We love our technology and our gadgets, whether we are needing it for our jobs, keeping up with the demands of life, or staying current with today’s newest and coolest! Our smart phones, smart watches, wireless headphones, laptops, tablets, video gaming systems, virtual home assistants, etc.
We may feel we get huge benefits from this technology but what about the downside to it all? If you take away the entertainment or the instant gratification of these products, what is left behind. Are these wildly smart and creative inventions good for us on all levels? Down deep, many people know the answer to that is no. Increasingly, everyday radiation is being shown to have adverse health risks, yet we continue to add more and more to our home and work environment. I am certainly not a naysayer of technology; I believe with modern day technology has come some of the greatest discoveries especially in medicine and health. But it is very possible that our daily exposure to all this technology is also harming our health, and those harmful effects are happening right at the cell level, the foundation of our bodies. We are literally made of about 70 trillion cells and our future health is dependant on how those cells function. It stands to reason then, that we would want to protect our cells and prevent any harm that may come to them. Afterall we are only as healthy as our cells!
Even knowing that these tech toys are not improving our internal body functions, we are not likely to ban these life luxuries from our homes for good. That would be an exceedingly difficult feat to achieve, and not completely necessary.
How Can We Stay Current with the Times but Mitigate the Damage of Everyday Radiation?
How do we balance the health risks from everyday radiation and everyday convenience? Luckily, there are some quite simple adjustments and additions we can make to significantly reduce our exposure without dramatically changing the way we live.
All we can do is our best, and with more knowledge we can make better choices in protecting ourselves and our loved ones in a world that is rapidly changing around us.
