  Can you really feel years younger and make unexplained symptoms vanish with the click of a button — the “Airplane Mode” on your cell phone? Investigative health journalist Nicolas Pineault used to think this all sounded like something only crazy people wearing tinfoil hats would say. But the overwhelming amount of independent scientific evidence linking electromagnetic fields (EMFs) from wireless technologies with increased risks of cancer, infertility, insomnia, and depression sure has the uncanny ability to change a man’s mind. His new book "" is a simple and unconventional book that will teach you exactly how to reduce your exposure to this brand new 21st-century pollution without going back to the Stone Age. In it, he covers... -What your smartphone, your wifi router and your microwave oven have in common (page 9) -Why policy makers and scientists all worldwide don’t agree about whether EMFs are dangerous or not (page 21) -Is Electro-Hypersensitivity as popularized in the TV show “Better Call Saul” real? Or is it all psychological? (page 62) -Why carrying a cell phone in your pocket can harm your fertility (201 studies prove it) (page 72) -The 1-click fix to reduce cellphone EMFs by 84% (page 142) -What is safer? Speakerphone, earbuds or a Bluetooth ear piece? (page 155) -The #1 worst source of EMF radiation at home (page 160) -Why baby monitors are worse than smartphones, and better alternatives (page 208) It’s true. The jury is still out about whether cellphone radiation is the new smoking or just a temporary scare. But why take chances? Nicolas Pineault is a health journalist who has published more than 1,500 online articles through a daily newsletter called Nick & Gen’s Healthy Life. In 2017, he authored this unconventional book endorsed by top health authorities such as Dr. Mercola, a book that combines common sense and humor to tackle the very serious topic of electromagnetic pollution and its effects on human health.   During our discussion, you'll discover: -The NO/ONOO (nitric oxide/peroxynitrite) cycle and how research by Dr. Martin Pall shows us why chemicals, heavy metals, mold toxins, sugar and junk food, and a bunch of other inflammatory factors each contribute to increasing our sensitivity to EMFs, (and vice-versa)...[10:00]   -How stimulating a pathway called the "NRF2" pathway can help calm down this cycle and make you less EMF sensitive...[23:00]   -EMF shielded clothes, and why Nicolas is now convinced that they actually work...[25:50] -How you can reduce your phone's radiation by 80% by using just 3G instead of 4G/LTE...[33:45]   -How a handful of meta analyses shatter the skeptics beliefs that EMF's do nothing to human, animal and plant biology...[38:55]   -Why you shouldn't hold a cell phone in your hand (and what to use instead)...[44:00]   -Why you need to be very careful with grounding mats and earthing mats, and a supplement to take at night before you ground or earth...[49:45]   -The mineral magnetite that is found in the body of birds, humans and other animals, and how it reacts with EMF...[57:55]   -The importance of metal free inks and natural pigments in tattoos...[62:25]   -Whether or not bluetooth is an issue compared to Wifi and cell phones...[66:40]   -And much more!   Resources from this episode:     -   -   -   -   -   -   -   -   -   - on how EMFs affect voltage-gated calcium channels - on the NO/ONOO- cycle and how EMFs and chemicals act in synergy   -  which shows how calcium channels are activated after less than 5 seconds of EMF exposure   - where she mentions that up to 33% of the population suffers from mild to moderate symptoms of electro sensitivity   - - -- sauna therapy might act by raising BH4 levels   - -   -   - - , the EMF course for health practitioners I've put together with Dr. Klinghardt, Lynch, Mercola, etc. Live beta launching from Feb 26 to Mar 11. -, Dr. Klinghardt's practice   - -   -   -   -   -   -   - -   -   -   -   Show Sponsors: -Kion Aminos - For for muscle recovery, better cognition, reduced cravings, immunity, try Kion Aminos from GetKion.com. -Four Sigmatic - Go to for 15% off. -Organifi - Go to and use discount code GREENFIELD for 20% off your purchase.
