What about cartoon characters smoking cigarettes?
This was all normal.
When the first evidence came in that smoking caused lung cancer… everyone was in denial.
The tobacco industry (who made lots of money off of people smoking) spent lots of money to cover up the evidence, and hired their own scientists to produce what’s now referred to as ‘Tobacco science”.
This deception worked for 50 years!
This is called the “Tobacco Playbook”.
Fast-forward to 1990’s where the evidence of harm got so overwhelming that the Tobacco companies finally got slammed.
Who were the real victims though?
The millions of people who were led to believe that something was safe (tobacco), when in reality, it really wasn’t…
People were dying — all because an industry was afraid to lose money.
The doctors in this scenario, who could have helped — they were misinformed too. Most of them even scoffed at the silly idea that tobacco could cause cancer.
Now, I know you’re saying: “Great Nick! What does this have to do with EMFs?”
Let’s look at the facts, shall we?
When it comes to EMFs, it’s not either you smoke or you don’t smoke. EVERYONE is 2nd hand smoking.
This includes 4 year olds. A 2014 survey by the American Academy of Pediatrics has showed that 75% of 4-year olds possess their own cell phone!
The Telecommunications Industry is following the “Tobacco Playbook” to the letter, and it’s working like gangbusters.
This all can sound grim, but trust me that there’s light at the end of the tunnel…
We don’t have to all be 2nd hand smokers. We can demand safer technologies. We can win this battle.
