“The exposures we now have are unprecedented. I remember a life without this radiation - but the children we have now are going to view the internet the way we view electricity. They’ll think it’s something that of course is ok because they never knew life without it” - Erica Mallery-Blythe, MD
GENERATION ZAPPED investigates the potential dangers of prolonged exposure to Radio Frequencies (RF) from wireless technology; it’s effects on our health and well-being, as well as the health and development of our children. From its links to breast and brain cancer, to its associations with increased infertility and genetic mutations related to autism and ADHD, to newly developed illnesses, such as Electrical Hyper-sensitivity (EHS).
Today we encounter a hundred thousand times the level of radiation from wireless technologies than we did decades ago. Yet the safety standards set by federal regulatory agencies remain outdated. New wireless devices such as smart phones, tablets and baby monitors to the latest “Internet of Things” continue to enter the market without any proper pre-market testing or post-market monitoring. Too little is done to ensure public safety and awareness.
Telecommunications is a multi-billion-dollar industry that goes to great lengths to lobby congress, influence policy-makers, and dispute any scientific data correlating wireless technology to potential health risks, which is reminiscent of the lead, asbestos and tobacco industries before them.
So how can we uncover the facts and reduce our exposure to limit the associated health risks during this technological revolution? GENERATION ZAPPED attempts to do just that.

Electromagnetic radiation such as Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) and Radio Frequencies (RF) are generated by: Cell phones, Wi-Fi routers, cordless phones, baby monitors, cell phone antennas, smart meters, smart boards, Bluetooth devices, and any wireless transmission.

Sabine El Gemayel
SABINE conveys her strong narrative skills and her deep understanding of human emotions into her directing work giving a voice to extraordinary people in ordinary situations and undermined social themes.
Wandering around the Middle East under inconceivable circumstances following the aftermath from the Persian Revolution and during the Lebanese Civil War, Sabine considers herself to be a citizen of the world. Her passion for filmmaking brought her to Los Angeles, where she resides since 1994.
After editing a number of award winning feature films, Sabine successfully marked her debut as a writer-director with NILOOFAR (in competition at Berlinale 59th Generation Kplus, Cannes Junior, AFI, and prestigious special screenings) .
Currently, Sabine has two compelling socially engaged screenplays ready for production and another feature documentary in development. As a mother, Sabine is on a mission to expose the Truth about the effects of cell phones radiations and wireless technologies on children’s health.
PETER is the founder and CEO of Clear Light Ventures, Inc., as well as an environmental health funder who focuses on toxins and wireless safety. He has spent the last 15 years successfully recovering his two sons from autism and sensory issues. Peter's work on detoxification and EMF's have been featured in the book Toxin Toxout: Getting Harmful Chemicals Out of Our Bodies and Our World, the book The Out-of-Sync Child Grows Up: Coping with Sensory Processing Disorder in the Adolescent and Adult Years, and CNN's Morgan Spurlock: Inside Man. He serves on the advisory board for the International Institute for Building-Biology & Ecology.
Today Peter is one of the leading funders in the country in this area of research, funding work at Harvard, Stanford, University of California, Berkeley and several leading environmental health non-profits. He speaks about autism and environmental health at conferences throughout the United States and abroad. Previously, he was a software designer for Netflix, Inc., Interwoven, Inc., Excite@Home, and Silicon Graphics. Prior to working in high-tech, he was an Executive Officer and pilot in the United States Navy. He has a B.A. in psychology from University of Detroit and an M.S. in computer science from Stanford University.
