WiFry (WiFi + fry); WhyFry (WiFi + why + fry)

"Wi-Fi” is a wireless networking technology. Many people people that Wi-Fi radiation is dangerous and have dubbed it “WiFry” (Wi-Fry) or “WhyFry” (Why-Fry).

“Its not wifi - its WiFRY” was posted on Twitter by mac on April 24, 2007. “WiFi or WiFry?” was a blog post title on May 30, 2007. “WiFi (aka Why Fry?)” and “WiFry” was posted on the newsgroup Mobilfunk-Newsletter - EMF-Omega-News on October 8, 2007.

Too much “Wi-Fry” can leave someone “Wi-Fried.” “wi-fried. RT @BylineBeatTECH Wifi-enabled laptops may be nuking sperm” was posted on Twitter by cσяεү— on November 28, 2011. Wi-Fried? (2016) was the title of a short documentary film.


Wikipedia: Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi or WiFi (/ˈwaɪfaɪ/) is a technology for wireless local area networking with devices based on the IEEE 802.11 standards. Wi-Fi is a trademark of the Wi-Fi Alliance, which restricts the use of the term Wi-Fi Certified to products that successfully complete interoperability certification testing.

Devices that can use Wi-Fi technology include personal computers, video-game consoles, phones and tablets, digital cameras, smart TVs, digital audio players and modern printers. Wi-Fi compatible devices can connect to the Internet via a WLAN and a wireless access point. Such an access point (or hotspot) has a range of about 20 meters (66 feet) indoors and a greater range outdoors. Hotspot coverage can be as small as a single room with walls that block radio waves, or as large as many square kilometres achieved by using multiple overlapping access points.

Starting to hear worrying reports about the heath dangers of WiFi radiation. I certainly hope it’s unfounded as I am not sure what I’d do without always on, wireless broadband

Wi-fi or wi-fry?
FROM EUROPEAN VOICE’S ENTRE-NOUS COLUMN
9/5/07, 5:00 PM CET Updated 4/23/14, 8:42 PM CET
(...)
Scientists and health experts from the US, Sweden, Britain, China and the European Environment Agency in Denmark have concluded that radiation from technologies such as wi-fi can cause a range of worrying symptoms from headaches to changes in brainwave activity. The study, which calls for more stringent safety standards to combat potential wi-fry, is likely to be challenged by the IT industry.

Are Americans Being Zapped?
Omega Group
10/8/07
This article appeared in Time Magazine over twenty-nine years ago - before anyone had cell phones or WiFi (aka Why Fry?) - so if they thought we were being zapped back then, then just imagine how badly we are being zapped now.
And now I hate to rain on everyone’s electromagnetic parade and be absolutely truthfully blunt here; and I know it may sound extremely harsh; and I know it may seen perfectly normal for you to have one of these devices; but remember, if you choose to own a cell phone or use WiFry, then you are part of the problem (not the solution) - you are contributing to making innocent people - including children - sick. Why? Because we are all being exposed to second-hand radiation. You are paying them to zap us! And how masochistic - or sadistic - is that? smile Think about it! Seriously!

Most people today live in a sea of radiofrequencies (RF), emitted from wireless technologies of all kinds, from routers to smartphones, tablets, baby monitors, TVs, appliances, smart meters and more. In the featured ABC program “Wi-Fried,” originally aired in 2016, Maryanne Demasi, Ph.D., investigates the alleged safety of mobile devices.
