“It’s no wonder insomnia is a growing problem, just look at the sea of electromagnetic fields most people are living. All these wireless devices (cell phones, modems etc) and other electromagnetic field emitting technologies don’t just create stress, studies show there are adverse biological effects. Oxidative stress and a reduction in melatonin (the sleep hormone) are two of the best documented. Do yourself a favor rid your bedroom of cell phones, cordless phones, switch off your WiFi and replace your electric clock radio with a battery version.”

“My response of "nonsense" was specifical¬ly in reference to the claim that cumulative exposure to electromag¬netic waves causes cancer; neither Lloyd nor you, Sharon, could provide a plausible mechanism for this effect much less credible evidence to support this assertion.”
If you look at what independent scientists and researchers are saying about EMFs people like Magda Havas, Debra Davies, Martin Blank and Pr. Belpomme you will see that they are saying very clearly that EMFs cause cancer, see http://electricsense.com/1082/electromagnetic-fields-cancer-and-leukemia-a-cure/”

“Research (George Carlo for instance) tells us that exposure to electromagnetic fields is very much a cumulative process. Its not particularly the work he did in his bedroom in the 1970s its more the cumulative exposure of a lifetime spent around initially computers and more recently wireless devices.”

“I don't disagree with anything you say in this article, but for me the question that begs to be asked is: what caused Steve Jobs' cancer? This is far more important isn't it?
It might seem difficult to believe but could it be that the very technology that he so passionately developed, the iPhones, the iPads etc that lead to his demise? Or was it the Apple Lisa?
The story goes that Steve Jobs developed his first computer in his bedroom, that he was renowned for the grueling work ethic he endured. One thing is for sure is that he spent very long hours in a high EMF environment. Given the carcinogenic nature of EMFs this does raise some questions. Of course we will never know the truth, but when you see what 70 minutes on a computer can do to your blood, see http://electricsense.com/1464/what-about-steve-jobs-exposure-to-emfs/ , imagine what a lifetime in front of a computer does.”
In Seattle we have Sonia Hoglander of HomEvolution, who started out as an engineer and went further when she saw green doesn't necessarily mean healthy.”

“If it was because of the work he did in his bedroom back in 1971, that's a very slow growing cancer. I think the number of people who spend their entire careers working on computers who *don't* get cancer would be pretty strong evidence against your theory. What caused Patrick Swayze to get cancer? Sometimes it's just in your genes.”

“I read the article and I’m not going to argue with any of it, but I think as far as weight loss goes you need to look at the bigger picture. If I said losing weight was a combination of taking the right kind of exercise, eating the right kind of food but also having the right attitude I don’t think I would really surprise many people.
The best kind of weight loss is natural weight loss. You make a decision you want to become fit and healthy, you start eating the right kind of foods you start taking exercise. I live in France so I do compare the American way with the French one. It seems what the Americans make a complete song and dance about, the French seem to do so effortlessly. They are not obsessive as a society about exercise and weight loss and yet the population is much healthier and slimmer (when you look at the stats for disease). Should we not try and learn from this instead of debating the finer points cardio training?”

“I live in France, and I love visiting the US. Inevitably I find myself making comparisons. I agree with Mark, eating healthily has nothing to do with money, I think it’s more of a cultural thing.
I love the fact that the US economy is so dynamic and that it’s such a free market and that it’s so much left to the forces of supply and demand to determine what products succeed or falter. But the downside of this is that when it comes to food, the whole concept of what constitutes a healthy diet has become totally twisted by the advertising messages over the last 3, 4, 5 decades. Compare this to France, which is much more in contact with its agricultural base, where dietary habits tend to be passed down through generations and because each region has its own specialties the tendency to eat fresh, local food is much more prevalent.
Compare the obesity rates 27% in the US, 11% in France., compare also the stats for other diseases, heart disease, cancer etc. So no, money is not the problem its more attitude to food, the food industry seems to have turned consumers into 24 hour fast food eating machines. I think this can be changed, governments need to play a role but its really up to individuals. In the meantime, Viva la France!”

“The Free Market idea is a myth.”

“Unfortunately, in the US, the almighty dollar prevails. Our "free" market isn't really free because large corporations have too much influence over our government. Our government, therefore, allows the use of rBST/rBGH in cows (which is banned in Europe/Canada, etc.) and the use of unlabeled GMOs (other countries require labeling). They also subsidize corn, which has resulted in many products containing HFCS and other corn by-products. This has also resulted in corn-fed cows which presents another set of problems since cows weren't meant to eat corn, get sick when they do, and therefore require a host of antibiotics.
In the US, most people are unaware of the dangers of the food they're eating because companies like Monsanto, who are only interested in profit, have too much influence over media and our government. This has created an unhealthy population prone to obesity.”
“Another food scare. Why? Because these big companies that produce our food are more interested in their bottom line than producing a good quality product. We dont know the exact reasons for the outbreak yet but its very likely to be the way the hens are treated or what they are fed. It turns out that the Iowa egg producer that is at the center of this salmonella outbreak has repeatedly paid fines and settled complaints over health and safety violations.
I live in France,we do have this kind of intensive production but we have a predominance of markets in every town and most villages, where people buy local produce from local farmers. You see the guy who rears the chickens. OK the eggs cost you a little more, so you just eat less of them, but what you do eat, you are not worried about what you might catch and boy do they taste good.
Shouldn't the US try and encourage small local producers more? Wouldn't consumers, the nations health and in turn the economy benefit from this?”

“With the same thought wouldn't it be a good idea for the US to make big box warehouses go extinct,thereby more smaller business's can exist with more employees. Operate elevators with paid employees and gas stations with paid attendants.”

“In the meantime we should all push for better consumer protection and transparency from producers to retailers. Do you really know where your food is coming from. This is a great example when you realize how many different brands have the same eggs in their cartons. While we are at it, we should boycott eggs that are packaged in styro foam cartons, that would be a good start.”
“This is a great article. Speaking as someone who has been electrosensitive since 2002 whats still hard for me to believe is that there is still so much ignorance surrounding this topic. There are studies out there showing the damaging effects of mobile phone radiation but these are somewhat overshadowed by the more numerous cell phone industry studies which always show the contrary. How long were we kept in the dark on tobacco? The iphone is a powerful radiation emitting device, so powerful that Apple used pulsed technology to get round the SAR safety levels. This is a great article which I have bookmarked and I cover in my blog http://electricsense.com/2010/04/19/the-app-that-apple-blocked/”
