Very good! Isn't that a Linksys router? If I use one from a different manufacturer will I be OK? Having said that, my BT Home Hub turned my cats brain to guacamole and then ate my toast whilst I answered the door this morning.

And the scaremongering dangers from eating modern fast food click here .

For many many years we have been eating large amounts of sugar,fat and salt and it did'nt kill anyone!
Yea?

I think that it would be a wise move to protect children from wi-fi.
It is only a fool,normally an older one,who would ignore the hidden wi-fi dangers that may only become evident over a long period of time.

When the kids come in from school I say "go and wash your hands".But "it's only a bit of dirt" I can hear from you lot!

So what 'hidden wi-fi dangers' are those? And why would an older person be more likely to ignore these dangers?

What conceivable sense is there in saying:

"It is only a fool,normally an older one,who would ignore the hidden wi-fi dangers that may only become evident over a long period of time."

How can anyone ignore a hidden danger? If it's hidden, then it's not visible, and can't possibly be seen by anyone, young or old.
As for what you tell your children about hand-washing, what on earth has that to do with WiFi dangers?

If you're going to make a point, you might at least think it through for a few seconds first.

Myth debunking forum. We seem to spend a fair bit of time on these 'Ooerr, we're all going to die from radiation/something vague, but terrifying/secret plots' type threads.

The simple point is that when individual and personal standards are low then this can be the excuse for mocking others with higher standards.

I sure many do see the reality like I do.

TalYasis, I posted this thread for a little light relief - the cartoon is funny - not to rehash the Wi-Fi debate, though I guess if folk want to re-hash it, I can't and won't stand in their way. But I'm not quite sure what your point is, except possibly to needle other people.

"But I'm not quite sure what your point is, except possibly to needle other people." - nonsense.And it is not for anyone to dictate the stance I should take on a posted thread.

I have a duty to inform other regarding the possible hidden dangers due to long term usege of wi-fi especially regarding young children.

Many ,who will not be alive many years from now, obviously don't give a damn about using wi-fi to-day but I think we all have a moral duty in making sure that the children of to-day are not going to suffer from future poor health due to Bad Hardware.

Sorry if the fat,sugar and salt comparison went over some heads.These foods may be safe but excessive use over a long period of time does kill.
