Genre: Technology & Engineering - Social Aspects


Do you spend the majority of your day in front of a laptop, in artificial light? Then drive home, chatting on your Bluetooth before heating up your dinner in the microwave? Then you "relax" with your iPad, glancing at your flat screen TV that's downloading the latest movie, before setting the alarm on your phone and sleeping with it next to your head, the smart meter buzzing away in the background?Here's another question: How do you feel? Any headaches or ringing in the ears? Lack of energy? Putting on weight? Annoying little allergies? Ever wondered if there's a connection?Author and environmental scientist Jason Bawden-Smith believes that, with regard to the harmful effects of living in a technologically connected world, we are currently living in the dark.There's no doubt technology serves great function in this day and age, and will continue to do so. In The Dark simply brings stronger awareness to the adverse effects technology can have, and offers simple and practical measures that people can take, without feeling they have to compromise the lifestyle they want.
