Solid Protection from EMF Exposure
Posted on March 25, 2015
I recently heard a discussion on EMF exposure and the increased risk of damage to children. Although we cannot easily escape the fields of technology, there are some safety precautions that should be wisely considered. In fairly recent years, interesting scientific studies have revealed new data that should capture our attention. Below is commentary on one important study for all of us, of any age.
***Read my update below to hear our family’s personal experience with detecting and protection from EMF exposure.
“Adamantia F. Fragopoulou, M.Sc., PhD Candidate, in the Dept of Cell Biology and Biophysics at University of Athens, Greece, lead author of the study, says, “Our study is important because it shows for the first time protein changes in the mouse brain after EMF exposure and in particular in very crucial regions like hippocampus, cerebellum and frontal lobe, all involved in learning, memory and other complicated functions of the mammalian brain. We have demonstrated that 143 proteins are altered after electromagnetic radiation, including proteins that have been correlated so far with Alzheimer’s, glioblastoma, stress and metabolism. In its perspective, this study is anticipated to throw light in the understanding of such health effects like headaches, dizziness, sleep disorders, memory disorders, brain tumors, all of them related, to the function of the altered brain proteins.”
Oher studies from around the world confirm these concerns. An article from www.electromagnetichealth.org states this regarding a study with children and EMF exposure:
“A Russian team of researchers also has recently released a study published in Radiation Biology, Radiation Ecology 2011. Volume 51, No.5, p 611-623 showing significant long-term (4 years) cognitive decline in children (ages 7-12) in users of mobile devices compared to controls, once again demonstrating exposure guidelines are inadequate. Lead author of the study, Professor Yury Grigoriev, Chairman of Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection and a member of the WHO’s International Advisory Committee on “EMF and Health”, says,
‘Our recent 4-year monitoring of effects from cell phone radiation on children, published in Radiation Biology. Radiation Ecology (Volume 51, No.5, 2011), demonstrates an increase in phonemic perception disorders (speech), abatement of efficiency, reduced indicators for the arbitrary and semantic memory and increased fatigue. Over the four-year monitoring of 196 children ages 7-12 who were users of mobile communication devices, a steady decline in these parameters from high values to bottom standards compared to controls, was observed. The short-term and long-term potential consequences for society from exposing children to microwave radiation from cellular communication devices must be immediately acknowledged, globally, and responsibly addressed.’ ”
These international studies, as well as many others, clearly show us that the EMFs generated from mobile devices, like cell phones and computers , and even including wireless home phones, can do some serious damage to our intracellular communication and alteration of human cell proteins. My husband, who is an electrical engineer, has pretty thoroughly check out this EMF Meter and thinks it is a good one, so this is what we have purchased to measure the radation in different areas on our home, especially sleeping areas. I learned recently that you are more susceptible to EMFs when your your body is in the parasympathetic mode, as while sleeping.
Besides limiting exposure to these electronic devices, what can be done? I am offering one solution because I believe it to be a very good one, even third-party tested, which I understand is very unusual with products that make claims about reducing the damaging effects of EMF radiation. This is a product that our family feels warrants the investment. I heard the creator of this device speak on an online summit last year, and I was very impressed with his knowledge and integrity. I’m glad to know that such a product is available for those who care to take precautions and who want to minimize the risk of EMF damage to computer users.
Meet The Defender EMF Radiation and Heat Shield on Amazon. Consider protecting your children and other family members with this rigorously tested device. The risk is too great, in my opinion, to leave it for time to tell the health consequences to our families of these new radiation exposures in our everyday world.
***UPDATE: Personal Experience with EMFs. We purchased the EMF Detector above, and as soon as it came in the mail, my kids opened it and walked into the room where I was still sleeping. The meter read OFF THE CHARTS! Imagine my surprise and concern. What we discovered is that our wiring was installed wrong. Anywhere there were dual light switches, those areas in the home were not grounded and were exposing us to loads of EMFs on a daily basis. This translates into health concerns and inflammation in the body, not to mention other possibilities due to scrambled electronic signals in our bodies. The heart runs on electrical impulses, we know. I am SO glad we discovered this! It affected our kitchen (where I spend most of my time), my bedroom (where I obviously spend a lot of time), and the hallway that connects the two. That’s quite a large space in our home that was not really safe to occupy. Thankfully, my husband is an electrical engineer and was able to rewire those rooms in time. We have been living in this home for almost 20 years and never would have know how unsafe it was, if it hadn’t been for the EMF meter.
We also all purchased laptap EMF shields. The one above was highly researched and is third-party certified, which many are not. I feel much safer with the kids using these shields. You know where that radiation is going when a computer is sitting on a laptop. Studies are already showing hormonal changes from this type of use.
Another wonderful safety tip, that I haven’t been able to talk my husband into yet, is to turn your WIFI off at night. It’s really a wonderful plan to minimize your exposure.
Another free tip is this. Avoid having sleeping areas or living spaces near your electric meter; chances are it is a Smart Meter. They emit constant EMFs at a pretty high rate, from what I understand. Many people have asked that they be removed, and this can be done. The electric company many choose to charge you for it, though, but be persistent, if you need them to do this for the health of your family.
