Problems of Technology
Protects against Electromagnetic
Until the 1900's organic
life on earth had been exposed only to the natural occurring electromagnetic
field. This subtle electromagnetic field is within the low frequency
range of 7.8 Hz, Schuman frequency. However, today's modern technology
has dramatically changed the earth's environment; introducing new high
frequency electromagnetic fields such as electric appliances, radio, microwave,
cell phones, etc.
Electromagnetic radiation (EMR) is emitted by all operating electrical
and electronic devices. The power of EMR emission varies depending
upon the size, electrical strength, and current each device carries.
High voltage power lines are significant emitters or EMR; their field
strengths are high enough to potentially cause adverse effects in humans,
animals and plants even from a distance of hundreds of feet. Smaller
devices such as computers, televisions, cellular phones, microwaves, etc.,
emit lesser quantities of EMR, but the effect on humans can still be significant
because of there closer proximity.
While there is some controversy over various studies to prove the health
effects on humans; there is no doubt that EMR fields do surround power
lines and common electrical and electronic devices. Prudent people
will want to protect themselves, their family, pet and plants against
these potential health risks from exposure to EMR over extended periods
of time. Conventional shielding commonly used for electrical shock
is not effective against the magnetic field component in EMR.
Adverse effects on human health
that have been attributed to long-term EMR exposure include the occurrence
of cancer, multiple sclerosis and autism. In animals the effects
include stillbirths, and reduction of milk production in cattle.
Studies at major universities such as University of Southern California,
the University of Lauganna, Switzerland, and the University of Warwick,
UK have proven the negative impact of electromagnetic radiation on living
organisms. Recent studies (Adelaide Hospital animal study, Dr. Lai
and Dr. Singh animal study at Washington University) proved that animal
exposure to high frequency oscillations disturbs cellular functions; creating
double strand breakage in DNA. This serious genetic alteration can
lead to cancer. As modern technology increased, so too will the
occurrences of severe diseases such as cancer, HIV, etc.
