Technology is amazing, isn’t it? It’s all around us, and for most of us, it is an integral part of our daily lives. The downside is that technology may be affecting your health. From headaches to fatigue, brain fog to sleep problems and many other health issues, including an increased risk of cancer.
EMF (Electro-Magnetic Fields) exposure caused by technology such as mobile phones, computers, FitBits and much more may be the culprit to your health issues. Ps. This is serious. EMFs are a form of radiation…
What are EMF?
EMF is a broad term which includes electric fields generated by charged particles, magnetic fields generated by charged particles in motion, and radiated fields such as TV, radio, and microwaves. Electric fields are measured in units of volts per meter or V/m. Magnetic fields are measured in milli-Gauss or mG.
You can measure the EMF in your house and caused by electric goods and devices by using a digital EMF radiation meter, and some of them aren’t too expensive, either.
Just Because Something is For Sale Doesn’t Mean It Is SAFE…
As our governments continue to hurdle towards incredible feats in health and safety ridiculousness, one would think that everyday consumer items such as mobile phones, laptops, tablets, TVs etc. that posed potential health risks (and severe ones at that), would simply not be for sale. WRONG. (In 2015 the University of Birmingham banned Classics graduates from throwing their mortar boards in the air, so you know…priorities for our health and well-being, right?).
It seems strange that cigarettes and alcohol are packaged with warnings we already know about, and the sodium, fat, and cholesterol content of foods must appear on the labels, but NO ONE TELLS YOU THAT THE AVERAGE HAIR DRYER, VACUUM CLEANER, OR CAN OPENER YOU USE EMITS AN AMAZING 300 EMF mG OR MORE, WHEN 2.5mG IS WHAT’S CONSIDERED SAFE!!!

EMF & the Direct Impact on Your HealthElectronic pollution, as a result from all our electrical equipment, has a direct impact on our bodies.
Ann Marie Gittleman, author of Zapped: Why Your Cell Phone Shouldn’t Be Your Alarm Clock and 1,268 Ways to Outsmart Electric Pollution discusses in her book how as living beings, we are also energy sources that have electrical forces that run through our bodies all of the time, naturally.
Every device that plugs into an electrical socket, power lines, substations, transformers, handheld electronic devices emit EMFs when in use. And it is these EMF frequencies that ultimately interfere with the flow of our natural energy that flows through our bodies. (In Chinese medicine, this is refered to as ‘Qi’ – which loosely translates to ‘life force’).
It is this disruption that can create imbalance in our bodies, manifesting in a variety of health issues and disease.
Ps. There is already vast concerns regarding the health impacts of the upcoming 5G wireless technology roll out. If you think what we’re dealing with now is bad? You ain’t seen nothing yet…
Our Bodies are Out of Balance
As each bio-chemical process in our bodies involves specific choreographed movements of EMF-sensitive atoms, molecules, and ions, the EMF disruption is vastly affecting a whole host of health issues, and on a cellular level. Even the iron in our blood is also affected by EMF, as well as the proper function of nerves, blood vessels, skin, and other organs – even the DNA of chromosomes.
In other words, our bodies are completely out of balance now, due to the constant barrage of EMF pollution.
These symptoms are referred to as EHS: Electromagnetic Hyper-Sensitivity symptoms.
EHS Symptoms include:
- Prickling or tingling sensation across the face or other parts of the body
- Fitful and restless sleep/insomnia
- Behavioural issues
- Warm or burning sensation in the face somewhat like feeling sunburnt
- Extreme dryness of mucus membranes such as the back of the throat and eyes
- Swelling of the mucus membranes such as nose, throat, ears and sinuses without any infectious cause
- Problems with concentration, lack of focus, loss of memory and dizziness
- Feeling of impending influenza (flu) that somehow never quite breaks out
- Headaches and nausea
- Teeth and jaw pains
- Aches and pains in muscles and joints
- Cardiac palpitations
The term ‘dirty electricity’ is in reference to EMFs contaminated by high frequency distortions. A few examples are:
- Battery chargers
- Smart meters
- Plasma TVs
- Fluorescent Lights
Dr Milham is the scientist that first alerted the world to the link between EMFs and their direct correlation to human disease and has written the book Dirty Electricity: Electrification and the Diseases of Civilization. He has directly correlated how electrical pollution has direct links to the four biggest inflammatory diseases: cardiovascular disease, neurological disorders, diabetes and cancer. Dr Milham also correlates health issues such as as asthma and even obesity to EMF exposure.

EMF Short & Longer-Term Health Risks
Let’s face it. The likelihood these days of having just fleeting, short-term exposures to EMFs are probably quite rare. Take a few moments to consider what is currently in your home and where you work…
Unless you are Amish, or are living a life of zero electricity. (And in that case, you wouldn’t be reading this, would you?! :)), if you have any electricity and electric equipment, not to mention Wi-Fi and Bluetooth – you are exposed. And not just ‘exposed’, but under 24/7 sabotage!
Short-Term EMF Exposure
However, just to cover all the basis, a study done by the Anatomisches Institute in Germany, on high-frequency EMFs had “no notable short-term effect on pineal melatonin synthesis in male and female Sprague-Dawley rats and Djungarian hamsters.” They also determined their findings were true for all mammals as well.
Longer-Term EMF Exposure
Remember, at the beginning of this article I stated that we assume that if products are for sale, then they must of have been stringently tested for our safety?
The World Health Organization (WHO) put out a press release in May, 2011 that states that radiation from cell phones can be a carcinogen to humans and, with excessive use, could be linked to brain tumours.
Our brains are absorb EMFs like a sponge, and as mentioned above, there is are direct links to headaches, chronic fatigue, nausea, dizziness, muscle weakness, respiratory and cardiovascular distress, behavioural problems, lack of focus, certain cancers, infertility and much more.
Reasonably concerned about EMF exposure and how it may be affecting your health? You should be! However, there are numerous things that you can do to help reduce your EMF exposure. Why not check out my article, 9 Easy Ways to Reduce EMF Exposure?
