Like cigarettes and the toxic chemicals before it, emerging science is revealing the concerning reality that some people may suffer health impacts from radiation emitted by wireless devices.
We meet four people who are struggling with a variety of illnesses from wireless radiation – a breast cancer survivor who had carried her cell phone in her bra, a long term cell phone user with brain cancer, and a fit, seemingly healthy couple with neurological impacts now identified as being linked to wireless data transmission radiation. Scientists, health researchers, physicians, and other experts document the links and concerns about this technology.
The multi-billion-dollar telecommunications industry goes to great lengths to lobby congress, influence policy-makers, and dispute any scientific data correlating wireless technology to potential health risks, which is reminiscent of the lead, asbestos, and tobacco industries before them.
Generation Zapped is a powerfully moving and thought-provoking documentary, daring to shine light on this invisible inconvenience, and empowers audiences to understand how to reduce their exposure to protect themselves and their families.
“A wifi classroom is like the inside of a microwave oven set at very low power. Children are exposed to that wifi radiation six hours every school day, five days a week, and for several months during the year” – Magda Havas, Associate Professor of Environmental and Resource Studies, Trent University, Canada
