Electronic devices have become an inseparable part of our daily life. There are a variety of gadgets that have helped us to live in a better way and have made our work easier. But there are many harmful effects of these devices as well, one of them being the EMF radiation emitted from these devices which can affect your health severely.
The tissues in our body that are directly exposed to the radiations get excited, or in other words heated up. Studies conducted by IARC, a part of WHO have revealed that increased use of the electronic gadgets such as cell-phones and also other amenities of modern life such as wifi.
The symptoms that you may experience due to the dangers of EMF radiation are as follows:
• You can also observe skin problems like facial prickling, rashes and burning sensations.
• You may experience a number of problems related to the nervous system such as insomnia, excessive stress and fatigue.
• Pains and aches in the muscles can also be caused due to EMF radiations.
• You may also have problems in digestion.
• Anxiety, depression and other mental problems can also be caused.
• Infertility problems also have EMF radiation as their root cause.
• EMF radiation has also been found to cause different types of cancer and even Leukemia in children.
• Possibilities of a few minor symptoms such as problems in the ears, noses and eyes also cannot be ignored.
As you can see, the hazards of EMF fields are many and it is quite important to protect yourself and your family from these hazards.
So here are the measures that you can take for reducing the EMF fields at your home:
Use shielding wall paints: Shielding paints must be applied on the walls of your home which are common with the neighbors.
Shielding solutions for cellphone towers: If there is a cellphone tower within 300 meters of your home, you need to take shielding measures for that as well. This is because you will get direct EMF radiations from the towers in this case. However, if there are buildings between the tower and your home, the effect is automatically reduced and you don’t need to worry much about it.
Solutions for cordless phones: The EMF field generated around a cordless phone can affect your health to a large extent. So it will be better to use ordinary landline phones instead of DECT cordless phones. However, if you can’t do without the cordless ones, you can use low radiation phones or use shields to reduce the effect.
Use non-digital baby alarms: The digital baby alarms used these days have similar working mechanism as the cordless phones and should thus be avoided. You could use the non-digital ones instead, though it might be a bit difficult to find them.
For wifi: Most of us have installed wifi connection at our home. So what we should do in this respect is install hard wired routers. Linksys cable/DSL router, Netgear ADLS2 modem router should be used together with a dLan High Speed Ethernet Installation here.
Transformers: Transformers help in converting high voltage to low voltage for running different digital appliances. The extra voltage is radiated in the form of energy and heat. This is harmful for our body and can cause several negative impacts. You should always keep these transformers at a minimum distance of 2feet from the body.
Voltage: Your body has a voltage and it is maximum when you sleep. But it should be equalized with the earth’s natural Schumann based electric field that is under 350mV and kept stable at 2mV.
Replace old cathode ray monitors: Bid goodbye to the old cathode ray monitors and bring new flat screen monitors instead.
Electromagnetic field is also created due to hairdryers, vacuum cleaners, irons, televisions and other such appliances. Now, it is not really possible for us to live without these appliances. So, what you can do is use them in such a manner effect of EMF is minimized.
So these are the dangers of EMF and ways to protect yourself from it!
