radiation is radiation?

I hope they are ready to block out the sun, turn off anything that makes visible light, stop using microwaves, tvs, anything electronic, etc. Hell, if radiation is radiation they might as well live in sealed lead boxes.

You should see their website

said by »healthyhomealliance.com/ :

“These Wi-Fi transmitters function at 2.45 GHz, which is like being surrounded by a
microwave oven without walls or doors.”
This is like arguing that two 9V batteries are more dangerous than a 12V car battery.

Oh, this site is tasty. These people should take a high school class in writing. They break so many rules.

Any device or system that emits radiation is hazardous to your health.
I hope these guys don't use flashlights.

Most scientists have concluded that radiation causes harm to humans on all levels: mental, emotional, and physical.
Most scientists don't study radiation, so this statement is false by default.

As scary as it seems, chronic exposure to Electromagnetic Radiation, will definitely harm your children.
Again, too inclusive. "Will definitely" is definitely poor word choice with the only intent of creating fear.

Monumental consequences to the city and its citizens could be caused by a virus being introduced into the system.
Easily the best line on the whole website.

This site should be used to help define FUD.

It's more like comparing a hearing aid battery to a power plant.

1/4 of a watt, compared to 1200 watts. And just because a microwave has a box, doesn't mean they don't leak

You see that movie "The Others"? I'm sure the parents act the same way w/ their kids and the sun. They also probably use SPF 100 sunblock when their kids do have to go out.. lol

Anways, AM and FM, TV, Satellite, and other short wave signals are flying about.

I think they are just bored and want to waste peoples time.. I notice the USA has lots of that.

Mobile Faraday cage old technology

We stick by our suggestion that concerned parents should force their children to wear mobile Faraday cages.
The Healthy Home Alliance needs to upgrade to the latest technology:

Yup! I was gonna say the same thing, but you beat me to it. Bravo.

These cringers(ignorant 'fraidy cats) should pull their collective heads out of their collective asses and do some real research before they form committees and PACs and all that. Spreading FUD brings on all kinds of mean, nasty, ugly things.

Not that there's any thing wrong with being a cringer(ignorant 'fraidy cat).

Two nine volts ARE more dangerous than a 12 volt car battery. It's very hard to get your tongue across *both* terminals on the big car battery...

Or better yet....used a cell phone. Don't they know those things emit radiation? I bet most of these people have cell phones.

Maybe they use handsfree devices and put the cell phone in between their legs while driving or in their pockets when walking around. Radiation next to reproductive body parts may make them sterile which would help the gene pool out in the end.

Visible light is ionizing; microwaves are non-ionizing. That's one point in favor of WiFi over the sun.

This site is so embarrassingly silly I actually thought it was a parody at first. They can't even stay on topic as to why they dont want it. It's well worth reading:
»healthyhomealliance.com/info.html

I particularly liked this ending bit of completely obvious FUD:

Is Wi-Fi dangerous?
YES! Any device or system that emits radiation is hazardous to your health.

I'm surprised they don't say wifi causes communism too!

Wi-Fi Killed MY HUSBAND!

Jenny Vinson filed a $60 million lawsuit today against D-Link, Inc. alledging her husband's wi-fi network caused his brain cancer. The complaint alleges the "wi-fi" booster along with the router caused irreperable brain damage that lead to his death. She also claims the product contributed to bouts of schizophrenic behavior that doctors later determined was a brain tumor. Harold Vinson was a computer specialist for nearly 30 years before his untimely death.

Lightbulbs emit radiation. Turn off those lights!!!!

I liked this tidbit too:

Teenagers are more at risk because their hormones are changing.
WiFi made my teen moody! Hey, can I tweak my router to affect adult hormones? You know, like my wife's?

Perfect rebuttal: just direct anyone asking about this to: »www.theangellady.net

Who would take this nutcase's word for anything?

I'd like to add this to the discussion: if 1W Wi-Fi AP's, and 50W cell phone base stations are so dangerous, how come there's all these 3,000,000 W EIRP UHF TV stations operating all these decades, with no ill-effects?!

I guess the angels like watching Oprah so much, they protect us from the deadly TV rays(?)
