Scientific Feng Shui and your Bed

by Laurie McAndish King on July 8, 2010

A Scientific American article, “Left-sided Cancer: Blame your bed and TV?,” suggests that “as we sleep on our coil-spring mattresses, we are in effect sleeping on an antenna that amplifies the intensity of the broadcast FM/TV radiation. Asleep on these antennas, our bodies are exposed to the amplified electromagnetic radiation for a third of our life spans.” The long-term effect of such exposure to radiation may be increased susceptibility to breast cancer and prostate cancer.
