Scandinavian scientists from Swedish Karolinska Institute (Department for Neuroscience) and Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway are warning about incredibly high levels of electrosmog we are engulfed with.
Professor Olle Johansson and his colleague professor Einar Flydal join forces in article “Health Risk from Wireless? The Debate is Over” to raise awareness of increasing levels of electrosmog from wireless data and communication transmission technologies all over the world.
Electrosmog Quintillion times stronger (1018) than Earth’s natural EM field
Two professors are warning we should not repeat the same mistake with EMF radiation from cell phones, WiFi routers, cell phone towers, smart meters and other numerous wireless technologies, as we did with tobacco or asbestos in the past.
Wireless gadgets and supporting infrastructure are spreading way faster than we are able to determine health consequences from exposure to such new and unnatural living conditions. Current amount of electromagnetic pollution (electrosmog) is 1018 times higher than Earth’s natural electro-magnetic field, in which we have been evolving through thousands of years. *(1018 = Quintillion - a cardinal number represented in the U.S. by 1 followed by 18 zeros, or 1,000,000,000,000,000,000!)
We are exposed to these amounts of EM radiation only for few decades, our bodies are unable to adapt and we are becoming sick. By the time that scientific community gets irrefutable evidence about serious long term consequences electro-smog has on our health, the damage may be irreparable, especially for today’s kids and teens - the first generation of humans ever living exposed to this hazard from their very birth.
It is estimated that number of wireless hotspots has increased 350% in last 3 years, and will this year reach unbelievable number of 100 million! For more detailed info check this great interactive wifi growth map
Lower radiation limits - an absolute must!
Professors Johansson and Flydal say that current radiation safety limits should be lowered. Some countries are already taking legal steps toward decreasing allowed exposure that’s at this point considered safe.
Austria has proposed a bill with new safe levels 10-6 (one millionth) of what they are now. Israel and France have limited installation of Wi-Fi routers in schools (allowed only in higher classes), until this technology is considered safe for human consumption.
Switzerland has one of the strictest rules regarding installation of new cell phone towers, power lines, and other strong EMF pollution sources in high-frequented locations. Switzerland’s internet companies offer free installations of cabled internet in schools, to decrease opting out for wireless; it’s estimated that only around 100 schools (out of 6800) have chosen WiFi over cabled internet access.
New WiFi regulations necessary - for us and for future generations
Professor Johansson states that there are more than enough research evidence that wireless data transmission and all other electromagnetic pollution sources are really making us sick; they cause DNA damage, affect natural processes in neurons and proteins, lead to headaches, sleep problems, higher heart rates, skin rashes and and other Wi-Fi related health problems and risks.
We have allowed electrosmog and electromagnetic fields to pollute our environment; we have to act now to regulate global safety levels and to learn how to live without exposing ourselves needlessly to something that can seriously endanger our health now and in the future
