Wi-Fi dangerous to health and should not be installed at seniors facility

Recently, one of your readers wrote to say that it would be nice for a seniors facility to have Wi-Fi. What would be safer would be to install a wired computer for general use in the facility.

It seems that the general public is not yet aware of some important findings regarding health with regards to Wi-Fi. To provide clarity, all microwave radiation, whether it comes from a cell phone, Wi-Fi, a cell tower, or any other device, is considered to be a 2B carcinogen by the WHO in the same category of concern as lead.

In March 2018 Dr. Fiorella Belpoggi the lead scientist from a study exposing rats to cell tower radiation made the following statements: “microwave radiation is strongly carcinogenic…should be turned off when not in use…any new infrastructure using such technology should be put on hold for the time being”. The press conference for the study is on Youtube.

In September 2018 the National Toxicology Program in the United States (scientists studying disease), completed a study on exposure of rats to radio-frequency radiation (also called microwave radiation) of 2G and 3G cell phones. Their findings echoed that of the Ramazzini Institute. The studies showed clear evidence of tumours in the hearts of rats, and some evidence of brain tumours associated with exposure to these phones.

It is time to heed the warnings of scientists, even though our fedreal government’s lack of protection is woefully inadequate just as it was with the dangers from cigarette smoking. Pay attention and let your local MP know of your concerns.
