Jones Library event – Generation Zapped documentary screening


Documentary Screening & Discussion at the Jones Library

Amherst, MA – A new documentary revealing the high cost of our addiction to digital devices and the health risks, especially for children and teens, from exposure to wireless radiation will be screened at the Jones Library on January 18, 2018 at 6:30 PM. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Diane Testa, a Senior Lecturer of Biomedical Engineering at Western New England University, to answer questions relating to this topic and the upcoming legislative bills.

Like cigarettes and toxic chemicals before it, emerging science is revealing the concerning reality that some people suffer health impacts due to radiation from wireless devices. In GENERATION ZAPPED, scientists, physicians and health researchers discuss the mounting scientific evidence on links to serious diseases and newly developed illnesses, such as Electrical Sensitivity (ES).  Children and teens are especially susceptible to radiation from baby monitors, tablets and cell phones, and wireless routers in the classroom. GENERATION ZAPPED empowers audiences to understand how to reduce their exposure to protect themselves and their families.

Currently, there are seven bills in the Massachusetts state legislature relating to the use of wireless in schools, Electrical Sensitivity, cell towers, and Smart Meters. Wireless Education, a non-profit with offices in Ashland, is working with Generation Zapped to screen the film through Massachusetts to raise awareness about the issue.

Free and open to the public.
