Low EMF lighting

Low EMF lighting products are made in Germany, especially for the Building Biology movement. They are now available in the UK.

A low electrosmog lamp is styled and disguised as a normal lamp.

Low EMF lighting

Low EMF lighting

THE critical place for low electrosmog is where you sleep. Normal bedside lamps emit electric fields which mean that your sleeping place’s electormog can be way above building biology guidelines.

The cable is shielded, the lamp holder is metal and earthed and the bulb is also shielded. Bed side lamps are one of the commonest sources of low-frequency electric fields in peoples’ sleeping areas.

The lamp is made of beech wood, the surfaces treated with natural oil and wax (Auro 129). Wood is a natural product; each lathed work-piece differs in color and grain from the next.

This product is made of materials with minimum out-gassing so it’s suitable for people with multiple chemical sensitivity MCS or those who want to create a building biology clean air environment.

We have a range of low EMF lighting products in our shop suitable for living areas, kitchens etc.

A note on the price – these lamps are made in low volumes in Germany, especially for the Building Biology movement. The method of production and quality of materials means they are more expensive than ordinary lamps.
Manufactured in Germany. Supplied with a German plug, we will provide the necessary converter plug.

Excessive exposure to Electromagnetic Field sources causes pain

This is a significant publication.

From http://anhinternational.org – Excessive exposure to Electromagnetic Field sources causes pain:

A study has recently been published that provides the first evidence of a link between radio signals and nerve pain in people with amputated limbs. The senior author of the study, Dr Mario Romero-Ortega, said, “Our study provides evidence, for the first time, that subjects exposed to cellphone towers at low, regular levels can actually perceive pain”. The rats involved in the study received a nerve injury to simulate an amputation before being exposed to EMF signals equivalent to standing near a phone mast around 40 meters away for 10 minutes once a week for eight weeks. After just four weeks this short exposure time was enough to cause 88% of the rats to show a definite pain response to the signal. This study adds to the very real concerns associated with an excessive exposure to Electromagnetic Field sources, including electro-hypersensitivity, which has now been recognised as a functional disorder.

Study: Anthropogenic Radio-Frequency Electromagnetic Fields Elicit Neuropathic Pain in an Amputation Model

ABSTRACT

Anecdotal and clinical reports have suggested that radio-frequency electromagnetic fields (RF EMFs) may serve as a trigger for neuropathic pain. However, these reports have been widely disregarded, as the epidemiological effects of electromagnetic fields have not been systematically proven, and are highly controversial. Here, we demonstrate that anthropogenic RF EMFs elicit post-neurotomy pain in a tibial neuroma transposition model. Behavioral assays indicate a persistent and significant pain response to RF EMFs when compared to SHAM surgery groups. Laser thermometry revealed a transient skin temperature increase during stimulation. Furthermore, immunofluorescence revealed an increased expression of temperature sensitive cation channels (TRPV4) in the neuroma bulb, suggesting that RF EMF-induced pain may be due to cytokine-mediated channel dysregulation and hypersensitization, leading to thermal allodynia. Additional behavioral assays were performed using an infrared heating lamp in place of the RF stimulus. While thermally-induced pain responses were observed, the response frequency and progression did not recapitulate the RF EMF effects. In vitro calcium imaging experiments demonstrated that our RF EMF stimulus is sufficient to directly contribute to the depolarization of dissociated sensory neurons. Furthermore, the perfusion of inflammatory cytokine TNF-α resulted in a significantly higher percentage of active sensory neurons during RF EMF stimulation. These results substantiate patient reports of RF EMF-pain, in the case of peripheral nerve injury, while confirming the public and scientific consensus that anthropogenic RF EMFs engender no adverse sensory effects in the general population.

INTRODUCTION

Anthropogenic electromagnetic fields (EMFs) have become a ubiquitous presence in modern life. A broad spectral band of EMF frequencies (50 Hz–5 GHz) are now passing around us and through us, and are generated by sources ranging from electricity transport to mobile communication devices. While we have all undoubtedly benefited from the wide-ranging applications of commercial electronics, there is a growing social and scientific concern that persistent exposure to radio- and microwave-frequency (RF/MWF) EMFs may engender unforeseen adverse health effects in vulnerable subsets of our population.

Over the past thirty years, there have been numerous reports published on the epidemiological, animal, and cellular-level effects of RF EMF exposure [13], with the majority of these studies being conducted in vitro and focused on evaluating the potential relationship between cell phone usage and the incidence of certain types of cancer [46]. Many conclusions drawn from this field of study remain highly controversial [7,8], but sufficient evidence regarding EMF-tissue interactions has resulted in the adoption of national and international standards for health and occupational EMF exposure. More recently, there have also been anecdotal, case, and clinical reports that magnetic and electromagnetic fields of various frequencies may serve as a trigger for neuropathic and post-amputation pain [911].

EMF Protection

EMF Protection.

We live in a technological age:- laptops, smart phones (mobile/cell-phones), cordless phones, smart meters and Wi-Fi routers are everywhere; in our homes, offices and schools and they are used almost 24×7.

An accumulating body of research suggests that exposure to these EMF technologies could have long-term implications for our health.

A growing number of people are claiming to experience unpleasant and sometimes severe effects as a result of exposure to EMFs of various frequencies. This condition is referred to as electrical sensitivity or electromagnetic hypersensitivity.

To mitigate these health risks you need EMF protection.

If you’re concerned about the potential health effects of these fields or are electrically sensitive, Beneficial Environments has a range of solutions which may help to give you peace of mind.

We sell EMF absorbing wallpaper, clothing (hats, vests, shorts), earth (grounding) sheets and airtube headsets.

Health Effects of Electromagnetic Fields

Many scientists & physicians have expressed their concerns regarding the adverse health effects of electromagnetic fields.

“I believe that man-made EMFs, especially dirty electricity, are chronic stressors and are responsible for many of the disease patterns of electrified populations” – Samuel Milham MD, MPH – Medical epidemiologist in occupational epidemiology.

“Radio frequency radiation and other forms of electromagnetic pollution are harmful at orders of magnitude well below existing guidelines. Science is one of the tools society uses to decide health policy. In the case of telecommunications equipment, such as cell phones, wireless networks, cell phone antennas, PDAs, and portable phones, the science is being ignored. Current guidelines urgently need to be re-examined by government and reduced to reflect the state of the science. There is an emerging public health crisis at hand and time is of the essence.” – Magda Havas, PhD – Expert in radiofrequency radiation, electromagnetic fields, dirty electricity and ground current.

“Cells in the body react to EMFs as potentially harmful, just like to other environmental toxins, including heavy metals and toxic chemicals.  The DNA in living cells recognizes electromagnetic fields at very low levels of exposure; and produces a biochemical stress response.  The scientific evidence tells us that our safety standards are inadequate, and that we must protect ourselves from exposure to EMF due to power lines, cell phones and the like, or risk the known consequences. The science is very strong and we should sit up and pay attention.” – Martin Blank, PhD –  Researcher in Bioelectromagnetics; Author of the BioInitiative Report’s section on Stress Proteins.

EMF Filter

An EMF Filter is a well-tried and tested electrical engineering solution to problems of electromagnetic (EM) pollution. Each home, clinic or office takes between 3 and 15 filters to reduce the GS units of dirty electricity, ideally down to 30 for people who are electromagnetically sensitive (ES), or down to 50 for others.

To ensure that you get the best results with your filters, we recommend that you either buy a Stetzer Microsurge meter (or get a reduced-price one, with one of the filter packs shown below) or arrange for an EMF survey for installation of the filters. Measuring with a meter determines the optimum positions and quantity of filters to minimize the GS units of dirty electricity.

EMF Filter

EMF Filter

We recommend 3 filters and a meter at first, since using the meter you can find the best location for your filters in your home. Three filters are the minimum number that brings the GS units of dirty electricity down in most situations.
