Isolated societies

A question. I came across a statement today along the lines of
'the Industrial Revolution has affected all societies in the world'.

What do you think? Are there any societies that have escaped
the effects of the IR? If any, I would imagine they would be hunter-
gatherer societies in the rainforest somewhere who have never met
an anthropologist.

And how do you define effects? Does a vapor trail in the sky count?
A Coke bottle falling on the head?
