Electromagnetic radiation around you
The future is friendly – or so you believe. With advances in technology and the inevitable development of the Internet of Things, your house – as well as the houses of your neighbors, your offices, coffee shops and pretty much all locations are now hosting multiple “smart” devices, WiFi networks, Bluetooth speakers, cellular phones, wireless chargers and other wonders of civilization.
All of this is easy to get excited about – an environment where most devices are connected to each other and to the Internet, where you can roam free and seamlessly synchronize your work or entertainment across multiple devices without the limitation of tangled wires or busy hands, where the processing power of an average modern fridge (that can take pictures of your food and wirelessly push notifications and reminders to your cell phone) probably exceeds the processing power of a supercomputer just a few decades ago, the environment where thermostats self-adjust after learning your habits and preferences, doorbells can send you pictures of your guests, lights dim in response to your voice commands and even your coffee maker is able to accept your requests from across town and start brewing your favorite drink – all of this would have seemed like a scene out of science fiction novel just a few years ago.
The future is already here.
But all this convenience may come at a very high price if you consider all the potential impact it has on your health. And when you realize how big the impact actually is and how hard it is to escape it – the science fiction may turn into a horror story.
The truth of the matter is that, unfortunately, most of what you are going to read is not widely discussed and most people just don’t realize the impact – and those who may suspect something prefer to hide their heads in the sand, living in the ignorant bliss, happy to reap the rewards modern technology has to offer.
What we are hoping for is that your views will change once you realize that this ignorance can be deadly – for you, your children, your pets and any other living thing.
