    Before wifi it was common for people to claim that power lines caused ill effects on ones health. Of course that never had any supporting evidence either.

      And now it's wind turbines. There are people convinced despite independent study after study that proves no harm.

      Actually there was supporting evidence, but it had nothing to do with electricity or electromagnetic fields. The higher incidence of certain diseases near power lines was caused by poverty. Middle class and wealthy people avoided living near power lines, leaving those areas to poor people, who are more likely to developed diseases related to poor nutrition.

      So it was more of a correlation than causation, but most people can't see the difference.

        It will. But it won't be cause by the radio emissions, but by browsing Reddit all day long. The only way to avoid a brain meltdown is to change to Snapzu NOW!
