Should You Be Worried About EMF Exposure?

Most of us are used to the electronic conveniences of modern life. But few of us are aware of the possible health risks presented by the gadgets that make our world work. Our power lines, cellphones, microwaves, Wi-Fi routers, computers, and other appliances send out a stream of invisible energy waves. Electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) are produced anywhere electricity is used, including at home and in the workplace. Some experts are concerned about potential health effects from these fields. But should we be worried? While most researchers don’t believe most EMFs are dangerous, there are still some scientists who question the...

Faraday Cages & EMR Shielding Solutions

Recently, we’ve been getting more and more clients inquiring about Faraday Cages or materials that could be used to build a faraday cage. Therefore, as a company, we feel there is a need to educate our readers, website visitors, and customers on the history of faraday cages, what it is, and what we recommend to use to build a faraday cage. A Brief History of Faraday Cage Faraday cage is named after the scientist Michael Faraday, who coined this term in 1836. A Faraday cage is designed with the intention to block electrical fields by having an external electrical field...

IS LIVING NEAR POWER LINES HARMFUL?

Our Low-Frequency EMF meters can be used to determine the amount of electromagnetic radiation coming from nearby power lines. EMF meters can measure emissions at varying distances and at different times of the day. These devices measure radiation in milligaus units, which indicate magnetic field strength. A reading of 0.5 milligaus or more falls within dangerous levels of radiation emission. Test the levels with our LF meters or book an appointment with us just to be sure.Chances are if you can see the transmissions lines from your window, then it is having an effect on your health. To add to...

Smartphone Radiation: iPhones Emitting Double Reported Levels

Using accredited lab tests that mimic human tissue, reporters from The Chicago Tribune tested smartphone radiofrequency radiation emitted by 11 models of popular cell phones. They found most of the phones exceeded the legal limit set by the FCC of 1.6 watts per kilogram averaged over 1 gram of tissue. Radiofrequency radiation exposure from the iPhone 7 — one of the most popular smartphones ever sold — measured over the legal safety limit and more than double what Apple reported to federal regulators from its own testing. The FCC is currently investigating the reported findings. A recent investigation has reignited...

The Effects of Exposure to Low Frequency Electromagnetic Fields in the Treatment of Migraine Headache: A Cohort Study

Abstract Introduction Findings have indicated that increased usage of mobile phones may be concomitant with higher rate of headache attacks due to the low radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF). The aim of this study was to determine the effects of low RF-EMF on the treatment outcome in migraine patients. Methods This cohort study was performed on 114 migraine patients referred to the Neurology Clinic of Golestan Hospital in Ahvaz, Southwest Iran, from September 2014 to March 2015. Patients with migraine were interviewed using a standardized questionnaire exploring mobile phones, Wi-Fi devices and fixed-line telephone use as RF-EMF sources. After 3 months,...
