But take a broader view of history and you’ll see that even the oldest steam engine is a very modern invention indeed. Humans have been using tools to multiply their muscle power for something like 2. Put it another way: Now we have engines, of course, we couldn’t possibly do without them.

A simple Google search about any one of these topics will provide more information than you could ever want. I was assured that they were completely safe. Heck, you can get them in malls, so I assumed they were pretty benign. Ultrasounds have, in fact, been implicated in autism among other neurological disorders.
