Associated Press letter

regarding wearable sleep devices & brain waves

Dear Rogelio Solis, Clete Kushida, & Associated Press:

This message is written in response to your syndicated article titled "Latest Gadgets Know if You're Sleeping, Restless, Snoring" that is posted in the Atlanta Journal Constitution on July 11, 2017.  I am a former EEG technician at Duke Health, who has serious concerns about the sleep monitoring devices featured in your article.  Please provide readers with more details about the Stanford and MIT studies.  Who funds this research?  Have device-wearing patients given informed consent? What happens if the device that "can gently vibrate to nudge someone into a different sleep position" malfunctions?

The article does mention that the tracking bed sensor might be "a lucrative enterprise."  Indeed.  It is doubtful that the goal of Beddit company is to benefit the growing number of insomniacs.  Rather, it is to make a profit.

Finally, interference with our circadian rhythms is due to climate engineering.  See below for more information.
