Why we should all switch back to ethernet cables: Wireless internet poses serious chronic health risks

(NaturalNews) While the proliferation of wireless devices has made accessing the internet more convenient and less obtrusive (no unsightly cables lying around), studies are now revealing the trade-offs that come with convenience. More specifically, the dangers that the widespread adoption of wireless technology has created in regards to our health. Simply put, most people underestimate the dangers of wireless technology to our health and well-being.

24 hours a day, 365 days a year

One of the most dangerous aspects of wireless is the “always-on” nature of it. The vast majority of people who use wireless routers set them up and never turn them off. This means that they are constantly generating a dangerous electromagnetic energy field 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This makes wireless technology a very significant chronic health risk. More troubling still is the “compounding” nature of living near neighbors using wi-fi. For example, if you look at the wireless connections available in your neighborhood in your computer’s wi-fi network browsing tool, you’ll see neighbor’s connections. All these EMF fields are compounding all around you, so even if you turn your wireless off, your health and well-being is still being affected by neighboring signals.

Health risks of wi-fi

The effects of wi-fi on health are becoming more well-known. Some of the effects are:

– Sleep disturbances
– Difficulty concentrating
– Heart palpitations
– Headaches/migraines
– Persistent fatigue
– Negative thinking
– Digestive problems
– Brain fog and memory loss
– Anxiety and depression
– Chronic stress
– De-motivated
– Dizziness

People who have reported these symptoms also experienced an immediate reversal (within moments!) when disabling their wi-fi or removing themselves from an environment laden with wi-fi signals

Here are some the symptoms associated with the removal/disabling of wireless technology:

– Feeling clearer and lighter
– Feeling “uplifted” in the emotional, physical, and mental bodies
– More motivated
– Feeling happier
– Feeling more peaceful

The solution: What you can do

Clearly, the proliferation of wi-fi poses a very serious threat to health and well-being. I would also argue that our quality of life is reduced by being constantly bombarded by distorted spin energy fields (see my article which outlines energetic spin, here: http://www.naturalnews.com). It’s about time we took action in our communities and talk with our friends and neighbors about the very real dangers of wireless technology. Switching back to regular wired internet and disabling wi-fi routers is a general rule of thumb. This is the first step to taking back control of our health destiny.

Home Wi-Fi routers could operate as emergency network, say scientists

Researchers propose disaster ’emergency mode’

By John E Dunn, TechWorld

German researchers have proposed using home Wi-Fi routers as a backup mesh network in the event that cell and phone systems in cities and towns are overwhelmed during emergencies.

In a recently-published paper PDF, Kamill Panitzek and colleagues at the Technical University in Darmstadt in Germany describe how home routers could be linked to one another to form a huge informal backbone for use by fire, police and ambulance services.

REVIEW: Linksys routers get smart (except for ‘easy setup’)

Panitzek and his team tested the concept in the centre of Darmstadt by surveying the number, signal strength and location of routers using a sophisticated version of wardriving that was able to fix their coordinates with a high enough degree of accuracy to construct a hypothetical mesh.

The team found 1,971 routers, 212 of which had no encryption applied, and a further that used the obsolete WEP standard.

On the basis of the pattern of routers found, the team calculated that a resilient and sufficiently dense mesh network would be possible if a distance of around 30 metres between nodes was assumed.

One problem was that there were not enough open (i.e unsecured) routers which would require citizens to create an “emergency switch” mode to allow access to the number of nodes needed to create a viable mesh.

Most recent home routers can support such a system without modification as long as they allow for the creation of an open ‘guest’ network running in parallel to the user’s secured Wi-Fi access, that is firewalled from it.

“We found that with a communication range of 30 metres a mesh network could be easily constructed in urban areas like our hometown. The resulting networks showed to be resilient to node failures,” Panitzek said in the analysis.

The team accepts that there are some barriers to the idea beyond the mere density of routers available in a particular locality. Would users agree to have an open channel enabled on their routers?

A better idea might be for router makers to introduce an emergency mode into their products that users would know was fully secure, but the prospects of that look remote for now without legislation.

Mesh networks have been a buzz technology for some years and have found commercial applications. Arbua Networks launched a small meshing system for its own access points in 2011. Although a powerful idea, the technology remains on the fringes of development.

Radiation – How to protect yourself from its effects safely and naturally

 

(NaturalNews) Whether concern stems from the possible exposure to drifting radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan or from every day sources of non-ionizing radiation (i.e., cell phones, computers, Wi-Fi, smart meters, etc.), exposure to radiation is a reality.

The constant exposure to electromagnetic fields results in DNA fragmentation which can lead to cancers of the parotid salivary gland, the thyroid gland, and the head. Kids are even more susceptible, with evidence of brain and spinal tumors appearing in children exposed to radiation.

Powerwatch, a non-profit organization prominent in the United Kingdom Electromagnetic Field and Microwave Radiation health debate, shares further consequences resulting from exposure to radiation, including:

• Cognitive dysfunction
• Failed pregnancies
• Certain types of dementia
• Overtiredness
• Compromised immune system function
• Headaches

Protection from radiation and its impending consequences is imperative as well as feasible through safe, natural sources.

Potassium iodide

Potassium iodide, simply composed of the elements potassium and iodine, is the most familiar solution for protection from radiation exposure. Potassium iodide, taken in supplement form, is also used to treat overactive thyroid.

While natural, does it work? Is it safe?

Potassium iodide is effective, yet contraindicated for a multitude of medications, can damage the thyroid, and brings with it other side effects in the form of:

• Red, bumpy, itchy skin
• Painful joints
• Facial and body swelling

After using potassium iodide for a long period of time, a series of other serious health complications may also surface.
