have set limits when it comes to its use around children in schools.
For instance, France passed a law two years ago banning Wi-Fi from all nursery schools. Also, the law states that Wi-Fi has to be turned off in all elementary schools when it is not in use. Interestingly, all advertisements regarding cells phones in France recommend headsets in order to reduce the radiation exposure to the brain. The ones directing cell phone use towards children are banned!
This isn’t a concern for children only, as the French National Library and many universities have remove Wi-Fi networks, and multiple municipal buildings have completely banned its use.
Other countries include: Germany, Austria, Cyprus, Israel, Spain, Belgium, Australia, Italy, India, Finland, Switzerland, and more.
All of these countries aren`t banning Wi-Fi for nothing. The science speaks for itself and links it to many health concerns, including cancer. This is particularly concerning for children as their bone marrow absorbs ten times more radiation that of an adult person. In an image from a study done by the University of Utah in 1996, it can be clearly seen that a child`s brain absorbs a few times as much as that of an adult.
Peer reviewed research has shown various adverse biological effects from Wi-Fi, including single and double-stranded DNA breaks creation of reactive oxygen species, reproductive dysfunction, altered brain development, sleep and memory disturbances, stress protein synthesis in the brain and increased brain tumors.
“Waiting for high levels of scientific and clinical proof before taking action to prevent well-known risks can lead to very high health and economic costs, as was the case with asbestos, leaded petrol and tobacco.”

“Scientific data on the biological effects of radio-frequency indicate the immediate need for a precautionary approach to protect the public. Conclusive proof is not necessary. The research has accumulated enough to provide strong evidence that low levels are not safe.”

Experimental research suggests that chronic exposure to Wi-Fi radiation reduces the number of brain cells and causes bran cell death in the learning and memory centers of the brain. Cell phone radiation has been shown to significantly alter brain function in humans.
Genotoxic effects are also a huge issue. A 205 study discovered that 2.4 GHz (Wi-Fi radiation) can change expression of some of the miRNAs and lead to neurodegenerative diseases originated from the alteration of some miRNA expression.
It has been scientifically shown that it even causes damage to the adrenal gland, thyroid gland, and the thyroid gland.
It’s Not Just Humans
Mounting evidence suggests that the growth and development of trees and plants is also altered by electromagnetic radiation. Studies on WI-FI radiation have found morphological and physiological changes, altered growth, increased micronuclei formation and adverse cell characteristics like smaller mitochondria.
“Documentation of tree damage from base stations is made visible in the Report “Tree Damage Caused by Mobile phone base stations” in which he states, “RF radiation effects on plants have not been considered. In the Explosive Proliferation of the diverse wireless communication technologies across the entire environment and almost all areas of life, this represents an uncovered risk” (Breunig, 2017).
Last but not least, EMFs have been shown to alter the behavior of birds and bees.
