Silver Threaded EMF Blocking Caps Improve Autoimmune Disease

Silver Threaded EMF Blocking Caps Improve Autoimmune Disease.

Research reveals that blocking exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) produces significant symptom changes in 90% of patients with autoimmune disease. No longer can it be ignored that man-made electromagnetic radiation poses innumerable risks to human health.

In a recent case series, patients wore shielding clothing and tenting consisting of silver-coated polyester threads interspersed with bamboo fibers that were partially capable of blocking penetration of microwave electrosmog. Due to anecdotal testimonies of improvement, researchers decided to distribute standardized garments that would shield the brain and brain stem in order to systematically analyze the results.

In this study, 64 patients with assorted autoimmune diagnoses such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), multiple sclerosis (MS), Sjogren’s syndrome, and celiac disease, many of whom were disabled and house-bound, were recruited. Subjects wore the silver-threaded cap for four hours at night and for four hours during the day, and patient-reported outcomes were collected. Impressively, 90% of patients indicated a “definite” or “strong” change in their symptomatology, which is at variance with the 3% of the population that is estimated to be sensitive to electrosmog.

Some researchers have attributed this so-called electro-hypersensitivity (EHS) or idiopathic environmental intolerance (IEI) to the nocebo effect. However, Dieudonné explores the possibility of a psychosomatic mechanism in the journal Bioelectromagnetics, and concludes, “Overall, symptoms appear before subjects start questioning effects of EMF on their health, which is not consistent with the hypothesis that IEI-EMF originates from nocebo responses to perceived EMF”.

In this groundbreaking study, it is also telling that the researchers found the therapeutic efficacy of the silver-coated caps to be so theoretically plausible that they decided the idea of using a control group was unethical. These authors concluded that autoimmune patients exhibit a pronounced susceptibility to electrosmog at levels normally encountered in home and occupational environments, and hypothesized that the exposure may be contributing to their disease etiology.

Top cancer expert says wifi is as dangerous as tobacco and asbestos

In this Daily Mail article top cancer expert Professor Anthony Miller says wifi is as dangerous as tobacco and asbestos

Prof Anthony Miller of Toronto University couldn’t be blunter, saying: ‘[Wifi] should not be allowed in schools.’

Professor Miller – who was Director of Canada’s National Cancer Institute’s Epidemiology Unit, and has held top posts in the World Health Organisation and the German Cancer Research Centre – is not alone in his fears.

He is the latest in a long line of top scientists to warn that the invisible waves of electromagnetic radiation that now constantly wash over us all – dubbed ‘electrosmog’ even by some academics – may cause a future cancer epidemic, and that it’s children who are most at risk.

Some concerned nations have already begun banning or restricting wifi, as well as mobile phones – another source of electrosmog – in schools.


France has banned wifi from nursery schools (the younger the child, the greater the danger), and restricted its use in teaching children up to the age of 11.

It has also banned mobile phones from all schools, partly because they are socially disruptive. But the country’s official Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety has recommended that tablets and other wifi devices should be regulated as phones are.

Cyprus has also banned wifi from kindergartens, and only permits it in the staff offices of junior schools for administration purposes. Israel also prohibits it in pre-schools and kindergartens, and allows it only to be gradually introduced in class as children get older. The Israeli city of Haifa has hardwired its school system so children can used computers that don’t need wifi to connect to the internet.

Frankfurt, meanwhile, hardwired 80 per cent of all its schools more than a decade ago, while the school authorities in Salzburg, Austria, wrote to headteachers officially advising them not to use wifi as long ago as 2005.

Ghent in Belgium has banned wifi in pre-schools and daycare centres, while individual local authorities in Spain and Italy have removed it from all their schools. Even faraway French Polynesia has prohibited it in nursery schools and limits it in primary ones. And so the list goes on.

Here in Britain, by contrast, there is only complacency and inaction – despite authoritative early warnings of trouble ahead.

Until Public Health England (formerly PHA) follow suit, the recommendation from us at Beneficial Environments is to try and reduce your everyday exposure to electosmog, by taking these sensible precautions:

  • Use a wired Internet solution during the day where possible, to connect to your devices and either disable Wifi at the router itself or use a shielded router bag
  • Use an airtube head set, or better still use one with an EMF filter (See our latest product Oktapus)
  • Disable data (3G/4G), bluetooth and wifi on your phone when it is not being used
  • Switch off your wifi router at night
  • Switch mobile phones off or to flight mode at night
  • Charge devices away from your body and your bed

 

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 Radiation” Cordless DECT Phones – How to stop them radiating has changed

“Low Radiation” Cordless DECT Phones – How to stop them radiating has changed, radically.
Summary:
1) tick “no radiation” ECO setting
2) take all the handsets out of their charging cradles, switch them off, and do not replace them in the cradles.
3) if all of the above is not done – the transmitter will radiate
4) if a call comes in, switch a handset on and the system will reconnect the transmitter
Radiation from cordless phones is a major contributor to electrosmog levels*. To have the transmitter base on 24/7 (the default – cost £25/$30 a year)
One manufacturer, GIGASET  alone has a “no radiation” setting – here is how you make that work. (It has changed – radically and if you haven’t checked with a meter, you may be in for a surpise. It does not operate how you might expect it to.
We have been recommending Siemens Cordless phones for those customers who cannot be without Cordless phones but want low radiation when not using them. The way to cut the radiation from the system them has changed.
Siemens have sold their Cordless phone division. The phones are now called GIGASET instead of Siemans GIGASET.
The GIGASET phones’ low radiation function works radically differently for all their DECT phones**.
Detail Instructions
1 Set up
a) As per normal – connect the base to the landline, and connect the charger
b) position handsets around your house in their charging cradles and switch on with the green button
c) on any handset go into settings/Eco and select “No radiation” and make sure it is ticked.
2) Operation
When you want no radiation especially at night –
a) remove each and all of handsets from each of the cradles
b) switch each of them off with the red button. (Beware if you replace any the handsets in any cradle they switch on and activate the base transmitter again)
c) this will deactivate the base transmitter and it will not ring if a call comes in.
d) will record incoming messages for later replay.
e) If you also connect a wired handset it will ring until the call recorder cuts in.
f) If, when a call comes in, in the night if you pick up any handset and hit the green button it will switch on the handset which will switch the transmitter on.
Our comments
Once you know this it is not such a bad system. It’s a shame you can’t charge the handsets without them being on, and it’s a shame that incoming calls won’t wake up the transmitter and the handsets. This means the transmitter needs to be on whenever you want the handsets to ring on an incoming call – unless – if you can hear the ringing from the wired handset (or ringer unit)  anywhere where you need to  in the house then have the transmitter switched off during the day, too. Because all you do on hearing a ringing is to pick up any handset and switch it on. (follow instructions 1a and 1b, above). If you make sure the batteries are good (rechargeable AAA) then occasionally recharge them in the cradles when you are out  – all at the same time and then uncradle them all again.
This was tested on the current GIGASET models 430 and 430A as at July 2017 and confirmed with GIGASET customer helpdesk.
**[probably apart from their most expensive range which they still call ECODECT Plus.]
Please do comment on this and any other makes of DECT phones that may have an ECO mode. We have yet to find out whether the variable transmitter power function still operates and what the “full range” setting does.
Beneficial Environments is committed to minimising electrosmog for the health conscious in our technological surroundings.

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.

Get Wired 2015 – Dr. Martin Blank – Getting Real About EMF

This video is from the Get Wired 2015 conference and features Dr. Martin Blank – Getting Real About EMF.

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.

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.

Mobile Phones and Cancer

Epidemiological studies have begun to show us that low-frequency, non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation correlates with cancer. *

In recent years, a significant share of research into EMF radiation has investigated the impact of mobile phones and cancer.

In 2009, the Journal of Clinical Oncology published findings of a team of seven scientists, who reviewed 23 epidemiological studies on the link between mobile phones and cancer. The team concluded:

although as a whole the data varied, among the 10 higher quality studies, we found a harmful association between cell [mobile] phone use and tumor risk [cancer]. The lowest quality studies, which failed to meet scientific best practices, were primarily industry funded.
The 13 studies that investigated cell phone use fo 10 or more years found a significant harmful association with tumor risk, especially for brain tumors, giving us ample reason for concern about long-term use.

The point about long term exposure is important, many industry funded studies are based on short term exposure and these studies often conclude there is no link between mobile phones and cancer (or indeed other sources of EMF). These results also suggest that, as with tobacco smoke, cancer may be a long-term result based on repeated and/or extended exposures to EM radiation sources.

Other recent research out of Israel reinforces these findings. Israelis are heavy mobile phone users who, on average, increased cell phone usage six-fold between 1997 and 2006. In 2008 Dr. Siegal Sadetzki published a study in the American Journal of Epidemiology that concluded heavy mobile phone users (at least 22 hours per month) were at least 50% more likely to develop cancer of the parotid gland (one of the salivary glands) than those who never or rarely used mobile phones.

In 2011 a review of deaths between 1970 and 2006 from Israel’s National Cancer Registry found that ‘the total number of parotid gland cancers in Israel increased from 4-fold from 1970 to 2006, whereas other major salivary gland cancers remained constant. This result can be thought of as a control experiment. During this period, when parotid gland cancer was inceasing in Israel along with mobile phone use, cancer of the submandibular and sublingual glands (shielded from mobile phone radiation by the jaw bone and tongue, respectively remained constant.

So what can you do to protect yourself from mobile phones and cancer?

  • Use an airtube headset or speaker mode
  • Disable wireless and data when not needed
  • Put the mobile phone into ‘airplane mode’ when not needed at all
  • Do not keep your mobile phone in your pocket
  • Turn off the mobile phone (or ‘airplane’ mode) at night before sleeping
