The natural world, including your body, produces electromagnetic fields. But these fields are low in intensity. Technology produces much more intense electromagnetic fields, and these fields can cause health risks. You cannot see or hear them. But if you live where there is cell phone service or power lines, for example, you are exposed to artificial EMF's.
The Electromagnetic Spectrum
The electromagnetic (EM) spectrum is the scientific name for types of photon radiation. Electromagnetic radiation consists of photons (light particles) that travel in a wave-like pattern at the speed of light.
The amount of energy found in these photons forms the various types of electromagnetic radiation in the spectrum, which is expressed in terms of energy, wavelength or frequency.
Frequency is measured in cycles per second (hertz), wavelength is measured in meters, and energy is measured in electron volts. The strength of an EMF depends on its wavelength and frequency. More waves with shorter wavelengths create more energy as you move up the spectrum.
At the low end of the electromagnetic spectrum are extremely low-frequency (ELF) waves. These have longer wavelengths and come from the 50- to 60-hertz power lines that feed household appliances. They can pose health risks, especially when they are close to the body for extended periods.
On the high end is radio frequency (RF) radiation. This comes from cell phones, cordless phones, mobile antennas, broadcast towers, electrical security systems and more. The higher the frequency, the greater the risk to health. For example, microwaves are very-high-frequency radiation, and they can pose a significant health risk. Many cell phone towers operate in the microwave range.
Bio-electrical signals help to regulate many processes of the human body. In fact, science suggests that every cell in your body might have its own EMF.
However, strong artificial EMFs can enter your body and interfere with the natural way your body works. This can affect virtually any system within your body, from your sleep cycles to your stress levels to your immunities to your DNA.
Geopathic stress has been found to be the common factor in many serious and minor illnesses and psychological conditions, especially those conditions in which the immune system is severely compromised. The major issue is an increased risk of cancer. While geopathic stress does not directly cause cancer, it weakens the body and makes it much more likely to acquire cancer. Studies have shown that over 85% of patients who die from cancer had regular exposure to geopathic stress.
- The late Dr. Hans Nieper, M.D., stated that 92% of all his cancer patients and 75% of his MS patients are geopathically stressed. Dr. Nieper was a world-renowned cancer and MS specialist and operated one of the largest MS practices in the world, located in Germany.
- Von Pohl proved to the Central Committee for Cancer Research in Berlin, almost 60 years ago, that one was unlikely to get cancer unless one spent some time in geopathically stressed places (mainly when sleeping).
- Dr. Hager, M.D., found Geopathic Stress was present in all 5,348 cancer cases investigated.
- The German physicist Robert Endros studied this question with Professor KE Lotz of the School of Architecture of Biberach (West Germany). Their analysis of 400 deaths due to cancer revealed that 383 cases were related to dwelling - over geological faults, underground water veins and disturbances of the natural geomagnetic field.
Other potential problems of geopathic stress includes cardiovascular deficiency, attention deficit disorder, immune deficiency disorders, and chronic fatigue. Some lesser effects of influence are chronic body pains, headaches, sudden signs of physical ageing, irritability, and restless sleep. It is also a common factor in cases of infertility and miscarriages, learning difficulties, behavioural problems and neurological disabilities in children.
When the home or work place of the affected person is neutralized, the geopathic stress conditions resolve themselves and the body begins to heal.
These produce very high toxic readings, into radio wave frequencies and even microwave frequencies. This is because the electric wires attach to a fuse box draws a lot of electricity.
can emit EMFs as high as circuit breakers. The older the unit, the greater the dangerous EMF radiation.
In-Floor Electrical Heating
This mode of heating utilizes electrical wires that are embedded right into a home’s wood or concrete flooring. EMFs can reach 100+ mG at the floor and 30+ mG at waist height.
create a higher level of EMFs than incandescent bulbs. A typical fluorescent tube may have a reading of 160 to 200 mG at 1 inch away. Even electromagnetic radiation from a compact fluorescent light can be problematic.
Halogen ceiling down or “can” lights
These lights require a transformer that can transmit EMF upward as well as downward, which means rooms above as well as below are affected.
Anything that’s plugged into a wall socket gives off an electromagnetic field (EMF) of 50-60 hertz, even if that appliance is turned off.
Cordless phones emit a tremendous amount of toxic radiation—twice as much as cell phone masts! The danger is in the handset as well as the base stations, which continuously give off harmful radio waves well over 100 hertz (1 kHz) every hour of the day.
Recently, the British Health Protection Agency found one of the causes of neuromas (tumors deep in the ear) are cordless phones. For cordless phones users the incidence of acoustic neuromas doubles in just 10 years.
Even the handset of a land line telephone emits high EMFs. The telephone receiver, the part held to your ear, carries a harmful south polar magnetic energy.
TVs & Computers
TV screens and computer monitors radiate EMFs of 60Hz or more. Older style televisions and computer screens produce radio-frequency fields of 10,000-30,000 Hz (10-30 kHz) as well as 60 Hz fields. Smart phones are also a source of EMF.
The Danger EMFs In Your Bedroom
Because people spend so much time sleeping, bedroom EMFs are a serious concern. The EMF exposure is typically less intense than that of a kitchen, but the exposure is prolonged.
According to guidelines, bedroom EMFs (especially in the area of your head) should remain under 1mG while sleeping and never exceed 2-4 mG.
Electric Blankets and Water Bed EMF
Electric blankets and waterbeds are major EMF sources, all the more dangerous because of how close they are to sleeping people for so long.
- 1mG or less: considered safe for sleepers.
- Above 2 mG: begins to create biological stress.
- 8 mG: electric blanket or waterbed heater on low.
- 21 mG: electric blanket or waterbed heater on high.
- 6-7 inches: how far nearby magnetic fields penetrate into your body.
A recent study linked electric blankets to miscarriages and childhood leukemia. Similar health issues have been reported by people who sleep on waterbeds, which utilize electricity to heat the cool water inside the mattress.
That electric clock next to your head could be emitting a magnetic field of 5 to 10mG—even up to a yard away—the EMF equivalent of an electric power line!
Electric Razors and Hair Dryers
Surprisingly, these everyday use devices can emit EMFs as high as 200 to 400 mG when turned on. Because of this, experts recommend hair dryers not be used on children, because EMF fields that strong can damage rapidly developing brain and skull. young nervous systems.
