Cell Phone exposure and our health
Many of us have been concerned for some time about the potential adverse health effects of our increasing exposure to radio frequency radiation, the kind of non-ionizing radiation emitted and used by a wide variety of everyday devices, such as cell phones. In 2012, a study performed at the Yale School of Medicine was the first to link cell phone exposure and hyperactivity in a study involving adult mice who were exposed as fetuses to a cell phone in talk mode. That study is synopsized here.
Based on the relatively little that is currently known about human exposure to all kinds of radio frequencies, it makes sense to bring this up as an area of concern with your clients. With WiFi, cell phones, televisions and the like in virtually every home, the household is bathed in radio frequency radiation on a nearly continuous basis.
Probably the very best thing that could happen is for the family to forego cell phone use throughout the entire pregnancy, have a landline installed with a corded phone and disconnect their WiFi in favor of Ethernet corded internet access only.
I am fully aware that all but the most vigilant parents will go to what they will surely see as an extreme, since those of childbearing age have grown up with the ubiquitous use of this technology. If they don’t want to do that, discuss how they might limit exposure, especially of the pregnant parent. The various ways this might be accomplished include head phone use during calls; keeping the phone away from their body whenever possible, such as when at home; turning it off as much as is practical; when buying a new phone, paying attention to the SARS rating (which is, by law, included in the Safety brochure that is included with all cell phones); switching to ethernet corded internet access whenever possible.
There are a number of devices on the market that claim to reduce or eliminate exposure to RF EMR (radio frequency electromagnetic radiation) using shielding technologies. However, be aware that anything that truly shields a device may simply push the device to emit more RF EMR to compensate and thus not be protective at all.
One thing that I have found that works entirely differently was invented by Craig Brockie. It can be had by visiting <http://www.nrg4u.org/downloads/FreeShield.pdf>. The primary pdf document is also available by clicking here. This device consists of a design that looks kind of like a mandela that you print out with the best color printer you can find and insert into the back of your cell phone case. He recommends placing it inside the phone's housing directly over the battery, but since many batteries are now sealed, you can just place it over the battery area inside the outer protective case. It is said to use advanced geometry and frequency equations to generate a full spectrum vibration. This full-spectrum vibration helps harmonize and cancel out the harmful effects of disruptive vibrations, such as those emitted by cell phones. You could put one on any device in the house. The original website also had lots of additional information on this invention but unfortunately the website has been taken down. In the meantime, the inventor gave full permission to freely use and distribute his creation.
While I am fully aware this all sounds pretty whoo-whoo, I have had one in my phone for years and I think it helps. Previously, my cell phone either gave me a headache or spaced me out. This is easy, free and as far as I can tell, harmless. If it helps, great, but at least I sincerely believe it will not hurt. Try it!!
