Electromagnetic radiation

Have you ever wondered about all the electromagnetic fields (EMF) with which we are surrounding ourselves more and more? Cell phones, microwaves, electrical power lines, cordless phones, Wi-fi computer networks, all of these transmit and/or emit varying types of electromagnetic signals. Our body also uses electromagnetic signals in our nervous system for the communication between our body and our brain. In fact, throughout our bodies, every biochemical process involves precisely choreographed movement of EMF-sensitive atoms, molecules, and ions. So, it seems logical that external EMF sources could disrupt our body's normal function. Consider that radiation used to kill cancer (and other cells which it contacts as well) is basically a high powered, focused EMF, should convince us that we must not take these things for granted - our health and very lives for the sake of our immediate need or convenience.
The evidence is inconclusive but some studies do indicate a possible link between EMF exposure and cancer, as I mentioned in a previous post:

This is a site with more info and products to measure and shield against excessive EMF exposure:

We must take personal responsibility for our lives and not assume that someone else or the civil government will always take care of us.
