Electromagnetic fields are nothing new. They’ve been circulating through our homes ever since the first electrical wires were introduced. However, with the advent of wireless technology, these fields and the radiation they bring with them has grown enormously.
And despite growing concerns amongst the scientific community about the amount of radiation we are subjected to by cellphones, cellphone towers, and Wi-Fi networks, the rollout of the national 5G network continues apace.
So what does this mean for you as a cell phone user? What does science say about the dangers EMF radiation presents to your health? And how can you protect yourself?
What is EMF Radiation? Where Does It Come From?
Since the dawn of time, the sun has been sending down electric magnetic fields and therefore radiation. But it wasn?t until scientists discovered that the electricity power lines also emitted radiation that researchers started to take a closer look at what was really going on. Soon they discovered that medical procedures such as X-Rays and MRI scans also emit high doses of radiation.
It quickly became clear that all devices that use electromagnetic fields emitted radiation. Therefore, household items such as televisions, personal computers, microwaves were all quickly discovered to emit radiation. Scientists were relatively at ease with knowing this was the case, stating that both separation distance and limited exposure should have no adverse effect on the body.
However, that all changed with the advent of cell phones, cell phone towers, and Wi-Fi networks that connected all of these EMF-radiation-emitting devices together. Suddenly human beings went from healthy separation to spending most of our waking hours looking at a screens and devices that emit radiation.
The average American checks their phone 52 times per day. What’s more, there’s no slowing the growth of smartphones down. The number of individuals who own one now stands at 270 million a staggering 85% of the American population.
But what exactly should you be worried about? Why is cell phone radiation such a danger to your health?
What the Science Says About Cell Phone Radiation
The first organization to raise concerns about EMF radiation was the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). Back in 2011, they classified electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans after a study revealed that wireless phone use increased the chances of developing a specific type of brain cancer, glioma. Another more recent study produced similar results. Demonstrating that EMF radiation increased the chances of contracting Leukemia.
But the most worrying results have been in the studies involving children. Numerous studies have illustrated the dangers of children being exposed to cell phone radiation. They are more at risk because they have proportionally smaller brains and skulls, yet still receive exposure to the same levels of EMF radiation.
Worse still, the problems we as a population face from cellphone and other similar radiation is about to get a whole lot worse with the onset of 5G (5th Generation) networks.
Why 5G is Set to Increase EMF Radiation Everywhere
Up until very recently, 4G mobile broadband and cellphone networks have been built to meet the needs of human beings. But with the roll out of 5G, the focus has shifted from serving human beings, to serving machines. This will help to create an ?Internet of Things? which will see everything from our fridge freezer to our beloved pet?s collar connected to each other using wireless networks. The move would see more data transferred at currently-untapped high frequencies.
The issue? High frequencies don?t travel very far.
For 5G to work effectively, it requires a series of so-called ?mini-cellphone towers? to support the continuous transfer of data over high frequencies. It?s likely that you?ll start to notice small antennas popping up on every lamp post and and utility pole in your neighborhood. Each of them emit the same amount of radiation as an airport scanner (beginning to see the problem?).
In 2015 there were 308,000 wireless antennas on cell towers and buildings. By the time 5G has been rolled out nationwide, you can expect that number to exceed a billion. Bearing in mind what the science says regarding cancer and cell phone radiation, you?ve got every reason to be uncomfortable with these figures. Especially considering the network hasn?t been subjected to a single human safety test.
So how can you protect yourself from these harmful electromagnetic fields? What is there in the way of EMF protection?
Protect Yourself and Children from Cell Phone Radiation
While it?s true that limiting your use of a cell phone and keeping your distance from it when not in use lessens the risks associated with cell phone radiation, it?s perhaps not entirely realistic. Most of us depend on our cell phone almost as if it were a part of our body.
Therefore, you need to invest in EMF protection to safeguard against the radiation these devices emit. One of the best ways to do so is with a Body Align? Cell Protect Disc. This disc is simply placed on the back of the device and gets to work right away minimizing your exposer to any of the harmful effects of EMF radiation. It gives you peace of mind that you are receiving maximum radiation protection 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
So if you want to protect yourself and your loved ones from the potentially deadly EMF radiation that is set to be intensified by the rollout of 5G, go to our Cell Protect Disc page and get your EMF protection now!
