Mankind evolved on a planet where background microwave radiation was infinitesimal.
Today, most live in a sea of microwave radiation and radio-frequencies (RF) emitted from wireless technologies — routers, smart-phones, tablets, baby monitors, smart TVs, appliances, smart meters and more.
Globally, there are now more than 6 billion cellphone subscriptions, which means we’re nearing the point where every single person on the planet has one of these devices, and most now get their first cellphone or tablet at a very early age.
According to the Pew Research Center, 90% of adults say their phone is frequently with them and rarely turned off.
Americans are so attached to their smartphones and social networks that they check Facebook and Twitter an astounding 17 times each day on average, and many teens spend a mind-boggling nine hours a day on social media.
Many experts now warn that chronic, heavy exposure to these electromagnetic fields (EMF’s) could be having severe repercussions for our health, especially that of children, who are being exposed in utero.
Fetuses and young children have never before been exposed to this level of pulsed radiation, and it’s still too early to determine the exact extent of the harm, as it may take decades for effects to manifest.
In recent years, it’s become increasingly clear that mitochondrial dysfunction is at the root of most chronic disease, so in terms of public health, the effects of chronic EMF exposure may be far more dangerous than currently reported.
We may not only face an avalanche of brain cancer in coming decades, but also heart disease, neurological disorders, infertility and newly identified disorders such as electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS).
The mobile industry’s own research in the 13-country Interphone study showed a 40% increased risk of brain cancer from 1,640 or more hours of cellphone use.
Independent Swedish research published in 2007 showed a 540% increased risk of brain cancer from greater than 2,000 hours of cellphone use.
The connection between cellphone radiation and cancer became even stronger when the respected Ramazzini Institute in Italy published its lifetime exposure findings, effectively duplicating the NTP’s findings.
According to Fiorella Belpoggi, director of research at the Ramazzini Institute and the study’s lead author, RF radiation from cellphones should probably be classified as a “probable” human carcinogen rather than a “possible” carcinogen.
Two of the organs that are the most vulnerable to outside RF interference are your heart and your brain. Both of these organs also have the highest density of voltage gated calcium channels(VGCCs).
While the risks may be significant, these technologies have become too embedded in our everyday lives to get rid of them. They can, however, be made safer, and we as consumers can use them more safely.
Here are several suggestions that will help reduce your EMF exposure.
Connect your desktop computer to the internet via a wired Ethernet connection and be sure to put your desktop in airplane mode.
Also avoid wireless keyboards, trackballs, mice, game systems, printers and portable house phones and opt for wired versions.
If you must use Wi-Fi, shut it off when not in use, especially at night when you are sleeping. Ideally, work toward hardwiring your house so you can eliminate Wi-Fi altogether. If you have a notebook without any Ethernet ports, a USB Ethernet adapter will allow you to connect to the internet with a wired connection.
Shut off the electricity to your bedroom at night. This typically works to reduce electrical fields from the wires in your wall unless there is an adjoining room next to your bedroom. If that is the case, use an EMF meter to determine if you also need to power down the adjacent room.
Use a battery-powered alarm clock, ideally one without any light. I use a talking clock for the visually impaired.
If you still use a microwave oven, consider replacing it with a steam convection oven, which will heat your food as quickly and far more safely.
