Your post got me to thinking!
Our daughter-in-law has had 4 or 5 orthopedic surgeries,
has migraines, can be very anxious & has all kinds of aches & pains.
They broke her one leg & reset it. They said it was crooked.
She had the whole, big, outside rod adjustment thingy!
Had cadaver tissue put in one knee.
And she had both her lower arms operated on for some problem with the nerves!
She walks, swims, canoes, gardens, but feels lousy a lot of the time!
They can't really find out what's wrong! She's too young for all that!
Chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia? They can't say for sure!
When you think about it, cell phones even work in basements!
Do they in elevators? Don't know, I never tried it!
But the signals have to be pretty powerful to go through concrete!
It sure can't be healthy!
They wanted to put a cell phone tower on my daughter & son-in-laws property.
They said, no way. Though the money was tempting, it wasn't worth the health risks!
When our oldest son was 2 he started with allergies.
About that time, there was a program on TV about an island off the coast of northern Australia.
It was completely free of anything modern, for people who had weird allergies to modern life!
I thought it would be a wonderful, healthy place! No plastics, polyester, chemicals, etc!
Just back to basics. I can't remember if they even had electricity.
That was almost 30 years ago. I have often wondered if it's still the same!
I think there is something to it. There are so many autoimmune diseases now.
Even a huge increase in asthma & allergies.
Not to mention how many people say they 'just don't feel right'!
And the memory problems & brain fog! In all age groups! Not just older people.
There definitely is something going on! If only someone could figure out what!
But I don't think it's any one thing, rather a series of complex interactions,
that we have no clue about yet! Unfortunately!
People who are more in tune & aware of what they are feeling & when,
are like the canaries in the mines! We pay attention so we see/make the connection.
Most people are too busy & harried to watch for patterns,
much less believe it could be the food, the modern conveniences, or the chemicals!
Besides that, how many people would be willing to give up all their 'stuff'?!
Even if they knew they would feel so much better?
How many times have I heard, "If it's so bad for you, they wouldn't make/sell it!"
Look how many people can't even give up their cigarettes & junk food!
Much less be willing to do without some of their modern technology!
We won't even go wireless, because we worry it might have more health risks!
I'm afraid it will take a SHTF scenario to change things the way they need to be changed!
Either that, or a solution that has the potential to make mega bucks for some corporation!!
