Microwave radiation dangers in your home
Report and practical demonstration of Wi-Fi devices - Magda Havas October, 2010
Dr. Havas demonstrates how Wi-Fi connects your laptop, iPhone and iPad to the internet via microwave radiation. You will also learn how Wi-Fi base stations, portable phones and baby monitors constantly radiate microwave radiation. The Swiss Government warns their citizens, and feels that all of these devices have the potential to do great harm if used incorrectly.
"While the rest of the world rushes onwards with the wireless revolution, Switzerland -- the country that invented the World Wide Web -- and the largest telecom provider -- SWISSCOM which is owned (52%) by the Swiss government - have decided to light up the public school's wired networks using fiber optics FOR FREE!
"But there is one catch -- the schools must use LAN -- local area networks. Specifically, the Swisscom application documentation states that the schools pay for the internal wiring and connect their devices (PC, printer) via an Ethernet LAN/10BaseT/RJ45 and then connect it to a Swisscom AG's CISCO router on site. Swisscom then brings the fiber optic connection to the school.
"Most schools in North America are opting for a WiFI wireless local area network (WLAN) that allows computers and laptops to be connected to each other without wires. But the Swiss government prefers -- LAN -- wired networks that do not emit microwave radiation. For example, on their public health website, they specifically warn about the dangers of WiFi:
"Only switch your WLAN (WiFi) on when you need it. With laptops, in particular, it is a good idea to switch the WLAN (WiFi) off as otherwise the device will repeatedly try to connect to a network, leading to unnecessary radiation...and caution should be exercised primarily when using devices held close to the body, such as laptops, PDAs and Internet telephones."
