Here is what we know: Hands-free is better than hand-held and hand-held usage is easier to enforce. Texting while driving is dangerous, worse than driving drunk. That should be banned. Trying to find your cell phone to answer a call is dangerous, but if the driver uses good judgment, then it is a limited hazard. The Virginia Tech study shows that driver judgment is a big factor, but even with typical driver judgment, visual and manual tasks will cause more accidents. We also know that talking hands-free is not as safe as driving without distractions, so a driver should never assume that a hands-free task is risk-free. Just because it is not illegal does not mean it is safe. A hands-free task is merely less distracting than a visual task.
Keep your television set plugged into a surge-protected switched outlet strip, and switch off the power to the strip whenever you’re not watching it. Newer televisions aren’t really powered off when they’re “off,” and evil people have even designed in “features” by which the camera and microphone in your television can be turned on remotely (through the internet) without your permission or knowledge, and the resulting video and audio recordings then sent to whomever wants to invade your privacy. Even if your privacy isn’t a concern, if you want to reduce your cumulative exposure to EMFs, switch off power to your television set using a physical (not a programmable) switch.
