 I was wondering if Wi-Fi routers are a threat to our health. I have mine a few centimetres away in my room and it has been operating for 2 years now.

Should I be concerned and change it's place?

Appreciate your feedback

i don't think there is any conclusive evidence that electromagnetic fields hurt health. or for that matter doesn't hurt health..

but a Wi-Fi router sends out electro magnetic fields.. like our cellphones.. but havn't really heard of any taking any damage from a cell phone yet! :)

if i were you (since the field is pretty strong at the source (wi-fi router)) i would move it a bit.

If wi-fi causes health problems i would have been dead 5 years ago.

I think we are a bit more versatile to with stand radio waves. If we weren't cosmic radio waves that are much stronger would have obliterated us by now...
