Why going "SMART" may be considered by some not an entirely smart decision
We are witnessing some of the most exciting revelations in the world today when it comes to technology and it has only just started! We're living in a very interesting & exciting time indeed. Technology, AI, communications and the internet of things have changed our lives in so many positive ways, that it's quite difficult to picture life without it. And while the world is changing for the good, when it comes electronics and tech, going all out to making your homes and buildings "SMART", may not be a decision you would want to take likely.
Why you may ask? It's the way of the future right? Yes it is, however precaution may need to be taken because of the possible negative impacts of the EMF's or ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS that come with it. Every electronic item we have which include televisions, your cellphones, WiFi routers, microwaves, electronic stoves and smart meters all emit radiation in the form of EMF's. EMF's are sometimes considered "THE INVISIBLE ENEMY" as, depending on the level of exposure, some studies have indicated that this can have a negative impact on your body and overall health, from headaches, fatigue, sleeping disorders to cataracts and even cancer.
According to the WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION (WHO), "Exposure to electromagnetic fields is not a new phenomenon. However, during the 20th century, environmental exposure to man-made electromagnetic fields has been steadily increasing as growing electricity demand, ever-advancing technologies and changes in social behaviour have created more and more artificial sources. Everyone is exposed to a complex mix of weak electric and magnetic fields, both at home and at work, from the generation and transmission of electricity, domestic appliances and industrial equipment, to telecommunications and broadcasting. There is no doubt that short-term exposure to very high levels of electromagnetic fields can be harmful to health. Current public concern focuses on possible long-term health effects caused by exposure to electromagnetic fields at levels below those required to trigger acute biological responses."
What do I think about all of this and how we can maintain our good health without being "left out" of the technological world, I'll share soon!! STAY TUNED..
