How much time do you or your family members spend exposed to cell phones, laptops, desk computers, mobile phones, Wi-Fi routers, TVs and other electronic devices? Did you know that some people report that they experience unpleasant symptoms due to exposure to electromagnetic fields given out by the technology we surround ourselves with every day? In fact, some people suffer from electromagnetic sensitivity (EMF). In the most severe cases, electromagnetic sensitivity can ruin people’s lives, making it impossible for them to work in computer-filled offices, or to even enter shops with fluorescent lights. Some people are so sensitive to electromagnetic fields emitted by today’s technology that can not even visit the homes of friends or family.
While you may not have heard of this condition before, it is a health risk that some researchers have been tracking for years. It was concluded as early as 2007 that existing public safety limits for EMF were inadequate to protect public health. Many of these experts concluded five years ago that new, biologically-based public safety limits were needed. As more and more people become concerned about their exposure to electromagnetic fields, researchers have started to track the effects caused by this exposure. In a national study, adults ages 81 to 91 with even short-term exposure to GSM cell phone radiation reported symptoms including: headache, neurological problems, sleep, and concentration problems.
Sometimes what is seen as advancements in our technological world are really dangers to our most vulnerable. The spread of cell towers in communities, for example, might increase our ability to stay connected, but it is also increasing electromagnetic exposure to our most vulnerable. When these cell towers are placed on pre-school, church day-care, and school campuses, it means that young children can have 1,000 times higher RF exposures in home and school environments than existed even 20 to 25 years ago. Some are even beginning to wonder if these incresed exposure levels are leading to the increased diagnosis in ADHD and even autism.
If you or someone in your family has been showing symptoms of electromagnetic sensitivity it might be time for you to seek methods to avoid further exposure. Companies now sell EMF protection jewelry, including an EMF protection necklace. An EMF safety store also has a variety of sizes of EMF shielding fabric available. If you feel that it is important to protect your children from exposure to electromagnetic fields, it is time for you to find what kinds of protection devices are available!
