Do you remember a time without Wi-Fi, or even your mobile phone?
In just a span of around 20 years we’ve leaped beyond what we thought was possible and our lives have become so saturated with a range of technology that the average person probably barely knows how it all works.
In particular within the last few years we’ve begun to see the initial roll-out of 5G wireless technology.
How many have even heard of that? And how many would question what effect this has on our health?
We’ve heard about mobile phones causing brain tumors, but how does the introduction of yet more of this technology affect us?
Rather than wait for an answer from mainstream media sources, let’s look at some of the information we have already at our finger tips and discern what is good for us.
You could begin to trawl through hundreds of scientific research here.
But let’s cut to the chase and discover how EMFs (Electric and Magnetic Frequency) could be affecting our sleep.
Science shows us that EMFs tend to disrupt blood chemistry and the central nervous system, and cause damage to the cardiovascular system. Further more, damage to the thyroid and pineal gland has also been documented.
Our sleep becomes affected due to disruption in our melatonin levels, which also serves as an antioxidant that can repair DNA damage, and reduce growth of cancer cells. Thyroid hormone levels can also be interfered with through wireless radiation.
A Russian researcher, Valentina Nikitina (author of Occupational and Population Health Risk of Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields), has shown that EMF exposure can lead to premature aging and this down to the fact that people who lack adequate sleep will appear older.
Meanwhile, Dr Russel Reiter has pointed out the magnetic fields tend to produce higher rate of cancer in any body tissue and can predispose us to many neuro-degenerative disorders as well:
“…EMFs do decrease serum melatonin as well as light at night. I had a fascinating conversation with Dr. Reiter when we were both lecturing at a medical conference in Mexico city. Dr. Reiter insists that all other lights inhibit melatonin production.”
– Dr. Howard W. Fisher, in an article written for Eternity Watch.
So why does the communications industry turn the other cheek when the evidence of the dangers have been piling up for decades?
Already there has been an appeal from a variety of scientists was sent to Antonio Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations outlining:
“Numerous scientific publications have found that EMF affects living organisms at levels far below international exposure guidelines adopted by most industrialized nations. There is discrepancy in how this matter is considered at the WHO, however. While WHO accepted its International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC)’s recommendation that classifies both ELF/EMF and RF/EMF as Group 2B “Possible Carcinogens,” it also, in direct contrast to these warnings, recommends the adoption of the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection’s (ICNIRP) guidelines for exposure standards. These guidelines, developed by a self-selected 2 independent industry group, have long been criticized as not protective given the science now established.”
So, with France having already banned Wi-Fi technology in nursery schools since 2015: and the French National Library and several universities, in Paris have removed Wi-Fi networks , perhaps we individuals could use this as a call to take measures into our own hands rather than wait for the green light from our own government?
How do we do this?
First you could try a wired connection (they’re supposed to be faster than Wi-Fi, so there’s a bonus right away). Turn off Wi-Fi at night or when not in use. And you could even turn your mobile off (certainly don’t sleep with it under your pillow!). If you want to go further then you could investigate the effectiveness of crystals, stones or the Q-Link pendant which is very popular among those seeking to mitigate the effects of EMF exposure.
