    Can we have a list of documentaries or you tube videos to watch please.
    I have seen 'The Last Great Medical Cover Up' and 'Voices from the Shadows' but would like to watch some more.
    Thank you!

    Although I suspect the intent of @digital dog 's request was for documentaries and videos about ME, I discovered my recommendation while researching the advice that ME patients reduce their exposure to EMF's -- in my situation triggered as a result of our local utility's intent to install two digital "smart" meters in/on our home.

    The documentary is "Take Back Your Power" (www.takebackyourpower.net). It was produced by a Canadian, Josh del Sol, who started investigating the health and environmental harms associated with "smart" meters and other wireless technology when a close friend developed unexplained health problems after installation of a meter on her home. The film also presents evidence of in-home privacy invasions, increased utility bills, fires, and hacking vulnerability. It may be of particular interest to PR members, a group of patients who are already well-familiar with the infuriating influence of those in positions of authority and control who think they know what's best for us. I found it chilling, and fascinating.

    As a footnote, for medical reasons I was able to decline installation of the digital water and electricity meters. In fact, the utility employees I dealt with were very pleasant and accommodating -- not at all like those presented in the documentary.

    1 litre of tears gave me a lot of clarity as how to live with an illness and how to integrate it with my identity. The movie is what you want to watch. The TV series is basically a fictionalized version. The girl, Aya Kitto, also had her diary published which I highly recommend as well

    I mentioned it on another thread recently but worth plugging again: if you're interested in the cartel that is the science publishing industry, The Internet's Own Boy is fantastic - http://www.takepart.com/internets-own-boy

    It's very sad in some ways, especially when you think about what the film's subject, Aaron Swartz, would have achieved (not that he didn't change the world a bit in his short life), but inspiring, too.

    Yes, the evidence against wireless technologies from a health perspective is quite staggering. Similar to our situation with ME, there is an attempt by governments and corporations to cover up the research being done by many very credible scientists.

    The advice directed towards ME patients to avoid EMF's came from my city's ME specialist -- a patient herself. The documentary doesn't mention ME. However, if your interest in evidence is more general with respect to health effects, I can certainly provide some links. A bit more detail on your specific interest would help me to know what to post in my next response. Thanks.

    Thanks. I was just curious in general, not specifically for any reason. Wireless devices are everywhere these days so just wondering if we are all going to pay the consequences. I am sceptical in general, not necessarily on this topic because I don't know enough about it, but that's why I like to see evidence.

    @BurnA Unfortunately, you may be correct, based on the opinions of the collection of scientists involved in drafting the Bioinitiative Report on low-intensity electromagnetic radiation. Like you, I am not qualified to say one way or the other. But, we are sufficiently concerned to have taken reasonable steps to reduce exposure in our home. If you are at all curious, a good place to start is: www.bioinitiative.org.
