The Longterm Effects of ElectroMagnetic Radiation

Cell Phone Radiation Cartoon

We are bombarded by low levels of radiation from all directions. There are so many sources until reducing them would mean major changes in most of the things that we do daily, most without a second thought.

For example, did you know that the following give off radiation emissions? Hair dryers, cell phones, power lines, transformers, clock radios. We get it from watching TV and working in offices with fluorescent lights. Basically, we are radiated at home, work and most other places we go.

Electromagnetic radiation causes tissue damage by releasing electrons in the cells, called ionization. This is bad. Your body needs electrons to function properly. Possible damages from the low level radiation over time can cause digestive problems which can cause abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, it can alter and mutate DNA.

Possible Outcomes of Prolonged Exposure

  • Tumors
  • Irritable Bowel Disease
  • Damage to the intestinal mucus lining
  • Colon cancer in the more sensitive colons

Cellphones and Cellular Towers

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers in 1999 met with wireless industry representatives. Despite the fact that radiation from cellular devices is demonstrated to be dangerous, they unanimously decided to raise the radiation exposure limit, for better service was the reason. And they did this in spite of the danger to their customers, just to make money. They continue on their trajectory for profit, raising more and more towers, protecting only their interests.

Knowing that there is danger inherent in owning and operating cellular devices has not curbed the manufacture or selling strategies of cellular providers. This knowledge has not encouraged the government to stop cellular providers from raising the acceptable emissions allowances. This information hasn't even inspired a cellular provider to voluntarily include a frequency-absorbing chip to protect their customers.

Cellular Towers continue to be erected on office buildings' sides, and tops. Only monetary consideration between the buildings' owners and the cellular providers determines the feasibility. The towers harm people by emitting very high levels of the RF radiation sometimes exceeding the guidelines posted by the Federal Trade Commission. The harm is done to anyone in close proximity to the tower, certainly to the workers in the facility.

Because they know the dangers of owning and operating cellular devices, cellular providers have wrangled legislations that protect them from liability related to their products. Further, no insurance companies will pay for illnesses caused by prolonged use of cellular devices; this also protects the cellular providers. They were at one point even trying to make it necessary for customers to sign an agreement to not participate in suing them.

Toxic Radiation Generated at Home and Work

Cell Phone Radiation

Many of the electronic conveniences we use can be a danger to us, because of the low level electromagnetic fields (EMF) they generate.

To make matters worse, non-electronic products around the house, magnify the effects of the radiation. The wire in a bra for example can behave like an antenna. If the field created by electrical devices is strong enough, the metal frames and/or springs can be magnetized; this can disrupt your body's functions during sleep.

At work, there are similar dangers: radiation sources and radiation enhancers. Certain occupations present more of a risk than others. The workers listed below have the greatest radiation exposure daily:

This is exactly why we carry a number of radiation protection products. Keeping these in your living environment can help protect you from any harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation that you may get.

Office workers are not safe either. They have to contend with fluorescent lighting, computers and other electronic devices that people rarely, if ever, hesitate to use.

Occupations Typical Exposure (in milligauss)
Cable Splicers to 15 mG
Distribution Substation Operators to 34 mG
Electronics to 34 mG
Line Workers to 35 mG
Machinists to 28 mG
TV Repair Workers to 8 mG
Welders to 96 mG
