Monfredo: Powerful Documentary - Generation Zapped - A Must See This Thursday
Sunday, April 22, 2018
This issue is global, and most researchers fully support and promote access to the internet in all schools. No one is saying do away with technology. However, medical doctors, scientist, toxicologists do advise caution and risk reduction around wireless radiation in places, especially, where pregnant women and children live, learn and play and strongly suggest hardwired internet connectivity. In addition, a growing body of scientific evidence indicates Wi-Fi and cellular radiation can cause extensive biological harm. Thus, it is important that there be an open dialogue about this topic and hope that everyone within the community, especially those who have the power to make changes are opened open-minded to this most important issue. Let’s not unduly minimize this issue and say that the research is over exaggerated! Remember that was said about tobacco in the 1950’s.
Now the public has an opportunity to make up their mind about this issue and look for ways to use good practices as they use technology. A free screening of the award-winning film, Generation Zapped, takes place at Clark University, Thursday, April 26 at 6:30 pm, Room 218, Jefferson Hall. The second-floor screening venue is directly off the Main University Green, at 950 Main Street in Worcester, Massachusetts.
The event is sponsored by the Worcester Info Team for Health and Generation Zapped.
Directed by Los Angeles-based film-maker, Sabine El Gemayal, Generation Zapped addresses the timely issue of adverse health impacts of radio frequency electromagnetic fields. The film offers timely information on research and policy, as well as solutions for protecting public safety by using technology safely and responsibly.
Worldwide, scientists and serious independent observers have been studying the EMF/RF issue for years. They report that even very weak fields can have cumulative biological effects, and humans and other forms of life are being exposed to at least 100,000 times the level of wireless radiation we were exposed to only a few decades ago.
Meanwhile, new wireless devices continue to enter the market without any proper pre-market testing or post-market health monitoring. Thousands of studies point to the wisdom of taking protective measures. In the absence of sufficient action from regulating bodies and industry, people are on their own regarding precautionary measures. Generation Zapped deals with this is and explains how wireless technology was brought to market with no safety testing, and how the government agency responsible for establishing public radiation exposure limits has no mandate to ensure those limits are biologically safe. The film further discusses the cancer classification given by the World Health Organization.
This documentation deals with adults and children experiencing symptoms of microwave sickness, or electrical sensitivity. Many individuals today suffer from unexplained headaches, insomnia, nosebleeds, fatigue, skin heating/rashes/tingling, cognitive impairment, behavior issues, learning disabilities, anxiety, and depression.
Consumers seldom connect these ailments to microwave radiation exposures and the medical community in most countries has not been trained to recognize electrical sensitivities. Patients are left to endure the effects of microwave radiation with no guidance to reduce their exposures. . Many physicians in the United States are seeing patients every day with electrical intolerance induced by overexposure in their environment.
Generation Zapped provides an accessible, compelling and engaging presentation for those new to the wireless issue as well as appealing to those who are already aware and want to learn more.
Research states that we encounter a hundred thousand times the level of radiation from wireless technologies than we did decades ago. Yet the safety standards set by federal regulatory agencies are outdated. From new wireless devices such as smart phones, tablets and baby monitors to the latest “Internet of Things” continue to enter the market without any proper pre-market testing or post-market monitoring. Too little is done to ensure public safety and awareness.
So how can we uncover the facts and reduce our exposure to limit the associated health risks during this technological revolution? GENERATION ZAPPED attempts to do just that.
Following the screening, there will be a Question and answer session facilitated by the sponsoring organization, the Worcester Info Team for Health (WITH), which is comprised of knowledgeable local volunteer activists. WITHs mission is to support Worcester decision-makers and others in learning about and mitigating public health risks posed by the rapid roll-out of wireless devices and infrastructure. The goal is to work towards collaboration on finding creative solutions to a difficult and increasingly worrisome social-technical problem.
Lisa Lavine Nagy, M.D., government liaison for the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, explains, “Scientific literature has proven that exposure to wireless radiation is responsible for numerous medical symptoms and conditions. A landmark study by the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) has proven that DNA damage as well as brain and heart tumors develop in mice exposed to cell phone radiation. Other studies report lowered sperm count in men as well as damage to the fetal brain when a pregnant woman uses the cell phone. A leading autism researcher at Harvard has observed links between wireless radiation exposure and autism.”
Dr. Nagy stated, “We must apply the precautionary principle and protect the public from potential harm with safe practices. These practices should be based on new data as well as the health experiences of people worldwide who are using these technologies.”
