Reducing EMR

A growing number of scientists, doctors, politicians and informed citizens are petitioning authorities for improved public education and safety standards relating to potential EMR health risks .But there is no need to wait for a meaningful response that may be years away. The precautionary measures on this page are presented for consideration by readers wishing to take immediate control of their energetic environment.

As Easy as 1, 2, 3

Due to their close proximity to the body, personal wireless devices are by far the most influential sources of EMR. A transmitting mobile phone subjects its user to upward of 500,000 times more radiation than the natural electromagnetic field of the planet within which we have evolved. Based upon a profile of typical exposure, here are three simple masures that can most significantly reduce the potential for adverse effects.

1. Hold your mobile phone as far away from your head as is practical; ideally at arm's length if it has a "speaker" mode. The same applies to cordless phones or any portable transmitting device. Even a 20-30cm distance can reduce bodily microwave absorption by up to ten times. If you are concerned about disturbing others, move away. Alternate holding the phone at each side of the head to balance exposure.


2. Use a hardwired "ethernet" cable (RJ45) connection between your computer and internet modem. Most so-called wireless modems still have the appropriate matching sockets. To defeat intermittent transmissions, remember to then disable the Wi-Fi functionality in both the computer and modem using their respective software interfaces, or buttons if provied. Generally, cable internet is faster, safer and more secure.

Intensity at 3 metres from source is 9 times less than a 1 metre.

3. Let the "inverse square law" work in your favour. Magnetic field intensity drops off exponentially with distance from its source. Maintain a prudent distance between yourself and any emitter of EMR. Remember that it penetrates most non-metallic walls, so exposure can originate from devices outside or in adjacent rooms. Note that this law does not apply equally to electrical fields which exhibit a linear drop-off.
