‘There tends to be some degree of misinformation as a consequence of the efforts of well meaning people to tackle this very complex topic. It has so many parts that need to be understood. It is very easy to oversimplify the concepts to try to find solutions.
Unfortunately what happens is that in the efforts to focus on an important issue, like smart meters, over generalizations are made without a full understanding of the technologies and the possible variations in signal strength from one manufacturer to another. In the panic that ensues, people become concerned in some cases about things they really shouldn’t be so concerned about, while they are unaware of the harm that is right in front of them from other types of EMFs they don’t know about because hardly anyone is talking about them.
I have an extensive amount of practical experience working with several thousand clients over the years as a building biologist, upwards of 60-70% of whom are electrically hyper sensitive (EHS). I know how to work with them and their non-sensitive family members to find common solutions that work and keep everyone happy, which is always a challenge.
I have a good understanding of how the information that people read on the Web dovetails with the reality of actual EMF levels and possible health effects in their home. There are a lot of misunderstandings out there, as you know, and I spend half my time and energy clearing them up for my clients and putting their actual situation into perspective. I show them what they really don’t have to worry about, and I show them what is present that they did not know about and need to address,
I am keenly aware of the importance of the other types of EMFs that most people in the EMF safety community who only know what they read on the Web (dirty electricity, grounding mats, chips and pendants, and smart meters) completely ignore because no one talks about them. The latter are what I call the “unknown EMF” because no one knows they exist, and their Tri-Field meter always shows they are not present because the levels that we need to get down too at night where we sleep, which are 1.5 V/m or below, are so hard to detect between the 0 and 1 on the top scale.
Regarding electric fields and the whole topic of what electric fields do to people when they sleep at night, or more importantly, what they don’t allow the physiology to do…….get deep Stage Four recuperative sleep with each sleep cycle every 90 minutes and the release of melatonin by the pineal gland in the middle of the night.
My colleagues and I have found that for many people with whom we work as clients have a profound sensitivity to radio frequency radiation or dirty electricity, which is what they focus on. [But] they also have not just the standard…..EMFs that every house has, but one or more serious levels of [other] EMFs.
These include wiring errors that produce very high magnetic fields at 60 Hz or they sleep and stand right over the path of a water service supply pipe or grounding conductor with what Spark Burmaster calls, “pipe current” on it, causing high magnetic fields. Or they have ungrounded outlets and use a “cheater plug” to plug a three-pronged, grounded computer plug into an ungrounded two-pronged outlet. Then when they put their hands on their laptop, they have huge electric fields and don’t understand why they feel tired after working on their computer after an hour or less but need to work on it for hours more.
Chronic, long term exposure to all these EMFs taken together in a home all adds up.
There is also the example of the guy who regularly has a booth at a local health conference here in LA who shows people that his chips reduce EMFs on cell phones. He uses a cell sensor, but he uses the plug-in cord that puts the meter into the mode where he is only measuring magnetic fields, not RF.
People buy the chip thinking they are fully protected from “EMFs,” but they are not.
[There are] signs that these chips and pendants do some good. But we don’t recommend them as the sole or exclusive means of protecting yourself.
I have a protocol to help people to choose hardwired alternatives in their home and still stay connected and have some degree of portability. How far they go with that all depends upon where they are on the spectrum of sensitivity and symptomatology.’
These are the musings of my next interview guest, building biologist Oram Miller.
Interview – Oram miller
Thursday, 20th February at 12 noon EST (9 AM PST or 5 PM GMT) I’m interviewing Oram Miller, BBEC, EMRS.
Oram Miller, is a Certified Building Biology Environmental Consultant and Electromagnetic Radiation Specialist based in Los Angeles. He received his certifications from the Building Biology Institute in Santa Fe, New Mexico (buildingbiologyinstitute.org).
Oram provides on-site and long-distance healthy home and office EMF evaluations for clients throughout Southern California and the world who have electromagnetic sensitivities, as well as those who want a healthier home or office. This includes real estate transactions, where he is part of the inspection team for clients interested in knowing EMF levels prior to purchase.
Oram also consults on the healthy design and construction of new and remodeled homes. He writes extensively on the health hazards of EMFs on his website, createhealthyhomes.com, and provides healthy home lectures.
Oram serves the Building Biology Institute (BBI) as Adjunct Faculty and Lab Leader Supervisor for the Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) seminars. He participates in curriculum development for the EMR seminars. He founded and oversees an Apprenticeship Program for EMR students within the profession. He also serves on several committees for the Institute.
Listen to my interview with Oram Miller and learn:
- how a new, 3rd generation of Wi-Fi is going to be using very high ‘5G frequencies'
- a free resource that Oram has created which has links to the coverage maps for the top four cellular carriers in the United States
- how there is more to 5G than the MMW that everyone focuses on
- the levels of exposure that are considered ‘safe' or of no concern for RFs (exposure from cell phones, WiFi etc.)
- a free resource that enables you to simply and easily convert between all the different confusing limits for RF exposure
- the particular sound that a 4G cell tower emits that can be easily identified with a good EMF meter and a free on-line resource that enables you to compare different RFs from cell towers, radar etc.
- how data (according to inside sources) is being constantly harvested from your phone
- the 4 main cell phone carriers in the US and the new frequencies they are adopting for 5G
- the one question you need to ask if you want to best measure and protect yourself from 5G
- the best way to protect yourself from 5G in your home (and notably the beam formed signal that appears to be the most harmful)
- the 2 materials Oram commonly uses and recommends to shield a room
- 3 ways to shield your windows when shielding and how to best choose your window film
- Oram's top tips for people who are symptomatic round EMFs
