GENERATION ZAPPED, a film by Sabine El Gemayel, investigates the potential dangers of prolonged exposure to Radio Frequencies (RF) from wireless technology; it’s effects on our health and well-being, as well as the health and development of our children. From its links to breast and brain cancer, to its associations with increased infertility and genetic mutations related to autism and ADHD, to newly developed illnesses, such as Electrical Hyper-Sensitivity (EHS).
Today we encounter a hundred thousand times the level of radiation from wireless technologies than we did decades ago. Yet the safety standards set by federal regulatory agencies are outdated. New wireless devices such as smart phones, tablets and baby monitors to the latest “Internet of Things” continue to enter the market without any proper pre-market testing or post-market monitoring. Too little is done to ensure public safety and awareness.
So how can we uncover the facts and reduce our exposure to limit the associated health risks during this technological revolution? GENERATION ZAPPED attempts to do just that.
Q&A discussion following film with:
Sabrina Siegal, Families for Safe Technology,
William Collinge, PhD, Friends of Amazon Creek,
and Pamela Wible, M.D.
Dr. Pamela Wible is a family physician born into a family of physicians who warned her not to pursue medicine. She soon discovered why—to heal her patients she first had to heal her profession. Fed up with assembly-line medicine, Dr. Wible held town hall meetings where she invited citizens to design their own ideal clinic. Open since 2005, Wible’s community clinic has inspired Americans to create ideal clinics and hospitals nationwide.
Her innovative model is now taught in medical schools and featured in Harvard School of Public Health’s newest edition of Renegotiating Health Care, a textbook examining major trends with the potential to change the dynamics of health care. Dr. Wible speaks widely on health care delivery and is the bestselling author of Pet Goats & Pap Smears and Physician Suicide Letters—Answered.
Dr. Wible’s blogs have been picked up by major media such as The Washington Post and Time Magazine. She’s delivered 2 TED talks, an award-winning NPR interview, and her work on doctor suicide was the focus of a primetime segment on America Tonight. Dr. Wible most recently reported on New York City’s physician suicide cluster on Dr. Oz and is a subject in the new award-winning documentary, Do No Harm: Exposing The Hippocratic Hoax.
