When to Roar: Teaching Kids About Wildlife

by Brooke Faulkner It’s time to have “the talk” with your kid. It might be tricky. You don’t want him to feel like he’s done anything wrong, but his behavior makes it very clear that it’s time.

The Antidote to Electromagnetic Radiation? PEMF Therapy

by Louise Kuo Habakus It’s time for an electrosmog protection plan called PEMF or Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy or just plain “pulsed field.” The cell phone is the most adopted consumer technology ever.
