Modern technology has made our lives more efficient and more comfortable. Laptops, tablets, cell phones, computers, baby monitors, dimmer switches and many other devices have become part of our daily life. However, all the convenience that occurs with electronic device usage comes with harmful secondary effects that can affect our health and overall well-being. This is primarily due to electromagnetic radiation that comes from these devices.
We are radiated with 300 MHz to 300 GHz of EMFs each day of our lives, being exposed to way more microwave radiation than our ancestors were. According to scientists the frequency of this radiation keeps increasing.
Where and when are we in an area saturated with microwave radiation? It's quite simple to find out. As long as we have a signal on our cell phone, we are in such an area, being exposed to microwave radiation.
There are various microwave radiation sources, including:
- Cell towers and cell phones
- Laptops, tablets, computers
- Baby monitors
- UHF radios
It's already known that long term exposure to EMF radiation can lead to the development of severe diseases. There is an increasing number of individuals who suffer from a condition called Electromagnetic Sensibility. These individuals are sensitive to EMF radiation and present various symptoms during cell phone, laptop usage or have these symptoms when they are in the proximity of a cell phone tower.
Some of these symptoms are:
- sleep disturbances, including insomnia
- depression and anxiety
- lack of concentration
- memory problems
Even if you do not have these symptoms, long term exposure to microwave radiation can have negative effects to your health.
How Do I Protect Myself from Microwave Radiation?
- Keep a distance, if possible from cell phone towers - the further you are away, the less radiation you will get.
- Add microwave shielding to your home and use a microwave radiation protection device. There are renovations and some devices that can protect your home from outside radiation.
- Get rid of electronics that would be dangerous to have on or near your body - electric blankets, heating pads, spring mattresses.
- Make your bedroom an EMF radiation-free oasis. Re-position your bed and bedroom, if needed to be as far as possible from power lines, routers and smart meters. If possible move your bed at least a foot away from the wall, the wiring in the wall behind your headboard likely is radiating.
- Never sleep next to your cellphone - having the cell phone close to your bed, can dramatically affect your sleep. Turn off your cell phone or not even bring it into the bedroom, this is the best you can do for a good sleep.
- Avoid Using Wi-fi - most of us have a Wi-fi router in our homes. It's convenient, but it's quite harmful. The best we can do is to connect our laptop or computer to an ethernet connection and turn the router off if possible. Most of us have jobs that require a cell phone, computer or other electronic device usages, it is essential to do our very best to make our home EMF radiation safe as much as it's possible.
- Electronic Pollution From Your Neighbours - What can we do about our neighbors' WiFi and other radiation pollution? Try to explain to them the dangers of Wi-fi and other electronics, and see if they would be willing to take some of the steps you've already taken to protect yourself.
- Adopt a healthy lifestyle - EMF radiation can cause fatigue, headaches, depression and cardiovascular problems. Exercise releases endorphins from the brain, keeping you more energized and happy. Organic, pure food will help to keep your body healthy with a strong immune system.
