Because it has yet to be proven that it isn’t bad for you, the German government has issued a statement warning its citizens away from Wifi use.
According to an article in The Independent on Sunday, Germany’s Environmental Ministry not only suggests limiting wifi exposure, but also that citizens refrain from using mobile phones, and try to reduce their general exposure to “electrosmog” from other electrical devices. They urge citizens to choose conventional wired connections over their wireless counterparts.
As The Independent has had a longstanding campaign against wireless communications, it claims that the German position vindicates its stance. Even though radio has been in use for over 100 years, The Independent and other anti-wifi campaigners feel that the increasing use of the technology may have unspecified harmful effects on humans.
Over 30 studies have been carried out on the effects of electro-magnetic interference in the brain. Of those 30, only three have suggested any possible link to ill health, and those were shown to have flawed methodology.
