There have been COUNTLESS articles, books, research studios, TV segments, film documentaries, and misc. videos that have already included the same information about smartphones and other screens messing with our brains.
Business Insider published yet another one yesterday, “This is what your smartphone is doing to your brain — and it isn’t good.” It’s a long article full of horrifying information –one statement in particular:
Endocrinologist Robert Lustig tells Business Insider that notifications from our phones are training our brains to be in a near constant state of stress and fear by establishing a stress-fear memory pathway. And such a state means that the prefrontal cortex, the part of our brains that normally deals with some of our highest-order cognitive functioning, goes completely haywire, and basically shuts down.
“You end up doing stupid things,” Lustig says. “And those stupid things tend to get you in trouble.”
There are countless examples of “stupid things” being done and reported due to excessive smartphone and screen use. However, his statement seems to only be referencing using the phone – not being exposed to it. All sources of cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation can disrupt the blood-brain barrier, cause it to leak, and kill brain cells. Snap! Crackle! Pop!
So it’s really no surprise that
- Cell phone manufacturers have been warning shareholders that they may eventually be held liable for harm caused by their products and infrastructure.
- Insurance companies won’t do business anymore with telecom companies either.
Activist Post has published many articles about EMF and radiation exposure from smartphones and other sources of technology. Horrifying, indeed.
