One can imagine two very different futures. In one, these stories appear on the front pages of The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. The Food and Drug Administration suspends cell phone sales, and the Federal Communications Commission shuts down cell towers. Cities stop building Wi-Fi networks. Internet cafes dismantle antennas and install cables. Public service announcements tell people to put wires back on their home phones and computers. Wireless technology takes a place in history beside other mistakes like lead water pipes, asbestos insulation, thalidomide and DDT.
In the other future nothing changes. The news media continue to ignore those stories, and many others like them. Governments issue no warnings, and take no steps to protect the public or the environment.
We are waist-deep in "the other future." Add in many consumers' growing dependence on and addiction to cell phone products and apps, plus utility, educational and medical groups at the alter of wireless technology, and maybe we are neck-deep?
Many people have symptoms of Radiofrequency Sickness/Microwave Sickness but are unaware of the environmental cause. The growing number of people realizing they have this sensitivity must deal with a culture that would rather ridicule their sensitivity or call it psychological than take in the truth. We are a consumer culture and people like their stuff. They like to point out that all these microwave devices are legal. Of course, this is due to morbidly outdated and lax federal standards. (see Firstenberg's article for historical details)
The questions remain: Are we a stupid culture, unable to understand new information, even with facts staring us in the face? Are we a gullible culture that believes what the authorities tell us even if our experience says otherwise? Are we a cruel and selfish culture that wants what we want no matter what affect it has on others? Before these questions can be wholly answered, the culture must be exposed to the truth and given a chance to understand. And that it where Mr. Firstenberg and the rest of us are working.
Note: Arthur Firstenberg, for his early and continued work and articles bringing the reality of bio-effects from RF/MW to light, is now designated as a FDNHB Hero.
