They point out that advances in health care that have cut mortality rates for cancers and accidents leave more people in the late 40s alive. While it sounds callous, you have to die from something and if disease and accidents aren’t it, then perhaps brain disease will claim you.
In our modern cities and suburbs electro-magnetic radiation is pervasive.
Many homes, including mine, have WiFi in them. ‘Hotspots’ where people can make wireless internet connections have our bodies swimming in this low level radiation.
Our electrical provider has installed “Smart meters” to read electrical consumption which adds to our miniscule doses of the radiation.
This doesn’t seem to affect my health and I wasn’t much concerned until I recently entered a park where nearby microwave towers were situated. When I went to lock my car doors with my ‘smart key’ the key fob wouldn’t work.
Being a little obsessive about losing a key, I brought out the spare and it wouldn’t work either. There was enough scattered radiation in the area to interfere with the car’s electronic locking system.
It made me wonder how it was affecting the exquisite balancing act of electrical impulses in my own system.
Needless to say, I spent little time in that particular park. I also have ceased to think of WiFi protesters with a little more charity these days.
