Protecting Yourself from Electromagnetic Pollution

As technology continues to advance, we are constantly surrounded by electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and radiation. While these invisible fields and waves have made our lives easier and more convenient, they can also be harmful to our health. In this article, we will explore what electromagnetic pollution is, how it affects us, and how we can protect ourselves from it.

What is Electromagnetic Pollution?

Electromagnetic pollution, also known as electromagnetic radiation, is the exposure of our bodies to high levels of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) emitted by electronic devices, power lines, and wireless communication systems.

These fields and waves are a natural part of our environment and come from sources like the sun and the Earth’s magnetic field. However, the rise of technology has introduced man-made sources of EMFs that are much stronger and more consistent, posing a greater risk to our health.

The human body is an electrical system, and the cells in our body communicate through electrical signals. Exposure to high levels of EMFs can interfere with these signals and disrupt our body’s natural balance, leading to a range of health problems, including headaches, fatigue, sleep disorders, and even cancer.

How Does Electromagnetic Pollution Affect Us?

The effects of electromagnetic pollution on our health are still being studied, but some research has suggested a link between exposure to EMFs and certain health problems. For example, a study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health found that long-term exposure to high levels of EMFs from power lines was associated with an increased risk of leukemia.

Other studies have linked exposure to EMFs with a range of health problems, including:

  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep disorders
  • Memory problems
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Skin rashes
  • Muscle pain

While the evidence linking EMFs to health problems is not yet conclusive, it is important to take steps to reduce our exposure to electromagnetic pollution.

How Can You Protect Yourself from Electromagnetic Pollution?

Reducing your exposure to electromagnetic pollution can be a challenge, especially as technology continues to advance. However, there are some simple steps you can take to protect yourself and your family:

  1. Use wired connections instead of wireless

One of the easiest ways to reduce your exposure to electromagnetic pollution is to use wired connections instead of wireless. This means using an Ethernet cable to connect your computer to the internet, rather than relying on Wi-Fi. It also means using a wired telephone instead of a mobile phone.

  1. Turn off your devices when not in use

When your electronic devices are not in use, they are still emitting electromagnetic radiation. To reduce your exposure, turn off your devices when you are not using them. This includes turning off your Wi-Fi router at night and when you are out of the house.

  1. Keep your distance

The strength of electromagnetic radiation decreases as you move away from the source. To reduce your exposure, keep your distance from electronic devices and power lines. For example, avoid sitting too close to your computer screen, and do not place your mobile phone next to your head when you are sleeping.

  1. Get an EMF survey done in your property

One of the most effective ways to protect yourself from electromagnetic pollution is to get an EMF survey done in your property. This survey will identify any sources of EMFs in your home or workplace and measure their strength. Based on the results, you can take steps to reduce your exposure, such as moving your bed away from a power outlet or replacing a Wi-Fi router with a wired connection.

Electromagnetic pollution is a growing concern in our modern world. While the evidence linking EMFs to health problems is not yet conclusive, it is important to take steps to reduce our exposure to electromagnetic pollution. By using wired connections instead of wireless, turning off devices when not in use, keeping your distance from electronic devices and power lines, and getting an EMF survey done in your property, you can reduce your exposure to electromagnetic pollution and protect your health.

It is worth noting that not all sources of electromagnetic pollution can be eliminated. For example, power lines and cell phone towers are often located outside of our control. In these cases, it is important to take steps to reduce your exposure where possible and to stay informed about the risks associated with EMFs.

In addition to protecting your health, reducing your exposure to electromagnetic pollution can also improve your quality of life. Many people report feeling more relaxed and energized when they are not constantly surrounded by electronic devices and radiation.

In conclusion, while we cannot eliminate all sources of electromagnetic pollution in our modern world, we can take steps to protect ourselves and our families. By using wired connections, turning off devices when not in use, keeping our distance, and getting an EMF survey done in our property, we can reduce our exposure to electromagnetic pollution and improve our wellbeing.

I had been in contact with EMF inspections LTd for the past few months while were were searching for a house to buy. They were incredibly professional and obliging and always happy to answer my questions. The survey itself was done in a very professional and friendly way. They have the option of next day booking.

Thank you EMF Inspectrions Ltd for doing our Low Frequency EMF Survey. We had Galin who came to do the survey and he was brilliant. Not only was he polite but very informative and knew his stuff. We were in the process of purchasing a propery next to an electrical sub-station and was worried that the EMF could be penetrating the property. Galin went round the entire property inside and out, down the alley and in the garden and took readings. He explained the different levels of readings and reassured us that all of our readings were below the government guidelines. We are so pleased with the service. We booked on a Monday and had the survey on Wednesday (we could of had Tuesday if we wanted). The report was with us on Thursday which is brillianty written out to explain the readings for people who are not "experts". Would highly recommend using EMF Inspections Ltd to anyone. Thank you again!
