Well this is certainly a concern, but not one I would loose sleep over. The thing is that there is electromagnetic radiation all around us which emanates, not only from WLAN and cell phones, but also the electrical wiring in your house, HV power lines in the street, microwave ovens, toaster and the natural radiation from the sun and general radio waves in the atmosphere. Most of these are fairly low level and probably don't present any greater risk than anything else that we are constantly exposed to in our day to day lives! Keep in mind however, the radiation field strength intensity of these devices increases exponentially in the near field (i.e. when your very close such as having a cell phone against your ear) in that case I would say that there is a very real danger, the longer you are exposed and this is being well documented and substantiated by many studies, which we will be seeing more and more of in the years to come. The best idea is to keep these devices at a safe working distance, such as using a cell phone for texting and/or speaker phone where by you don't have it against your body for prolonged periods. Similarly for WLAN's, having the device at arms length should be fine and won't present any greater danger than anything else you are exposed to. Short of going to live on a deserted island somewhere, it is all about being aware, not worrying too much and doing everything in moderation as it is just part of our modern society. Besides the chances of being hit on the head by a coconut whilst on the deserted island would be just as great!!

1. Marie Curie (born Maria Skłodowska; also known as Maria Skłodowska-Curie; November 7, 1867 – July 4, 1934) was a physicist and chemist of Polish upbringing and, subsequently, French citizenship. She was a pioneer in the field of radioactivity, the first and only person honored with Nobel Prizes in two different sciences, and the first female professor at the University of Paris. She was born in Warsaw, Vistulan Country, Russian Empire, and lived there until she was 24. In 1891 she followed her elder sister Bronisława to study in Paris, where she obtained her higher degrees and conducted her scientific work. She founded the Curie Institutes in Paris and Warsaw. She was the wife of fellow-Nobel-laureate Pierre Curie and the mother of a third Nobel laureate, Irène Joliot-Curie. While an actively loyal French citizen, she never lost her sense of Polish identity. Madame Curie named the first new chemical element that she discovered (1898) "polonium" for her native country,[1] and in 1932 she founded a Radium Institute (now the Maria Skłodowska-Curie Institute of Oncology) in her home town, Warsaw, headed by her physician-sister Bronisława. Prizes Nobel Prize in Physics (1903) Davy Medal (1903) Matteucci Medal (1904) Nobel Prize in Chemistry (1911) Tribute As one of the most famous female scientists to date, Marie Curie has been an icon in the scientific world and has inspired many tributes and recognitions. In 1995, she was the first and only woman laid to rest under the famous dome of the Panthéon, in Paris, on her own merits, alongside her husband. The curie (symbol Ci), a unit of radioactivity, is named in her and/or Pierre's honour,[3][4] as is the element with atomic number 96 - curium. Skłodowska-Curie's likeness appeared on the Polish late-1980s inflationary 20,000-złoty banknote. Her likeness also appeared on stamps and coins, and on the last French 500-franc note, with her husband, before the franc was made obsolete by the euro. Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon starred in the 1943 U.S. Oscar-nominated film, Madame Curie, based on her life. "Marie Curie" is also the name of a character in a 1988 comedy, Young Einstein, by Yahoo Serious. Three radioactive minerals are named after the Curies: curite, sklodowskite, and cuprosklodowskite. Pierre and Marie Curie University, the largest science, technology and medicine university in France, and successor institution to the faculty of science at the University of Paris, where she taught, is named in honour of her and Pierre. The university is home to the laboratory where they discovered radium. Another school named for her, Marie Curie M.S. 158, in Bayside, New York, specializes in science and technology as does Curie Metropolitan High School, located in the community area of Archer Heights on Chicago's Southwest Side. It has a Technical, Performing Arts and IB program. In 2007, the Pierre Curie Paris Métro station was renamed the "Pierre et Marie Curie" station. The Maria Skłodowska-Curie Medallion, a stained-glass panel created by Jozef C. Mazur, may be found at the University at Buffalo Polish Room. A KLM McDonnell Douglas MD-11 (registration PH-KCC) is named in her honor.[5] 2. Lise Meitner (November 7 or 17 1878 – October 27, 1968) was an Austrian-born, later Swedish physicist who studied radioactivity and nuclear physics.[1] Awards and honours Lise Meitner ca. 1928.In 1944, Hahn received the Nobel Prize for Chemistry for the discovery of nuclear fission. Some historians who have documented the history of the discovery of nuclear fission believe Meitner should have been awarded the Nobel Prize with Hahn.[17][18][19] In 1966 Hahn, Fritz Strassmann and Meitner together were awarded the Enrico Fermi Award. On a visit to the USA in 1946 she received American press celebrity treatment as someone who had "left Germany with the bomb in my purse." She was honoured as "Woman of the Year" by the National Women's Press Club (USA) in 1946, and received the Max Planck Medal of the German Physics Society in 1949. Meitner was suggested to receive the prize three times. An even rarer honour was given to her in 1997 with naming element 109 meitnerium in her honour.[4][20][21]

Radiation works by utilizing unfavourable the DNA of the cancerous and healthful cells. even as those cells undergo mitosis (reflect), the damaged DNA prevents this from being effectual and the cellular dies. the reason we use radiation to attend to maximum cancers is because the conventional cells have the potential to fix the wear and tear and tear performed by utilizing radiation while as maximum cancers cells do no longer. Low doses of low element radiation over a lengthy era of time is extra probably to reason maximum cancers than receiving intense doses of radiation over a short era of time (to illustrate - the after consequences of Chernobyl). also, the intense dose of radiation is given to a small area and in no way the completed body. the benefits of radiation treatment a strategies outweigh the negative aspects of coming up a secondary maximum cancers (which will or ought to no longer ensue).

That is very small dosis. Practically, you would be exposed to much larger radiation amount from sun & other wireless/cellphones/etc, so it has no effect. There are rumours that cell phones or wlan network waves might cause cancer, but they are spread by either unknowing people or purely on theoretical basis by multiplying that radiation lots of time. You are safe.

I'm not a doctor or anything, but alot of medical studies in the news would claim that you stand a higher risk of developing cancer. However, worrying about getting cancer might put you at an even higher risk since consistently elevated stress levels have a proven link with all forms of cancer. That being said, it's always a good idea to "unplug" yourself the most amount you can, and try not to worry about it.

You can get cancer from too much radiation but you need to absorb the equivalent of 200 x-rays. Your daily consumption doesn't put you anywhere near that, but scientific studies are still not decided if this kind of continual usage has any affect. They can't prove it or disprove it for sure so I wouldn't be too worried.

Seir Originally Answered: What are different ways to protect my eyes from radiation from laptop/computer?
Protect eyes from computer radiation is very essential for people. Long term work with computer, you will feel eyes blurred and can’t see well which is caused by computer radiation and eye excessive fatigue. The problem of eye fatigue skin is dark pouches, increased eye fine wrinkles and pouch. How to prevent these eye problems caused by computer radiation and solve them? Do more eye massage can improve blood circulation and have certain effect on eliminate dark pouches, but remember don’t overexert, otherwise you will make eye muscles prolapsed. Use eyeshield gel which contains chamomile, green tea or green cucumber. Use eye mask once a week. Indeed, pouch affect beauty and hardly to eliminate if it forms. Long-term computer work will make eye fatigue and hemangiectasis make eye muscle swelling, you can shut up eyes, use make up cotton dips in frozen aloe juice apply eye, static lying in a few minutes, can improve the swelling. Don’t ignore the swelling, accumulate a serious eye pouch, you should have surgery to solve it. Long-term eye fatigue, fine winkles will be easy on your eyes, you can use tighten water which used for eyes only everyday and also the eye mask once a week can eliminate the fine winkles quickly. Pay attention to your eye problem and try to solve them.
