I’m the young and open-minded individual to dangers of being continuously exposed to various types of electromagnetic field (EMF) sources. Since there aren’t many serious studies being done in Croatia (where I currently live) on this issue, and I’m having a hard time explaining my parents about the dangers of constant exposure to those fields coming from our and neighbour’s wireless devices, because I live in the block of flats (apartment), even after graduating from my colledge about two years ago, I still don’t have a job, I’m looking forward to move to some of the neighbouring countries, like Slovenia, Hungary or Italy in the hope of finding the accomodation free from any EM-field pollution, as well as a proper job to start with. There has been ever increasing number of newly erected cellphone towers in Zagreb (my home town), which the telecom companies are allowed to put anywhere and whenever they choose to do so, because of the obviously corrupt and outdated policies in our country, that many people from independent local organizations have tried to intervene with, but without success.
I would be very pleased to know from some of you guys whether such an option in the mentioned neigbouring countries exists, because I’m being very concerned with the current situation in Croatia, because I hardly afforded myself the Acousticom RF meter, which I wasn’t expecting to flash between 0.1 to 0.3 V/m peak signal strength (in my room where I spend most of my time). Also I don’t sleep very well, because my bed can’t be moved away from the wall with electrical outlet.

Hello Viks1928, and welcome to the forum. Your request is a challenge in any country. Personally I have no knowledge of the situation in any of the countries you mention. Here in Spain I have found one or two ‘safe’ areas, but they are in the country, a long way from the nearest town, where finding accommodation or work would be very difficult. Do let us know if you find somewhere.
Regarding your bed, it may not be possible to move it, but do you sleep with your head away from the wall, or as far as possible from the outlet? It might help as it increases the distance between the electrical outlet and the brain.

Hello Peter, and sorry for the late reply, been busy in the meantime. Yes it appears to be quite a challenge, but one has to be strong enough to make a difference on time…..Regarding my bed, it’s placed with its longer side right against the wall, and my head is being positioned about half a meter from the outlet, haven’t tried the other bed side, guess I should. I know what you’re trying to tell me, but I still can’t afford myself an ELF meter, like the PF meter form EMFields that I aim to when I can. By the way I have my working desk with a desktop computer being placed on the footside of my bed, so I should then shift it on the other side because of electric fields?

By the way, regarding the exposure to low frequency EM fields from power cables from my desktop computer and monitor, they are plugged on the power strip with a switch that I always flip before the bed time.
And yes, regarding the high frequency issue, what I didn’t mention in the first post are the cell masts located line of sight about 20 m away on the roof of the neighbouring building, and these are obviously overwhelming the readings on my Acousticom 2 RF detector with a dominant high pitched sound.
