Présentation de l'éditeur
"As [Disconnect] shows, cell phones may actually be doing damage to far more than our attention spans-and could, in fact, be killing us." -Salon.com.
Since the invention of radar, cell phone radiation was assumed to be harmless because it wasn't like X-rays. But a sea change is now occurring in the way scientists think about it. The latest research ties this kind of radiation to lowered sperm counts, an increased risk of Alzheimer's, and even cancer. In Disconnect, National Book Award finalist Devra Davis tells the story of the dangers that the cell phone industry is knowingly exposing us-and our children-to in the pursuit of profit. More than five billion cell phones are currently in use, and that number increases every day. Synthesizing the findings and cautionary advice of leading experts in bioelectricalmagnetics and neuroscience, Davis explains simple safety measures that no one can afford to ignore.

For 42 years I lived a very busy life always focused on the next goal and how to achieve it. Together with my husband we have made many beautiful things, most notably our two daughters. Prior to being diagnosed with my brain tumor my life seemed to be spinning out of control. My body had trouble keeping up with my racing mind. I was diagnosed with bells palsy while pregnant with my second child. I never felt the same. For several years I went to doctors and because I looked "healthy" they told me that it was just depression. Being a real estate broker and experiencing the most difficult times of my 25 year career it certainly was believable. However in my heart I knew that something was wrong. The week before I was diagnosed I went to a specialist. He ran numerous tests and we made an appointment for the following week. That Sunday at church I prayed and gave my life to Jesus Christ. I continued to race through each day struggling to understand my challenges. On Thursday morning I went to spin class at 6am and didn't feel quite well, I left early and went home to quickly get my 5 year old daughter ready for school. We jumped in the shower and that is the last thing that I remember. I'm told that I fell to the ground with several Grand Mal seizures. My husband was home and called 911. That was March 31, 2011, the day before our health insurance expired. There are no coincidences in life, God is in control. I have learned that the control that I thought that I had those 42 years of my life were an illusion. Please don't feel sorry for me as I believe that my tumor was a blessing in disguise. Our heavenly father found a way to get my attention. The purpose for sharing my story is to share the lessons that I have been taught. In todays world the focus seems to be on the prize when truly the greatest wealth that we have is our health. Listen to your body, if something doesn't feel right be persistent. My tumor is an Oligodendroglioma and was located in the right frontal lobe of my brain. On April 13, 2011 a very talented surgeon removed the majority of it. I have elected not to have the standard treatments recommended, which are chemotherapy and radiation. I believe that with lifestyle changes God made my body strong enough to heal itself. Brain tumors are chronic, this means that there is no cure they eventually grow back. When I ask what caused my tumor I am told dumb luck. This doesn't sit well with me. Being a real estate agent since I was 18 years old I have used a cell phone excessively. The World Health Organization has confirmed that there is a link between gliomas, Meningiomas and brain tumors. Other countries discourage their youth from cell phone use. I have seen over 12 doctors since my diagnosis and not once has anyone ever asked me about my cell phone use. If you don't ask the questions you will never draw the conclusions. Every three months I get a new MRI to see if my theory is correct. My deficits from my surgery are challenging but I am choosing not to focus on what I can't do any longer and accept my new normal. I don't know what tomorrow will bring but honestly none of us do. It could be a car accident that eventually kills me not brain cancer. So my message that I want you to take away is to start every day making a list of what you are grateful for rather than what you feel is missing in your life. Teach your children a love of life not technology. If you don't know God be certain that he knows you. In the brain tumor world it is important that we all recognize that there are 120 different types of tumors and all of our cases are different. No two people are alike so what works for me may not work for you. However a strong relationship with God will guide you in your path. Help me spread the word about Brain Tumor Awareness so others don't have to experience what I have. [...]
While I will never stop using my cell phone, the information offered in this startling piece has given me the understanding and confidence to do so wisely.
