Walmart Patented a Cart That reads Your Pulse and Temperature

Written by Dr. Joseph Mercola

In a tale that sounds like it’s straight out of the Twilight Zone, Motherboard reports that retail giant Walmart has patented a shopping cart that can read your emotions through the handle on the cart. Grip, heart rate, body temperature and cart speed would all be monitored, and the data sent to servers within the store. The information would be used to help store employees determine whether you need shopping assistance or, from a health perspective, whether you are about to have a health issue that needs immediate attention.

This is a far reach beyond apps that help you monitor your health, such as a smartphone that can count how many steps you take in a day, or an online tool that helps you count carbs and track fats you consume, like a chronometer, which also tracks nutrients. If nothing else, if a cart like this were to be introduced, besides invading your personal health space, it also would be exposing you to even more electromagnetic fields (EMFs) than you already are living with.

While it’s nearly impossible to avoid EMF exposure completely, I can’t think of any good reason why you would be “helped” by an EMF exposure like this. It’s clearly been designed to help the store, not you, so don’t be deceived. In fact, given the number of EMFs that bombard you all day long as it is, getting educated about the negative effects of EMFs and then avoiding them whenever you can is imperative to your well-being.

Particularly if you are dealing with a serious illness, it is well worth your time to reduce your EMF exposure as much as possible. If you have been told EMFs are safe and not a danger to humans, you may want to consider:

  • The telecommunication industry has manipulated federal regulatory agencies, public health authorities and professionals through powerful and sophisticated lobbying efforts leaving consumers confused and unaware of the health risks associated with EMFs
  • Any negative health effects from EMFs, similar to smoking, may not be immediately noticeable, but will likely develop gradually over time. Cell phones indeed are the cigarette public health threat of the 21st century.

The bottom line is, according to many experts, chronic, heavy exposure to wireless radiation is likely having repercussions to our health, and especially to children, who are now exposed even before birth. Indeed, you can’t escape the fact that your heart and brain are most susceptible to EMFs, to the point that recent research with mice and rats found evidence of heart tumors and damage to the brain and DNA.

In other words, whether it’s your cellphone in your pocket or the WiFi in your home or in the stores where you shop, it’s time to consider the caveat emptor of EMFs — and not only be aware of where they are and what the dangers are to your health, but to beware of purposely exposing yourself to them more than you already are.
