9 Simple Ways To Reduce Your EMF Exposure
So - you got a cell phone, and all that this implies. What does that mean? Well, it means that you have a very powerful gadget right in your hands! It gives you access to your peeps, to current events and universal information - right at your fingertips.
But, it also means you have a mobile cell phone tower constantly emitting EMF radiation close to your person.
Did you know that even though there is a constant request for EMF radiation assessments of cell phone towers, people are already carrying around their own cell towers 24 hours a day - in their smartphones? It is a true fact.
Your Cell Phone Is Responsible for 50% of your Radiation Exposure
Estimates indicate that your radiation exposure from a cell phone tower is 20%, while your smartphone is responsible for 50% or more of your exposure to EMF radiation.
Towers are more visible and big and look very radiation capable, yet our cell phones - though they are small, hand-sized, and harmless looking - are the highest source of exposure to our manmade EMFs in this society.
Does that mean we should ditch our phones and go back to the old rotary phone set up? Don’t be ridiculous! That will never happen. What we need to do instead is find the right way to use these wonderful gadgets without the exposure to all this EMF stuff. Why is this so critical?
EMF Radiation is all around us, everywhere we go. It is in the light from our sun, from the Earth’s core and from the space around our planet as well. There is just no getting around that - and we wouldn’t want to. It is the energy that keeps everything working and living on an everyday basis.
Enter the age of electricity and indoor lighting and now cell phones and iPads and computers, oh my! So much more EMF radiation is floating around us now than nature ever intended.
EMFs are a natural part of our planet, unfortunately, the FDA does not consider EMFs a detriment to people’s health.
Why Should We Be Concerned In The First Place?
EMFs - although they are naturally occurring, are a powerful force to be reckoned with.
There is High EMF radiation in the form of highly harmful gamma rays, ultra-violet (UV) rays, etc. These are ionizing forms of radiation which have the ability to remove a single ion from the atoms in our cells. (That’s like taking the wrong piece of wood out of a Jenga game. Everything starts to fall apart!)
There is Low EMF radiation which occurs in our cell phones, microwaves, light fixtures, computers and various other smart appliances and gadgets that add very low EMF waves. However, extended exposure will - over time, create abnormalities in the very cells in our bodies - even though they do not de-ionize our cells, there is a lot of stuff prolonged exposure can do such as:
- Decreased mental performance
- Insomnia and sleep disturbances
- Brain fog
- Hormonal imbalances
- Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
- Weakened immunity
- Stress, irritability
- Rashes or hives
- Premature aging.
- Neurodegenerative diseases ie: Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) to name a few.
- Increased cancer risks
- Decreased fertility - EMFs can alter cellular homeostasis, endocrine function and fetal development.
- Decrease of sperm count in semen. In a 2014 study by the University of Exeter it was shown that normal sperm movement fell by 8% when exposed to cell phone radiation.
- Western sperm count has shown a 59% reduction between 1973 to 2011.
- Birth rates have been falling for decades, but took a sharp decline beginning around 2010 - 3 years after the 1st iPhone was released.
- In 2016, the fertility rate in the U.S. dropped to only 62 live births per every 1,000 women.
- Yes, it is true that these symptoms can be from other sources as well, but rest assured, if there is a pre-existing ailment or disease, prolonged exposure to EMFs have a tendency to make things worse.
In addition to our current 2G, 3G and 4G networks that emit low EMFs, (frequency range of 0.7 to 2.7 GHz), the new ‘fandangled’ network on the block is the up and coming 5G with so much more powerful rays being emitting, (ranging upwards of 80GHz!) - that it will take tons more 5G towers than the ones we’ve already got.
Currently, our cell phone towers are just that -- towers. Big and colossal and pretty far away from highly populated areas. But with the 5G network, it will take many more smaller cell phone towers - even smaller than a backpack, but there needs to be one every 100 - 200 meters in order to get all those powerful 5G rays coming at your gadget.
This is a bit alarming. Fortunately, we have a bit of time until that comes to full fruition.
8 Simple Ways To Reduce Your EMF Exposure
And these are very simple solutions! Yay! Let’s list the most effective and common sense ones right now:
- Avoid body contact with cell phone and computers. (Most cell phone manufacturers recommend keeping at least 10mm space between you and your phone.)
- *So don’t stash your phone in your sports bra, or your pants pocket!
- Buy an EMF protection cell phone case - making sure you choose one that has been tested by an accredited lab. (Careful! There are imposters out there!)
- Don’t sleep with your cell phone any closer than 6 feet away. A great tactic is to place your phone on airplane mode to reduce the levels of radiation.
- Turn off WiFi at night - if possible.
- Use hands free while talking on your smartphone and text whenever possible.
- Avoid using cell phones when the signal is low. It will take more energy (EMFs) to find a signal.
- Avoid using cell phones while driving or in trains or buses. The metal will make your phone emit more powerful EMFs trying to get out of there and reach a cell tower to bounce off of.
- Put bare feet on the ground and allow them to soak up Earth’s negatively-charged electrons. These help to remove anything harmful, from heavy metals and all pollution, to trans-fats - and reduces inflammation, (also a big cause of diseases today). The Earth’s electrons act like a magnetic mop, cleaning up positively-charged, inflammation-causing electrons and creating balance in your personal electrical circuitry.
