GENERATION ZAPPED: Documentary Film Screening
Directed by Sabine El Gemayal
USA / 2016 / 93mins

An eye-opening documentary revealing that wireless technology poses serious health risks, from infertility to cancer.   GENERATION ZAPPED investigates the potential dangers of prolonged exposure to Radio Frequencies (RF) from wireless technology; its effects on our health and well-being, as well as the health and development of our children. From its links to breast and brain cancer, to its associations with increased infertility and genetic mutations related to autism and ADHD, to newly developed illnesses, such as Electrical Hyper-Sensitivity (EHS).
Today we encounter a hundred thousand times the level of radiation from wireless technologies than we did decades ago. Yet the safety standards set by federal regulatory agencies are outdated. New wireless devices such as smart phones, tablets and baby monitors to the latest Internet of Things continue to enter the market without any proper pre-market testing or post-market monitoring. Too little is done to ensure public safety and awareness.

So how can we uncover the facts and reduce our exposure to limit the associated health risks during this technological revolution?  GENERATION ZAPPED attempts to do just that.

A wifi classroom is like the inside of a microwave oven set at very low power. Children are exposed to that wifi radiation six hours every school day, five days a week, and for several months during the year. - Magda Havas, Associate Professor of Environmental and Resource Studies, Trent University, Canada

Followed by a discussion with:
Director: Sabine El Gemayel
Executive Producer: Peter Sullivan, CEO Clear Light Ventures
George Carlo, former chairman of the International Association for Wireless Telecommunication Industry (CTIA) Wireless Technology Research
