Letter to the Editor: Worried over Wi-Fi

— To the editor:

(Edited for length.)

Did you know that Wi-Fi and cell phone towers makes many people sick and can cause cancer? In European countries like Sweden that has had Wi-Fi technology about a decade longer than we have, kids are developing extreme sensitivities to Wi-Fi and cell phone tower signals to the point of being house bound because of how invasive they are.

People have to spend thousands of dollars shielding their homes from these signals because of the severity of illness their child has. Wouldn’t you do the same for your children? The term that is being used for this kind of illness is Electro Magnetic Field (EMF) Radiation or EMF sickness. Wi-Fi and cell towers aren’t the only thing contributing to this illness, but they are most certainly the main culprits.

Of course you won’t be told about this through main channels because there is too much profit to be made off of this technology, but it is something to be aware of. Some of the more common symptoms of EMF sickness include: headaches, brain fog, feelings of detachment, waves of unexplained nausea, memory loss, feelings of motion sickness or of rocking on a boat, depression and fatigue.

It has been shown to cause neurological problems. I don’t claim to be a medical expert so make your own effort to research this for yourself. I believe that this is going to be a growing problem as we continue into the future, especially if we remain ignorant of the dangers of the technology we are using. And one more thing to be aware of, even though some people are more sensitive to the EMF’s, it affects everyone at the cellular level whether you have EMF sickness or not.

We are being exposed to frequency radiation every single day, 24 hours a day by the technology grid put in place without really understanding the cumulative impacts on health, and since we live in a town with Google, we are blanketed in this EMF field that we can’t escape.

When will what’s good for business not be more important than what’s good for health or what’s morally right? You don’t see research about the dangers of these technologies because they are far too profitable and because the research that does get cited about safety has been conducted by the cell phone industry themselves and of course are going to be skewed.
