Are Radio Frequencies Harmful To Your Health?

What are Radio Frequencies?

Radio Frequencies (RF) are a type of non-ionizing radiation that exist within the wider spectrum of Electromagnetic Frequencies (EMF).

What Causes RF Radiation?

These frequencies are caused by the flow of wireless data through the air from one location to another. Some examples of these causes or sources are:

  • Cell towers
  • Cell phones
  • Wi-Fi
  • Wireless entertainment
  • Bluetooth
  • Smart meters

Is RF Harmful To Human Health?

Usually industry-funded studies conclude that the RF form of EMF radiation is not harmful. But the industries funding these studies, such as the Telecom companies, have a vested interest in the outcome. So can these studies be trusted, if they want the data to look good? Many government studies also conclude that there are no harmful effects. But how trustworthy are those governments?

The best way to determine if RF radiation is harmful is to look for research by third parties. There are thousands of such studies that indicate there are grave health concerns with the type of radiation coming from cell, Wi-Fi, and similar wireless technologies. Please look at the following sources for the evidence:

Studies on the harmful effects of wireless RF radiation

  • Biointiative.org is a major study on RF radiation by some of the foremost scientists in the field. This RF Color Chart shows that even super low levels of RF causes changes in genes, problems with DNA, reduced sperm count, fatigue, depressive tendencies, sleeping disorders, and more.
  • Physicians For Safe Technology state that “widespread use of digital media and near constant exposure to wireless devices has caused increasing concern among scientists, health care professionals, psychologists, educators and the public who are now considering this is not only a public health issue but a looming public health crisis.“
  • Canadians For Safe Technology founded by the former head of Microsoft Canada, has significant resources and links. The organization calls out Canada’s Safety Code 6 as not having had any major revisions in the last 30 years!
  • Americans For Responsible Technology have access to more than 1,000 scientific studies conducted by independent researchers. Studies show effects on fetal and newborn development, brain tumours, gland tumours, other malignancies, neurological/cognitive effects, and effects on implanted medical devices.
  • The Building Biology Institute is perhaps the most respected third party EMF research organization. Their significant research shows that RF levels of 0.001 uW/cm2 and above produce radiation of “severe” to “extreme” concern. These exposure levels are far lower than the Canadian government’s safety guidelines allowing for much higher levels.
  • Dr. Joseph Mercola has written a major book on the health effects of EMFs. It’s a sobering work, and an effective call to action for those who wish to stay informed. Dr. Mercola carefully lays out the history and evidence for the deleterious effects of EMF exposure and provides concrete steps on how to mitigate the damage being done. Dr. Mercola also has a wealth of information on Mercola.com, the number one natural health website. His dedication to the truth in health rather than the narrative pushed by big pharma and big telco’s helps open new doors to health information.

Conclusion

Always on” wireless waves in your living and sleeping environment are harmful. Your key to health is to always use wired access to Internet based services.

Don’t you owe it to yourself to gather the knowledge presented in these links to draw your own conclusions on the health effects of EMF RF radiation?

The hidden factors that contribute to Autism. Learn the facts and how to reduce the likelihood in your children.

Studies: Environment toxins can cause Autism

Leading health authority, Dr. Joe Mercola, writes, “Three decades ago, when I was still in medical school, autism affected one in 10,000 children. What changed between then and now to cause one in 50 children to become autistic?”

Research is pointing to “excessive exposure to toxins from multiple sources…” One study by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) found an average of 287 toxins in newborn blood. Of these, 180 are known to cause cancer in humans or animals. 217 are toxic to the brain and nervous system.

“Autism appears to be strongly correlated,” and “this gives an indicator of environment load,” as Dr. Mercola quotes a University of Chicago study by Andrey Rzhetsky, Ph.D., professor of genetic medicine and human genetics. Another report from the Harvard School of Public Health and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai identified common chemicals known to disrupt brain development and cause brain damage. The authors call for the implementation of urgent preventive strategies.

Other Environmental Factors That Likely Contribute to Autism

“Besides overexposure to the environmental toxins already mentioned,” writes Mercola, “I believe there’s a variety of other important factors that also contribute to the rise in autism spectrum disorder, including but not limited to the following:

  • Gut dysbiosis, especially in combination with vaccines and their additives like mercury (thimerosal), aluminum, and others, which are known to damage your mitochondria—the powerhouses in your body’s cells that produce energy. Your gastrointestinal system is often referred to as your “second brain…”
  • Vitamin D deficiency. The link between vitamin D deficiency in pregnant women and the proportionate jump in autism has been highlighted by Dr. John Cannell. Vitamin D receptors appear in a wide variety of brain tissue early in the fetal development, and activated vitamin D receptors increase nerve growth in your brain. I believe vitamin D deficiency during pregnancy is a MAJOR contributing factor to autism…
  • Electromagnetic radiation (EMR / EMF) from cell phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi devices, which can trap heavy metals inside of nerve cells, accelerate heavy metal toxicity, and hinder natural detoxification processes.
  • Microbial toxins, such as mold. Children with autism not only have overwhelmed detoxification pathways and often heavy metal toxicity, but, according to Dr. Klinghardt, their bodies are also frequently beset by toxic microbes.

How to limit your chemical exposure and improve your resistance

In addition to eating more organic and biodynamic foods in general and consuming foods known for their preventive properties (as described by Dr. Mercola here), be sure to limit your exposure to harmful electromagnetic frequencies (EMF).

Ten tips to reduce your EMF exposure:

      1. Electrical equipment and electronics: Increase your distance from power cords, electrical equipment and electronic devices. 1 meter distance is best. Don’t forget the distance of your feet from power bars. Sit back from your computer.
      2. WiFi: Use ethernet as much as possible instead of wireless. Turn off WiFi when not in use. You can either unplug it or simply access the wireless router’s console from your browser to turn it off (and on when needed). Did you know your Macbook Air can be fitted with an Ethernet Adapter? (about $20)
      3. Cell Phones: Come up with a “cell phone off strategy” that works for your personal lifestyle. Even if you decide to have your phone in airplane mode 50% of the time, that’s 50% better. Make sure WiFi is off as well. Text instead of talk. Use the speaker phone when talking. Some headphones reduce electromagnetic radiation, but you’ll need to test them with an EMF meter. Don’t hold the phone to your head. Don’t keep the phone on your belt or in in a pocket.
      4. Cordless Phones: Throw them away. Replace with corded landlines. The new DECT phones emit high levels of constant microwave radiation, even when not being used.
      5. Home or Office Wiring: There is high frequency pollution in your electrical wiring. It needs to be dramatically reduced. The best way to do this is to have STETZERiSER filters installed in your home (an average of 2 per room). We can do this for you. Note: do not sleep or work near your building’s electrical panel. Keep at least 3 meters away.
      6. Smart Meters: Ask your utility to have your wireless smart meter wired or replaced with a wired model. Don’t sleep in a room near the location of the smart meter.
      7. Bedroom Sleeping Practices: Make sure sleeping quarters are EMF-clean. Follow the steps above that relate to electrical and electronic equipment, WiFi, phones, etc. And be sure to move your clock radio at least 1 meter from your head, and preferably across the room. Don’t use wireless Baby Monitors. Replace your metal lamp with wood or ceramic or unplug the lamp and move it away from your body. Consider turning off the power to your bedroom at the electrical panel for a better night’s sleep. More on how to get a good night’s sleep.
      8. Workspace Practices: Follow the applicable tips above and work with fluorescent tube lighting turned off. Remove CFL (compact fluorescent bulbs) from your workspace. Use LED lights (the type that don’t use transformers) incandescent light bulbs where possible. Suggestion: Have one of our EMF technicians come to your workplace (or home) and test the EMF levels. You won’t know until you have the electrical, magnetic and high frequency readings measured and interpreted for you. You should have values less than 1 milliGauss for magnetic fields;  5 V/m for power frequency electric fields; 40 – 50 GS units for dirty electricity; 0.01 microW/cm2 for wireless radiation; 0.5 V for ground current at 60 Hz; and 10 mV for kHz ground current.
      9. Consider Shielding: There are a lot of EMF mitigation techniques available, but some sources of harmful electromagnetic radiation simply can’t be avoided or removed. That’s where shielding comes in. We’ll help you select the best shielding options.
      10. Power Lines: What is a safe distance from power lines? Have us come and measure the magnetic and electrical readings from the power lines near your home or office. In research carried out at Oxford University, it was discovered that children who had lived within 200 m of high voltage lines at birth had a 70% higher risk of leukaemia than those 600 m or more away.  More about power lines here.

A General Health Tip: Keep fit and eat well. Exercise, get fresh air, eat fresh organic foods, take plant-based supplements because most of us don’t get enough nutrients for optimal health in our modern diet. And learn to have a relaxed attitude. You’ll live a healthier life and your body will be better equipped to cope with EMF exposure!

* GS filters are tuned capacitors that reduce high frequency voltages (transients) on electrical wires. They protect sensitive electronic equipment. Studies show they also reduce symptoms of electro-hypersensitivity. GS filters should be installed with proper monitoring (microsurge meter) to ensure levels are sufficiently low for maximum benefit.

Professional EMF Inspections

Concerned about EMF?

You are wise to look into this hot topic and to seek professional advice on how to reduce EMF exposure.

I am an EMF inspector providing testing services in St Catharines and surrounding area in the Niagara Peninsula, including Grimsby, Stoney Creek, etc. My experience and background includes hundreds of inspections all over Ontario and the U.S. and hundreds of hours of research and professional development.

About our equipment and methodologies.

I use 4 to 6 different professional EMF meters to measure EMFs. I will give you a verbal summary of findings and recommendations on the spot. Shortly after, I provide the results of the survey in a written report. It will show the location and intensity of EMFs within the property and gives detailed practical steps on how they can be eliminated or avoided at minimal, or no cost.

One of the solutions I might recommend is the installation of Graham-Stetzer or Greenwave dirty electricity filters. They filter out much of the dangerous high frequency energy. We’re getting reports of health changing results from our clients. Note, it is entirely up to you whether to deploy the filter or not.

All in all, my team and I take a serious yet practical approach. We understand the need for balance in our approach to modern society’s ever increasing use of technologies that potentially encroach upon our health. Balance. Yet being serious about reducing our risks.

Residential or Commercial EMF Testing

Our methodology for residential customers is to use our EMF meters to measure your home or workplace top to bottom with particular focus on the sleeping areas and areas you spend a lot of time in. We work alongside you during the EMF scan and ask permission before scanning begins.

We test for harmful effects from:

  • high voltage power lines
  • proximity to cell phone towers
  • transformers
  • household wiring and poor grounding
  • appliances
  • lamps and clock radios
  • lighting
  • household wiring
  • dirty electricity
  • stray currents on gas and water pipes
  • cordless phones
  • Wi-Fi
  • cellular phones
  • dimmer switches
  • computers
  • home entertainment systems & TV

The Equipment We Use:

We have professional grade meters for MAGNETIC and ELECTRIC Fields, and others for high frequency RF. We’ve steadily upgraded our meters over the years, spending thousands of dollars in the process. Geovital Field Probes are our most important meters, as they measure how your body reacts to the EMFs in your environment, something that regular meters can’t do.

For DIRTY ELECTRICITY, we use Greenwave’s Broadband EMI Meter, which is highly advanced. This meter is designed to separate the power line frequency to detect and respond to low level high frequency voltages caused by transients and harmonics on power lines.

An important part of the onsite visit is to give you a brief overview of EMF and help you understand how your readings compare against the most trusted safety guidelines. A full written report is also provided.
