In less than a generation, cellphones and the internet have revolutionized virtually every aspect of our lives, transforming how we work, socialize and communicate. But what are the health consequences of this invisible convenience?
As a mother of teenagers, I am concerned with the shadowy side of wireless technology, and its impact on our children. I am troubled by the increased health risks and how it is sociologically impacting children's development and behavior. As a citizen and consumer, I am disturbed by the business effects behind the wireless revolution and its ubiquitous use in schools, at work and at home.
