RF Exposure

There isn’t a week that goes by where the question about RF exposure comes up and all the damaging effects of RF energy on the human body. Can RF exposure be a problem? Yes. Is it a problem for the average person during their daily activities? Not even close. There are only a handful of times that I can think of when people should be concerned about RF exposure and none of them involve scenarios that the average person would encounter.

No matter how many times we explain it, using 8,000 different examples, there always seems to be a question.

In an attempt to wrangle all of the articles the WLAN community has found to reference, I am building a page here to do just that. If you find a link that doesn’t work, let me know, as I know the effects but don’t use articles to defend my position.
