EMF: My mom and I are always fascinated by the technology of cell phones. She can be in the middle of nowhere in Germany and I can be (not so much in the middle of nowhere in Canada but let’s say) in Vancouver and we can talk. Instantly! Without any delays and without any cord that runs deep down through the ocean. It’s mind-boggling. EMF waves connect us, which are invisible to the eye, insmellable* to the nose, infeelable* and inhearable* to the other sensory organs.
But just because we don’t see, smell, taste or feel it, we can ignore it. Because something is there. EMF travel fast. Very, very fast. The last time I checked it took me around 9 hours by plane to cover the distance between Frankfurt and Vancouver (which I consider very fast).
EMF or electromagnetic frequency are electrical and magnetic forces that transmit what needs to be transmitted
They do so by traveling at the speed of light and in the form of waves. Every time a human technology tool is used or simply plugged in (microwave, cell phone, hairdryer, remote controls, Wi-Fi modems, traffic control, smart meter) a powerful artificial EMF is created.
In the case of a microwave oven the waves at a specific microwave frequency agitate water molecules in food. The water molecules get so excited that they begin to vibrate, which generates heat.
Natural EMF is no stranger to the body or nature
The sun is a natural source of EMF. Electric and magnetic fields make the compass face north-south and helps birds to navigate. EMF creates the scary lightning things in the sky. Your nerves relay signals by transmitting electric impulses. Your doctor can monitor the electric activity of the heart with an electrocardiogram. And a lot of body functions are possible because of electrical currents that exist in the human body. The difference in the man-made EMF is that it works on an extremely low frequency, think tiny waves for natural and big waves for man-made.
The question is do artificial high frequency electromagnetic waves affect the human body in a negative way? If the waves of a microwave oven can heat up food, can the waves of my cellphone heat up the water molecules in my head? Or if men carry their cell phone in the front pocket of their pants, can the waves of the cell phone turn the sperm into Bratwurst? Remember they are “stored” outside the body because they are very sensitive to (body)heat. Anyone concerned?
Can artificial radiation influence the electric balance of the body?
It’s been said that this kind of radiation disrupts molecules as it passes through the body, which can alter the behaviour of cells and hormones. According to PreventDisease.com: “In September 2007, the EU’s European Environment Agency (EEA) and the country of Germany both issued warnings to their citizens advising them to avoid the use of Wi-Fi and cell phones until further long term studies are conducted …”
Your thyroid gland is very sensitive to this kind of radiation. With an under active thyroid (hypothyroidism), your thyroid fails to produce sufficient levels of the thyroid hormones needed by your body. This slows down a variety of bodily functions, as well as your metabolism. Losing weight for instant becomes more difficult. You feel tired or sluggish, you lack motivation and are constipated?
Symptoms of artificial EMF hypersensitivity
Some people say that they are quite sensitive to electromagnetic radiation, which manifests itself in
- Burning sensation in the face
- Dryness of mucus membranes such as eyes and throat
- Swelling of a mucus membranes such as nose, throat, ears and sinuses
- Problems in concentration
- Loss of memory and dizziness
- Headaches and nausea
- Teeth and jaw pains
- Aches and pains in muscles and joints.
The BioInitiative Working Group says ” …evidence for health risk from wireless tech is growing stronger”. Children are especially more vulnerable than adults. According to a study, the brain of a child absorbs 50% more radiation from cell phones than adults because a children’s brain is made up of more water. Other studies show that after 2 minutes of talking on a cell phone, children’s brain tissue is still heated above normal for up to two hours. That can’t be good.
I think it is important that we become aware that maybe things we can’t see, smell or feel can impact your well-being. It’s easy to brush things off as nonsense. But as examples of the past have shown, things we can’t believe today might become a no-brainer in the future, like the following sample.
What looks like nonsense now, might be proven fact in the future
Today for instance we know that infections spread because of microbes that have been transferred from patients to patients. This is an absolute no-brainer. Back in 1847 “Semmelweis” – a doctor of medicine with a specialization in midwifery – saw a connection between puerperal fever and disinfected hands of the hospital staff. Using a chlorinated lime solution for hand washing between surgeries instantly reduced the cases of death in his patients. But his discovery contradicted the beliefs of science and medicine at that time. His findings didn’t gain any support or recognition. The criticism he received because of his discovery made him a broken man.
So it depends what side you want to be on. Stay open-minded and maybe investigate what kind of an impact EMF has on your life. Do live close to cell phone towers? Do you have a smart meter in your house? Did you neighbour install a new Wi-Fi. The best way to measure the effects of cellphones, Wi-Fi or microwave radiation is with an appropriate electromagnetic radiation meter ($100 to $400). You also can hire an inspector who checks your house and gives recommendations.
Before you make a call, check your Wi-Fi connection
The thing I will do for my health starting right now is before I make a call I check the Wi-Fi signal. When the signal is low the cell phone will ramp up its power to make that call possible. More power means more energy, which means bigger EMF radiation waves right next to my brain. If the signal is low I change my location until the signal shows all bars. I send a text or I use the good old landline.
