Is Constant Cell Phone Use Damaging 

Our Brains?

 

Telecom insider Daniel T. DeBaun reveals health risks of mobile devices in his book, Radiation Nation: The Fallout of Modern Technology, and offers solutions for minimizing danger.

 

According to former telecommunications industry executive Daniel T. DeBaun, the constant and ever-increasing exposure to Electromagnetic Frequency (EMF) radiation emitted by cell phones, tablets, laptops, WiFi and smart meters is one of the most critical health issues facing our society today. 

 

Not only can EMF radiation adversely affect those of us who use mobile devices, but studies indicate that EMF radiation is especially harmful to our children, many of whom begin using wireless communication devices before they learn to talk, says DeBaun, who with son Ryan co-authored the book, Radiation Nation: The Fallout of Modern Technology. DeBaun says that a recent study of 350 children aged 6 months to 4 years found that nearly all the children (96.6%) used mobile devices and most started using them before age 1.

 

In Radiation Nation, DeBaun summarizes the latest scientific research linking EMF radiation exposure to everything from minor pains like headaches, to very serious concerns, such as fertility problems and cancer. Researchers found those males who used laptops for only a few hours showed reduced sperm count; women who placed cell phones in their bras developed tumors in the breasts; regular cell phone users have developed rare forms of brain tumors, says DeBaun.

 

Even though EMFs emitted from mobile devices can affect our biology, DeBaun says that doesn't necessarily mean that we must give up our gadgets. Fortunately, there are simple and effective steps we can take to minimize the risks posed by EMF emissions, and we explain those steps in the book, says DeBaun.

 

In Radiation Nation, Readers Will Learn:

  • What EMF radiation is and how it affects the body biologically
  • The major health risks, including fertility issues for both men and women, DNA damage, cell mutation, cancer and other serious health risks
  • The latest scientific studies are broken down by disease or condition
  • How EMF radiation specifically affects children and those suffering from electromagnetic hypersensitivity
  • Why the current safety standards for EMF are insufficient and need to be rewritten
  • The EMF sources of greatest concern
  • The most practical precautions you can take for yourself and your loved ones

 

There hasn't been one complete source for information regarding the EMF radiation safety issue. We wanted to change that. We've worked incredibly hard to write an easy-to-understand book. We think of the book Radiation Nations the ultimate EMF safety layman's guide for those looking to educate themselves, says DeBaun.

My Indian Journey

My Indian Journey

February 12, 2019

Welcome to this week’s episode where I talk about my transformative trip to India:

* Carla’s journey started in Delhi after a long wait in the airport and witnessing the hustle and bustle straight away headed to her hostel. Her first stop was at an orphanage in the slum area of Delhi.

* Carla’s first day at the orphanage was really engaging where she was starting with nursery rhymes

* As Carla found her rhythm she would start the day with yoga before starting teaching the kids their ABCs

* Carla found it challenging with the cold weather and doing burpees to warm herself up

* The richness of culture and the street vendors, the spirituality of the area and the hectic nature of the Delhi took Carla and divine intervention from a priest that helped her when she had a case of Delhi belly!

* Carla experienced a traditional Indian head massage

* Carla then went to the spiritual city of Varanasi on the overnight train and onto Agra being enthralled by the sights of the Taj Mahal then onto the Pink City in Jaipur

* Carla then returned to Delhi where she then caught a flight to Goa

* Carla’s Goa trip was transformative – after spending 2 hours each morning with her yoga master learning Ashtanga, doing meditation and chanting. It also gave her a chance to work on intention goal-setting for the year ahead.

* Carla talks about her “Wheel of Life” and focuses on each aspect of her life, committing to her goals and using them affirmatively saying “I am….”

* Carla challenges you to ask yourself whether you are ordinary or extraordinary

* Carla also asks what song sums you up? Carla’s currently “Walking on Sunshine!” and who would you invite around to dinner if you had a chance? Carla’s fantasy dinner guests would be Oprah Winfrey, His Holiness the Dalai Lama and James Corden as Carla loves “Gavin and Stacey”
