Practical tips for reducing Wifi exposure  (the debate over whether wireless radiation is carcinogenic rages on but why not reduce exposure until we get it sorted?)

1) put a timer on your router so that it is not transmitting when you go to bed

2) log into your router using the IP address (something like 192.168.1.1) type that into a browser and then enter a password which your ISP (internet service provider should have given you. There should be a setting to turn down the strength of the signal (by default they are often set to reach out 300 ft which is overkill) Most people could turn it down to 20-30% with no loss of functionality.

3) Don’t sleep or spend long periods of time next to your router!
