Please do this one thing!

Last night, I recorded a podcast with a superhero you should know: Dr Devra Davis. She has an impressive career as an epidemiologist, author, academic, and pioneer in public and environmental health. For example, President Bill Clinton appointed her to the newly established Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (1949-99); she has counseled leading officials in the US United Nations, European Environment Agency, Pan American Health Organization, World Health Organization, and World...

by Sophia Ruan Gushée

 

I suspect that EMF sensitivity (also referred to as electromagnetic hypersensitivity and electromagnetic sensitivity) may become as common an allergy as are nut allergies. And with so many people addicted to your phone (I'm guilty of that too), it makes sense that EMF sensitivity will increase.

Homemade lemonade is a healthy family- and after-school activity

by Sophia Ruan Gushée

 

My 9-year-old loves making lemonade. There have been several occasions during which I have watched her work really hard to squeeze a dozen lemons manually for her small glass of lemonade. Impressed and touched by her determination and work ethic, I decided to blow her mind (and give her hands and fingers a break) with a Breville citrus juicer. It has brought many benefits into our family.

by the editorial team and Sophia Ruan Gushée

 

As someone who has become sensitive to electromagnetic fields (EMFs), I have often wondered about the safety of microwave ovens. Are they safe: not only in terms of the radiation they emit, but also in terms of what they may do to the food that they cook?
