Wi-Fi and Smart Meters: How to Protect Yourself from EMF Radiation.

In this digital age, we are surrounded by technology. From smartphones to laptops, Wi-Fi to smart meters, we are constantly connected. However, with the convenience of these devices comes the potential for harm. Wi-Fi and smart meters emit electromagnetic fields (EMFs), which can have negative effects on our health. In this article, we’ll explore some simple steps you can take to protect yourself from EMF radiation.

What are EMFs?

EMFs are a type of radiation that are emitted by electronic devices. They can be classified into two categories: ionising and non-ionising. Ionising radiation, such as X-rays and gamma rays, have enough energy to ionise atoms and molecules, which can cause DNA damage and increase the risk of cancer. Non-ionising radiation, on the other hand, has lower energy and cannot cause ionisation. However, it can still have negative effects on our health.

Wi-Fi and smart meters emit non-ionising radiation in the form of radiofrequency (RF) radiation. RF radiation has been classified as a possible carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). This means that there is some evidence to suggest that it can cause cancer in humans. However, the evidence is not conclusive and more research is needed to fully understand the risks.

 

How to Protect Yourself from EMF Radiation

  1. Reduce your exposure to Wi-Fi

One of the easiest ways to protect yourself from Wi-Fi radiation is to reduce your exposure. Here are some simple steps you can take:

  • Turn off your Wi-Fi router when you’re not using it.
  • Use a wired internet connection instead of Wi-Fi whenever possible.
  • Keep your distance from Wi-Fi routers and devices, especially when they are in use.
  • Use a Wi-Fi router with lower power output.
  • Use shielding materials such as EMF paint, curtains, or fabrics to block EMF radiation from entering your home.
  1. Protect yourself from smart meter radiation

Smart meters are becoming increasingly common in homes and businesses. They are used to measure energy usage and communicate with the utility company. However, they also emit EMF radiation. Here are some steps you can take to protect yourself:

  • Ask your utility company to install an analogue meter instead of a smart meter.
  • If you already have a smart meter, ask your utility company to turn off the wireless communication function.
  • Use shielding materials such as EMF paint, curtains, or fabrics to block EMF radiation from entering your home.
  • Keep a safe distance from the smart meter, especially when it is in use.
  1. Get an EMF survey done in your property

One of the most effective ways to protect yourself from EMF radiation is to get an EMF survey done in your property. An EMF survey will identify the sources of EMF radiation in your home or workplace, and provide recommendations for reducing your exposure. An EMF survey is particularly important if you live near a cell tower or power lines, or if you are experiencing symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, or insomnia.

Conclusion

While the risks of EMF radiation are not fully understood, it is always better to be safe than sorry. By reducing your exposure to Wi-Fi and smart meter radiation, and getting an EMF survey done in your property, you can protect yourself and your family from the potential harm of EMFs. Remember, small changes can make a big difference, so take action today to protect your health.

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!
