How Digital Devices Keep Us Up All Night
" . . . The problem? Those electronic devices may be contributing to our sleep-deprived society. Eight-five percent of American adults tell the Better Sleep Council they have trouble sleeping at night. One in ten suffers from more serious chronic insomnia, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Since lack of sleep is linked to obesity, depression, cardiovascular disease and diabetes, the CDC declared sleep deprivation a "public health epidemic" in 2014. . .
"So what can you do to boost your chances of getting a good night's rest? . . .

"People with pacemakers have been warned not to keep their smartphones in their top pocket after scientists discovered they can make the devices stop. . . .
"Researcher Dr Carsten Lennerz said: "Pacemakers can mistakenly detect electromagnetic interference (EMI) from smartphones as a cardiac signal, causing them to briefly stop working.
"This leads to a pause in the cardiac rhythm of the pacing dependent patient and may result in syncope. "For implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) the external signal mimics a life threatening ventricular tachyarrhythmia, leading the ICD to deliver a painful shock." . . .
"The research was presented at a joint meeting of the European Heart Rhythm Association and the European Society of Cardiology in Milan, Italy.

"Using the Precautionary Principal, mitigating exposure is a proper goal. Mean occupational exposures over 10 mG or intermittent exposures above 100 mG should be lowered to the extent possible. In situations where this is not feasible, the daily length of exposure should curtailed. Lowering ELF MF exposure can be done by improved placement of the source(s) of magnetic fields (e.g., electric motors in sewing machines, AC/DC converters), shielding, and redesign. It is clear that re-engineering products can greatly lessen ELF MF exposure, and possibly result in important innovations. It is noted that certain automotive models produce medium to high ELF MFs, as do steel-belted radial tires (Milham et al., 1999).
"All of the studies discussed have based exposure classifications using magnetic field (MF) measurements, not electric field (EF) measurements. We separately discuss extremely low frequency (ELF, ≤ 60 Hz) MFs and radiofrequency (RF) MFs. Furthermore, the discussion is primarily limited to investigations related to ELF MF exposure as a possible risk factor for Alzheimer's disease (AD), female breast cancer (BC), and the possible biological pathways linking ELF MF exposure to AD and BC incidence, e.g., reduction in the production of melatonin. . . .
New Research Discovers that Depression is an Allergic Reaction to Inflammation

The Silent Autism Carriers - autism info
" . . . Based on Coulomb's inverse-square law, the comparative force of RF energy on reproductive DNA between the sexes may be calculated. When carried in a front trouser pocket, a mobile phone is in the order of 20 centimeters in distance from female reproductive DNA, but only 5 centimeters in distance from male reproductive DNA. By Coulomb's law, as distance is increased by a factor of four, electrostatic force is decreased by a factor of 16. In our trouser pocket scenario, male reproductive DNA receives 16 times greater force of RF radiation than female reproductive DNA.
Data Shows Cell Phones Associated with Autism
"Do cell phones cause autism? According to government data, they are associated. This cell phone autism analysis shows the association, using publically-available CDC and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) data. U.S. states with high rates of cell phone subscribers have much higher rates of autism. This shows use of cell phones by parents leads to autism in children.
"But not the mother's use of cell phones. A cohort study based on Amsterdam Born Children found that maternal mobile phone use during pregnancy does not increase the odds of behavior problems in their children. This is another expression of Coulomb's law; the majority of new autism cases are coming from men's fragmented reproductive DNA. . . .

Aljazeera - How is our need to be constantly connected impacting our lives and could a digital detox be the solution?
"Al Jazeera's Phil Lavelle is constantly connected, and can rarely be found without his face buried into one of his many mobile devices. He diagnosed himself as a digital addict - after researching the symptoms online, of course - but now feels the need to disconnect.
"We follow him as he checks into a digital detox facility and attempts to adapt to a life without his devices. Along the way, we explore the modern phenomenon of digital addiction. . . .
Testimony to the Pembroke Pines Florida Commission
In this video, Attorney Jimmy Gonzalez gives testimony (October 2012) to the Pembroke Pines Florida Commission asking them to petition the City to issue a Resolution raising awareness of the health risks of cell phone radiation. He warns others about cell phone use and his three tumors.
Mr. Gonzalez died in November, 2014 at the age of 42.

Citizens For Safe Technology
"Wi-Fi: Is It Safe?"
Citizens for Safe Technology is a not-for-profit educational society made up of parents, grandparents, teachers, business professionals, scientists, politicians and lawyers concerned about the exponential increase in public exposure to harmful wireless technologies.
We believe a profound urgency exists to protect the unsuspecting public, especially children, youth and pregnant mothers from unsafe wireless technologies.
