As we scramble to get connected to the internet and to each other, wireless networks are popping up all over the US and are increasingly becoming part of our everyday lives. This is a concern for medical doctors, who believe that wireless networks can interfere with our biological makeup, disrupt biological functions within the human body, posing a serious health risk.

If you are always sitting on your couch with a laptop or tablet resting on your lap, you’re not alone. It seems like all of us are using our devices the same way and for extended periods of time and this is prompting many researchers to investigate if there many be any potential health issues linked with this type of use.
From coffee shops to airports and even McDonald’s, WiFi is everywhere. WiFi has quickly become one of the easiest and most convenient ways to connect to the Internet and in recent years, putting WiFi in schools has become increasingly popular. And why not?
The development of communication technology has rapidly increased in the past decade, so much so that the landscape of modern communication is unrecognizable even to that of just a few years ago.
