There is some discussion about the harm of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) emitted from mobile phones and other wireless devices. Is there reliable evidence? How does the distance of a baby to a wireless device affect the influence? I am not interested in anecdotes, assumptions, or dubious research but in hard, reproducible facts.

  • Could you link to some sources for the discussion about the harm from EMR you mention? It might help to get people started on quality answers. – user420 Jul 25 '12 at 13:24
  • This sounds like a candidate for Skeptics.SE... – Torben Gundtofte-Bruun Jul 25 '12 at 14:05
  • Since we're talking specifically about WiFi and cellular signals, I'm assuming we're going to limit the discussion to GHz-area microwaves and cell-phone or wifi-like power levels? It's pretty uncontroversial that exposure to high levels of highly energetic EMR (X rays, gamma rays) is harmful. ELF is a completely different can of worms too. – drxzcl Jul 25 '12 at 14:13

    I see it's already been cross-posted and answered on Skeptics so I am closing this copy. – Torben Gundtofte-Bruun Jul 25 '12 at 15:04
  • Their heads are more likely to develop hot-spots due to the radiation... Whether or not it is unsafe is still being debated. – L.B. Feb 13 '15 at 3:16
