Is Constant WiFi Exposure Impacting Your Heart Disease Risk?

Lisa Nelson, RD, LN Health Pro February 13, 2012
  • Heart disease is a lifestyle disease. Yes, there are genetic or hereditary factors that play a role, but how you choose to live has a major impact. By lifestyle this makes me automatically think diet choices and activity level, but there are other factors that fall under "lifestyle".   Some of...

    Israel just passed a bill erroring on the side of caution as well - http://blog.drsinatra.com/blog/heart-health-nutrition/cell-phone-dangers

    I'll try to make this one short.  I think the all the hoopla over electromagnetic (EM) radiation is misplaced.  EM Is everywhere!  It comes from the sun (light), the universe (cosmic rays, GRB's), and the Earth -- the so called "background radiation".

     

    And better yet -- every sound produced -- even natural ones are a form of EM radiation. ...

    I'll try to make this one short.  I think the all the hoopla over electromagnetic (EM) radiation is misplaced.  EM Is everywhere!  It comes from the sun (light), the universe (cosmic rays, GRB's), and the Earth -- the so called "background radiation".

     

    And better yet -- every sound produced -- even natural ones are a form of EM radiation.  Yep.  Your speakers/headphones are exposing you to EM _this very second_.  The fact that we _know_ it's there doesn't make it dangerous.  In fact, EM has little effect on non-metals -- try magnetizing a piece of wood.  Good luck with that!

     

    And if EM really made people sick, where are all the people who've had MRIs lining up with similar diseases?  MRI's expose people enormous doses of EM radiation (1 to 2 Teslas -- remember the Earth's magnetic field is ~0.5 Tesla, so 1 to 2 is huge) to get an effect from "motivating" hydrogen protons to resonate, which is then picked up by other magnets and processed.

     

    This was before my time although I heard about it later, but check out what happened when people "thought" somethign was making them sick without the science to back it up: http://www.ehow.com/about_5230051_dow-corning-settlement-information.html.  Essentially Dow Corning was forced into bankruptcy because of breast implants it made and the "users" claimed made them sick (usually some kind of autoimmune disorder or cancer).  There's no doubt these "users" felt like they were wronged, but the science has come out since this settlement showing that there is no correlation between the disorders amd the implants.  Sometimes "stuff happens" and there is no smoking gun and no one to sue.

     

    I'm not against researching this issue as it's possible there's some effect on human blood or other magnetic materials in the body, but if you're looking for an answer as to why you have "X" or "Z", you should look elsewhere first -- I think this is a dead end.
