Random Thoughts - Are radio waves driving us insane?

Does he know something we don't?
Are humans fucking loons? or are 
radio waves driving us insane?

By Gary;

It is a chicken and the egg thing.

Are people naturally stupid and/or mass murderers or has modern technology impacted our brains driving us nuts?

In the "olden days" you never saw the news stories that now happen almost everyday.  Today there is an endless stream of stories on naked people attacking strangers, sex with German shepherds, or a father killing his entire family.

There are two schools of thought here:  1)  as the family crumbles, rudderless members of society turn to drugs and booze causing insane behavior; or 2)  these stories have grown in number with the massive expansion of radio wave style communications that might be effecting our brain.

Science 101  -   Simply, for every action there is a reaction.

The brain is a mass of electric impulses. Logic says if modern society is sending massive amounts of electromagnetic waves through the air it must have some level of impact on the brain.

Is everyone impacted? No.  But if just 2% of the population is negatively impacted we are taking about millions of people.

Scientific American  -  Nonionizing radiation from power lines, personal wireless devices, cell phone towers and other sources is practically unavoidable. Extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields (EMF) surround home appliances as well as high-voltage electrical transmission lines and transformers.

Evidence of health effects from EMF, including their influence on the brain, is inconclusive, and the probability that EMF exposure is a genuine health hazard is currently small. Nevertheless, exposure to high levels of nonionizing energy, such as at radio wave frequencies, can damage the structure and function of the nervous system. 
For example, microwave frequencies below 3,000 megahertz can penetrate the outer layers of the skin, be absorbed in the underlying tissues, and result in all of the known biological effects of heating, including burns, cataracts, and possibly death. Indeed, government regulators set most exposure limits to ensure that the amount of tissue heated by the absorption of energy is not in excess of what the body can take.
It is possible that heating is not the only effect of radiation. Some scientists claim that human tissue, including the brain, may be affected nonthermally.
Studies describe potential associations. For example, a recent report suggests that the low-intensity electromagnetic field of geomagnetic storms--disturbances in the earth¿s magnetic field caused by gusts of solar wind--may have a subtle but measurable influence on suicide incidence in women.
