Are EMF’s Harming Us?
When they talk about Non-Ionizing or low-levels of radiation, they often say that it does not have an effect on us. For me, I know for a fact that it does! My hand will tingle/sizzle up into my arm when I hold my cell phone or use a computer mouse. If I have a computer on my lap, even with books or tray table between it my legs will start to tingle, burn and itch. Back in the day, my husband would buy me watches that would stop working within 2-3 weeks for no reason. Interestingly enough I found out I have MTHFR (C677T) gene mutations. People with C677T and or A1298C, often have problems with EMF as a result of a reduced ability to protect their health against electromagnetic radiation, this can ultimately lead to a condition known as electromagnetic hypersensitivity.
Electromagnetic fields do affect the electrical communication in your body, such as your brainwaves, or the ability of your neurons to fire and communicate. It can also impede inter-cell communication anywhere in your body. Health problems that can manifest as a result of this type of exposure include neurological- and behavioral changes, altered cell growth, cell mutations and more.
The BIG question is can Electromagnetic fields EMF from power lines, home wiring, airport and military radar, substations, transformers, computers, cell phones, appliances and MRI cause brain tumors, leukemia, birth defects, miscarriages, chronic fatigue, headaches, cataracts, heart problems, stress. nausea, chest pain, forgetfulness, cancer and other health problems?
Numerous studies have produced contradictory results, yet some experts are convinced that the threat is real.
Dr. David Carpenter, Dean at the School of Public Health, State University of New York believes it is likely that up to 30% of all childhood cancers come from exposure to EMFs. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) warns "There is reason for concern" and advises prudent avoidance".
Like everything one thing most studies don’t take into effect is that everyone has a different DNA make up. What affects me may not be the same for you, never the less it still does have a profound effect on some especially if they have a lowered immune system. So, still do your own research and see what is going to work best for you.
Here are a few tips to minimize the effect EMFs & Save Money
What Are EMF’s
The first thing to understand is how EMFs are created and how their resulting radiation (called EMR) affects humans. There are many types of EMF and most of them create some kind of EMR. EMRs come in two types: ionizing and non-ionizing. Ionizing EMF radiation comes from X-rays and other high-frequency emissions, not from standard electrical devices.
The two types of electricity that we use (alternating and direct currents, or AC / DC) have different properties in the types of EMF they create. AC creates much larger EMFs and much more EMR than does DC power.
How Do EMF’s Get Into Your Body?
What EMF Level Is 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.
I believe 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.
How Do I Measure EMFs?
A Gauss meter is an instrument which measures the strength of magnetic fields. Inside a Gauss meter, there is a coil of thin wire, typically with hundreds of turns. As a magnetic field radiates through the coil, it induces a current, which is amplified by the circuitry inside the Gauss meter.
Meters have either a single axis coil or a triple axis coil.
If you are sensitive to EMF’s, you may experience symptoms like:
Sources of Electromagnetic Field Exposure
Where Do Electromagnetic Fields Come From?
Electric fields can affect the electrical communication in your body, such as your brainwaves, or the ability of your neurons to fire and communicate. It can also impede inter-cell communication anywhere in your body. Health problems that can manifest as a result of this type of exposure include neurological- and behavioral changes, altered cell growth, cell mutations, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and even cancer.
How does radiation therapy affect the risk of second cancers
Most kinds of leukemia, including acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), and acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) can be caused by past radiation exposure Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), a bone marrow cancer that can turn into acute leukemia, has also been linked to past radiation exposure.
Scientists Agree That EMFs Pose a Threat to Your Health
