The "radiation" that comes from all of these things is the same kind of "radiation" that comes streaming out of all light sources, and radiation from light comes in MUCH higher power. If radiation makes you feel ill, you need to live in complete darkness. All forms of HEAT generate huge amounts of radiation, too. Also, there is a standing challenge worth $1 million for anyone to prove their paranormal abilities. If you can accurately demonstrate knowledge of when an electric circuit or a radio is running, versus not, you can take Randi's challenge and earn a cool million in no time.
