A team from the Netherlands has discovered a link between workplace exposure to extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields (ELF-MFs) and a doubling of your risk of developing the most common form of motor neurone disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) - or Lou Gehrig's disease.

These extremely low frequency fields can commonly be found in radio navigation, military communications and electricity networks.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
