Quick reference guide to the topic of EMF and how to protect yourself from harmful exposure. Includes my interview on TV today

I was interviewed by Tampa Florida TV station WFLA today.

The full Skype session covered all the following topics but most useful content was cut out for the broadcast due to time constraints:

  • Are we being exposed to harmful EMF radiation in our homes and workplace?
  • How can I determine if my home has high EMF?
  • What does an EMF inspection involve?
  • What are some of the causes of EMF?
  • How can I reduce EMF in my home?
  • Helpful links

I was happy to be an all-too-brief part of TV COVERAGE of the ongoing interest in what EMF exposure is doing to us.

The Radiation Research Trust (RRT) are leading supporters of the precautionary approach to Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) and as such advocate release of substantial research funds from Government and Industry while offering immediate protection and advice to the public. Scientists presenting at the RRT conference reported there are indeed problems and that children are at risk:

“The potential risk to children’s health is very high and a completely new problem. Use of mobile phones for those under 18 or pregnant should be restricted. Children have a unique vulnerability as they grow and develop; there are ‘windows of susceptibility’ periods when their organs and systems may be particularly sensitive to the effect of certain environmental threats. The existing standards cannot guarantee the safe, healthy development of the next generation.”
Professor Yury Grigoriev, Chairman of Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection

The following scientific presentation describes a number of additional findings and recommendations from such international sources as;

  • Russian Ministry of Health
  • UK Government Department of Health
  • Israeli Health Ministry
  • French and Finnish governments, and more …

Dr. Mercola has information for you about harmful EMF radiation

Dr. Mercola on Electro Magnetic Fields (EMF) and which of them can be hazardous to our health.Dr. Mercola on EMF. A worthwhile read. (Abridged)

Do electromagnetic fields (EMF) from power lines, home wiring, computers and appliances cause anything from brain tumours and leukemia, to cancer & other health problems?

A growing list of experts are convinced that the threat is real.

  • Dr. David Carpenter, Dean at the School of Public Health, State University of New York: “up to 30% of all childhood cancers come from exposure to EMFs.”
  • The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA): “There is reason for concern,” advising “prudent avoidance”. 
  • Martin Halper, EPA Director of Analysis and Support: “I have never seen a set of epidemiological studies that remotely approached the weight of evidence that we’re seeing with EMFs. Clearly there is something here.”
  • Paul Brodeur in the New Yorker Magazine, June 1989, and Time Magazine 1990: these articles had a catalytic effect on scientists, reporters and concerned people throughout the world.
  • US Department of Energy (November 1989): “It has now become generally accepted that there are, indeed, biological effects due to field exposure.”

Concerns about our Homes

In addition to the long-term health concerns, buying a house with high fields will be an economic disaster. In a few years, when power line radiation is as well known as asbestos and radon, a house with high fields will be practically impossible to sell. Already there are hundreds of lawsuits regarding EMFs and property devaluation.

Power Lines

All power lines radiate electromagnetic fields. The question is: how much are the power lines near YOUR home radiating? Editor’s NOTE: our own measurements of high voltage power lines and then comparing them to safety charts have revealed facts we’d like to share with you.   Email Us.

Transformers

A key component of a utility’s electrical distribution network depends upon numerous, small transformers mounted on power poles. A transformer looks like a small metal trash can, usually cylindrical… Many people don’t realize that when they see a transformer, the power line feeding the transformer is 4000 to 13,800 volts.

The transformer then reduces the voltage to the 120/240 volts needed by nearby homes. Since these transformers can be seen in almost every neighborhood, they are a source of concern.

Home Wiring

If your home has high EMF readings, it is important to determine the sources of the EMF so that remedial action can be taken …

Computers

The Swedish safety standard, effective 711/90, specifies a maximum of 0.25 mG at 50 cm from the display. Many US manufactured computers have EMFs of 5 – 100 mG at this distance. And know this too: the screens placed over monitors do NOT block EMFs. Not even a lead screen will block ELF and VLF magnetic fields.

Electric Clocks

Electric clocks have a very high magnetic field, as much as 5 to 10 mG up to three feet away…

Fluorescent Lights

Fluorescent lights produce much more EMFs than incandescent bulbs…

Microwave Ovens and Radar

Microwave ovens and radar from military installations and airports emit two types of radiation — microwave and ELF. Microwaves are measured in milliwatt per centimeter squared (mW/cm2) As of 1/1/93, the U.S. safety limit for microwave exposure is 1 mW/cm2, down from a previous 10 mW/cm2. The Russian safety limit is .01 mW/cm2. All microwave ovens leak and exceed the Russian safety limit. In addition, recent Russian studies have shown that normal microwave cooking coverts food protein molecules into carcinogenic substances.

When measuring microwaves from military and airport radar sources, 100% accurate readings can only be found with extremely expensive digital peak-hold meters…

Telephones and Answering Machines

Telephones can emit surprisingly strong EMFs, especially from the handset. This is a problem because we hold the telephone so close to our head. Measure the EMF’s from the ear piece and the mouth piece before buying a phone.

Some brands emit no measurable fields and others emit strong fields that travel several inches….right into your brain. Answering machines, particular those with adapter plugs (mini-transformers), give off high levels of EMFs.

Electric Razors and Hair Dryers

Electric razors and hair dryers emit EMFs as high as 200 to 400 mG…

Prudent Avoidance

Electricity is an inseparable part of our modern day society. This means that EMFs will continue to be all around us. But as Discover Magazine postulated, aside from making our life easier, is electricity also making our lives shorter?

Most experts agree that limited, non-chronic exposure to EMFs is not a threat. For example, it is probably acceptable for a person to be near a toaster in the morning.

BUT, it is not advisable for a person to sleep under an electric blanket, up close, live near a powerline/substation, and sleep in a room where the power enters the home. This person is under an extreme case of chronic exposure. This condition, unfortunately, applies to millions of Americans.

If you wish to follow the EPA’s advice and practice “prudent avoidance” then this advice is offered:

  • Measure your home, work and school environments
  • Don’t let your children play near power lines, transformers, radar domes and microwave towers.
  • Avoid areas where the field is above 1 mG. Measure the EMFs from appliances both when they are operating and when they are turned off. Some appliances (like TVs) are still drawing current even when they are off.
  • Don’t sleep under an electric blanket or on a waterbed. If you insist on using these, unplug them before going to bed (don’t just turn it off). Even though there is no magnetic field when they are turned off, there may still be a high electric field.
  • Don’t sit too close to your TV set. Distance yourself at least 6 feet away. Use a Gauss meter to help you decide where it is safe to sit.
  • Rearrange your office and home area so that you are not exposed to EMFs from the sides/backs of electric appliances and computers. In the home, it is best that all major electrical appliances, such as computers, TVs, refrigerators etc, be placed up against outside walls. That way you are not creating an EMF field in the adjoining room.
  • Don’t sit too close to your computer. Computer monitors vary greatly in the strength of their EMFs, so you should check yours with a meter. Don’t stand close to your microwave oven. Move all electrical appliances at least 6 feet from your bed. Eliminate wires running under your bed. Eliminate dimmers and 3-way switches.
  • Be wary of cordless appliances such as electric toothbrushes and razors. You may choose not to wear a quartz-analog watch because it radiates pulsating EMFs along your acupuncture meridians.
  • An older mechanical windup watch would be an acceptable alternative. It is also recommended to wear as little jewelry as possible and to take it off at night. Many people have metal sensitivity which can be aggravated by placing it right on the skin. Measure with a gauss meter to be sure.

And last, but not least, always always always remember that EMFs pass right through walls. The EMF you are reading on your Gauss meter could be radiating from the next room…or from outside your home.

Additional Radiation Info:

Eyeglass frames should ideally be made from plastic with no wires in them, otherwise they can serve as an antenna to focus the radio and cellular phone waves directly into your brain.

What EMF Level Is Safe?

There’s a heated debate as to what electromagnetic field (EMF) level is considered safe. Since the experts have not come to an consensus, you’ll have to decide for yourself… Many government and utility documents report the usual ambient level of 60-Hz magnetic field to be 0.5 mG.

Thus, any reading higher than 0.5 mG is above the “usual” ambient exposure. Many experts and public officials, as well as the few governments that have made an effort to offer public protection, have adopted the 3 mG cutoff point. The EPA has proposed a safety standard of 1 mG. Sweden has set a maximum safety limit of 1 mG.

Dr. Robert Becker, an MD who has been studying the effects of EMFs for 20 years, states a lmG safety limit in his book Cross Currents. When electricians try to solve a magnetic field problem they do their best to drop the level to 1 mG or below.

Dr. Nancy Wertheimer, a Ph.D. epidemiologist who has been studying EMFs for 20 years, has been looking at the epidemiological data in a different way — she is trying to associate EMF levels with health rather than disease. The level she is coming up with is a cut off of 1 mG. Russian researchers claim that 1/1000ths of a mG should be the standard.

The BioElectric Body believes that there are several stages of health between “optimum wellness”, “degenerative disease” and “Cancer”. Thus, we maintain our own living and sleeping quarters at 0.5mG and below.

Dr. Mercola recommends measuring EMFs in the home. Did you know that we can measure them for you for less than 1/4 the cost of the meters needed to do the job, and guide you through the process of reducing your health risks?

We conduct EMF home inspections in Toronto, GTA, Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville, Missauga.

Cell phone waves found to disorient honeybees

Honey bee
Honey bee
Q: I saw an article that said cell phones are a cause of colony collapse disorder in honeybees. That is hard to believe. Do you have any information on that?
A: It is my contention that the main cause of colony collapse disorder in honeybees is from pesticides. Another reason for the population decline in honeybees is believed to be electromagnetic radiation that is emitted from cell phones and wireless towers. According to an article published in the Times of India, a study in Kerala found that cell phone towers caused a rapid decline in their honeybee population and that they could cause a complete collapse of the bee population in 10 years. Dr. Sainuddin Pattazhy, who conducted the study, concluded that the electromagnetic waves from the towers shorted out the navigational abilities of the worker bees so they couldn’t find their way back to their hive after collecting pollen.
A study conducted at Landau University in Germany showed that when cell phones were placed near hives, the bees wouldn’t return to them. Scientists believe the radiation generated by the cell phones was enough to interfere with the bees’ communication system, which are movement patterns, with their hives.
I doubted the contention that cell phones were detrimental to bees when I first heard it. But studies have shown that the electromagnetic fields have an impact on other species as well, including migratory birds that lose their orientation in the radiation.
If the electromagnetic radiation can affect birds, then there is no doubt in my mind it can affect insects as well, including honeybees. We also need to be concerned about our own species. At one time we were convinced that cigarette smoking was harmless. We were wrong with cigarettes, and we need to look carefully at electromagnetic radiation.

Studies show EMF electromagnetic fields are harmful to human health, from an interview with Dr Thomas M. Rau of the Paracelsus Clinic, Switzerland

Thomas M. Rau is the medical director of the Paracelsus clinic in Switzerland. It is well known for understanding the root causes of disease and patient health.

Dr. Thomas Rau

The following interview makes extremely interesting and important reading!

This brief read expresses the concern Dr Rau has over the proliferation of cell phone towers. They can interfere with patients’ biology and particularly the unconscious (sympathetic/parasympathetic) nerve system. These functions can be severely compromised by radiation from cell towers.

For info on how to protect yourself from EMF radiation or for an EMF home inspection, call Paul Singer at 905-719-7030 or email me.

The Paracelsus clinic sees 3,000 EHS patients out of the 10,000 patients they see annually and has a wealth of information to share with us so that we can better understand and protect ourselves from harmful EMF radiation.

The following interview transcript discusses the effects of dental fillings and other metal in the body, cell tower dangers, thoughts on autism, and goes into a variety of helpful information on EHS (electromagnetic hypersensitivity) and EMR (electromagnetic radiation).

People with heavy metal loads in the body tend to suffer much more from electromagnetic radiation as compared to those who do not. The heavy metals might well be absorbing the EMR: root canals, amalgam fillings, implants, etc. can be the problem.

A large, solid 35 year old man became sick with trigeminal neuralgia. Many diagnoses saw it as “idiopathic”, meaning they didn’t know and he had to live with it. He even became suicidal. The Paracelsus clinic saw that he had a root canal and amalgam filling. He did have the filling for 20 years before an antenna tower was installed near his home. He removed the amalgam filling and moved and had total remission from the sickness.

There is a village in Switzerland where they built a tower. They asked about diseases in two villages prior to the transmission–the one which has the tower, and another comparable village but with no tower. They asked about the diseases in the two cities after 1 and 2 years after transmission started. They found a very significant difference of problems in the town with the tower installed. Symptoms seen: Children’s concentration problems, ADD, heart problems, significant increase in arrhythmia, significant increase in problems with the behaviours of school children.

Symptoms of EHS include headaches, deficiency of concentration, back pains from cervical and lower spine (tension of muscles becomes more spastic and continuous pressure/tension exacerbates the problems).

With migraine presenting, my first test is for “electromagnetic cloud”. We work together with an institute that measures the cloud, then they either isolate from the outside cloud or remove problems devices. The portable house phones (DECT) are very significant for their “electromagnetic clouds”. The patients get better.

Very frequently patients suffer sleeping disturbances. We have a tower in our private house which sends to the village. We insulated the house and walls, and we put our children out of the rooms which is directly exposed to the tower. On the day after changing they slept better. Before, our son fell out of bed nearly every night, and after, none of this behaviour.

We have a method, bioresonance, to measure scientifically the function of the unconscious, the parasympathetic and sympathetic nerve system. They should balance and yet they do not with EHS and electromagnetic cloud. This is like the Hartrite Variability. We have a more refined instrument but the same principle is used.

That was acute symptoms: what do we know about the connection between these invisible stressors and chronic conditions?

Our clinic treats a lot of patients with cancer patients in all stages. Since we know about the relationship, we now test them all for electromagnetic sensitivity. Nowadays I am really convinced that electromagnetic emissions/loads from different sources are a very important factor to the building of all cancers. What is very important is that the EMR load leads to a deficiency of the pituitary gland; sleeping disturbances for example; regulation of the thyroid and adrenal gland. The stress capacity decreases significantly and this is the major factor that makes patients weak when they have EMR exposure.

With all of our patients we have remediation from EMR. It is one of our trainings with cancer patients to avoid things like cordless phones in the house; they are even worse than mobile phones: television in the sleeping room and other things that contribute to EMR load.

Parkinson’s patients—we have several who profited a lot from our EMR advice. Alzheimer’s is difficult as it does not help so much even though EMR might be a factor of causation. Also mental problems, depression, anxiety, concentration deficiency, sleep disturbances –they profit very much from electromagnetic training.

What about Autism and EMR?

I doubt very much that many children are born with autism; they normally regress. At birth we can’t judge. They are vaccinated, and we think vaccination has a very bad effect for building autism. And combine that with the EMR and it blocks the brain activity, it loads the brain, and this is just ‘fatal’ to the child. It is very important that the autistic child keeps away from the electromagnetic cloud.

What degree of impairment happens in patients?

All facets are possible. Some patients are invalid, some are compromised. We ask patients when do they have symptoms? What is it like when you go on holidays? Do you use your mobile phone? Do you have tinnitus? Tinnitus is maybe 90% related to EMR.

How does EMR affect microorganisms?

We have more organisms than cells in our bodies. Cultures of normal human endogenous bacterial cultures grow much less when exposed to EMR. They grow less when they are around a mobile phone, a tower or cordless phone.

Growing less good bacteria in your body means you will have an overgrowth of bad bacteria that can result in things like Lyme’s disease. Especially from the east coast of the USA, we have many patients with Lymes. Antibiotics only make it worse. We look how the good flora responds and how they grow, recolonise. We have to reimplant the good bacteria. Within six weeks the Lyme’s patients get well or much better.

Toxic mould in homes grows much faster under the load of high electromagnetic loads. They grow much faster in a disturbed milieu. Mercury / heavy metals can also exacerbate the growth.

What is going on in Europe with EMR awareness?

Lichtenstein put the resolutions into law restricting EMR. An area in South France is creating a white zone for EMR.

Why? Is it worse there? In the USA we seem to be unaware.

In Europe, we have different radio stations and a multiplexity of opinions, and it is more difficult to wash one opinion away. France and Italy are very behind with EMR. They have the highest concentration of atomic power stations (France). The northern countries (Scandinavia) are very much advanced. For example in Sweden they have stricter laws on power stations, and amalgam is forbidden to be put in teeth. Things got much better lately, and good information proliferated as patient groups got much more activity, and with the actions of institutes such as our geopathological institute. Actions of advocates against EM clouds.

In the US there have been antennas put up on properties and people get money for it. Does that happen in Europe? It seems crazy to do it if it impairs concentration and learning.

It is criminal, unethical to expose children to EM clouds in this way. We know that power stations for EM waves like mobile phones are helping illness, so putting it in schools is very bad. The children’s IQ will decrease. Does the society really want to have intelligent well educated children or not? You will have more ADD children. You will have more reflection of this on the reduced ability to teach children, we will have more dull and dumb children. This is absolutely clearly my opinion that we will be dulled, dumbed, in the future from this EMR.

What about depression and emotional balance and the effect of EM fields. We have seen a skyrocketing of depression in the last 15 years.

There are many causes, I would not say EMR was specific but it is one of many causes. Many causes add up to the fatal effect. Wrong nutrition, toxins in the air, the water, the teeth toxins, the sugar, the wrong bacteria and on top of all of this, the horrible situation with the EM cloud.

Does it affect people’s ability to interact with each other?

With EMR the sympathetic action increases, the parasympathetic decrease. By increasing the former you get more animosity, more aggression, a less peaceful approach. This interferes with the whole of society very, very much.

What needs to happen? Are our governments responding to the crisis?

If the politicians were listening and fulfilling their duty, not only the suggestions of the industry, then they would have the duty to reduce EM loads. It is not only the politicians that are bad guys, it is also the individual which is very undifferentiated in using all of these technologies. I ask patients about their use of mobiles, DECTs, TVs, and do you take minerals and trace elements? Have you ever been to a biological doctor who has tested your resistance to EMR. I see that they do nothing, so who wonders when they are sick. It is like running on a road with lots of traffic… do you look left and right before you cross? Yes, they do that with the road, but not with other issues that can hurt you.

It’s a level of denial?

It’s a high level of ignorance of the population and the politician.Yes it’s denial because they would have to do something different.

Do you think this is a species type of issue, like people are focussed on global warming… this EMR is affecting DNA, lessens quality of life, what is the trajectory of all of this?

That is a difficult and very interesting question! High toxicity and EM load for sure, changes the DNA on a long term, and even in a life time. It can make the expression of the genes different.

Dr Thomas Rau, thank you very much for being with us. We appreciate your insight.

Thank you very much and all the best to you.

If WIFI is bad, why don’t they tell us? Are there really health problems associated with technology?

BASED ON warnings from Switzerland’s Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) website, it seems that the Swiss health officials might have some insider information – possibly from the World Health Organization that is also based in Switzerland. The WHO is the clearing house for microwave research – right?

If the WHO’s scientists, who live and work in Switzerland, find something is wrong, they will surely want to tell their own citizens and protect their family and children – right? Is this the reason why they have one of the better microwave safety standards in the world?

Dean at the State University New York believes up to 30% of childhood cancers come from exposure to EMFs. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) warns “There is reason for concern”

scientificDr. Mercola has done his homework. He’s found expert after expert confirming the harmful nature of many manmade electromagnetic fields.

For example, Dr. David Carpenter, Dean at the School of Public Health, State University of New York is quoted as saying he believes it is likely that up to 30% of all childhood cancers come from exposure to EMFs.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has warned “There is reason for concern” and advises prudent avoidance“. Martin Halper, the EPA’s Director of Analysis and Support says “I have never seen a set of epidemiological studies that remotely approached the weight of evidence that we’re seeing with EMFs. Clearly there is something here.”

Concerns about EMFs increased dramatically after Paul Brodeur wrote a series of articles in the New Yorker Magazine in June 1989 about the subject. Because of Paul Brodeur’s reputation, his articles had a big impact on all of us.

Should we be concerned about the invisible Electromagnetic fields in our homes & offices?

Scientific studies have shown beyond a doubt that EMF are of great concern.

A safe home is one that has low EMF. Let's get it to that level.
A safe home is one that has low EMF. Let’s get it to that level.

The words electromagnetic field (EMF) describe the effects of electrical and magnetic forces on our physical world. You can picture them as waves that spread out in all directions. The waves are reflected, absorbed, modulated and disturbed to produce areas of high and low intensity. Not all wave frequencies are bad. Light can even be regarded as an EMF. Our eyesight is well adapted. But several frequencies do cause us concern.

Most EMFs are completely invisible to humans. And this is particularly true of manmade EMFs. There is growing concern and emperical evidence that EMFs of varying wavelengths attack our health and wellbeing. There are many studies and we’ll be happy to provide a list. Even the World Health Organization (WHO), which has been very conservative on this subject, has now raised concerns based on recent studies. Studies have emerged that indicate damage to human tissue, cellular structure and the nervous system.

Our team is here to help you measure, identify and reduce the potential harms of electromagnetic fields. Here’s to your health!
