We live in a world that continually bombards our bodies with a wide variety of electromagnetic fields and radiation. They are completely invisible and we can’t feel their presence at all, and many of us therefore assume that they have no effect on our bodies. However, there is mounting scientific evidence that this may not be the case.
Studies have linked some cancers to long term low level EMF exposure. But in the past couple of decades, and the start of the hi-tech revolution, we have drastically increased the amount of electromagnetic radiation that we are exposed to, both in-terms of level and type. Our lives are filled with an increasing number of electronic and electrical appliances, power consumption has been growing, and we are surrounding ourselves with an ever increasing number of RF transmission sources, from cell phone towers, to cordless phones and wireless routers. Scientific research and studies cannot keep up with the pace of this increased exposure to determine the resulting health effects.
Early evidence points to some serious health issues, and there are a growing number of people who are found to be electro-hypersensitive. However, we are still many years away from a general acceptance of the existence of the risks of EMF exposure. We are even farther away from having government step in to provide proper standards and industry regulation. We seem to be now, where the tobacco debate was 30 years ago.
The most prudent thing to do is to reduce and limit our exposure to EMF radiation wherever we can. This doesn’t mean giving up our modern lifestyle and moving out to a remote area. There are often a number of very simple things that can be done to drastically reduce our exposure. Moving that clock radio on your night-table or that wireless router sitting on your desk can drastically reduce your daily exposure. In other case, simple shielding or a rearrangement of the furniture can do the trick. The only thing that makes this process difficult is figuring out where the levels are high and exactly where they are coming from.
An EMF Consultation includes a full personalized survey of your home or office to determine the levels of the various forms of harmful electromagnetic radiation to which you are exposed. Levels are measured against the latest and most stringent standards and hotspots are identified. The inspection focuses on areas where you spend most of your time, where you sleep, where you work, where you play. Once the sources of the unacceptable levels have been determine, recommendations are provided as to the steps to take to reduce or eliminate them. In many case, the solutions can be carried out on the spot.
By increasing your awareness of EMF sources in your personal environment, you can take control and, in most cases, make simple changes to drastically reduce your exposure levels. It’s just the smart thing to do.
