IS EMF AFFECTING YOU?

  ~ MICHELLE TONKIN ND




EMF Stands for Electromagnetic Frequencies.  EMF has existed since the beginning; it has always been here as the sun send out its magnetic fields (EMF) also known as radiation. We see this energy coming from the sun as visible light.  When electricity started to pop on our planet at the turn of the 20th century, scientists recognized that this electricity was sending out EMF’s just like the sun did naturally.  We also known that other appliances, XRAYS, MRI’S etc also have been shown to produce EMF. With all of our technological advances, we are exposed to hundreds of forms of potentially toxic frequencies every day. Sources such as cell phones, wireless Internet, TV’s and HDTV’s, radios, IPODS, fluorescent lights, computers, PDA’s, are all encompassing and a part of our everyday life. 



The World Bank has shown that 87% of the population of the world has access to electricity and utilities appliances in our modern world. That’s a lot of EMF being produced! However, even with all of these EMF sources, scientists in general aren’t too concerned with EMF and their impact on our health. Most don’t believe that there are any dangers associated with EMF exposure, while some are unsure as they are not sure if there is enough research to show if they are safe or not. However, there have been more than 500 studies which have shown to cause harmful effects to our health even at exposure which would be too low to cause any significant heating. Over 240 scientists who have published peer reviewed research on the health effects of EMF have cited these studies and signed the International EMF Scientist Appeal, which calls for stronger exposure limits. Those who have signed this appeal make up the majority of experts on the effects of nonionizing radiation.


The appeal shares the following:

“Numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines. Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans. Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plant and animal life.” ~https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/we-have-no-reason-to-believe-5g-is-safe/



There are 2 types of EMF exposure. The first one is Low Level radiation aka Non-Ionizing Radiation. This type of radiation is thought to be mild and harmless, but we have shown otherwise. This can include appliances like microwaves, cellphones, WIFI, powerline and MRI’s.  The second type is known as High Level Radiation known as ionizing radiation. This form comes from ultraviolet rays from the sun and X-Rays. It’s shown that distance from EMF helps to decrease the intensity to your exposure to EMF. 



Some Common sources of low to high level radiation include:



Non-ionizing radiation

  • microwave ovens

  • computers

  • house energy meters

  • wireless (Wi-Fi) routers

  • cellphones

  • Bluetooth devices

  • power lines

  • MRIs

Ionizing radiation

  • ultraviolet light

  • X-rays



“According to the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), EMFs are “possibly carcinogenic to humans.”


The IARC believes that some studies show a possible link between EMFs and cancer in people.”  https://www.healthline.com/health/emf#research


An item that seems to cause concern for EMF is the cellphone. The use of the cellphone has dramatically increased since the 1980’s. And now these ‘MINI COMPUTERS’ are basically everywhere, even little children are using them! Because of the concern for health and cellphone use, researchers started a study back in 2000 to compare cancer cases in those who use cellphones to those who do not. They followed cancer rates with cellphone usage in more than 5,000 people in 13 countries around the globe and what they found was


“They found a loose connection between the highest rate of exposure and glioma, a type of cancer that occurs in the brain and spinal cord.” https://www.healthline.com/health/emf#research


These gliomas were also found on the same side of the head that people used to speak on their phone with, even with all of this evidence however the researchers still determined that there was not conclusive enough evidence to say that cellphone usage played a causative role in cancer in their research subjects.    A smaller study that was done more recently however showed that there was a connection between years of high levels of EMF exposure to an increased risk of a certain type of leukemia found in adults.  They also said that there was an apparent link between EMF and leukemia found in children. However, because they have found that there is a lack of monitoring EMF they are unable to draw conclusions and more research is needed.  


“A review of more than two dozen studies on low-frequency EMFs suggests these energy fields may cause various neurological and psychiatric problems in people. This study found a link between EMF exposure and changes in human nerve function throughout the body, affecting things like sleep and mood.”  ~ https://www.healthline.com/health/emf#research



What about 5G?  


This latest cellular technology actually will send out millimeter waves!


This will be the first time we will exposed to millimeter waves in addition to the microwaves that have been used for the older technology of 2-4G.


With the limited research now available, the 5G will require cell antennae every 1-200meters. This will expose many people to harmful millimeter wave radiation. 


“5G also employs new technologies (e.g., active antennas capable of beam-forming; phased arrays; massive multiple inputs and outputs, known as massive MIMO) which pose unique challenges for measuring exposures. Millimeter waves are mostly absorbed within a few millimeters of human skin and in the surface layers of the cornea. Short-term exposure can have adverse physiological effects in the peripheral nervous system, the immune system and the cardiovascular system. The research suggests that long-term exposure may pose health risks to the skin (e.g., melanoma), the eyes (e.g., ocular melanoma) and the testes (e.g., sterility).” ~ https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/we-have-no-reason-to-believe-5g-is-safe/




5G is a new technology and currently there is no research on its health effects, however there is a ton of evidence which shows the harmful effects of 2-3G. There is not much research either on the effects of 4G as governments have not been quick for funding.  However, we are still seeing an increase in certain types of head and neck tumors, which may be at least in part to cell phone radiation. This increase seems to be consistent with the results from case control studies of tumor risk in those who are “heavy cell phone users.” ~ https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/we-have-no-reason-to-believe-5g-is-safe/


You can read more about this in the article from Scientific America by Joel M. Moskowitz, PhD entitledWe Have No Reason to Believe 5G Is Safe"



What are the Current Guidelines for EMF Exposure?


There is an organization called the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) that maintains guidelines for EMF exposure based on scientific research. The EMFS are measured in what is known as V/M or Volts per meter. The stronger the measurement, the stronger the EMF.  According to the ICNIRP there are no known health effects if your exposure falls below their following guidelines:


  • natural electromagnetic fields (like those created by the sun): 200 V/m

  • power mains (not close to power lines): 100 V/m

  • power mains (close to power lines): 10,000 V/m

  • electric trains and trams: 300 V/m

  • TV and computer screens: 10 V/m

  • TV and radio transmitters: 6 V/m

  • mobile phone base stations: 6 V/m

  • radars: 9 V/m

  • microwave ovens: 14 V/m 


You can check EMF with an EMF meter; these can be purchased online like at Amazon.com etc. However, most aren’t not able to measure very high frequencies and their accuracy can be low.  Some of the bestselling ones are made by Meterk and TriField.


What are some of the Symptoms?


Unfortunately, the side effects that are produced from the EMF’s (electromagnetic frequencies) have been shown to disrupt the body’s normal frequencies. This can in turn affect the biochemical communication processes of our body may even affect our immunity. Research has shown that EMF’s can lead to a significant increase in blood pressure, defective cell metabolism and even DNA damage.  The constant strain of EMF’s on our body can be an invisible but harmful source of stress and fatigue on our system as we were not meant to live in a world surrounded with these kinds of frequencies.Some scientists believe that EMF’s can affect our nervous system function as well as can cause damage to our body’s cells. Unusual growths and cancer can also be symptoms of very high EMF exposure. Other symptoms may include:


  • sleep disturbances, including insomnia

  • headache

  • depression and depressive symptoms

  • tiredness and fatigue

  • dysesthesia (a painful, often itchy sensation)

  • lack of concentration

  • changes in memory

  • dizziness

  • irritability

  • loss of appetite and weight loss

  • restlessness and anxiety

  • nausea

  • skin burning and tingling

  • changes in an electroencephalogram (which measures electrical activity in the brain) ~https://www.healthline.com/health/emf



How can we protect ourselves?   


Limit Exposure: Only get MRI’s, XRAYS Etc. as needed, ask for XRAY shield when getting an examination and use Bentonite Clay after exposure to draw radiation out from the body. Bentonite clay has been in used for thousands of years and it is known to help draw out chemicals, pesticides, radiation and other toxins out of the body via the skin. The brand that we suggest is Even Better Now. This brand is tested to make sure that the clay is pure and free from heavy metals and other toxins like viruses and yeast. They have an adult clay bath and a kid's clay bath.




Keep cellphones away from the head and body when sleeping at night and turn them off.  You can turn the WIFI off in your house when you are not using, if you are very sensitive.   Don’t place the cellphone too close to your body for a long period of time and if needed you can use earbuds or the speaker option on cellphone instead of putting head directly on the cellphone itself.  You can also utilize EMF neutralizing technology. However, most of the so- called EMF protection that exists nowadays is cheaply made or doesn’t work. However, there are still some good companies that make worthwhile products to help protect you and your loved ones from EMF radiation. Harapad also makes great EMF protection for your laptops and other devices such as cellphones, earbuds etc. I use my Harapad to protect myself while on my laptop and it has made a world of difference when I’m on the computer. I can now be on my computer for long periods of time without experiencing symptoms of brain fog, dizziness, and eye fatigue that I used to get.



There’s also a great company called EMP Shield, which also protects your home, automobile, RV and motorbike against the dangers of EMP and lightning outages.


Lastly, a new company has come out called EMFX Secure that is committed to helping protect you and your loved ones in your house and car. Their system of products has been highly researched to bring you the best in EMF protection that truly protects you from all sides and also puts your body into a state of balance and wellbeing. A lot of ppl are concerned about 5G and they are rightly so. Dr Catie Wyman founder of EMFX Secure explains why:


“Research shows that normal exposure to electro-magnetic fields of 60 Hertz are proven to cause many health challenges. At the rate of 60 Hertz, this makes our cells oscillate at approximately 60 cycles per second. Additional studies from Isuzu Hospital in Japan and Michigan State University have also shown that continued exposure to the alternating current of 60 Hz oscillation causes unhealthy cellular proliferation and can lead to increased disease. For example, our body’s optimal health is found between 7 and 10 Hz.”


“To put things into perspective, the new 5G frequency that is using cells, antennas and satellites for conductivity produces between 600 MHz (Mega Hertz) to 60 GHz (Giga Hertz),1 GHz = 1 billion Hertz. That is about one billion times more than the body requires to remain and maintain optimal health. Unfortunately, the 5G technology is capable of reaching sixty billion times the frequency desired for optimal health to humans. Fortunately for us, the groundbreaking, patented technology of EMF-X Secure Systems renders any type of EMF radiation harmless (except X-Rays) from any source at 1 Hertz and beyond.” https://catiesorganics.com/emfx-secure/

 

Dr Catie Wyman its founder suffered from Lyme disease and extreme sensitivity to EMF exposure and spent thousands of dollars to no avail. Since utilizing this technology her health has dramatically improved and she is on mission to help others navigate and live healthy lives in our modern electronic world!




Emf Radiation is unfortunately becoming more of a problem in today's ever-changing world. Unfortunately, with all the benefits of technology there are proponents who believe that there are also dangers to our health. Fortunately, there are more companies producing solutions to help our bodies adapt and stay in health and well-being. Support your body today with protection against EMF.
