Why WiFi and WiMax is
a Serious Health Threat

More people are asking why WiFi is dangerous, and what we can do to protect ourselves.  We turn to expert Magda Havas for this response:

WiFi radiation is many more times stronger than cellphones, and WiMax is WiFi on steroids.

"What you need to know is that federal guidelines are based on a thermal (heating) effect.  If the radiation doesn't heat your body it is assumed to be safe.  This is simply NOT true.  We now have plenty of scientific evidence showing that we have adverse biological and health effects at levels well below the thermal guidelines.

Microwave radiation was used for the first time during the 2nd world war as radar, locating enemy aircraft.  We are now using the same frequencies to heat our food (microwave ovens), to make phone calls (cell phones and cordless phones), to listen to our babies (wireless baby monitors), to connect to the internet (WiFi and wireless routers), to submit our electricity usage (smart meters), to protect our homes (wireless monitors) . . .

There is only so much of this radiation that people can tolerate before they become sick, and people are becoming sick.  The illness is called electrohypersensitivity (EHS) and is virtually identical to microwave sickness experienced by radar operators during the second world war."

What’s the difference between WiFi and WiMAX?

WiMAX is way stronger than WiFi.

WiMAX is a type of wireless Internet service. People call it “Wi-Fi on steroids” - like those bodybuilders who are so pumped up they don't even look human. WiMAX uses centrally placed masts (like cell phone towers) to transmit high-speed internet across campus', resorts, and entire towns. 

In order to transmit over a really large area of land, the WiMAX towers are allowed to operate at power levels way above those of WiFi masts. And the Internet receiver units, which are inside your laptop or computer, emit microwaves at up to twice the power level of Wi-Fi.

So, if we already know that WiFi is really bad for you and is making thousands of kids sick, what do you think WiMAX is going to do to us?

Many universities have already installed WiMAX across their campus -  although some, like Lakeshore University in Canada, have banned it now, and that trend is continuing.


Lastly, here's a very informative 2010 "Health Intelligence" magazine article
about the dangers of wireless, WiFi and cellphones - a good one to give to all the adults you know.

Why WiFi is Particularly Bad in Schools

Listen to this very informative phone interview with Dr. Magda Havas PhD, discussing why WiFi microwave radiation and WiMax in our schools is a particularly dangerous technology, how it is affecting our children in particular, and how to protect ourselves and our families (1 hour interview).

"Awesome certification training!  I hit the ground running (with confidence) the day I finished the course, and my business has been built from the ground up based on the tried and true methods of a true EMF Professional that would have been far beyond me without this training."
   Ross Chambers, Toronto, Canada

"Electrosmog can be more dangerous to you than you think. I was electronically stalked by a cellphone hacker, Chris returned my SOS message within the hour and walked me step by step through how to protect myself right away. I went on to take his excellent training to learn how to protect myself from the many other risks of electronic pollution - I never realized how insidious EMF is!"

The Bedroom Sanctuary ebook guided me through everything I needed to know to finally eliminate and block the various sources of EMF in my bedroom causing my sleep disorders. Ah, to sleep perchance to dream - blissfully at last."

"This Certification Training is simply the best there is. I thought I would learn how to wave an EMF meter around and that training would be very American based, and instead I learned more professionally valuable, global-in-scope, and life-saving info than I ever imagined. I say 'life saving' because my wife, who took the training with me,  is convinced this training saved her life. Three words of advice: Take this training!"
