    This gentleman is only partly right. The real issue is not Internet usage as such, but the fact that EM radiation is DIRECTLY destroying certain areas of neurological structures in the human brain. Connections to frontal lobe functions are atrophying away, and the rear brain or cerebellum is taking on some of these higher order features as a compensatory function. This replaces higher order executive planning and decision-making skills, with rudimentary survival techniques.
    It is obvious the worldwide grid is a hazard to all biological life, and is destroying birds, mammals, trees, food crops, farm animals, even bacterial and microbial systems in the ground.
    Our political and economic constructs now rely on individuals who (by any reasonable measure) are insane and unable to make intelligent decisions due to cumulative frontal lobe damage. This has been going on for over three generations. EM petitions calling for different EM exposures standards are a pathetic and dysfunctional joke. The entire “wireless” infrastructure, including military applications, needs to be shut down immediately. There is no other intelligent option.
    The continuing discussion or analysis on whether these systems are a biohazard or not, has been a mote point for over 60 years. Scientists like Allen Frey and the Russian Academy of Sciences studied EM radiation effects on military radar personnel in the late 50’s, and were already quite aware of these incapacitating health issues. You are being intentionally exposed to EM radiation, and it’s destroying you and your children. Your governmental agencies are criminal, insane, and extremely dangerous. It’s time to pull the plug on Tesla and his nightmare world.

  2. Hi Paul,
    Your points about the possible health effects of RF are well taken. Nicholas Carr, (the guy interviewed in the video above and author of The Shallows), is coming from a different angle–how just being on the internet (whether with wired or wireless connection) changes our brains. For example, it’s affecting people’s ability (because of such things as hyperlinks which clog our working memory) to do “deep reading.”
    “The Shallows” is a very interesting read and provocative. Another book I’ve read recently related to this is “Buddha’s Brain” by Rick Hanson..

    • “Rats in Skinner boxes with metal electrodes implanted into their nucleus accumbens will repeatedly press a lever which activates this region, and will do so in preference over food and water, eventually dying from exhaustion. In rodent physiology, scientists reason that the medial forebrain bundle is the pleasure center of rats. If a rat is given the choice between stimulating the forebrain or eating, it will choose stimulation to the point of exhaustion.[6]”
