Dr Julie McCredden PhD is an expert on the harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) and electromagnetic fields (EMF) on children and adolescents.
She says humans are now bathed in man made electromagnetic fields.
"We know children and babies are being exposed from a very, very young age," she says.
"In the US more than a third of babies at six months use computerised toys, smartphones and tablets."
Have you ever considered where your patients live could be making them sick?
Do you ask them how close they live to heavy traffic or if they are near a cell phone tower?
Building biologist Nicole Bijlsma says clinicians need to know more about the proven health hazards lurking in our homes.
More Australians are reportedly suffering severe psychological distress due to COVID-19 as are individuals in China, Italy, Norway and the US.
The Australian National University has tracked the mental health of Australians and found higher levels of psychological distress and serious mental illness, particularly in young adults, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Inner Environment 1: Optimising Health with Herbal, Nutritional and Environmental Medicine
With children and adults working and studying at home due to COVID-19 I am receiving a lot of enquiries on how to help kids, teenagers and their parents stay focused.
The basics of a healthy diet, restful and adequate sleep and exercise are a must. You cannot supplement yourself out of a poor diet, cannot take enough "uppers" to overcome lack of sleep and you simply cannot get enough blood pumping through your brain without moving your body.
Human immunity, inflammation and the body's battle against viruses is today at the forefront of medical research. With more than 280,000 people reported to have died from COVID19 virus, doctors are struggling with the new and challenging behaviour of COVID-19.
What role, if any, could medicinal cannabis and the endogenous cannabinoid system play in the battle against this virus? Is there any evidence that medicinal cannabis could be useful in supporting our immune system?
Monday 4 May saw the commencement of the ACNEM Global Conference "Environmental and Viral Disruptors". Professor John Hewson opened the Conference with a summary of the ten catastrophic global risks identified by the "Commission for the Human Future" that threaten the survival of humanity. He outlined how the confluence of multiple planetary threats menace our future and discussed the role of the Commission in bringing the issues and possible solutions to the attention of citizens and politicians. He summarized the Commissions recent report "Surviving and Thriving in the 21st Century".

Grab a coffee and join journalist Julie McCrossin as she interviews ACNEM Board member Dr Christabelle Yeoh on integrative medicine. What does it mean in practise and what are the benefits for not only the patient but the practitioner?
Julie, herself a cancer survivor, probes Dr Yeoh on the empathic link between patient and practitioner and the vital importance of asking the right questions. Discover Dr Yeoh's philosophy: If you don't ask, the patient won't tell, and you won't know.
People from all around the world have logged into the first week of the 2020 ACNEM Online Conference: Environmental and Viral Disruptors.
The biggest event in the history of the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine has opened to a global audience as it brings together world leading experts to combat the greatest health and environmental risks facing humanity.
Telehealth or telemedicine has a long history. As far back as 1879 a Lancet article wrote about doctors using the telephone to reduce unnecessary office visits.
In 1925 a cover of Science and Intervention magazine showed a doctor diagnosing a patient by radio and inside the article envisaged a world where one day a video examination of a patient may be possible.
Since 5G networks began rolling out across the world, we have been providing medical and allied healthcare practitioners with the range of environmental health impacts and facts via our education and training sessions.
Here in Australia, the three biggest networks have started to activate their 5G networks in limited areas, but soon widespread expansion will commence.
Dr John Hewson will proudly open the 2020 ACNEM Online Conference: Environmental & Viral Disruptors.
Dr Hewson says humans have increasingly caused significant harm to themselves and to the planet by prioritising economic and population growth over environmental and social consequences.
You are invited to what is arguably THE most important Event in ACNEM's almost 40-year history... it is certainly our most ambitious. We consider the need has never been greater.
How we reduce the risks to ourselves, our families and ultimately our patients is a challenge ACNEM has accepted and we invite you to be part of this unique global event.
Air pollution currently contributes to over 3000 premature and preventable deaths per year in Australia.* Associate Professor Vicki Kotsirilos AM will be speaking at this year's Conference on Urban Air Pollution Link to Fires and Climate Change. Vicki will present some of the scientific evidence to describe how air pollutants, even in urban environments with exposures below accepted Government standards, can seriously harm human health and are a cause of a number of health conditions that commonly present to medical practitioners.
Bushfire smoke reduces air quality and may affect people's health. Bushfire smoke is a mixture of different-sized particles and noxious gases. The larger particles contribute to the visible haze; the finer particles called Particulate Matter 2.5 (PM2.5) which means particulate matter of less than 2.5 micrometres in diameter, are more harmful to health. These particles are inhaled by the lungs and can enter deeper into the lungs and be absorbed into the blood stream affecting other organs of the body.
