Wired computer connections like dark chocolate

Happy belated Easter: is your preference milk chocolate (wi-fi) or dark chocolate (wired connection)?

I decided to partake in a bit of humour (and seriousness) seeing as we are all a bit cooped up.

Let’s equate milk chocolate with wi-fi. These are generally the go-to if offered chocolate or an internet connection. And let’s equate a wired connection or fibre optic with dark chocolate. Folks like myself do exist who still prefer the wire and the dark chocolate. Wired connections are faster, safer and more secure. And dark chocolate is healthier, an aphrodisiac, and more flavourful (once you get used to it).

What I am saying here, and of course this is a bit tongue in cheek, is that just as we can get used to dark chocolate given the benefits, similarly we can also get used to wired connects once you really understand the benefits.

The safety part of wired connections is vital. The lead scientist Dr. Fiorella Belpoggi at the Ramazzini Institute study in Italy completed March 2018 stated that any microwave radiation, and that includes wi-fi, is strongly carcinogenic. She also said that it should be turned off when not in use. The FDA asked the National Toxicology Program in the U.S. to do a study to show the health effects, and their study completed in September 2018 had virtually the same results.

In the past months satellites for 5G were being put into the ionosphere and plans are for many more, which will eventually blanket the Earth with wi-fi. Why are we not heeding scientists? Begin a conversation with your neighbours about turning off wi-fi when not in use. And we need to keep reminding industry that scientists have revealed what we need to know. A moraturium on 5G world-wide is what is required. Switzerland has asked for one, Canada could also.

I have been feeling a bit on the hyper side lately. Perhaps I am getting too much milk chocolate? Stay safe, and seriously, look into the benefits of dark chocolate and of wired computer connections. It’s for the health of yourself and future humans on our beautiful planet.
