"In less than a generation, cell phones and the Internet have revolutionized virtually every aspect of our lives, transforming how we work, socialize and communicate. But what are the health consequences of this invisible convenience?

As a mother of teenagers I am concerned with the shadow side of wireless technology on our children. I am troubled by the increased health risks and how it is sociologically impacting children’s development and behavior. As a citizen and consumer, I am disturbed by the business ethics behind the wireless revolution and its ubiquitous use in schools, at work, and at home.

I love technology and the many conveniences it has offered us, yet I believe that increased transparency is vital, including pre-market testing, post-market monitoring, and revised policies and regulations.

Finally, I invite audiences to consider the case for honoring the precautionary principle when it comes to the adoption of wireless technology – to simply slow down, turn it off at night and “plug it in” until more extensive research is validated and complete."

-- Sabine El Gemayel (Director of Generation Zapped)

If you’ve read any of my blogs or articles in the past few months, you’re probably aware that I am extremely concerned about the hazards that unbridled wireless technology can pose to your physical and mental health. From a restless quest for sleep to possible risks of cancer, I believe electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are far more serious than their promoters want you to think.

Once scoffed at for suggesting that cellphone usage could lead to brain cancer, I now can say that the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified radiofrequency (RF) radiation — the type used by cellphones to send signals — as a “possible human carcinogen.” Additionally, a 2017 meta-analysis found that long-term cellphone use (minimum of 10 years) may be associated with an increased risk of glioma.

But that’s not all. In 2014, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) posted “We recommend caution in cellphone use,” on their website — only to mysteriously remove it, along with a section that addressed potential risks of cellphone usage for children, a few weeks later, with no explanation at all. But why the backpedaling? A debate on this controversy is apparently afoot, and this “Generation Zapped” shows why YOU should be concerned enough to demand that the CDC explain itself.

The fact is FCC and FDA standards for exposure to EMFs are outdated. Written long before the modern-age EMF onslaught, they do not take into consideration the cumulative exposures that radiofrequency waves have on your health, especially in the face of new research that shows a correlation between EMFs and brain tumors, breast cancer, infertility, autism (with prenatal overexposure), cellular damage, and as mentioned, disruptive sleep and melatonin secretion.

I know if you have children you’re probably concerned about their “screen” time with computers and cellphones. Simply turning them off and unplugging them at night will help them and you — but as this film shows, there may be more that you need to think about.
