Right under our very noses, in our homes, and at our fingertips, a secretive danger to our health is lurking.

Wireless technology is obviously one of the greatest achievements in the last 100 years, and could arguably be the greatest technological achievement of our lifetimes. But those who created it and sell its products forgot one important piece of the puzzle: knowing exactly how it affects people.

Today, the research, personal experiences, and evidence showing that this is a very real issue only continue to pour in. And science keeps steadily unraveling the truth: our wireless technology emits electromagnetic frequencies (EMF’s) that can be (and are) harmful to our bodies due to their unperceived radiation.

This includes our cell phones, smart phones, laptops, tablets, televisions, and even our wireless routers and so much more—though the last device in this list is one of the greatest radiation culprits of all.

ARE EMF’S RESPONSIBLE FOR MYSTERIOUS HEALTH ISSUES?

Studies are helping to explain the new cases of imperceptible health problems, fatigue, malaise, and undiagnosed illnesses occurring in more and more of the population as of late. One of the suspects: radiation from EMF’s permeating from our daily devices.

Sound a little crazy, or a little too much like a “tin-foil hat” theory?

It may be surprising that it isn’t, in reality. That’s because, at the same time, more and more major health authorities are acknowledging the very real evidence and health hazards from this technology all around us. This even includes WHO (the World Health Organization), the largest global health authority on health issues.

Unfortunately, the very real and serious science behind these dangers is in peril—perhaps just as in peril as our health may be.

While important research is finally gaining traction and reaching the public, larger companies that thrive and sell such products are much happier keeping the health dangers of these technologies quiet—even to the point of funding research that says otherwise.

The good news? There are ways to protect and reduce the negative effects of EMF’s from devices, no matter the research or differences of opinion around the world.

THE SCIENCE: NOT AS CRAZY AS PEOPLE THINK

People may not think that the human body can be affected by something as invisible as EMF’s. But apparently, it can be—and maybe even more extensively than one would think, believe, or expect.

For one, the body is crackling with energy and electricity all the time. It’s how we function, move, eat, run, work—how we do everything. It’s how organs in the body do their tasks, keep everything in balance, and give us energy.

And inevitably, whether we feel it or not, this electricity can be interfered with by the outside microwave and radio wave EMF radiation that wireless technologies emit.

EXPERTS ON THE SUBJECT VOUCH FOR THE SCIENCE

Jeromy Johnson, a Ph.D. in Engineering and expert on EMF exposure, explained the science in his 2016 feature on TEDTalk in Berkeley.

“…what the science shows is that we are all affected [by EMF’s] on some level, whether we can feel it or not,” Johnson said. “And the reason is, is because essentially, our bodies are electric. Every cell in our bodies communicates using tiny electric signals.” 

“It’s how our nervous system operates,” Johnson continued in his talk. “So to think that we can put an exponential amount of microwave radiation into our environment and not feel effects is simply false.”

Dr. Jack Kruse, another health expert and proponent for the harms of EMF’s, added to the discussion in his 2013 article.

“…except for visible light and infrared EMF, we cannot perceive any of these energies without instruments designed to find them. The problem is our brain senses them all without sensation being perceived consciously,” Kruse wrote.

“Humans have altered their electromagnetic background more than any other aspect of their environment. It is estimated that in 2012, the radio waves that surround our planet today [are] 1 billion times the amount that naturally reaches us from our sun!”

COULD YOU BE EXPERIENCING EMF EFFECTS?

The science is out there, and experts agree: EMF’s are all around us, being created by many of our beloved devices. Whether a person is aware of them or not, in some way, they are still no doubt affecting the body on some level—and not in a good way.

But how can someone know if what they’re experiencing could be due to EMF exposure? Here are some of the most commonly reported symptoms:

Collected together, these are quite common symptoms that many people tend to experience, whether they are relatively healthy or unhealthy. While some of these could surely be connected to high amounts of EMF radiation on our planet, it is true that they could also be associated with other health problems.

Over the long-term, however, studies on EMF effects have uncovered even more worrisome health impacts: including a higher incidence of DNA or free radical damage, reproductive damage and infertility, and an increased risk of developing cancer when overly exposed.

As such, while some of the symptoms above are common and often considered harmless (or connected to non-threatening health states), the unfortunate truth is that they could signal much, much larger health issues down the road.

Some effects and possible health problems noted in prominent studies:

  • Brain function and brain glucose production
  • Brain tumors
  • Breast and other cancer development
  • Cardiovascular problems
  • Childhood leukemia
  • Hypertension
  • Infertility
  • Poor sperm quality
  • Poor spatial memory

Some studies have even shown that in children and adolescents, effects from EMF radiation could be even more dire, having twice as much observed effect on the brain and body in the young than on adults!

Now more than ever, it’s important to protect our kids from the possible consequences of EMF from wi-fi, cell phones, and other devices: ultimately because they are more in danger of the effects than we are, and even more than we ever were with wireless technology exponentially on the rise.

WE’RE NOT POWERLESS – WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT

Living on a globe where wireless and cell phone technology will only likely keep on advancing—what can be done about the oncoming tide?

Fortunately, there are some very simple things everyone can do at home (or even at an office) to shield themselves from a lot of the effects of EMF’s. That is, hopefully, until more widespread research on EMF’s begins to be taken more seriously by authorities and technology companies alike—and when the effects are finally seen as what they are: a public health hazard.

TURN OFF WI-FI AT NIGHT

A good first step is to eliminate wi-fi during the times when it’s simply not being used at all. Night time is a prime time when the internet goes unused by most people, so the idea here is straightforward: turn off the wi-fi router at night before going to bed.

Some powered timers may be available that can shut off wi-fi at certain times automatically. If people find it too much of a chore to remember to manually shut off a router come dark, then opt for an electronic timer to sleep soundly—and without thinking twice about keeping wi-fi up and running overnight.

DON’T HAVE WI-FI AT ALL – GO FIBER OPTIC

Wi-fi may often be thought of as the most advanced internet access technology on the planet. And in some ways, it is.

After all, it is responsible for giving us the freedom of using cell phones, computers, and other devices just about anywhere, and without being tethered to wires. In the office or at home, however, it simply doesn’t make sense to have or to use wi-fi all the time. Some routers have the option to use ethernet cords—so use it!

But remember, just plugging an ethernet cord into the router doesn’t deactivate the wi-fi function. You still have to go into the router settings and shut off the wi-fi manually. Otherwise, it will still be flooding the house with pulses of the wi-fi microwave radiation. And that doesn’t stop the laptop or computer, if they have wi-fi cards, from pulsing to try to connect to a wi-fi source. To stop those from pulsing you must go in and manually disable the wi-fi card in the settings.

What more, fiber optic internet access (essentially a cord-based access) is quickly replacing wi-fi as the fastest and most efficient connection. So regardless, in time fiber optic may replace wi-fi altogether.

But don’t wait—talk to your internet provider about how to get the benefits from fiber optic internet today.

KEEP DEVICES AT A DISTANCE

If there’s a device that must absolutely be used to get on the internet, work, communicate, transmit files, or—most commonly—to make calls or receive texts, it’s a wise tip to simply keep smart phones or other devices far away from the body as much as possible.

When making or taking a call, use the speaker phone option. Otherwise, opt for a headset, though make sure it is not a Bluetooth headset. These still require an EMF wave to work, so favor a corded headset instead. Cause having a wireless headset microwave the brain is anything but good.

On the other hand, if and when people are carrying a phone in their pocket or close to their body (especially when it’s a must), make the mental effort to remember to place it in airplane mode. This is something recommended in every phones owners manual. Both of these above tips are especially important for children to learn at a young age, particularly before the age of 10 if they can.

But generally speaking, use of cell phones by children should be discouraged completely. Many studies on EMF exposure shows that it has much higher impacts on the young and adolescents than adults.

KEEP WIRELESS DEVICES OFF AND AWAY FROM SLEEPING SPACES

If sleep disturbances and insomnia are what plague a person the worst, then they should make the extra effort to keep wireless devices out of the bedroom before sleep, in addition to switching off wi-fi. This includes smart phones, tablets, laptops, and even televisions, regardless of whether they are connected and in use or not.

It comes as a surprise to some how much better sleep improves after the removal of these electronics. In addition to the health benefits that shutting off devices brings, complete removal of these gadgets before getting some sleep can have bountiful long-term benefits.

SPREAD THE WORD – PUSH FOR BETTER-DESIGNED PRODUCTS

Sure, the above tips will certainly help in the short term. But what can people do in the long term to do their part in helping this issue with unhealthy EMF exposure go away altogether?

One thing we all can do: spread the word. Tell friends and family, and show them the research.

As of now, the dangers of EMF’s (and the studies that prove them to exist) are under enormous pressure and opposition by major communications companies that depend on the technology to make a profit. Some companies even fund studies to disprove that EMF’s are a health problem in the first place!

But if enough of the public knows about the health dangers, this could tip the scales and force companies to take action in compliance with public health safety.

In a brighter and more hopeful future, this could involve the push for production of better electronics and designs that will be safer, causing less disastrous negative health effects.

So in addition to these smart tips, don’t be shy—spread the word and tell those you care about it.
