we are trying to figure out weather or not to use wireless internet in our house. i've read some things that say the radiation could be really harmful. do other people use it? what do you know about the negative effects of wireless?

Can you post the articles before I comment?

Anything that is electronic emits radiation and frequencies that affect our bodies.

Like you I worried about this as I have wireless internet and the box is in my Dd´s room (due to positioning of the receiving box on the outside of the house), so I did my research. Here´s one thing among many which says there is no provable health risk.

http://www.who.int/mediacentre/facts.../en/index.html

If you can´t be bothered to read the whole thing, it concludes....

Considering the very low exposure levels and research results collected to date, there is no convincing scientific evidence that the weak RF signals from base stations and wireless networks cause adverse health effects.

I also heard it put more plainly on the BBC, that a year´s exposure to Wi-Fi was equivalent to 20 minutes on a cell phone.

Love, Sadystar x.

that's interesting, as I have heard about this before but could never find any info.
We're thinking about getting cellphones.... maybe not!
