For most people, it is impossible to go even a day without coming into contact with electronic devices such as laptops, tablets and cell phones.
People rely on these technological tools for work, communication with friends and family, school, and distractions.
What most people don't seem to realize, however, is that all of these electronic devices are known to emit waves of electromagnetic radiation .
Even people who know that electromagnetic waves exist are often unaware that they have harmful effects on health .
But once you know all the damaging effects this type of radiation can have on your health, you start paying more attention to it.
Some people may try to convince you that the adverse health effects of electromagnetic radiation are simply a hoax made up by paranoid people. Unfortunately, research proves that this is not the case at all.
As research progresses, more and more solid evidence emerges.
They clearly indicate that electromagnetic radiation emitted by laptops, cell phones and other electronic devices can be harmful to our body.
The health risks of electromagnetic waves
Studies of electromagnetic waves have repeatedly shown genetic mutations and DNA fragmentation , which can cause cellular mutation and cancer.
Children are particularly exposed to electromagnetic waves because their bodies absorb more waves than that of an adult.
In fact, looking at these reports, we find that children absorb up to 60% more energy per pound of body weight than adults.
The current standard for maximum cell phone signal strength is known to penetrate an adult's head up to an inch. That same cell phone signal can completely pass through a child's head!
The effects of prolonged exposure to electromagnetic waves can be cumulative and extend over the lives of children.
This exposure is unprecedented and has not been experienced by previous generations.
The male and female reproductive systems are also threatened by exposure to electromagnetic waves.
In one study, Dr. Conrado Avendano and colleagues from Nascentis Medicina Reproductiva in Córdoba found that “using a laptop connected wirelessly to the Internet and placed near the male reproductive organs can decrease the quality of human sperm.”
Their study found that after a four-hour exposure, 25% of sperm were no longer active, compared to 14% of sperm samples stored at the same temperature for the same period and away from the computer.
They also noted that 9% of sperm showed DNA damage, three times the damage found in comparison samples.
Similarly, the Archives of Environmental & Occupational Health, an American medical journal, has reported that emissions of electromagnetic waves from laptop computers create health problems, particularly for women and their fetuses.
The study found that the Swedish EMF standards (an acronym for the English term ElectroMagnetic Field, used for measurements of electromagnetic fields concern the incidence of these waves on the human body) were exceeded by 71 to 483% by the laptops used in the study, which, according to the definition of the standard, increases the risk of developing tumors.
Health effects of electromagnetic radiation
What is electromagnetic radiation and SAR radiation?
Every home is filled to the brim with technology in today's society. This doesn't just include those we own since we all have neighbors, co-workers and other people. Having mentioned that, electromagnetic radiation or electromagnetic field comes from all the devices around us. These fields are generated by microwaves, power lines, Wi-Fi devices and, in this case, cell towers.
What changes does 5G technology bring?
Instead, we're talking about 5G, a technology that comes with faster wave and processing speeds, which therefore requires more bandwidth. The only problem with this particular theory is the fact that our current bandwidth (for 4G and 3G) is becoming saturated. From this point of view, we can therefore say that 5G technology was created to operate on the lesser-known high-frequency millimeter wave (MMW) bandwidth . The range of MMW is between 30GHz and 300GHz. Therein lies the problem with 5G airwaves, which is its lack of range.
High-frequency MMW is a type of wave that can only travel short distances at a time. Additionally, the MMW cannot pass through objects blocking its path, leading to signal levels that are too low. The solution found for this problem is to build smaller radio towers that will bridge the gap between the larger ones we see. This immediately resolves signal interference, but at the same time, it's a solution that carries a much higher risk of exposure to electromagnetic radiation than 4G or 3G ever did.
Side effects of DAS radiation
Reports from various scientists around the world already suggest that radiation from 4G mobile phone towers can cause health problems ( ANFR DAS report ). What more can we say about 5G technology, which requires even more cell towers to function properly. The result of 5G adoption is a spike in EMF radiation levels all around us. Certainly, this has its advantages, but the short and long term side effects , which we will list now, are always present.
Side effects include
- Memory loss
- Negatively modifies sleep structure
- Congenital disabilities
- Heart disease
- Brain tumors
- Electrical sensitivity
- Fatigue and dizziness
- Learning problems and lack of concentration
- Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
- Eye problems
- Oxidative damage (tissue deterioration and premature aging)
Effects on plants
A 2010 report shows that aspen seedling leaves showed symptoms of necrosis when exposed to RF radiation . Additionally, another study now suggests that low-level SAR causes cellular damage to wheat shoots. Combine these two reports; and the hidden meaning is that 5G can potentially contaminate our food.
Effects on ecosystems
Since SAR radiation has adverse effects on humans, other animals are not excluded from the list. Over the past two decades, there have been several reports from different health organizations on the effects of RF radiation on the health of birds and bees. The study indicates that low levels of non-ionizing microwave radiation can drive birds from their nests, cause locomotion problems, plume deterioration, reduced survival levels and, in some cases, even death. In bees, radiation causes problems with the egg-laying ability of queens, which in turn leads to a reduction in honey yield due to reduced colony size.
What are health organizations saying?
In addition to these side effects, here are research reports that warn of the dangers of RF radiation.
In 2011, the World Health Organization (WHO) classified SAR radiation as a possible carcinogen , which essentially means it can cause cancer.
Research conducted by the US National Toxicology Program tested the effects of SAR radiation by exposing it to male rats. The subjects were exposed to DAS radiation for nine hours a day for more than two years. The result for all rats was the appearance of tumors in the brain and heart.
At the Medical Research Institute of Kanazawa Medical University, a study was also conducted on rabbits (specifically their eyes). The study suggests that 60GHz millimeter wave antennas produce thermal damage to the eyes of rabbits.
In Germany, scientists studied 1,000 residents who lived near two cell towers for about a decade. According to the study, residents who lived within 400 meters of the two cell towers developed cancer after 5 years.
Another study also suggests that low-intensity OMM causes lens opacity, a lesser form of cataract, in the eyes of rats.
These reports support the fact that SAR radiation from 4G and weaker 3G technologies is dangerous to some extent. So, for the upcoming 5G technology and even the current generation, this post is designed to offer tips or methods, and gadgets, that can protect you from SAR radiation from cell towers.
What about radiation on children's health?
Although it may seem weird here, it is one of the most popular questions sent to us. That said, the answer is pretty easy to see. What characterizes average human maturity is that the body's ability to fight radicals and disease increases as maturity increases . In children, on the other hand, exposing them to RF radiation at a young age is a bad idea.
In one study, children exposed to RF radiation usually complained of the following:
- Lack of concentration
- Racing heart or irregular heartbeat
- Chest pain
With this type of side effects reported, it is easy to see that children are even more sensitive to SAR radiation than adults due to the case of maturity at play. It is therefore important that they are well separated from areas where the radiation concentration is high.
Short-term health effects of electromagnetic waves
- Tingling or burning sensations
- Aches and pains
- Decreased sperm motility
- Sleeping troubles
Long-term health effects of electromagnetic waves
- Brain tumors
- Mental illness
- Cognitive and behavioral disorders
- Immune disorders
- Cancers – blood, breast and more
- Mutated cells
- fragmented DNA
What solutions can be found to limit exposure to electromagnetic waves?
Technology plays a major role in most people's lives. While you can certainly try living without your mobile devices, it can be difficult. So what's a person to do?
Avoiding the effects of electromagnetic radiation is not exactly easy, because mobile devices that emit them are everywhere and practically unavoidable.
Well, there are a few different steps you can take to look after your health.
The good news is that you don't have to abandon your devices and there are plenty of ways to protect yourself.
You can also minimize potential negative health risks by using shielding that blocks electromagnetic radiation.
Not being aware of the harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation will not make you immune to it. Your best bet is to educate yourself and find ways to protect yourself.
This is where crystals can help protect you from the harmful effects of electromagnetic waves .
13 stones to protect yourself from electromagnetic waves
Because every body is different, there is no “best” crystal for blocking electromagnetic waves.
Some crystals have a much finer vibration than others and “intuitively” (letting your intuition guide your choice of crystal) choosing a crystal to work with might prove more effective than simply following a “list ” of recommended crystals.
To help you see more clearly, we have grouped below 13 stones well known for blocking electromagnetic waves.
Amazonite : Amazonite cleans the air through a filtering action. Place a piece near your computer or a small stone on the back of your cell phone
Aragonite : Brown aragonite has strong grounding and stabilizing energy. Work with Brown Aragonite to help provide calming, grounding energy and to reduce overall sensitivity to electromagnetic waves.
Aventurine : Aventurine absorbs electromagnetic interference and dissolves negative energy. Place a small piece on the back of your phone and crystals around your home to absorb the waves.
Black Tourmaline : Black tourmaline is a piezoelectric stone, meaning it generates its own weak electrical current. This current helps neutralize electromagnetic fog. Place pieces of black tourmaline around your home or use it as a center stone in a sacred geometric shape to protect against electromagnetic radiation.
Fluorite : The healing and cleansing energies of fluorite make it an excellent protective stone against electromagnetic radiation.
Hematite : The grounding frequency of hematites helps maintain the body's own energy levels. This, in turn, could help reduce stress related to electromagnetic waves. Very useful worn as a bracelet.
Iron Pyrite : Iron pyrite blocks negative energy and pollutants at all levels. Use pyrite to create a strong energy shield against electromagnetic waves.
Jasper : Jasper helps evacuate toxins from the body and harmonizes energies. Use jasper to help negate the harmful effects of electromagnetic waves by carrying a piece in your pocket.
Obsidian : Obsidian can be extremely effective in absorbing environmental pollution. Use the stone in energy networks with quartz and tourmaline to provide additional protection against electromagnetic radiation.
Orgonite : Orgonite can be made up of many different types of crystals. Use it to protect yourself from harmful electromagnetic wave radiation by placing an orgonite pyramid near your workspace and bed or by wearing a pendant.
White Quartz : Because rock crystal is composed of silica, it is particularly effective in removing fog from electromagnetic waves. Quartz is also a piezoelectric stone. Place the quartz between you and the transmitting device for maximum protection.
Shungite : Shungite is undoubtedly the most well-known stone and renowned for its wave-blocking ability. Placed in an orgonite, it proves to be an excellent filter against electromagnetic smog.
Smoky Quartz : Smoky Quartz is known to be a protection against bad vibes. This crystal helps release stress by promoting grounding.
How to use crystals to block electromagnetic waves
Stones that block electromagnetic waves can be used in different ways, depending on what suits you best.
A simple way to benefit from the qualities of certain crystals is to simply carry them in your pocket. You may also like to wear a stone as an amulet or in the form of a ring.
You can also place blocking crystals around your home, focusing on areas where electromagnetic radiation is likely to be highest, i.e. your work or office space and around the router Wireless.
Another good tip is to place electromagnetic wave blocking crystals in all four corners of your bed to protect you from radiation throughout the night.
You can also attach a piece of tourmaline directly to the electromagnetic wave emitting device.
For example, stick a crystal to the back of your mobile phone, laptop or to the base of your cordless phone hub.
Anti-electromagnetic wave crystals in sacred geometric shapes
Because crystals are most effective when placed in sacred geometric shapes like grids, you may want to consider a crystal arrangement to block electromagnetic wave pollution.
Place the crystals to block electromagnetic waves coming from the outside
Placing crystals outside your house allows you to block the radiation of electromagnetic waves coming from outside (high voltage lines, antenna, etc.).
Note: If you intend to leave the stones outdoors for an extended period of time or if you plan to bury the stones, it is to be expected that some stones will dissolve or break.
To create an exterior grid, decide where you want to place the stones by dowsing or simply by selecting the four corners around the perimeter of your home.
Clean your stones and express your intention. For example “I am protected from all negative influences”.
Place or bury the stones in their designated positions. Be sure to leave a mark if you bury the stones so that they can be periodically dug up and cleaned.
Grid with electromagnetic wave blocking crystals
Using crystal grids can make your crystals even more powerful.
Crystals placed in a simple grid pattern around your home can create an energetic energy field that could help purify and heal your own energies.
Before placing crystals, it is helpful to do a short meditation to ensure that your own energies are at their optimum.
Keep your thoughts calm and focused while placing the grid and try to bring only positive energy to the task.
The simplest grid shape to use is the square. To work with a square grid, for example around your bed, simply place a suitable crystal in each of the four corners of the bed and join the points of the crystals, imagining a flow of energy connecting them.
A triangular grid also works great for the bedroom. You will need three activated and cleansed crystals. Place one crystal at the head of your bed and the other two under your feet or in the corners of the bedroom.
Again, connect the crystals by imagining a flow of energy creating a grid between them.
Another crystal grid pattern to try is a zig-zag pattern. For this you will need 8 or more cleansed and activated crystals.
This pattern is a powerful energy amplifier and you may want to alternate high vibrational crystals such as selenite with cleansing stones such as amazonite.
Arrange the stones so that the crystals touch the walls on either side of the room you are working in.
Again, connect the grid by visualizing a powerful flow of energy flowing between the crystals.
