Are Wi-fi frequencies harmful?


Maybe. A 2011 study published in the journal Fertility and Sterility set alarm bells ringing when it claimed that Wi-fi from your laptop (and, by association, mobile phones) could kill or damage sperm. But it told men not to worry because more research needs to be done. In 2012, Norwegian researchers released a study saying that using a mobile phone or Wi-fi doesn’t cause cancer and posed no damage to health, but still advised us to use a hands-free kit. In other words, better safe than sorry. Don’t use your laptop on your lap, and keep your mobile phone away from your head(s).
