    As for Electromagnetic radiation goes, the sun does give off radiation. It's natural. We are children of the sun - it's radiation is necessary for us to live. Ever heard of a little thing called Vitamin D? Yeah, our skin needs the UV radiation the sun gives off to produce it to keep our bodies healthy. Our bodies can take it, but our bodies also know that too much is bad for us. We know our limits, so we seek shade or we get burned.

    It's the same with cellphones, WiFi, etc. While the radiation emitted from the electronic devices is NOT natural, our bodies SHOULD know our limits, but so many people don't listen to the messages our bodies tell us. It's easy to say the sun is millions of times stronger than a computer, cellphone, cell tower, or WiFi router. It's just fact. But what is closer in proximity to us everyday? Just because you don't think you feel any effects of overexposure to your cellphone or your WiFi doesn't mean your body hasn't tried to tell you to stay away... or at least "seek some shade."

    Here's a little fact... Microwave ovens (yuck!) use radiation to vibrate water molecules to cause friction to ultimately heat so-called "food." The average microwave oven operates at 2.45 gigahertz (GHz). Everyone knows that if you stuck your head in there and turned it on, you'd die... or at least get cancer or some crazy disease.

    Here's another fact. WiFi routers operate at 2.4 GHz (most common) and 5 GHz (newer "faster" routers).

    Cellphones operate at anywhere between 800 megahertz (MHz) to 2.7GHz in the US, depending on your service provider.

    Plenty of computers work at 2.5GHz, maybe less if it's older, most likely much higher (closer to 3GHz or even higher than that) if they're newer.

    Now, WiFi routhers, cellphones, and computers seem to be in the same boat frequency-wise. And admittedly these are not concentrating their radiation at one spot to specifically cause heating. I don't know about you, but I NEVER want to sit near a WiFi router, knowing that it operates at the same frequency, if not higher, than the average microwave! But at least you're not holding it up against your head like you would a cellphone!

    I've always noticed I felt warmer when I was sitting near the WiFi router in the public library... And I always noticed my ear would feel unnaturally warm/hot after talking on a cellphone for more than 5 minutes. It's no wonder, since they work around the same frequencies as MICROWAVE OVENS!

    Oh, and there actually IS scientific evidence that proves that radiation from cellphones, computers, or just electricity in general can harm people. It's just suppressed by the companies that benefit monetarily from these technologies. Just tell me why in Sweden they actually recognize Electro-Hypersensitivity as an actual medical condition? Did you know in Germany they've prohibited WiFi in all elementary schools?

    And I've researched several articles by scientists that claim there is no way at all that radiation from electronic devices is bogus... but the only reasons they give aren't scientific. The tests they do on people who claim they're Electromagnetically Sensitive are NOT done to see the accumulative effects, just instant ones. Then after the tests are done, they poke fun at people by calling them Tin-foil hat wearers and they use "the science is settled" mumbo-jumbo without giving PROOF that these technologies are indeed harmless. Needless to say, that is NOT scientific.

    To limit exposure, I DON'T use WiFi - I use wired connections. I don't use cellphones - I use landlines. I don't watch TV. I don't set my laptop on my lap and I use a USB mouse and keyboard so I don't have to sit too close to the laptop and I don't have to be touching it all day.

    Diet wise, I'm raw, low-fat, and vegan. Feeding myself easily digestible food that's highly nutritious makes it easier for my body to fight off any foreign toxins, radiation, etc. Hopefully it'll be enough.
