In this modern world knowingly or unknowingly we expose ourselves to many invisible hazards.
We are hooked on wireless technology and there is a negative side effect to all of this. Evidence shows that just a few minutes of mobile use begins to heat brain tissue and affect the cells.
When we listen to government, telecom and power industry spokesmen speak about the possible health effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields, it seems they would prefer us to believe that there is no cause for concern.
Or at worst, there is controversy in the research about whether EMF exposure has any negative biological or health effects. They may cite study after study where no effect was detected. They may cite statistics about how many such negative correlation studies exist. And they may come to the conclusion that EMF exposure is safe.
Oddly, the facts they cite may be correct, but their conclusions are not.
In all examples of EMF, the energy field causes a change in everything it encounters.
EMF is a broad term which includes electric fields generated by charged particles, magnetic fields generated by charged particles in motion, and radiated fields such as TV, radio, and microwaves.
Electric fields are measured in units of volts per meter or V/m. Magnetic fields are measured in milli-Gauss or mG. The field is always strongest near the source and diminishes as you move away from the source.
These energies have the ability to influence particles at great distances. For example, the radiation from a radio tower influences the atoms within a distant radio antenna, allowing it to pick up the signal.
Despite the many wonderful conveniences of electrical technology, the effects of EMF on biological tissue remains the most controversial aspect of the EMF issue with virtually all scientists agreeing that more research is necessary to determine safe or dangerous levels. For instance, iron, necessary for healthy blood, and stored in the brain is highly affected by EMF.
If you haven’t read “Body Electric” written by Dr. Robert Becker, you must read it as soon as possible. Dr. Becker has spent his entire career studying the use of electricity to grow back limbs. In his pursuit, he has found evidence of the intricate electrical current that our body uses to function properly.
Dr. Becker has successfully used electricity to heal wounds from flesh-eating bacteria that had been considered incurable. In fact Dr. Becker was a pioneer in discovering the correlation between EMF and illness at the advent of the technological era, and has witnessed the alarming increase in diseases that he feels are caused by EMF radiation.
On the other hand, he has found miraculous ways to use electricity to heal the body. However, the bottom line is that our bodies are finely tuned instruments with many systems that need to be in alignment to work properly. EMF radiation disrupts that balance in the same way that chemical ingestion through the western diet disrupts the nutritional and pH balance in our bodies causing disease.
The permeability of the cell membrane of our nerves, blood vessels, skin, and other organs is affected. The intricate DNA of the chromosomes has been shown to be affected by EMFs as well. In fact, throughout our bodies, every biochemical process involves precisely choreographed movement of EMF-sensitive atoms, molecules, and
After more than 25 years of intensive study, the health and safety conscious Swedish government has established a safety limit for exposure to ELF magnetic field at 2.5 mG, and VLF magnetic fields at only 0.25 mG.
Although the U.S. government has been slower to act in establishing its own standards, the Swedish standard is generally accepted throughout the world. What this possibly means is that if someone consistently experiences exposure which exceeds the standard, that person could be at risk for developing health problems which can range from headaches, fatigue, and dizziness to skin rashes, miscarriage, leukemia, and cancer.
In fact, numerous court cases where plaintiffs claim to have been injured by EMFs are now in progress.
Even though the controversy of conflicting scientific studies persists, it seems strange that cigarettes and alcohol are packaged with warnings we already know about, and the sodium, fat, and cholesterol content of foods must appear on the labels, but no one tells you that the average hair dryer, or vacuum cleaner emits 300 mG OR MORE.
The Office of Technology Assessment of the Congress of the United States recommends a policy of “prudent avoidance” with respect to EMF. Prudent avoidance means to measure fields, determine the sources, and act to reduce exposure.
This same thinking can be applied to the vast body of research that now exists about whether and in what ways EMF exposure impacts our biology.
Those of you who are still skeptical may ask: “So how can it be that so many studies do not find a link between EMF exposure and health effects”? The problem lies in what they are not saying.
First, you must look closely at who is funding the search, and therefore the motivation behind it. It is easy to imagine that studies (funded by industries whose profits would be damaged by proof that EMF are dangerous) might be crafted with a negative outcome built into the design of the study. Let me give you an example…
A study designer wants to show that there is no link between the amount of cell phone usage (minutes per day) and the risk of brain cancer (which takes a long time to develop even with known cancer causing agents).
It would seem logical and appropriate to measure the actual minutes a phone is held to the head for a large population, and correlate that data with the incidence of brain tumors over a long period, compared to a control group of people who have no radiation exposure. But instead, one could use the “billed minutes” data with no attention to how the phone was used (directly against the head, vs. hands-free, vs. speaker phone, vs. texting, etc.), versus the number of brain tumors over short period, and compare that relationship against a control group which has plenty of background exposure even if they don’t own a cellphone.
All three factors would skew the results toward finding that there was not a big difference in the amount of brain tumors in the “exposed” group compared to the control group. Or that phone usage does not correlated with incidence of tumor at all. Think this is silly? So do we. And yet this is exactly how some of the research is done. Take a look at the Interphone study.
And to top it off, despite heavily skewing the outcome of the study to show no correlation, the study still showed “suggestions of an increased risk” at “the highest exposure levels,” But instead of revealing the truth, the “researchers” still concluded (and the media still reported) that “The use of mobile phones for over ten years shows no increased risk of brain tumors.” Really?
In addition, Dr David Carpenter, Dean at the School of Public Health State University of New York says 30% of all childhood cancers are associated with EMF exposure. Doctors from the United Kingdom have issued warnings urging children under 16 not to use mobiles.
Even though it is clear after looking at the facts that electromagnetic radiations emitted from mobile phones and other wireless and powerful electronic devices are bound to affect our health and wellbeing, we tend to ignore this as people have become totally dependent on modern technology.
We are subjecting ourselves and our loved ones to this external stress and harmful EMF day in and day out.
Just because we can’t see radiation, doesn’t mean it is not there effecting us in a negative way. Fortunately there is a solution, using EMF protection. These are the devices I have researched:
Vortex BIO SHIELD is a highly rated anti-radiation tab for all small wi-fi devices from cell phones to ipads and e-readers at a very reasonable price ($29 right now at Amazon, usually $69). It can be used to harmonize EMF emitted from mobile phones as well as other electronic gadgets such as Lap Tops, Computers and Cordless Phones. These tabs are made from special metals and minerals that are known to absorb radiation.
EMF Protection for cell phones.
The Bioelectric Shield is a necklace that comes in many styles for men, women and children that protects the body from environmental EMF radiation. The devices are expensive but powerful and carry a 90 day satisfaction guarantee.
Another option is to check out the products at Amazon: Q-Link has technology similar to bioshield, whereas Bioexcel and Quantum are much less expensive but not as powerful. Read reviews at Amazon to cet an idea of customer satisfaction.
