Cell phones are omnipresent. The vast majority of us own at least one. Children at the age of six or seven are often getting their first phone and there are cell phones models designed specially for even younger kids. We cannot imagine life without these gadgets, and sometimes we might wonder how life was possible before the cell phone era.Now for the questions: Do we really know whether long-term extensive use of cell phones will cause any health effects? Are we certain that the current safety limits are sufficient to protect all users, young and old, healthy and sick?

Researchers compared semen samples from 29 men in good health. Some of the samples were placed under a laptop with Wi-Fi, while others were held at the same temperature away from the computer. In the Wi-Fi sample, 25% had stopped swimming compared to less than 1/6 in the samples not directly exposed to the wireless signal.

The reason energy and appliance companies are pushing smart meters is because they're already producing home and office devices that can communicate with smart meters. Even without that, research has shown that, with appropriate software installed, smart meters can read electric "load signatures" and identify different household devices.
And if "privacy really is a non-issue," the writer should let security experts around the world know, because it's hard to find one that doesn't describe wireless digital metering systems as securityporous surveillance operations. The B.C. privacy commissioner is midway through her analysis of the myriad privacy concerns.
