Electromagnetic fields have been around in different forms since the birth of the universe.
Electric and magnetic fields are part of the electromagnetic spectrum which extends from static electric and magnetic fields, through radio frequency (RF), infrared radiation, and visible light to X and gamma-rays. An electromagnetic field consists of waves of electric and magnetic energy moving together through space.
Part of the electromagnetic spectrum extending from 3 kHz frequency to 300 GHz is referred as radio frequency (RF). Electromagnetic radiation at frequencies above the UV band are classified as "ionizing radiation", because they have enough energy to effect changes in the atoms, by liberating electrons (ionizing) and thus altering their chemical bonds.
Electromagnetic radiation at frequencies below the UV band are classified as "non-ionizing radiation" because they lack the energy to liberate electrons, i.e. Together with the introduction of wireless communication technologies, there has been some public concern about the potential health risks associated with wireless communications including the use of mobile phones and living near base stations. Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) of all frequencies represent one of the most common and fastest growing environmental influences.
Extensive research has been conducted into possible health effects of exposure to many parts of the electromagnetic spectrum.
As noted by the WHO, in the area of biological effects and medical applications of non-ionizing radiation approximately 25,000 articles have been published over the past 30 years. A biological effect occurs when exposure to electromagnetic fields causes some noticeable or detectable physiological change in a biological system which is not necessarily hazardous. Exposure to RF EMF at high levels can cause the heating of tissues that leads to an increase in the body temperature. At frequencies above 10 MHz, the first scientifically-established effect to occur is heating. In May 2011 IARC classified radio frequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B), based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer associated with wireless phone use.
The IARC website lists 285 agents classified as group 2B including RF fields, coffee, gasoline engine exhaust, pickled vegetables, ELF magnetic fields and styrene.
In 2014, IARC published the World Cancer Report and say that the most significant causes of all head and neck cancers are tobacco use and alcohol consumption. A mobile phone or wireless device is a low-power two way radio operating at a maximum of 2 watts (peak). When you make a call on a mobile phone, send or receive text messages or data, you are connected to a nearby base station through a radio frequency signal. When you access data via your mobile device, the central exchange connects you to the internet. Mobile phone base stations are low-power, multi-channel two-way radios located inside an equipment hut or cabinet. The location and positioning of the base station antennas are carefully chosen to match the required coverage area. You also need to be aware of the many different designs of mobile phone base stations that vary widely in their power and characteristics, affecting their potential for exposing people to RF signals.
The SAR from a mobile phone varies considerably during use due to adaptive power control and the connection back to the mobile network. RF EMF from a mobile phone will vary its power level depending on its proximity to a base station using automatic power control. If there is a building, walls, hills, trees or other obstruction between the mobile and the base station, the signal received by base station may also be weaker meaning the RF field strength from the mobile must increase so it can still communicate with the base station. Making a voice call from a mobile phone could lead to greater exposure than texts, emails, pictures, web, TV and downloads. Mobile phone manufacturers must ensure that their products comply with the maximum SAR levels specified in the human exposure guidelines. Mobile phones are tested for compliance at their highest possible power level through rigorous tests and multiple SAR measurements, therefore SAR values reported for each model of mobile phone tend to significantly overstate real-life exposure levels, as they rarely operate at maximum power levels during everyday use. Each model of mobile phone or wireless device is tested using internationally agreed standards. The SAR in the head is tested using a 'phantom' head and the SAR in the body is tested using a 'phantom' torso. A probe inside the liquid measures the electric field strength inside the phantom and uses this to determine the maximum SAR value for the model of phone or device in each particular configuration. Variations in the maximum reported SAR reflect that they were recorded under different conditions but are also influenced by technical parameters such as the antenna used and its placement within the device. SAR is designed to demonstrate compliance with the relevant national or international limits, and in doing so, can be derived from a wide variety of testing configurations that are rarely directly comparable or even reflective of everyday usage conditions. The declared maximum SAR value of a phone does not for example reflect that once a call is established the mobile phone will power down to the minimum power level required to reach the base station and maintain a quality call.
The SAR information for a mobile phone should be available from the manufacturer's web site. A number of national and international organizations have formulated guidelines establishing limits for occupational and general public RF EMF exposure up to 300GHz.
The exposure limits for EMF fields developed by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) - a non-governmental organization in official relations with the WHO, were developed following reviews of all the peer-reviewed scientific literature, including thermal and non-thermal effects. The guidelines are based on evaluations of biological effects that have been established to have health consequences. ICNIRP has an ongoing program to monitor scientific research and ensure the human exposure guidelines are up to date.
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is a professional association headquartered in New York City that is dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence, and includes the International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety (ICES) focused on development and maintenance of EMF Safety Standards.
IEEE C95.1-2005 - Safety Levels with Respect to Human Exposure to Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields, 3 kHz to 300 GHz. The ICNIRP and IEEE guidelines are similar, science based and accepted in many countries around the world. The basic SAR restrictions recommended by ICNIRP for the general public have been set 50 times below the levels at which adverse health effects have been established. ITU (International Telecommunication Union) is the United Nations specialized agency for information and communication technologies – ICTs. The Plenipotentiary Conference which is the top policy-making body of the ITU approved Resolution 176 Human exposure to and measurement of electromagnetic fields (Busan, 2014). Within the Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T) of ITU, ITU-T Study Group 5 (SG5) is the lead study group on ICT environmental aspects of electromagnetic phenomena and climate change. EMF Estimator is a software application that implements the methodology described in ITU-T K.70 to calculate the cumulative radio frequency exposure levels in the vicinity of transmitting antennas. IEC Technical Committee 106 is responsible for preparing international standards on measurement and calculation methods to assess human exposure to electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields. Tiny electrical currents exist in the human body due to the chemical reactions that occur as part of the normal bodily functions, even in the absence of external electric fields.
Low-frequency electric fields influence the human body just as they influence any other material made up of charged particles. Both electric and magnetic fields induce voltages and currents in the body but even directly beneath a high voltage transmission line, the induced currents are very small compared to thresholds for producing shock and other electrical effects. Heating is the main biological effect of the electromagnetic fields of radiofrequency fields.
Biological effects are measurable responses to a stimulus or to a change in the environment. An adverse health effect causes detectable impairment of the health of the exposed individual or of his or her offspring; a biological effect, on the other hand, may or may not result in an adverse health effect. It is not disputed that electromagnetic fields above certain levels can trigger biological effects. A look at the news headlines of recent years allows some insight into the various areas of public concern. In response to growing public health concerns over possible health effects from exposure to an ever increasing number and diversity of electromagnetic field sources, in 1996 the World Health Organization (WHO) launched a large, multidisciplinary research effort.
Conclusions from scientific researchIn the area of biological effects and medical applications of non-ionizing radiation approximately 25,000 articles have been published over the past 30 years.
Some members of the public have attributed a diffuse collection of symptoms to low levels of exposure to electromagnetic fields at home. Effects on pregnancy outcomeMany different sources and exposures to electromagnetic fields in the living and working environment, including computer screens, water beds and electric blankets, radiofrequency welding machines, diathermy equipment and radar, have been evaluated by the WHO and other organizations.

CataractsGeneral eye irritation and cataracts have sometimes been reported in workers exposed to high levels of radiofrequency and microwave radiation, but animal studies do not support the idea that such forms of eye damage can be produced at levels that are not thermally hazardous. Electromagnetic fields and cancerDespite many studies, the evidence for any effect remains highly controversial. A number of epidemiological studies suggest small increases in risk of childhood leukemia with exposure to low frequency magnetic fields in the home.
Electromagnetic hypersensitivity and depressionSome individuals report "hypersensitivity" to electric or magnetic fields.
There is little scientific evidence to support the idea of electromagnetic hypersensitivity. The focus of current and future researchMuch effort is currently being directed towards the study of electromagnetic fields in relation to cancer. The long-term health effects of mobile telephone use is another topic of much current research.
At low frequencies, external electric and magnetic fields induce small circulating currents within the body. There is no doubt that short-term exposure to very high levels of electromagnetic fields can be harmful to health.
WHO's International EMF Project was launched to provide scientifically sound and objective answers to public concerns about possible hazards of low level electromagnetic fields. Despite extensive research, to date there is no evidence to conclude that exposure to low level electromagnetic fields is harmful to human health. The focus of international research is the investigation of possible links between cancer and electromagnetic fields, at power line and radiofrequencies. The Shieldite Triangle Pendant is the newest and most effective form of EMF protection available. Anything that is electronic creates and EMF and causing adverse health effects on you whether you are aware or it or not.
The shieldite Triangle necklace is perfect for personal protection and has about a 4-6 foot radius of protection. Shieldite forms in a unique has a unique molecular structure which allows it to absorb EMFs. Scalar pendants and almost all other EMF protection devices work on the basis of strengthening you in an effort to repair and fight EMF damage that has already occurred. After using shieldite it will become full of the absorbed EMFs and will need to be discharged. You must ground your shieldite when you receive it, it will have absorbed negative EMFs during its time shipping. The Shieldite Triangle necklace will need to be grounded or earthed every 24 hours for 15 minutes. As long as you ground your shieldite necklace it will never stop working and will last a life time. Shieldite is a soft fragile stone, due to this and every piece being hand cut it possible for it to have minor chips or dents around the corners and edges even when in new condition. PurposeThis interview is going to explain to people, in the simplest way possible, the law as written related to Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs), specifically the safety code pertaining to human frequency exposure, the missing information in the code, and clarify with the laws of physics why the frequencies are dangerous as applied.Canada's safety code admits it is missing data. Global Educational Development Institute (GEDI)"The Global Education Development Institute (GEDI) is on the cutting edge of global nursing education.
Curtis Bennett, as a first response manager, has consulted with defense agencies, oil, gas, lumber, mine, and manufacturing industries, hydrologists, fire departments, medicine, energy, governments, municipalities, and insurers. A story with this sensationalist headline ran in most of the National Post chain of newspapers across Canada including the Montreal Gazette. His sensational assertion that Wi-Fi could lead to ovary damage in young girls is a total fabrication. The National Post published a guest editorial by webmaster Lorne Trottier on the Barrie Ontario WiFi incident.
Often the term "electromagnetic field" or EMF is used to indicate the presence of electromagnetic radiation. Television and radio transmitters (including base stations) and microwaves, mobile telephones, and radars produce radio frequency fields. This corresponds to a wavelength of about 103.4 nm, which lies near the lower wavelength-edge of the Ultraviolet (UV) spectrum. As part of its charter to protect public health and in response to public concern, the WHO established the International EMF Project in 1996. Despite the feeling of some people that more research needs to be done, scientific knowledge in this area is now more extensive than for most chemicals.
It contains both a transmitter and a receiver and uses radio frequency fields to send and receive calls, text messages, emails, pictures and data. The base station antennas, which transmit and receive the radio signal, can be mounted on transmission towers, poles, roof-mounted structures or in small microcell boxes providing localized coverage.
Research has shown that at the ground level, the intensity of radio frequency signal from base stations are typically less than one thousandth of those from mobile phones.
The power from a mobile phone base station will vary depending on the number of mobile phone calls and amount of data traffic being carried. Mobile phones are designed to automatically transmit at the lowest possible power to maintain a quality connection.
This measurement is used to determine whether or not a mobile phone complies with the safety standards or guidelines. Keeping the mobile away from the body by using an earpiece or loudspeaker function will significantly reduce exposure.
This is because voice calls are generally made with the mobile phone next to the head, while it is held away from the body when sending texts and emails and watching TV. These higher levels of exposure as a result of a voice call are still less than the ICNIRP guidelines because all phones must comply with international safety standards (see section 5: Relevant standards). The phantoms are filled with liquids that simulate the electrical properties of human tissue. The maximum SAR varies for a number of reasons including the type and location of the antenna, the operating frequency, and test position. The main conclusion from the WHO reviews is that EMF exposures below the limits recommended in the ICNIRP International Guidelines do not appear to have any known consequence on health. ICNIRP presentation: EMF Safety Guidelines - The ICNIRP View presented at the ITU Workshop on Human Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields, Turin, 9 May 2013.
The rationale for having lower limits for the general public is that this group includes children, pregnant women, the elderly and other persons of varying health status or susceptibility, and exposure might be continuous (24 hours a day) and people may be totally unaware of an exposure.
For nearly 150 years, ITU has coordinated the shared global use of the radio spectrum, promoted international cooperation in assigning satellite orbits, worked to improve communication infrastructure in the developing world, and established the worldwide standards that foster seamless interconnection of a vast range of communications systems. The resulting international standards (ITU-T Recommendations) provide high-level frameworks for the management of human exposure to EMFs emitted by telecommunication equipment (best practice regulatory guidelines), and also offer guidelines for the assessment of human exposure based on existing ITU-T Recommendations and standards produced by other standards development organizations (SDOs). EMF exposure limits guidelines are developed by ICNIRP and EMF exposure assessment standards developed by IEC. However, during the 20th century, environmental exposure to man-made electromagnetic fields has been steadily increasing as growing electricity demand, ever-advancing technologies and changes in social behaviour have created more and more artificial sources. When electric fields act on conductive materials, they influence the distribution of electric charges at their surface. Experiments with healthy volunteers indicate that short-term exposure at the levels present in the environment or in the home do not cause any apparent detrimental effects.
Over the course of the past decade, numerous electromagnetic field sources have become the focus of health concerns, including power lines, microwave ovens, computer and TV screens, security devices, radars and most recently mobile phones and their base stations. The International EMF Project brings together current knowledge and available resources of key international and national agencies and scientific institutions.
Reported symptoms include headaches, anxiety, suicide and depression, nausea, fatigue and loss of libido. The overall weight of evidence shows that exposure to fields at typical environmental levels does not increase the risk of any adverse outcome such as spontaneous abortions, malformations, low birth weight, and congenital diseases. However, it is clear that if electromagnetic fields do have an effect on cancer, then any increase in risk will be extremely small.
However, scientists have not generally concluded that these results indicate a cause-effect relation between exposure to the fields and disease (as opposed to artifacts in the study or effects unrelated to field exposure).
They ask whether aches and pains, headaches, depression, lethargy, sleeping disorders, and even convulsions and epileptic seizures could be associated with electromagnetic field exposure.

Recent Scandinavian studies found that individuals do not show consistent reactions under properly controlled conditions of electromagnetic field exposure.
Studies in search for possible carcinogenic (cancer-producing) effects of power frequency fields is continuing, although at a reduced level compared to that of the late 1990's.
No obvious adverse effect of exposure to low level radiofrequency fields has been discovered.
In virtually all ordinary environments, the levels of induced currents inside the body are too small to produce obvious effects. Current public concern focuses on possible long-term health effects caused by exposure to electromagnetic fields at levels below those required to trigger acute biological responses. Shieldite actually transmutes the surrounding electromagnetic fields into a harmless state.
People who are not sensitive to EMFs may not even notice the negative effects until they try shieldite and notice they are less tired, more alert and even have reductions in pain.
Shieldite is primarily carbon based but the molecules form in clusters of 70-80 carbon units to form spheres which can hold the EMFs that are absorbed. Shieldite on the other hand stops EMFs before they negatively affect you in the first place.
This can be achieved by putting it in the physical earth, touching it against a grounded source in your house or using one of our grounding cables.
This story is particularly shocking because of the total lack of professional journalism in uncritically repeating unsubstantiated assertions. The claim by Trower that Wi-Fi can cause DNA damage is based on a study that was later withdrawn because of scientific fraud.
This is patently absurd as can be seen by comparing the WiFi router on the left with a directed beam microwave weapon on the right. The article criticized a story on the CBC news program The National which gave equal weight to claims of various activist alarmist groups vs. These fields are used to transmit information and form the basis of telecommunications as well as radio and television broadcasting all over the world. The purpose of the EMF Project is to assess the scientific evidence of possible health effects of EMF in the frequency range from 0 to 300 GHz. Although the body has its effective ways of regulating its temperature, nevertheless, if the RF exposures are too high, the body may no longer be able to cope. From broadband networks to new-generation wireless technologies, aeronautical and maritime navigation, radio astronomy, satellite-based meteorology and converging fixed-mobile phone, Internet and broadcasting technologies, ITU is committed to connecting the world. There is much greater involuntary exposure now, and it is nearly unavoidablea€”even for those who choose not to go wireless. Everyone is exposed to a complex mix of weak electric and magnetic fields, both at home and at work, from the generation and transmission of electricity, domestic appliances and industrial equipment, to telecommunications and broadcasting. Most biochemical reactions from digestion to brain activities go along with the rearrangement of charged particles.
If sufficiently large, these currents could cause stimulation of nerves and muscles or affect other biological processes. The levels of radiofrequency fields to which people are normally exposed are very much lower than those needed to produce significant heating. For example, listening to music, reading a book, eating an apple or playing tennis will produce a range of biological effects.
Exposures to higher levels that might be harmful are restricted by national and international guidelines.
Based on a recent in-depth review of the scientific literature, the WHO concluded that current evidence does not confirm the existence of any health consequences from exposure to low level electromagnetic fields. To date, scientific evidence does not support a link between these symptoms and exposure to electromagnetic fields. There have been occasional reports of associations between health problems and presumed exposure to electromagnetic fields, such as reports of prematurity and low birth weight in children of workers in the electronics industry, but these have not been regarded by the scientific community as being necessarily caused by the field exposures (as opposed to factors such as exposure to solvents).
The results to date contain many inconsistencies, but no large increases in risk have been found for any cancer in children or adults. In part, this conclusion has been reached because animal and laboratory studies fail to demonstrate any reproducible effects that are consistent with the hypothesis that fields cause or promote cancer. However, given public concerns regarding the safety of cellular telephones, further research aims to determine whether any less obvious effects might occur at very low exposure levels. This is because the negative effects of EMFs have become the norm of how they expect to feel. In the future we may periodically email with other great sales we are having and new product releases. Integrative medicine practice draws upon the best evidence available from allopathic, complementary and alternative medicine offering patients credible information to make informed decisions about their health and well-being.
This incident occurred at the same time as some parents in Barrie Ontario were lobbying to have Wi-Fi banned from their schools. No properly conducted scientific studies have ever demonstrated DNA damage or any other serious effect from microwaves within existing safety standards.
Many home devices also transmit EMF at radio frequencies such as cordless phones, baby monitors and radio-controlled toys.
The time taken to write a text or email or reviewing information already stored on your mobile phone will not result in any significant exposure. This averaging period reflects the fact that it takes time for body temperature to rise during exposure to RF fields. Cell phone users, parents-to-be, young children and pregnant women are at particular risk.Health Issues Linked to EMF ExposureThere is more evidence in this updated report that electromagnetic radiation damages DNA, interferes with DNA repair, and creates greater toxicity in the genes.
Even the heart is electrically active - an activity that your doctor can trace with the help of an electrocardiogram.
The current debate is centred on whether long-term low level exposure can evoke biological responses and influence people's well being. At least some of these health problems may be caused by noise or other factors in the environment, or by anxiety related to the presence of new technologies.
Large-scale studies are currently underway in several countries and may help resolve these issues.
Research on this subject is difficult because many other subjective responses may be involved, apart from direct effects of fields themselves.
If you are sensitive to EMFs you will notice immediate results as shieldite works immediately blocking the harmful EMFs. Virtually all of the public health authorities of the industrialized world including the World Health Organization, and Health Canada have reviewed the scientific literature and concluded that there is no credible evidence that Wi-Fi, cell phones, etc. It also cites studies showing pathological leakage of the blood-brain barrier and altered immune function. Scientists are also investigating the possibility that effects below the threshold level for body heating occur as a result of long-term exposure. The body has sophisticated mechanisms to adjust to the many and varied influences we encounter in our environment.
To date, no adverse health effects from low level, long-term exposure to radiofrequency or power frequency fields have been confirmed, but scientists are actively continuing to research this area. We received a number of favorable comments from visitors to this site during this incident. Also increased is the incidence of acoustic neuroma with the use of mobile & cordless phones.
But, of course, the body does not possess adequate compensation mechanisms for all biological effects. Changes that are irreversible and stress the system for long periods of time may constitute a health hazard. The correlation between wireless technology and the conditions of hyperactivity, learning difficulties, and behavior problems has been seen in both animal and human studies.EMF ProtectionFortunately, all this doesna€™t mean that you have to give up your cell phone in order to protect your health. And you dona€™t even have to limit your calls, get a headset, or watch how close to your body you keep your cell phone when youa€™re not using it.
