Dr. Mae-Wan Ho – The Danger of Wireless Technology


Dr. Mae-Wan Ho was an esteemed geneticist and visionary (she died last year) who bucked the establishment by opposing GMOs and contending that pollution from wireless technologies is a major issue of our time.

“An equation for me has no meaning, unless it represents a thought of God.”

Having barely passed high school math I had passed on watching the 2015 movie “The Man Who Knew Infinity,” about an Indian mathematician who had studied at Cambridge University. Until last night, and I was transfixed. Don’t let the academic subject matter put you off.
