So how serious is EMF radiation to our health anyway?

emf_spectrum

Good question.  We live in a wireless world, and it gets more so every day. Wireless technology (whether cell phones, wifi, cordless phones, Blu-tooth, etc) produces high levels of EMF. Hate to burst your bubble, but wires can also produce EMF if they have high voltage electricity running through them. But should we care?

The simple answer is “yes.” We should care because, like it or not, our health is being affected. We may not die tomorrow, but the World Health Organization and leading tech-savvy governments and independent authorities around the world indicate strong concerns based on recent studies. Check out this helpful article by the respected Prevention Magazine.

So how can I know if my environment is bombarded with unsafe electromagnetic fields? Give us a call or drop us an email. We’re here to help. We do EMF inspections, both locally and remotely. If you live on planet Earth, we can measure your environment and give you the honest goods on how bad it is and what you can do about it.

We measure for the 3 types of electromagnetic radiation that can cause health problems. Using professional EMF meters, we can tell you whether your property is safe or not and what can be done about it.

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.

Dr. Mercola on Electro Magnetic Fields (EMF) and which of them can be hazardous to our health.

Updated 12.23.2014

Dr. Mercola on Electro Magnetic Fields (EMF) and which of them can be hazardous to our health.Dr. Mercola on EMF. A worthy read. (Abridged)

Can electromagnetic fields (EMF) from power lines, home wiring, radar, computers and appliances cause brain tumors, leukemia, birth defects, miscarriages, chronic fatigue, headaches, cataracts, heart problems, stress. nausea, chest pain, forgetfulness, cancer & other health problems?

A growing number of experts are convinced that the threat is real.

  • Dr. David Carpenter, Dean at the School of Public Health, State University of New York: “up to 30% of all childhood cancers come from exposure to EMFs.”
  • The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA): “There is reason for concern,” advising “prudent avoidance”. 
  • Martin Halper, EPA Director of Analysis and Support: “I have never seen a set of epidemiological studies that remotely approached the weight of evidence that we’re seeing with EMFs. Clearly there is something here.”
  • Paul Brodeur in the New Yorker Magazine, June 1989, and Time Magazine 1990: these articles had a catalytic effect on scientists, reporters and concerned people throughout the world.
  • US Department of Energy (November 1989): “It has now become generally accepted that there are, indeed, biological effects due to field exposure.”

Housing Concerns

In addition to the long-term health concerns, buying a house with high fields will be an economic disaster. In a few years, when power line radiation is as well known as asbestos and radon, a house with high fields will be practically impossible to sell. Already there are hundreds of lawsuits regarding EMFs and property devaluation.

Power Lines

All power lines radiate electromagnetic fields. The question is: how much are the power lines near YOUR home radiating?

Transformers

A key component of a utility’s electrical distribution network depends upon numerous, small transformers mounted on power poles. A transformer looks like a small metal trash can, usually cylindrical… Many people don’t realize that when they see a transformer, the power line feeding the transformer is 4000 to 13,800 volts.

The transformer then reduces the voltage to the 120/240 volts needed by nearby homes. Since these transformers can be seen in almost every neighborhood, they are a source of concern.

Home Wiring

If your home has high EMF readings, it is important to determine the sources of the EMF so that remedial action can be taken …

Computers

The Swedish safety standard, effective 711/90, specifies a maximum of 0.25 mG at 50 cm from the display. Many US manufactured computers have EMFs of 5 – 100 mG at this distance. And know this too: the screens placed over monitors do NOT block EMFs. Not even a lead screen will block ELF and VLF magnetic fields.

Electric Clocks

Electric clocks have a very high magnetic field, as much as 5 to 10 mG up to three feet away…

Fluorescent Lights

Fluorescent lights produce much more EMFs than incandescent bulbs…

Microwave Ovens and Radar

Microwave ovens and radar from military installations and airports emit two types of radiation — microwave and ELF. Microwaves are measured in milliwatt per centimeter squared (mW/cm2) As of 1/1/93, the U.S. safety limit for microwave exposure is 1 mW/cm2, down from a previous 10 mW/cm2. The Russian safety limit is .01 mW/cm2. All microwave ovens leak and exceed the Russian safety limit. In addition, recent Russian studies have shown that normal microwave cooking coverts food protein molecules into carcinogenic substances.

When measuring microwaves from military and airport radar sources, 100% accurate readings can only be found with extremely expensive digital peak-hold meters…

Telephones and Answering Machines

Telephones can emit surprisingly strong EMFs, especially from the handset. This is a problem because we hold the telephone so close to our head. Measure the EMF’s from the ear piece and the mouth piece before buying a phone.

Some brands emit no measurable fields and others emit strong fields that travel several inches….right into your brain. Answering machines, particular those with adapter plugs (mini-transformers), give off high levels of EMFs.

Electric Razors and Hair Dryers

Electric razors and hair dryers emit EMFs as high as 200 to 400 mG…

Prudent Avoidance

Electricity is an inseparable part of our modern day society. This means that EMFs will continue to be all around us. But as Discover Magazine postulated, aside from making our life easier, is electricity also making our lives shorter?

Most experts agree that limited, non-chronic exposure to EMFs is not a threat. For example, it is probably acceptable for a person to be near a toaster in the morning.

BUT, it is not advisable for a person to sleep under an electric blanket, up close, live near a powerline/substation, and sleep in a room where the power enters the home. This person is under an extreme case of chronic exposure. This condition, unfortunately, applies to millions of Americans.

If you wish to follow the EPA’s advice and practice “prudent avoidance” then these words of advice are offered:

  • Measure your home, work and school environments
  • Don’t let your children play near power lines, transformers, radar domes and microwave towers.
  • Avoid areas where the field is above 1 mG. Measure the EMFs from appliances both when they are operating and when they are turned off. Some appliances (like TVs) are still drawing current even when they are off.
  • Don’t sleep under an electric blanket or on a waterbed. If you insist on using these, unplug them before going to bed (don’t just turn it off). Even though there is no magnetic field when they are turned off, there may still be a high electric field.
  • Don’t sit too close to your TV set. Distance yourself at least 6 feet away. Use a Gauss meter to help you decide where it is safe to sit.
  • Rearrange your office and home area so that you are not exposed to EMFs from the sides/backs of electric appliances and computers. In the home, it is best that all major electrical appliances, such as computers, TVs, refrigerators etc, be placed up against outside walls. That way you are not creating an EMF field in the adjoining room.
  • Don’t sit too close to your computer. Computer monitors vary greatly in the strength of their EMFs, so you should check yours with a meter. Don’t stand close to your microwave oven. Move all electrical appliances at least 6 feet from your bed. Eliminate wires running under your bed. Eliminate dimmers and 3-way switches.
  • Be wary of cordless appliances such as electric toothbrushes and razors. You may choose not to wear a quartz-analog watch because it radiates pulsating EMFs along your acupuncture meridians.
  • An older mechanical windup watch would be an acceptable alternative. It is also recommended to wear as little jewelry as possible and to take it off at night. Many people have metal sensitivity which can be aggravated by placing it right on the skin. Measure with a gauss meter to be sure.

And last, but not least, always always always remember that EMFs pass right through walls. The EMF you are reading on your Gauss meter could be radiating from the next room…or from outside your home.

Additional Radiation Info:

Eyeglass frames should ideally be made from plastic with no wires in them, otherwise they can serve as an antenna to focus the radio and cellular phone waves directly into your brain.

What EMF Level Is Safe?

There’s a heated debate as to what electromagnetic field (EMF) level is considered safe. Since the experts have not come to an consensus, you’ll have to decide for yourself… Many government and utility documents report the usual ambient level of 60-Hz magnetic field to be 0.5 mG.

Thus, any reading higher than 0.5 mG is above the “usual” ambient exposure. Many experts and public officials, as well as the few governments that have made an effort to offer public protection, have adopted the 3 mG cutoff point. The EPA has proposed a safety standard of 1 mG. Sweden has set a maximum safety limit of 1 mG.

Dr. Robert Becker, an MD who has been studying the effects of EMFs for 20 years, states a lmG safety limit in his book Cross Currents. When electricians try to solve a magnetic field problem they do their best to drop the level to 1 mG or below.

Dr. Nancy Wertheimer, a Ph.D. epidemiologist who has been studying EMFs for 20 years, has been looking at the epidemiological data in a different way — she is trying to associate EMF levels with health rather than disease. The level she is coming up with is a cut off of 1 mG. Russian researchers claim that 1/1000ths of a mG should be the standard.

The BioElectric Body believes that there are several stages of health between “optimum wellness”, “degenerative disease” and “Cancer”. Thus, we maintain our own living and sleeping quarters at 0.5mG and below.

Dr. Mercola recommends measuring EMFs in the home. Did you know that we can measure them for you for less than 1/4 the cost of the meters needed to do the job, and guide you through the process of reducing your health risks?

Are you getting abnormally high electricity bills? Maybe your smart meter is to blame.

Updated 12.23.2014

Some residential customers have been complaining that their electricity bills are higher after smart meters were installed in their homes. This could mean that the new wireless meters are not reading accurately.

Smart meters have been controversial for a number of reasons, especially amid concerns that they emit harmful EMF radiation that could affect the health of the people living in the home.

Are you concerned about Smart Meters and other EMF sources in your home or office? Contact us for a home inspection or office inspection.

How to protect yourself from harmful EMF radiation through a home inspection

Updated 12.23.2014

EMF protection.We help you with practical recommendations for EMF protection. Our package offers the Ultimate Protection from Electromagnetic Radiation.Identifying the Problem: We’ve identified EMFs that are incompatible with the human body such as those produced by lighting, hydro lines, WiFi, cell phones, etc., as a potential threat to our health.

These EMFs can damage the immune system, our brain, heart activity and our body’s ability to heal itself. This is because, biologically disruptive EMFs produce circulating currents in the body that affect:

* the nervous system and energy pathways
* the body’s electromagnetic field
* cellular and DNA function
* the optimal health of our 3 B’s ( our brain, blood, breast )

The Solution

* EMF home inspection
* Installation of Graham Stetzer filters in the home’s wall sockets
* Identification of high RF ( Radio Frequencies ) and various techniques to lower or avoid them
* Measurement of emissions from WiFi and cell phones and techniques to mitigate exposure
* In-home education in EMF Protection

We inspect homes and offices in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) and have affiliates all over the US and Canada. For more information please contact us here.

If WIFI is bad, why don’t they tell us? Could it be that there are health problems related to technology?

Updated 12.23.2014

If WIFI is bad, why don’t they tell us?Could it really be that there are health problems related to technology?

Judging by the warnings from Switzerland’s Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) website, it seems that the Swiss health officials might have some insider information – possibly from the World Health Organization that is also based in Switzerland. The WHO is the clearing house for microwave research – right?

If the WHO’s scientists, who live and work in Switzerland, find something is wrong, they will surely want to tell their own citizens and protect their family and children – right? Is this the reason why they have one of the better microwave safety standards in the world?

We do EMF home inspections in the Toronto Ontario area (GTA)

One of the meters we use in our inspections
One of the meters we use in our inspections

What We Do: EMF, inspections, surveys, detection

Updated March 19, 2016

We do EMF home inspections in the greater Toronto area & all over Ontario. This includes existing or pre-purchase houses.


For an appointment, call
  905-719-7030 or  EMAIL.

We inspect houses, apartments, townhouses, and condominiums. We also do other types of inspections; see below.

A typical inspection includes testing of the entire dwelling from an electromagnetic standpoint. We use professional meters and measuring devices to find out where the “hot spots” are.

Our team has a wealth of research, and is constantly taking courses and 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.

If you have health concerns about overhead power lines, mobile phone masts or about the invisible EMFs of your electrical appliances, then this may be for you. Employers may wish to evaluate employee workspaces for Health and Safety purposes. We will identify electromagnetic fields, radio frequencies, and dirty electricity.

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 measure for:

  1. Harmful magnetic frequencies (aiming for below 1 milligaus and ideally below 0.2 mG)
  2. Harmful electrical frequencies (aiming for less than about 20 volts per meter and ideally below 6 V/m)
  3. Harmful radio frequencies (aiming for low row readings where safe varies by frequency)

The cost of a survey depends on the complexity of the situation, size of property and distance from our office in the GTA. Note, we view the GTA (Greater Toronto area) as “local.”

EMF inspections start from as little as $200 for pre-purchase and $300 for full surveys, and neighbouring properties may be able to share the cost of a survey. Please get in touch for details and a competitive estimate.
