Safe Technology

there are simple, painless habits we can adopt to substantially reduce our microwave exposure, such as turning your phone to airplane mode when not in use, or turning off your Wi-Fi router before bed.

Consumer Demand for Safer Tech

“The industry responds to what people want in their gadgets: more data, faster downloads, more pixels,” he said. “But there is not an incentive toward changing the signal forms, for example, so that these biological cascades are not triggered.”

Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable.”

“Smart” Technology Use 

Here are some tips from the founder of Scientists for Wired Technology.

At one’s home or office, Apple iPhones/iPads, Microsoft phones/tablets, Google phones/tablets and many other various Android phones/tablets can be connected to the Internet via Ethernet wires and USB-to-Ethernet adapters. This is the only recommended way to update system software or stream/download a video on these devices.

Away from the home/office, I still use a phone to send/receive texts, send/receive limited calls, look up info on the internet and get directions — using my $30/mo. T-Mobile plan, but I never stream video wirelessly. I also keep my phone’s antennas off all the time except for a few minutes at the top of every hour from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm weekdays to retrieve the texts/voicemails that have collected on the servers, since I last responded to my phone’s alarm that I set — reminding me to check my messages. In order to use a phone this way, one needs only 5 µW/m² (about -50 dBm) of peak pulsed, data-modulated, Radiofrequency Microwave (RF/MW) Radiation.

Unfortunately, 4G/5G so-called “small cells” will transmit RF Microwave Radiation on the sidewalks and into bedroom windows 1,000,000 to 5,000,000 µW/m² (about 0 dBm) in order to sell consumers a Wireless 4k television/video subscription. See 

Fiber Makes Dollars and Sense

Instead of permitting big telecoms to control connectivity, several towns across Canada and the United States have implemented local fiber-to-the-home programs. With experts warning that ”5G” wireless networks are ripe with technical glitches including line-of-sight issues, obstacles, environmental effects, and electromagnetic interference, direct fiber-to-the-home just makes sense. In most instances, fiber networks also cost less to install and maintain than wireless networks. To add to the absurdity of microcells, “5G” does not even exist yet and it is unlikely that when and if it does it will deliver the data speed it promises.

While wired  fiber optics are currently the best way to connect, let’s not rule out the possibility of a truly safe and sustainable mobile communication method being invented.

Safe Connectivity 

Scientists for Wired Technology explains “A MUCH BETTER solution is the one these obscenely profitable companies are trashing — to install one-set of publicly-owned, fiber-optic cables to every home and business for 1,000 Mbps speeds for $30-$40 per month, over which private companies can offer their coveted, competing television/video services.”
