WLAN and electronic pollution

Hi everybody.

I'm currently evaluating upgrading my ethernet LAN to wireless WLAN
which will connect different pcs throght an access point.

I always been afraid of do this becouse I think that using a wireless
connection could be harmful. At least as an mobile phone.

What do you think about this?
Does anyone knows some official report of WLAN pollution ?

Redundant. The W in WLAN stands for wireless.

I don't think there's been any conclusive proof that using a mobile phone is harmful for you.

More of a problem would be the electronic pollution of other APs on your AP.
