Wifi risks & benefits: What if?

What if we limit the use of wifi in public libraries and it turns out that the current evidence of linkage turns out not to be causative and as a result of limiting the use of wifi we have limited public access to information which allows the public to inform themselves about their own health issues and make well informed decisions?

And this:
There have been a large number of occupational studies over several decades, particularly on cancer, cardiovascular disease, adverse reproductive outcome, and cataract, in relation to RF exposure. More recently, there have been studies of residential exposure, mainly from radio and television transmitters, and especially focusing on leukemia. There have also been studies of mobile telephone users, particularly on brain tumors and less often on other cancers and on symptoms. Results of these studies to date give no consistent or convincing evidence of a causal relation between RF exposure and any adverse health effect. On the other hand, the studies have too many deficiencies to rule out an association.
