Dec. 3

This morning I read an article on yahoo about cancer caused by common tech device radiation. When they say cell phones are safe, they are talking about studies done in the 1990's when far fewer people had cell phones, and men certainly didn't wear cell phones on their hips like they do now. People didn't place laptops on their pelvis for hours. In truth, cell phones held for hours near the head cause ginoma's- brain tumors. Too much exposure to wireless and dirty electricity can cause heart arrhythmia, diabetes, leukemia, etc. We are in essence killing ourselves with technology.
Here's some tips: Don't let children under the age of 6 use a cell phone or a wireless landline. (Those cordless phones in your home have a base that acts like a personal cell tower shooting off radiation than a cell phone.) Little children's brains soak up more radiation. Get a landline with a corded phone. You can use long cords if you want to walk around. Turn off your home's wireless modem at night. Your wifi modem is constantly giving off signal. Turn off the wifi feature on your laptop if you are not online. If you are like my dd and sleep with your phone, turn off the wifi feature when using the phone as an alarm clock, a game system, a movie player or music player.
Also, you know those wonderful environmentally sound curled florescent light bulbs- recycle them immediately and replace with LED bulbs or regular bulbs. Those florescent bulbs give off dirty electricity that is known to aggravate diabetes, heart arrhythmia's, and cause paranoia and other behavior issues. True scientific fact.
My mother always said this when I was growing up. She worked with developmentally disabled kids and she said the fluorescent lights in schools were bad for those kids. Turns out they are bad for us all.
Never in human history have we been bombarded with so much electricity and radiation over a lifetime. These are small simple steps you can take to lower your exposure. Cheers~


  1. Scary. I have heard a number of these warnings before but I tend to push this sort of thing to the back of my mind. Thanks for the reminder.

  2. Be curious to see what happens to our health in the next ten years. And while I'm a slave to my computer, never been fond of my cell phone.

  3. Hi, thanks for the comments. I agree. It is kind of scary and it will be interesting to see how it effects our health. I don't have a land line. I couldn't see paying for two phones, but I don't keep my cell phone on my hip, much to the dismay of people who try to call me and my phone is in my coat pocket or purse and I can't hear it. :D
