Did you know?
- Radio frequency radiation levels from iPads are about 1 V/m, with spikes around 6 V/m.
- The BioInitiative Report 2012 recommends a precautionary level of approximately 0.03 V/m – 0.05 V/m.
- Some laptops emit up to 150mG! (That’s magnetic fields.)
- Prolonged exposure to levels of 2 mG and above have been associated with cancer and immune system effects.
- EMFs not only come from your computer screen, the electronics inside your computer generate a powerful EMF.
Most people are unaware of these facts.
But everybody should know them.
This information is taken from an info-graphic (information presented in a graphic form) on EMFs that was sent to me recently by the people at Harapad.
The info-graphic contains other interesting facts, that’s why I’m sharing it with you.
Computers, laptops and tablets can be an absolute minefield when it comes to EMF exposures.
This article summarizes the problems and presents solutions.
Thank you Lloyd! I hve been sharing some of your recent posts on FB EHS sites. You rock!
Hi What can you say about microwave leakage? does this refer to leakage when device not turned on? Will my RF meter tell me about this—– as i would assume it would? Cheers
I found this infographic really interesting, especially the part about iPads. I was wondering if you had tested the harapad to see if it really works as they say. Also I would be very curious to know if other similar products on the market actually work, because at the price they usually sell for I feel like making sure they do what they say is important. I use a pong case on my phone (which I think you reviewed) that redirects the RF radiation away from the body, but I doubt it does anything against ELF (problematic when you carry your phone in your pocket). That’s why I started looking into other cases and all I found was the DefenderShield and Harapad (not really a case), but because they are the only ones on the market I wonder if they may be playing on that fact a bit for sales. Is there any way that you could test these products a give your recommendation, it would be great to know where to put our money when looking to get effective EMF protection for the devices we use all the time.
Thank you for considering my request and for all the time and effort you put into EMF education through your site, we definitely need more people like you.
Thanks for all your great work. After finding the legal info on SAR limits on the Apple Legal website, for my iphone 5
it states near the bottom of the info that “During testing, iPhone radios are set to their highest transmission levels”
but then they state below:
“…Cases with metal parts may change the RF performance of the device, including its compliance with RF exposure guidelines, in a manner that has not been tested or certified.”
Now arent all iphones in metal cases?! of course they may have meant any additional metal case around the device, but why wouldnt they say that clearer?
looks like a workaround in the testing may keep the testing radio outside the metal case!? therefore hiding the amplifying effects of their own device’s case!
…..its chilling to the bone nonetheless.

I hope you can answer my question. I am concerned about a cell tower (COW) that recently was erected on a back corner of parking lot at our church. It is in very close proximity to the preschool wing, playground (less than 100 feet). I have mentioned the “precautionary principle, and that our preschool kiddos may be a risk. No one is listening. How serious could this be? Would you (please, anyone enter your response) be happy if your child/grandchild attended this preschool?

To Judith Shamp,
In response to your question, yes, I would most definitely immediately take measures to remove my child or grandchild from a location within 100′ of a cell tower.
Because all children need such protection, however, it also seems fitting to pull together some research to show all the other mom’s and dad’s–as well as the church–so some children aren’t left behind to fry, while your grandchild gets protected.
On this site, if you do a search for “cell phone tower radiation” ten pages of hits will pull up. Should you desire even more such content, use the same search terms on Google. You could perhaps print out relevant articles. Or, if you and the other parents/grandparents use computers, you may find ways to email relevant links to those who are charged to care for the children, so they can become more informed.
Should you happen to attend that church, I’m sorry to say this, but I’d never go there again. There is no way the health costs are worth it. Surely a suitable church can be found which isn’t being directly radiated by a cell tower in its back yard.
A cell tower was placed next to our grandchild’s elementary school. The child developed childhood Lupus while still attending the school. The child’s genes may show an increased likely hood of developing Lupus but hundreds of other diseases could develop.

I am borrowing an accoustimetre to checkout my house. When I put it close to my corded laptop there are no wifi sounds but a very loud DECT (as described on your review of the kinds of sounds). Can you explain why the meter makes this sound by my computer?
