The wireless phenomenon has enveloped our world. Most of us use smartphonestablets and Wi-Fi constantly. Research is telling us, however, that using these devices for sustained periods can have a negative effect on our health as they emit microwave radiation. Wireless Education is dedicated to the delivery of education for safer use of wireless technology in our homes, places of work, schools and other public buildings.

It is our sole aim to present this complex scientific information in a non-biased, easy to understand way, so that we can all learn to use wireless technologies safely. We have researched medical and scientific information so you don’t have to (although we encourage independent investigation too!).
