Electromagnetic Radiation Exposure

So the question that arises is: How do you know if your getting too much Electromagnetic Radiation exposure? There are conflicting ideas about levels of exposure and whether or not they affect health. Here's some info about different guidelines that currently exist. 

From Alternative Magnetic Therapy . com

How much EMF exposure is too much for you?

The medical and electric power communities have differing views on EMF exposure health effects. But they all agree on one thing: There is no minimum daily requirement for EMF.

In other words, no amount of EMF exposure can be considered safe. However, some voluntary guidelines exist.
  • Russian researchers believe 1/1000ths of mG (milliGauss) should be the standard.
  • In the US, where the usual background level of 60 Hz magnetic field is 0.5 mG, most states have adopted a 3 mG cutoff point.
  • The US Environmental Protection Agency proposes a safety standard of 1 mG.
  • Sweden has set a maximum safety limit of 1 mG.
  • When electricians try to solve a magnetic field problem they do their best to drop the level to 1 mG or below (Robert O. Becker, MD, in Cross Currents: The Perils of Electro pollution, 1990)
  • Dr Nancy Wertheimer, a PhD epidemiologist who has been studying EMF exposure for 20 years, suggests a cutoff point of 1 mG.
  • Health studies indicate that electromagnetic fields over 100 mG can most certainly produce health effects. Fields as low as 1 mG can be dangerous if body exposure is for a long period of time. (1991)
  • The state of Florida in US has set a 250 mG maximum on the edge of their power line right-of-ways. (1991)
  • Several international authorities (such as International Commission on Non-lionizing Radiation and European Committee for Electro technical Standardization) have also set safety limits for public and occupational EMF exposure to 50-60 Hz.

"The United States is wired with 500,000 miles of high-voltage power lines. Industry, government, and military depend on 250,000 microwave relay links. Airliners see and are seen via radar. 9,000,000 broadcasting transmitters and microwave relay stations, and 30,000,000 CB radios flood our airways. Industry employs 35,000,000 electromagnetic devices. As a result, a typical American now gets a daily dosage of electromagnetic radiation up to 200 million times more intense than what his ancestors took in from the sun, stars, and other natural sources."

Metal In Your Body Raises EMF Sensitivity!

More EMF News from Dr. Mercola!

This article from Dr. Mercola talks about EMF Radiation sensitivity and how heavy metals in your body can increase your reaction to EMF around you.

Heavy Metal Toxicity Raises Your Risk of Electromagnetic Sensitivity

By Dr. Mercola
Electomagnetic fields (EMFs) are all around us, no matter where you live these days.  They emanate from power lines, televisions, household electrical wiring, appliances and microwaves.
They come from cell phones, cell phone towers and wireless Internet connections.
It is estimated that 3-8 percent of populations in developed countries experience serious electrohypersensitivity symptoms, while 35 percent experience mild symptoms, according to Dr. Thomas Rau, medical director of the world-renowned Paracelsus Clinic in Switzerland.1
There are a number of factors that influence the degree to which you may be affected by EMFs.
For example, your body weight, body-mass index, bone density, and water and electrolyte levels can alter the conductivity and biological reactivity to EMFs. Heavy metals in your brain also act as micro-antennas, concentrating and increasing reception of EMF radiation.

How Heavy Metal Toxicity May Make Electrohypersensitivity Worse

The issue of heavy metal toxicity in relation to electromagnetic toxicity may be one of the most significant. According to Dr. Yoshiaki Omura’s research, the more your system is contaminated with heavy metals from silver amalgam fillings, eating contaminated fish, living downstream from coal burning power plants and so forth, the more your body becomes a virtual antenna that actually concentrates radiation, making it far more destructive.2
 Likewise, any kind of metal implants and/or amalgam (silver) tooth fillings will significantly increase reception of microwaves, and the mircrocurrents from cell phones and other ambient fields. In case you’re wondering how to detect electrohypersensitivity, the five most common symptoms are:
  1. Skin itch/rash/flushing/burning, and/or tingling
  2. Confusion/poor concentration, and/or memory loss
  3. Fatigue and weakness
  4. Headache
  5. Chest pain and heart problems

Many people are complaining about unexplained pains and fatigue as we continue to fill our homes and work spaces with electronic devices emitting EMF radiation. There are solutions to the radiation problem and they can be used to reduce or eliminate your exposure.

Sick of Wi-Fi: The debate over wireless safety is not going away

Every week now, Dr. Riina Bray sees two or three new patients with a similar array of ailments and ends up blaming the same, controversial cause.
Suffering from stabbing headaches, “brain fog,” tinnitus or extreme fatigue, their symptoms seem linked to exposure to Wi-Fi routers, cellphone towers and other sources of radio-frequency radiation, says the environmental health specialist at Toronto’s prestigious Women’s College Hospital.
Dr. Bray’s clinic may be the only mainstream medical facility in Canada that routinely treats patients for a condition known as electromagnetic hypersensitivity. She recently held a seminar to educate physicians about what she calls a major and fast-growing public-health menace, paralleling the explosion of wireless technology in Western society.
“Every year we are getting more and more people coming in,” said Dr. Bray. “I’m very concerned, because the stories are very, very compelling … These are not crazy people. There is a huge, huge problem.”

People have different levels of sensitivity to electromagnetic signals and the possible radiation from these devices.. Some are not affected by EMF while others are developing major health symptoms. Check your own home for the presence of EMF and the possible exposure to you and loved ones.

Symptoms of Electromagnetic Radiation Exposure

Electromagnetic Radiation Exposure!

This article from Natural News talks about Electromagnetic Radiation levels now and in the past. Check out the article and see if you notice any of the symptoms present in your body or of your children.

Levels of electromagnetic radiation we are exposed to today are billions of times higher than our ancestors

This is the claim of Dr. Kerry Crofton, PhD. She goes on to say, "We don't have to give up all electronic devices, but we do need to use them differently. First, we need to understand that the government standards we assume are protecting us are thousands of times too lenient, and there are biological effects from these 'safe' levels." The effects of these exposures are particularly an issue for concern for our children.

Some of these effects are thought to include:

• Unexplained headaches/nosebleeds
• Autism
• Insomnia
• Nausea/dizziness
• Anxiousness/ heart palpitations/other 'unexplained' cardiac symptoms
• Ringing ears
• Immune suppression
• Electro-sensitivity
• Children's leukemia
• An increased risk for brain cancer/neurological disorders

Children are at a greater disadvantage than adults due to thinner skulls, smaller brains, and the potential of long-term exposure. The effects for children expand to include retarded learning and performance impairment.

David Carpenter, MD, Director of the Institute for Health and the Environment, School of Public Health, University of Albany, New York, believes, along with many other public health experts, the current scientific evidence shows there will be widespread cancers ahead as a consequence of using cell phones and WiFi without any restrictions.

Unnecessary Exposure

The Northside Independent School District in Texas is on the verge of utilizing a radio frequency ID system in two of its schools. This is another source of electromagnetic radiation exposure for children as this system emits dangerous radio waves. The hope is to implement the strategy to track kids at all of the district's 112 campuses covering approximately 100,000 youth.

We don't know that all of these devices are safe and the ongoing debate is nothing to dismiss. Electromagnetic Radiation is a real concern and it's best to protect yourself and loved ones from the possibility that that the radiation levels from electronics is dangerous to your health.

Does Your Child Have a Cell Phone?

Children Have A High Risk From EMF!

This article was posted late last year but the message is a strong argument for protecting your child from EMF! - Home of the Daily and Sunday Express Express - Breaking news, sport and showbiz from the World's Greatest Newspaper


Wednesday November 9,2011

By Nathan Rao

URGENT action is needed to curb childrens’ use of mobile phones because of fears they can cause cancer and a host of other illnesses, experts said last night.

Children ‘are at risk’ from mobiles
An estimated eight out of 10 youngsters aged between seven and 11 now have their own mobile and ownership is also spiralling among those even younger.
But British charity MobileWise says use of the gadgets must be restricted because the young are more at risk from potentially dangerous radiation.
The campaign group is calling on the Government and the mobile phone industry to step up warnings over the devices.
Following an in-depth study of 200 scientific papers, MobileWise says health chiefs are ignoring negative findings and are not doing enough to warn parents of the dangers.
MobileWise director Vicky Fobel said: “We have a choice. We can either continue to ignore the mounting evidence of risks and do nothing until we have incontrovertible proof that mobiles can damage health or we can take note of this evidence, even if it is still inconclusive, and act to protect children before it is too late.”

MobileWise director Vicky Fobel
The study claims children’s brains can absorb twice the amount of radiation as adults from mobile phones because their skulls are smaller and thinner. It says children who use mobiles are also more likely to develop health problems in adulthood due to a longer exposure during their lifetime.
Dr Lennart Hardell, professor of oncology and cancer epidemiology at Orebro University Hospital, in Sweden, has led several studies on the subject.
He said: “This timely report draws attention to the large body of evidence which links prolonged phone use to health hazards such as brain tumours.
“While further research is still needed, there is certainly enough evidence to warrant urgent action by public health agencies to protect the public, especially children, who are significantly more vulnerable.”

The news about children's skull thickness and your children's exposure to EMF should be a concern. Don't let wireless industry trick you into thinking all is well. Protect yourself and your loved ones from this possible danger.

"Cell Phone Right to Know Act" in Congress

As the debate continues about cell phones and Cancer, Democrat Rep. Dennis Kucinich introduced a federal bill on Aug. 6th that would create a national research program to study cell phone radiation levels  and more importantly put warning labels on cell phones.
H.R. 6358, the Cell Phone Right to Know Act, a bill to grant a consumer’s right-to-know by providing for warning labels on cell phones would also require the Environmental Protection Agency to update the standards for specific absorption rate. SAR is the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using a cell phone.

Congress introduces new cell phone radiation warning label law

Congressman Dennis Kucinich, a democrat from Ohio, yesterday introduced a new federal law that would place warning labels on mobile phones and create a U.S. research program to better study overall radiation levels emanating from the devices.

Law number H.R. 6358, named the 'Cell Phone Right to Know Act' would also require the EPA to update the standards for specific absorption rate, or SAR, the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the human body when using a cell phone. "It took over 25 years for scientists to be able to say for sure that smoking caused cancer. During all that time, the false impression created by industry supporters was that there was no connection between smoking and cancer, a deception which cost many lives," said Kucinich.
"And while we're still waiting for scientists to sort out the various health effects of cell phone radiation, we must allow consumers to have enough data to select with less radiation. As long as cell phone users may be at increased risk of cancer or reproductive issues, American citizens deserve the right to know the exact radiation levels of any cell phone," said Kucinich.

The Congressman is courageous for bringing up a matter that is hotly contested by the wireless industry who is making massive amounts of money in the cell phone and wireless business. Americans and all citizens of Mother Earth have the right to know about the possibility that Cell Phones may cause Cancer

EMF Radiation From Motorcycles?

We are surrounded by EMF RADIATION in our daily lives. Though there are many who don't believe that this invisible force is a cause for concern, it is undeniable that it exists. We have access to devices that show us the radiation can come from the most unexpected sources. Here's a post from PRWeb about the possible exposure to your body from motorcycles.

Awarded Motorcycle Cancer Book Exposes ELF EMF Radiation - Rider Health Safety

Patent-granted author Randall Dale Chipkar won multiple awards for The Motorcycle Cancer Book. Chipkar discovered a motorcycle-melatonin link generating worldwide attention for rider health safety. Motorcycle seat ELF EMF magnetic field radiation is flooding millions of motorcyclists. Concern includes prostate cancer, colon cancer, breast cancer, colitis, diabetes, pregnancy issues, etc.

Mississauga (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
Canadian motorcyclist Randall Dale Chipkar won international awards for The Motorcycle Cancer Book. Chipkar discovered a motorcycle-melatonin link generating worldwide attention for rider health safety. Motorcycle seat ELF EMF magnetic field radiation is flooding millions of motorcyclists. Concern includes prostate cancer, colon cancer, breast cancer, colitis, diabetes, pregnancy issues, etc.
Chipkar wrote Motorcycle Cancer?, also known as The Motorcycle Cancer Book, to expose the truth about extremely low frequency electromagnetic field (ELF EMF) radiation penetrating up through motorcycle seats. “No one, especially pregnant women and cancer survivors, wants cancer-controversial magnetic radiation flooding their entire body every time they ride,” says Chipkar.
Motorcycle Cancer? won the 2011 eLit Health/Medical Bronze Award and Silver Medal for Randall Dale Chipkar, the Health eBook Award-2012 International Book Awards and the IBA Health: Men's Health Finalist Award.
“I am grateful for the awards and international recognition. Consumer safety is priority,” says Chipkar. The USA, Canada and the UK have granted the RiderSaver trademark to Chipkar for ELF EMF magnetic field shielding motorcycle seats.
“Motorcycle oscillating-current electrical systems can generate excessive ELF EMF radiation that penetrates through steel, lead, aluminum, tin, etc. The enveloping magnetic field radiation invades vital gastrointestinal and bone marrow melatonin, as well as the breast, heart, lungs, prostate, colon and neighboring organs,” Chipkar says.

It is probably a good idea to distance your self from any type of EMF Radiation and use protection of some sort where you know that you are getting some exposure. You wouldn't expect such possible harm to come from one of our most coveted pastimes but it's a prime example of the need for more information about the radiation around us. The meter is a simple device that can be used anywhere. Here are some examples of meters and information about EMF.
