As technology becomes more prevalent in our lives, so does our exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) and radiation. Wi-Fi routers are a major source of EMF radiation in our homes.
In this blog post, we explore methods to block radiation from Wi-Fi routers and reduce our exposure to EMF radiation.
WiFi Radiation and Health Risks
Currently, there is no solid evidence suggesting that Wi-Fi radiation directly causes cancer or other health problems (source).
The radiation from Bluetooth and Wi-Fi devices falls into the same basic range on the electromagnetic spectrum as the RF waves from cell phones and is not considered dangerous at low levels (source: Consumer Reports).
However, high levels of high-frequency EMFs can damage DNA and cells (source).
How to block radiation from wifi router
Reducing your exposure to WiFi radiation is important for your health. Here are some ways to minimize your exposure:
1. Distance from WiFi Router
The further away you are from your WiFi router, the less radiation you will be exposed to. Try to keep a safe distance between you and your router. Ideally, you want a safe distance between your router and your bedroom.
To reduce WiFi router radiation in the home, you should put your router in a more centralized location and in a corner where it can offer the best coverage for the home.
2. Using Ethernet Cables
Using Ethernet cables to connect your devices to the internet instead of relying on WiFi can significantly reduce your exposure to WiFi radiation. This will also improve the speed and reliability of your connection.
3. Turning Off WiFi when not in use
If you are not using your WiFi network, turn it off. This will significantly reduce your exposure to WiFi radiation.
4. Using a Timer To Turn off the router
You can use a timer to turn off your WiFi network automatically when you are not using it. This is a convenient way to reduce your exposure to WiFi radiation without having to remember to turn it off manually.
4. Hardwiring Devices
Hardwiring your devices to your LAN instead of using WiFi will significantly reduce your exposure to WiFi radiation.
This is especially important for devices that are frequently used, such as your computer or smart meter
while there is currently no conclusive evidence that Wi-Fi radiation causes direct harm to our health, but still you want to take steps to minimize the exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF).
This can be achieved by keeping a safe distance from Wi-Fi routers, using Ethernet cables, turning off Wi-Fi when not in use, using a timer to turn off the router, and hardwiring devices. By implementing these measures, we can reduce our exposure to EMF radiation.
