Like most all of you, I have gotten caught up in the technical era we live in. I was introduced to electronic type devices and became intrigued with them since the first electronic typewriter back in the early 1970’s. From there I was introduced to my first computer in the late 1970’s when you had a green screen with white or yellow lettering. I never dreamed I would see the mass use of these items, which today are totally different from what they were like when I first used them. WOW – how they have grown and been added to, first with CB’s, bulky car phones, etc., and now cell phones, WiFi’s, machines you can talk to, all sizes and types of computers, baby monitors, microwave ovens, and etc. These items are all wonderful but are they as great for us as they are touted to be? A term that comes up frequently is EMFs. I had no idea what that meant so I decided to research it.
What are EMFs and how are they harmful?
EMF stands for Electromagnetic Field. It is a byproduct of an electrical current. The electromagnetic spectrum shows the spectrum of emissions released by this field. Ionizing waves, like gamma rays and nuclear energy, X-Rays, radiation, and even some extreme UV Rays can instantly cause damage to the body.
I want to discuss the personal use of electronic instruments that affect the average individual through everyday use.
Everyone needs to understand the how and why some of the above mentioned various energies, can and do cause damage to the body. It is a slow damage, starting with the use of the TV, since this item is what most families have in their homes. We have been told by the media that the rays coming from the TV can cause a person harm. To avoid this we were warned not to sit close to the TV screen, etc. Next comes the computer, that some of you use on a daily basis all day long, especially if it is part of your work. Others of you only use the computer during short periods of the day, and some of you maybe never. The EMF electronic waves coming from computers have been shown scientifically to have a damaging effect on a person if they use computers consistently everyday. Then, last but not least, there is the Cell Phone which many people use or carry around on their person all day long I can remember when as a child we had to wait for the person on the Party Line of our home phone to get off the line before we could use the telephone that plugged into the wall. If you were away from home you used Pay phones to keep in touch with friends, families, etc. But, today, not only adults but children and teenagers have Cell phones that seem to be, as I like to say, ‘glued to their hand or body somewhere’.
I am guilty – I have a cell phone too. It is not glued to my person however, meaning I do not carry it around with me at all times, but it is where I can get to it when I need it. I seldom give my cell number to anyone. I do have a bad habit, though, of using it to play games, take pictures, check my email, and text with. I text, because my family will answer a text quicker than they will answer the phone. More frequently people are using their cell phones as their main phone source. I still have a ‘landline phone’ in my home that I like to use for important or long winded phone calls or conversations.
The question I pose, is, can this much use and/or the ‘glued to the hand’ use of cell phones be a dangerous thing? We know, by seeing it on TV, and hearing it said on the radio, that cell phones are dangerous to use when driving a vehicle, but, do you ever hear it said that cell phones are hazardous to your health.
Truths about Cell Phones are: The safety standards were last updated in 1996; Cell phone radiation is on the list of Class 2B “possible” carcinogens, next to lead and the insecticide DDT which got banned 40 years ago; reducing cell phone use doesn’t cut the risk because “wifi networks, bluetooth devices, “smart” utility meters and cell phone towers all expose you to levels of EMF radiation a quadrillion times higher than in nature.” This is just a short list of the hazards of cell phone use.
Other countries from around the world are working on solving this problem. Are we? Can you be shielded from this danger and if so how? Two of the newest items of interest that you may or may not have heard about yet, are the WiFi, and “Smart” Meters. I have only recently heard about the “smart” meters which the local power companies are putting have in our backyards to replace to old electric meters. I was told by the meter man that they are doing this to “eliminate having to send people out to read your electricity use on the meters”, which electric companies have been doing for eons. When I asked about the radiation, I was told, “the radiation level was not as dangerous as it is being touted to be, and that I shouldn’t worry about it.” My research tells me otherwise. Our meters are pretty far away from our houses, however, there are meters that are being put on the side of the house, in the garage, or in the basements. This brings the radiation closer to the people who might be affected by it. Case studies show that people that are exposed to the radiation from “smart” meters can suffer from early menopause, hot flashes, uncontrollable weight gain, severe insomnia, mood swings, as well as many other symptoms leading to health issues.
Studies show that radiation from WiFi Routers, especially in close proximity to humans can cause fatigue, and depression, among other symptoms.
Another device, that to me is really scary is the Baby Monitor. They have been in use for many years to monitor babies as they sleep in their cribs during the night, and as well, during the day. It has been proven through studies in Switzerland that the radiation emitted from these devices can cause long term health issues in babies. I quote. “The dangers of Electro Magnetic Fields or EMFs – are now widely recognized as a serious 21st century health threat by the American Academy of Pediatrics, Consumer Reports, The Cleveland Clinic, and independent researchers from Harvard, Columbia and Yale.”
Can this problem be fixed? As mentioned earlier, the effects of EMF radiation on the human body doesn’t just happen overnight. It happens over a long period of time. At first, your body can and does handle toxic exposure. Depending on the frequency you are exposed, you can heal from it and feel great. It is only, and I quote, that “after being exposed to EMFs 24/7 for several years, independent researchers have found that the human body starts deteriorating rapidly.” They are calling this the Rapid Aging Syndrome. The electronic term for this toxic pollution is being called “electrosmog.” From the Trent University in Canada, we are told that “symptoms of excess electromagnetic pollution includes, poor sleep, chronic fatigue, confusion, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and a host of other symptoms that doctors mistakenly treat with pharmaceuticals.” Doctors as well as the people themselves who experience these symptoms (as they are similar to many diseases), attribute them to aging, or the stressful lifestyle many folks live today.
This is turning into a lecture, but I can’t resist informing the public regarding this subject. Other things you should know are: EMFs weaken your good bacteria, making potential invaders like viruses and parasites stronger; EMF exposure weakens the thin barrier which protects your brain against toxins like heavy metals, pesticides, and viruses; EMFs even stunt plant growth, etc.
Reducing the dangers of EMFs can be as simple in some instances as taking the cell phone out of your pocket; taking the baby monitor out of the bed/bedroom; using the Airplane Mode on your phone – which I have heard works pretty good; cleaning out your house – getting rid of devices that emit radiation; and as the electric company service person I interviewed told me, DO NOT BUY AN “ALEXIS” or any of the many devices like it. They emit dangerous radiation, and as he said, and I quote, “are being used to spy on an unassuming public.”
Radiation has an effect on your red blood cells – clumping them together, causing poor blood flow, and it has an effect on oxygenation and regeneration. You want your blood cells to be healthy so they can circulate freely to perform their key functions in your body.
Think about it folks – wouldn’t it be great to feel healthy again; look younger; have high levels of energy; not be exhausted or have to depend on caffeine, sugar, pharmaceutical meds or over-the-counter meds, or expensive supplements to fuel your body; sleep well so you don’t wake up groggy; have mental clarity; have a vibrant body that moves well, and etc. etc. I don’t need to tell you how you would like to feel or should feel. It has to be your decision.
Take the information I have given you, and do your own continued research, find your own solution and act on it. There is a book out there called “The Non-Tinfoil Guide to EMFs.” You might want to check it out. It really delves into how EMFs are damaging our/your health and further tells you what you can do to protect yourself.
BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY – CHANGE YOUR LIFESTYLE – MINIMIZE YOUR EXPOSURE TO EMFs!!!!
