S04E17 – The Hidden Dangers of Technology (and How You Can Defend Yourself) w/Daniel DeBaun

Hey there, dear listeners! Today I have a slight deviation from my usual podcasts where I interview a pharmacist or other healthcare professional. Today I’m bringing you another side of the story, discussing medical research about an invisible and silent environmental pollutant that plagues health, unbeknownst to many of us.  We touch on everything from cell phones to Wi-fi to microwaves in this episode! Today we dive deep into industrial electromagnetic toxicity with author and industry leader of EMF radiation, Daniel DeBaun.

Daniel is an internationally recognized expert in EMF radiation, EMF shielding, and EMF-related health issues with special focus on the effect of exposure from mobile devices such as laptops, tablets, and cell phones. Daniel’s concern regarding the health impact of EMF emissions grew from over thirty years of engineering experience in the telecommunications industry, where he held a variety of executive positions at SAIC, Telcordia, AT&T, and Bell Labs. He is the co-author of Radiation Nation: The Fallout of Modern Technology.

Radiation Nation Book:


The constant and ever-increasing exposure to Electromagnetic Frequency (EMF) radiation emitted by cell phones, tablets, laptops, WiFi and Bluetooth is one of the most critical health issues facing our society today. 


Researchers have found associations between EMF exposure and neurological degeneration, DNA damage & tumors, and problems with the nervous, immune, and reproductive systems. Health outcomes linked to EMF exposure range from insomnia & ADHD (plus other memory & focus problems), to mental illness, chronic disease states, autism, cancer, & Alzheimer’s.

Studies also indicate that EMF radiation is especially harmful to our developing children, many of whom begin using wireless communication devices before they learn to talk, and are exposed to this radiation while still in the womb.

With 5G the newest and fastest cellular network being deployed around the world, DeBaun and many other scientists and researchers are weary of the negative biological impacts this higher-frequency wave might have on humans, animals, crops, and entire ecosystems.

Even though EMFs emitted from mobile devices and cell towers can cause biological changes in our bodies, DeBaun says that doesn’t necessarily mean that we must give up our gadgets. Fortunately, there are simple and effective steps we can take to minimize the risks posed by EMF emissions, and we explain those steps on our website and in our book.
