Observations from a meeting I attended concerning Electronic Hypersensitivity Effects on Humans from WiFi (RF) Transmissions in the Home or Office. 14-11-2015.
I have written this article mid-month instead of waiting until the onset of December which we all know as the month of buying and receiving gifts because this article may influence how you, the reader does this.
I write this because I attended an important talk last weekend which highlighted the sheer scale of radio emitting devices which now exist in many homes and these emit concerning levels of microwave frequencies into your living spaces.
Radio Frequency emissions (RF) do not travel in a line from a transmitting device to the receiving device, they radiate in all directions and so will inevitably contact human and other living bodies within the radio range of their design. As we all know now any street in the UK is also a veritable bath of emitted radio signals from all of the communication devices in buildings and carried by millions of us on our person every day.
So whats all the Noise about?
As I understand it, ‘the noise’ is about the large gap between the official safe limit for human exposure to microwave energy emissions and the one measured by medical professionals and the insurance industry’s own risk assessments. Outdated standards of safety that are still in use, state that harm is not caused unless heating of the body happens as a result of exposure to RF emissions, and these standards were written before our current knowledge of the harmful effects on human living tissue and its cellular structures were as well known as they are today.
Manufacturers of the devices emitting microwave signals will put disclaimers with the devices they sell in very small print in its box, knowing that no one reads the small print as they rush to use the new device.
Insurers avoid litigation by excluding any harm caused from devices from insurances, so they do know and yet the sales of these devices romps on regardless. User beware!
Devices we Use
Baby Alarms and Monitors, Door Bells, Blue Tooth headsets, Wireless Mice & Keyboards, Wireless Thermostats, Bluetooth in Cars, Utilities installed Smart Meters (Electric, Gas and Water), Laptops, Smart Phones and Tablets and the list grows constantly.
Why the Concerns?
“The World Health Orgnaisation (WHO) / International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) Classified RF as a Group 2 B ‘Possible Human Carcinogen” (2011). Despite this, there has been no attempt in the UK at disseminating this important information to the public”.
I will not try to explain why medical professionals and scientists are alarmed at the rapidly increasing harmful effects being reported by doctors, but I do understand that because we human beings are bio organisms that are little different from other aninal species, we in common with them have never evolved to live in a smog of electromagnetic microwave emissions.
It seems inevitable to me that at least some sensitive groups will be affected by microwave RF especially when exposed on a constant basis, and that some will be more seriously affected than others. Naturally the weaker are more vulnerable, the young especially because microwave signals penetrate their thin skulls more easily than adults thicker skulls if using devices against the head such as phones and bluetooth headsets..
The full detailed document giving details of medical and other studies is here. Its a long and detailed read but because safety controls are behind the wide scale deployment of devices inside our homes it is worth at least a quick scan over.
You can try avoiding having too much in your living space where remember, you are the ones in charge as an important first step.
Naturally some RF will enter your living spaces from nearby buildings and cellphone towers but those generally won’t be as energy intense because of increased distance.
Refuse Smart Meter installations, you have the right to do this! From recorded data it has been found that these meters emit RF energy in very high powered bursts that are much higher energy than any device in your home.
They have to get their signal out beyond your home to receiving stations and so the energy bursts they emit will be designed to get there through any walls or people in the way. And yes, they emit radially in all directions! They have been identified as fire hazards in homes in the USA by many fire departments so insurance cover may be hard to get.
Use wired device connections where ever possible instead of WiFi, this can be achieved by using wires directly to the device from the router, or you could use your homes/offices power ring main to carry the signal using Powerline plugs which are not expensive. Once those are in place the routers and the devices WiFi can be disabled.
Usage Habit changes – Try keeping any active WiFi enabled devices you retain in use switched off (or in airplane mode) or well away from sleeping inhabitants or close to where people or pets spend long periods resting such as lounges or beds. The greater the distance between peoples bodies and RF devices, the better.
Disable the 3G or 4G when not in use as well as the WiFi, those G’s are very powerful and only are used when you are emailing or browsing the web. You can buy wired headsets which allow you to use the phone with it away from your body, so reducing your exposure to the highest energy density levels when in use.
Tablets were mentioned as always using maximum power transmissions (unlike smart phones) so can be more harmful.
