This is just a hunch, not a fact which I can prove.
But I have talked to my acupuncturist, who said that there have been a few studies done about this.
~Soil depletion or contamination, resulting in compromised/toxic food?
~Radiation and wave frequencies zapping the nervous systems of our kids in utero?
Again it's just a hunch, but I still wonder if when we sit in front of the TV, we are zapping our nervous systems (unawares) with the waves emitted by the TV. Microwaves: Ditto. Radio device chips: Ditto. Not to mention computers, which we use day in and day out.
What happens to the delicate fetus, still developing and so vulnerable, when a pregnant mother sits in front of the TV or stands near the microwave oven?
I wonder how many expectant mothers experience their fetus dodging ultrasound wands? This was indeed the experience of a family member of mine. If this is a common experience, shouldn't we realize that the unborn baby is dodging the ultrasound waves because they are hurting him/her on some level? Or at least, disturbing him/her?
Sometimes, scientists can research things, see no evidence and say "there's no harm"----and still be wrong. Intuition is an important thing to listen to. If in doubt, why not take the protective view?
Let's not forget that waves of all kinds----xrays, gamma waves, microwaves et al----all penetrate and all are invisible. Since we live with these frequencies in our environment all the time, we may not be aware of its over-stimulation and zapping of our nervous systems. Be that as it may, perhaps we are the worst equipped to say that electrical currents and wave frequencies really have no effect at all. That may be just an illusion, being so adapted and not knowing any other way of life, literally since the moment of our birth.
I can remember once going for a hike on a mountain near our home. We were walking up a fire trail underneath the phone lines. The moment we set foot on a path away from those overhead phone lines, the air was suddenly still. Calm. An inner sense of healing and uplifting peace filled my being. And I did not have that same feeling when walking underneath those electric lines. Both me and my hiking partner felt it. Not just me alone.
In Waldorf Schools (also known as Rudolf Steiner Schools) where TV and computer influences are looked down on, and where teachers discourage parents from exposing their kids to them at home, the teachers say that they can tell the difference between a TV/computer kid and those raised without them. Without even asking the parents. Because the kids who are raised at home with minimal TV and computer exposure have greater concentration levels, they don't emulate their screen heroes in their behavior, and they are less distractible. Sound like ADD could be the result of these wave frequencies? Could the phenomenon of youthful violence be an advanced form of that ADD, with highly and literally *charged* nervous systems stirring them to violence?
If we are born into an electricity-infused environment, whether at home or in the hospital, how can we know what the effects are----or are not-----when we experience these invisible frequencies from the first breath? We don't even know what life would be like without them, or what we ourselves would be like, feel like, live like if electrical and radiation waves didn't exist all around us, at every moment of our lives. Even zapping us in our sleep, possibly at least, as the currents from electrical gadgets circulate around us in our beds.
Why would radiation waves of all kinds and electrical currents *not* affect our nervous systems?
What would our collective character be and how would crime rate go down if we all cut back on these invisible, unsuspected and (hereby theorized) polluters?
