Electro Magnetic Pollution, Cell Phones, and Realtor's Health

As a new blogger I am excited to read all the responses to my earlier post regarding "to microwave or not?".  One of the themes  which emerged from readers comments that I wanted to underscore was that we live in a world surrounded by electromagnatic energy and pollution.  That the mere fact I am writing on this computer highlights the almost impossibility of everygetting away from constant bombardment of  electro magnetic fields.  Many experts are begining to agree that EMFs are indeed responsible for many illnesses (such as chronic fatigue syndrome, cancers, hormone imbalances, etc....the list goes on and on).  Read link.  Even the EPA acknowledges such dangers.  My wife is a canary in the cave-everytime she speaks on the cell phone her ear and head start hurting.  (And has made an effort to move away from the cell phone addicted culture).  

I have had unexplained, extreme dental and adrenal problems for many years now-and have also been glued to my cell phone for years.  Is there a connection?  I like to think of myself as someone who lives a healthy, more "green" lifestyle.  I exercise, eat organic food, take herbal supplements, rarely experience stress (am a firm believer in living in the now) and am vegetarian.   Why the health concerns, then?  I truly believe it has tgo do with the amount of time I spend on the cell phone.  

We Realtors cannot escape using cell phones.  Our job demands that we use mobile phones (in addition to spending a lot of time in front of computer screens and driving in the car).  I have done a lot of research on products out there that claim to block EMF.  The two products I use now are Tecno Cell Phone Protection and WaveShield Radiation Reducing Head Se t.  Not sure if they help but at least I feel a bit more piece of mind knowing that I am using something to block EMF.

Good blog,  I believe that the cell phone at everyones ears is and does create medical problems.  I'm not sure if there is much research on it yet but I think the connection is there...
