Spirituality-Focused Services via Alexa and Phone Apps Don’t Protect Us From Exposure to Harmful WiFi Radiation
By B.N. Frank
Tech companies are happy to help them with this. However, they aren’t divulging that some tech manufacturers have already been warning shareholders (not customers) that they may eventually be held liable for the harm their products have caused.
There is still no “safe” level of cell phone or WiFi radiation exposure that has been scientifically determined for children or pregnant women. Children are also more vulnerable to exposure than adults.
WiFi isn’t magic. It is wireless aka microwave radiation – like what cooks food in microwave ovens.
Regardless, WiFi emitting Alexa and other apps are still being marketed for just about everything now including spiritual enlightenment despite the many warnings about exposure over the years. Some of them include:
- 2010 GQ Magazine
- 2010 NBCNews.com
- 2011 CNN
- 2011 PBS
- 2012 “Cell Phone Right to Know” Act
- 2012 American Academy of Pediatrics
- 2014 Berkeley Cell Phone “Right to Know” Ordinance
- 2015 NBC “The Today Show”
- 2017 National Institutes of Health
- 2018 CBSNews.com

One February 2018 article details how spiritually-focused apps have become big business:
Nearly 1,000 meditation apps are now available, with big players like Headspace ushering in 16 million downloads as of last year and raising nearly $100 million in investments. Others like Calm, Insight Timer, and Aura are also supporting millions of people through every phase of their meditation journeys. This rise of meditation apps, and app culture in general (as of last month, 2.2 million mobile apps were available for iOS download), has made way from more niche spiritual offerings to appear on our screens too. Golden Thread Tarot lets users “mirror the digital experience with the physical” by programming their tarot decks into a mobile version that they can call on at any moment. iLuna lets downloaders track the moon through its phases and gives advice on how to live in greater communion with this natural cycle. Most recently came Co-Star, a sleek astrology app that allows users to access their natal charts and compare them with their friends’. When it first launched late last year, it repeatedly crashed due to demand—over 1,000 downloads an hour at times. The app, which uses NASA data to generate personalized daily horoscopes, continues to appeal to millennials craving a new wave of astrology: one that is easily accessible, stylish, and shareable.
While fundraisers have been earnestly raising money to find cures for cancer and other health issues, The Telecom Industry (aka “Big Wireless”) continues to design, manufacture, and market even more harmful products and infrastructure. This is all heartbreaking to say the least.
Many elected officials and government employees have been misleading us as well.
Wireless technology was originally created to be used by the military for communication, surveillance, and weapons.
Obviously it can obviously still be very helpful to all of us when used in emergency situations. Unfortunately we have been encouraged to normalize using multiple sources of it 24/7 and in ways that don’t even meet current (outdated) safety standards.
Let your conscience be your guide.
