ARPANSA - new fact sheet on WiFi and health

The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) has published a new fact sheet on WiFi and health, and recently announced a WiFi in schools measurement program commencing in 2015.

In relation to WiFi and health ARPANSA says;

"There is no established scientific evidence showing that the low exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic energy from Wi-Fi adversely affects the health of children or the general population"

"It is the assessment of ARPANSA and other national and international health authorities, including the World Health Organization (WHO), that there are no established adverse health effects below current exposure limits.

Wi-Fi devices and access points are low powered, typically 0.1 watt (100 milliwatts). Measurement surveys have shown that exposure to RF EME from Wi-Fi in schools is expected to be much lower than the limit for public exposure specified in the ARPANSA Standard."
