RF Emissions Effects
Radio frequency emissions from WiFi are detrimental to the health of humans. Children have growing bodies that increases their exposure to radio frequency emissions from WiFi putting their health at risk. Despite the available research on the harmful effect of radio frequency emissions from WiFi on children's health, the research is still in its early stages.
WI-FI IS AN IMPORTANT THREAT TO HUMAN HEALTH
- The scholarly article "Wi-Fi is an important threat to human health" was published in the Journal of Environmental Research (Volume 164, July 2018, Pages 405-416) and its author was Martin L. Pall.
- The study notes that children have smaller skulls and skull thickness that increases the exposure of their brains to Wi-Fi.
- Importantly, the research notes that electromagnetic frequencies have an impact on embryonic stem cells. Given that children have higher stem cells count, electromagnetic frequencies' exposure reduces DNA repair and increases DNA damage increasing the susceptibility of children to cancer.
- The Center for Research on Globalization corroborates the findings of Martin Pall with other similar research such as the U.S. National Toxicology Program study on cell phone radiation.
RISKS TO HEALTH AND WELL-BEING FROM RADIO-FREQUENCY RADIATION EMITTED BY CELL PHONES AND OTHER WIRELESS DEVICES
- The scholarly article "Risks to Health and Well-Being From Radio-Frequency Radiation Emitted by Cell Phones and Other Wireless Devices" was published in Front Public Health journal (2019 Aug 13;7:223). The article was written by Miller A.B., Sears M.E., Morgan L.L, Davis D.L., Hardell L., Oremus M., and Soskolne C.L.
- According to the article, children have a developing brain that has higher exposure to radiation per unit volume than adult brains. Further, children's brain faces radiation exposure at deeper brain structure levels than adult brains.
- The article identifies that the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified radio-frequency radiations and wireless transmitting devices, including Wi-Fi, as Group 2B possible carcinogens.
- The article identifies that incidence of neuroepithelial brain cancers have increased in the United States and incidence of glioblastoma multiforme across all ages in the United Kingdom are attributable to radio-frequency radiations and wireless transmitting devices, including Wi-Fi.
- Notably, the article findings have provided critical insight on the negative impact of radio frequency radiation that has contributed to increased public awareness on the negative impact of radio frequency radiation.
THE CARCINOGENIC POTENTIAL OF NON-IONIZING RADIATIONS: THE CASES FOR S-50 HZ MF AND 1.8 GHZ GSM RADIOFREQUENCY RADIATION
- The scholarly article "The carcinogenic potential of non‐ionizing radiations: The cases of S‐50 Hz MF and 1.8 GHz GSM radiofrequency radiation" was written by Morado Soffritti and Livio Guiliani. It was published in Basic Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology on 2019 August (Volume 3:5 page 8-69).
- The article notes that children who are exposed to extremely low‐frequency electromagnetic fields have an increased risk of developing leukemia.
- Notably, Philippe Grandjean, Gail S. Prins and Pal Weihe in "Development Priority" corroborates with the findings of Morado Soffritti and Livio Guiliani that radiofrequency radiation are toxic to children.
DISTURBANCE IN HAEMOTOLOGICAL PARAMETERS INDUCED BY EXPOSURE TO ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS
- JM Jbirael, Azab Elsayed, and Ibrahim Elsayed article "Disturbance in hematological parameters induced by exposure to electromagnetic fields" published in Hematology and transfusion international journal.
- The article notes that exposure to electromagnetic frequencies from mobile phones and wireless devices harms human health. Such adverse impacts include headaches, chronic fatigue, heart problems, stress, nausea, chest pain, and central nervous system impacts.
- The study identifies that exposure to electromagnetic frequencies contributes to harmful effects on the blood cells of animals but notes that impact on humans is limited by available research.
- MedCrave review of the scholarly journal article notes that the journal article provides credible data insights that provide relevant information on the detrimental impact of electromagnetic frequencies from mobile phones and wireless devices across all ages.
MICROWAVE FREQUENCY ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS PRODUCE WIDESPREAD NEUROPSYCHIATIRC EFFECTS INCLUDING DEPRESSSION
- Martin Pall in "Microwave frequency electromagnetic fields (EMFs) produce widespread neuropsychiatric effects including depression" published in Journal of Chemical Neuroanatomy (Volume 75, Part B, September 2016, Pages 43-51) notes the impact of EMFs on neuropsychiatric condition.
- It discusses the impact of WiFi fields on EEG changes. However, it notes that the studies were undertaken on animals and extrapolated to project the impact on humans. It also identifies that the research is in its early phase.
- Despite the research caveat, Pall notes that EMF contributes to neuropsychiatric effects such as headache, fatigue, concentration difficulty, and insomnia.
- The article review identifies that the impact of low microwave EMFs, such as WiFi signals, harms the nervous system whose exposure in children is detrimental to their health.
