When it comes to technology the environment should be considered at every point in the decision making process. In order for our children to flourish they must live in a healthy environment with other healthy living things.

- Statistically significant changes from a non thermal effect
- RF background may have strong adverse effects on growth rate ...and may be an underlying factor in aspen decline

- "the linear and angular speed of ants are immediately altered by the presence of EMF/RF fields. Based on these results, the authors advise users to deactivate the WiFi function of their PC/laptop."

Bees and Insects
Cellphone radiation and EMFs have been found to affect changes in honey bee behaviour .
For example, when a constantly transmitting DECT-base station was put next to a hive, many bees could not return back to hive and bees behaved aggressively.
by Dr. Ulrich Warnke,
Exposure to wireless devices such as Wi-Fi, baby monitors, and phones created statistically significant effects regarding reproduction and cell death-apoptosis induction, even at very low intensity levels (0.3 V/m bluetooth radiation), well below ICNIRP's guidelines.
Wireless and Energy
“The problem is that we’re all accessing cloud services – things like webmail, social networking and virtual applications – over wireless networks.
It’s the modern way but wireless is an energy monster, it’s just inherently inefficient. ...
Our calculations show that, in 2015, the wireless networks we use to access cloud services will command around 90% of the energy needed to power the entire wireless cloud services ecosystem….
This is an increase in carbon footprint from 6 megatonnes of CO2 in 2012 to up to 30 megatonnes of CO2 in 2015, the equivalent of adding 4.9 million cars to the roads.
