Electricity is all around us, all the time. It makes our lives easier, safer, more fun and most of us never think about it. But is there such a thing as too much electricity? Electronic devices emit an electromagnetic field, which is suspected to cause cancer. We read countless sources on this topic to summarize the results of the latest research for you.

@wtfgreg seriously? Wtf greg? He didnt trick you into buying anything. Unless of course you did purchase the product then realized it was for his profit? Did you do that? Or are u just a little baby today?

I understand the need for sponsorship and all but to make the video with a continuous transition into the advertisement without notification that an ad is being presented is disingenuous, and I expect better from you guys.

Does anyone remember when you would get a call on your brand new cell phone (because all cell phones were brand new) and someone would say “Don’t put that up to your ear!”

If you can feel it, it is bad.
Because your body imforms you about a problem.
If it doesn't bother him he would most likely stay silent or the
body isn't capable to respond anymore.

yes it seems clear to me that it does. each wave effecting a different sense directly as, noise = hearing! light = eyes ! try concentrating testing this theory around these relevant target areas.. i know noise tends too give me head aches, and to much artificial light from screens hurts my eyes and often have to stop watching or listening, there got to to be something more there... prolonged exposure to purely just 1 of those elements and they will tend too go stir crazy n start losing there mind...That is physiological trauma and can be used as torture.....

I'm not sure how the nocebo effect is real, because you do get a headache after an hour talking on the phone to your mom or gf or what ever... and It's not the fact that "I know it emits radiation and could be dangerous" its the fact that my face and is sticked to an electrical device.
