WiMAX Could Fry Your Brain. Or Not

Lakehead University in Ontario, Canada has banned the use of WiFi in the campus due to behavioral and physiological risks associated with the technology. According to university president Fred Gilbert, 31 scientists have subscribed the Benevento Resolution, which calls for precautionary strategies to wireless systems and setting up WiFi-free zones in cities, schools, hospitals and on public transport systems. Gilbert believes electric and magnetic fields have the same impact on people as secondhand tobacco smoke and asbestos. This view is contrary to what senior Intel executive Sean Maloney said last year. Maloney maintained that there is no proof validating concerns that wireless transmissions can damage human tissue.
