EMF Sources: Utility and home wiring, electric appliances, computers, entertainment systems, fluorescent lighting and all electronics within one’s sleeping environment (plug-in clock radio…)
RFR Sources: Cell phone towers, smart phones, Wi-Fi, cordless phones, Wi-Fi printers, SmartMeters, urban radar devices, CFL light bulbs, dirty electricity, and laptops/iPads with wireless capability
Why are EMF and RFR an important topic?
There are more studies showing negative EMF health effects than there are for smoking. Yep, read that again!
Consider the increase in usage of electronics and wireless devices that expose us to ever-increasing amounts of EMFs and RFRs. Because they are invisible and mysterious, it is easy to ignore the potential health hazards. However, more and more people in our society are becoming sensitive to these fields and it is important to make sure our home and work environments are free of this form of pollution. My long-time friend Jeromy is an engineer and recently did an EMF Analysis to show me everything that was going on in my home. He used 4 different measurement devices that measured EMF, RFR, dirty electricity and body voltage. Seeing the measurements is quite amazing! He then provided me with a comprehensive report that made everything very clear, including what remediation actions I could easily take to radically improve my home environment.
Jeromy’s website, EMF Analysis, has some of the most pertinent and up-to-date research and videos on this subject and his service is valuable for anyone who wants to improve their home or business environment. He is giving a 25% discount on his services to patients of the clinic – just mention you saw it here. He’s also happy to answer questions you have if you are considering an analysis. You can email him here.
Using some of the information I received from Jeromy and the research I have been doing on this subject, here are the top 10 actions I have taken, or will take:
- I opted out of the PG&E “Smart Meter” program. Learn more about Smart Meter dangers here.Paying a fee of $75 once and $10 monthly is ridiculous, but worth it. Get your neighbors to follow suit. If you do not think it is fair that we must pay fees to keep our health, join the thousands who have signed this petition that was started by a Novato woman
- I turned off my wireless router / wireless internet connection – it was creating high exposure around the router and throughout our living room where we spend so much time
- I ditched my cordless phone
- I turn my iPhone to airplane mode when not in use; or at least at night and use speaker phone rather than holding the phone next to my brain
- I plugged my laptop into a 25 foot Ethernet cable from Staples and switched Wi-Fi function OFF. This is a very important step if you spend time on the computer
- I plugged a bunch of Greenwave Filters into the outlets in my home to reduce dirty electricity
- I use a battery operated clock by my bed
- I bought conductive grounded materials to ground my body’s electrical voltage while sitting at a computer or sleeping. Also, I stand barefoot outdoors to ground as much as possible. Learn more by reading, “Earthing” – available at the clinic.
- I found out my neighbor’s Smart Meter (PG&E) was pulsing very high microwave radiation (RFR) bursts about every 30 – 60 seconds – just 10 feet from the walls of my home… I plan on talking to them about it.
- I plan to put regular switches where I now have dimming light switches
Other simple things you can do:
- Don’t use a microwave
- Use a radiation reducing headset with your smart phone (we have them at the clinic)
- Minimize electronics where you sleep and where you spend the most time
- Be Wi-Fi free
- Replace the supposedly “green” CFL light bulbs with the old-fashioned incandescent bulbs or with the new, super-efficient LED bulbs. CFL bulbs increase dirty electricity in your home and actually emit RFR. They also have mercury in them, which is hazardous if they break
- Plug entertainment areas into a surge-protected, dirty electricity reducing power strip and turn it off when not in use
- If you live near a cell-tower, you may want to move if you have the opportunity. Jeromy also has shielding and remediation recommendations for your home. You can check for cell towers here
- Use corded old fashioned phones with long cables!
- At work, be at least 25 feet from wireless routers and encourage your workplace to get rid of Wi-Fi – corded/Ethernet internet connections are faster, more secure and better for our health
