Considering the ingredients of the few sample discussions presented here, it appears that both human and animals have brains sensitive to radiofrequency energy. (...) Just how electromagnetic radiation affects our social structure has led to a great deal of speculation in the past. For example, Dr. Goldman once insisted that radiofrequencies energies allows the id, or the primitive brain, to take control over human affairs. Such considerations might open a Pandora's box when applied to an explanation of our sharply increased crime rate an decline of social fidelity.
So, before we rush into electromagnetically contaminating our environment, it would serve us well once and for all to discover what adverse effects it will have on our lives.

that

The
term
"sy

is
derived
fromthe
Greek
phrase
