Just before I take a breather for the holidays I would like to make a
related observation. In Australia the problem of addictive gambling is
especially apparent with electronic gaming machines. Unlike with the old
mechanical one-arm bandits, the patron is now sitting right up to a CRT
monitor, essentially a large color TV. I have taken measurements in
front of these things and the ELF exposure is significant - the same as
sitting right up to a TV set. There is probably an RF component as well.
I have wondered if the EMF exposure is now a new and significant factor
in addictive gambling. I also think it could be possible to design a
gaming machine especially to take advantage of this factor. Zap the
player and empty their bank account!
The issue of addiction to cell phone microwaves is something that
urgently needs investigation, especially for children and cell phone
use. Attached is a Spanish paper I had translated and submitted to the
ACNEM Journal. It may be published in 2008.
