Lovely Peoples of the World,
Today we are discussing EMF’s, that is Electromagnetic Fields.
These are microwave radiation frequencies, that pass into our bodies, when appliances like your microwave, mobile phone and wireless routers. They can also come from smart meters, the fuse box, air conditioner units, hair dryers, electric blankets and your fridge as well as old metal plumbing, cell towers to relay signals, cordless phone bases and handsets.
Dr. Nora D Volkow says that ‘Technology is able to activate the human brain to have an effect’, with RF and EMF frequencies, this leads to a high brain glucose metabolism with near antenna exposure. August 27, 2013.
The consensus adds that the younger age you are exposed the higher the rate of absorption and greater health risk, this is already established in particular regard to childhood Leukaemia. The National Research Council adds that exposure to cell radiation effects the immune, endocrine and nervous systems, as well as foetal development and overall metabolism. The FCC’s radiation standards says mobile phone use has 20 times more radiation to the head than the rest of the body and this does not account for child risk and absorption with rates for younger bodies being higher. It also does not include the accumulation factor of use over time.
The executive summary of August 2013 states; high glioma and acoustic neuroma have increased from 50>90% in brain tumours, high salivary gland tumours have increased from 50>60%, while behavioural risk with hyperactivity and pregnancy have elevated by 80%. Migraines and vertigo have 10>20% more hospitalisations. While EWG.org have stat’s of 11>19% drop in sperm motility and morphology. This site also states the SAR – Specific Absorption Rate is equal if the power is off and on with mobile phones, with the potential of heating tissues increases with time. Radiation emitted when the phone is also not hot, still effects health. However, distance is relevant, for example using a headset minimises the exposure, a current does travel the cord but is less than direct head to phone contact. Thermal impact of the phone antenna can cause issues especially over time, with different body part absorbing quicker than others, as do kids. Think of putting the phone in your pocket, tucked into a bra or even in your handbag under your arm, next to glands. Suggestions here can be putting the phone in flight mode or turning off and checking in throughout the day.
Here is a list of associated health issues with EMF’s
- Endocrine disruption.
- Pregnancy and foetal development.
- Extreme shifts in body temperature, with regard to menopause, discomfort and cooking of tissue.
- Decreased sperm count and motility.
- Focus and attention.
- Muscle spasms.
- Hormone imbalances.
- Appetite disruption.
- Heart disease.
- Radiation poisoning.
- Altered cell health, growth and mutations.
- Chronic Fatigue.
- Confusion and disorientation.
- Aggression, mood swings.
- Heart palpation.
- Migraine and headache.
- Decreased melatonin production.
- Double strand breaks in DNA.
- Nausea, fatigue, burning and prickling sensations, tingling, electric shocks.
- Poor short term memory.
- Dizziness, dyslexia, learning difficulty.
- Chest pain.
- Fluid collection in the body, especially the chest.
- Blood pressure shifts.
- Muscular pain and ache, joint swelling and pain, tremors, ringing in ears, hearing loss, impaired balance.
- Hanging on flu like symptoms.
- Impaired vision.
