free WiFi connections to all McDonalds restaurants.

PROVIDER O2 is bringing free WiFi connections to McDonalds restaurants.

The firm said that it will hook up the fast food eating places to a WiFi network by this Summer and will cover the McDonalds' entire 1,200 restaurant estate. Source: The Inquirer (http://s.tt/18JdZ)

This is part of O2's plans to unwire the UK, and the firm is pretty glad to be associated with those Golden Arches.

"A year ago we set out our ambition to transform public wifi in the UK by offering a fast and reliable public wifi connection that is genuinely free for all, no matter which mobile or broadband provider they are with," said Gavin Franks, MD of O2 Wifi.

"This announcement builds on the significant partnerships already secured by O2 Wifi in the past 12 months, enabling millions of people the length and breadth of the UK to access the internet for free whilst on the move."

McDonalds' customers will find the service easy to use, the firms said, and only need to sign up once to enjoy it at any of the its restaurants. You do not need to be an O2 customer to use it.

Mark Fabes, IT director at McDonald's UK said that customer use of wireless connections was rocketing at its restaurants and reckons that around three quarters of a million UK punters have some internet with their order every month.

They're actually quite late in the UK, in France and Germany they've been having free wifi access at McDo for years now.
I often use public wifi networks for my laptop or smartphone but you have to be careful about your data! There are a lot of restaurants and cafes that offer a free wifi access, here's a list for everyone who is interested!

How does the artificial electromagnetic soup which is mobile phones, microwaves, wifis, that we bathe in every day affect our most precious gift, our DNA?

Our DNA is a polar molecule which is affected by charged particles and electromagnetic fields, much in the same way as other polar molecules. Put simply, a polar molecule such as water has predominantly negative and positive regions. The charge on the molecule will align itself with the direction of an electromagnetic field. When the field oscillates then the molecule will switch from one direction to the other resulting in increased temperature, this is essentially the workings of the microwave oven.

The issue with DNA, however, is not merely one of increasing temperature. Many studies into mobile phone frequency EM radiation have only studied the heating effects. Whilst heating of the brain does occur, this is not the only cause of concern. The internal components of the DNA structure are rotated at different frequencies and different rates and the external ribbons of deoxyribose and phosphate are rotated and pulled.

With so many differing EM fields being transmitted by so many different sources, the DNA components attempt to turn to align with their respecting fields. This causes rotational and tensile stresses on the molecule. The base pairs of the molecule are held together down the middle by weak hydrogen bonds, much the same as a zipper. These weak hydrogen bonds are used in replication, but are weak enough to be broken by the physical stresses put on the structure of the molecule. The result is damaged DNA structures that are unable to function in the way they are designed to do so. Damaged DNA results in many diseases such as genetic disorders, infertility and cancer.

Despite evidence of the dangers, the use of EM devices is still rapidly on the increase, with smart meters, Wifi, and more powerful next generation mobile communications. This is in addition to the already numerous sources from electrical appliances, TV and radio signals, body scanners, overhead power lines and even the wiring in the walls of your home. There is no doubt that more research needs to be done. But whilst the dangers are ignored in the search for profit, no amount of research will change the daily onslaught of this silent and invisible danger.

Thanks for posting this Amyrose, I have often wondered what these things were doing to our bodies. Can you point me towards more information on this subject. The effects of WiFi etc, not McDonalds.

Thanks.
