Special CBC investigation – the secret inside your phone. Cellphone safety and testing.

Screen Shot 2017-05-07 at 3.37.21 PMThe Secret Message in your phone & why they have to tell you about it yet hope you don’t find it!

Wendy Mesley headed up a special investigation on cellphone safety for CBC Marketplace. Her excellent segment took a look at the little known message inside your cell phone’s settings telling you to keep the device a certain distance away from your body. She asks the questions, “why is it so hidden,” “is Health Canada doing enough to protect us,” and has several brands of phones tested by independent labs to help us understand the levels of electromagnetic EMF radiation the phones are actually giving off.

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 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. If unsuccessful, have us install a smart meter shield set and a set of STETZERiSER filters*. 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. Two of the best products we’ve come across are the ADR-TEX Universal Electro-screen and the ADR-Mat . They are superior products with significant international recognition and awards. Contact us for more information, or if you’re ready  to buy, use the coupon code: 5%emf when you make your purchase at ADR.
      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.

Canadian Medical Association Journal reports Health Canada’s wireless limits are “A Disaster to Public Health”

Press Release (re-release July 5, 2015)

OTTAWA, May 7, 2015 /CNW/ – The Canadian Medical Association Journal today published a scathing condemnation of Health Canada’s safety guidelines for cell phones and Wifi.

The Journal (CMAJ) interviewed multiple international experts in radiation and cancer, who warn that the microwave levels allowed in Canadian classrooms, residences and workplaces are, “a disaster to public health.”

One scientist said that given the overwhelming evidence that wireless radiation is harmful, Health Canada staff are either, “unwilling or not competent to make evaluation of the current literature.”

The article points out that Canada’s Parliamentary Standing Committee on Health recently completed three days of hearings on Canada’s safety guidelines, and sent federal scientists back to the office to re-examine 140 recent studies that show wireless radiation emitted by cell phones and WiFi can cause harm.

One oncologist interviewed by the CMAJ said that Canada’s safety guidelines for wireless radiation need to be “urgently revised” due to the obvious risk of cancer.

The CMAJ article revealed that James McNamee, who wrote Health Canada’s safety code, has also co-authored academic papers with scientists who openly accept payments from the wireless industry.

“That Canada’s wireless safety code is out of date and mired in conflict of interest is no longer a question it’s a fact,” said Frank Clegg, CEO of Canadians For Safe Technology (C4ST).

“We’re hoping the Parliamentary Standing Committee will have strong recommendations to fix it,” said Clegg.

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

Swedish study confirms that EMF is “associated with increased risk of childhood leukaemia”

Concerns Over EMF are Justified

According to a Swedish study on EMF, Extremely low frequency magnetic fields (of the type that emanates from distribution and use of electricity) are associated with an increased risk of childhood leukaemia in epidemiologic research and have been classified as a possible carcinogen to humans by IARC (WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer). While most research was done one and two decades ago, the association has been confirmed in recent studies. Learn more [PDF].

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!
