The fact is, it's radiation. It's not gamma radiation, but radio waves of any kind are, by definition, radiation. Studies have shown that an active wifi signal near a sleeping human can drastically lower the quality of their sleep, and amateur experiments done with plants have repeatedly shown that an active wifi router in close proximity to plants severely inhibits their growth. Cell phones near a sleeping person have a similar effect to that of wifi. Take from that what you will.

Totally harmless.
People throw around the word "radiation" without a clue what it means.

It's a shape or pattern – something spreading from a point, as in ripples radiating from where you drop a pebble in water or the spokes in a bike wheel radiating from the hub.

It's a meaningless word unless you also add *what* is radiating….

Nuclear / Atomic radiation is harmful.

Electromagnetic radiation – radio waves, infra-red & visible light – is harmless.
You get 1000 Watts per square metre of "EM Radiation" by being outdoors on a clear day – that's the energy of Sunlight.

WiFi & mobile phones etc. use such low power levels that if you buried yourself in a mountain of them, you would still get far less energy than just by being outdoors in full sun.

The only people that claim it's dangerous are the scammers who sell things to "protect" you from it, and the suckers that believe the junk from the adverts.

It causes very little harm. Like, very little. If you're scared of radio communications, try standing in front of a satellite dish. That is when radio gets harmful.

Worry about the important things.

Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram and porn channels are damaging to your 12 year old.

Not the WiFi.

Not sure why people keep asking the same question. Seriously just google it and add the word study. Now if you're next to a microwave antenna array that's a different story.

Every witless device is harmful coz of the radiation but you can't stop everything so use it.

doesn't do anything to you. we are surrounded by radiation everyday and yet it doesn't effect us. there's a reason why its so low powered. its only when its ionizing radiation then its dangerous.

HAHAHAHHAAHHAHAHAH It's not harmful and whoever told you that is either autistic or joking.
