Radiation

We are being exposed to increasing levels of electromagnetic radiation, especially microwaves, from an increasing number of sources, including cell phones and towers, cordless phones, satellites, computers, digital TV, radar, wireless internet, and wireless LANs in schools. This radiation is having a demonstrably harmful effect on our health. Below are some measures we can take to protect ourselves.

CRT computer monitors emitted radiation all around — more at the sides and back than in front, because of the flyback transformer. The liquid-crystal display (LCD) in newer monitors gives off much less radiation. However, the hard drive in laptops may still be a problem, because, as Blake Levitt points out in Electromagnetic Fields, it rests "literally on the user’s lap at genital level."

Cell phones and portable phones give off extensive radiation. The most common fear is cancer, but neurological problems tend to appear first. Levitt advises the following: "Because of serious concerns about the safety of this technology, it is recommended that people stay with wired models until more is known or strict national standards are in place. Also, keep in mind that you are not the only one affected by wireless items; so is everyone near you." Current standards do exist, but they’re not what could be called "strict." For more information on microwaves, see sources on the Links page. Levitt provides information on where to buy a comparatively inexpensive gaussmeter if you’re interested in taking radiation measurements. (Also see www.lessemf.com.)

Other significant sources of radiation to be avoided include fluorescent lights, microwave ovens (both because of leakage and the effect on food), electric blankets, and waterbeds (because of the electric heater). For a more extensive discussion, see Robert O. Becker, M.D., Cross Currents, and Levitt, Electromagnetic Fields.

Q-Link Technologies (formerly Clarus) makes devices for neutralizing electromagnetic radiation. One is built into a digital clock; when plugged in, it counters radiation in a 30-, 40, or 50-foot zone around the unit (depending on price). They make other units that can be worn, as for traveling or work, such as the Q-Link pendant. 

Biomagnetic Research, in Arizona, makes a range of devices for neutralizing radiation from computers and other sources. Their products operate on a different principle from Q-Link's and are less expensive. These include "smog-buster tabs," about the size of a quarter, made of ceramic and rare earths. The tab is placed on top of the monitor, about an inch and a half back, and one on the computer, on the side facing the user. The company also makes a bead from the same material, to be worn around the neck, and pendants that include the bead and other semiprecious stones for various therapeutic purposes. The pendant can be worn all day but should not be worn to bed, or you may wake up with a headache.

Other sources for a variety of radiation-mitigating devices are www.lessemf.com and www.energpolarit.com

Another type of radiation that can cause health problems may arise when an energy vortex from the earth creates a geopathic zone in a building. You can locate such zones with dowsing or muscle testing. See also The Cutting Edge Catalog.
