EMFs and Health – What You Need To “Get”

I became wise about EMFs a good while back.

Long before cell phones became the all singing, all dancing appendage they are today.

Long before WiFi invaded our homes, offices, schools, public transport and shopping malls.

Long before wireless video games, burglar alarms, music systems became must have's in every home.

Getting Wise

I got wise when one day I put a cell phone to my ear and felt intense pain.

For others it was the day their utility company installed a wireless smart meter on their home.

Or it was the day a new cell tower mushroomed in their neighborhood.

From that day on they are at war. Their utility company/cell tower company is their arch-enemy. Petitions, sit-ins, court proceedings, they stop at nothing to get the offending item removed.

The fact is, it is totally unfair and unjust the way these companies can just barge into our lives and put our health at risk. These things do put our health at risk.

I know it.

BUT and here’s the big BUT, as much as I do sympathize when someone gets a smart meter or cell phone tower inflicted on them. What I also see is that they get so caught up in the injustice of the situation that they overlook the essential.

The Real Message

They just don’t get the EMF issue.

They just don’t get the all-encompassing, all-pervasive nature of it.

They think it’s just about the smart meter, cell tower or power-line or whatever other EMF hazard recently reared its ugly head into their life.

Take the smart meters for instance.

Most people only “get” that smart meter emits EMFs. They fail to realize that what’s just as bad if not worse, are the EMFs from all the smart appliances which are in their home, which communicate with the smart meter and thereby liberally radiating you and all the other occupants of your home in the process!

For other people, their enemy number one is the cell tower at the end of their street. I understand the outrage that people feel when a cell phone tower springs up outside their home radiating their home, garden and entire neighborhood and they are powerless to do anything about it. Or when they see new antennas being fitted to an existing cell tower.

But here’s the thing: these are all external sources of EMFs.

They are outside. The source is not inside your home.

No Small Detail

This is no small detail. Because ‘distance to the source’ is crucial. That’s to say how far away you are from the device (source) which is emitting EMFs is a key factor in determining your exposures.

It’s a key factor because of a rule of physics called the inverse square law. This says: the strength of an electromagnetic field is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the source.

In other words, if you move your bed twice as far away from your smart meter, you get one quarter the radio frequency radiation. Move it three times farther, you get one-ninth the RF exposure.

So yes, cell towers and smart meters and power lines and the like are a problem. But often, very often, people fight to have a smart meter or cell tower removed when their exposure to EMF sources in the home far exceeds what they are being exposed to from outside the home.

Rather than looking at their overall EMF exposures they are obsessing about one EMF issue. And it’s often the wrong one.

Are you one of these people?

The Facts

What’s important is to understand the facts.

As far as these external sources of EMFs are concerned the facts tend to get forgotten. They get drowned out by the, “what right have they”, the injustice of it all.

There is a right way and a wrong way to go about this.

And this is what I intend to do.

If you’re looking for something to buy which is magically going to make EMFs safe, you’ve come to the wrong place.

But I can show you the right way.

If you are interested in learning the facts you’ve come to the right place.

If you’re interested in solutions and learning how to deal with these EMF exposures you’ve also come to the right place.

    I happen to be an EMF sensitive individual, yet was not fully aware of the issue until a few years ago, when the cumulative damage of all these various exposures pushed me over the neurological edge. These last eight years of my life have been filled with constant- exhausting seizure activity, and my life has been reduced from a robust and functional individual, to basic raw survival as an unemployable EMF refugee.
    As you state in your blog, it isn’t just the “smart” technology that poses a threat to my health- it is the complete insanity of utilizing all these unnecessary technologies, and the abject stupidity of the consumers who purchases the equipment without researching the effects it may have on others. I am more than tired of incompetent slobs, forcing me to accept their ‘value’ system, or insinuating that I am only imagining my symptoms.
    To them I say: Try spending a few months having your body being wracked all over the place 24/7 and unable to escape the silent horror of your neighbors electronic toy garbage. Now smile and act as if everything is just fine. Now look forward to spending your remaining days, living on back roads and/or living on the front seat of your car, because you can’t stand being anywhere within broadcast distance of your own home. Then go screw yourselves, and blame it on the ‘government’ or some utility company. It is consumers who are making this world a nightmare to live in. Thank you for your fine efforts. You are all fools.

    Is any studies or education for people that are emf sensitive? I been study this issue for a while, since it affects me.

  • Lloyd said,

    Unfortunately most doctors are ignorant about electrical sensitivity. I wrote an article pulling together what the studies say and the anecdotal evidence here https://www.electricsense.com/4043/electrical-sensitivity-research-diagnosis-and-treatment/ – I will be publishing a book on “How to Beat Electrical Sensitivity” shortly.

    Dear Lloyd,
    Thank u very much for this interesting and enlightning article. We in India do not have smart meters as yet but what bothers me most is mushrooming of large number of Mobile towers all over the urban India. With Governement’s ditrective to reduce the radiation intensity from mobile towers by 1/8 th the problem will b emultiplied further because increase in large number of towers. Personally I do not get proper sleep ever since a mobile tower with 8 transmitters is erected near my house about 200 meters away. Any help, advise, tips?

  • Kathleen Egbert said,

    I read the report. I need explanation of the statistics. To me, the uneducated in reading technical documents like these, it looks like smart meters are virtually hazard free. Yet I know for personal experience that they cause profound detrimental effects. Help please!

  • Man Ino said,

    I have found that aluminum foil does indeed reduce radiation v/m from 0.80 or thereabouts to 0.07 v/m as measured with a cornet ed65 by my bedroom window. I would like to know if you have left a meter on all night long to measure MAX radiation and how much radiation would you sleep peaceful with (0.0061 as Building Biology Evaluation Guidelines seem to be out of reach for me for the time being, having a cell tower on top of building adjacent to mine. cheers and keep good work, your site rocks!

  • Lloyd said,

    Hi Man
    I can’t say I have tried what you suggested but I do sleep well – the RF radiation in my bedroom is below 0.02V/m (nearly quiet on audio mode) on my acoustimeter. If your meter is measuring 0.07V/m then this is “relatively” low especially given that you have a cell tower close by. Unless your symptoms are bad I would be satisfied with this.

    OK, let’s try this again. When I filled out the “website” field, the site would not allow me to comment.

    However, on another article on this site, the comment went through when I left the “website” field blank.

    There are two videos worth watching on YouTube.

    This video alerted me to the possibility that non-ionizing radiation is not the only immediate and serious threat to public health:

    Leuren Moret about Japan Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Truth 1/2

    The following video, I may have actually found through your site. It sums up better than most videos–so far—exactly why and how health is threatened by the explosion of non-ionizing radiation in our environments.

    Smart Meters & EMR: The Health Crisis Of Our Time – Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt

    Can’t thank you enough. My thoughts are along the lines of the first person to comment, Paul. There’s really no way to explain the insanity, once you really understand how much research there is that shows this is harmful technology.

    One of the hardest parts is not being believed. A good book to read—if you can get hold of it—is by Chellis Glendinning, published 1990, called “When Technology Wounds.”

    Hi Lloyd,

    I am eagerly awaiting delivery of an ED75 Cornet meter, so that I can start changing my surroundings. Whilst waiting I started to ponder the whole question of EMF, RF, dirty electricity etc. It worries me that we as individuals can so easily find all this information and try to halt the flow as it were. But the authorities have been unable or not willing to look at the dangers, before cell phones were introduced. We (the public) have known about such things as Radar etc. since the last war. Sailors in metal ships surrounded by Radar and radio equipment must have been tested and researched. So this can only mean that the authorities knew the risks and whitewashed the whole thing in favour of BIG money. It would take a lot of pressure to bring about any change in the safety rules, when we have made our dependancy on hitech our own grim reaper.
