According to a study reported upon by Time Magazine back on May 14th of 2015, Americans now have a shorter attention span than that of a goldfish on average. Reporting that in the age of the cell phone, 'digital distraction' generally causes most people to lose concentration within 8 seconds, the study showed a 1/3 drop from the 'average' 12 second attention span the 'average' American had back in the year 2000.
The study, conducted by Microsoft itself, also reported the changes were likely a side effect of the brain 'evolving' to a mobile internet while dropping this bombshell which helps to explain why many feel that America is 'hopeless':
The survey also confirmed generational differences; for example, 77% of people aged 18 to 24 responded "yes" when asked, “When nothing is occupying my attention, the first thing I do is reach for my phone,” compared with only 10% of those over the age of 65.
And as we learn below, some experts are now warning that new cell phone technology, being unveiled nationwide by 2020, could turn America into one gigantic but invisible 'killing field' and 'gestapo-like tactics' are being used to censor this information.
At the end of the very brief 7 paragraph Time Magazine story the author quite appropriately ended with: "And now congratulate yourself for concentrating long enough to make it through this article."
While only 10% of those over the age of 65 instinctively grab their cell phones when nothing else is occupying their attention, the fact that 77% of those between 18 and 24 would do so is quite alarming.
With 84% of Americans claiming they can't go a day without their cell phones according to another recent study, how long will it be until our cell phones are 'surgically attached' to our heads? Before you call such a statement 'fake news', all we need to do is take a look at the technology coming forward in 2017 which already seeks to blend man and machine.
As billionaire entrepeneur Elon Musk (who launched 'Neuralink', a venture to merge the human brain with AI) recently warned, “Over time I think we will probably see a closer merger of biological intelligence and digital intelligence.” He added that “it's mostly about the bandwidth, the speed of the connection between your brain and the digital version of yourself, particularly output."
With the average American attention span averaging only 8 seconds helping to explain the 'dumbed down' state America is now in, it also helps to explain why the globalists can continue to get away with one thing after another.
Perfectly exemplified by the announcement made on September 10th of 2001 by DOD head Donald Rumsfeld that $2.3 trillion was missing from the Pentagon, any talk of the missing trillions had vanished into the wind by the following day. Also exemplified by Hillary Clinton being able to run for President of the US and almost winning despite an endless list of scandals that dwarf anything related to President Trump, we see the short attention spans of Americans being used every day by those intent upon bringing our nation down.
With the mainstream media's role in helping to 'dumb down' Americans clearly defined as shared in this June 29th story from Susan Duclos on ANP called "MSM Inflicting Carnage Upon America By Dumbing Down Half The Population - With Russia BS Story Dead, Media Manufactures New Scandals", we see great truths in this new story from Zero Hedge called "Is This The New Media Normal: Manufactured News For Hire?"
According to this recent story from Activist Post which reported upon one recent medical research study, the negative health effects of cell phones lag only behind those of smart meters when it comes to 'advances in technologies' that have been proven to be hazardous to our health. With 5G 'set to revolutionize the tech industry' according to this recent story from The Nation which claims it will provide "100-times-faster communication speed than the current mainstream technology used for smartphones" while also reporting "it holds the potential to significantly change the way we live and work", the negative health effects of 5G can't be overlooked.
Thousands of studies link low-level wireless radio frequency radiation exposures to a long list of adverse biological effects, including: DNA single and double strand breaks oxidative damage disruption of cell metabolism increased blood brain barrier permeability melatonin reduction disruption to brain glucose metabolism generation of stress proteins
Let’s not also forget that in 2011 the World Health Organization (WHO) classified radio frequency radiation as a possible 2B carcinogen.
According to the website Natural Health 365, "5G cellular technology will blanket planetary life with ultra-high microwave frequencies."Also warning us within their story that 'gestapo-like tactics' are being used to silence and shut down criticism of this new technology that will blanket the entire nation as also heard in the final video below, we see once again new technologies being used against us while criticism of such technologies is being stifled. From the Natural Health 365 story:
The 5G revolution is rushing toward us and it will bring a whole new era of harm from ultra-high microwave frequency radiation. And those who raise their voices against the danger to our health and our human rights to safety have been the subject of harassment, intimidation and attempts to silence them.
Gestapo tactics are being used to silence criticism of 5G technology At the July 14th, 2016 press conference, Bloomberg News reporter Todd Shields had his press credentials confiscated by members of the FCC security force. His offense? He was in the act of speaking with safety advocates concerned about radiation, who wanted to show him a tee shirt symbolizing their concerns.
Remember – things that the government once tested and considered “safe” include such toxic horrors as thalilomide, smoking, asbestos, lead paint, and Agent Orange. Can we really trust these so-called government ‘health’ agencies?
Consider this: A $25m government study by the National Toxicology Program has concluded that wireless radiation causes cancer. Natural health advocates say that 70 percent of non-industry studies assess wireless radiation as harmful; with industry studies, the effects are reversed – with only 32 percent showing that wireless radiation is harmful. But, either way, the dangers are clear and being ignored by our government due to corporate interests.
According to the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers journal of Microwave Theory and Techniques, the younger a person is, the more deeply cell phone radiation penetrates the brain. While the thickness of an adults skull helps prevent as much radiation getting into our brains, as we see in the graphic above, it's long been warned that the health effects of cell phones on children is much greater than that upon adults. According to military and health experts quoted in this January of 2014 story from Waking Times, wi-fi itself should be looked at as 'an invisible killing field'. “There are no safe levels of radiation” warned Barrie Trower, a physicist and former military expert on microwave radiation.
Warning us then that over many years now, and secretly for decades, scientific and medical evidence has conclusively proven that low frequency pulsed radio and microwave frequencies are causing significant damage to our cells resulting in extreme increases in autism, heart irregularities, brain wave changes, cancer and generational fertility destruction in males but even more significantly in females, what damage might 5G be capable of doing?
As their story goes on to report, the most prominent changes due to WiFi radiation though is with our children and teenagers due to their developing immune systems and thinner skeletal structures.
With it proven that 5G criticism is being heavily censored while the globalists are preparing to break it out across the country, the 2nd video below takes a look at the invisible killing fields that 5G will bring. The first video below takes a look at the rise of the 'robo-people' with an excellent compilation proving Americans are losing touch with reality as they become more attached to their cell phones.
As Natural News reported back in February of 2017, the FCC has abandoned safety while pushing untested 5G upon the public. And as Dr. Axe also reports, there is a very long history in America of products being rolled out without being adequately tested if they can bring in a lot of money to those who created it and according to him, there is still a great deal about the rollout of 5G that health experts don't yet understand.
