[Air-L] wireless (1 of 3a)

Chris, that's a good idea to turn wifi off when not using it. I've
done it in the past, and am going to start doing so again.
I can't help but compare the cigarette industry when considering, or
validating, the position taken by cell phone companies and the studies
guided and funded by them. As I drive by elementary schools that have
huge cell phone towers masked as palm trees on campus, or watch babies
playing with their moms' cell phones, I feel hopeful that there is no
correlation. This is a very important study and I hope that if there
is a connection between pediatric cancer and wireless in public
domains, we humans discover it and take action before the consequences
I met with Dr. Black a couple of weeks ago for a follow up exam and am
creating a SaveEvery page for his patients to access information. So
if you find any pertinent information, please do share! Feel free to
access and add to this SaveEvery page for Cedars (I'm having a graphic
designer work on esthetics, and this isn't my forte). The site is
www.saveevery.com. The Username is Brain and Password is
saveeverybrain. I've added a couple more links to it based on this
discussion, and appreciate unbiased information. I tend to be biased
because I have been so personally affected by this terrible disease.

I actually have started going back to landlines whenever I can; I take the phone off of my person whenever I can and I place it as far away as possible; I almost always use an old school ear piece..I don't like the ones that go in the ear canal because that is not good for the ear and I have worked in studios (film, tv and radio) for over 20 years; and I turn off the wi fi when I am not using it. There is too much that we don't know and too many people like Johnnie Cochran who I had an opportunity to produce once who live on their phones. I have taken a page from my students, and I text more, or send email while plugged in to Ethernet or other sources. The headaches went away years ago when I started doing that but the electrical power lines have always been a problem even before cell phones and the cell phone towers have made things worse. In my research I found that one prominent researcher told all of his folks at one time to only use the phones when absolutely necessary or to not use them at all because of the dangers. I wish I had kept a full log of everything but I will check my online bookmarks. I love the devices but I am wary of them too because one can never trust industry to tell the entire truth when it definitely will impact profits.
