Canadian Tech Leader Warns of Wi-Fi, Smartphone, Cell Tower Radiation

The former president of Microsoft Canada is among those warning about the dangers of Wi-Fi and electromagnetic radiation exposure, and he’s heading up initiatives to find safe alternatives to current wireless uses.
“This is a real hazard and we shouldn’t wait for the government to catch up to the technology,” said Clegg, who was head of Microsoft Canada for nearly 15 years and now leads a national organization called Citizens 4 Safe Technology (C4ST). “We should exercise caution, especially with children.” – Frank Clegg
Exposure to EMR (electromagnetic radiation) is a hotly debated topic among concerned individuals and manufacturers. EMR is emitted by all devices that operate on WLAN (wireless local area networks), we often use or are surrounded by these devices a staggering amount of the time in our daily lives. Exposure to this radiation is seen by is seen by some as too low level, too short duration, too far a distance, to be of any significant medical concern.
Since WiFi technology has increased exponentially in such a short amount of time we are unsure as to the long-term effects to our health, especially in developing children. Even the slightest suspicion of a correlation between EMR and adverse effects on our health should warrant a slower, more cautious approach to the use of wireless devices, groups like C4ST maintain, and especially any new installations of wireless transmitters in public spaces like schools or hospitals.
