The good life is great, but of little value unless we have our health. Here’s a hidden danger to be aware of:

Updated 12.23.2014

The good life is great, but it all should start with good health. This includes not only good nutrition, staying fit, and a healthy lifestyle, but also safety from electromagnetic fields (EMF).

Having spent over 30 years in technology and the promotion of good nutrition, I’ve combined my knowledge of science and health to provide simple and affordable solutions to the risks of EMF Electromagnetic fields in the home and workplace.

Of great concern & something we can help with:

The words electromagnetic field (EMF) describe the effects of electrical and magnetic forces on our physical world. You can picture them as waves that spread out in all directions. The waves are reflected, absorbed, modulated and disturbed to produce areas of high and low intensity. Not all wave frequencies are bad. Light can even be regarded as an EMF. Our eyesight is well adapted. But several other frequencies do cause us concern.

Visible_EM_modes

Most EMFs are completely invisible to humans. And this is particularly true of manmade EMFs. There is growing concern and emperical evidence that EMFs of varying wavelengths attack our health and wellbeing.

Studies are emerging that indicate damage to human tissue, cellular structure and the nervous system. Harmful EMF frequencies exist in the Electrical, Magnetic and Radio sections of the spectrum.

Our team is here to help you measure, identify and reduce the potential harms of electromagnetic fields.

Measuring EMF and what levels are considered harmful?

Updated 12.23.2014

We’re EMF home inspectors. We practice in Toronto and Southwestern Ontario. People ask us what EMF levels are considered harmful.  Here we answer these questions. We use the Building Biology Precautionary Guidelines (SBM-2008) For Sleeping Areas showing Magnetic and Electric from Germany. Basically, readings of 2 Milligaus and greater begin to give us concern. This is in the “Severe Concern” column below.

Our housecheck EMF inspections are available in Toronto and the GTA. Whether you are concerned about your existing home or if you’re thinking of buying a home, our EMF inspection service is available to identify the dangers and to assist you with a plan to reduce the danger. To make an appointment please email us. We inspect houses, apartments, townhouses, condominiums and offices. We also do other types of inspections; see below.

The typical inspection includes an survey of the entire dwelling from an electromagnetic standpoint. Our professional meters and measuring devices show where the “hot spots” and dirty electricity are.

We also perform a lot of ongoing research, and take training to keep up on the latest in EMF information. We are closely associated with the EMF filter manufacturer and with a prominent University professor who is at the forefront of EMF research.

For our surveys, we use professional EMF meters to track EMFs to their source. First we will give you a verbal summary of our findings. Then we’ll provide the results of the survey in a written report. It will show the location and intensity of EMFs within the property and give practical steps on how they can be eliminated or avoided at minimal cost. One of the solutions we will recommend is the installation of Graham-Stetzer filters in your place. They filter out much of the dangerous high frequency energy. We’re getting reports of health changing results from our clients.  We also have a growing list of healthy foods to eat and supplements to take. They can help boost your body’s health and ability to deal with external factors.

Costs: Starting at $200 for a pre-purchase inspection (a definitive way to dertermine if you should buy that new home)
Starting at $300 for a complete inspection of your existing home (includes full report and EMF reduction plan)

Swedish study confirms that EMF is “associated with increased risk of childhood leukaemia”

Updated 12.23.2014

The Concerns About EMF are Real

According to a Swedish study on EMF, Extremely low frequency magnetic fields (of the type that emanates from distribution and use of electricity) are associated with an increased risk of childhood leukaemia in epidemiologic research and have been classified as a possible carcinogen to humans by IARC (WHO‟s International Agency for Research on Cancer). While most research was done one and two decades ago, the association has been confirmed in recent studies. Learn more.

The EMF meters we use in our home inspections … TriField, ESI 24, Stetzer Microsurge meter

Updated 12.23.2014

We created 3 videos for you to see our EMF meters in action.

Video 1 (TriField Meter)

Video 2 (ESI 24 Meter)

Video 3 (STETZERiZER® Microsurge Meter by Graham-Stetzer)

The videos convey a visual sense of how the meters are used. The following section outlines specific details on these meters…

Details on each of the Meters:

1. The Trifield ® Meter gaussmeter is our main device to measure magnetic fields, which can be tricky to measure. If a less sophisticated 1-axis gaussmeter is used, a reading of zero could result even where the field is strong. A 1-axis meter must be oriented correctly to measure the field (which is a vector). The 3-axis Trifield Meter solves that problem by measuring the true strength of the field regardless of which way it is oriented. Therefore, the Trifield Meter can be scanned rapidly across an area without having to stop at each point to search for the orientation that gives a maximum reading. Another section of the meter detects AC electric fields, which can exist independently of AC magnetic field. The third section detects radio/microwave, such as from a leaky microwave oven.

2. The unique ESI 24 meter checks for all 3 types of EMF: magnetic fields, electric fields, and radiowaves/microwaves simultaneously. RED / YELLOW / GREEN LED lights indicate EMF level. The meter has a loudspeaker that gives an audible indication of field strengths. Sound frequency/intensity changes with increasing field strengths. This unit does quick and easy localization of the sources of different types of EMF. The display shows 5 different levels, ranging from extremely low to too strong for prolonged exposure.

3. The STETZERiZER® Microsurge Meter detects and responds to low level high frequency voltages caused by transients and harmonics on power lines. The level of these voltages is measured in GS (Graham-Stetzer) units and varies with electrical equipment and loads. We use this device in conjunction with STETZERiZER® filters. Wherever the measurements are too high in the home, we plug in a filter. The average home needs 15 to 20 filters before its environment is effectively “cleaned up”.

We do EMF home and office inspections in Ontario Canada. We inspect houses, apartments, townhouses, and condominiums. We also do other types of inspections as requested.

We sell and install Stetzer filters and do EMF home inspections in Toronto Ontario and surrounding area.

How to measure EMF in the home or office. We use at least 3 meters to measure for harmful levels of Electric, Magnetic, and Radio frequencies. Here’s a helpful chart showing what we measure for.

Updated 12.23.2014

We measure for EMFs that exceed the guidelines set by such authoritative organizations as the The Institute of Building Biology + Ecology Neubeuern (IBN). The institute was founded in 1983. Their mission is to present its clients with objective information and to offer a holistic approach to building biology. The institute is economically and politically independent.

Reducing EMF levels in your home, what to do in addition to a home inspection.

Updated 12.23.2014

Powerlines

What Can You Do in addition to a HOME INSPECTION and the many inevitable remediation steps that come as a result? Although we may have helped you move your bed to a better part of the room, installed Graham Stetzer filters, and dozens of other things, there’s more.  Often, an EMF Home Inspection (home survey) may also identify high readings in your plumbing or electrical system as well. This will require changes to your electrical and plumbing systems, such as the rewiring and changing of outlets and switches.

In addition, you should remove all grounding wires from the copper pipes that go along the ceiling of your basement. These wires will cause High EMF readings in the floor directly above.

Also be sure to Install a dielectric union to cut the flow of electricity along your water pipes. You don’t want grounding to be accomplished by means of water pipes, you want the electrical wire to go along the lower part of the basement wall, and grounded to the intake valve below the dielectric union. This will divert high EMFs away from your house.

If you have cable, you might also consider putting an in-line isolator on the cable connection to your home.

For futher information, please contact Paul Singer, EMF consultant.

What are the effects of Cell Phone radiation on the brain? Information on how to minimize the risk.

Updated 12.23.2014

What are the effects of Mobile Phone radiation on the brain? Here’s how to minimize the risk.

This subject is still being researched, but concerns are being voiced by even the most conservative of authorities. Until we know more, it’s prudent to minimize exposure. Here’s a video with more expert dialog on the subject.

And here’s a helpful list…

  1. Use your cell phone on speakerphone where practical. A quiet room is a perfect place.
  2. Get yourself an air tube headset. I believe the new RF3 design with Aircom 2 technology is the best headset on the market. Others may actually increase the amount of radiation emitted.
  3. Keep your phone as far away from your body as possible. The reduction in radiation exposure improves as you keep your phone away from your body. Ideal is arms-length away.
  4. Limit your cell phone use. Mobile phones constantly search for signals thus emitting EMR while you’re using them.
  5. Use it on Airplane Mode as much as possible, and turn it off when not needed. You can compose emails while the phone is in airplane mode. Simply hit the send button and one or more messages will be saved in your draft folder. Next time you turn it on, they’ll send automatically.
