The effects of Digital Damage on our Wellbeing
The Effects Of Electronic Devices On Your Wellbeing
In the last several years, many studies involving the regular use of communication devices such as cell phones have been conducted to verify their impact on health. While some definitive results have been achieved, it is difficult to know the effect those results actually have on the wellbeing of individuals.
Numerous studies have been conducted showing that the low levels of electromagnetic radiation from cell phones and other broadcasting devices have a direct impact on the molecules of the body.
The Radio Waves and Microwaves Emitted by these Devices
The radio waves and microwaves emitted by these devices cause increased oxidation in certain enzymes, marking an increase in overall oxidation levels in the body. It is still unclear however just how much this increased oxidation actually harms the body, if at all.
Oxidation is a regular part of life, but increased levels of oxidation over time can damage cells and possibly even lead to cancer. Therefore, there is at least some reason to be wary of the potential damages.
There have been a few studies that have shown strong evidence that those foods and substances high in antioxidants can prevent a large portion of radiation-induced oxidation. Substances such as gingko biloba and bee propolis are good examples (Ilhan et al. 2004) (Ozguner et al.2005).
