Long Beach High School senior Evan Michaels has had his research published in the Long Island Edition of Natural Awakenings magazine. His article, “Why You Should Practice Safe Tech,” highlights the concerns associated with radiofrequency radiation exposure from wireless technology.
Evan selected this topic for his Creativity, Action and Service project, a component of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program, after studying it for a math paper last year. His work identifies risks related to RFR and provides preventative tips such as keeping cell phones away from one’s body and using airplane mode when possible.
I started to realize the risk and wanted to raise awareness,” Evan said.
