Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions

Travel And The Danger Of Radio Frequency Radiation

Season 18, Episode 9 of 9

As Burt and his family travel around the world they are constantly confronted with the newest advances in wireless communication. Cellphones, pads, computers, earphones, and sleep monitors were well-known to him. But in Hong Kong he saw a Jump Rope connect to a mobile app. A doctor in New York suggested a wireless blood pressure monitor. In Chicago he saw a wireless device to improve your posture and a friend's house in Florida has a wireless smart water controller. At the same time, he began to see more and more research about the dangers of the radio frequency radiation that is associated with these devices. Of special interest were the antennas, cell towers and street polls that empower the system. This program explains what he saw and how to protect yourself.
