Educational Information

        Living in a high frequency wi-fi radiation environment — cell phones, cordless phones, wi-fi, smart meters — is a serious issue! We owe it to ourselves and to our children to become well-enough educated so that we know the whole picture of what is going on in regard to the dangers of wi-fi technology, the politics of the technological communications industry, and the biased science that that industry provides. There is a lot of information available that is based on independent scientific research. I support you in using the links provided in this website.
       The concern is so intense now, that there is new information coming from all over the world, pretty much every day, illuminating the dangers of living in a high frequency wi-fi and cell phone radiation environment. For example, on May 11, 2015, 190 scientists from around the world appealed to the United Nations and the World Health Organization (WHO) about the dangers of w-fi radiation, particularly to children and fetal development.

Major Cell Phone Radiation Study Reignites Cancer Questions
         It's encouraging to see the ever-growing science that shows us the reality of the truth that high-frequency microwave radiation (cell phone, Wi-Fi, and smart meter radiation) are most likely not good for our health. It is with this in mind that this article is being added to this website. It is noteworthy, however, that these tests were done with the radiation exposure of only nine hours a day, when the reality is that we are being exposed 24/7.

        There's nothing like experience to teach us. And it's true that other people's experience can be very useful for us. This Ted Talk is a prime example. Jeromy Johnson, a young, successful Silicon Valley engineer, shares with us what his life has become because of the negative and permanent health effects cell phones, wi-fi, and smart meters have had on his body. For most of us to acknowledge the threat of w-fi radiation, we have to have Jeromy's experience be our own. In my work with many people sick from EMF exposure, they would give a lot not to be one of those people.

          This book, published in 2015, is a good source of detailed information on the world of electromagnetic fields (EMFs). Reading it provides you with up-to-date information on the truths and the deceptions of what you hear about the safety of EMFs, especially high-frequency digital EMFs, as in all Wi-Fi appliances, cell phones, cell towers, and smart meters. There's a lot of clear, well-documented science here.

         There is a lot more information available on the web and at research institutions based at various universities. Here are my answers to some Frequently Asked Questions, as well as links to some in-depth articles, studies, interviews, videos, and documentaries about the effects of EMFs.


EMFs

Q. What is an EMF?
A.  An EMF (Electromagnetic Field) is the field of energy that surrounds either:
           — a source of electricity (generating stations—and this includes tv and radio transmitters, cell phone towers, police and military transmitters, etc.; alternators in cars, etc.), or
           — something that uses electricity (appliances, power tools, etc.), or
           — conductors of electricity (wiring, whether it’s the power lines outside your house, the wiring of your house, or just the wires that go to your lamps and computers, etc.) 
      The fields that we are most concerned about come from alternating current (AC). The frequency of the AC in your home is 60 cycles per second. However, AC can and does occur at much higher frequencies as well. No matter what the frequency, all alternating current creates EMFs, and it is these electromagnetic fields that we are concerned with in terms of the effects they have on our health, and on the health of all living matter on the planet.


Q. What are safe levels for EMFs?
A.  It is true that the effects of EMF radiation are cumulative. This means that the more one is subjected to EMF radiation, the more sensitive that person is likely to become. This makes setting a rigid standard for EMF radiation safety difficult because what may be safe for one person may not be at all safe for another. Also, one’s sensitivity can change so that one might not be sensitive initially, and then later become very sensitive.
       The 2012 BioInitiative Report recommends the safety levels for various kinds of EMFs for an environment of continuous radiation. As is mentioned above, these levels may be far too high for some people, given that people's sensitivities vary a great deal. And given that the effects of EMF radiation are cumulative, and that we are being subjected to ever-increasing levels, it is highly likely that we will all become more and more sensitive to this radiation.
       It is now quite clear that our health is being negatively affected on numbers of levels. The list of serious illnesses, as well as conditions of great discomfort, is unfolding as research is deepening into this issue. At this point this list is quite long. For those of you who are interested, there is a great deal of information on the web about this. As an example, let me say that it has been clearly shown that loss of memory and headaches are at the beginning of the list, with various forms of life-threatening diseases such as cancer at the end.


Q. Are children more affected by EMFs than adults?
A.  Yes. This is especially true with cell phones and iPads. Although all children are not equally sensitive to EMFs, just like adults, it has been scientifically proven that, because the child's skull is not as thick or as dense an adult's skull, the radiation penetrates more deeply into the brain. Also a child’s brain is in the process of development well into the teenage years and perhaps longer, and EMFs disturb the healthy formation of the brain.
        It is also true that the effects of EMFs are cumulative, so the longer a person is subjected to these fields the more sensitized they become, and, of course, a child has more years for this accumulation to occur than someone older. It's also a fact that many cancers take a number of years to form, so the younger you are, the younger you may well be when the cancer shows up. It is a fact that more and more children are getting cancers at earlier and earlier ages.
 

Q. Are animals more affected by EMFs than adults?
A.  It has not been shown that they are more or less affected than humans. And, as with humans, it's an individual issue. Some people and animals are deeply affected, and some far less. It's complex, too, because the effects are cumulative. The more you are subjected to these fields the more sensitive you get, and this is true of your animals as well. It's true, too, that some of the effects take years to show up. Cancer is in this category. There have been reported cases where dogs have left their homes and disappeared after a smart meter was installed at their home. It is true that many animals are more sensitive, not only to higher frequencies of sound than we are, but also to higher frequencies of energy. It has also been reported that cows are very sensitive to electric fields.


Q. What can I do to make my home safer?
A.  EMF radiation is bad for the health of your family, your animals, and even your plants. It's important to do your best to lower your exposure to EMF radiation in your home and in your place of work, and for your children in their schools. It's especially important to lower it in places where you spend a lot of time, like your bedroom, your office, and the place where you watch television and movies. 
      The good news is that you can control a lot of EMF radiation. The common sources of EMF radiation in your home are Wi-Fi, cordless telephones, smart meters, and cell phones. The wiring in your home also emits EMF radiation. All of this can be measured, and shielding can be used to protect you and your family and animals.
       In terms of Wi-Fi and cordless telephones, one option is to go back to corded telephones, and to replace Wi-Fi with corded connections. If, however, you feel it's very important for you to have Wi-Fi, just move the transmitter as far away as possible from those places in the house where you spend a great deal of time, and turn it off when you're not using it, as in when you sleep. 
      Smart meters are another source of EMF radiation in your home, but they can be shielded quite successfully. 
      It's a good idea if you're renting or buying a home or apartment, to have it checked for EMF fields before you commit to it. And if you're building a home, you can have it wired in such a way that will keep the EMFs down to a very low level. It's not a good idea to move next to cell phone towers, TV and radio station antennas, or police stations, because of the radar and mobile radios that they use. It's also important to be aware of the EMF situation in the schools your children attend. This is easy to check. For instance, do the schools have Wi-Fi? 
      Our environment is becoming increasingly saturated with various forms of EMFs, and the effect is cumulative. It’s very important, therefore, and a very fortunate thing, that you can control the environment in which you live and work, and in which your children go to school. And I'm here to help you do that.


Q. What if I live in an apartment complex?
A.  Living in an apartment complex can subject you to the EMF fields of the apartment above and/or below, as well as the apartments you share walls with. As an example, do your neighbors have Wi-Fi right on the other side of the wall your bed is against?
       Another example: Where are all the smart meters for the various apartments? Are they on the outside of the wall of one of the rooms in your apartment where you spend a great deal of time? And, is the house wiring of your floor serving ceiling lights in the apartment below, so that you may well be affected by the magnetic fields from that wiring?
       Fortunately, in most cases, various forms of shielding can be used to bring the EMF levels down to the accepted safe levels.

Growing Concern of the Wi-Fi Radiation Impact on Children
  (Click on the blue heading to read the article.)

        In December 2011, Dr. David O. Carpenter, M.D., Director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University at Albany, and an EMF (Electromagnetic Field) subject matter expert, authored an amended declaration on behalf of the plaintiff in Morrison v. Portland Public Schools documenting his view of the impact WiFi radiation has on children attending school. Carpenter’s declaration is richly filled with information on the biological effects of WiFi radiation and his concerns about the safety of wireless devices in schools. He recommends wired solutions, as opposed to WiFi, as a way to safeguard children and maximized learning.
       

  (Click on the blue heading to watch the video.)

        In 2007, fourteen eminent scientists and public health experts reviewed the evidence contained in over 2000 studies about the health implications of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) from power lines, mobile phones, cordless phones, phone masts (cellphone towers), digital baby monitors, wi-fi, and other wireless technologies. The result was the BioInitiative Report. (This Report was updated in 2012.)
        This video interview with Cindy Sage, Environmental Consultant, Sage Associates, Santa Barbara, CA, bioinitiative.org, details the dangers of EMFs under current FCC standards.

        A PBS radio interview with guests Lloyd Morgan, senior science fellow at Environmental Health Trust, and Cris Rowan, a pediatric occupational therapist in British Columbia, Canada and author of Virtual Child: The terrifying truth about what technology is doing to children.
       This interview is a continuation of a week-long series on our hyper-connected world by focusing on children. In 2012, the American Academy of Pediatricians called on the FCC to conduct a “formal inquiry into radiation standards for cell phones and other wireless products” because “standards have generally been based on the impact of exposure on an adult male.”  So what do we know about how devices affect the development of children?


Resonance: Beings of Frequency
  (Click on the blue heading to watch the film on YouTube.)

       From the DVD jacket: Resonance: Beings of Frequency is the first documentary to investigate the actual mechanisms by which mobile phone technology can cause cancer. The film takes a deeper look at how humanity is reacting to the most profound environmental change the planet has ever seen. 2 billion years ago life first appeared on earth, a planet bathed in a natural electromagnetic frequency. As life slowly evolved from simple whole to complex organisms, it did so surrounded by this frequency, forming a harmonic relationship with it, a relationship that science is just beginning to comprehend.
       New research is showing that exposure to this frequency is vital to human beings. It controls our mental and physical health, it synchronizes our circadian rhythms, it aids our immune system, and it improves our overall sense of well-being. Not only are we surrounded by natural frequencies, our bodies are suffused with them. Our cells communicate using electromagnetic frequencies. Our brain emits a constant stream of frequencies and our DNA delivers instructions using frequency waves. Without them, we could not exist.
       This delicate balance has taken billions of years to perfect. But over the last two or three decades this harmony has been disturbed, and dramatically so. Mankind has saturated itself in an ocean of artificial frequencies. They are all around us, filling the air and overwhelming the Earth's natural resonance. To the naked eye our world appears the same. But at the cellular level it is the most rheumatic change that life on earth has ever endured, and we are only now beginning to understand it.
       


Cell Phones

       It's important for us to be really honest about the possible threat of EMF fields to ourselves, our children, and our animals. This requires that we look at the issue from a position of absolute neutrality, and with a clear intention of being very open to the truth. We do this by a thorough investigation of the science provided to us by the cell phone industries as well as independent scientific studies, and separate from both business and politics. This requires us to put aside our personal prejudices either for or against the truth of this matter.
       Would we rather err on the side of caution, or on the side of what we would like to believe? And which position do we feel is safe in terms of taking responsibility for subjecting ourselves and those we love to this new environment of electromagnetic radiation?


Q. Are cell phones really dangerous?
A.  Research has shown that the microwave radiation from cell phones is indeed dangerous to your health. This is of special concern for children. There are many articles well worth reading on this subject. (Check out the links under the EMFs category above, as well as the links and article below.)
        There is confusion because, on one side of the issue, there is the cell phone industry with their scientists supplying the data, which assures you that cell phones are completely safe. And on the other side you have the independent scientists who point out the flaws in the studies that the industries provide for their proof. Since the threats to your health are not small for either you or your children, it’s well worth doing the research.
       There is another issue here which is, simply, that most of us really like our cell phones, and do not want to hear or know that they are a danger to our health. This, of course, is a personal issue. Each person must make up their own mind and take responsibility for their decision. This becomes a little more far-reaching and complex when one’s children are involved.
 

Q. What are my best options for safer cell phone use?
A.  The best option is to use your cell phone as little as possible.
       Another option is to find out just what the radiation is of the specific phone you are considering using. Cell Phones differ quite a lot in terms of the amount of radiation they emit. Get as low radiation emitting phone as you can find.
       Still another option is to use a headset, but this depends on the brand and model of your cell phone. Shop carefully because the headsets of some brands and models can actually subject you to more radiation. The phones in question use the headset as an aerial, and send the radiation right up the wire right into your head. There are, however, headsets that use a thin sound tube to transmit the sound. These are by far the safest bet.
       A third option is to use the “speaker phone,” and place the phone as far away from you as possible. If you use the “speaker phone” and hold the phone, you are still receiving a strong degree of radiation. You want to have the phone as far from you as you can.  Distance reduces the radiation.
       It is definitely not a good idea to use your cell phone in a metal enclosure like your car. The radiation bounces off the metal so that you receive the radiation repeatedly from those metal surfaces as well as from the phone itself. This is how your microwave oven cooks your food.
       Then there is the issue of all the people around you using their cell phones. The simple answer for this is simply to create space between you and them.

   
Q. Is it safe to carry my cell phone on my person? 
A.  Safe is an interesting word. If you must carry it on your person, it is safe if it is totally turned off. If you want to be available for calls without checking your messages and then calling back, it's best to carry it as far away from your body trunk and your head as possible, and that would be on your lower leg close to your ankle. You can have someone sew a pocket there on your pant leg or do it yourself. You could also have a pocket on your shoe.


Q. Do I need to be concerned about cell phone towers? 
A.  Cell phone towers put out signals 24/7, and different cell phone towers put out different strengths of signals. You receive more radiation the closer you are to the tower. The signal from a cell phone tower, if you are a quarter of a mile or more away from it, is actually quite weak in comparison to the signal put out by your cell phone, which is in your hand. However, the signal from the cell phone tower increases quickly the closer you get to the tower. It is important to remember that you can turn off your cell phone, but the cell phone tower is sending out its radiation 24/7.
      EMF radiation is cumulative, so the fact that the towers are radiating 24/7 is something to be concerned about. It is not a good idea to live or work in a building with a cell phone tower on the roof or very nearby. In a situation like that not only is the signal very strong, but, as I’ve said above, it’s radiating 24/7. The best way to know the degree of radiation from cell phone towers is to have a professional like me measure the signal for you. Guidelines suggest that the signal should be less than .0003 microwatts per centimeter squared. For many people this is still far too high.

Wi-Fi

Q. Is Wi-Fi dangerous to your health?
A.  Your Wi-Fi transmitter/receiver is like a cell phone tower so, yes, it is dangerous to your health. Your computer both sends and receives signals to and from your Wi-Fi transmitter, and in order for your computer keyboard and mouse to be wireless they must all transmit a microwave signal to your computer. The closer you are to your Wi-Fi transmitter/receiver the more radiation you are getting. The best way to avoid this radiation is to go back to using wires, and give up Wi-Fi. If that seems too difficult for you to do, it is best to keep your Wi-Fi transmitter as far away from your bedroom and your place of work as possible and still have it work. It’s also a good idea to simply turn your Wi-Fi off when you’re not using your computer, as in, at least, when you sleep.
     It’s true that you are affected by other people’s Wi-Fi transmitters/receivers in the buildings around you. This is more of an issue, however, if you live in an apartment building where there are people above, below, or beside you, because these apartment Wi-Fi units are much closer to you than the ones in the separate buildings around you.  Fortunately it is possible to shield yourself from microwave radiation from smart meters, cell phones, Wi-Fi, etc., and this is one of the services we provide.

Smart Meters

Q. What are "smart meters"?
A.  "Smart meters" are radio devices that receive and transmit signals to and from the utility companies. These meters work in a grid system, transmitting signals from one meter to another like a daisy chain, and then, finally, to the utility company. Smart meters use microwave digital technology — the same kind of technology that is used for Wi-Fi and cell phones. At this point smart meters are mainly being used to measure the use of electricity and gas.
       One of the concerns about smart meters is the EMF microwave radiation they emit. Given that smart meters are installed on every home and business that uses electricity and/or gas, and that smart meters operate 24/7, smart meters are creating an environment of continuous radiation. And not only are you affected by your own house meter, but also by the meters on the houses around you.
       The utility companies tell us that smart meters operate only a minute or so a day. This is misleading because the information that smart meters send to the company is sent in a strong but very short pulse. You could fit thousands of these pulses into a minute. Smart meters emit these pulses all through the day, and these strong pulses are proving to be very damaging to your health.
       There are many scientific studies dealing with the health concerns of smart meter radiation. The links to some of these are listed below.
 

Q. What if I live in an apartment complex?
A.  In terms of smart meters, one may well be affected by the smart meters that serve the other apartments. Fortunately, in most cases, these meters can be shielded so that the radiation is at a controlled, safe level. The following account offered by one of my clients can serve as an example.

Dirty Electricity

Q. What is "Dirty Electricity"?
A.  The electricity that comes into your home comes in at a frequency of 60 cycles per second. In its pure form it is known as "clean electricity." These days there are other, higher frequencies that piggyback on the normal 60-cycle signal. These higher-frequency signals are called transient spikes. Transient spikes are called "dirty electricity." These transient spikes are also produced in your home by various appliances—computers, printers, Wi-Fi, televisions, electric-saving fluorescent bulbs . . . just to name a few.
 

Q. Why should I be concerned about "dirty electricity"?
A.  The earth has its own, low-frequency field that is the environment that supports all living matter. This field is used by all living matter and especially by migratory creatures (birds, whales, fish, bees, butterflies, etc.) to make their way in the world. It is also how bees find their way back to their hives. It is this field that enables both birds and fish to move synchronistically, as when you see a flock of birds quickly turn, keeping their formation intact.
      The high-frequency fields (EMFs) that humans have introduced into the environment are not only the wrong frequency, but are far more powerful than the earth's frequency, and thus create disturbance of the earth's magnetic field and confusion for all living matter. This can, and is, threatening life on the planet as we know it. Also, there is major concern about dirty electricity because studies show that these transient spikes can and do affect humans and animals negatively in serious ways. For more detailed information we recommend Samuel Milham's book Dirty Electricity. 


Q. What can I do about "dirty electricity"?
A.  The very best way to deal with "dirty electricity" is to first find the source of it. It may be coming in on external wiring, and/or it may be coming in on the utility water line coming into your home. It also may be being created within your home. After discovering its source, there are a number of ways we can deal with it to bring it down to safe levels.
