Can cell phone radiation be the new smoking?
Let’s look at the facts and you tell me…
Cell phones go through rigorous and cutting edge safety testing.
Safety guidelines were last updated in 1996.
There’s no link between cell phone use and cancer.
Wireless radiation is a class 2B “possible carcinogen, but leading scientists argue it should be reclassified as a class 1 “definite” carcinogen next to tobacco and asbestos.
You will be safe as long as you reduce your cell phone use.
Wi-Fi networks, Bluetooth devices, “smart” utility meters and cell phone towers all expose you to levels of EMF radiation a quintillion times higher than what our ancestors were ever exposed to.
What is “electrosmog” and what does it have to do with EMFs?
Electrosmog is electromagnetic pollution. The levels of electrosmog are currently increasing dramatically because of EMF emitting technology such as wifi, small cell antennas, satellites, cell phone antennas, smart appliances, and wearables. We are being inundated by this pollutant! When it comes to health guidelines, we have good guidelines for ionizing radiation, but poor to non-existent guidelines for non-ionizing radiation, which is the range that EMFs fall in. The physical effects were determined by the breaks in chemical bonds in ionizing radiation, thermal effects at microwaves, and shock at lowered frequencies. In reality, once we turn from physics to biochemistry, we would realize that there is a huge amount of free radical damage and oxidative stress with lower AND higher frequencies. Please see the chart below:
How can this lead to illness?
According to a study conducted in 2015 by Igor Yakymenko and his team at the institute of Experimental Pathology, Oncology, and Radiobiology of NAS of Ukraine, 93 out of 100 studies conducted confirmed low intensity radio frequencies induce oxidative effects in biological systems. It is known that oxidative stress can lead to cancer and both ionizing and nonionizing radiation have been known to contribute to cancer. Electrosmog can trigger cancer, reproductive problems, and ElectroHyperSensitivity. It can also cause physiological stress in the body. In a study that observed the symptoms experienced by people in the vicinity of a cellular base station, a significantly high percentage of people living in close vicinity to a cellphone tower reported experiencing symptoms of fatigue, sleep disturbances, and difficulty concentrating compared to the population of people who were living farther away from the cell phone tower.
< 1 % of the population are so significantly affected by EMFs that they are not able to work,
1.5% of people are severely affected that they would not be able to live in a big city,
5 % have moderate symptoms, and
30% have mild symptoms.
The rest of the population is asymptomatic which does not mean that they are not experiencing any oxidative damage to their cells.
Non-ionizing radiation contributes to neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s, dementia, and ASD. This can be seen by the dramatic increase of neurological deaths in the U.S. from 1989 to 2010 for men and women in their 50s to 70s and those older than 70.
Are there any precursors to ElectroHyperSensitivity?
Common precursors for ElectroHyperSensitivity are physical trauma to the nervous system, chemical exposure, electrical exposure, biological trauma like Lyme disease or parasites or, recent addition, COVID virus, and an impaired immune system.
How are we exposed to EMF radiation?
We are being exposed to EMF from many different devices:
- cell phone
- cell phone tower
- cordless phones
- Bluetooth headset
- any Bluetooth device
- WI-FI router
- baby monitors
15 SIMPLE WAYS TO REDUCE YOUR EMF EXPOSURE
Eliminate the use of the microwave
It is easy to get rid of this typical kitchen device and use more healthy ways not only for your food’s nutrition, but for your personal and family’s health. Use a convection oven or re-heat on the stove, or eat more raw and live foods.
Turn off all devices at night
Connect your WI-FI to a switch so you can turn it off at night and when you do not need it during the day. This helps to lower the exposure in your home environment and get a better night’s sleep.
Change your cell phone settings to airplane mode.
If you use your phone as an alarm clock it is best to turn off the wireless signal, so it is not being emitted all night long close to your brain. Also, when walking or carrying your phone on you, if you do not need it, just put it on airplane mode.
Keep all wireless devices out of the kitchen and bedroom.
These areas in the house are where you likely spend most of your time, so it is best to avoid placing many wireless devices in these rooms.
Keep your phone away from your body.
Try to identify times in your day when you do not need your phone on you or near you. For example, when having a meal with someone, spending time in nature, walking the dog, or when you are working on your computer.
Text more, talk less.
Texting keeps the radiation away from your head and less radiation is emitted from the phone as compared to calling. If you do need to speak on the phone, use speaker mode instead.
Call when the signal is strong
Make and receive calls when the signal is strong because research shows that radiation exposure dramatically increases when cell phone signals are weak.
Skip the ‘radiation shield’
Radiation shields such as antenna caps and keypad covers reduce the connection quality which causes the phone to transmit with greater energy, thus emitting more radiation.
Avoid the use of Bluetooth devices
When you are using any kind of Bluetooth device that is on your body, including an Apple watch, FitBit, wireless headphones, etc… you are exposing your brain, eyes, ears, and many other organs to EMF radiation.
Talk on your wireless device using speakerphone.
It is best when talking to not be holding your phone up to your head, have it placed at least 3 feet away to decrease your exposure.
Eat these spices and take a magnesium supplement
Spices rich in phenolics, including cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, cloves, and rosemary are shown in research to help protect as well as repair damage from EMF due to their protective capacity against peroxynitrites, which is formed naturally in the body by the interaction of nitric oxide and superoxide radicals. These superoxide radicals form due to EMF exposure.
Walk on the earth barefoot as much as you can to receive the benefits of the Earth’s negative charge. You can find out more by visiting: https://earthinginstitute.net/research/
Use Rosemary and/or Lavender essential oilsOn your feet has been shown to be beneficial for EMF protection
SwimmingIn ocean water can offset the effects of EMF exposure and help ground the body as discussed before.
Sleep in a silver EMF shielding tentFor those who are are particularly sensitive to EMFs and feel that EMF exposure is preventing you from healing, consider trying a shielding tent like this one to sleep in at night: https://www.mercolamarket.com/product/2806/1/silvershield-emf-shielding-tent
