Dangers of Wifi and Simple Things to Reduce Exposure

Many of us have been working from home, including me, where I often work with my laptop…on my lap. I recently purchased a laptop radiation shield as a precaution. Increasingly, all of us are exposed to wireless radiation that affects our health. This excellent presentation by Cecelia Doucette summarizes the science behind the mechanisms of harm and the effects: Insomnia, headaches, nosebleeds/earbleeds, chronic fatigue, pain, skin abnormalities, irregular heartbeats, cognitive impairment, anger/behavior issues, anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation. The good news is that there are simple things we can all do to protect ourselves and our children: turn your phones/computers on airplane mode when not using the internet. Turn off wireless at night when not in use, use a headset when talking on your cell phone, etc. The first 25 minutes will give you the overall message.
