Let’s take a deeper look into EMF and the immunity, your physical well-being, and the precautionary measures to undertake to stay protected against it.
There is a lot of scientific research on electromagnetic field exposure that shows how WiFi, Bluetooth, cellphones, and other smart devices release a form of EMF. This EMF is known as radiofrequency radiation or microwave radiation and can cause diseases.
For a long time, we have been told by companies selling these devices and medical companies how EMF exposure is harmless. However, this article shows the dangerous correlation between EMF and the immunity.
EMF and the Immunity
Scientific studies have shown that there are several health effects of recurrent exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF). These effects range from sleep troubles to cancerous growths. Also, your immune system suffers from EMF radiation in the body. This changes your body’s response to allergies and diseases.
The immunity system’s role is to protect your body against foreign bodies such as viruses, bacteria, parasites, and fungi. It does this by attacking and neutralizing foreign objects.
According to scientific tests, extended use of modern technology such as microwave ovens and cell phones disrupts your immune system functioning. Hence, EMF can alter its response whenever exposure occurs.
Therefore, its ability to judge between the harmful microbes and safe cells is reduced. Due to this, the immune system can under-react to some threats to the body and over-react to others.
Your immune system may fail to respond with the right force to threats it is supposed to detect and fight. When it under-reacts this way, it becomes a suppressed immune system. This may lead to severe illnesses and colds. You may also take a longer time to recover.
On the other hand, the immune system may overreact in attacking the body without any visible threats. Then, your immunity attacks your healthy cells which become unable to judge correctly. This results in autoimmune problems and increase in allergies.
EMF Suppresses the Immune System
Aside from EMF and the immunity as a whole, we have to look at how this radiation suppresses the overall work of your immune system. The immune system of a healthy person fights off disease-causing agents. EMF radiation acts in the same way as immunosuppressive drugs.
When immunosuppression occurs, the body might suffer several related diseases. Thus, your body may lack the ability to defeat the disease or take quite a while to recover. For instance, a common cold may take a long time to clear. Likewise, a small cut on the skin may need serious medical care.
EMF leads to autoimmunity
Your immune system’s proper functioning can also be altered in other ways. Due to exposure to EMF, it can respond to stimuli differently than it should. This is referred to as autoimmunity.
In the condition, the immune system attacks the body cells and tissues. At this stage, the immunity fails to tell the difference between harmful and healthy cells or foreign bodies. Hence, your immune system becomes unable to make the right health decisions.
It may also end up attacking your skin and joints. Examples of autoimmune diseases are rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, and Psoriasis among others.
EMF Causes Allergic Reactions
Autoimmunity can also lead to your immune system becoming overly sensitive to foreign bodies. This condition is called hypersensitivity.
When it happens, the immune system ends up fighting foreign bodies which are not harmful to your body. This leads to an allergic reaction. Having frequent allergies means that your immune system is not working properly.
EMF causes Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS)
EHS is a specific type of hypersensitivity whose occurrence is increasing worldwide. The condition, also known as ‘WiFi allergy’, is a medical condition whereby the body starts showing alarming symptoms. This happens due to a person’s sensitivity to electromagnetic fields.
Symptoms are much like those of an allergic reaction. They include redness, and a tingling and burning sensation. One may also feel fatigued, dizzy, nauseated, have digestive problems, difficulty in concentration, and heart palpitations.
In mild cases, you can prevent EHS by avoiding exposure to EMF. In extreme cases, the person may need a change of lifestyle or move to EMF free areas.
EMF can make a disease stronger
EMF can strengthen the power of the disease. It causes microbes to multiply faster and grow more virulent and get stronger on exposure. Lyme disease is an example of disease that EMF exposure can trigger.
EMF causes rapid mold growth
Lyme disease patients have prolonged recovery due to the presence of toxic mold. Mold survive through consuming humidity and organic materials in the home.
With increased exposure to EMF, mold growth is greater. Mold produces biotoxins 600 times more in EMF conditions. This is what causes slow recovery in the Lyme disease patient.
Children are More Exposed to EMF
Compared to adults, children stand a greater risk of harm from EMF due to their higher exposure rate. Their thin skulls and bones mean that radiation can reach the brain faster. The absorption rate of a cellphone’s radiation in a 10-year-old child is 153% more than that of an adult.
Furthermore, in children, EMF can likely cause autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and asthma.
EMF and the Immunity: Conclusion
Our survival depends on a well-functioning immune system. Proper functioning of your immune system can suffer under EMF exposure. Therefore, you can strengthen your body’s natural defenses by reducing exposure to EMF radiation.
This may occur at home, at work, or even at school. Wherever there is electromagnetic equipment, the risk of exposure is quite high.
