“Children should be able to live a life free from electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure and radio frequency (RF) radiation pollution and it is time that we all took a stand against this.”
― Steven Magee, Toxic Health
An electromagnetic field (EMF) is a physical field produced by electrically charged objects. It affects the behavior of charged objects in the vicinity of the field (Wikipedia). Digest this for a moment ... it affects the behavior of a charged object ... and guess what, the human body is extremely conductive. Take a look at the 'EMF spectrum' below; it represents the wide range of radiation frequencies that exist. The natural radiation from the Earth and the Sun has been with us since the dawn of time, but it's only in the last century where we have flooded our environment with radiation, ranging from the electricity we depend on, to cell phones and WiFi, that we are also becoming very dependent on. And whilst the sun sets, our use and exposure to other low and high frequency radiation, does not, which creates a gateway for damage to occur.
There is a large body of solid science showing that EMF has many and varied effects on our biology, such as the damage and mutations of our DNA, an increase risk of cancer and degenerative diseases, and a decrease in fertility, just to name a few. (Blank, PhD). Whilst this electronic pollution is unavoidable, as individuals we can make smart choices in the way we interact with EMF, especially by creating a healthy home and sleep environment for our body to do what it naturally is created to do - heal and repair. Sleep is by far the most critical time your body should be shielded from EMF's as it is the time the brain communicates with the rest of the body. As Gittleman shares in her book Zapped, you've probably had the experience of losing a radio station or even picking up another when near a high voltage power line or cell phone tower. The same can be said to our cells when they are exposed to EMF and can potentially drop or muddle up a critical conversation, such as repairing the blood brain barrier.
