Internet addiction prevalence is constantly on the rise and it has become one of the major issues of modern society. The revolution of Wi-Fi made internet access even easier as it allows people to surf the net whenever and wherever they feel like it.
The companies that produce Wi-Fi routers are obliged to follow strict norms in order to make these devices safe to use. However, it turns out that they are not as safe as supposed to and this article reveals a few facts in regard to wireless device and Wi-Fi routers and their safety.
First and foremost, we should look at the way a device is connected to the router without cables. For those who are not familiar with this, wireless devices like laptops, tablets, and cells phones, emit electromagnetic waves in order to connect to the router.
The problem is that these signals negatively affect our health at many levels. According to a study done by the British Health Agency, routers are detrimental to our health and the growth of both people and plants.
Wi-Fi exposure causes many negative consequences, including the following:
- Sleep issues
- Concentration issues
- Chronic fatigue
- Intense and frequent headaches
Still, we cannot completely avoid the use of Wi-Fi and other modern technologies. Although we cannot advise you to stop using Wi-Fi routers for good, we can at least provide certain tips on how to minimize the negative effects and protect your health.
- Don’t keep the router in the kitchen or bedroom
- Use phones with cables at home in order to limit the electromagnetic waves
- Turn off Wi-Fi when you are not using it in order to prevent electromagnetic waves from affecting your children`s growth
