Cell phone radiation is commonly overlooked. Though it can contribute to many ill health factors, it is not widely known to be harmful. That is why it is important to study cellular radiation and its effects on the body as well as, things you can do to shield your own body from it. In addition, learning the ways you can discharge stored radiation in your body will leave you feeling rejuvenated and fresh. First, however, it is important to understand what ill effects radiation can have on your body.
One negative effect is linked to cognitive performance, spatial and mathematical equation response times for those people who were exposed to cellular radiation for more than thirty minutes. Other links have been made to having difficulty sleeping, and increased permeability in the Blood Brain Barrier. Extensive research has been done to identify the risks of developing cancer through radiation but no links have, as of yet, been identified. Overall, however, radiation has been linked to enough proof of negative health effects that it is wise to pursue safe practices. To shield yourself from radiation a few techniques can be employed.
Because radiation comes from talking on the cellular phone, and doing so is virtually non negotiable in our modern society, there have to be other ways to address the problems of cellular radiation other than to simply get off the phone. One suggestion that has been given surprisingly strong support sounds earthy, to say the least. However, scientific studies have shown that the electric charge of the earth itself can provoke a discharge of electric build-up and create substances such as radiation. If this sounds far fetched to you, you are not alone. Many people want a better solution.
Two other solutions have been offered to discharge cell phone radiation they include electromagnetic field (EMF) devices. Taking supplements with catalase, glutathione, and coQ10 will also help the bodies defence mechanism. The EMF devices may look awkward, but with the jury still out on all hazards that can accumulate radiation, prevention is a good practice. In addition, the supplements can help the body to deal with the effects of cellular radiation in more proactive ways.
Lastly, as a matter of preventing high doses of phone radiation, you should always avoid making calls when a cell phone has one bar of reception as the electromagnetic radiation increases as it searches for a signal.
With any or all of these precautions in place, you will decrease your risks of suffering future health problems caused by cellular phone’s. Even if there is not a consensus on symptoms and cause, no one has ever suffered from practicing safe health habits.
If the topic of cell phone radiation is important enough to garner millions of dollars in research funding and hours of scientists work, and if it is critical for the governments of many countries to regulate the high end of cellular use, it must be a topic worth considering.
Are Wi-Fi Hotspots Useful or Environmental Hazards?
By Paul Fitzgerald
What is WiFi? It is possible to form a somewhat informed opinion on the safety or potential risks of this new technology without actually being a physicist yourself. Quite simply, Wi-Fi is the wireless technology most commonly used to connect people to the Internet in schools, coffee shops, hotels and other network locations, or to connect cell phone users to one another. Wi-Fi is certainly convenient for travelers and students, but is it dangerous? Many believe that the low-level electromagnetic waves that radiate from the wireless Internet source to each individual user can be harmful to your health, even causing cellular changes and possibly cancer in some cases.
The area covered by a WiFi Internet connection is known as a “hotspot”; this is the area in which the waves radiate to give users access to the world wide web. It can span several kilometers, although the waves cannot pass through treed areas. While in the hotspot, a laptop user can simply connect to the network, access the Internet, and check their Email or do their other business on the run.
A wireless network uses radio waves to send communications across a two-way network. A computer’s wireless adapter translates the Internet connection data into a radio wave and sends it to the wireless router – the one in your laptop. This process works in reverse as well, sending a radio signal back to the host computer.
Hotspots Useful Stations or Environmental Hazards?
Some report an unusual sensitivity to the waves emitted in these hotspots. Officially, the levels of WiFi electromagnetic radiation emitted into the environment in a hotspot are well below recommended levels and there is no evidence of any risk to humans. Yet some people blame WiFi exposure for everything from sleep disturbances, headaches and blurred vision, to heart and breathing problems.
Because no study has ever shown a conclusive risk to human health from exposure to these low-frequency radio transmissions, many simply shrug off the complaints of these people, choosing to believe their symptoms are coincidental or caused by another source.
So just how high are the levels of radiation in a hotspot? According to Dr. Michael Clark of the HPA, the published research on mobile phones and wireless networks does not indicate a risk to human health. “All the expert reviews done here and abroad indicate that there is unlikely to be a health risk from wireless networks” he says. “The few studies on cellular phone masts that have appeared in peer-reviewed journals claiming to observe health effects are not at all conclusive. The real problem is deciding what level of precaution is appropriate.
“When we have conducted measurements in schools, typical exposures from wifi are around 20 millionths of the international guideline levels of exposure to radiation. As a comparison, a child on a mobile phone receives up to 50% of guideline levels. So a year sitting in a classroom near a wireless network is roughly equivalent to 20 minutes on a mobile. If wi-fi should be taken out of schools, then the mobile phone network should be shut down, too – and FM Radio and TV, as the strength of their signals is similar to that from wi-fi in classrooms.”
