Dr. Olle Johansson, a neuroscientist who is a professor at the renowned Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, recently spoke in front of an audience of health professionals and medical practitioners at a seminar on Environment in Health in Barcelona. He opened his lecture by going over the known negative health effects of EMFs
Dr. Henry Lai, the first researcher to show double-strand breaks in DNA caused by exposure to electromagnetic radiation (EMR), talks about the many peer-reviewed studies showing harmful health effects from long-term exposure to low levels of EMR.
Paul Waddell from NZ – completed his Certificate in EMF Testing at the Australian College of Environmental Studies.
He uses Spectrum Analysers for both low and high-frequency analysis, Gigahertz Solutions meters for high-frequency peak readings, a body voltage meter, and a Stetzermeter for Dirty Electricity
The Top Five Sources of EMF Exposure
- Electric fields: These are the fields that emanate from anything that has voltage; basically anything electric, such as lamps, electrical wiring, outlets, extension cords, electrical appliances, and power outlets.Electric fields can affect the electrical communication in your body, such as your brainwaves, or the ability of your neurons to fire and communicate. It can also impede inter-cell communication anywhere in your body. Health problems that can manifest as a result of this type of exposure include neurological- and behavioral changes, altered cell growth, cell mutations, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and even cancer.
- Magnetic fields: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has labeled magnetic fields a class 3 carcinogen. These fields can occur when there is an imbalance in the electrical wiring, and around electrical motors such as the motor in your refrigerator.A MAJOR source of magnetic fields is next to the main power meter for your house. You definitely want to avoid sleeping up against a wall that has a power meter on the outside. Electric clock radios can also generate magnetic fields.Fortunately, the effect drops off dramatically with distance, so simply putting some distance—typically about five or six feet—between yourself and the source is usually sufficient to drastically reduce or eliminate the danger.
- Power lines, whether above- or underground.
- Metal plumbing: Yes, older metal plumbing can frequently carry a current.
- Wireless communications: This includes wireless power meters (so-called SmartMeters), cell phones, cell towers, wireless routers, and cordless phones. Most of these types of technologies expose you to both electric- and magnetic fields.
