Reducing radiation children and mobile phones

Reducing radiation children and mobile phones.

If you do decide to your child a phone, then…

Do not give them on old one with a small aerial in the top – these concentrate the radiation emissions right by the skull.

I have gone for an HTC One smartphone as the one that doses me least with microwave radiation in daily use.

They are a top end smartphone but support internet pass through – i.e. the phone will connect to the internet via a USB cable to any PC with the HTC software on.  On Amazon they are priced from £115 upwards.

I don’t know of another manufacturer that supports this. All smartphones seem to need large downloads to support software updates which on other phones means lots of radiation from their data function.

At any time when near a PC with the HTC software connecting to the internet with a USB cable – it also charges the phone.

In use:

  1. switch off all the transmitters except 3G phone-and-text – that means 4G, bluetooth, wifi, position, nfc, and data. The battery life is at least doubled.
  2. temporarily switch on data only when needed. Get your child to learn how to use the usual apps – facebook etc. on their wired PC and with a wired connection to their phone at home..
  3. never put a microwave transmitter (cordless and mobiles) to your head, always carry it in a bag, never in a pocket
  4. always use an air tube headset (single ear – stereo ones are dangerous because you cannot hear what is going on around you and tangle a lot) and keep it plugged in so that you answer the phone by headset and hold the phone a good distance from the head when using it. Speaker-phone mode is not so good – it means transmitters closer to the head, are overheard and usually affected by background noise. Using the airtube headset – radiation to your brain is roughly 10,000 times less than compared to using the phone held to your ear.
  5. you can use screening phone holders but they do nothing to reduce radiation (any attempt to shield a phone means they ramp up their power).
  6. also blobs and buttons and stickers cannot counteract the powerful radiation ever, fully – if at all.
  7. at night switch off totally and charge at least 2m from the bed.
  8. consider getting your child to wear protective clothing for school. Looks ordinary but contains silver thread which reflects microwaves.

I tried to hardwire a new Samsung phone 18 months ago and it couldn’t! HTC do and it works well.

Also if you are going to give your child data access there are these parental control apps.

Radio Frequency radiation

Radio frequency radiation (RF radiation) and visible light are just two ranges of EMF on a broad spectrum of electromagnetic energy. The electromagnetic spectrum (EM spectrum) contains all known frequencies of EM radiation, from radio waves toward the lower frequency end, through the visible light spectrum, all the way up to gamma rays.

Radio frequency radiation is pretty low on the EM spectrum. Below it, we find extremely low frequency (ELF) radiation, such as what is emitted by the power lines and electrical circuits we use to supply electricity to our homes, then very low frequency (VLF) radiation such as computers/screens. Above radio frequency radiation, we find microwave radiation (MW radiation), which is what your microwave oven and mobile phone uses. Above MW is infrared (IR), such as that emitted by motion sensors or remote controls and then we have visible light.
Collectively ELF, VLF, RF and IR are known as non-ionizing radiation.

It is a long-held belief that the less energetic EM radiation in the lower end of the EM spectrum is less damaging than radio frequency radiation or MW, and x-rays are more damaging than ELF, VLF, RF and MW. This is why criteria for safety standards are different in each range of the EM spectrum.
However we know that even low-energy EMF can cause bodily damage.
A high-powered ELF field can deliver enough current to kill a person (such as a lightning strike or electric chair), while a person does not even feel a low-powered radio signal (such as a transmission from a baby monitor) that is composed of waves that can be a million times more energetic.

EMF Radiation

There is a large body of solid science showing that electromagnetic radiation (EMF Radiation – EMR) that is a by-product of our high-tech world has many varied effects on our biology. It is time we replaced the common refrain of “no solid evidence of danger” with “it’s time we acknowledge the dangers and do something about it”.

The steps necessary for change are many. Two of the most important are:

  1. Establish the criteria that will make the technology safer for users and for all in the surrounding environment. Fortunately, those criteria are not difficult to put in place, and there are multiple ways in which the amount of exposure can be reduced. What is required is the recognition that the change is needed and doable.
  2. Create an informed citizenry. When people are informed, they are empowered. We have seen over and over again what the population can achieve when it is mobilized to act. Corporate and government policy can change dramatically.

These goals are central to the ideas in this book (and our company Beneficial Environments). By knowing the facts you can make informed decisions about how to use technology, and you can become part of the process (solution) required to reduce the potential harm posed by EMF radiation.

Adapted from Overpowered – What science tells us about the dangers of cell phones and other WiFi-age devices – Martin Blank, PhD

Beneficial Environments has products which can reduce your exposure to EMF radiation. We also offer a comprehensive surveying service.

We conduct surveys in homes and offices, in areas used for sleeping, working and resting. We check the levels of EMF radiation and compare them with those recommended by the Institute of Building Biology, Stetzer Electric and others.

We also sell, earthing (grounding) sheets, sleeping (recovery) bags, airtube headsets and EMF absorbing wallpaper.

What makes our earth sheets special?

The formulation of the material is polycotton with stainless steel filaments closely woven in. The material is not only an excellent conductor, but also an effective shield for microwave radiation. Therefore our sheets can provide protection from microwave radiation, as well as all the benefits of earthing.

Near contact between your skin and the earthing sheets will reduce your body voltage to a few millivolts. The earthing contact works to reduce the body voltage through fabrics such as socks or cotton bedsheets. Your body voltage is reduced to the earth reference, meanwhile your electrical state restored to a balance. Your body is connected to the ground and the earth feeds an electron charge to your body.

Are the bedsheets safe and hygienic?

They can be washed just like any other polycotton sheet.

They protect you from any electrical wiring faults with a 100kOhm resistor which still allows earthing, but is high enough to stop any electrical shock possibility.

Any radiation coming from below whether from your own EMF sources such as WI-FI or cordless phones or other peoples’ equipment will be reflected away thus protecting the body. Body grounding sheets normally cover about a third of the bed as in the picture. This is sufficient for the majority of clients wanting to be earthed, if however you are being zapped from rising pulsed EMF fields from below then you might want a large one to cover the whole bed. These grounding / radiation protection sheets are a different composition than most others. They are based on complete, durable stainless steel conductive thread to cotton bond. They have many excellent characteristics: high electrical conductivity, reduction of static electricity and reflection of microwaves.

The smaller sheets have been found to work best if they are in contact with your feet and this is probably due to the acupuncture meridians.

Supplied with standard UK plug with the earth pin only connecting. The plug is therefore not connected to your mains power, only the earth, so your electric socket can remain either switched on or off as it makes no difference.

Airtube headsets are thought by many doctors and scientists to be safer because they reduce microwave and other EM fields exposure massively for the user of mobile phones.
Why are they different? The airtube is an empty tube that carries the sound from a little loudspeaker in the microphone dongle which is 270mm away from the user’s ear.
Airtube headsets have the advantage of massively reducing the radiation exposure experienced by the user from a mobile phone or cordless phone, particularly to the user’s head. This works in 2 ways – the Which Report measured increased radiation on ordinary wire headsets that picked up the mobile phone radiation – airtube headsets stop this happening and also do not have audio frequency magnetic fields from the ordinary earpiece near your ear nerve.

The EMF absorbing wallpaper is supplied in rolls of 10.05m by 53cms & put up like ordinary wallpaper with standard paste. It cuts like lining paper. and has good flexibility over imperfect plaster. It can be covered with ordinary wallpaper, is also paintable and compatible with aluminium foil-based materials. It is easy to install, whether in new fit or redecoration. It is a non-woven fabric and is uniquely highly absorbent – nearly all other materials reflect – absorption dampens down EMFs in a room. It has good shielding properties for electromagnetic fields and is strong and durable.

All our products stocked at Beneficial Environments have been tried and tested by our physicist Guy Hudson, who is electrosensitive.

Wifi Radiation Health Risks

The International Agency for Research on Cancer, part of the United Nations’ World Health Organization, has classified Radio Frequency Electro Magnetic Fields (RF/EMF) as Class 2b carcinogens – possibly carcinogenic to humans.

The main sources of RF/EMF are radios, televisions, microwave ovens, mobile/cell phones, and WiFi devices.

In this video Guy Hudson, physicist and electrosensitive discusses Wifi Radiation Health Risks

Wifi Radiation Health Risks

Microwave Radiation

Microwaves are a form of electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths ranging from one metre to one millimetre; with frequencies between 300 MHz (100 cm) and 300 GHz (0.1 cm).

Mobile/cell phones use electromagnetic radiation in the microwave range.

Other digital wireless systems, such as data communication networks (WiFi), produce similar microwave radiation.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer in 2011 classified mobile/cell phone microwave radiation as Group 2B – possibly carcinogenic.

What can you do to protect yourself from these possible carcinogens?

Use a wired (Ethernet) solution when connecting to your Wifi router at home (disable Wireless on the router or shield the router & remember to disable the WiFi mode on your laptop.

Switch of the WiFi router when asleep or not in use.

Use your mobile/cell phone at least 15mm (as per manufacturer’s recommendations) away from your body.

Use your mobile/cell phone on speaker mode or better still use an airtube headset (available here).

 

Radiation Free Headsets

Mobile phone and cordless phones radiate microwaves.  Holding these phones away from your head reduces the radiation absorbed by your brain by a significant factor.

It allows you to comply with the manufacturers’ safety guidance of never to use a mobile phone within 15mm (more than half an inch) from your skin.

You can use speaker mode – not private and picks up external noise.

Ordinary headsets supplied by the manufacturers radiate the brain because the wire acts as an aerial and the speaker puts potentially carcinogenic magnetic fields directly into your ear.

Radiation free headsets work differently:

Airtube headsets from beneficial environments

Airtube headset

White airtube headset

The dongle not only contains the on/off button but also the speaker.

An AIRTUBE – a soft, comfortable, hollow tube with only air in it – carries the sound up to the hollow earpiece.

Technically, an airtube headset is very simple and reliable and reduces the key sources of radiation by an enormous amount.

Please do have a look at this video where Guy Hudson shows you how to use a radiation free headset.

 

Wifi Health Risks Research

There is a growing number of scientists looking at Wifi Health Risks Research and the causes of Electromagnetic Sensitivity and Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity.

In the UK one of the best summaries of the ongoing research efforts is the work of Michael Bevington.

Over 1,800 research references are contained in Bevington’s 2013 book “Electromagnetic Sensitivity and Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity: A Summary

http://www.bioinitiative.org/research-summaries/

These are invaluable sets of abstracts (data-based to be searchable) covering the Radio Frequency Radiation scientific literature, as well as collections of scientific abstracts on free radical damage and a set specific to electrosensitivity.  They cover the research published between 1990-2014

The Wifi health risks research is at a point where the main stream media can no longer ignore their findings.

Electrosmog

Electrosmog

Electrosmog is the invisible electromagnetic radiation resulting from the use of both wireless technology and mains electricity.

The most common sources of wireless electrosmog are: WiFi, smartphones/mobile/cell-phones, phone masts/towers, cordless phones, laptops etc.

Radiation in Cell Phones

Radiation in Cell Phones

Mobile phones are microwave transmitters.

Modern day smartphones have about 5 transmitters which all emit radiation.

When not using certain functions of your cell phone e.g. Bluetooth, WiFi, Data (3G-4G), these can and should be disabled, and the phones should never be kept close to your skin (manufacturers recommend a minimum of 15mm).

The phone should be used on speaker or better still through the use of an airtube headset.
