Is your cell phone killing you?

Inside New Zealand will screen the documentary Is Your Cell Phone Killing You? this month

The documentary explores disturbing research suggesting that our exposure to everyday electromagnetic fields could be hazardous to our health.

It examines how we are constantly surrounded by radiation – from cell and cordless phones, wi-fi internet, cell towers, powerlines, and even from our electric blankets. Every call you make on a cell or cordless phone is pumping radiation straight into your brain. Every hour your kids spend in a wi-fi enabled classroom is an hour spent immersed in a fog of electromagnetic forces.

Could this invisible radiation cause a devastating public health crisis? Is our new technology the new tobacco or asbestos?

Electromagnetic radiation is now being linked to a host of serious health problems – ranging from depression and miscarriage to Alzheimer’s disease and cancer.

Many scientists and health professionals are now warning that our long-term exposure at levels well below the existing safety standards could result in a massive global public health crisis – worse than crises caused by tobacco or asbestos because we are all exposed.

Is Your Cell Phone Killing You? Will screen on Wednesday, June 22nd at 8:30pm on channel 3.

    Thank goodness this information is coming to light. We have to do something about EMF radiation, in particular cell phone towers and wifi devices.

    Just try turning your wifi devices off and see what a difference it makes in the clarity of your thinking.

    Read this post here for more information:

    We’re bombarded by the sun’s electromagnetic radiation every day. A 4 watt cellphone can’t be worse than a 2,000 Watt Infrared radiant heater! I think by comparison the little cell phone is nothing compared to that. But I’m looking forward to watching the documentary, hopefully it’s not all about instilling fear in people.

    Come on New Zealand, WAKE UP!

    World Health Organization says: Cell phones as big a risk ->

    Other countries take measures against EMF and in New Zealand our National Radiation Laborotry says: Nothing happing, well within the safty limit!

    But those limits are set far to high!!

    Interesting topic however how can it last more than three minutes. Cancer rates have decreased, Cellphone usage has increased expotentially.

    XKCD summed it up nicely http://xkcd.com/925/
