Electromagnetic fields (EMF’s) occur naturally wherever there
is the movement of an electron. The field is composed of an electric
field and a magnetic field. As science has progressed through the
years, man has discovered how to transmit information though the ether
by creating EMF’s through the use of transmission antennas,
these fields can then be received by a receiving antenna and the information
can be extracted by the oscillations in the EMF’s.
Mobile phones transmit and receive waves, whereas radios only receive.
Lately there has been much controversy surrounding the effects of
these fields on our environment and bodies. It is important to realize
the risks and how to avoid them.
In humans EMF absorption seems to be responsible for brain tumors
among excessive mobile phone users. The tumors usually occur above
the ear, which is exactly where the mobile phone transmitting antenna
is. Hence it is useful to use an earpiece and hold the phone at a
distance from the head whenever possible. Holding the phone at a distance
will decrease the amount of EMF absorbed and hence decreases the risk
of developing a brain tumor.
Dr. Robert O. Becker a pioneer in the field of bio electric science
and others concluded that the biological effects of EMF include: 1.
Affect developing cells. 2. Activation of proto-oncogenes, which induce
certain cancers. 3. Influence embryo development and cause birth defect.
4. Affect the production of neurochemicals and induce behavior change.
5. Induce overproduction of free radicals 6. Change the bodies’
biorhythm. 6. Reducing the bodies’ ability to cope with stress
and lower the immune function. 7. Dysfunction of the autonomic nervous
system, headaches, depression, sleeping disorder, deterioration of
the memory, learning disabilities, chronic fatigue, etc… It
is also noted from a variety of evidence that the EMF’s affect
the central nervous system.
The EMF’s generated by household appliances decreases greatly
as you move away from the device. Televisions, microwaves, fridges,
hair driers, washing machines and anything else with an electrical
motor emits a fairly large EMF, keeping a distance from these appliances
while in operation is useful. Computer monitors emit a fairly low
EMF but the close working proximity and long hours spent in front
of them is a concern. Using an EMF shield on a traditional monitor
is useful. Even more desirable is an LCD monitor, which emits almost
no field but they can be costly. People suffering from headaches while
using the computer should try an LCD monitor. Traditional monitors
flicker on and off at about 75 times per second, which is undetectable
to our direct vision, but the unconscious mind picks up these flickering
images through our peripheral vision, which is much more sensitive
to light than our direct vision. This may cause headaches, but an
LCD monitor has no flickering (refreshing) so it is much healthier.
A healthy human is much less susceptible to a brain tumor than an
unhealthy one because an unhealthy human has a lot of free radicals
floating around in their system. These free radicals are basically
particles in the body with a net negative or positive charge. Particles
with a net charge get affected by electromagnetic fields more than
ordinary particles. Stress and poor diet can increase the amount of
free radicals in your system. Eating lots of antioxidants which are
contained in fruits and vegetables can repair these particles. Meditating
is also an excellent way to neutralize the damaged particles.
It is also important to realize that not all electromagnetic fields
cause problems for humans. The mobile phone radiation is a problem
because the microwave frequency used to transmit the fields has a
similar wavelength to that of a water molecule. This means that water
molecules are capable of absorbing the energy from the wave. Hence
the ability to cook in a microwave. It should be noted that the relationship
between antioxidants and microwaves has been simplified for the purpose
of this article. Radio waves on the other hand have a much longer
wavelength than microwaves and pass directly through humans. Minimal
energy is absorbed and they are much less damaging.
People should also avoid living within 50 meters of high voltage
power lines. The air surrounding the lines can be as much as 10 times
more polluted than normal air. Normal power lines are ok.
A healthy and happy human, who doesn’t use a mobile phone for
more than 30 minutes a day, is in a very low risk category for developing
a tumor. But a human who is unhealthy and stressed should be careful.
We should also realize that electromagnetic waves bring much benefit
to society through distribution of information. This information helps
Master spread her message. We need to moderate our lives and accept
the benefits and pitfalls of science and technology.
