Public health and safety is an exceptionally important subject and the government will ensure that electro-magnetic radiation from mobile phones and towers across the country is within prescribed limits, minister of communications and information technology Kapil Sibal said today.

Science and technology offer new hazards and solutions that throw up a constant conflict between two public interests. But human health is fundamental and should be placed two steps ahead of scientific solutions,“ he said at an international conference organized by The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (Assocham).

Sibal said the government had recently set up an inter-ministerial committee which concluded that emissions from base transceiver stations (BTSs) are one-hundredth of prescribed limits, and hence safe for human beings. “We will soon be conducting online checks on BTS stations to ensure that there is no danger emitting from BTS towers.“

Dr Vijaylaxmi, professor at the department of radiation oncology at University of Texas Health Science Center, said there is no scientific evidence worldwide to prove that electromagnetic radio frequency signals emitted by mobile phones and towers cause brain cancer and tumor.

T.V. Ramachandran, chairman of Assocham committee on communications convergence, said the explosive growth of telephony in India has led to 900 million subscribers and five lakh cell phone towers.

The industry believes in an effective system on health information and communication designed in consensus by scientists, government, industry and public to raise the level of general understanding about the mobile communications industry, and reduce any mistrust and perceived fears, he said.

B.K. Rao, chairman of Assocham committee on health and hospitals, said mobile phones are equipment of toy`s needs and the medical community has not yet documented any major risks on human health.

Assocham secretary general D.S. Rawat said various studies show that electro-magnetic fields produced from mobile handsets and BTS are found at a relatively low end of spectrum and are non-ionising radiation that is the energy carried by them are unable to break chemical bonds in molecules.

Paolo Vecchia, chairman of the International Commission for Non-Ionising Radiation Protection, and C.K. Chou, chairman of the US-based Institute of Electricals and Electronics Engineers, called for harmonization and evolving a common framework of standards to be followed globally.

Cell phone radiations might cause cancer, according to world health organization, which until now they said that there were no known health risk associated with cell phone or tablet use. The WHO’s international agency for Research on Cancer has now tied mobile phone radiation to an increased risk for brain tumor.

The advent of smart phones had caused the world to move forward into the future. From simple text or calls, mobile phones are capable of almost everything, from taking pictures and videos, listening to music, to surfing the internet. Smart phone today has become more like a mobile computer; light wait more than laptop, rather than a mobile phone.

Other than smart phones, tablets such as the popular iPad by apple Inc, as well as other brands like Samsung Galaxy, LG, and Sony Ericsson has also gained a lot of popularity today.

According to latest technology Philippine news, smart phone and tablets has been useful for many, it has also caused a number of health problems for those who spend too much time in front their tablets and smart phones.

According to experts, many users of smart phones and tablets alike had started to experience a number of pains in their thumbs wrist, as well as in their necks. Expert has warned that the strain injuries stemming from long period spent starting at small screens and typing at tiny keys can be debilitating. And the injuries are becoming more common as high-tech gadgets grow ever more popular.

As well as hand injuries, experts point to problems among smart phone and tablet users arising from hour spent leaning over tiny screens.

Affects in social life: Other than effect in health of smart phones and tablets may also risk a number of ailments in terms of social relationship. The biggest at-risk group is children and teenagers who are heavy users of latest phones and gadgets. I know families were people communicate from one room to another via text messages.

Cell Phones Radiation | Kids Are More Exposed and Vulnerable Than Adults

I am sure you have already found that risks and dangers stand behind every corner. Here is the next one called cell phones radiation. When I got familiar with this issue, I suddenly remembered how many times I have let my toddler playing with my mobile or “speaking” with his grandmas. I know you will not throw away your phone when you read this, but hope that it will at least make you smarter when using a cell phone, buying a new one and especially when your kids are nearby such a device.

What is Cell Phones Radiation?

I won’t give you a lesson on cell phones radiation. I will just say that mobile phones emit energy in waves (electromagnetic radiation or EMR) that penetrates the human head and body. And what’s the big deal with this? Television, computers, coffee blenders, hair dryers, and even the vacuum cleaners, they all emit EMR…

In order to sell mobile phones in the USA the manufacturer has to receive an approval from the FCC (Federal Communications Commission). To get that approval there should be SAR (specific absorption rate) tests done. In other words, the manufacturer should prove that the radiation emitted by his phones are within the FCC standards of acceptable radiation absorbed by a cell phone user’s brain and body.

You will ask what the problem is? Actually, there are a few:

– usually cell phones radiation tests are done by the manufacturer himself or by Telecommunications Certification Bodies. The latter take active part in determining the compliance of cell phones together with FCC;
– current SAR measurement is based on animal studies done in the late 70s and early 80s;

– FCC standards give adults only a thin margin of safety over radiation levels that harm animals;
– the cell phones radiation standards ignore children.

Cell phones radiation effects & Why kids are at greater risk?

The World Health Organization classifies cell phones radiation on the IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer) scale in Group 2B, which means possibly carcinogenic. Long-term (over 10 years) cell phone users can get

– glioma: brain tumor,
– acoustic neuroma: tumor of the nerve that connects the year to the brain,
– parotid gland tumors.

Cell phones are around for 2 decades only. I imagine that you are old enough to have had a childhood without cell phones. What about our kids? Approximately at 15 years of age they will be already considered long-term users. Moreover, research shows that kids have thinner and softer skull, which means that their heads absorb more radiation that adults. A recent study of Danish kids that use cell phones and whose mothers have also used cell phones during pregnancy reveals that they are 80% more likely to have hyperactivity and emotional problems. What would these same kids suffer when they reach our age?

How to reduce kids’ exposure to cell phones radiation?

1. Don’t let kids to use cell phones. If this is necessary, it is better for them to send text messages or use a headset or speaker rather than speaking on the phone.
2. Buy them a low-radiation phone. Check the EWG Guide to choose a cell phone with the lowest possible radiation.
3. Don’t let your kids use any antenna caps or keypad covers. This forces the cell phone to use more power and consequently to emit more radiation.

4. Don’t let your baby or toddler play with cell phones.

Next time when you plan to buy a cell phone, apart from the look and features, consider also the radiation level. Be informed and take the best decisions to protect your family and yourself.

December 14, 2011

Scientists have developed a device using pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) that is capable of addressing post-operative pain, enhancing growth and repair in human tissues.
Approved by the United States Aeronautic Space Agency (NASA), United States Food and Drug Administra-tion (FDA), and the World Health Organisation (WHO), PEMF is employed as a drugless therapy for managing pains and reversing cell damage.
A four-year collaborative study by NASA has demonstrated the efficacy of electromagnetic fields to stimulate growth and repair in mammalian tissues.
The four-year study used human donors “to define the most effective PEMF for enhancing growth and repair in mammalian tissues.”
The study utilised “nerve tissue which has been refractory to efforts to stimulate growth or enhance its repair regardless of the energy used.”
According to the investigators, all other tissues have demonstrated growth and repair stimulation with appropriate PEMF. .
In the gene discovery array (chip technology that surveyed 10,000 human genes), the investigators found up-regulation of 150 genes associated with growth and cell restoration.
The study concluded: “The up-regulation of these genes is in no manner marginal with gene sites for collagen production and growth the most actively stimulated. .
“We have clearly demonstrated the bioelectric/biochemical potentiation of nerve stimulation and restoration in humans as a documented reality.
“The most effective electromagnetic field for repair of trauma was square wave with a rapid rate of change which saw cell growth increased up to 4.0 times.”
The investigators recommended: “One may use square wave EM fields with rapid rate of change for; repairing traumatized tissues; moderating some neurodegenerative diseases; and developing tissues for transplantation.”
According to the astronomers, this is the first study to clarify technologies and efficacy parameters for tissue growth and restoration.
In Nigeria, designed PEMF called Depth-Empulse has been introduced for use in healthcare facilities, in prevention of tissue death and pain following trauma or illness without drugs by Kresta Overseas Limited.
Head, Electromagnetic Research and Education Unit, Kresta Overseas Limited, Dr. Tony Didigu, said studies in Nigeria by Prof. Olaogun of Ife University Teaching Hospital; Dr. Birabi of Shell Hospital PortHarcout and others show Depth-Empulse is efficacious in healing and pain relief without drugs. Depth- Empulse devices are in use in National Assembly Clinic, some tertiary Hospitals and several hospitals nationwide.”
The medical doctor said Depth-Empulse is approved by FDA; and recommended by NASA and WHO as efficacious and without side effects.
Didigu explained Depth-Empulse mechanism of action: “It acts as a catalyst to speed up free radical neutralization by antioxidants 100 times faster than occurs in the body. It restores destabilised calcium balance in the cells and thus prevents massive mitochondrial production of damaging free radicals. It increases the synthesis of mitochondria by 300% leading to enhanced A.T.P. production, oxidative capacity and endurance.
“Depth-Empulse stimulates or up-regulates the synthesis of 150 classes of genes responsible for tissue restoration and repair, and the production of a cluster of cytoprotective proteins, HSP 70, growth hormones, matrix proteins, new blood vessels, increased osteoblast population and collagen synthesis. This stimulated repair and restoration process involves all tissues particularly the brain tissue, which has been found to be very responsive to electromagnetic fields.”
Didigu said Depth-Empulse also down regulates or stops the activity or production of destructive genes, such as the ones responsible for the formation of osteoclasts.

2011-12-08

Radiations emitted from cell phones may protect against and even reverse Alzheimer’s disease, a new study has revealed.
Researchers at the University of South Florida conducted a study that exposed 96 mice, most of whom had been genetically altered to develop the Alzheimer’s disease as they aged, to electromagnetic waves generated by mobile phones.

The mice were zapped with 918MHz of frequency twice a day for one hour each time over a period of seven to nine months – the equivalent of several decades in humans, the Herald Sun reported.
The study revealed that in older mice with Alzheimer’s, long-standing exposure to the electromagnetic fields caused deposits in the brain of beta-amyloid, a protein fragment that accumulates in the brain of Alzheimer’s sufferers to form the disease’s signature plaques, to be erased.

Memory impairment in the older mice also vanished, the study showed.
Young adult mice with no apparent signs of memory impairment were protected against Alzheimer’s disease after several months of exposure to the mobile phone waves.

And the memory levels of normal mice with no genetic inclination for Alzheimer’s disease were enhanced after exposure to the electromagnetic waves.
“Frankly, I started this work a few years ago with a hypothesis that the electromagnetic fields from a mobile phone would be deleterious to Alzheimer’s mice,” said lead author Gary Arendash, a professor at the University of Southern Florida.

Based on the findings in mice, the researchers anticipate that electromagnetic field exposure could be an effective, non-invasive and drug-free way to prevent and cure Alzheimer’s disease in humans. (ANI)

Yeah okay, that’s probably quite wise. Is this a case of scientists, given that there are thousands studies and we don’t ever read about them in the newspapers, is this the scientists fudging the numbers? Is it the 5 or 6 corporations that control well over 80% of the media in the United States including over 11,000 magazines? Are the scientists and media acting as corporate shows or have we just somehow overlooked all of this?
It’s a complex situation and I think we’ll know in some years when we look back on this. If we do have a global pandemic of pediatric illness, people are going to ask, “How did this happen?” Well one of the reasons that this happened is that the regulations are not in line with the science, and are not protecting us. So the industry will say these exposure are low, have you heard that, they’re so low.

COMBINED EFFECTS OF WIRELESS RADIATION AND OTHER POLLUTION
But nobody is looking at the combined effect of the exposures. My concern is, if we had a factory beside the school and the fumes from this factory had been shown to cause a series of biological effects; weaken the brain blood barrier, damage to DNA, suppression of the immune system, cardiac effects, and cognitive impairment; how long would that factory stay beside the school? There is evidence that this electro-pollution, now of course we can’t see it, we can’t smell it, most of us can’t feel it, but there is evidence that our children are at risk.

If this is true and wireless technology causes cancer how can society manage now that everything is wireless? It’s everywhere, isn’t it? This is the dilemma. Yeah, it’s in your book, you don’t even have to have a cell phone, you’re been irradiated by the towers. That’s right, I call upon parents and grandparents to realize that now we can’t wait. As the Council of Europe pointed out, the health regulators have not been quick off the mark to protect public health from tobacco, asbestos, lead – remember lead and gasoline?

Wireless Radiation Threatens The Health Of Our Children
Yeah. Well they’ve also found lead in babies’ bibs and in children’s toys. So as a parent I really call upon your viewers to realize that we have to take steps. There are safer solutions. We can keep the technology. Kids in schools can have internet access. But it’s a wired hookup or a fiber optic hook up. So I’ve put a plan in place for my family with the input of world leading experts. I really encourage parents and grandparents or anyone that really cares about their health to realize we have to take action. This is what the Council calls precautionary principle and I really feel it’s well worth our children’s risk. The health of our children is at risk. I mean, don’t you think that we should take action to protect them?

Yeah, it seems like quite a rational thing to do and also to take some of those thousands of studies that you have identified and get them wider publicity. Thank you so much for being here with us. Thank you so much for letting people know what I call – the wireless wake up call.

Dr Crofton makes some very good points. But I would go even further, the real problem is not just wireless radiation it is electromagnetic field exposure generally, we all need to be taking steps to reduce our EMF exposure.

Strong Mobile Phone Radiation Disturbs Learning

MOBILE phones are an integral part of modern telecommunications. The effect of mobile phone radiation on human health has always been a controversial subject. Now, neuroscientists from Bochum have for the first time explained the effects of high frequency electromagnetic fields (HEFs) derived from mobile phones.

They proved that extremely high-powered electromagnetic fields (EMFs) indeed influence learning processes on the synaptic level within the brain, independent from other factors like stress.

Scientists of the Department of Neuroanatomy and Molecular Brain Research (Professor Dr. med. Rolf Dermietzel) in cooperation with the Chair of

Electromagnetic Theory of the University of Wuppertal, performed the new study on rats.

For the experiment, rats were placed into differently powered non-thermal HEFs in the UMTS (Universal Mobile Communication System) operating range. Synaptic learning and memory formation were analysed by electrophysiological methods. Furthermore, all animals were tested for stress hormone release immediately following the HEF exposure.

Although there was daily training and effortless contact to the exposure environment, increases in blood derived stress hormone levels could be detected for all exposed groups. The stress clearly influences learning and memory formation on the synaptic level in the rat brain. High powered EMFs (SAR 10 W/kg) also have a significant effect on learning and memory formation. In contrast to this, weak EMFs (SAR 0 and 2 W/kg) lead to no detectable changes or impairments.

“These results cannot directly be transferred to humans”, explained Dr. Nora Prochnow (Medical Faculty of the RUB).

“But in the animal model, it can be demonstrated that neuronal mechanisms of synaptic learning can serve as a target for high powered EMFs,” added Prochnow.

However, there is no need for serious concerns: humans are not exposed to this type of high powered EMFs during dailymobile phone use

Meanwhile the World Health Organization (WHO) has released a study that labels cell phone radiation as a possible carcinogen, a classification that puts it in the same category as lead, gas exhaust, and chloroform. The study was conducted by the organization’s International Agency for Research of Cancer (IARC), which included 31 scientists from 14 countries. This disclosure is based on research that has shown an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer, associated with wireless phone use.

In an excerpt from the WHO/IARC press release, Dr Jonathan Samet (University of Southern California, USA), overall Chairman of the IARC Working Group, indicated that “the evidence, while still accumulating, is strong enough to support a conclusion and the 2B classification. The conclusion means that there could be some risk, and therefore we need to keep a close watch for a link between cell phones and cancer risk.”

Once you have addressed your mattress, you’d be well advised to address the amount of electromagnetic radiation in your bedroom – especially if you are pregnant, or planning to become pregnant.

As discussed by Dr. Klinghardt , electromagnetic fields interfere not only with your biology, but with that of your unborn child as well. He performed a small study showing that autism can actually be predicted based on the EMF levels of your sleeping quarters while pregnant! He found that if you sleep in strong electromagnetic fields during pregnancy, your child will likely begin to exhibit neurological abnormalities within the first two years of life.

Here are several guidelines that can help turn your bedroom into an EMF-free zone suitable for health-promoting restorative sleep:
1. Use only battery devices near your bed — Many electric clocks produce high magnetic fields so use a battery powered clock instead.
2. Turn off the fuses to your bedroom at night
3. Eliminate radio frequency (RF) sources — Radio frequency signals from portable phones, cell phones, and wireless devices have been shown to interfere with your body’s immune system so don’t keep cell phones or charging stations in your bedroom. It’s also recommended to turn off the Wi-Fi in your home at night.

4. Shield your bed with a special metalized fabric, to protect yourself from harmful frequencies that can disrupt cellular communication. This recommendation may be particularly important if you’re pregnant.

5. If you are remodeling you can also use material called ‘radiant barrier’ between the dry wall and the frame of your home. This is a strengthened aluminum foil that will reflect most of the radiation from coming into your home. It should also be applied the ceiling.
It is relatively inexpensive and will also pay for itself in reduced heating and cooling bills. However, it isn’t cost effective if you have to tear out your current walls, so it’s really only practical in new homes or remodeling projects. I installed this in my home when I renovated it and it virtually eliminated all external EMFs. The downside however is that it is VERY difficult to get any cell phone reception in my home.

Biological Problems Associated with Electromagnetic Stressors

In the book Cross Currents, Dr. Robert Becker (whom I mentioned earlier) states that biological problems associated with external electromagnetic stressors fall into two major categories:
1. Brain (behavioral abnormalities, learning disabilities, altered bio-cycles and stress responses)
2. Growing tissue (embryos, genetics and cancer)

More recent studies seem to confirm his conclusions, as most of the health problems researchers now associate with EMF and microwave radiation exposure fall neatly into these two categories. One good source that demonstrates this is the 2009 special EMF issue of the Journal of Pathophysiology, which contains over a dozen different studies on the health effects of electromagnetic fields and wireless technology.

Cancer has been high on the list from the beginning, and at least as far as cell phones are concerned, the evidence is overwhelming that cell phone use significantly increases your risk of certain types of brain tumors.
Since cancer can take decades before manifesting, children are particularly at risk, as they are now growing up in an environment saturated with radiation. (Even toddlers are now talking on cell phones!) Today’s children will be exposed to previously unimaginable levels of radiation over the course of their lifetimes.
The BioInitiative Report also includes studies showing evidence for exposure to electromagnetic fields and:
• Effects on Gene and Protein Expression (Transcriptomic and Proteomic Research)
• Genotoxic Effects – RFR and ELF DNA Damage
• Stress Response (Stress Proteins)
• Effects on Immune Function
• Effects on Neurology and Behavior
• Brain Tumors, Acoustic Neuromas, and childhood cancers like leukemia
It seems quite clear that sleeping on a bed that can amplify the amount of radiation you’re exposed to night after night is simply not a good idea.

Shopping for a Safe Mattress
Taking into account that metal coils can act as an antenna and be potentially magnetized, and that most box spring mattresses contain toxic flame retardant chemicals, your safest bet is to look for an organic, chemical-free mattress that does not contain metal coils.
One way to find a safe mattress is to have a doctor or chiropractor write you a prescription for a chemical-free mattress, and then find a manufacturer to make one for you. You can also search for 100% wool, toxin-free mattresses. Many of these mattresses also contain latex for support in lieu of coil springs, giving you the best of both worlds.

You can also avoid the toxins by finding a mattress that uses a Kevlar, bullet-proof type of material instead of chemicals for fire-proofing. I got mine from Stearns and Foster. I’m quite happy with this mattress as it is FAR more comfortable than a number of the organic mattresses I had purchased in the past.

Also keep in mind that metal frames and headboards can amplify and distort magnetic fields, including the natural magnetic field from the earth, which can lead to non-restful sleep. Use natural materials, such as a wood frame, instead.

Dr. Mercola | August 18 2010

The rate of breast cancer in Western countries is 10 percent higher in the left breast than in the right. This also is true for the skin cancer melanoma.
Researchers have suggested a surprising explanation for this — and for the dramatic increase in rates of breast cancer and melanoma over the past three decades.
In Japan, there is no correlation between the rates of melanoma and breast cancer, and there is no left-side prevalence for either disease. The rate of breast cancer in Japan is also significantly lower than in the West.
This may be due to differences in sleeping habits in Japan and Western countries. Previous research has shown that people prefer to sleep on their right sides, possibly as a way of reducing weight stress on the heart.
This is most likely the same in both the East and the West, but the futons used for sleeping in Japan are mattresses placed directly on the bedroom floor, in contrast to the elevated box springs and mattress of beds used in the West.
According to Scientific American:
“… [A] 2007 study in Sweden conducted between 1989 and 1993 … revealed a strong link between the incidence of melanoma and the number of FM and TV transmission towers covering the area where the individuals lived …
Consider, however, that even a TV set cannot respond to broadcast transmissions unless the weak electromagnetic waves are captured and amplified by an appropriately designed antenna. Antennas are simply metal objects of appropriate length sized to match the wavelength of a specific frequency of electromagnetic radiation.”
In the U.S., bed frames and box springs are made of metal, and the length of a bed is exactly half the wavelength of FM and TV transmissions. The maximum strength of the field develops 75 centimeters above the mattress, so when sleeping on your right side, your left side will be exposed to the highest field strength.
Dr. Mercola’s Comments:

This Scientific American article highlights some very interesting research from Sweden — a country that is on the forefront when it comes to investigating the harmful health effects of electromagnetic fields (EMF), and micro wave radiation such as that from cell phones.
Although the US is quite resistant to the idea that our everyday technology might be contributing to epidemics like heart disease and cancer, other countries, particularly in Europe, are facing this problem more head on.
Sweden, for example, formed an association called FEB – The Swedish Association for the ElectroSensitive, to address the emerging problem of electromagnetic hypersensitivity. The association produces and distributes educational literature that has helped raise awareness about the phenomenon around the world. Mast Action UK is doing similar work in Great Britain, as well as the Electromagnetic Radiation Alliance in Australia.
With everything I know about the health dangers associated with electromagnetic fields (EMF) and micro waves from cell phones, WiFi routers and cell phone towers, I’m convinced electromagnetic hypersensitivity is a real and looming health disaster.
I’ve previously written about the health dangers of EMFs and other types of radiation, especially in your bedroom, but here the researchers are linking two very specific cancers – melanoma and breast cancer — to commonly used beds, because coil-spring mattresses can actually act as a giant antenna!
Your Mattress – A Restorative Haven or a Disease-Promoting Zone?
In Western countries, the most common type of mattress is an elevated box spring that contains metal coils, while in Japan, people typically sleep on futon mattresses, which typically contain cotton or wool, placed directly on the floor.
According to researchers Hallberg and Johansson, a number of studies indicate that increasing rates of melanoma (the deadliest type of skin cancer) can be linked to immune-disrupting radiation from FM radio and TV transmission towers, adding that “geographical areas covered by several transmitters show higher incidences of melanoma than areas covered by one transmitter.”
Studies have also linked radiation to brain tumors, and DNA damage that might precipitate a number of different diseases and health problems.
These connections are strengthened when you consider the researchers’ explanation of how your box spring mattress actually acts like an antenna; attracting and amplifying whatever radiation might be zipping through your bedroom.
Scientific American explains this quite well:
“Antennas are simply metal objects of appropriate length sized to match the wavelength of a specific frequency of electromagnetic radiation. Just as saxophones are made in different sizes to resonate with and amplify particular wavelengths of sound, electromagnetic waves are selectively amplified by metal objects that are the same, half or one quarter of the wavelength of an electromagnetic wave of a specific frequency.
Electromagnetic waves resonate on a half-wavelength antenna to create a standing wave with a peak at the middle of the antenna and a node at each end, just as when a string stretched between two points is plucked at the center.
In the U.S. bed frames and box springs are made of metal, and the length of a bed is exactly half the wavelength of FM and TV transmissions that have been broadcasting since the late 1940s.
… Radiation envelops our bodies so that the maximum strength of the field develops 75 centimeters above the mattress in the middle of our bodies.
When sleeping on the right side, the body’s left side will thereby be exposed to field strength about twice as strong as what the right side absorbs.”
Could this explain why Japan has much lower rates of cancer compared to the US and Europe, and why the Japanese do not have higher rates of left- than right-sided breast cancer?
I believe it may be a part of the puzzle, yes.
Naturally, there are many other factors that come into play as well, including diet, chemical exposures, and vitamin D deficiency, just to name a few.
However, the theory that you may be promoting cancer by sleeping on a metal coil-spring mattress that amplifies ambient radiation is quite convincing.

Now, a couple of my readers have commented that the quote from Scientific American makes little sense because TV and radio broadcast on a number of different wavelengths, and beds come in many different sizes.

These concerns can also be valid, and I make no claims of having the in-depth technological expertise to either support or refute this particular Scientific American author’s explanation.

However, I believe sleeping on metal is not in your best interest health-wise, (and qualified scientist raised the question to begin with). The total effect will naturally be entirely individual, and dependent on a number of factors, such as the amount of radiation zipping through your room; proximity to transmission towers; number and type of electronics kept in your bedroom and their proximity; your current state of health and your susceptibility to EMF; the material of the rest of your bed… I could go on, but I’m sure most of you are wise enough to get the picture.

Becoming truly health conscious is much like reaching for spiritual enlightenment. It’s not about nitpicking on minor details. It’s about discerning patterns and revealing the big picture. It’s not about avoiding “sins” – in the case of health, avoiding everything that could possibly harm you – it’s about making healthier, saner choices. You can’t make those choices unless you know what’s good for you, and one of the ways you discover better options is by revealing what’s detrimental.

There’s no question in my mind that EMFs can have a dramatic, negative effect on your health, and certain factors may, in some cases, turn up the dial on EMFs and increase it’s harmful effects. Could your mattress do this? I say, “possibly, yes.”
