WiFi Refugees

Wi-Fi Refugees. Electrosensitive people try to escape wireless technology.

This film about people in the US with electrosensitivity and how it affects their lives. It is a good introduction for those who have not yet understood or seen the severe human cost of the problem to those affected by electrosmog and treats the electrosensitivity sufferers with respect and dignity.

However, the solutions shown in this film are not anywhere near as effective as used by others. This means that individuals with Electrosensitivity can have more expectation that they will get better as there are more and more documented cases of people getting their lives back together and better techniques for electromog reduction and also improved modalities for improving the body’s response to the pollution.

Consultancies like Beneficial Environments to create low electrosmog environments to allow electrosensitive clients to live in cities and countryside with minimum inconvenience and so that their most important environments, where they spend significant times are well below their sensitivity trigger levels and so that they can heal and reduce their symptoms and get a fuller life back. Guy Hudson the CEO of Beneficial Environments has reduced his sensitivity and now leads a very full life helping others.

Just one example from the film: shielding a room right round with reflective shielding causes mutliple internal reflections which affect electrosensitive people, also connecting the shielding and earthing it in a band around the room cause an induction loop for mains frequencies. So with a bit of extra knowledge people’s electrosmog levels may be reduced greatly. (The solution in this case:- use non-reflecting shielding and design out induction loops)

How to block WiFi

How to block WiFi easily without any technical know-how.

With many internet routers it is difficult to switch off the Wi-Fi  with certainty.

Beneficial Environments has a simple and practical solution.

We have a wi-fi router shield made from Staticot, a cotton & polyester blend with 30% fine stainless steel filament.

The bag’s fabric allows cooling of the electronics and a draw-tight seal around the cabling to stop microwave leakage.

Easy to wash & durable.

Its ample size – 15″ x 15″ / 380mm x 380mm – fits most routers.

Simply open the bag by loosening the draw string. Insert router.

Carefully pull the cords and tie a knot.

Make sure the Ethernet and power cables are not tangled and tension free.

You can order one here.

Why WiFi should be minimised in schools

Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe, MD explains why WiFi should be minimised in schools.

An increasing number of concerned parents and sometimes staff from schools are contacting Beneficial Environments for advice on mitigating the health risks of WiFi, and asking for a survey to be conducted at their schools.

If you are a concerned parent we suggest you contact your school head, and if necessary, lobby with other parents for a electromagnetic survey to be carried out.

Get Wired 2015 – Dr Elizabeth Evans – Safe Wireless

This video is from the Get Wired 2015 conference and features Dr Elizabeth Evans – Safe Wireless & The Precautionary Principle.

The GetWired 2015 conference was sponsored by Beneficial Environments and was a response to concerns about the proliferation of wifi and mobile phone technologies.

The conference objective was to find and promote solutions to the problems arising both in terms of how to protect and shield vulnerable groups such as children and the aged but also how to encourage new safer products to be made available.   In contrast to many conferences focusing on the health effects, we have looked at solutions to the problem of widespread electrosensitivity and increasing electromagnetic pollution.

Get Wired 2015 – Dr Elizabeth Evans – Safe Wireless & The Precautionary Principle

 

Dr Elizabeth Evans trained as a emedical doctor at Cambridge University and Imperial College, London.  She now practices as a NAET Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique) Practitioner, treating patients with many conditions including EHS.

Dr Evans is the Medical Adviser to SSITA (Safe Schools Information Technology Alliance), who work to raise awareness of the health issues from WiFi and other wireless technologies in schools, nurseries and colleges.  Through SSITA she is in daily contact with scientists and campaigners who are active in this field, as well as parents of children who have been adversely affected by WiFi in their schools.

She is also a member of PHIRE (Physicians’ Health Initiative for Radiation and Environment).  Dr Evans has lectured many times on this subject, including at the Get Wired conference in 2013.

In 2012 Dr Evans co-founded Stop Smart Meters (UK) and appeared before the Energy and Climate Change Select Committee overseeing the UK smart meter roll-out in April 2013, on behalf of Stop Smart Meters (UK), to give evidence on the health risks from wireless radiation.

Reduce children’s exposure to wireless

“Reduce children’s exposure to wireless” states the The Cyprus Government’s Cyprus National Committee on Environment and Children’s Health.

Some government’s around the world are waking up and taking preventative action faster than others.

At Beneficial Environments we recommend adopting the Precautionary Principle and taking action yourself now to protect against the dangers of EMFs.

We provide solutions to reduce your everyday exposure to electromagnetic pollution.

We also perform comprehensive electromagnetic surveys at your home, work or clinic.

TEDx Talk: Wireless

Jeromy Johnson is Electro Hyper-sensitive (EHS).

He used to work in Silicon Valley in the United States and become very ill when Smart Meters were introduced where he lived. He then became sensitive to other sources of EMFs.

In February 2016 Jeromy gave this excellent presentation at at TEDx talk in Berkeley, California.

The solutions he puts forward are in line with what we recommend at Beneficial Environments.

Are cell phones and wifi signals toxic?

Are cell phones and wifi signals toxic? This question was posed by celebrity A-lister Gwyneth Paltrow on her website Goop.

It’s almost impossible to remember a time without smartphones, which makes it equally easy to forget that the technology is still relatively new, with safety requirements that, for the most part, are generally untested. The scientific community’s rumblings about brain cancer and the new-to-us affliction “electro-sensitivity” are worth exploring, at the very least, so we tapped three experts in the field—Dr. David Carpenter, Ann Louise Gittleman, and Devra Davis—to help us understand the complicated and messy world of cell phone and WiFi safety.

Gwyneth Paltrow: Are cell phones and wifi signals toxic

As predicted by Professor Victor Newman here – fashion and celebrities will play their part as the world adjusts to the new reality of lost electro-innocence.  We saw another celebrity last year, Noel Edmonds making the headlines with his views on Electrosmog.

The answer to Gwyneth Paltrow’s question is almost certainly yes as more and more research is showing this to be the case.

At Beneficial Environments we have solutions to reduce this exposure to electromagnetic pollution we can also perform an electromagnetic survey of your home, office or clinic.

WiFi in Schools

This is a tragic story – a 15 year old girl in the UK committed suicide, possibly as a plea for help, after suffering from electrohypersensitivity (EHS) because of Wifi in schools. Click here for the full article in the Daily Telgraph

A mother claims a Wi-Fi allergy killed her daughter and is accusing an Oxfordshire school of failing to safeguard children against the physical effects of wireless technology, an inquest has heard.

Jenny Fry, 15, was found in woodland near her home in Chadlington, on June 11 this year after texting a friend telling her she would not be going to school and intended to kill herself.

An inquest heard the teenager was intelligent and organised but that her life had been made a misery due to the prolonged effects of a condition known as electro-hypersensitivity (EHS) .

It is also tragic because there are alternative solutions to having WiFi in schools.

Building Biologists have developed standards which minimize or prevent exposure to harmful EMFs.

These are standards Beneficial Environments endorse.

Jenny Fry didn’t appear to have the support of her GP in recognizing her condition, but some doctors such as Dr. Elizabeth Evans, in the UK do recognize the condition of EHS.

More information on WiFi in schools and GPs can be found at SSITA and an open letter from 15 UK GP’s expressing concern over the health effects of Wi-Fi

The World Health Organisation has classed WiFi (2b) as a possible human carcinogen.

Wifi Health Problems

In this video Guy Hudson, physicist and electrosensitive talks about WiFi health problems.

The World Health Organization, International Agency for Research on Cancer, has classified radio frequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans (group 2B).

WiFi in the home, office and schools poses health problems.

Doctors and scientists around the world have warned against unnecessary exposure of children to RF/microwave from wireless technology and recommend using a safer wired internet connection (remembering to enable airplane mode on your laptop).
