Maff I was reading your blog, didn't fancy replying there as seemed to need my email address & it's a public blog??

But anyway - the blind rush into Wifi has been worrying me for a while. Avoiding it if you have problems (and for sure some people do) will soon be harder than avoiding chems - it was even installed on our new gas boiler - the boiler talks to the thermostat thru wifi - no one even thought to ask if we wanted it! This will happen more and more with household appliances, some are already apparently wifi'd up to read energy consumption more efficiently & eventually connect to smart meters.

Wifi is in trains, coaches, taxis, hospitals, hotels, schools, unversities, libraries, the whole of the city of London is wifi'd - the network has been designed and built onto existing street furniture including lamp posts and street signs, pretty soon the rest of London will have the same and other cities will follow.

Adjacent counties to us are having smart meters installed for water, gas, electricity, we will be next. I'm told Government is pushing for it. At the moment these will be read by vans periodically driving thru streets and picking up signals. Do the meters constantly emit signals or not? I don't know! I think we are being herded like a bunch of sleepwalking sheep into this, almost no one is aware of the scale with which this is happening ..and the health dangers - some we are aware of since individuals are already suffering - but some health probs may not be obvious for years. The parallells between this and the dumping of tens of thousands of chems into our environment without a thought for the effects is obvious.

A multinational panel of respected scientists got together in Norway a few years ago and wrote a paper making what seem to me to be sensible precautionary recommendations re Wifi safeschool.ca/uploads/Scientific_Panel_o...eld_Health_Risks.pdf
as far as I can tell it has been totally ignored.

Hi Jodie,

The email field for comments is there simply to help make sure posters are genuine people rather than spambots. Email addresses are not displayed with the comments so you can post with peace of mind that your email address won't be shared publicly.

Very good points about more and more devices and even home applicances becoming Wi-Fi enabled. I don't think many people would have ever imagined they'd have a Wi-Fi central heating boiler and themostat a few years ago!

Smart meters are being pushed quite strongly by government and energy companies now to improve energy efficiency - a commendable goal of course - but as you say concerns about Wi-Fi safety raised in reports such as the one you link to are simply ignored.

Again, another good point about Wi-Fi becoming even more ubiquitous and difficult to avoid than synthetic chemical products. I think the precautionary principle is once again not on the agenda because the lessons of the negative health consequences of industrial chemical production have not yet been learned. MCS and EI are beginning to be recognised but in general are still considered a non-entity and a result of assumed psychological issues on the part of sufferers. Had the extent of damage to public health been recognised since their widespread introduction and expansion post-war, I think the potential dangers and roll-out of wireless technologies would have been considered more carefully. Instead they have been introduced unchecked just as chemical products were in the second half of the 20th century.

Humanity will learn eventually...

Wow, this is a pretty thorough explanation of why there are concerns, from the American Academy of Environmental Science.

Which BTW is also a great resource for practitioners & specialists in the US, if anyone is looking for one. Got to aaemonline.org/ , punch in your State and see if there's one near you.
