Electromagnetic Radiation Dangers and Prudent Avoidance

Electricity is essential to our modern day society. This also means that electromagnetic radiation dangers will also continue to be around us. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has advised "prudent avoidance" of EMFs (electromagnetic fields).

Discover Magazine has brought up an interesting observation concerning these indisputable facts: besides making our lives easier, is electricity also making our lives shorter?

Most experts agree that limited, non-chronic exposure to EMFs is not a threat, such as a person to be near a toaster in the morning. However, the EPA has stated that it does not advise a person to sleep under an electric blanket, live up-close a powerline/substation, or sleep in a room where the power enters the home.
This person is then said to be under an extreme case of chronic exposure. Unfortunately this applies to millions of Americans.

If the EPA's advice is to be taken, practicing "prudent avoidance" is advised by doing the following:
  1. Measure your home, work and school environments with a Gauss meter inside and out.
  2. Avoid areas where the electromagnetic field is above 1 mG.
  3. Measure EMFs from appliances when in operation and when turned off. Some appliances (like TVs) are still drawing current even when they are off.
  4. Do not sleep under an electric blanket or on a waterbed. If you must, unplug them before going to bed (not just turn off). There is no magnetic field when they are turned off, but there still may be a high electric field.
  5. Move your office and home furniture so that you are not exposed to electromagnetic radiations dangers from the sides/backs of electric appliances and computers.
  6. In the home, all major electrical appliances, such as computers, TVs, refrigerators etc, should be placed against outside walls. If you don't you are creating an EMF field in the next room.
  7. Don't sit too close to your computer and use your meter to determine its strength, since they tend to vary.
  8. Don't stand close to your microwave oven.
  9. All electrical appliances should be moved at least 6 feet from your bed, no wires underneath the bed and get rid of dimmers and 3-way switches.
  10. Don't use cordless appliances such as electric toothbrushes and razors
  11. Quartz-analog watch are not advisable since they radiate pulsating EMFs along your acupuncture meridians. An older wind-up watch is safer.
  12. Wear as little jewelry as possible and to take it off at night because many people have metal sensitivity, which can be worsened by placing it right on the skin. You can also measure them with a Gauss meter to be sure.
  13. Never forget that electromagnetic radiation dangers pass right through walls. The EMF reading from your Gauss meter could actually be coming from the next room...or from outside your home.
  14. Believe it or not: eyeglass frames should ideally be made from plastic with no wires in them, else wise they can serve as an antenna to focus the radio and cellular phone waves directly into your brain.
If all of this sounds like something you would never get around to doing except if you were suffering there are other methods using proven Sympathetic Resonance Technology (SRT) which strengthens your body's immune system against direct and ambient sources of electromagnetic radiation dangers.
