What is EMF
Body and Mind from EMF
1. What is
EMR & EMF?
The world suffers from
"electromagnetic contamination", "e-smog", or "Electromagnetic pollution". The widespread use
of technology that radiates EMF (Electro-Magnetic Field), EMR (Electro-Magnetic Radiation), and
ELF (Extremely Low Frequency) constantly bombards the human body affecting its
"EMF Pollution may be the most significant
form of pollution
that human activity has produced in this century,
all the more dangerous because it is invisible and
Radiation) is a term used to describe an invisible form of man-made frequencies, transmitted
through the atmosphere. Some common forms of EMR are: TV and Radio waves, Microwaves, Radar, X
Fields) is a term used to describe the invisible electric and magnetic fields radiating away
from man-made alternating electrical current. EMF radiate from all electrical appliances in the
home, office or factory, in cars, trucks and buses, also overhead tram and train
Together, these are usually
referred to as "Electro-Pollution" or simply as EMF.
NOTE: Often EMI, EMF, and
EMR are used interchangeably
to describe the same thing: unwanted man-made
EMFs Hazardous to Our Health?
Can electromagnetic fields
(EMF) from power lines, home wiring, airport and military radar, substations, transformers,
computers and appliances cause brain tumors, leukemia, birth defects, miscarriages, chronic
fatigue, headaches, cataracts, heart problems, stress. nausea, chest pain, forgetfulness,
cancer and other health problems?
pollution is killing us, do something about it.
the heart of the matter is a relatively simple and well-understood physical phenomenon: When an
electric current passes through a wire, it generates an electromagnetic field that exerts
forces on surrounding objects, whatever that object might be --- human cells
Time, the Wall Street
Journal, Business Week and popular computer publications
and even the Department of Energy and the EPA report that "It has now become generally accepted
that there are, indeed, biological effects due to EMF field exposure."
Hundreds of studies had
been conducted worldwide which indicate a link between EMFs and serious health problems. Many
lab tests have confirmed that EMFs affect living cells in many harmful ways.
We don't realize that we are exposed to
hundreds of thousands times more electromagnetic fields than in past generations. In fact:
"Scientists estimate that your daily exposure to EMF radiation is 100 Million Times higher
today than it was in your grandparents' time!" (reported by EMFNews.org).
A growing body of
scientific evidence suggests that invisible electromagnetic fields (EMFs) -- created by
everything from high-voltage utility company lines to personal computers, microwave ovens, TVs
and even electric blankets -- are linked to a frightening array of cancers and other serious
health problems in children and adults. EMFs can also disturb the production of the hormone
melatonin, which is linked with sleep patterns. There is strong evidence that children exposed
to EMFs have a higher risk of leukemia. One indicated a tie between occupational exposure to
EMFs and Alzheimer' s disease.
There is much controversy
over the effects of electromagnetic fields (EMF) on human health. One thing is certain, that
the level of electro-pollution (electro-magnetic fields) is at an all time high and rising, and
coincidentally, so are human diseases.
Scientific studies have
shown that EMF exposure has a cumulative effect, increasing over time. Be sure to reduce the
risks for your children who face a lifetime of exposure and those with poorer health
conditions, they are especially at risk.
Depletion of your body's
bio energy causes a lowered energetic capability at a fundamental atomic level. Disturbance of
the body's inherent electronic signaling system results in disruptions to cellular functions
and a compromised immune system. Quite simply, your body systems are no longer able to work in
the way that they would if such destructive interference from EMF was not imposed on
EMFs, the Amish Live a Happier, Healthier,
Longer Life !!!
One study conducted by Dr. Judith Westman, a
geneticist and division director of Human Genetics at The Ohio State University, examined low
cancer rates in Amish living without on-grid electricity. The 8-year study on 24 different
types of cancer within the Amish community involved a door-to-door survey, where she discovered
that the Amish "cancer rate was 40% lower than the rest of the population in Ohio."
According to Dr. Samuel
Milham, author of "Dirty Electricity: Electrification and the Diseases of Civilization" - the
growing demand for electricity is directly associated to the rapid rise in chronic diseases. Is
it just a coincidence that Amish people - who avoid the use of public utility power - enjoy
much lower levels of disease? We don't think so!!!
3. The Medical
Just how EMFs affect humans
is still not entirely known (and will be never admitted by the Industry or by Government).
Researchers are trying to pinpoint ways in which EMFs might cause cells to grow and multiply
Some studies suggest that EMFs may promote
cancer by interfering with the transmission of calcium across the cell membrane, a flow
that governs such processes as muscle contraction, egg fertilization, cell division, and
growth. EMFs may also disturb a cell's ability to process hormone, enzyme, and other
biological signals that regulate normal growth.
EMFs are known to affect
nerve impulses. Melatonin, a regulatory hormone secreted by the pineal gland near the brain,
ordinarily stimulates immune responses and may suppress tumor growth. Reduced melatonin
production has been linked to breast and prostate cancer. Melatonin secretion in turn is
controlled by norepinephrine, a neurotransmitter in the brain. Receptors for its relative, the
hormone epinephrine, are disturbed by EMFs.
A San Antonio researcher
discovered human cancer cells exposed to 60 Hz fields (the frequency of a high-voltage line)
grew as much as 24 times as fast as unexposed cells and showed greatly increased resistance to
destruction by the cells of the body's defense system.
4. EMFs - The Dangers of Modern Convenience
We are immersed in a world
of technology, unable to escape from the moment our electronic alarm clocks awake us in the
morning until the moment we snuggle under our electric blankets at the end of the day. We have
been raised with the luxuries of modern appliances to simplify our lives.
Unfortunately, today we are
faced with illnesses that were rare if not completely unheard of just a short century ago.
While our technology continues to advance us to new heights, very little attention has been
paid to the toll that such feats are exacting on our health. And it was not until very recently
that a focus has been placed on the dangers associated with the very “conveniences” that were
intended to improve the quality of our lives.
In the 1970’s researchers established a link
between childhood leukemia and electrical power lines, creating an uproar in rural
communities across America. It was found that power lines, like all electrical devices,
emit electromagnetic fields (EMFs) that had the ability to cause cancer in children. Since
this discovery, more researchers have devoted their attention to determining the full
extent to which EMFs impact our health. While the research is relatively new, the findings
thus far are frightening.
All power operated
appliances and machinery, both alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC), emit
electromagnetic waves. As the electromagnetic waves radiate away from their origin, they
decrease in strength rapidly, dropping off almost completely at about 4 feet. Such
electromagnetic fields are measured in terms of Gauss (G) or milligauss (mG), 1/1,000 of a
Gauss. The electrical wiring in your home, when operating properly, emits between 0.5 and
0.9mG. The EPA's recommended safety standard is 1mG.
turning out to be a far worse environmental disaster, affecting far more
people, than toxic waste, radiation or asbestos.
EMFs have been linked to a host of health
concerns, including miscarriage, birth defects, breast cancer (in both men and women),
adult and childhood leukemia, depression, suicide, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s
disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease and ALS.
Researchers believe that,
rather than causing direct harm, EMFs create subtle changes within the body that lead to
serious diseases. Extensive research has been conducted examining the effects of EMFs on a
hormone in the body called melatonin. Melatonin is secreted by the pineal gland in the center
of the brain and controls the sleeping and waking cycles, enhances the immune system, lowers
cholesterol and blood pressure and is a potent antioxidant that plays a part in preventing
cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes and heart disease.
Studies indicate that EMF exposure can shut
down melatonin secretion in the body. Researchers at the University of North Carolina
believe that the decreased levels of melatonin stemming from EMF exposure may cause
depression and suicide.
Further research indicates
that EMFs actually have the ability to alter the hormones estrogen as well as
A study released in the
Environmental Health Science Perspectives journal, indicates that exposure to EMFs from
everyday household appliances has the ability to alter brain cell DNA. Additionally, EMF
exposure increases the number of free radicals in the body, which wreak havoc on the damaged
DNA cells. Cells experience “cell suicide” in which a cell self-destructs because it cannot
repair itself. Most interestingly, their research suggests that even brief exposure can pose a
problem, as it appears damage builds up over time.
Before 1920, we lived in
harmony with the earth, without electricity, with just natural background earth EMF. Starting
in the 1920s the U.S. and the entire industrialized world were electrified. Therefore, you were
conceived within this man-made EMF environment and have been exposed to this your entire
live or work near power lines, you cannot afford NOT to have some sort of
protection with you all the time!
Many scientists have
studied just how the naturally generated EMFs of the earth contain information that
provides timing mechanisms for many of the body’s functions. The man-made AC electrical
system creates a sort of electrical fence (a barrier) of chaotic pulsing electrical
currents (60 times a second) that separates us from the information stored in the earth
necessary for optimal functioning.
The power transmission
lines, you house electricity, and radio/microwave transmissions create a subliminal state of
constant stress that over time degrades the immune system. A wide range of studies has
documented the debilitating effects of this electro-pollution induced stress on the immune
system. Manmade EMFs also paralyze the body's electrically based healing
Some scientists are coming to the conclusion
that power line electromagnetic fields should be classified as a "probable human
When people develop health
problems such as brain tumors, it may be that the tumors are not the direct result of the EMF
radiation itself but rather a side effect of the blood-brain barrier opening. This would allow
toxins and pathogens being carried by the blood to enter the brain. Because of the relative low
level of immune activity in the brain, the frequent exposure to the toxins and pathogens being
transported in the blood could be one of the causes of cell dysfunction and degeneration
leading to the formation of tumors and other problems.
Cell Phones & Microwave Towers
Many scientists and government agencies in
Europe have already accepted that EMF from cell phones does pose health risks. "Scientists
do not argue anymore whether mobile phones are harmful, but how harmful they

Headache and other
neuropsychological symptoms occur in users of cellular telephones, and controversy exists
concerning risks for brain cancer. We hypothesize these effects result from the head serving as
an antenna and brain tissue as a radio receiver. Brain cells and tissues demodulate the
cell-phone's various frequencies from the radio frequency carrier. Low audio frequencies in the
ranges of alpha and beta waves affect these waves and thereby influence brain
The effect of microwaves
from a mobile phone has an impact on the stability of cells in the body. The main effects are
neurological, causing headaches, memory loss and also sleeping disorders.
Researchers found that
volunteers had a disturbed sleep pattern for as much as 50 minutes after being exposed to the
radiation. Even a short exposure to electromagnetic fields emitted by mobile phones has an
effect on brain physiology.
"Mobile Phones may
Trigger Alzheimer's disease"
There are studies that
report that carrying cell phone near groin could impair sperm count as well as sperm health.
Furthermore, it has been studied that microwaves from cell phones also increase production of
cellulite that increases the signs of premature aging.
So don't allow yourself to
be exposed to health risks invisibly imposed by EMF radiation from electric & magnetic
fields and pulsed microwave transmission signals, which are at frequencies that disrupt your
brain and cellular functions. Cell phone and cordless phone use does carry well-established
Children are especially vulnerable
Children are more
vulnerable than adults to EMFs because of their developing nervous systems and their thin
skulls. In today's world children also have heavy exposure to EMFs from computer games,
extensive TV viewing, cell phones, etc.
Migraine Prevalence Tripled in Children due to EMF"
Of critical importance to
all parents is that some studies have suggested that children exposed to magnetic fields
of between two and three milligauss or above experienced a significantly increased risk of
developing cancer. Since ambient levels of two to three milligauss can routinely be
measured in buildings within 50 to 150 feet of wires carrying strong electric current,
these findings are especially troublesome.
Studies have found that
children who lived near big power lines for over 25 years had twice the risk of
a QuWave Harmonizer for your kids room, and for their laptop
When children sleep in a
home protected from EMFs, their nervous systems will naturally heal and regenerate at night,
thus providing protection against hyperactivity, ADHD, and other problems.
Our QuWave products have
received many reports of health improvements including reduction of ADHD symptoms, improved
school grades and improved social behavior. As a child grows older and spends more time in
front of a computer in school or at work, parents might consider the purchase of a Computer
QuWave Harmonizer Model.

8. The Negative Effects of EMF Radiation on Our
Many scientists, public health and public
policy experts have documented the scientific evidence on health impacts of exposure to
electromagnetic fields. When the body ages, lacks exercise and proper diet, the
electro-pollution intensifies vulnerability to all kinds of sickness and disease.
Diseases linked to excessive exposure to EMF include:
• Diseases of the nervous
• Damage causes cell mutation and
initiating cancer cells
• Weakens the stress
• Chronic allergic
• Reduced sperm
• Sleep disruption
The Swedish HARMONY Study,
commissioned by the Gerontological Society of America, concludes that work-related exposure to
EMF may be associated with Dementia and Alzheimer's (among many other diseases). The Study
finds that EMF exposure may increase the risk of dementia when the clinical onset occurs before
the age of 75, even when results are adjusted for previously identified risk factors for
Dementia, such as age, gender, level of education, complexity of work, and cardiovascular risk
factors. The association between extremely low-frequency magnetic fields (ELF/EMF) and the risk
of Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease can be confirmed with valid occupational and diagnostic
data from 9,508 individuals. The complete findings are presented at the US National Library of
Medicine, National Institutes of Health.
"Companies won't admit that
EMFs are risky, because they will become liable. And the government won't, because it is the
largest user of the electromagnetic spectrum, especially for military communications. Our whole
economy depends on them now."
The high electromagnetic frequencies and
radiation generated by industrial plants and equipment, have a negative effect on the
human brain, although the electrical companies and the manufacturers of cell phones do not
want to admit this. Research seems to prove that high electro-magnetic fields do transport
heavy metals to the brain (which are normally filtered out) and have a negative health
Not surprisingly, as people
begin to focus on the problem of EMFs, property values near power lines and electric
substations have been plummeting, and numerous lawsuits have been filed.

the effects of cell phones, computer screens and other electromagnetic fields on our health.
The device manufacturers naturally want to minimize any apparent risks from the use of their

significant are some of the foreign studies. Canadian researchers had found a high rate of
leukemia among children whose mothers had worked at sewing machines while pregnant. Checks
showed the operators were exposed to more electromagnetic radiation than people who work on
power lines or in power stations.
To some, especially the
families of people with unexplained cancers, the sheer volume of research that has been carried
out on this issue suggests there must be a cancer connection and perhaps a cover-up. Their
suspicion is heightened by the fact that many of the studies are funded by the utility
industry, which would be directly affected by the studies' outcomes. (It's like the tobacco
industry making a study showing smoking is safe --- would you believe them
Even scientists who have
failed to find a reason for the apparent link refuse to say it is safe to live near a
high-voltage power line.
The report leaked by the National Council on
Radiation Protection recommended changing the safety limit of 0.2 microteslas (a very weak
field compared to those generated by household appliances). A person standing one foot
away from a vacuum cleaner or electric drill can be exposed to anywhere between two and 20
Concerns have also been
raised about magnetic fields given off by household wiring, high-current conductors concealed
in walls, ceilings and floors of commercial office buildings, and by high-voltage transformers
that can be found in almost any large building.

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, WA. confirmed that telephone linemen,
electricians and electric-power workmen are developing breast cancer at six times the expected

dying. Alarmingly, of women who develop the disease, 55% have no known risk factors. Breast
cancer mortality rates are five times lower in Asia and Africa than in industrialized North
America and northern Europe regions where EMFs are omnipresent.
Exposure to EMFs has also
shown women to be more prone to PMS, Post-Partum, Anxiety, Depression, and other psychological

If your home has high EMF
readings, it is important to determine the sources of the EMF so that remedial action can be
taken (if possible). Many times a particular room will have a higher EMF reading. Check to see
if the electricity is coming into the house on the wall outside that room. When this is the
case, it is usually a good idea to block off that room and only use it for storage

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. 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.
Always remember that EMFs
pass right through walls. The EMF you are being exposed to could be radiating from the next
room, or from outside your home.
