Cell phones seem to be the world’s most enticing drug – it’s addictive. I can’t tell you how many people have cell phones stuck in their ears (why not get a cell phone chip implanted in your ear next time, it’ll be easier) and what’s happening to the rest of us who do not want the constant bombardment of EMFs on us. It’s just like second hand smoke although second hand EMFs (electromagnetic frequencies) are worse than cigarettes!
I am lucky enough to have found several products to repel these harmful EMFs. After using a cell sensor to see the levels of EMFs in my home as most Feng Shui practitioners would do, I started to take note of just how high the levels go when a cell phone is being used in my home, in my yard or with people walking their dogs passing by my home. It’s really disturbing. You can go to Qlinkproducts.com and see if anything that they have for sale could work for your family and you. No, I don’t own stock in QLinkproducts.com; however, I use their products along with BioPro for household EMF removal and really feel a difference in my health and stamina. I bought the alarm clock which disperses the EMFs in a 50′ radius around your home. I have it in my office near my computer because believe it or not, computers also give off EMFs. I also wear a necklace that does the same thing because I want to be protected at all times. I have a friend who is a nurse who has started selling Bio Pro products because she wanted to get to the problem at the source. My favorite is a Bio Pro product that is inserted into any plug outlet in your home and that takes the EMFs out of all the wiring in your entire home.
Being an advocate against cell phones is not a popular thing; however, my adage is, “Why pay for cancer when you can get it for free?” I used to use this saying with cigarettes years ago and now I am repeating myself with cell phones. There are so many things we could die from, so why are we just pushing ourselves into the grave before our time?
How many children need cell phones? Are they so important that they need to be on the phone 24/7? I know some parents who give cell phones or upgrade services when their children do well in school. Wow, what a gift! Whatever happened to taking them out to dinner, a movie, a museum, the theater or buying them a new outfit? Try to give them something useful like money, not something that may adversely affect their health.
Are parents or adults so important that they must check their cells phones many times during a movie (this is annoying and distracting to the other patrons, but we know you are oblivious to us) or immediately after a movie? I think peoples’ egos are blown way out of proportion these days. Can’t you return a call once you get home and have time to talk without doing a bunch of other things, like, oh, I don’t know, say food shopping, being in a restaurant annoying other patrons, in a doctor’s office annoying the staff and other patients, while driving (which is illegal in many states) and most of all while walking your dog around the block or playing catch with your son. I have seen parents talking on their cell phones while they were “attempting” to interact with their child. I have seen a dad playing catch with his young son. He was engrossed in a cell phone conversation and barely knew his son was there. He looked like a preprogrammed robot throwing a ball from time to time without saying a word to his son, but he had much to say to the person on the other end of the cell phone. I could see how sad the little boy was that his father was not paying any attention to him. How lame does a parent have to be to make your child feel unloved and so unimportant and elevate the importance of the caller on the other end of the cell phone? You are also giving the message that communication and interaction with humans is unimportant unless it’s through modern technology. How unimportant do you want your child to feel? Think before you answer your cell phone if you are supposed to be bonding with your child or family.
What ever happened to talking to your family and friends in person? How about trying to talk to them at the dinner table or while you are enjoying dinner at a restaurant? The most annoying thing is hearing someone else’s conversation (which we don’t care about) and not being able to do anything about it. I personally ask the person to tone it down as I don’t care about their life and sometimes that works – sometimes, it doesn’t. Then I ask the manager of the restaurant to tell the person to stop using their cell phones. That usually works. Many of the restaurants I now frequent have terrific signs that say, NO CELL PHONES IN THE RESTAURANT. Hooray for the restaurant management that does this. I will continue to patronize your establishments.
There is even a sign at my local post office which says that cell phones cannot be used in the lobby. It was annoying that people were on the cell phone and trying to buy stamps or mail packages, but had to answer the person on the other end of the cell phone and did not have the common courtesy to answer the postal workers questions because they were busy. Now it is unacceptable in the post office and more power to them for standing up for the common folk who can’t stand this modern day marvel.
Don’t get me wrong, I use a cell phone as an emergency device. It’s in my car and in the last ten years, I may have used sixty minutes of my basic payment plan. I don’t even know the number and no one has the number because I never check it! Cell phones for emergency purposes keep one feeling safe and secure, but how much do you need to use one?
I feel that anyone using a cell phone while driving should be fined at least one thousand dollars and be thrown in jail for a few days! I have nearly been the victim of a car accident from others using cell phones who swirved into my lane or were going so slow that they were holding up traffic. The police should enforce these laws so that the public will understand that risking lives for a phone call will not be tolerated. It’s dangerous and hazardous to our health! That would also stop them from potentially killing someone in a car wreck because they were distracted by cell phone use.
Cell phones should be a convenience, not an addictive drug. With boundaries and limitations, I think everyone could flourish in this cell phone mania, but I do feel that if we could survive twenty years ago without phones attached to our hips, ears, pockets or purses, we could do it again. Besides, we may not all be as important as we think we are – and having a cell phone does not make you more popular, pretty, handsome or intelligent – it just makes you look like someone who cannot interact with human beings and who show the world they are so very busy, they can’t be out of touch with the world for any length of time and that is rarely the case.
Give all of us a break – get a life and keep your laundry, food or errand list to yourself. We don’t need to hear you call home to see which percent milk or what type of bread you need to buy. We don’t need to hear you call a friend or home about a dollar item in the dollar store. And frankly, I don’t care. Normal people write lists of things they need and why don’t you know which type of milk or bread you use? Why don’t you know these things on your own – are you unaware or just oblivious because you need to be in contact with anyone on the cell phone at all times. Can’t you function without this addiction?
This is not rocket scientist people. You don’t want to have cancer – you don’t want your family to be around that energy, so use the cell phone wisely and stop annoying so many others. Be courteous and learn cell phone etiquette. If you are going to use the phone, at least know how to use it properly.
I know it’s not a popular view, but I have never been a follower like all of the cell phone users. I am a people person, one who likes to keep in touch with friends and use the phone only to set up a meeting for a movie, dinner or get together or leave a minute message saying hi and let’s get together soon. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all have time to spend with our family and friends again and not just make that memory a thing of the past?
Just something to think about.
