Are Cellphones Safe?
For the past few years, everytime a new advance in cellular connections has appeared, I often wonder what it’s doing to our brains. A technician website-cellular expert I have used, when questioned regarding my concerns about this, says that the big telecom and equipment producers have been allowed to offer technologies that have not been put through enough testing to determine safety.
In the April 23, 2018 issue of The Nation magazine, the following article on wireless technology and cell phone radiation effects kept me awake the other night. Having been a patient at a clinic in Switzerland back in 2002, I often heard the clinic physicians say that no child under 8 should be allowed to put a cell phone to their head. The immature brain would be more affected by the radiation and electromagnetic pulses of these devices.
It seems that may have been an accurate assessment not only for children but for adults as well. It also turns out that the wireless industry has a point man in Washington as far back as 1993 when only six adults per hundred had cell-phone subscription in the USA. Immediately, the image of teenage fingers dancing across keypads jumped into view.
There has been a massive and expensive operation to prove cell phones and their attendant technology are safe; it seems they are not and we should be aware of what’s going on. I offer a link to a special investigation article from THE Nation magazine: How Big Wireless Made Us Think that Cell Phones Are Safe.
