Dozens of Americans who claim to have been made ill by wi-fi and mobile phones have flocked to the town of Green Bank, West Virginia.
There are five billion mobile phone subscriptions worldwide and advances in wireless technology make it increasingly difficult to escape the influence of mobile devices. But while most Americans seem to embrace continuous connectivity, some believe it's making them physically ill.

Actually, there's more radiation (RF) coming out of a pre-HD era television, a microwave oven, a cell phone, a cordless telephone and so on and so on, than there is from a wi-fi transceiver. My guess is yes, hypochondriacs. Or possibly just schizophrenics. Or a combination of the two.edit on 9/13/2011 by DarknessMatters because: (no reason given)

Mind Control by Cell Phone
The data showed that when the cell phone was transmitting, the power of a characteristic brain-wave pattern called alpha waves in the person's brain was boosted significantly. The increased alpha wave activity was greatest in brain tissue directly beneath to the cell phone, strengthening the case that the phone was responsible for the observed effect.

I'd rather have a tower near my house than a meth lab.
Life is full of tradeoffs.

What I also found interesting/strange is when the article talks about the radio quiet zone so as not to interfere with the number of radio telescopes in the area and says "Others are operated by the US military and are a critical part of the government's spy network." If this were true do you advertise it on a well monitored 'news' site?

I think wifi, cell phones and other electronics can have an effect on our brain health. I think fluorescent bulbs make me drowsy, I minimize the use of them in my office.
