Negative Impact On Health Of Radio Wave Frequencies?
, I am a goddess, I want to ask that my workplace is very close to the wifi router, the distance is about 40 cm from the desk.
Hello Dewy, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Until now, various studies are still being conducted to find whether there are negative impacts on health from radio wave frequencies (for example from wifi routers, cellphones, or bluetooth) still give contradictory results. Most studies show there are no specific negative effects caused, but experts also can not say that there is no potential for negative impacts at all.
Basically, radio wave frequencies used on cellphones, wifi, or bluetooth include non-ionizing radiation (different from radiation from sunlight, x-rays or CT scans, nuclear). Because not ionizing this radiation does not potentially cause damage to DNA which is the cause of the emergence of cancer and other health problems. However, the same as mentioned above, experts also can not say that there is no potential danger at all. The impact on fertility has also not been studied in humans.
Based on the explanation above, the wifi router is actually less likely to cause health problems (and also fertility problems). However, you are still recommended to reduce exposure to excessive radio wave radiation.
The following are some things that can be done:
keep the source of radio waves (including when you use a cellphone, keep it away from your body, when you call, you should use earphones, keep the router away from your workplace if possible, don't keep the cellphone in your bed when you sleep) Minimize exposure, meaning don't be in close too long to a radio wave source (don't be 24/7 near a router for example)
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
