Is Shielding From Electromagnetic Frequencies And 5G Necessary?
Electromagnetic Frequencies (EMFs) What are they?, you may be asking. EMFs are the very frequencies that make modern life possible such as electric house wiring, any electrical mechanism, appliance or microwave-run device. All electrical functions produce EMF fields or non-ionizing radiation as two frequencies: Electric and Magnetic. Each frequency produces negative impacts on the human body and ecosystem thereby contributing to, and/or creating, adverse health effects. Many people suffer with electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) and probably don’t realize it.
Approximately 3% – 5% of people are moderately affected, with another 20-25% of people being slightly affected. Less than 1% of the population is severely affected, but the numbers are rapidly increasing with the exponential rise in EMF pollution in our homes and communities. Even if you do not feel the effects of EMF pollution, your biology is still being damaged by this invisible pollution. Thus, all humans are electro-sensitive to a degree. People with EHS are in some ways lucky because their bodies are telling them to get away from a potent source of man-made environmental pollution. [CJF emphasis]
Common symptoms that indicate electrohypersensitivity include :
- Headaches to the point of intolerability
- Severe tiredness and fatigue during the day
- Fitful sleep at night
- High susceptibility to infection
Primary EHS Symptoms:
- Headaches (particularly tension headaches along the sides of the head and temple area
- Heart palpitations and a pressure in the chest (a feeling that the heart wants to jump out of the chest while at the same time the chest is being stepped upon)
- Skin burning, redness, rashes and tingling (particularly on the face and arms)
- Difficulties sleeping (sleep is interrupted, light, dreamless and leaves the person feeling tired in the morning)
- Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
- Fatigue and tiredness during the day (even after many hours of sleep, tiredness pervades the day)
- Cognitive decline (memory and concentration difficulties – a “brain fog” and feeling that one’s brain has aged 30 years in a short period of time)
- (Dementia will likely skyrocket in a wireless society)
Due to the proliferation of cell phones and towers, smart phones, “smart appliances,” AMI Smart Meters that measure utility usages for electricity, natural gas and water, which emit Radiofrequencies (RFs), the increase in EMFs/RFs has increased exponentially to the point where some scientists feel humans are subjected to over one thousand times greater EMFs than Nature’s background radiation. Back in 2014, Professor Olle Johansson and colleagues contended
Today’s maximum exposure standards are set 1,000,000,000,000,000 (1015) to 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 (1018) times higher than Nature’s background radiation on Earth’s surface to which life on earth has adapted. 
[It’s now 2018 with dramatically more appliances RF exposures, i.e., smart TV, smart household appliances: washers and dryers, remote home monitoring, thermostats, refrigerators, air conditioners, blood pressure dock, Lockiton door locks, baby monitors, LED light bulbs, etc.!
[By the way, routers often are the “triggers” for individuals coming down with EHS.]
[That exposure creates a huge problem for the human body, which is 60 to 70% water. Think of how a microwave oven cooks food. It heats up the water molecules.]
[“Microwaves do most of their work on the water in food, Anantheswaran says. “Water molecules constitute what are known as ‘dipoles,” he explains. “A dipole is sort of like a bar magnet, with a positive pole and a negative pole. The oven’s electromagnetic field oscillates as it passes through the water molecules in the food, changing the polarity of the field and causing the dipole/water molecules to flip themselves in order to be aligned with the new polarity.” Heat is created by the resulting friction of the water molecules reversing direction millions of times a second.” (2) ]
[The above heat aspect will become more evident when 5G is rolled out, as that frequency has infinity for interacting with sweat glands in the body! If you don’t like to sweat, you may not like how your body will function once there are 5G cell towers every 300 to 500 feet wherever you go.]
[“This work shows that the same parts of the human skin that allow us to sweat also respond to 5G radiation much like an antenna that can receive signals. We need the potential adverse health impacts of 5G to be seriously evaluated before we blanket our children, ourselves and the environment with this radiation.” (3) ]
The most probable negative impact upon human health occurs during sleep when EMFs/RFs suppress melatonin production in the brain. Melatonin is a natural cancer “suppressor and fighter.”
There is much more that can be said, which would cover a book’s worth of reporting, but the above gives you the basics to get started in understanding the problems involved with electromagnetic energies and, hopefully, prompt you to do more research and learn how to protect yourself.
Probably the most difficult factors for consumers to understand about EHS and EMFs/RFs exposure are:
- EMFs/RFs and the soon-to-be-emitted 5G millimeter waves are STRESSES, the same as any other type of stress you have to deal with but these you cannot resolve because you don’t have control over them and how they are emitted to be constant stresses for everyone.
- Human skin is affected and before the invention of electricity, there were no voltages [a man-made electric force] on the skin.
Basics in protection
There are numerous websites, devices, and consultants who offer services and products, but if you don’t know what you should know for proper protection, you can cause more damage from increasing EMFs/RFs by doing the wrong thing thinking you are correcting the problem.
One of the most effective ways of dealing with EMFs/RFs is to turn off the power at the inside house main electrical service panel, often referred to as the “breaker box.” What would be turned off prior to bedtime should be electric power to bedrooms to reduce electromagnetics from appliances and in-wall house wiring during sleep time, especially if the headboard of the bed is against a wall with an electrical socket. That’s what most building biologists suggest, especially for families who cannot afford the expense of retrofitting wiring or installing other safety measures.
The other cautionary measure is to not to allow a TV, computer, printer, or other electronics in the bedroom, including a cell phone.
Everyone who researches the adverse effects of EMFs/RFs recommends renting, purchasing or using an EMF/RF consultant and his/her testing meter to assess the EMF/RF exposure in each room; for all appliances; for all electrical equipment, AMI Smart Meters (electric, natural gas and water); for all electronic games, cell phones, computers, routers, light bulbs, dimmer switches, etc. and keep the numbers you get from the testing meter readouts in a notebook where you can compare them after remedial procedures have been installed in your home.
You can purchase testing meters but, I think, you really ought to know which to purchase and how to use them for do-it-yourself in-house testing, or determining what you are exposed to at work.
Obtain a test reading of body voltage of your skin, and for every member of your family, too. What few realize is that human skin acts as a perfect antenna!
Improper shielding CAN increase electric fields, so it is important that you do the body voltage testing first.
Dirty Electricity (DE), aka Sinusoidal Waves, Electronic Noise
Previously, I wrote the article “An Easy Do-It-Yourself Way To Detect Electromagnetic Fields In Your Home,” which can be a very inexpensive and relatively safe way to check for dirty electricity.
If you get lots of loud chatter, maybe you ought to consult an electrician who knows what to do; contact your electricity provider company and tell them about what you found coming over your in-house wires and see what they can do on their end; and, ideally, have a building biologist assess your home since dirty electricity can amount to the 20,000 Hz range a second impacting your inside home environment.
Dirty Electricity corrective measures to discuss with professionals who can fix the problem
New building construction:
If you are in the process of building a new home, talk with your contractor and electrician about installing what is called MC Cable or BX Cable coated wiring, which may cost 20% more, but protects your in-wall house wiring from emitting EMFs out as far as 6 to 8 feet, as most current electric wiring does. Both MC and BX apparently stop the fields from getting out of the wall!
Bedroom / sleeping area remedy:
There are special MC and BX in-wall electric sockets, which would be very helpful in the bedroom for an EMF/RF-free sleeping area. The work, however, should be done by a licensed electrician who is familiar with such remedial processes and ONLY after all testing has been done in the house, in my opinion.
EMF/RF Mitigation Resources
One reliable building biologist, who I have listened to his interview regarding the above, is Michael Neuert, who is in Santa Rosa, California, and whose website is EMF Center.com.
Neuert Electromagnetic Services website is comprehensive and user friendly.
Another online excellent resource for learning how to protect you and your family from EMFs/RFs, etc., is Lloyd Burrell, who hosts ElectricSense.
With all the generations of EMFs/RFs [3G, 4G and the currently fast-tracked 5G, none being tested for human or environmental impacts], bombarding us moment by moment, every person, in my opinion, ought to take seriously how to protect your most personal possession, your health and body, from absolutely real electromagnetic energy damage, which can lead to numerous diseases, especially cancer, since those frequencies are documented to break DNA!
