I was travelling in Australia for three plus months and hired on a few occasions a house or room.

An issue arose in one of the houses I stayed in during my travels.

I wrote the following email to the Landlord (who lived in the same house sometimes) and did my best to explain my situation and what I had discovered.

Dear Landlord,

I am writing to discuss if the modem/router can be turned off at night when we sleep. Yesterday, I measured the radio frequency radiation exposure in my bedroom; unfortunately, it is dangerously high according to the building biologist’s safety radiation exposure guidelines.

The bedroom I sleep in measured up to 6 mW/m² (milliwatts per square meter), which equates to 6000 μW/m² (microwatts per square meter)

Anything above >10 μW/m² according to the Building Biologists safety guidelines, precaution is to be considered, and anything above > 1000 μW/m² microwatts per square meter (my bedroom measures 6000 μW/m²) calls for immediate and rigorous action.

The International Building Biologist measurement values:

  • No concerns are < 0.1 µW/m²

  • Slight concern 0.1 -10 µW/m²

  • Severe concern 10-1000 µW/m²

  • Extreme concern <1000 µW/m²

Any risk reduction is worth aiming at. Guideline values are meant as a guide. Nature is the ultimate standard, which is 0.000001 µW/m²

My bedroom reading is as high as 6000 μW/m²; the leading cause of this high RF radiation exposure is the modem in the study room 8 meters away from where I rest my head on the pillow to sleep and rejuvenate.

After a few days of staying in this bedroom, I noticed that I was waking up tired and felt foggy in the head, which is not the norm. I let it go for a few days to settle in before making any assumptions. But my symptoms were not improving. Instead, they were getting worse. I then measured the radiation exposure, and it became clear why I felt tired, not well-rested, and not fresh in the morning and the rest of the day. 

I also explained in my email to the Landlord that there is a lot of good scientific peer-reviewed information that confirms why WIFI can be harmful and that my symptoms are not unusual.

I have put forward the following scientific studies

1) Scientific Studies:

WIFI is an essential threat to people’s health (published in Elsevier). This paper is not focused on anecdotal reports. Still, 23 controlled scientific studies of such health-related effects in animal cells, in culture, and human beings all report the effects of WIFI.

2) Scientific Study:

EMF (WIFI) radiation affects sleep because it has been known to reduce the amount of melatonin we produce. The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Melbourne studied precisely this. Furthermore, the results show the significance of disruption of melatonin due to exposure to weak EMFs, which may lead to long-term health effects in humans.

Explanation of how WIFI affects your brain, sleep, and bodily function:

The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Melbourne found that EMFs affect the body’s production of melatonin, which seems to regulate our sleep and alertness. The pineal gland (the organ that produces melatonin and other hormones) sees the radiation from the modem/router as a source of light.

Although the Landlord had received my email, she chose to stay ignorant, nor was she interested in the scientific papers that backed up WIFI exposure, which can be detrimental to people’s health.

The irony of it all was that she showed serious symptoms of fatigue herself and had complaint to me about it.

To the Landlord’s credit, she just chose to be ignorant rather than arrogant, meaning she didn’t want to debate the subject while knowing nothing about it.

The Landlord decided it was too much of a hassle to make some simple changes instead she chose to stay ignorant the easy way out trumped the value of health.

Everybody has a hierarchy of values, which is quite an unconscious phenomenon for most people. You might want to reconsider your health versus convenience, especially regarding radiation exposure from your modem/router.

It was an easy decision for me as my health is everything; therefore, I made arrangements to move out and move on.

What is your home/work situation?

I want to give you some valuable tips for safeguarding yourself and those you care for.

Tips to minimise radiation exposure from your modem/router:

  1. Get the radiation exposure of your modem/router measured so you know where it is safest to place the modem/router.
  2. Hardwire your computer, keyboard, mouse, headset, laptop, etc.
  3. When you hardwire, change your modem’s setting by logging into your account and switching off the WIFI setting.
  4. When you hardwire, make sure you switch off the WIFI and Bluetooth connection on your computer.
  5. Switch the modem off at the PowerPoint before you go to bed.
  6. If you have a Telstra modem (the switch off button will not switch it off), only unplugging it from the PowerPoint will.
  7. Switch the modem off when you are not online.
  8. Always put your gadgets in flight mode if you don’t use them, especially before bed!

Prolonged exposure to WIFI can cause many chronic health symptoms.

I hope this information has been helpful to you. Switching off the WIFI at night can/will improve the quality of your sleep and how fresh and energised you feel when you wake up.
