    So I have been reading some articles about health. I came across a few articles about wireless devices poisoning us. Here is one that I thought was good.

    http://www.worldhealth.net/p/the-radiation-poisoning-of-america.html

    It is a longer read so I advise you just scam through it. If you are interested in this subject I would suggest you read the whole thing.

    So I just have a few questions about the subject.

    What are your personal thoughts on all of this?

    Would you be willing to give up wireless?
    (*correction due to FirefighterBlu3, you can not "give up" wireless, but would you get rid of your cell phone, wireless internet, and all those devices that support it in an attempt to state that you do not approve of cell phones etc.? Would it become anoter vegan stance like PETA?*)

    Does anyone have any personal experience with this subject that they would like to share (anonymously if desired)?

    BTW I found this article through http://kahunka.com/ Great website!

    I could give up wireless internet, I could give up my bluetooth headset for my phone, but simply could not live without my bluetooth controllers for my PS3.

    I agree. Dont know what i would do without the PS3 controller being wireless. Would have to buy 2 controller wire extensions like i did with the PS2.

    I know! I tend to jump up and down on the couch spitting obscenities at the TV when I play. You just can't do that very well with a 'wired' controller.

    a) I know kahunka in real life.

    b) You can't "give up" wireless. Even if you remove every electrical device from your household - you are still subjected to RF energy constantly. Even in the middle of the desert you are subjected to RF energy, just not as much.

    Wearing a tin (not aluminum) hat will block some RF, but not all. You have to breath, eat, and see icon_smile.gif

    Nor is there a perfect Faraday cage to live in.

    There's certainly a difference between strapping five cellphones to your head and talking on all of them constantly. That may cause distinct cellular damage.

    I treat articles on this subject like the cellphone antennae expanders ;)

    Firefighter - how do you treat the cellphone antennae expanders? *Take a look at the correction on the main post* And lucky you knowing Kahunka in personicon_wink.gif

    I have found that there is a great difference in the environment of Panama compared to USA. I had been living down in Panama for about a year. I flew back up to Seattle (my home town) and within a couple days I had acne. My eating habits had to change, but I was eating as healthy as I could. Now this could be due to many things and not just wireless devices, but I find it strange how toxic the environment is.

    Funny how, with a list of 39 references, the article didn't cite even a single scientific study to back up its many extraordinary claims. It's just a lot of circular references to the lunatic fringe. None of the legitimate studies of RF doses and effects are even mentioned.

    In fact, for the OP, moving from Panama to Seattle would mean a huge decrease in radiation exposure. The sun is the overwhelming source of most radiation at the Earth's surface. Near the equator, the numbers at hand (the spectral width is not specified) say it's close to 1300 watts per square meter, while more than halfway to the pole, it's closer to 800. That's like a billion bluetooth headsets.

    However, while I appreciate the freedom of cellular networks and a wireless laptop, I do worry about cluttering up the available spectrum with clouds of unnecessary radio noise. Or maybe I'm just peeved because I spent a lot of money wiring up my house and farm buildings with ethernet, just before everything started coming out wireless.

    Jimmini Christmas.............this is the same sort of stuff that people used to say about the car........the human body is not designed to sustain speed in excess of 30 miles per hour.

    Cheers,

    It might do the world some good Just think the average couch potato would have to get up of the couch 10 times extra a day to change the channel...

    We would also get 20 quality channels instead of a thousand channels of crap
