There are over 6 billion subscriptions to cell phone service providers worldwide, they have completely revolutionized how we communicate with texting being at the forefront. Our smartphones now make videos, take high definition photographs, some of which move in the first second or two, they can chrome cast movies to your TV screen, issue voice commands, navigate with global positioning systems, surf the web and help run your business/life via email, planning and social media interfaces.
Unfortunately, the studies on how damaging all of this can be to our health have not been widely published or adhered to, nor are they definitive and more research needs to be done, the FCC in the States are still running off rules and regulations from 16 years ago, most of what our phones do today had not even been created back then. The World Health Organization has declared that cell phone radiation in the form of EMF’s may be linked to brain cancer and there have been ten studies showing the link to diminished sperm count and sperm damage.
I’m not going to wait for more studies to be done regarding the frequencies being emitted from my cell phone, instead I’m looking for practical solutions just in case, most of these are very simple and some are in the form of new technology, more on that next week.
