    Electricity is all around us, all the time. It makes our lives easier, safer, more fun and most of us never think about it. But is there such a thing as too much electricity? Electronic devices emit an electromagnetic field, which is suspected to cause cancer. We read countless sources on this topic to summarize the results of the latest research for you.

      Our brains operate at a specific frequency and recently 5G internet has been developed and deployed, humans are like walking radio towers that are constantly broadcasting and receiving information. The reason why humans get "vibes" in certain places, an example is an abandoned house, is because there are or have been multiple humans or in this case the deceased in that area for a long time and as a result the radiation from broadcasting emotions has built up. This information came from the truth seeking society which people oppress out of rage, fear, or straight up foolishness, called Natsarim's. The Natsarim people aim to correct others through information rather than violence whether its trying to shove information down their throats or letting unfortunate things happen to them.

      The problem with dashlane is it makes the problem they aim to solve worse. If your dashlane account gets hacked into you've definitely stored multiple passwords on there and as a result the hacker will have access to more accounts than if you just had a couple of different passwords. It's a nice idea but not practical since cyber security is never a thing that can be guaranteed

      I understand the need for sponsorship and all but to make the video with a continuous transition into the advertisement without notification that an ad is being presented is disingenuous, and I expect better from you guys.

    I have heard of the trouble you go through to keep these videos comming and wanted to thank you for your continued effort to bring educational videos to CHclip.
    I don't know what CHclip thought when giving educational videos less monetization than other formats, but I hope that they come to their senses.

    P.S.: I hope you will revision the "Addiction" video sometime in the next year, since it is quite an important topic, especially for our western neighbours: The US.

    Being worried about getting eye damage from staring at your phone screen is the same as being worried about dying from heat stroke from soaking in a hot tub. Depending on the intensity (light/heat) and exposure will have obvious short term effects that are easily remedied. It's if those short term effects are ignored that they can develop into long term effects.

    I am electromagnetic sensitive. I know what caused this bit it's difficult to fix it. People who have emf sensitivity have stomach issues. I have a very thin esophagus lining. Non natural bread for the most part contains polyaromatic hydrocarbons which react to emfs. If you ate or eat bread and your intestines don't know how to avoid the absorption of these pahs then you will react to emfs including sunlight. Look this up. Hydrocarbons in bread. Leaky gut, food allergies. Emf sensitivity.

      @Hm Grraarrpffrzz I'm glad that Germany works out for you. The issue I have with paying them is that those paying them here are not receiving the benefits. It's those who don't pay them that receive the benefits. Anyways yeah. Good convo mate.

    • Hm Grraarrpffrzz
      Hm Grraarrpffrzz Před 16 dny

      @Jadiel Montesdeoca You are somewhat misinformed with your political rant. :) In Germany, you also pay a lot of taxes, but as such you get health care for free.
      Last week I had my annual checkup. It included an ECG, a detailed blood and urine analysis, vaccinations against influenca and TBE, and a long talk to the doctor. And all of that was for free. My thyroid gland medicine also costs me about 2$ per month. Not like people in the US, who have to pay like 800$ for a months supply of insuline, only to horribly then die because they try to dilute it to make it last longer. That's why people in the USA have a shorter lifespan than people in most other developed countries. For example, unlike in the USA, I also don't have to look up on the internet how to pull out my own teeth because I can't afford a dentists visit, because that stuff is for free as well.
      Anyway, you started this discussion. People like you prefer to live in countries where everybody who is not rich dies miserably even though a cure for nearly everything is available.
      Anyway, having said that, electric currences caused by teeth fillings makes scientifically sense, can be scientifically explained, and can be measured.
      Pretending to magically feel electrield fields in a way that can not be rationally explained is absurd, especially considering that all people suffering from such mental problems are for a mystical unknown reason not willing to have anybody test them on that.

    • Jadiel Montesdeoca
      Jadiel Montesdeoca Před 16 dny

      @Hm Grraarrpffrzz I am willing if it were free😅. Look up Galvanic shock in teeth. That is a mainstream thing. That's what I have but only worse. I live in Commiefornia where 1/4 of my taxes are taken so I can't afford to go to a doctor like in Germany.

    • Hm Grraarrpffrzz
      Hm Grraarrpffrzz Před 16 dny

      @Jadiel Montesdeoca Again: no single person on the entire planet that believes to be emf sensitive is willing or capable to demonstrate that sensitivity in a controlled experiment.
      Why is that?

    • Jadiel Montesdeoca
      Jadiel Montesdeoca Před 16 dny

      @Hm Grraarrpffrzz They don't even need to be turned on. If they are connected to the grid because metal conducts emfs from other sources like the grid itself. I'm not sensitive to wifi or cellphones so if they test me for that they'll find nothing. I am sensitive to high electricity, the sun, and magnets. I had a metal bed and under I would run a cable connecting an alarm clock. Even if the cable wasn't directly near me I felt it because my bed was metal. My bed doesn't run electricity.
