The WI-FI signal and its effects on the human body

in OCD7 months ago (edited)


Now that Wi-Fi is almost ubiquitous in homes, hotels, cafes, airports, and airplanes, more and more people are researching its effects on the human body. This is because some research says that it is harmful.

Many people experience negative effects and have reported feeling unwell after prolonged exposure to a Wi-Fi network. However, it should be noted that many of these symptoms are subjective and can be caused by many things; for example, some people experience vertigo when exposed to high-frequency sound.

The rhetoric among many researchers is that the potential risks of Wi-Fi are real and these risks come from either a wireless router, mobile phone or antennas. With that said, there are precautions we can take to limit our exposure to electromagnetic fields while using these devices at any time or place.

OUR HEALTH! the most important

An average person checks their phone about 150 times a day. With so many interactions with technology, it's no wonder some people are concerned about the effects of Wi-Fi and mobile phones on our health.

Several studies have raised concerns about the potential negative impact of wireless devices on users, but these are often related to prolonged use or exposure in confined spaces.

There are studies that have found a direct relationship between Wi-Fi and risks to health and the environment. Nothing is conclusive yet, so many people remain cautious when it comes to new technologies like 5G, which could pose a risk to our health.

Wi-Fi signals and mobile phones work on the same frequency as radio waves. And although both are quite harmless in small doses, lately there is a lot of concern about what prolonged exposure and the elevation of the intensity of these signals can do to us. That is why you have to know everything there is to know about WiFi and its effects on the human body before continuing to use it so frequently.


Digital technologies have become an integral part of our lives. However, the widespread use of wireless devices, such as smartphones and Wi-Fi routers, has led to widespread exposure to Electromagnetic Field (EMF) frequencies.

But what are EMFs? How do they affect health? Are there any precautions we should take when using Wi-Fi or mobile phones? Read on to learn more about electromagnetic frequencies and their impact on human biology.

What is electromagnetic radiation? EMFs are radiation produced by various types of electrical equipment, such as power lines, electrical appliances, and Wi-Fi routers. It is also created by natural phenomena such as lightning and solar flares from the sun. EMFs are invisible and travel in the form of waves. The frequency of the wave determines its ability to induce electrical currents in the tissues of the body. The higher the frequency, the greater the amount of energy it carries. In the human body, EMFs interact with tissues and cells. They create positive and negative charges, which collide with the molecules inside the cells.

Many studies have been conducted to determine the impact of these electromagnetic fields on human health. The results are not encouraging. Long-term exposure to high levels of EMFs is said to disrupt sleep cycles, EMFs emitted from electronic devices can interfere with the body's production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates the circadian rhythm.

Consequently, people exposed to EMFs at night may experience sleep deprivation and insomnia. Some studies have linked EMFs to low sperm production and low fertility in men and women.

EMFs can cause headaches, migraines, and other neurological disorders. They have been related to the development of neurodegenerative diseases. Other studies have shown that EMFs can alter the biological mechanisms that regulate the endocrine system, made up of glands that secrete hormones that regulate body functions.


The human body is made up of 70% water. This means that when there is an electromagnetic field, its energy is absorbed by the water in the cells.

Water molecules are polarized with positive and negative charges. The Wi-Fi signal is carried by radio waves with a frequency of 2.4 gigahertz (GHz).

This electromagnetic radiation can easily pass through the body and is capable of disturbing cellular activities. The 2.4 GHz frequency is present in the same range as that of microwave ovens. While microwaves are used to cook food and are capable of heating it, radio waves are capable of affecting living cells.

2020 and the massification of 5G

The year 2020 not only brought with it the COVID-19 pandemic, but also a new technological generation of telecommunications known as 5G and which, as its name indicates, doubles the signal intensity from 2.4Ghz to 5.8Ghz.

Although this technology already existed before 2020, only some manufacturers had already installed wireless routers with 5.8Ghz signals for homes and offices.

It is a fact that the first city in the world to have a 5G wireless communications network was Wuhan, shortly after the first cases appeared and few doctors in the world have taken this environmental factor into account as a co-factor of the disease, but Dr. Andrew Kauffman from the University of Missouri did it where he explained in a video-conference in March 2020 that there was a possibility that the COVID-19 disease has to do with the electromagnetic radiation of the recently installed 5G network.

To put you in perspective, the waves of the 2.4Ghz signals are twice as long as those of 5G, so they have more range in transmission distance, the waves of 5G are smaller and travel in the air much faster but They have less range, so to cover the entire spectrum of a 2.4Ghz antenna, 5G would need up to 5 times more transmission antennas.

All of this results in the EMF radiation exposure being increased up to 5 times.

On October 26, 2021, two scientists Beverly Rubik y Robert Brown published a study in the "National Library of Medicine" which belongs to the "Nacional Center for Biotechnology Information" and this in turn to the "National Institute of Health" of the government of the United States, where they show evidence of the connection between wireless communications including 5g and COVID-19.

Mobile phone towers and devices use many frequencies, including microwave, to transmit voice and data. When a mobile phone call is made, the mobile phone generates EMC. These EMFs can be absorbed by the human body, causing changes in brain activity.

People who use their mobile phones for long periods of time are at increased risk of developing brain tumors. A study conducted by the University of California at Irvine has shown that long-term exposure to EMFs can increase the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.

Another study published in the Journal of Affective Disorders has shown that people who use their mobile phones for 30 minutes a day or more are at increased risk of developing depression.


The effects of EMFs on the human body depend on many factors, including the intensity and duration of exposure, the distance between the source of the EMF and the person, and individual factors such as age, health, diet, and sleep patterns. There are many ways to reduce the impact of EMF exposure, including:

  • Keep devices away: Turn off Wi-Fi routers when not in use and keep mobile phones away from your head and body.

  • Use headphones when using a mobile phone: When using a mobile phone, keep the device away from your head and use headphones to reduce the amount of exposure, especially when the phone is charging.

  • Reduce the number of EMF-emitting devices: Limit the use of EMF-emitting devices, especially in the bedroom.

  • Avoid using devices at night: Turn off all electronic devices at least one hour before bedtime.

  • Practice good sleep hygiene: Get enough sleep, avoid eating and drinking before bedtime, exercise regularly, and take time to unwind.

  • Protect your home wiring from EMF, and you can also keep your distance from sources of high EMF exposure.

  • Grounding: While we are at home it is possible to walk barefoot and make contact with the ground, but if we are exposed to long hours of radiation, for example in the office, we can wear leather shoes that allow grounding, in which case we must avoid shoes with synthetic sole.

  • Put the sleeping bed in contact with the ground: The mattress is perforated and making contact with its skeleton through a wire or cable makes it touch the floor.


Since most of us do not have professional tools for measuring and monitoring the Electromagnetic Fields that surround us, there is no other alternative than to use this tool that we all have at hand "OUR #SMARTPHONES".

Most people do not know it, but the mobile phone can have up to 14 sensors, with which we can do the task of scanning our environment wherever we are.

These apps that I describe below are part of the counter-measure strategies that we can do to counteract high exposure to radiation.


This app allows you to get an exposure index of the signals at your fingertips. Includes radiation by telephone operators, Wifi and Bluetooth. The index ranges from 0 to 100 and is described in three exposure levels (Low from 0 to 43), (Moderate from 43 to 70) and (Strong from 70 to 100).

Low exposure (< 0.01 V/m):
Well below the most restrictive official recommendations. Suitable for rest areas (such as bedrooms) or where children spend time, sensitive people and anyone looking for a place with little exposure to microwaves and where communication is not essential.

Moderate exposure (between 0.01 V/m and 0.3 V/m):
Suitable for most people, especially in busy areas (such as offices) when an online connection is needed, but without exposure excessive. However, this level may be too high for some sensitive people.

Strong (high) exposure (>0.3 V/m)
Some sensitive people experience various symptoms (migraine, stress, sleep problems, tinnitus, etc.) if exposed for a long time. Minimize the time you spend at this level of exposure and try to adapt your environment to reduce exposure.

Red Moon

Red Moon is a totally necessary app for those of us who spend many hours watching on our mobile, it allows us to eliminate the blue dots on the screen in order to reduce the amount of harmful light that affects the production of Melatonin which is the cause to produce sleep. Knowing that electromagnetic radiation also contributes to this, by taking these measures we can avoid insomnia and sleep the necessary hours.

The biggest conclusion I can draw from topics where there are different opinions is that: "The objective of the debate is not to be right, but rather it is progress" and that in the end "You cannot avoid the truth"



Hi @elguarodigital. I see you're new on Hive, so let me drop you a few suggestions to help you navigate better on our platform.

We have different communities on Hive and we're encouraging users to post in the right community based on the topic of the post. This post for example would fit better in STEMGeeks community.

OCD is for topics that don't fit in any other community and should be used when you don't find a niche community for your post.

Here's a guide I put together to help you learn about how communities work and why you should use them -> Communities Explained - Newbie Guide.

Once you posted your post in the right community, you can then cross post it to OCD community. Here's a guide about cross posting.

Please don't delete any post with the purpose of reposting it in another community as that can be considered abuse! Leave this post here, you'll get it right next time

Thank you very much @erikah for your recommendations, I have already joined the StemGeeks community, I hope to do it correctly next time.

Reposting previous posts or parts of them without significant additional original content/changes is considered fraud and exploitation of the "Hive Reward Pool".

Publishing such content may result in the account being Blacklisted.
Please refrain from copying and pasting previous posts going forward.

If you believe this comment is in error, please contact us in #appeals in Discord.

Of course I consider this comment as a error.

How can a simple translation from Spanish to English of a post of my own authorship be considered a fraud?

Is it more important for you @hivewacthers that the post has been translated by its own author or that the post "An original content" that has taken many days of investigation has not been rewarded enough?

First of all I have followers who speak English and Spanish.
And secondly, I am against posts with double language because that makes it very difficult to read.

Everything goes through common sense, I am not violating any rule in general of @hive

It cannot be that the translation of an article by its own author be considerate a fraud and that an empty comment from a user is rewarded more than the article itself with many days of research and more of 2000 words, it is no fair.

If you consider my post a fraud, it is because the hive ecosystem does not work, and especially the reward system.

There is no way to prove that the article was not auto-translated using a tool.

Please don't recycle the previous content in one of 6500 languages as it will be considered an attempt to defraud by double dipping. Please decline the reward for recycled posts.

Any content that is recycled could be considered spam and an attempt to exploit the Hive's reward pool. It does not matter that it was (auto) translated to one of 6500 languages.

What is spam?
Spam is any form of unsolicited communication that is sent in bulk (Unsolicited Bulk Email, or UBE). Its most frequent form is an advertising email sent to a large number of addresses (unsolicited advertising email, or UCE), but "spamming" also exists through instant messages, text messages (SMS), social networks or even voice messages. Sending spam is illegal in most jurisdictions.

One of the most common ways to spread unsolicited content is through botnets, large networks of infected "zombie" devices. Chain and scam emails are also sometimes considered spam, although they differ in that they are usually forwarded by people with good intentions. Source:

What is an exploit?
An exploit is a computer program, piece of software, or script that takes advantage of a bug or vulnerability to cause unintended or unexpected behavior in software, hardware, or any electronic device. Source:

Cherry-picking parts of definitions/descriptions is a poor attempt to explain the fraud directed at the Hive ecosystem.

There are other parts of these definitions that you intentionally omitted:

"Spam - internet postings"

Screenshot 2022-08-14 at 10.34.35.png

Like I said, repeating the same content in articles/comments on the Hive blockchain is considered to spam an and attempt to exploit the reward pool.

Avoid attempting to exploit the Hive ecosystem and attempting to impose your own rules to avoid the blacklist.

Show me in the white paper of hive that i can not translate my own content! You need more reserch about spam and exploits definitions, you are lost!

Nowhere in my replies was mentioned that someone cannot translate their own content.
Using logical fallacies is a poor attempt to explain the fraud directed at the Hive ecosystem.

I repeat! Show me in the white paper that i can't translate my own content and be rewarded for that.
