Dr. Andrew Weil, founder and director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine recently weighed in on the topic of cell phones, Wi-Fi, and concerns for health. In an article recently published in Prevention magazine Dr Weil says:
Electromagnetic sensitivity has been associated with a wide range of symptoms, including insomnia, headaches, fatigue, poor concentration, irregular heartbeat, and dizziness.

For instance, when talking on your cell phone, use an earpiece and hold the phone away from your body; keep routers out of the bedroom, because you spend the most hours there; place appliances at least a foot away from your bed; and avoid electric blankets and heating pads.

Findings from a recent Danish study underscore health concerns: A group of intrepid ninth graders took 400 cress seeds (a rapidly growing herb), divided them evenly between two rooms, and gave all the seeds similar care, save for one difference: In one room, the seeds were placed next to two Wi-Fi routers. After 12 days, the seeds exposed to Wi-Fi had not grown, while the other seeds grew normally. Scientists intend to replicate the study to further investigate the effect of EMFs on normal cellular activity……   Prevention Magazine   October 2013
