    Sorry, but this passage...

    ...means the jury is still out. Let's not get too alarmist.

    Besides, The Independent has been banging this drum for years, often exaggerating claims just to sell papers.

    If it's true, then bad news for everyone actually, inculding you, whether you're a wifi user or not. Just because a person may not use wifi does not mean they are not exposed to it. Just like radio waves, cell phone tranmissions, etc. - there's a million of them traveling through our bodies right now. :p ;) You probably walk through a dozen hot spots a day without even knowing it... :cool:

    Except for driving in my car on the interstate. I would have to say I spend my whole life exposed to wifi networks. If it was really that bad we would all be screwed. So if we are all going down....Who cares?

    What I don't understand is how this could possibly be news. It HAS to be bad for you. It can't be good, and I doubt it would have no effect whatsoever. :eek:

    We've been exposed to these waves throughout human existence. We discovered them, not invented them.

    If you protect yourself from all the things teh bods say is bad for you, you'd end up sat on your arse with no electricity or gas, eating berries from the bushes and that's about it.

    Water is bad for you too, better stop drinking it. Oxygen as well - it slowly oxidizes your body resulting in cell decomposition - so you better stop breathing just to be on the safe side. :p :cool:

    Exactly.

    I say avoid the obvious nasties (class A drugs, guns and GWB and such) and get on with life. You only have one!

    Precisely. Our average life expectancy continues to increase so things can't be all that bad!

    Enjoy life. Frankie says, "Relax". :D
