Commercial for Asthma Medication Features Unsafe Use of Technology. Respiratory Health Is Affected by Cell Phone and WiFi Radiation and Electrical Pollution (Electrosmog).

Respiratory health issues are not to be taken lightly. In this new commercial for asthma medication, most of the actors are using or exposed to digital and/or wireless technology. At the 47 second mark, there is woman using a laptop on her lap which is a no-no even according to 20+ year old outdated FCC safety standards.
Unfortunately it’s not unusual to see ads, TV programs, and films which feature actors using technology in ways that are not safe because most people in real life do this as well. Art imitates life. It’s especially unfortunate though when this is depicted in marketing campaigns for medications.
I already wrote an article about how exposure to cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation (Radio Frequency Radiation) and Electrical Pollution (Electrosmog) can cause or worsen respiratory issues.
Since this particular medication ad features a woman with a laptop in her lap, I’m only going to focus only on how that is unsafe even according to outdated federal safety standards and manufacturer warnings.
In 2010, Lloyd Burrell from ElectricSense produced a video where he measured exposure levels from his laptop.
