What Are EMF's?
The abbreviation EMF’s stands for electromagnetic fields, also referred to as electromagnetic frequencies. EMF’s are produced by any electrical device that runs off of an AC current whether that be plug in, wireless or battery operated.
WHY SHOULD I BE CONCERNED ABOUT EMF'S?
In order to understand EMF’s, one must understand that the term EMF is a generic term that is often used to describe the non-native EMF's produced by man. Not the one's generally produced naturally within our enviroment from the planet or the beating hearts of all species. Non-native EMF's are composed of several different frequencies, they are as follows: magnetic, electric, radio, microwave and voltage spikes or better known as dirty electricity. All of which can produce harmful radiation within your space.
WHAT EFFECTS DO THEY HAVE ON HUMAN HEALTH?
You know why the airline captain tells you to turn off your electronic devices during take off and landing? The EMF’s generated by our cell phones and laptops wreak havoc on the plane's navigational system and they can wreak havoc on
our internal cellular system as well.
EMF’s have been studied and described by many health care professionals, scientists, electrical engineers and environmentalists to be toxic to human health, animal species and our environment. There are many studies that now suggest that EMF’s are a known possible human carcinogen and that the sudden onset of Wi-Fi hotspots, cell phones, computers, smart devices, as well as the millions of antennas popping up all over the globe are partially to blame for the sudden spikes in various illnesses and cancers that we are now seeing today.
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS TO
HIGH OR PROLONGED EMF'S EXPOSURE?
Some scientists estimate we are now exposed daily to 100 million times the EMF radiation of our grandparents.
Research shows that these fields cause dehydration and calcium efflux within our cells which in turn have a significant disruptive effect on our body's ability to produce energy, as well as our cellular communication systems.
Man-made EMF’s magnifies the body's "fight or flight" stress responses which will impair our body’s natural abilities to digest food, absorb nutrients, detoxify,
our sleep cycles, to produce hormones, fight infection and heal. This has become such a concern in our society today that those who claim to be sensitive to EMF’s
have been classified by medical professionals as sufferers of EHS (electro-hypersensitivity).
EHS was first discovered in 1932 by the German medical doctor Erwin Schliephake who documented patients having the following unusual symptoms when exposed to radio towers:
• Headaches to the point of intolerability
• Severe tiredness and fatigue during the day
• Fitful sleep at night
• High susceptibility to infection
However, research now suggests that EMF’s exposure can possibly contribute to the development of any of the following...
• Blood pressure & digestive problems.
• Fatigue, joint and limb pain.
• Nervousness, sleep disorders and weakness.
• Altered adrenal hormone levels.
• Disturbed carbohydrate metabolism.
• Altered EEG, structural changes in the brain, liver & spleen in animal tests.
• Cardiac arrhythmias.
• Headache, dizziness, irritability, chest pain, & difficulty breathing.
• Decrease in newborns & irreversible
infertility in mice after 5 generations.
• Association between increased incidences of childhood leukaemia & mortality through RF fields.
• Autism ADHD / Behavioural.
• Food Allergies & multiple chemical sensitivities.
• Alzheimer’s & Parkinson’s
• Thyroid Dysfunction
• Cancer or Autoimmunity.
• Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity
Some estimate or propose that as high as 30% of the population may experience one or more of the common signs, symptoms, biological effects or medical ailments from prolonged exposure to EMF’s. However, 100% of the population is affected biologically by EMF pollution.
At first you may not feel anything at all because the progession may happen gradually. In fact, so slowly which is why it has been easily compared to smoking
or asbestos exposure which means the effects may take years or even decades to come.
"The time to deal with the harmful biological and health effects is long overdue. To protect our children, ourselves and our ecosystem, we must reduce exposure by establishing more protective guidelines.“

"Radio frequency radiation and other forms of electromagnetic pollution are harmful at orders of magnitude well below existing guidelines. Science is one of the tools society uses to decide health policy. In the case of telecommunications equipment, such as cell phones, wireless networks, cell phone antennas, PDAs, and portable phones, the science is being ignored. Current guidelines urgently need to be re-examined by government and reduced to reflect the state of the science. There is an emerging public health crisis at hand and time is of the essence.”

The WHO/International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B), based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer, associated with wireless phone use.

“People say, we evolved in an electromagnetic field...but not this field. There is now 10 11 - 10 18 x more microwave radiation then throughout planetary history. That's a billion billion time's higher and this happened in evolutionary time in a blink of an eye. It happened in my life time. I was born in 1975 and it hasn't seen one generation from cradle to grave and when someone ask's me in medicine, is this safe? I have a quick think to myself, has this seen one generation through and if it hasn't, I don't think you can fully answer that question."
