Electric and magnetic fields (EMF) are around us all of the time. They are invisible but can be dangerous. Research shows that after about one and half years, cells will show physiological stress from exposure to EMF radiation. There are many things you can do to protect yourself and your family. You can visit your local EMF safety store and get a number of products such as EMF protection jewelry or EMF protection necklaces. There are some other things you can do to make your home safer for you and your family.
Find out how much exposure you have in your home by using an EMF meter.
A number of people do not believe there is any problem with EMF radiation in their home until they are confronted with the amount of exposure they are getting every day. One way to see how much you are getting is to head to the EMF safety store and get an EMF meter. Once you bring that home, you can walk around your house and see what appliances are putting out the most EMF.
One other thing you should do is check the EMF emissions while appliances are turned on, turned off and unplugged. People are often surprised by how much cordless phone radiation they detect with the meter. A number of small appliances are big time EMF emitters.
One good thing about EMF is that it does not go far.
One of the best ways you can protect yourself and your family from the dangers associated with EMF radiation is to get away from its source. Low frequency EMF can go through many substances and materials but it cannot get far. When you move just a few inches you can dramatically reduce your exposure. After you have taken the meter from the EMF safety store and walked around your home, you know what areas you will need to stay away from.
Many experts say that, if you can, you should try to stay at least three feet from any appliances. If you cannot do that, it can be hard to stand that far away from a stove if you are cooking, you can get EMF shielding fabric at the EMF safety store.
You should know that all of the appliances and devices in your home that use power are going to emit at least a little EMF. It is important to use the equipment from the EMF safety store to look at the emissions from your devices and appliances because some small devices may produce more than the larger appliances in your home. For example, mobile phone chargers are big offenders when it comes to EMF emissions.
If you are not using an appliance or a device, turn it off.
This is a good habit to get into for a host of different reasons. You save power and lower your utility bills, reduce your carbon footprint and lower your and your family’s exposure to EMF radiation. When you go to bed at night, turn off your wireless internet router and any other wireless technology you have in your home. Turn off all of your computers at night, and the printers, too.
The most important rooms to do that in are the places where people sleep. If you have any appliances that can be moved away from the bed, that is a great thing.
Consider going with wired connections where you can.
While it is convenient to have wireless internet and all of the other wireless services many people have come to depend on, you will live in a safer home if you go with wired connections. When you use an ethernet connection for your internet, you will have a much faster and secure connection.
You may also want to go back to phones with cords. They are not as convenient but they are a lot safer in terms of the EMF radiation that they put out. You can get super long cords so you will not be limited by where you can talk on the phone.
In today’s world, there are a lot of problems we cannot prevent or be protected from but we can protect ourselves from EMF radiation with some effort.
