The Paradox


If we have travelled by air, we would be aware that it is against air safety procedures to use your cell phones during take-off and landing since it is known to interfere with the aircraft’s navigation equipment. We are also not allowed to use or cell phones in sensitive hospitals areas like ICU’s / CCU’s as the EMI (Electromagnetic interference) from cell phones could interfere with the electronics of the critical medical devices (i.e. ECG, EEG, etc).

It can be surmised that we take severe safety measures to shield critical electronics equipment from EMI.

What about then, protecting the human body?

We too, are sensitive bioelectromagnetic organisms that are also sensitive to Electromagnetic interferences. The nerves & muscles in our body, the brain neurons & synapses, cell membranes, etc all use the body’s bio-electricity to work. However, the electricity generated in our body is weaker and can only be measured accurately by very sensitive electronic gadgets; i.e. ECG’s, EEG’s. We have witnessed the evidence in the 9th grade science experiment, when we applied a short electric pulse to a frog’s leg. The frog’s muscle contracted.

The original experiment was conducted by Luigi Galvani. In 1771, he discovered that the muscles of dead frogs legs twitched when struck by a spark.[1] This was one of the first forays into the study of bioelectricity, a field that still today studies the electrical patterns and signals of the nervous system.


“The idea grew that in the animal itself there was an indwelling electricity. We were strengthened in such an assumption of a very fine nervous fluid that during the phenomenon flowed into the muscle from the nerve, similar to electric current … “ Luigi Galvani, 1791


With all this information on hand, it would be prudent for us to minimise our exposure to EM radiation until more research have been done and conclusive evidence be shown that we are not susceptible to the effects of EM radiation. We human being had learnt how to manage fire . . . . this lead to the advancement of TECHNOLOGY. We now need to also learn how to manage this NEW TECHNOLOGY.

Life without our cell phones, without our social media, without electricity is impossible. But, using common sense, and advanced safety technology, we can continue to reap its full benefit, allowing technology to advance further whilst perpetuating the human civilization . . . .
