In the beginning
of the 21 century - Information Era - researchers had discovered that
Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) are not very friendly for us.
EMF are likely causing an
increasing number of chronic and fatal diseases including leukemia,
brain cancer and ALS.
The EMF are not in themselves
dangerous, the are not devastating our body cells like X-Rays, but our
Immune System is recognizing them as an enemy like a virus or bacteria.
Fighting with them surrounding us everywhere makes our Immune System
overtired. Overtired Immune Systems are not able to handle all tasks
and are unable to completely defend our bodies - e.g. catching cancer
Let us present to you important
facts and information.
What is EMF?
Even though electric and magnetic
fields are present around operating appliances and power lines, more
recent interest has focused on the potential health effects of electric
fields. This is because some epidemiological studies have suggested
that there may be an association between increased cancer risks and
electric fields as well as other chronic diseases like Alzheimer,
Diabetics, Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis and more.
The term "EMF" refers to all kind
of man-made and natural Electric and Magnetic fields. Most common and
known type of EMF are 60 and 50 hertz fields associated with
alternating-current electrical power. These fields are distinct from
other types of fields associated with the electromagnetic spectrum,
such as AM/FM radio, television, cell phones, sun light.
Fields associated with cell phones
and cell phone base stations Cellular phones uses radio frequency to
communicate with other phones. Radio frequency is used by them, AM/FM
radio, television, pagers, and other wireless communication devices.
Those types EMF operates at significantly higher frequencies (up to 300
gigahertz) compares to power lines and electrical appliances (50 or 60
Today most of us use cellular
phones everyday. That creates concern about exposition on the radiation
from cellular phones and cellular base stations. Certain radio
frequency fields cause thermal effects (i.e., heating) at high exposure
Researchers are investigating the
possibility that radio frequency fields associated with cellular
equipment may cause other adverse effects (i.e., effects other than
heating, such as cancer).
Most researchers agree that more
research is needed to evaluate potential long-term effects of radio
frequency fields from cellular phones.
Some current scientific research
does provide evidence that EMF can cause cancer or other diseases,
other are stating that number of today chronic diseases are related to
exposition on the different types of stress including EMF.
The California Project
Fragments from White Papers:
“...Since 1993, the California
Department of Health Sciences has led a project initiated by the
California Public Utilities Commission titled “The California EMF
Project.” The project cost $7 million, and is now complete.
In 2002 the California Department
of Health Services (CDHS) released the final EMF Report. This report
summarized an evaluation conducted by three CDHS reviewers who examined
possible associations between magnetic fields and 13 health conditions.
The reviewers reported their opinions regarding the degree of
confidence that the statistical associations between magnetic fields
and the various health conditions might be casual.
The causation standard is more
rigorous because it demands the cause effect finding, and mandates that
there is no evidence of bias, errors, or confounding factors.
- Magnetic fields likely cause childhood and adult leukemia, adult
brain cancer, spontaneous abortions, and ALS.
- They possibly cause childhood brain cancer, female and male
breast cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, suicide, and heart problems.
- They are unlikely to universally impact all types of cancer or
reproductive failures other than spontaneous abortions
- There is insufficient information to determine if magnetic fields
cause clinical depression.
- Animal studies show that magnetic fields at low intensities have
profound effects on selective biological organisms.
- The report finds that, with respect to the diseases possibly or
likely caused by EMF “even a slight additional lifetime risk could be
of concern to regulators, who already regulate other environmental
concerns that convey even lower risks”.
- The report notes a full mechanistic understanding does not now
exist to explain why EMF could cause serious disease. The report goes
on to note, however, “The lack of mechanistic understanding is
initially … common in harmful agents.”
- Once the benchmark 2 to 16 mG intensities of EMF are passed,
risks do not appear to increase substantially as EMF increases.

The following graph shows the
Project’s range of the estimates of probabilities that EMF causes
specific diseases. “Prior confidence” is the researchers’ estimate of
the overall disease probability assigned before learning about the
recent research results. We have characterized probabilities greater
than 50% as “likely.”
How may I be exposed to EMF?
We are exposed to EMF at work, at home,
and any other place where electrical power is generated, distributed,
or used (includes satellite signals, radio, TV and other communication
In addition we are exposed to
natural EMF like Geopathic Stress, Hartman Grid and other Global Lines
Magnetic field levels vary
depending on the amount of current flow. Fields are typically highest
during warm summer months, when electric consumption is the highest
(i.e., due to the use of air conditioners and other appliances that
consume high amounts of electricity).
The magnetic field from the power
line level drops quickly. In fact, levels at distances of 60 m - 100m
(200-300 feet) are often comparable or lower than levels from household
sources (e.g., appliances, wiring) in many homes. It is not making them
more dangerous than appliances, but not less either (when we are in
that distance - 60m - 100m [200-300 feet] from them).
When are the EMF dangerous?
25 years of
intensive study regarding health and safety measurements brought
Swedish government to the conscious to establish a safety limit for
exposure to ELF magnetic field at 2.5 mG and VLF magnetic fields at
only 0.25 mG. The Swedish standard is generally accepted throughout the
In plain language it means that
person, who exceeds the limits could be at risk for developing health
problems which can range from headaches, fatigue, and dizziness to skin
rashes, miscarriage, leukemia, and cancer.
Even though the controversy of
conflicting scientific studies persists, it seems strange that
cigarettes and alcohol are packaged with warnings we already know
about, chemical and nutrition facts regarding content of foods must
appear on the labels, but NO
ANY LABEL INFORM YOU ABOUT EXPOSITION ON THE EMF FROM THE EQUIPMENT YOU
ARE USING. Please
check the EMF exposition table for average home appliances. It is very,
How can I measure EMF in my home?
Since magnetic field levels vary
depending on the current and configuration of the sources, personal
exposures to fields also vary at different times of the day and at
different locations. Direct measurements using a milligauss meter
provide the most accurate and reliable estimates.
1 mG (milligauss) is the common
unit of measurement for magnetic fields. These fields are measured
using an instrument called a milligauss meter. [Microtesla, another
unit of measurement for magnetic fields, is often used in international
settings and research papers. One microtesla (uT) is one-millionth of a
tesla and is equal to 10 mg] You may take yours own measurements by
purchasing a Milligauss meter or Electrosmog Detector directly from us
or by ordering from us such service.
Common areas under
our consideration are:
- Bed - is there wiring in the wall behind your bed that you don't
even know about?
- Kid's room - it is any not necessary source of EMF, haw far from
the area most used by the kids and how strong?
- Living room - what is average EMF in the room, how much EMF is
radiating from your TV, how far from TV is the safe zone.
- House - how much EMF are you and your family getting from the
power lines from the street?
- House - how strong lines of natural radiation crossing your
house, where you are exposed to them, if your beds and resting areas
are free from them?
Remember that EMF goes right
through doors and walls. Determine how far you must stay away from the
EMF sources in your home & work environment to achieve less than
2.5 mG of exposure... the microwave oven, the alarm clock, the
computer, and so on. Basically all of the expositions we are collecting
every day are counting. Our Immune system fighting with them and every
exposition to EMF is taking a portion of energy which could be used in
the better way.
What can be done to limit EMF exposures?
There are a number of ways to
reduce exposures to EMF. Some are as easy as standing back from an
appliance when it is in use. Remember that magnetic fields from
appliances drop off dramatically in strength with increasing distance
from the source.
Other EMF reduction steps, such as
correcting a household wiring problem, are worth doing anyway for
safety reasons. But what about more costly actions, such as burying
power lines or moving out of a home?
