    Enjoy? Is that a command? I have been in high RF environments for 50 years. The last 35 in cellular. The science is attractive in the clip but the application of the science is voodoo.

    I am nearly 68 and my only problem comes from being too fat. I doubt RF exposure caused that.

    I can personally attest that I have this big wire antenna hanging up outside and it's picking up a lot of strange sounding voices I never heard before.

    I will give up my wireless devices when they pry them from my cold dead hands

    The problem is the users who use wireless devices while driving--they'll kill you.

    I don't see a skull and crossbones on my electric meter. Maybe I should call them and demand an explanation.

    What science?

    All I watched was an otherwise intelligent sounding individual with good presentation skills on a stage at an academic institution invoking a lot of abstract connotation, unsupported generalizations and suggestive suspicions. The entire presentation was chock full of conjecture without any solid established basis, scientific foundation and was clearly devoid of supportive fact.

    In particular, the attempt during the presentation to make some kind of correlation between the biological damaging effects of UV exposure while making generalized similarities relating it to RF exposure (while using photos of babies and children in the process) is nothing short of quackery and has nothing to do with any science I am aware of.

    The presentation came across similar to others who stand before a listening audience making their plea to start a new movement of believers in supernatural phenomenon and UFO's.

    UFOs certainly exist. My first several attempts at this resulted in Unstable Frequency Oscillators.

    I wouldn’t insult UFOlogists like that.

    Are we sure this wasn’t an outtake from a rejected “Safe Auto” insurance commercial? I was reminded of their current “Pepperoni Plates” informercial spoof...
