Microwave - and other forms of electromagnetic - radiation are major (but conveniently disregarded, ignored, and overlooked) factors in many modern unexplained disease states. Insomnia, anxiety, vision problems, swollen lymph, headaches, extreme thirst, night sweats, fatigue, memory and concentration problems, muscle pain, weakened immunity, allergies, heart problems, and intestinal disturbances are all symptoms found in a disease process the Russians described in the 70's as Microwave Sickness.
Wi-Fi signals are, unlike TV and radio signals, strong enough to penetrate concrete walls. Many health experts consider Wi-Fi radiation to be extremely dangerous to long-term health. Based on the existing science, many public health experts believe it is possible we will face an epidemic of cancers in the future resulting from uncontrolled use of cell phones and increased population exposure to Wi-Fi and other wireless devices. Now more people than ever are reporting unexplained symptoms causes by Wi-Fi.
From using cell phones and computers to watching movies online, wireless technology has certainly made life easier. But there is a serious downside and many claim that exposure to wi-fi is making people sick, and some people don’t even know it.
More health experts are advising that it is important that all of us, and especially children, to limit exposure to background levels of Wi-Fi, and that government and industry discover ways in which to allow use of wireless devices without such elevated risk of serious disease. We need to educate decision-makers that ‘business as usual’ is unacceptable. The importance of this public health issue can not be underestimated,” said Dr. David Carpenter, Dean at the School of Public Health, State University of New York.
Since Wi-Fi is so recent, no studies have yet been done on the long-term health effects of Wi-Fi. However, thousands of studies have been done on the health effects of mobile phones and mobile phone masts. These studies have found that mobile phone radiation can cause cancer!
Five ninth-grade young women from Denmark recently created a science experiment that caused a stir in the scientific community. They found that when garden cress seeds are placed near Wi-Fi, they simply will not grow.
“Brain fog. That’s my worst problem. A brain fog,” Suzanne Hoyt said.
Hoyt said that nothing prepared her for the rush of symptoms that she suddenly developed.
“Headaches, perspiration, pain in my jaws and my heart. It’s like physical expansion of the heart,” she said.
Hoyt said it all started when she installed wi-fi throughout her apartment.
“I started to be very uncomfortable, and I didn’t know what it was,” she said.
With wi-fi everywhere, from parks to restaurants and taxis it turns out Hoyt is not alone.
“It was like a deep burning sensation in my face, in my nose, my jaw, it was like a deep burning sensation,” she said.
It’s called wi-fi sensitivity, and doctors say it’s a very real condition with serious consequences.
Dr. Carpenter said the scientific link between wi-fi and health is clearly emerging.
“There is a body of evidence that is strong. it’s not 100 percent understood, but it’s strong evidence that this is a real syndrome that causes real harm to real people,” he said.
Other doctors counter that the evidence connecting wi-fi to illness just isn’t there.
“It’s a psychological phenomenon,” neuropsychologist Dr. William Barr said.
Dr. Barr said some people may have symptoms, but what causes them is something else altogether. He said the power of suggestion may play a role.
“They essentially establish a belief that something has the potential to cause a symptom, and then when they come in contact with the cause they develop those symptoms,” he explained.
Hoyt said it’s real and she is hopeful that her life will someday return to normal.
“We are going to find another solution. It should be safer. There must be a better way,” she said.
