Our continual reliance on wireless technology has increased our exposure to EMF ( Electro Magnetic Field) radiation like never before. While technology companies continue to produce faster and smarter wireless technology at rapid rates, they don't seem to ever address safety issues when it comes to EMF exposure and our health. (Mainly because they don't have to.) The good news is that independent researchers and scientists, some previously featured on this podcast, have performed animal studies and written up human case studies concerning EMF exposure. That growing body of evidence suggests that EMF exposure is certainly not benign, absolutely impacts mammalian cells, and the World Health Organization should, at the least, readdress the dangers of EMF exposure. It has been linked to brain tumors, heart tumors, ADHD and cognitive impairment, neurological issues and infertility issues. It seems especially harmful when exposed as a child or while in-utero. Many health advocates call EMF the "new smoking." Yet, it's everywhere and only getting worse. As my guest for this podcast aptly puts: "We can no longer do a controlled experiment on EMF exposure, because it's everywhere. We are all currently part of the experiment."
Dr. Pritchard is a researcher and professor at Bournemouth University in the UK and a professor of Psychiatry at The University of Southampton School of Medicine. He is internationally known for his work on suicides and child abuse. Recently, he has been using data provided by the World Health Organization to document changing rates in deaths due to neurological diseases in developed nations. These neurological diseases include ALS, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkison's Disease, and early-onset dementia. The trend Dr. Pritchard has documented is significantly increased rates of deaths overall, with the USA having the highest increase over the last several years. He has also documented more cases of early-onset dementia, as early as forties and fifties, especially in the US. What is causing this increase? Dr. Pritchard offers his theory ( and more) on this podcast.
