huge increase in electromagnetic radiation
The wireless world has exploded. There are nearly 7 billion mobile phone subscriptions world wide. We live and work with computers, tablets, and the ever present wi-Fi. All of these devices emit electromagnetic radiation and we are now immersed in it 24 hours a day.
Many scientists & public bodies question the safety of this way of living because there is a significant body of research that indicates low level electromagnetic radiation has a detrimental effect on human health.
over 80% of studies conclude their is an effect
In 2006 Swiss researchers from Bern University presented the findings of a systematic analysis of all research results concerning the assessment of health risks from mobile telephone frequencies. They found that 33% of studies funded by industrial concerns conclude that exposure to mobile telephone radio frequencies has an effect on our organism. That figure rises to over 80% in studies carried out with public funding.
the precautionary principle
The European Parliament has recommended the Precautionary Principle. "While electrical and electromagnetic fields in certain frequency bands have fully beneficial effects which are applied in medicine, other non-ionising frequencies, be they sourced from extremely low frequencies, power lines or certain high frequency waves used in the fields of radar, telecommunications and mobile telephony, appear to have more or less potentially harmful, non-thermal, biological effects on plants, insects and animals, as well as the human body when exposed to levels that are below the official threshold values.
One must respect the precautionary principle and revise the current threshold values; waiting for high levels of scientific and clinical proof can lead to very high health and economic costs, as was the case in the past with asbestos, leaded petrol and tobacco."

15,000-25,000 peer reviewed papers
In May 2015 Associate Professor Olle Johansson, a neuroscientist at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden and an expert in this area of research was quoted in The Telegraph as saying “If this environment is safe we’re talking about in the order of 15,000 to 25,000 papers – in peer-reviewed scientific journals – all being wrong. That has never happened before.”
are you suffering from 'electro-stress'?
It is worth considering how high your exposure is. Do you and your family live and work with wi-Fi? How long do you spend on the computer or mobile phone? Do you use cordless DECT phones at home?
reduce the effects of electro-stress
It now becomes paramount that we try to reduce or neutralize the levels of electromagnetic radiation that we are being exposed to. If you can turn the wi-Fi off at night and consider turning it off in the day if it is not being used. Switch your mobile phone to airplane mode. Take regular breaks from your computer. Use corded landlines instead of cordless DECT phones.
