Our world is constantly evolving and changing; In less than a hundred years, we conquered new fields of knowledge and invented many technological marvels to help us accelerate the process of obtaining information. Technology is in our homes, in our desks, in our hands, in the hands of our children and, sometimes, even in us. We are so attracted to the new world that we often forget that we should worry about EMF protection.
EMF or mylectro SUBWAYagnatic FThe fields are invisible electric and magnetic radiations that behave like a wave and interfere with our vital systems. On Earth, there are two types of EMF:
- natural, Produced by the Earth and the human body. This type of EMF is extremely low and our bodies resonate with it. Natural EMFs keep us healthy and help regulate the vital functions of the body;
- Artificial EMF, produced by our latest technology such as cell phones, microwaves, hair dryers, etc. Any electrical thing in our house produces high levels of EMF every second, disturbing our natural link with the planet.
The main reason why we need EMF protection and protection is our health. We are exposed to EMF levels a couple hundred times higher than our parents and grandparents.
High levels of EMF can be the explanation for many new diseases and conditions that appeared in the last century. We, as living beings that breathe, operate on the basis of bioelectrical signals produced with the help of our natural EMF. When our natural electromagnetic field is disturbed, the vital functions of our organism can be affected.
Sleep cycle problems (fatigue), high levels of stress (anxiety), immunity deficiencies, brain tumors and even DNA mutations were associated with high levels of artificial EMF. Without EMF protection, we can live under a high power transmission line!
What do EMFs really emit?
It is shown that all electrical devices emit a certain level of EMF, but those with the highest and most toxic levels are electrical devices. Our kitchen is an EMF danger zone and we spend around 2 to 3 hours each day. Here is a table published by the US Environmental Protection Agency. UU With the EMF values emitted by our everyday devices.
To understand the data presented in the table below, you need to know two very important aspects:
- The measurement of the EMF unit is 1 milliGauss (1 mG);
- The safety levels recommended by EMF are between 5 mG and 2.5 mG.
As you can see, many of the devices we use constantly give away much more electromagnetic field radiation than is recommended for our safety. You could reduce exposure by staying at least three feet away from all your appliances, but some of them require constant supervision. For example, how could you use a vacuum three feet away?
Another way to reduce EMF radiation is to buy new appliances. The old ones are more dangerous from this point of view. Another device that we use daily and that emits high levels of EMF is the cell phone. The rule also applies here: the new devices emit lower levels of radiation, but cell phones are with us at every moment of the day prolonging the exposure. They are right next to our body all day and, sometimes, at night. We give them to our children as toys without considering the effects they may have.
A scientist showed that EMFs emitted by a cell phone can penetrate up to 2 inches into the brain of an adult person. Can you imagine what this does to a small child? The list of devices that emit more or less harmful radiation is quite long, but here we select some that are more common in our lives: computers, tablets, wireless routers, game consoles, radio stations, etc. As you can see, some of these devices have become vital to our daily lives. We need them at work, to do our work and we need them at home for leisure and relaxation activities.
We want to think that now, after reading about the harmful radiations emitted by the devices we use every day, you will understand why it is important to talk about EMF shielding and EMF protection devices.
Methods, materials and EMF shielding devices.
Your house is your sanctuary; Here you raise your children and spend some of the most beautiful moments of your life. You need it to be a safe and welcoming environment that allows those who live in it to develop surrounded by love and harmony. The fact that the electromagnetic radiation of each object you use is not the ideal environment that someone would want in your home. That is why it is very important to know the EMF shielding methods.
The main idea is to use materials that form barriers against electromagnetic fields. These materials will block the radiation of your devices (for example) and will isolate that of the cables. The most used materials for electromagnetic shielding of your home are the metal sheet, the metal foam and the metal screen. A sheet of metal is obtained by processing the metal (usually the dishes) into very thin sheets that can be molded easily.
The metal in these materials insulates the EMF and forms a barrier between you and the device you use. In electrical appliances, producers use metallic ink inside. This layer connected to the ground provides an effective shield, as would a sheet of metal.
The best example when it comes to electromagnetic shielding is an armored cable.
This type of cable has a metal mesh that surrounds the core, which does not allow the EMF to radiate around the cable. It also helps with other devices that interfere with the internal core and add another signal. Even so, if there are holes in the metal layer larger than the radiation diameter, it will not be protected. EMF will escape through those holes and it will still affect your health.
In addition, he does not stay at home all day, he has to go out to work and buy groceries and then he gets in touch with EMF from other buildings and houses. That’s why you should consider EMF protection devices. There are many devices you can use to protect both your home and your family from electromagnetic radiation wherever you go.
How to choose good EMF protection
Given that the EMF protection and everything related to this area is somewhat ambiguous for the general public, the market is full of all kinds of objects that are considered the best. The ambiguity comes mainly from the fact that we deal with radiations and energies that no one can see with the naked eye. We only see the effects it has on our health, so we have the right to be a bit skeptical about EMF.
There are two main types of devices that can help us stay away from EMF: EMF measuring devices and EMF jewelry. There is a complete market and, since there is no main authority to know which ones are really useful, it is difficult to know what to obtain. Well, that’s why we’re here: to see which ones offer the best EMF protection.
EMF protection devices
We all saw that electrical devices emit EMF and this happens while we are at home cooking or watching television. Modern appliances use shielding to reduce these radiations, but there is no way to know (at a glance) if your microwave oven will also heat it. The cables we use to conduct electric current are now protected, but there is still the problem of cell phones, tablets, wireless devices and computers. These devices also emit radiation and are even more dangerous since we are very close to them all the time.
So, how can we know if the devices we use every day are safe or not? The answer is simple: use an EMF meter. An EMF meter is a scientific device that looks like an antenna, which is used to scan the surrounding environment to detect EMF radiation. There are two types of electromagnetic field meters:
- EMF broadband meters, which is more like a probe that detects a wide range of frequencies.
- Selective frequency meters that can be configured to detect only a certain frequency range. It has two elements in its composition: an antenna and a selective frequency receiver.
Because most EMF radiations are recorded around domestic and industrial appliances, EMF meters are usually set to detect frequencies of 50-60 Hz. These are the standard frequencies for the United States and Europe. These are the EMF meters that you can use to detect if your house is safe. Of course, there are others that can detect lower frequencies, but these are more expensive and their only use is for scientific research.
We collect some tips that can be very useful when you want to buy your first EMF meter:
- Make sure you measure three types of waves: magnetic, electric, and radio or microwave. In this way, you will have a gauss meter, a radio field meter and an electric field meter in a single package.
- Check if the magnetic fields are measured correctly. A weak EMF meter will indicate 0 even though there is strong magnetic activity.
- Do not buy a meter that requires some guidance to measure maximum values. It is difficult to work with them and if you do not check your orientation constantly during the measurements, you will not get the correct values. Choose one that can scan the surrounding environment quickly.
- Ask the person from whom you purchase your EMF meter if you can locate the wiring on the walls. In general, the cables on the walls are overlooked because we can not see them, but if they are not well insulated, they can also emit radiation.
- It must be portable and easy to hold in your hands, there is no reason for you to buy a large piece of machinery.
If you feel you can not trust a device that measures three types of radiation at the same time, you can always buy them separately. Exist:
- Gaussimeters for wiring, appliances and power lines;
- Gaussimeters for magnetic fields;
- Devices for measuring radio frequencies and microwaves.
In addition to being able to inform you about your electromagnetic levels at home, EMF meters are also used in an unorthodox activity: finding ghosts. People who believe that spiritual entities live and share this planet with us can use these meters to find them (theoretically). We can only recommend EMF meters for the scanning of houses and appliances. We talk about the EMF meter because it is the only scientific method to determine EMF levels in the surrounding environment. Still, this is not a device that protects you; It will only offer you a reading.
The obvious question comes to mind when reading this: why buy it if there is not an EMF protector? Well, there is also an obvious answer: because with this device you will know for sure if the methods you are trying are effective. Buying an EMF meter is the best EMF protection method for two main reasons:
- It is a first step to recognize that there is a problem: you will not be able to see them yet, but you will have the device that will tell you where the access points are.
- You can be sure if the appliances you have in the house are safe for EMF. The same applies for new ones.
For devices that we like to keep close to our body (phone, tablet, etc.) there are special bags and cases with protection. The only way to know which are really effective is with an EMF meter.
We saw how efficient an EMF meter can be but it is difficult to carry it around all the time. They are not too big, but they need to be calibrated and interpreted, which is hard to do when you go out with friends. That is why in the market appeared a supply of portable EMF protection devices in the form of jewelries. We know it sounds like the story of a fantastic book, but scientists showed that certain stones and crystals have the property of absorbing electromagnetic energy.
Most EMF jewelry (usually pendants or ankle bracelets) are based on the principle of resonance. It is believed that this type of jewelry provides its own EMF frequencies that are in tune with the natural electromagnetic frequency of the Earth. This resonance blocks the effects that artificial EMF has on our body and allows our body to heal.
It is quite difficult to say if the EMF jewelry is real or just a scam. There are thousands of people who are ready to swear that they got healthier as soon as they started using a special pendant or an ankle bracelet. In fact, we should have a more open mind when it comes to the energies that flow around us and the way they interact with our body. But in doing this, we also have to consider the scientific approach and make sure we get all the right information before making a life-changing decision.
In the end, the main conclusion is that EMF radiation exists and has a powerful effect on our mind, body and spirit. It makes us more stressed and anxious and, sometimes, it can lead to mutations in the DNA. Therefore, we must measure our exposure and make the right decisions when we surround ourselves with technology. Here are some tips that may be useful in your EMF protection process:
- Do not buy appliances that you will not use, even when they are off, they emit EMF;
- Make sure that the wiring in your house is properly insulated and that there are no holes to let the electromagnetic field out;
- Just buy EMF-proof appliances; request specifications from the manufacturer;
- Try to stay away from electrical appliances (3 feet is the minimum safety distance);
- Do not put your TV too close to your bed and do not sleep with the phone nearby;
- Turn off wireless routers when you are not using them;
- Buy a good EMF meter to make sure your methods really work.
As you can see, the best protection against EMF is reduced exposure. If you take all the precautions and follow the simple steps we are talking about, you should be able to protect yourself from most electromagnetic fields.
We know that in a world where technology is absolutely everywhere, it is difficult to keep the distance, but your health and that of your family is extremely important. That’s why you should make sure that your house is protected; Here you spend a large part of your time with family and friends. If your house is clean of EMF, you will have a better chance of having a good health and a better life.
