Are Baby Monitors really safe?

Baby Monitors can be extremely dangerous

Baby Monitors can be extremely dangerous

Modern Baby Monitors can be just as dangerous as Smart Phones or Cordless Phones.

There are two parts to a Baby Monitor:
The unit that is next to the Baby’s head and the unit that is near the Parent.

Some Baby Monitors just transmit sounds and videos of the baby and others allow the parent to speak to the Baby.

Both can be very devastating. Some report that a wireless baby monitor less than 39 inches from a baby’s crib is roughly equivalent to the microwave radiation emitted from a cell tower less than 200 yards away.

When we have measured Baby Monitors, the worst Baby Monitor is over 120 times the safe level.

In the videos, we have used a Wireless / WiFi meter to show where a safe distance for the unit next to the baby. After moving a distance of 30 feet, we were still not at a safe distance for one specific Baby Monitor.

This Baby Monitor was a DECT model which is now a technology that is used in Cordless Phones. Most DECT units constantly produce radiation – even if the baby is not making any noise.

On this Baby Monitor, even the parental unit puts out harmful radiation. In a video testing the parental unit, we again were not at a safe distance of over 30 feet.

This parental unit is often worn by a parent because it has a belt clip or is kept on the night stand – right next to the parent’s head. These parental units also use the DECT technology which is very harmful.

We tested another Baby Monitor that was a lot better and did not use the DECT technology. The unit by the Baby’s head was a lot less harmful radiation – but it could still not be right next to the Baby’s head. The parental unit of this Baby Monitor was less harmful and could be a lot closer to the parent. The only way to be sure is to use a Wireless / WiFi meter to test for the levels of radiation produced by Baby Monitors.

There are very easy Wireless / WiFi meters to test Baby Monitors that only use LED lights.
– Green LED’s is safe for Sleeping areas
– Yellow LED’s is safe for Non-Sleeping areas
– Amber LED’s is not safe for any areas and is up to 20 times over the safe level
– Red LED’s is not safe for any areas and is up to 120 times over the safe level.

The only way to be absolutely sure of the safety of your baby or grand baby is to measure with a Wireless / WiFi meter.

Wireless / WiFi Meter

Acousticom-2
WiFi / Wireless Meter

If you have any questions, please watch the videos testing each unit of the Baby Monitors.
The Wireless / WiFi meter can also be used for cell phones, cordless phones, iPads, Tablets, Kindle, wireless routers, wireless printers, Bluetooth devices, wireless game consoles – any device that uses Wireless / WiFi technology.

Note: Any electronic devices that have the capability of using Wireless / WiFi technology are normally not turned off if they are hardwired.

Only a Wireless / WiFi meter can determine this.

Normally if you hardwire an electronic device, the Wireless / WiFi can be turned off. Also, a good principle to follow, is whenever an electronic device is not being used, just turn it off. This will eliminate all the Wireless /WiFi radiation.

Video – Cancer in Your Kitchen-Microwave

We’ve all heard that microwave ovens emit dangerous radiation.  But just how bad is it?  Watch this 1-minute video and find out the shocking truth!  You may even want to remove your pets while the microwave is being used.

After having watched this brief video, are you ready to walk out of the room when your microwave is in use?  And what about your pets?  Don’t they deserve to exit the area when that microwave oven is in use?

A lady I met just recently told me about her husband. Whenever he would cook anything in a microwave oven he would stand right in from of it. She tried to tell her husband not to stand in front of the microwave oven.  But he would not listen. Unfortunately, she finished by saying her husband now has cancer in his abdominal area.  Every single microwave oven we have measured has generated levels of radiation that are unsafe.  Right in front of the microwave oven, the Radiation level is normally 120 times more than the safe level.

The Acousticom2 is used to measure the Electromagnetic Radiation from a microwave oven.  You can measure your own.  I guarantee you will be a “hit” at any party!  Seriously, this is something you will want to share with your friends and family to minimize their exposure to harmful, cancer-causing radiation.

Other wireless devices also put out high levels of Radiation which you can measure for yourself:

  • Baby Monitors – who would have thought,
  • Cell Phone Towers,
  • Microwave Towers,
  • TV & Radio Towers,
  • Antennas,
  • Consumer Wireless devices,

Which light bulb should I use?

Frequently I get asked which are the safest light bulb.

In short, the old style light bulbs are the best, but they are not always available.

A little history –  Thomas Edison invented the first feasible light bulb in the late 1800’s. That type of bulb was used for more than 100 years and called incandescent light bulbs.
In 2007, the U.S. Federal Government outlawed the future manufacture and importing of most of these bulbs.  They did this for energy savings.
“The U.S. Federal Government started phasing out incandescent light bulbs in 2012, starting with the 100-watt bulb, and then followed by the 75-watt,” explained Melissa Andresko, communications director for lighting-automation company Lutron.
As of January 1, 2014 most of the 60- and the 40-watt bulbs went away.

Now we have 3 choices of light bulbs:

Bulb

LED & CFL Bulbs

1 – CFL’s – Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs – Worst
2 – LED’s – That are Non-Dimmable – OK
3 – New Halogen Bulbs that screw into light sockets – Best

1 – CFL’s have a number of problems.
Most CFL’s create Wireless & WiFi radiation and Dirty Electricity.
CFL’s have mercury in them and have to be disposed as a hazard waste.
Mercury is very toxic. In fact, it is a neurotoxin, meaning that it harms the brain and nervous system. It is also linked to kidney and liver damage and possibly cancer. Children are especially at risk because their brains and bodies are still developing. Many health effects of mercury can be permanent.
Dentists must also take care to manage their mercury-containing dental waste. Dental offices in Washington State are required to use and maintain a dental amalgam separator.
Washington State has recently added a surcharge of $1.00 for a package of 4 bulbs to cover the cost of disposing this hazard waste.
CFL’s contain so much mercury that the EPA and state environment officials consider them to be a hazard if they break.
They cannot be placed in landfills because thousands of decaying or broken bulbs would cause noticeable mercury contamination.

CFL’s are not allowed to be thrown normal trash.

** Below are the clean-up instructions from the U.S. EPA. **

2 – LED’s tend to be better.   Always buy the Non-Dimmable.
I would recommend that you buy a Dirty Electricity Meter to measure any LED’s you have.
If you don’t have a Dirty Electricity Meter to test the LED’s, purchase NON-Dimmable LED’s.
There are some NON-Dimmable LED’s, though, that still create Dirty Electricity.
ALL Dimmable LED’s will create Dirty Electricity.

3 – New Halogen Bulbs that screw into light sockets.
These new Halogen Bulbs save electricity.
They generate NO Electromagnetic Radiation.
Best option.

4 – ** If you break a CFL bulb in your home, the following are the clean-up instructions from the U.S. EPA:

Before CleanupBulb
1. Have people and pets leave the room, and avoid the breakage area on the way out.
2. Open a window or door to the outdoors and leave the room for 5-10 minutes.
3. Shut off the central forced-air heating/air conditioning (HVAC) system, if you have one.
4. Collect materials you will need to clean up the broken bulb:
o Stiff paper or cardboard
o Sticky tape (e.g., duct tape)
o Damp paper towels or disposable wet wipes (for hard surfaces)
o Glass jar with a metal lid (such as a canning jar) or a sealable plastic bag(s)
________________________________________
Cleanup Steps for Hard Surfaces
1. Carefully scoop up glass fragments and powder using stiff paper or cardboard and place debris and paper/cardboard in a glass jar with a metal lid. If a glass jar is not available, use a sealable plastic bag.
NOTE: Since a plastic bag will not prevent the mercury vapor from escaping, remove the plastic bag(s) from the home after cleanup.
2. Use sticky tape, such as duct tape, to pick up any remaining small glass fragments and powder. Place the used tape in the glass jar or plastic bag.
3. Wipe the area clean with damp paper towels or disposable wet wipes. Place the towels in the glass jar or plastic bag.
4. Vacuuming of hard surfaces during cleanup is not recommended unless broken glass remains after all other cleanup steps have been taken. [NOTE: It is possible that vacuuming could spread mercury-containing powder or mercury vapor, although available information on this problem is limited.] If vacuuming is needed to ensure removal of all broken glass, keep the following tips in mind:
o Keep a window or door to the outdoors open;
o Vacuum the area where the bulb was broken using the vacuum hose, if available; and
o Remove the vacuum bag (or empty and wipe the canister) and seal the bag/vacuum debris, and any materials used to clean the vacuum, in a plastic bag.
5. Promptly place all bulb debris and cleanup materials, including vacuum cleaner bags, outdoors in a trash container or protected area until materials can be disposed of. Avoid leaving any bulb fragments or cleanup materials indoors.
6. Next, check with your local government about disposal requirements in your area, because some localities require fluorescent bulbs (broken or unbroken) be taken to a local recycling center. If there is no such requirement in your area, you can dispose of the materials with your household trash.
7. Wash your hands with soap and water after disposing of the jars or plastic bags containing bulb debris and cleanup materials.
8. Continue to air out the room where the bulb was broken and leave the HVAC system shut off, as practical, for several hours.
If you have further questions, please call your local poison control center at 1-800-222-1222.

If you have further questions, please call your local poison control center at 1-800-222-1222.
________________________________________
Future Cleaning of Carpeting or Rugs: Air Out the Room During and After Vacuuming
1. The next several times you vacuum the rug or carpet, shut off the Heating & Air Conditioning system if you have one, close the doors to other rooms, and open a window or door to the outside before vacuuming. Change the vacuum bag after each use in this area.
2. After vacuuming is completed, keep the Heating & Air Conditioning system shut off and the window or door to the outside open, as practical, for several hours.
If you have further questions, please call your local poison control center at 1-800-222-1222.

Are Smart Meters really SMART ?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Electric Utility “Smart” Meter

The award-winning documentary Take Back Your Power examines evidence of health & environmental issues, in-home privacy invasions, systemic over-billing, fires and hacking vulnerability.  This documentary can be purchased at their web site.

Additionally, the EMF Safety network writes that all around the world people are reporting WiFi / Wireless radiation is affecting their health. The EMF Safety network has collected many smart meter health complaints. Utilities claim smart meters are safe, and compare them to cell phones. However cell phones, cell towers, WiFi and other wireless devices can also affect your health.   Reducing your Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) exposure can benefit your overall health and wellness.

In Lyon, France on May 31, 2011 ‐‐ The WHO/International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (WiFi / Wireless Radiation) as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B), based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer

Many homeowners are unaware that Smart Meters were installed in most homes, businesses, and schools throughout the U.S.

These devices produce high levels of WiFi / Wireless Radiation and Dirty Electricity.

If you want to measure WiFi / Wireless / RF radiation on your own, I have found that this meter is the easiest to use:

https://stopdirtyelectricity.com/wirelessrf/

To measure Dirty Electricity, this meter is very easy to use as well:

https://stopdirtyelectricity.com/dirty-electricity-meter/

In some areas customers have the option of putting the old analog meter back on homes, businesses, and schools. Putting back the previous meter is normally called the “Opt-Out” program.  Consider yourself fortunate if you do have this choice.

You will have to call your local Electrical Utility Company to find out if this is available to you.

Laptop Safety

More about Laptop Electromagnetic Radiation – EMR

If you have not read Part 1 of this blog, please read Part 1 before looking at Part 2 of the article from EM Watch from south England on Computer radiation.

Here are some more great tips to minimize your Electromagnetic Radiation exposure.

.
If you have a laptop close to you on the desk, your torso and head can be exposed to high levels of Electromagnetic Radiation and so can the upper part of your legs because Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) travel down through your desk.
So, if you work with a laptop on your desk, push it forward (away from you) as far as you can while remaining comfortable. Always use a laptop in the battery mode. When a laptop is plugged in, high Electromagnetic Radiation can be generated.
Except when travelling, try not to rest hands on a laptop keyboard or use the built-in touchpad. A better solution is to plug in an external USB keyboard and USB mouse. These generate no Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR), provided they are wired.
When a laptop is pushed forward on a desk and the external keyboard is between you and the laptop, the tips of the fingers are still only a few inches from the laptop and are exposed to Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) while resting them on the laptop keyboard.
Many people work with their laptop actually on their laps, in trains, planes or just at home. This is the way to get a huge Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) exposure, especially to the reproductive organs. Other cells may also be damaged as well as reproductive cells.
What is true for laptops applies equally to iPads, tablets, Kindles, smart phones, notebooks, and any type of a portable computing device. They all generate WiFi / wireless / RF radiation, unless
1. Bluetooth and WiFi are turned OFF and
2. Airplane mode is turned ON.

.Wi-Fi zone

WiFi / Wireless / RF Radiation

.
This is becoming more and more of an issue for computer users, as WiFi and wireless networks are everywhere. Computers can be connected to networks with wires. Not as “cool” as wireless connections and not as convenient; but smarter than introducing a known carcinogen into your home.
Almost everyone now has WiFi / Wireless network in their home. They would be wise at least to switch off a WiFi and a wireless network before going to bed every night. If that is too hard to remember, I have installed a $4 timer that turns the WiFi and a wireless network off when people go to bed and turns it on when they wake up. You can find these timers at any hardware store; then at least they would have eight hours a day free from Electromagnetic Radiation. Their body can use that time to repair some of the damage!
If you decide not to use WiFi or Wireless, you still have to actually disable WiFi / Wireless capability on each device that offers the option:
your computers,
printers,
routers, and
anything which communicates with them.

Router with cable wires, IT industry internet router with cable wires

WiFi / Wireless Router

Sometimes you press a switch or a key to disable wireless or sometimes you have to change software settings. If you have a WiFi / Wireless / RF meter, use it to check to see what that equipment is really generating. I like this household meter very much – https://stopdirtyelectricity.com/wirelessrf/

Other Computer Equipment

.
External hard drives generate as much Electromagnetic Radiation as those inside a computer.
Speakers – some of the woofers generate a powerful EMR.

Most newer headphones & headsets are wireless which generate WiFI / Wireless / RF radiation.
Uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) produce some of the largest EMFs found in the office.

 

Printers – generate all four types of Electromagnetic Radiation:
1. Electric Radiation
2. Magnetic Radiation
3. WiFi / Wireless / RF Radiation
4. Dirty Electricity
Turn printers OFF when not printing.
Routers, modems and network hubs and switches – if used wirelessly will produce a powerful Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) which extends for many feet.
External power supplies and chargers for all of the above (and also for anything else) produce Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR)
If you choose to use wireless in your home, you will also benefit from having a WiFi / Wireless / RF meter to measure your exposure.

https://stopdirtyelectricity.com/wirelessrf/
You might even change your mind about going wireless! Even if you don’t use wireless devices at home, you may still want to check for WiFi / Wireless from outside sources.

Is Computer Radiation Damaging your Health? Part1

Computer Radiation

Computer Radiation

EM Watch from south England had a very interesting article on Computer radiation.
If you use computers at work or at home, or both, then computers could be your biggest source of Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR). Could this radiation threaten your health?

.

.
Computers today can generate up to four types of Electromagnetic Radiation:

1  Electric Radiation
2. Magnetic Radiation
3. WiFi / Wireless / RF Radiation
4. Dirty Electricity

.
All types of radiation are potentially harmful – even the World Health Organization now calls them possible carcinogens (i.e. they may cause cancer).
In fact, this radiation has been linked with many serious diseases:
• Asthma
• Alzheimer’s
• Cancer
• Depression
• Heart Disease
• Hormone imbalances
• Damage to nerves, immune system and reproductive systems.

274672

Headaches

Symptoms of Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) Exposure
Symptoms of frequent and prolonged Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) exposure are often dismissed as being caused by stress, overwork, or just getting older. These include
• Headaches
• Tiredness
• Sleep disturbances
• Concentration and memory disorders
• Dizziness
• Skin prickling, itching, burning or flushing sensations on the face or elsewhere
• Uncomfortable, dry or swollen mucous membranes in the throat, ears or sinuses
• Muscle and joint pains
• Even some heart palpitations

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS)
Noticing symptoms related to Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) exposure can be a sign that a person is developing a condition known as Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS).
With EHS, when an afflicted person is exposed to certain types of Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR), they often experience symptoms — usually one or more of those in the list above.
This can be a real problem for these people because they may experience pain and discomfort at very much lower levels of radiation than those normally considered “safe.” In severe cases, they may have to avoid any and all Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) – a serious handicap in today’s world.
EHS is quite common. At least 3% of the population may be affected, and that percentage is apparently increasing quite rapidly. It is generally thought to be caused by over-exposure to EMR,
1. either a massive single exposure, or
2. More often a cumulative exposure over a long period.
Computer usage is frequently implicated in this process, especially when WiFi / Wireless communications are used.  Fortunately, computer users may be able to reduce their EMR exposure by following some simple, easy-to-do guidelines and suggestions:
10 things you can do NOW to minimize radiation in your home.
https://stopdirtyelectricity.com

Even a TV show on the AMC Network – “Better Call Saul” – deals with a person with an extreme case of Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity. Even though the person has an extreme case of Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity, we are all affected in some way or another.

.
How to avoid Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) exposure from computer usage

modern technology in home, indoor

To minimize the amount of radiation you absorb and the risk to your health:
1. Don’t get too close to Electromagnetic Radiation sources.
2. Use as little as possible WiFi / Wireless / RF with your computer and network equipment.
All the advice in this article boils down to one or both of these two suggestions.

.
Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) Basics
Many people feel so overwhelmed by this issue of Electromagnetic Radiation that they just give up on it. They think that it really is not possible to live in the modern world without being exposed to radiation from one source or another, all day long.  But with a little knowledge, it is possible.  Any source of EMR creates a field of energy around it, called the electromagnetic field, or EMF.  This field is strongest right at the source and gets progressively weaker the further away you are from the source — like heat from a fire.  WiFi / Wireless / RF radiation gets weaker very slowly (which is why it is used for communications) so the EMF extends for a greater distance. It is usually not practical just to get further away from WiFi / Wireless / RF radiation – EMR sources. That is why we recommend wired alternatives, not wireless.

.
Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) from your Computer Screen

There are several sources of Electromagnetic Radiation in a typical computer. Most of them are inside the computer, but the screen (monitor) also radiates this kind of energy.  Modern flat computer screens (LCD or LED) generally produce far less EMR than the old-fashioned CRT’s (cathode ray tube) screens did, and also less than the older flat screens.  But move even flat screens as far away as possible.
If you have an Electric radiation & Magnetic radiation meter you can determine your own safe viewing distances.  I recommend the ME3030B for Electric Radiation and Magnetic Radiation.
https://stopdirtyelectricity.com/magnetic-electric-meter/

.
Low-frequency EMR sources inside your computer
The Electromagnetic Radiation inside your computer is the WiFi, power supply, and the disc drive motors. The WiFi is being generated 24 hours a day – unless you turn it off and hard wire your desktop PC. The power supply generates constant EMR. The disc drive only generates EMR when it is busy reading or writing data, which is pretty much all the time if you are using your computer.  Right at this source, the Electromagnetic Radiation might be very strong.  So if a part of your body is near or in direct contact with the computer or your laptop, that part of your body could be exposed to a very high Radiation.  When working with a desktop computer, keep the computer case on the floor, not on your desk.  And position it as far away from you as the cables will stretch. Of course you can’t do that with a laptop.

Stay tuned for Part 2…..

Microwave Ovens – Are they Hurting your Family?

Microwave Ovens – Are they Hurting your Family?

Detail of female hand while using the microwave

Microwave Oven Dangers

The Powerwatch organization from the UK has a lot to say about microwave ovens. Powerwatch’s mission is to help secure for the general public as safe an Electromagnetic environment as possible. A curious fact about microwave ovens, Powerwatch noted that after some 20 years of research into their use, the old Soviet Union banned the use of microwave ovens for heating food in 1976. The old Soviet Union decided that the dangers of a microwave oven outweighed the benefit of its speed in cooking food or heating water. But they were allowed again in 1987 under Perestroika by Gorbachev to be more like Western nations.
Specifically the Microwave oven cables and motor give off high Electromagnetic Radiation. Microwave radiation leaks from the seal around the door and through the glass of microwave ovens. The water molecules in the body are agitated to some degree by the microwave radiation. Powerwatch states that eyes are particularly vulnerable, as they contain large amounts of fluid and a lower blood supply to take away any heat. This is important with regard to children whose height and curiosity could lead to them watching the changes induced in microwave cooking from too close a distance. Even when a microwave oven is working correctly, the microwave levels within the kitchen are likely to be significantly higher than those from any nearby cell phone tower. The radiation created by microwave ovens will also travel through interior walls inside the home.

 Microwaves Can Change Your Heart Rate

health, medicine and charity concept - closeup of female hands holding red heart with ecg line

Heart Rates can be affected by Microwave ovens

Microwaves can produce effects on your body instantly due to the 2.4 GHz radiation — the frequency of radiation emitted by microwave ovens. A study conducted by Dr. Magda Havas of Trent University found the levels of radiation emitted by a microwave oven can affect both heart rate and heart rate variability. Dr. Magda Havas suggests that if you experience irregular heart beat or any chest pain and regularly use a microwave oven, it might be best to discontinue use of the microwave oven to see if the microwave oven is affecting you.

Microwave Oven Radiation Leakage 

You would think, with all these tests and regulations, that you’d be safe. However, again according to Powerwatch, a non-profit independent organization with a central role in the microwave radiation debate:
“We don’t really know if the current regulations about leakage are truly safe and recommends ovens be checked at least annually, since microwave oven emissions can change with normal use.”
Dr. Mercola states that it would certainly be wise to avoid letting your children near the microwave when it’s running, and avoid it yourself as much as possible—especially if you’re pregnant. Also, since your eyes are known to be particularly susceptible to microwave radiation (high microwave exposures are known to cause cataracts).

Other Related Issues 

Although the information below is not related directly to Electromagnetic Radiation exposure to humans, I came across an interesting article by Richard Stossel. He stated that in an experiment, conducted at home for a high school science fair, the experiment has verified the dangers of microwaved water to plants and other organic matter. Specifically in the home experiment, filtered water was divided into two parts. One part would be microwaved and allowed to cool before being given to the plant, while the second part would be heated on a conventional stove and given to an identical plant. Results were observed over a nine day period. By the third day it was already clear that the plant given the microwaved water was not faring as well as its counterpart.
By the ninth day the microwaved plant was virtually nonexistent in its pot, having literally shrunk in size to just a few inches above the soil. The second plant was growing beautifully.

Blog 11-7-2015 Mircrowave Oven Plants 1

As this experiment clearly shows, microwaving your food, even if you are just reheating your tea, is definitely not a good idea. Our microwaved plant would agree if it could talk.
Additionally, Powerwatch along this same line, noted that the anthroposophist, A. Bohmert, reported the following effect that microwave heating had on water, a common component of all food products. Water samples were heated, some in a microwave oven and others conventionally, and then left to cool before use. These water samples were used to bring grain to germination. The grain in contact with microwaved water was the only one that did not germinate.

In Conclusion

1 – Since radiation from microwave ovens can pass through walls and if microwave ovens are placed against an adjacent wall, those on the other side will be exposed to high levels of radiation.
2 – Microwave oven emissions can change with normal use; so microwave ovens should be checked regularly, preferably at least annually, to pick up any microwave radiation leakage from the seals.
3 – All of the microwave ovens I have measured have unsafe Electromagnetic Radiation levels

•  always extending into one room,
•  most often into two rooms away and
•  quite often extending into three rooms away.

To measure these levels I would recommend a great meter to use, it is one of my favorites – the Acousticom 2 – WiFi / Wireless / RF meter.

acousticom2This meter is very simple to use, about the size of a deck of cards, with Green, Amber, Yellow, and Red LED lights – indicating increasingly harmful levels of WiFi / Wireless / RF radiation from microwave ovens. https://stopdirtyelectricity.com/wirelessrf/

This meter will also work on any device that is generating WiFi / Wireless / RF radiation in your home – such as a Smart TV, Baby Monitors, Cordless Phones, WiFi Routers, etc. It will also pick-up sources outside your home that are bleeding into your environment like cell towers, wireless routers from neighbors, Smart electrical meters – just to name a few. Check out this link for even more sources of WiFi / Wireless / RF radiation.

I have also produced a series of videos that will guide you through every room and each device in your home. The videos also covers harmful WiFI / Wireless devices outside of your home – how to measure them and what to do if high levels of radiation exist. https://stopdirtyelectricity.net/package-3-details-2/

First US Public School District Limits WiFi Radiation Exposure

First US Public School District Limits WiFi Radiation Exposure

Wi-Fi zoneI came across this article recently dealing with the limiting of WiFi Radiation in the First Public School District in the U.S. I found it on the Environmental Health Trust web site http://ehtrust.org/.  According to Environmental Health Trust, Ashland, Massachusetts Public Schools have implemented WiFi Device “Best Practices” which include turning the WiFi off when not in use and keeping devices on a table.
Based on its own review of the matter, the Ashland Public School District is reducing wireless radiation exposures to children by instituting district wide “best practices for mobile devices”. Prompted by parent Cecelia Doucette’s concerns about the lack of safety data on WiFi and children, the district investigated the issue and developed a policy to substantially reduce wireless exposures to students and staff. Doucette not only brought the issue to the district’s attention, but then also worked with state legislatures who introduced two bills concerning electromagnetic radiation this session.
Since wireless devices are constantly emitting radiation even when the user is not using the Internet, the instruction to “turn it off when not in use ” stops the WiFi antennas from continuously emitting radiation and is one simple way to reduce the radiation dose and exposure time for children and staff.

The Ashland School district posted instructions for “Best Practices” in every classroom and include:

– Turn off the device when not in use
– Turn WiFi on only when needed
– Always place the mobile device on a solid surface – instead of your lap
– Viewing distance should be a minimum of 12 inches from the screen
– Specific product information guides are available through the IT department
– We ask that staff members regularly remind and instruct students in using best practices in regards to mobile devices

Keep laptop 12 inches away

Ashland’s Best Practice of “keeping the device on a table” and no closer than a 12 inch viewing distance is critically important. Laptops and tablets have fine print warnings buried in their manuals specifically stating that the laptop should be at least 8 inches away from the user so that the user is not exposed to radiation levels that exceed as-tested FCC levels. If a device is used on a lap, as is common practice, the student could receive radiation levels far exceeding FCC limits. FCC limits are set to prevent the radiation from heating the brain and body but are not set to avoid chronic impacts on the developing nervous system or reproductive organs.

Many are unaware of FCC fine print advisories in the manuals of every wireless device confirming as-tested distances set to avoid heating. Cell phones, laptops and even baby monitors have these specific instructions in their product information guides. By referring to the product information guides, Ashland Public Schools are informing people about the need to keep a distance between the device and our bodies. As a public service, Environmental Health Trust (EHT) has compiled these fine print warnings on their website http://www.showthefineprint.org/.

It is important to note that even if users comply with these FCC recommended distances as stated in the device manual, accumulating research shows that biological damage can occur from wireless radiation levels far lower than these FCC levels. FCC limits are only set to protect people from heating harm and do not address non-thermal effects.

This ground breaking policy action by the Massachusetts school district is indicative of the wave of parents raising concerns about WiFi across the country. Ashland, Massachusetts parent Cecelia Doucette wrote an article in Ashland Local Town Pages about these new best practices. News and print media have picked the issue up after Massachusetts parents filed a lawsuit against a private boarding school alleging the school did not accommodate their 12-year-old child’s diagnosed debilitating sensitivity to the school’s WiFi system.

Ashland is the first US public school to create such policy on wireless transmitting devices. However, this US Massachusetts school district now joins dozens of schools and governments that have already implemented even more stringent measures to reduce wireless exposure to children. For example, Israel and France have banned WiFi in kindergarten. The European Union recommends wired Internet rather than wireless in schools.

“Right To Know” efforts by local governments are also moving across the United States. A judge just upheld Berkeley’s new “Cell Phone Right To Know” Ordinance which requires cell phone sellers to tell customers about these FCC radio frequency radiation distances.

Suffolk County in New York voted to label wireless routers in all public buildings including schools. The US United Federation of Teachers Union now hosts a webpage on how to reduce exposures to protect pregnant women, other staff members and students.

I would go even farther. With a cell phone, iPad, Tablet or Kindle, when reading make sure the Airplane mode is ON and WiFi & Bluetooth are OFF. Note: you won’t be able to receive any voice, text or data in this mode – but if you are reading you probably don’t want to be disturbed.

I would also recommend a survey of your home and office with a meter to make sure cordless phones or WiFi printers (just to name a couple) are not polluting your environment. The Acousticom 2 is a great meter to do this with.  https://stopdirtyelectricity.com/wirelessrf/

Bluetooth – Safe or Insane

Bluetooth – Safe or Insane

We often get asked the question, “What about Bluetooth devices?”

There can be a lot of problems with Bluetooth.

I found a great article that discusses the issues.  It is written by Kshitij Shah.  He starts by saying that Bluetooth Headsets and Technologies emit WiFi / Wireless (microwave) radiation. WiFi / Wireless radiation can travel long distances carrying information without needing to be contained in a wire.

WiFi & Wireless radiation can penetrate living tissue down to a cellular level. This characteristic is what led Soviet Russia to utilize microwave frequencies for weapons.

WiFi / Wireless (Microwave) Radiation Exposure Dangers from Bluetooth:

Using any type of WiFi / Wireless technology is subjecting you to Electromagnetic Radiation. The effects of long term WiFi / Wireless (microwave) radiation exposure upon the body have been documented in countless studies for decades.  The updated BioInitiative Report of 2012 list over 3,900 scientific, peer-reviewed articles. They state the health effects of long-term exposure to Electromagnetic Radiation.  Some of the health effects are:

  • headaches
  • cancer
  • leukemia
  • brain tumors
  • alzheimers
  • autism
  • ADHD
  • miscarriages
  • birth defects
  • autoimmune illnesses
  • multiple sclerosis
  • hair loss
  • suicide

WiFi / Wireless (microwave) radiation (yes, Bluetooth falls into this type of radiation) has been shown to affect biological changes within the body. These biological changes happen on a cellular level and their effects can be passed on to offspring via genetic damage (DNA, RNA).

Health Effects due to Bluetooth

Using a Bluetooth headset exposes the brain, the ears and the eyes to a strong field of WiFi / Wireless (microwave) radiation.

Studies have linked Bluetooth Headset use to:
• blindness
• deafness
• brain tumors
• neck pain
• skin rashes
• headaches

How Bluetooth Radiation Is Classified:

First a little reminder on the classification system for Bluetooth, because this is critical to minimizing your exposure to Bluetooth radiation – if you still chose to use Bluetooth:
Class 1 transmitters — are the most powerful and emit the highest level of radiation. They can transmit up to 100 meters or over 325 feet.

Class 2 transmitters — are less powerful.  They can transmit up to 10 meters or over 30 feet.

Class 3 transmitters — are the least powerful and emit the lowest level of Bluetooth radiation. They operate in a range of less than 10 meters or about 30 feet.

.
Could Bluetooth Radiation Be Even More Dangerous Than Cell Phone Radiation?

Absolutely.   Your radiation exposure with a Bluetooth headset is additive – the sum of cell phone radiation (on your belt or in your pocket) plus the Bluetooth radiation. When you use a Bluetooth earpiece you are always exposing yourself to both Bluetooth radiation and cell phone radiation, a double whammy!  Bluetooth radiation is particularly dangerous because earpieces and headphones are located next to your brain, eyes and ears.

IS  THERE  AN  ALTERNATIVE  TO  USING A  BLUETOOTH  HEADSET?

Yes, there is an alternative that is much safer.

You can use a radiation free airtube headset. These work much like a wired headset but there are no wires to conduct the radiation. Air tubes use sound only through a tube. Obviously you don’t get the freedom of movement that you get with a wireless connection, but the sound quality on this particular model is excellent while reducing your exposure to EMR (Electromagnetic Radiation).

 

CONCLUSION – HOW TO MINIMIZE  BLUETOOTH  RADIATION

Bluetooth Watch

Do not use a Bluetooth earpiece in a vehicle because the effect with the Bluetooth radiation is similar to cell phone radiation where the radiation is trapped by the metal within the car and continues to bounce around until you absorb it!

People should realize that Bluetooth devices that fit in or around the ear typically radiate 10 to 100 times higher than the Electromagnetic Radiation exposure levels shown to make the blood-brain barrier pathologically leaky. This allows toxins and toxic molecules to cross the blood-brain barrier and enter your brain.

This is reported by Salford, Persson, NIttby and Schirmacher among others – to cause neuron death.

Multiple studies have reported that as short as a single, two-hour exposure to cell phone or Bluetooth radiation will result in pathological leakage of the blood-brain barrier. The effect occurs immediately, and is still seen at 14 days and at 50 days after the exposure. Bluetooth devices are worn for hours at a time, in some cases – all day long. So, it is reasonable to conclude that a Bluetooth device that can radiate at a higher intensity than some cell phones are very risky in terms of your accumulated exposures. Again, since Bluetooth radiation may be equally as dangerous as cell phone radiation but when you use a Bluetooth earpiece you are always exposing yourself to both Bluetooth radiation and cell phone radiation since both devices must be turned on (emitting radiation) and your phone is very close to you. You are getting a double dose of radiation!

Bluetooth Fitness Device

 I personally recommend that you don’t use a Bluetooth personal device like an earpiece, a fitness device or a Bluetooth watch.  If you still want to use a Bluetooth device, I would limit your use to only when it is absolutely necessary.  The only way to know your exposure level is to measure it with a WiFi / Wireless meter.  I like the Acousticom 2 WiFi / Wireless meter:

I think it will be eye-opening to see how much radiation you are being exposed to.

Do It Yourself

Do It Yourself

We often get the questions:

Himageow hard is this?

Can anyone do this?

What background do I need?

We have taken all of the scientific research and techniques and have boiled them all down into an exclusive, one-of-a-kind, and easy-to-use program that anyone can use to reduce the Electromagnetic Radiation exposure of their family, children, and even their pets.

According to The Cadwallader Protocol, the proprietary solution only available on StopDirtyElectricity.com,

https://stopdirtyelectricity.com/cadwallader-protocol/

you will measure all 4 sources of Electromagnetic Radiation:

  1. Magnetic Radiation
  2. Electric Radiation
  3. Wireless / WiFi Radiation (also called RF or Microwave Radiation)
  4. Dirty Electricity

We have taken great lengths to research the current meters available to determine the easiest meters to use at the best price.

We have also put together over 45 videos which are used in conjunction with The Cadwallader Protocol. These videos are mostly 2 to 4 minutes in length.  The first video in each module will show you how to use each meter.  The following videos will then show you how to measure every room in your home with that meter. We also have videos that show hazards  outside your home that may be bleeding into your home.  We have put the videos on-line in an exclusive Membership Logon on

https://stopdirtyelectricity.com/

Any device:

  • iPhone or Cell Phone,
  • iPad or Tablet or
  • Kindle

can access the videos from the room you are currently in.

 

User-Friendly Green Road Sign, Business Concept

As part of The Cadwallader Protocol, we have also included an Audit Report. This Audit Report has been developed after surveying all of the available techniques for measuring Electromagnetic Radiation. It lists all of the rooms and items in each room that could cause an issue.  We wanted make sure you did not miss any items.

These video modules cover:

  • Each room in the home
  • Items in a home that could be in any room,
  • Home Office and Personal Electronic Devices, and
  • Items outside your home that could cause issues.

Most importantly, we have listed the most up-to-date Safety Values for each type of Electromagnetic Radiation:

  1. Magnetic Radiation
  2. Electric Radiation
  3. Wireless / WiFi Radiation (also called RF or Microwave Radiation)
  4. Dirty Electricity

With these Safety Values you can then reduce the Electromagnetic Radiation to be within the Safety Values.

There are very easy ways you can reduce Electromagnetic Radiation in each and every video.

Very important, if you don’t have the meters we have suggested, please send an email to:

Support@StopDirtyElectricity.com

so we can provide the Safety Values for your meters.  Meters measure in different units, so it is imperative that you have the correct Safety Values for the meters you are using.

Why not start today in reducing your Electromagnetic Radiation exposure of your family, children, and pets.
