Are electromagnetic fields (EMFs) dangerous to human health? Am concerned due to local power co's new smart meters being installed on homes in my area
I say you're safe: The "independent medical thinkers" have been alleging horrible health problems caused by these fields for four decades without a single decent study that isn't loaded with recall bias. There's no animal model, no real theory as to why they're dangerous, and the field generated by your beating heart affects you more. By now, the NIH research piranhas would have found any danger that's real. ...Read more

I've heard kids under four shouldn't use playground equipment taller than themselves. Is that true?
It's OK: Many of these "restrictions" placed on equipment are there to protect the manufacturer from lawsuits. However, that is not to say any age child is ok with any piece of the playground. Accompany your child to the park, and play with him as much as possible. That ot only helps them learn proper usage, but is also a fun time with mom and dad. Once they know proper use, they can do more on their own. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
