Wi fi claimed to be dangerous and banned in one school already.

I'm sitting here reading the paper and I read an article about wi fi being dangerous. It said that one school had banned the wi fi due to students becoming ill following the installment of the wi fi transmitters. However, Health Canada states that the radio frequency energy emitted from wi fi is extremely low. I use wi fi at home and I don't have any health issues, nor do any other people that I know who use it. I don't believe what the school thinks, the problem is that the kids spend a lot of time online and in front of the tv, and going to school is enough to make anyone sick sometimes. Do you believe that wi fi can make a person sick?

Personally, I have never heard of Wi fi of being dangerous. I use Wi fi at my home as well, and I have never gained any health issues because of it. I really have no idea why a school would believe the Wi fi would make students sick.

I have no idea either, it doesn't make any sense. It's not like the electrical towers out there that do cause health problems, wi fi is so insignificant compared to that.

Well this is the first time i have heard about this. But I know that there are frequencies that can affect humans but WIFI is not one of them unless the one it emits is defective and such which is highly impossible.

I think the installation of the wifi was just a coincidence to children becoming sick. I also use wifi at home and I don't experience anything like that.

Did the school install a wifi transmitter met to transmit the single 10 miles or something I mean it would have to be higher that a 2.3 or 5 ghz single to cause someone to be sick from it. I mean even the high powered cell towers make you feel a little bit under the weather when you are right next to them and I mean feet away from them. I have been up to 4 feet away and could feel the strength but wifi normally operates on the 2.3ghz bandwidth so it would be no more damaging than a home phone.
