Consequences of 2.4-2.48 Ghz non-ionizing radiation of Wi-Fi router devices on the information processing speed in adolescents.

Background: In order to investigate possible consequences of radiofrequency electromagnetic radiations of Wi-Fi modem devices on the information processing speed of university students, six hundred teenagers (14-17 years old) selected by cluster random sampling. They further classified into two groups consisting one control group (without Wi-Fi modem at home; n=200) and experimental group (with Wi-Fi modem at home; n=400).

Methods: By means of reaction time machine and KDT test, the speed of information processing was examined.

Results: According to our analyses, a significant decrease in the reaction time could be detected in Wi- Fi modem users. The results also revealed that a significant correlation between the uses of Wi-Fi modems with the speed of information processing exists.

Conclusion: In conclusion, it has been demonstrated that the everyday radiofrequency electromagnetic field emitted by Wi-Fi devices has the ability to affect the normal functioning of young people’s brain.
