turn off 5GHz does not reduce EMF ?

I turned off the 5GHz bands in hopes to reduce my EMF readings. However, to my surprise, my EMF readings did not change at all. I will be installing ethernet cables as soon as my electrician can get here; in the meantime, I wanted to reduce my EMF readings when we do have the WiFI on. I thought this would help; that is, only having the 2.4GHz enabled. Thoughts?  Appreciate it.

Been reading some scary stuff somewhere?


I'm afraid that most of the discussion here is about fixing real world issues.

Just another user.
