Mobile phones have long been declared "possibly carcinogenic" & newly announced technologies only increase our worries. TechMW talks about how lack of research is leaving this risk hidden.

Wireless computer technology & mobile device radiation
The more data a device transmits, the more radiation it emits. New & more powerful wireless devices & chargers may emit a whole lot more radiation than mobile phones.

The announcement of a new wireless display technology at June 2014 Computex trade show in Taipei by Intel was quite exciting for our tech community & the consumers alike. Still, there are fears around health related problems due to mobile and Wi-Fi devices.TechMW, looks into research related to health risks of wireless devices, and how they fall short of proving a real threat.

Companies are upbeat about new wireless technologies that are either in R&D, or just announced. A host of wireless technologies like wireless displays, faster 4G broadband modems & high-powered chargers to name a few, are ready to hit the stores. Given that mobile phones are suspected to cause cancer and hence classified as “Group 2B - possibly carcinogenic” by The International Agency for Research on Cancer (, it is reasonable to doubt about the safety of such high powered devices that transmit much more data. TechMW also cites research papers and various sources about the ill effects of Wi-Fi, especially on children. Although it is often argued that strength of signals from a Wi-Fi router go weak with increase in distance, research does not take into account a realistic environment where tens of devices may be active and possibly create a very high degree of hazardous radiation. The author also shares wireless privacy concerns and talks about how use of wired LAN can lead to a faster and safer network experience. To read more about the subject visit:
