In a word, NO. Now, in a much longer paragraph... After many years of study, there's not any conclusive evidence that exposure to WiFi (RF frequencies) has any effect whatsoever on living things and there are generally no health concerns, even if you placed your access point under your pillow. RF exposure involves frequency, power and the duration of the exposure. The human body most efficiently absorbs radio frequencies in the 30 to 300MHz range, and WiFi is at 2.4GHz. So not only is the frequency much different, but WiFi products have strict power and RF emmissions requirements, such as 100 milliwatts maximum output power. Plus, the WiFi RF energy is not "ionizing radiation" like it is UV light and Xrays, so WiFi frequencies pose no danger to human DNA the way prolonged sunlight UV rays cause skin cancers... What is actually of more concern is the RF energy from nearby FM radio stations! (But they've been around much longer than WiFi, studied extensively, and again, nothing conclusive about any health concerns.)

Did I specifically say I was referring to the U.S.? No, and even if I did, the topic applies to the entire world!
