“Radiation is no longer merely the bombardment of cosmic rays, the ultraviolet of the sun that have existed before there was any life on earth; radiation is now the unnatural creation of man’s tampering of the atom…they are the synthetic creations of man’s inventive mind, brewed in his laboratories, and having no counterparts in nature.”
— Rachel Carson from ‘Silent Spring’
What are electromagnetic fields?
EMFs are the emission and transmission of energy in the form of waves through space or a material, a combination of invisible electric and magnetic fields of force. In fact, we are all electric, evolving from a natural electrical environment. The earth itself is a giant dipole magnet with poles north and south. These magnetic fields play an important role in nature, dictating migration patterns of animals as well as determining our own circadian rhythms, among many other things. EMFs are generated by natural phenomena like the earth’s magnetic field, but also from man-made sources and human activities, mainly through the use of electricity. EMFs are here in our world 24/7.
One of the worst culprits of EMF emissions is your cell phone.
All cell phones in “on” mode emit non-ionizing microwave or radio frequency radiation, even when not in use. Thousands of peer reviewed studies from around the world have shown that EMFs can be absorbed in all living organisms and that these can have biological impacts on humans, animals and insects, even plants and bacteria. Our cell phones have the most impact on us as they are so close to us, and they are always on.
“Recent studies reveal that most cell phones exceeded FCC wireless radiation emission ‘guidelines’ by up to 1000% when held against the body.”
— Americans for Responsible Technology
Do it with wires
We cannot protect you from all the electromagnetic radiation pollution that surrounds us as EMFs are constantly being emitted from many other devices, such as microwaves, computers, cordless phones, wi-fi routers, smart meters and smart appliances, anything Bluetooth or wireless. The EMFs emitted from all these machines can also have a biological effect on us. Managing how long they are on for and keeping your body at a distance from them is key. Our aim is to bring awareness to this environmental pollutant so we can live with our technology in a healthier way. Making a wireless device wired is always the safest solution.
