Are WiFi signals dangerous?

British lads are calling for an investigation to find out more about the potential health risks of WiFi networks:
According to the The Independent on Sunday, Sir William Stewart, the chairman of the Health Protection Agency, wants pupils to be monitored for ill effects from Wi-Fi.

Sir William is a former chief scientific adviser to the Government, and has chaired two official inquiries into the hazards of mobile phones.

He fears that Wi-Fi could cause cancer and premature senility. Several European provincial governments are banning or limiting Wi-Fi use in the classroom.

No studies have been carried out into Wi-Fi's effects on pupils, but it gives off radiation similar to emissions from mobile phones and phone masts.
