Wireless Wake-Up Call: Jeromy Johnson at TEDxBerkeley (Full Transcript)

So one of the primary things we can do is to move towards fiber optics, because this is a way that we can make our homes safer, our businesses and our schools. So fiber optics are safe, they’re secure, and they’re one of the fastest things we can use.

Another way we can go is to design products which are safer. So currently we have product designers and engineers working together, but we could bring in biophysicists and biologists to work together to create products that don’t just emit right underneath the FCC regulations, but emit the least amount of any type of electromagnetic fields as possible.

If smart meters had been designed to use either fiber optics or to emit just once or twice a day rather than the 10,000 times they do emit, then I wouldn’t be standing here today, and thousands upon thousands of people around the world would not have been injured by smart meters.

So what are some things that all of us can do?

This is one of the most important things because everyone wants to know how to essentially protect themselves and their families.

So, the first thing is to make sure we use our cell phones wisely. I mentioned that you don’t want to put the cell phone within about an inch of the body. The industry is telling us this now. So make sure you use speakerphone, get an air-tube headset; and when it’s on the body, make sure that you put it on airplane mode when it’s either in the pocket or sometimes in the bra.

And when it comes to kids, we don’t want to have kids use cell phones. But if they must, then please, teach them how use these wisely. We can wire our homes. Most people don’t need Wi-Fi in their home. So move towards Ethernet, move towards fiber optics

And if you must have Wi-Fi, make sure you turn it off at night. You can get a simple timer so you don’t even have to think about it.

When it comes to kids, we want to reduce their exposures as much as possible. So if they use an iPad, put all of the data on the iPad, and then turn the Wi-Fi off. In schools, I simply do not think we need to have Wi-Fi in schools because we’re filling those classroom with microwave radiation.

We can have amazing technology, but it can be wired. And this is where I think we’re going to have to go.

When it comes to the smart meter and the smart home, I recommend you to opt out. I’ve had wealthy early-adopting families contact me who went all in on the smart home, and they ended up getting sick within a few months. So this is something that affects families, and I just recommend that you don’t go down this path because it’s a technology we do not need.

And one of the last solutions I want to get today is to create a safe place to sleep. Because this is one of the most important things. Because this is when your body rejuvenates, and it’s when you can make sure that everything’s off.

So turn off all your wireless devices, unplug things. If you have a baby monitor, I actually recommend that you turn that off, especially at night. I just do not recommend those for kids.

And if you do these things, I know many people who’ve ended up sleeping better; they are much clearer during the day, and their fatigue is much less. So this is something which I recommend everyone can do.

So in conclusion, I want to say that this is a problem that we can solve. There are tremendous people around the world working on this right now.

And I believe we’re coming to a tipping point where enough people realize that this is an important topic, and that there are solutions.

So I recommend that you share this with the people who are closest to you. Because if enough people wake up to this issue, then industry will start creating safe technology. And once they do that, our entire society can move towards a healthier future.

Thank you.
