Living near or want to buy near power lines in the greater Los Angeles area? What distance is considered safe?

Nearby power lines in the greater Los Angeles area? What distance is considered safe?

IMG_1334

We’re EMF inspectors who specialize in testing the strength and potential harm of nearby power lines.

We are L.A. based EMF consultants that measure and test the magnetic and electric energy radiating from high voltage power lines. We can tell you whether the measured readings are considered safe or not according to the latest research in EMF safety. Depending on the amount of power flowing through the lines and the distance, a safe distance could be relatively close or might be farther away than you expect. The only way to know for sure is to get a test done.

Studies have revealed that living too close to high voltage power lines & power transmission networks can cause cancer and a long list of other health issues.

We measure harmful EMF radiation near power lines and do EMF home inspections in the metropolitan LA area and all over California.

We do EMF home testing and inspection in New York State. Buffalo, Rochester, Albany, New York City, NJ including Trenton, Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington DC.

Are you concerned about EMF, cell phone towers, power lines, and electromagnetic radiation in your environment? Then call us at (312) 690-9045.

  

These are among the most highly bathed EMF EMR RF areas in the United States.

Have us perform a proper scientific inspection to determine the risks where you live or work.

Whether you’re in Manhattan or upstate New York, Philadelphia or Boston, your risks may be quite substantial. We have the experience and understanding to give you the answers you need. We’re concerned that people are buying meters and trying to assess whether the area they are measuring is dangerous or not. Assessments must be done with a complete understanding of the exposure risks involved! This can only be done by experts who have spent hundreds of hours of research and training. There are so many parameters involved, the layman cannot do a proper job of determining the true nature of the risks. Don’t get caught doing your own improper or incomplete sampling, not knowing all the nuances of what’s involved. Our inspections are affordable and will give you an accurate reading. We provide on-the-spot information and a complete written report.

We use several professional EMF meters to measure EMFs and we use them with the full knowledge of vigorous research and training plus the experience of hundreds of inspections. Each one is different!

All in all, our team takes a scientific and 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.

Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Testing for your home, pre-purchase, or workplace. Toronto and GTA inspectors.

We perform EMF measurements, home or office testing and assessments for a wide range of customers, both residential and commercial.

meter_generic2There is growing proof that exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) cause health problems. The human brain, blood, and breast are the most succeptible to sickness due to harmful EMF radiation.

We do EMF related testing and measurement in the Toronto and Greater Toronto area (GTA). We also schedule appointments farther afield, including Southwestern Ontario and Northern Ontario. UPDATE: We can now make arrangements right across Canada.

Be sure you know the levels of EMF radiation in your existing home, a home you’re planning to purchase, or in your workplace.

We also offer protection from exposure to high frequency, electrical and magnetic fields by various means of mitigation, including Stetzerizer filters. Two additional areas of concern are cellular and wireless (WiFi). During our visit to your site, we conduct a mini-education session on the whole topic of EMF and on the safest ways to use mobile technologies.

Following are some of the ways your home or office may be gradually making you sick:

  • proximity to high voltage power lines
  • proximity to cell phone towers
  • household wiring and poor grounding
  • appliances
  • lamps and clock radios
  • lighting
  • cordless phones
  • Wi-Fi
  • cellular phones
  • dimmer switches
  • computers
  • home entertainment systems and TV


The following process of EMF Home Inspection covers all of the above and more.

We measure for:

  1. Harmful magnetic frequencies
  2. Harmful electrical frequencies
  3. Harmful radio frequencies

Received from our good friend, Barb Payne

March in the thousands with 350.org, David Suzuki, Naomi Klein, Maude Barlow…

TORONTO SUNDAY, JULY 5th afternoon. We’ll be in group #2 (blue colour marshalling quadrant, which looks to be in front of Queen’s Park as the northeast quadrant starting point). This quadrant is named “Good Work, Clean Jobs, Healthy Communities.” Please join in with us even if it’s only for a short time… we’ll be in black t-shirts that say on the front “why do I prefer non-wireless? wireless is radiation @PracticeSafeTek. If you’re comfortable in an all-black shirt, that would help others realize we’re all together. And anyone who wants to can help carry the “electroSMOG awareness” banner (see photo attached, so you know what you’re looking for). We’ll also carry various ultra-light-weight signs we can share (not heavy placards on poles). The website we’ll show is eSMOGfaq.org (which is new, and after this weekend I’ll have a habit of often changing where it lands… you’ll see what I mean when you try it).
“A number of high-profile Canadians and others will march, including: David Suzuki, Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Stephen Lewis, and Maude Barlow. Celebrities attending will be announced soon.” Also, I see that David Suzuki Foundation today e-mail blasted to draw attention to the event and encouraging participation.
Hope to see everyone there. More at http://jobsjusticeclimate.ca/.
More event schedule details are pasted below (or at http://jobsjusticeclimate.ca/media/ ).
Let’s do this!!
Best,

10 tips for EMF protection. How we can protect ourselves from harmful electromagnetic radiation.

How to lower your exposure to EMF

We are exposed to such a wide variety of electromagnetic pollution (electrosmog) these days, it’s just about impossible to avoid it. A lot of us are wondering how to do this most effectively and what are the worst offenders.

emf_protection_umbrella

Ten tips to reduce your exposure:

      1. Electrical equipment and electronics: Add some distance between yourself and 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. Unplug your computer at night if it’s in your bedroom.
      2. WiFi: Instead of WiFi, use ethernet as much as possible. 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). The usual IP address for your router’s console is 192.168.2.1 and in the case of the Bell 2Wire modem, the address is sometimes gateway.2wire.net . Get used to “wired” Internet access, and use Wi-Fi sparingly. Even a 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 and professional lifestyle. Many of us can’t keep them off all the time. But even if you decide to have your phone in airplane mode 50% of the time, that’s 50% better than not at all. 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: Discard them. 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: You spend a third of your life in the bedroom. Make sure it’s 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 many EMF mitigation techniques available to us, 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.

EMF Radiation Detection and Prevention Services

Updated July 27, 2018

Electromagnetic field radiation detection and protection are my specialty. Have your home inspected for harmful EMF. My consulting services include testing for high levels of EMF in homes near power line fields and for RF (Radio Frequencies) emanating from nearby cell towers, smart meters, etc.

EMF Survey & Measurement Services

Available for both residential and commercial clients. Once I’ve tested the home, I provide an immediate written report and help you understand the findings. I then go over the remediation options that apply to your situation.

I am trained for radiation detection and remediation by the GEOVITAL Academy in Austria. For over 30 years they’ve focussed with great intensity on the cause and effect relationship between radiation exposure and its effects on health. Environmental influences can affect the regeneration of the body and thereby its ability to fight disease. By treating thousands of patients, the Academy has developed their own technology and approach. They teach their consultants how to detect and address the causes, not the symptoms!

RF (Radio Frequency Exposure) Scans and Evaluations

I test RF emissions for intensity in order to determine sources and help with remediation solutions according to the guidelines as determined by the GEOVITAL Academy.

Magnetic / Electric / RF & EMF Shielding Consultations

If you are concerned about possible excessive electromagnetic energy, I am fully qualified to assess, troubleshoot and make sound recommendations to fix or mitigate the situation.

Electrical Wiring Issues from excessive EMF Fields

One of the most common sources of high EMF fields inside the home is improper wiring. I can detect these problems and either assist in fixing the wiring or installing dirty electricity filters that absorb the excessive radiation.

Preliminary Construction Surveys and Pre-Purchase Scenarios

I’m frequently called out to construction sites before a structure is built. I can make construction recommendations for minimizing electromagnetic field emissions for safety and electromagnetic interference concerns.

Another common request is to measure the EMF intensity in potential new homes, apartments, or condos. The team and I check for the potential impact of nearby powerlines, substations, transformers, cell towers and other EMF/RF generating sources.

List of potentially harmful sources of EMF and how to get protection

Our modern society is filled with many wired and wireless conveniences but what effect do they have on our family’s health? See the rest of our blogs here for research and information on why the following are the worst sources of often harmful radiation.

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

What can be done about all this exposure? The first step is to have a qualified inspector measure the readings of these sources of electromagnetic waves in your home or office.

Some of the Equipment we use:

For MAGNETIC Fields, our meter of choice is the Trifield Meter Model 100XE. It is a proven leader for magnetic field testing. It is extremely sensitive and accurate. It measures down to 0.2 mG. Note: you want to see below 2 mG and ideally below 1 mG to avoid health problems. 0.5 and below are even better.

For ELECTRIC Fields, we often use the ESI 24 EMF meter, made in Germany. It tests for all 3 types of EMF fields, so we use it to corroborate our other meters’ readings, and rely on it heavily for the electric and RF readings.

For DIRTY ELECTRICITY, we use the STETZERiZER® Microsurge Meter by Graham-Stetzer, which 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.

For RADIO FREQUENCIES, we usually use the ESI 24 EMF meter.

Based on the measurements our meters give us, there is virtually always an optimal action plan that will reduce or eliminate up to 90% of the problems. We are here to make that happen.

As part of our service, we assist you in several mitigation techniques and also provide on-site education on EMF and a full report.
