EMF related health problems and illnesses

EUROPAEM EMF Guideline 2016 for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of EMF related health problems and illnesses

We are often asked why we say that reducing exposure to sources of RF and EMFs is important, especially as industry and governments say that they are safe.

We attach here evidence for restrictive guidelines written by international experts in the field of EMF research, to add to what we already have seen in the BioInitiative report.

The following is taken from the peer-reviewed and fully published paper (attached):-

EUROPAEM EMF Guideline 2016 for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of EMF-related health problems and illnesses

Common EMF sources include Wi-Fi access points, routers and clients, cordless and mobile phones including their base stations, Bluetooth devices, ELF magnetic fields from net currents, ELF electric fields from electric lamps and wiring close to the bed and office desk. There is strong evidence that long term exposure to certain EMF exposures is a risk factor for diseases such as certain cancers, Alzheimer’s disease and male infertility. Also electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) is more and more recognized by health authorities, disability administrators and case workers, politicians, as well as courts of law.

The primary method of treatment should mainly focus on the prevention or reduction of EMF exposure, that is, reducing or eliminating all sources of EMF at home and in the workplace. The reduction of EMF exposure should also be extended to public spaces such as schools, hospitals, public transport, and libraries to enable people with EHS to have access without discrimination.

Also the survival rate of children and adults with immune system disorders, and cancer depends on low ELF magnetic field exposure at home. Children with EMF exposure at home and at school have learning and behavioural problems.

Acousticom 2 High Frequency Meter

In this video Guy Hudson talks about the Acousticom 2 High Frequency Meter.

Why Buy?

This meter is a core part of equipment for anyone interested in Electrosensitivity and low electrosmog environments. It allows people to investigate the levels and sources of electrosmog in the most simple way and direct way. For what it does it is very good value for money. Not the quite cheapest meter on the market but the best for the money.

Technical Description from the Manufacturer

The Acousticom 2 is our newest microwave detector. It presents RF measurements as an audio signal, with LEDs and an alarm at high levels of RF (you can also switch the sound off if you prefer to be less obvious when taking readings). With simple controls, easy to read results, but still using the same advanced microwave detector as our Acoustimeter, this instrument is perfect for those on a budget. It is smaller and lighter than the Acoustimeter, and comes in its own carry pouch.

The Acousticom 2 was designed using the experience gained from many years of practical RF and microwave measurements. The advanced RF detector is the same as that used in the Acoustimeter. LED lights display the peak levels of microwave electromagnetic fields from 200 MHz up to over 8000 MHz (8 GHz), covering the frequencies used by most modern communication systems encountered in our everyday environment. This includes TETRA, all mobile phone systems including 4G/LTE, Smart Meters, and all WiFi and WiMax frequencies. The LEDs update rapidly, and allow you to quickly gauge the levels in an area and find any hot-spots. Its readout is sensitive to 0.01 V/m. When two LEDs are both lit next to each other, the exposure level is halfway between the two. This is only for levels above 0.1 V/m, e.g. when both 0.10 and 0.30 V/m are lit, the level is about 0.20 V/m (halfway between).

Dr Mercola and Electrosmog

Preaching to the unconverted?

My blogs are mainly read by those who understand about the effects of everyday electromagnetic fields. So the point is how to convince those who are or will be affected by use of technology.

Mercola is probably the leading internet doctor and is very convincing. He is very well qualified.

So I recommend you to share this blog and video to all your friends, family and work colleagues that would benefit.

Dr Mercola and Electrosmog.

Great Video to convert all those who aren’t convinced about problems with health and electromagnetic radiation.

However!! I think his way of showing that radiation strength goes down with distance (“Distance is your friend”) is impractical. He uses a selfie stick and speaker mode can only be used in private.

A much better solution are airtube headsets which keep the radiation away from your head and can be used in almost any situation like a normal earpiece headset.

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].
