Measuring radiation levels in places you stay in.

One of the most important measurements to be done inside a house is to measure the electromagnetic radiation levels in all the places in which you might stay in for a long time (more than 5 minutes). Examples for such locations in the house can be found in the following list: 
  • Sleeping Bed 
  • Home office station 
  • Kids Gaming-playing room 
  • Desk 
  • Dining Table 
  • Pc station 
  • Sofas
  • Sitting arraingement, sofa 
  • Living room 
The technique is to measure on top and next to the place in which the human body will be, and to try and understand what will be the radiation level and for how long the body will be exposed to it. In addition you need to try and figure out which radiation sources influence the radiation levels at this point. 
In the past I came across people who told me that they found a radiation source on their home working station desk, but they didn't think that it was serious since they sit next to it only for a short time. When I asked them for "how short?", they replied that they use it for half an hour to one hour each day. I just want to make it clear; I think that every exposure to electromagnetic radiation is not good and should be minimised as much as possible, and if possible to reduce it down to zero. Half an hour a day is not a short time as much as exposure to radiation is concerned, it is a lot of time. Whenever there is a radiation exposure it is highly recommended to try to find the source and turn it off so there will be no radiation emittion (no radiation for you :-)  ) .
