Once omnipresent telly host Noel Edmonds has claimed that "the biggest problem we have is not Ebola, it's not AIDS, it's electro smog."
Electro smog, according to Edmonds, is a product of "the Wi-Fi and all of the systems that we are introducing into our lives" which "are destroying our own natural electro-magnetic fields."
These comments are reported by gossip site Digital Spy.
The psuedo-Buddhist aspects of the Deal or No Deal presenter's interview were classic hippy ramblings about, er, energy: "If you want to be happy you need to think of yourself as a container of energy."
There is a universal energy, Edmonds claimed, which "embraces" us. "When you appreciate this, life becomes a lot more exciting."
"You don't live life, life lives you," offered the bearded sage. "There isn't such a thing as death, it's just departure. You cannot die. It's been known for a very long time."
The energy leaves your container but it has to go somewhere. You cannot destroy energy. My energy will return to where it came from – part of a massive, incomprehensible universal web of energy.
"Everything is about energy," said the former associate of Mr Blobby.
"We're surrounded by electro mist, fog and smog. We're covering ourselves in the wrong sorts of electro-magnetism." added Edmonds. "These idiot politicians who talk about climate change, for goodness' sake, do they really think little us can do anything about it?" he asked. "No, of course not."
Edmonds says he remains healthy through a £2,000 device called an EMPpad, which purports to be based on NASA research.
It removes pain and reduces stress and people tell me I don't look 66.
"I use [my EMPpad] eight minutes a day – it has changed my life," offered Edmonds, who then explained how it is able to do so.
"It recalibrates all the blood cells and readjusts the electro-magnetism in your body. Think of a yoga mat, connected to a computer – it provides you with pulsed electro-magnetism."
Edmonds was interviewed to advertise his new radio show "Positively Happy." It is ironic that he took to an electronic medium to spread his message about electronic media producing the very "electro smog" he deplores. ®
