“The past went thataway”

We are launching NixRay on the thirtieth birthday of the Internet. In March of 1989, 30 year old Tim Berners-Lee, a software engineer at CERN Laboratories, initiated the connecting of individual computers into a free network of shared information, and the world began surfing the Web.
It was a mere 11 years ago that Apple released the first iPhone, marrying telephone and computer in a sleek and pocketable package of unparalleled technological function.
Copied and honed, personal devices quickly became and continue to become, faster, prettier, and cheaper, catalyzing a global paradigm shift. In every aspect of life, professional, educational, and social, we are expected to stay connected.
We love our devices, personal gateways to the world’s information and disinformation, and we love the free global communication they afford. Our cell phones are with us at all times, checking on our kids, and sick parents. They navigate us through life, and we need them with us when we need to call for road service.
Yet, the vast body of information, entertainment and communication our devices deliver does not come to us by magic, but is carried on skin skimming electromagnetic waves.
Although invisible, Radio Frequency waves are undeniably real and are thermally impacting to specific sensitive body tissues. This is amply substantiated by empirical peer reviewed science. Research data demonstrates that sperm quality, the delicate tissues of fetuses, infants and children, as well as the cells of breasts, salivary glands, eyes and ears, have greater susceptibility to Radio Frequency thermal damage.
The tech industry has long countered any questioning of the safety of unprotected and prolonged body contact with cell phones and laptops, as well as other types of technology using WiFi, and the Internet is full of skewed studies funded by the telecom industry. Their main argument is a specious one, based upon the fact that Radio Frequency doesn’t impact human tissue by ionization, and therefore cannot cause cancer. While this is true, it conveniently ignores the harmful thermal potential of skin skimming radio frequency waves, which can do damage by over-heating shallow nerve tissue, disabling the body’s ability to heal, or in some cases, to fight tumors.
Meanwhile, most technologically advanced nations, other than the U.S., ban the use of WiFi devices by or near young children. Belgium has just prohibited 5G. France, Russia, China, Australia, and Germany have placed restrictions on the use of devices by young children, and limit the time that WiFi is active in all classrooms, where between students personal devices and school teaching screens, Radio Frequency levels can be extremely high.
Israel regularly tests Radio Frequency levels in classrooms, and requires that teacher’s screens be hard wired. Other recommendations also include maintaining distance from wireless phone bases, and modems, and using the speaker function on cell phones, keeping the phone away from ears and crania. We all know that weird hot tingle that happens when you hold your phone to your ear for even a few minutes.
Pulsing electromagnetic currents are unseen. They are still mysterious, even to scientists. The prophetic sci-fi writer, Philip K. Dick, who wrote Bladerunner, said, in 1978, “Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away.” Denying the possible negative impact of too much body closeness to Radio Frequency transmitting and receiving devices is to deny science and reality. All tools are potentially constructive or destructive. As with any tool, its function improves with correct use.
Our use of AI and personal devices will likely increase. It calls us to be aware, informed, and to use any means possible to protect our own bodies, and those of our children, by shielding our devices, and choosing to demand safe technology. Banks and other financial institutions now urge their clients to carry chipped cards in RFID protected wallets. At NixRay, we wholeheartedly agree, and that’s why our products provide RFID shielding.
By all means, protect your wealth.
But above all, protect your health.
