i am really afraid . dear friends i was involved in a serious discussion with some of my learned friends and i was convinced that the people who lived say 50 years ago were quite safe since they were not surrounded by the radiations emitted by the modern gadgets which are surrounding us. the microwaves, the computers, the television sets,the air conditioners, the mobile telephones, all of these and many other things emit enough electromagnetic radiations to disturb the aura of positive energy around us!! and as the aura s affected , we start getting affected by our surrounding pollutants and our energy, our resistance , our immunity starts falling which ultimately makes us prone to many infections and hence diseases. can we save ourselves and get a better life by avoiding the use of these modern gadgets?

You are right to have some concern. People who are surrounded by these gadgets all day long, in the work place for example, will be more susceptible and some people will be more affected than others. This simple answers is not to live in a plce where you are surrounded by electrical devices all the time. However, as some have already mentioned, the risks for most people are minimal and air pollutants from cars and factories etc still provide far more harmful effects.

What all you say is really very true but tell me how can we reduce these things as every electronic gadget you have listed above have become very essential in our day to day life and it cannot be just ignored by people , lets take a mobile phone nobody can give up using a mobile phone and it is the major problem causing thing because we never get away from it at all , 24/7 we are using it and even during night time we are just placing it under pillow or placing it in above the head and we are just snugging .. the problem can be sorted only by banning such items or otherwise some new anti electromagnetic radiations which helps us to over come it should be invented..

yes dear shana this is the real situation and we must therefore learn to handle the things with utmost care!! holding the mobile in the hand throughout the day will be more dangerous! and if the same mobile be held within the protective cover the radiation effect is effectively reduced and better if the same set is held in the purse or the bag after being put in the case!! we can definitely avoid or say minimise the use of acs and microwaves!! we do not go for solar cookers just for being modern and being time conscous . whereas besides saving the side effects the food cooked in a solar cooker will be full of nutrients!! well we , as i just mentioned need to be a little more cautious and alert!!

The only solutions seems to be going back in time and discarding all modern appliances which have the remotest chance of radiation. Give off the TV, the cell phone, the microwave, the gas burner, the fans and lights, the washing machine, transportation…well everything. That’s not possible of course so to me the next best thing would be to make our environs as green as possible. As we all know, green plants emit oxygen and suck in carbon dioxide. Oxygen revitalizes us any time of the day and so planting more trees which make the environment more healthy which will sure have a positive impact on us.

well that s rather right . people who are in the countryside are rather better placed!! and are safe as compared to the people in the city!! well you can not afford to discard the latest gadgets is your personal problem. and dear friend merely planting more trees has not prevented the ozone layer from getting depleted!! any way good luck and happy mylotting dear friend!!

hey juhi. what you are telling is right. even the refrigerators that we use emit a gas called CFC which is the mail cause for producing the hole in the ozone layer. many other devices that we are using in our day to day life also causes a lot of effect in our environment. now a days CFC free refrigerators are being manufactured. so some thing like this must be implemented in all other devices. Thanks for sharing. happy mylotting.

yes dear chinniR. absolutely right. refrigerators and air conditioners both are responsible for the erosion of the ozone layer!! and the dangers from radiations are in creasing by the day!! i hope some protection be made available for the people who are exposed to it more!!

yes dear juhi in the name of modern technology our young children are exposed to irreversible risks and by the time we are aware of the reasons it is already late. in this world how many people really understand and appreciate the value of aura ? this aura actually is a natural energetic protective layer around us!!and if regularly affected by the prolonged and un protected use of these gadgets, then even god can not save us from the damage!! so we should learn to use the gadgets rather judiciously!!

hi kushank55. you are absolutely right. we should take some steps to prevent the aura to be damaged by these radiations. or try to protect it whatever way we can!! secondly the use of the technology should be done judiciously!!

Ohhh yes Juhi you are very right ......mobile itself can cause cancer,impotencey and other diseases....but still its not banned ....I think we are living in bad vibrational zones..... I think this is the reason behind increasing stress in our lives .... Lets Pray to Lord Krishna to save us ...like " Ohhh Lord Krishna please save me from these bad vibrations as I dont have power and knowledge to get saved ..." lol...know Lord Krishna will save us ok..... Take Care Ganesh

Well you are right in what you have brought on surface. But think 50 years ago there was no infrastructure to ease your life you had to fight and bear so many troubles to get rid of minor things. In to days altar modern facilities in the the medical science it prompts you to take care off. These things were not available and the people die knowing nothing what happen. Take example people were suffering from diabetes were not aware of this disease and they die. Now there is awareness and more and more people resorts to the morning walk in the morning and even in the evening. They have walkers in home for those who can not go out. This is little example. ;Earlier people had been dieing the deaths the reasons they do not know. But now there are remedies. Do not worry if radiation is there its cure is also there. Life is much batter then before 50 years ago. There was a average of 48 or 55 to live now it is 70 and 95. Things have improved.

Saving ourself is a bit tough because humanity is moving gradually towards its own destruction. However, living on the spiritual side of life and establishing peace can save us all.

As someone else mentioned, there is a minimal amount of radiation coming from most of these "gadgets". From what I have read, a blue tooth or anything with an ear plug is more likely to cause you damage than anything else will. You can keep yourself safe by making sure you arrange these things the right way. Tip: Speakers shouldn't be sitting close to your monitor and magnets of any kind should not be near most of these gadgets. I've had so many X-rays done on me that I am probably a walking cone of radiation right now! But, I'm not gonna worry about it! It's All Good!

hi dear rhythwalker1 partly right and partly i do not agree with you. when you say that the prevention is better than cure i fully appreciate your view point!! in the name of modernity the entire population is suffering . there are many passive smokers who silently suffer because their close people from the family are smoking the fumes so poisonous that they are unable to recover from the damage they suffer!!

We are already aware that these modern technologies got radiation that really affects at all and the only solution about this is to minimize using it to avoid sickness or trouble but yeah your right the people from the past is more safer than now present but that just the way it is.thats why there are strong medicines made by some scientist to be updated to those new diseases too cause to some of these radiation effect just don't worry and live happy.:-0 God bless and have a nice day.:-0

I remember when I was young, the little chirping sparrows around my house, while my mother fed me rice, showing the sparrows to me. It was very pleasnt, but now, I couldn't see atleast a sparrow anymore. Where are they? House surroundings are the same, then what made them leave? I had a discussion about it with my fellowmates, then I came to a conclusion to state that this is because of the cell phones, the radiations caused by cell phones have killed those small tiny hearts, oh someone have mercy. They have disappeared or either migrated to a new place. Solution is to ban everything, or destroy the earth and die with it.

We don't know for sure if they ARE harmful yet. Microwave radiation such as the ones in your conventional microwave, are SAFE if used CORRECTLY. As long as you don't put anything metal inside it, or a living thing (I mean, of course, duh) inside it, nothing will happen. You won't get cancer from having your food reheated by microwaves. The visible light we see, that allows us to see, is part of electromagnetic radiation. If we didn't have electromagnetic radiation, we'll all be blind! Microwaves, infra-red, gamma rays and microwaves are really all the same electromagnetic radiation, just that they vibrate at different intervals and have different wavelengths. Low energy waves like light, radio waves (your handphones), and infra-red radiation are typically not harmful in general, every-day situations. The only time it is harmful is in extreme cases, such as being exposed to too much light (i.e a laser) which can cause blindness.

dear likaes i do not want to disturb any ones peace of mind. but the fact remains , if you like smoking , you will ignore the warning that it si injurious to health. but one day you will feel its impact. similarly all radiations leave their effect on the human body and mind. and it is realised rather late!! i wish that all of us should be careful enough while using our gadgets!!

Well, from what I understand, the radiation that comes off of any of these appliances and such is so minimal that there is no Big worry. You are safe to be around these... otherwise they would heed warnings on them, and we who own Computers and spend a lot of time on them would be in trouble. Yes, back in the day before Computers, Microwaves, etc. were around there was not a radiation factor, there were a lot of other things that could kill them like Diseases they now have medications and a cure for, so to me, it all makes it useful and worth while in the end.

dear krausehome my intention is not to make you afraid and to throw away the things, but what i intend to say is there is a need to go deeper into the yhings on your own. why our children ned glasses right at the age of 3/4/5 years and why the sufferings are more generally. thee gadgets will not have the immediate effect , but the slow and gradual effect is rather irreversible, and we are so mush used to the gadgets like a/cs , tvs, the mobiles, that we do not wish to see the damage caused by them . i would request all my friends to go deeper and and avoid the use but to use them judiciously and with more care than carelessly to reduce the harmful effect if any!! and dear medications are there but they are costly and pain giving , so remember prevention is better than cure!!
