As a runner who engages a lot with beginner runners, I have often been asked this question, some ask it matter-of-factly as if it was a business dealing while others giggle with embarrassment as soon as the words leave their mouth.

I wake up each morning (except Monday rest days!) to workout after dropping the kids at school and before heading to work. I try to eat clean, drink lots of water, and keep stress at a minimum. I pretty much think that I live a healthy and clean life.
But then I read about the health risks that our gadgets and electronics can bring us and I suddenly question how safe I am. According to experts, our mobile phones, televisions, ipads, laptops and other electronics deregulate the bioelectric flow in our bodies and can leave us feeling dull and tired.
