Is our technology driving empathy out the door?

“Humanity Faces An Entire Generation Without The Capacity For Empathy”.

“Humanity Faces An Entire Generation Without The Capacity For Empathy”As I read this headline in an article by Devra Davis, my blood ran just a little cold. This isn’t the first time I’ve read that EMF radiation can cause behavior that is less than friendly. Natural News published an article in 2010 that said: “Electromagnetic pulses can be used to disrupt morality in the human brain.” Davis’ article took this research much further and even mentioned possible potentially irreversible digital dementia.

Does the idea that children are developing dementia concern you? Are you shocked that this dementia may be irreversible?


Truthfully I’d love to be able to just write it off as being from some nut job – but Devra Davis is a well-respected researcher and writer in the field of electromagnetic radiation and publisher of the book “Disconnect”. Add that to the fact that we’ve been researching and studying the effects of electromagnetic radiation since 1990 and have seen first-hand some of the damage done.

Can you or your child’s brain get addicted to technology?

    • Davis says “Children are beginning to show signs of dementia, where they cannot remember basic things, a global phenomenon now being called “Digital Dementia”, believed to potentially be irreversible. There are hundreds of digital detox camps in China and S. Korea; the first U.S. camp opened in Northern California this year.”
  • Davis explains what happens to the brain:There is imbalanced development of the right and left hemispheres of the brain, resulting in children having impaired ability to remember basic things, to use handwriting, or to feel empathy. There is a physiological as well as psychological addiction that is taking place.
    • Cellular devices can lead to a heightened sense of anxiety in children, to isolation, and feelings of psychological and physical dependency.
    • There is also diminished reaction time, decreased motor function, increased distraction, hyperactivity, and inability to focus on complex and long-term tasks.

Think about what it would be like to have an entire generation that has not developed the capacity for empathy.
