Health warnings about wireless radiation –Bluetooth, cell phones, and WiFi – are NOT new. There is already all kinds of published and peer-reviewed research that has determined exposure is harmful. Risks include cancer, reduced immunity, “Microwave Sickness,” and much more. Animals – including our pets – are affected by exposure too (see 1, 2).
Thanks to Environmental Health Trust for devoting a page to one Nigerian scientist’s research as well as additional reference links and resources on how to reduce radiation exposure.

Wi-Fi Radiofrequency Effects Biological Systems
ADEJOKE OBAJULUWA PHD
Adejoke Obajuluwa PhD and her colleagues at Afe Babalola University have published several research studies on Wi-Fi radiation.
“The advent of Wi-Fi connected high technology devices in executing day-to-day activities is fast evolving especially in developing countries of the world and hence the need to assess its safety among others. The present study was conducted to investigate the injurious effect of radiofrequency emissions from installed Wi-Fi devices in brains of young male rats. Animals were divided into four equal groups; group 1 served as control while groups 2, 3, and 4 were exposed to 2.5 Ghz at intervals of 30, 45, and 60 consecutive days with free access to food and water ad libitum. Alterations in harvested brain tissues were confirmed by histopathological analyses which showed vascular congestion and DNA damage in the brain was assayed using agarose gel electrophoresis. Histomorphometry analyses of their brain tissues showed perivascular congestion and tissue damage as well.”

“Humans in modern society are exposed to an ever-increasing number of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and some studies have demonstrated that these waves can alter brain function but the mechanism still remains unclear.
