Do You Need To Worry About These Modern Health Issues?

The world is constantly changing and shifting. Each year, there is a new technology introduced to the market and new social developments. With these changes, there are also fresh reports of health issues. It’s important to be aware of these and consider if they could ultimately impact you.

Governments are starting to take the issue of climate change and pollution a lot more seriously than they used to. However, many researchers feel that this will be too late and we are now beyond the point of no return. Indeed, one report suggested that the generation whose health will be impacted by climate change has already been born. What does this mean?

There are levels of pollution that are deemed livable and then there are those that are considered to be dangerous, posing more of a risk to your health than second-hand smoke. Unfortunately, if you look at the reports a lot of major cities across the world are now well over the recommended levels of pollution and have reached dangerous points. In some places, you can see the pollution like clouds or mist clogging up the sky. Interestingly, during the lockdown, the levels of pollution did drop considerably in a large number of places. Now, it’s back on the rise. As mentioned governments are taking steps to combat this. For instance, new diesel and petrol cars will be banned in the UK by 2030. But, it’s possible that we should have been wearing masks when we went outside long before the coronavirus pandemic. There are already places across the world like China where this is the accepted norm due to the threat of pollution. 


Have you heard of EMF? If you haven’t you’re not alone. EMF stands for electromagnetic frequency. It’s how numerous tech devices that we use in our everyday lives operate effectively. For instance, this is how your phone connects to your wireless headphones or how your laptop connects to the internet. If there’s a wireless connection in your life, EMF will be part of the equation.

Some researchers are concerned with the potential health threat because EMF waves do create certain levels of radiation. Now, there are a few things to be aware of here. First, many studies have found the levels of radiation produced by EMF waves to be harmless and have very little impact on our human bodies. But there are some red flags here. First, the method of testing whether things like Bluetooth uses a fully mature adult human brain. That’s a problem because children’s brains are quite different. They are less developed and there’s less of a barrier between their brain and the outside world. 

So, it’s possible that what is safe for adults won’t be safe for kids. This is why it’s recommended that you don’t let kids under the age of 12 use wireless headphones or similar tech devices. You might think that this is parents being paranoid. However, this is not the case. If you look at the safety documents that come with these devices, you’ll see warnings laid out clearly related to EMF energy. 

Of course, electromagnetic energy can impact your health in other ways too. For instance, you might have a lot of tech in your bedroom. Research shows that this is going to impact your sleeping pattern. It might stop you from getting to the deepest level of sleep which could be one of the reasons that you still feel exhausted when you wake up in the morning. There are cases for your tech that supposedly will prevent this radiation from leaking through and impacting you. 


Did you know that we are more stressed now than we ever were before? Stress issues are on the rise with many people admitting that at some point in the past year they felt completely overwhelmed and unable to function effectively. While this is certainly worrying, it’s important to understand that stress can have a variety of different causes. You could feel stressed due to issues at work or problems in your personal life. If you are worried about stress getting the better of you, you should certainly think about how you can address it more effectively. There are lots of ways that you can explore which will help you combat stress.

For instance, you might want to think about using CBD treatments. CBD works brilliantly and provides the health benefits of cannabis without the high. Legal and easily accessible in most places across the world, CBD comes in a variety of forms including bath bombs. As such, you should easily be able to fit this into your typical lifestyle. 

You might also want to explore the possibility of meditation. Did you know that meditation can have an impact on the structure of your brain? Researchers believe that it could ensure that you can cope more effectively and quickly solve problems that you encounter. 

It can be quite tricky to get started meditating. However, there are a few tricks that you can use to gain the most benefits. For instance, you can listen to music to clear your mind and ensure that your senses are free from any distractions. You just need to make sure that you find a quiet place to meditate where you are going to be able to effectively focus on your deepest inner thoughts. 

We hope this helps you understand that there are a lot of modern health issues that you do need to be aware of. Luckily, there are also steps that you can take to protect yourself from some of the greatest dangers. If you do this, you will be able to preserve your quality of life and ensure that you don’t have to worry about some of these modern threats. You will be prepared for the challenges of tomorrow for your health.
