The Quantum Internet will be a network of quantum computers linked by optical cables.
Because optical cables are used, not dangerous radiation, there should be no adverse health effects from the Quantum Internet.
Representatives of seven European Union countries (Belgium, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, and Spain) signed a declaration at the Digital Assembly on June 13 2019 in Bucharest, Romania, agreeing to explore together, over the next 12 months, how to develop and deploy a quantum communication infrastructure (QCI) across the EU within the next ten years.
This is not a true alternative to Radio Frequency Radiation, since it uses Electromagnetic Radiation in Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs), part of the visible light spectrum.
LEDs are known to have significant adverse biological effects, although these may be more easily limited since they occur where the EM light is visible to the human eye.
