Hormonal imbalance affects our mood, sleep, weight, energy and even cravings. And the tricky thing about it is that it often sneaks around in the background, wreaking havoc on your health, before you even know it’s there.

EPISODE – HAREVEE PENE

BIOGRAPHY

Harvee’s first business was at 12-years-old, mowing neighbourhood lawns. Five years later, at age 17, Harvee had saved enough and bought his first investment property. He started his second business at 18 as a scaffolder, and five years later built it in to a large construction training and labour hire company. Wanting to ‘get off the tools’, Harvee started his next journey as a part-time intern in an accounting firm while studying accounting at Queensland University of Technology. Over the next five years, he helped build a change management consulting firm which helped over 600 accounting firms around Australia make positive impacts in their clients’ lives; this company was later floated on the Australian Securities Exchange.

Harvee is a TEDx speaker and has spoken on stage alongside his business idol, Michael E Gerber.

Co-author of Cashed Up : the 7 step method to pull more money, time and happiness from your business, and Ambassador for Thank you Water and B1G1, Harvee’s passion for spreading the good knows no bounds. Despite Harvee’s success, it hasn’t all been smooth sailing for him. Blindsided by testicular cancer, Harvee took this life-altering situation and with his typical true grit and courage, miraculously reduced the tumour markers by 80% in four weeks. As a numbers person, Harvee believes that family is number one. His mission is to create a business that gives him the freedom to always put family first and to help others do the same. In doing this, his mission to make a difference in the world will be accomplished

  • Wealth dynamics by Roger Hamilton was a key framework that changed the game for how he conducts his day-to-day life.

Is Constant Cell Phone Use Damaging Our Brains with Daniel Debaun?

June 4, 2019

ABOUT THE GUEST: DANIEL T. DEBAUN

 

Daniel DeBaun is an internationally recognized expert in EMF radiation, EMF shielding, and EMF-related health issues with special focus on the effect of exposure from mobile devices such as laptops, tablets, and cell phones. Daniels concern regarding the health impact of EMF emissions grew from over thirty years of engineering experience in the telecommunication industry, where he held a variety of executive positions at SAIC, Telcordia, AT&T, and Bell Labs.

THINGS DISCUSSED

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.

  • Forcing himself to smile and laugh is Travis’s first thing to do in the morning because he believes changing his physical state will lead to a change in an emotional sleep

  • Drinking water, moving around instantly, splashing some cold water in the face, getting some sun/light in the body is a go to morning routine for Travis.

Gym and ice cold shower follows and his ‘normal’ work routine starts after midday until he winds down at the evening.
