How to Protect Yourself and Your Loved Ones from Electromagnetic Radiation
The radiation from electromagnetic fields (EMFs) can pose dangerous health risks like sleeping problems, burning sensations on the skin, depression and even leukemia. EMF radiation can affect a wide range of ages. It is undetected by the naked human eye. As such it is hard to completely avoid EMF radiation without the help of specialised equipment. Today, in an age where people use gadgets frequently, it is very common to be exposed to low levels of EMF radiation.
What You Can Do
Electronic particles are everywhere. When they move together, they produce electromagnetic waves. Electrons can go through different types of matter. You can implement the following counter measures to help prevent exposure to this dangerous type of radiation.
- Reduce electric device usage. For starters, you need to minimize the use of electrical devices such as mobile gadgets and appliances. This is not only to save money but also to lower the EMF waves emitted by your electrical equipment. You need to unplug the appliances if they are not in use. It will also be very helpful to reduce the time you spend using your laptop.
Experts strongly discourage prolonged skin contact with your laptop. Specialists further explain that compared to other electrical devices, laptops emit the highest levels of EMFs, especially when plugged in. The EMF from laptops and other mobile devices can cause disrupted sleeping time.
- Wear protective products. Because the electromagnetic radiation cannot be easily detected through physical examination. Wearable products like necklaces, pendants and bracelets are the best option. They come in a variety of colours and designs. You have the option to choose products according to your style. In case you are not a fan of necklaces or bracelets, you may opt for key chains.
- Protect your favourite parts of the house. To ensure your family’s safety from EMF radiation, you should also use EMF protection products. Similar to the wearable products, decorative protection products also work well in deflecting electromagnetic radiation. There are several decorative products like Zen stones and crystals that are made from anti-radiation materials.
- Avoid low voltage lights. Low voltage bulbs are preferred by homeowners because they are cheaper to use instead of the high voltage type. However, using them comes with a higher cost – increased EMF wave exposure. Higher radiation is produced from the transformer or ballast of energy-efficient bulbs.
According to the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), the public exposure limit for EMFs is set at 200 µT while the limit for occupational exposure is 1,000 µT. Be more mindful of the dangers of EMF radiation. Follow to the steps above to protect yourself and everyone you love.
