Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) and Your Health
What is Electromagnetic Radiation?
The transmission of electrical energy through wires, the broadcasting of
radio signals and the phenomenon of visible light are examples of electromagnetic radiation (EMR). EMR always consists of both an electrical field and a magnetic field. It occurs in a wide range of frequencies, spanning what is called the electromagnetic spectrum. At the high end is cosmic radiation. At the low end is household electricity. The lower electromagnetic frequencies have been utilized by man to generate electricity and all associated electrical products, including all electronic communication systems and electrical appliances. Electromagnetic radiation (EMR) is often called an electromagnetic field (EMF)when it falls within the lower frequencies. Both EMR and EMF are commonly used to mean the same thing.
What are the Common Sources of EMF?
Electricity is the most common source of power throughout the world
because it is easily generated and transmitted to where it is needed. As electricity moves through wires and machines, it produces EMF. The power grids of nations consist of electrical generation, transmission and distribution facilities. As electricity is sent along the wires of the power grid, EMF is created. In cities, primary electric power distribution lines run across the top of utility poles and feed secondary transformers, which are then connected to the electric power meters of buildings. Once electricity is
delivered to the user, it continues to produce EMF throughout the wiring systems of offices, homes, schools, factories and other structures. The appliances and electrical
equipment connected to these wiring systems produce their own EMF as well.
In the workplace the generators of EMF include computers, cell phones, fax machines, copy
machines, fluorescent lights, printers, scanners, telephone (PBX) switching systems, electrical instruments, motors and other electrical devices.
In homes, the immediate sources of EMF include electric blankets, electric water bed heaters, hairdryers, electric shavers, television sets, stereo systems, air conditioners, fluorescent lights, electric can openers, telephone answering machines, cell and portable phones, refrigerators, blenders, portable heaters, clothes washers and dryers, coffee makers, vacuum cleaners, toasters, and microwave ovens.
EMF is not only produced by electricity moving through wires or machines, but it is the
nature of all television and satellite transmissions, as well as radio and microwave communication systems, including cell phones. Transportation methods such as automobiles, trucks, airplanes, electrical and magnetic trains and subway systems are significant
sources of EMF.
More than one source of EMF in proximity to other sources will produce overlapping fields in the same area. Any metropolitan home or office environment in the world will be saturated by a variety of interpenetrating EMF from a variety of sources. The nature of EMF is very complex and the number of EMF sources are rapidly growing. Unfortunately, the entire effect of multiple electromagnetic fields on human physiology is not completely understood. However, it is well known that low-frequency magnetic fields can trigger major biochemical responses critical to the functioning of human cells, which operate by complex electrochemical processes. The consequences of living in our EMF world may not be known for decades. Virtually all research on the serious health effects of man-made EMF
has come to the conclusion that the adverse health responses from EMF are from long-term
We are the First Generation to Face an EMF World.
Paul Brodeur, the author of Currents of Death, a book about EMF and a series of famous articles on EMF for the magazine The New Yorker, first raised the question about the key difference between natural DC magnetic fields of the earth and artificial man-made EMF
which is mostly composed of alternating current (AC). Brodeur suggests that the AC magnetic fields appear to have profoundly negative effects on human cell behavior. Human life has gradually evolved over two billion years in an environment devoid of AC magnetic fields. Man-made AC fields differ greatly from the earth's magnetic field, as the earth's current is direct current (DC) and not alternating current (AC). Brodeur argues that, in terms of the biological consequences, this constant, unprecedented human exposure to AC fields is highly stressful. The evidence is persuasive that man-made AC fields can interact with or stress our human cells to the point where adverse reactions result.
The adverse effects of exposure to EMF appear to arise slowly over a
long period of time. For example, it may take 5 to 10 years in the case of leukemia or perhaps 30 to 40 years in the case of Alzheimer's disease for symptoms to develop. The health cases that are coming to light in the 1990s most likely had their origin in the 1980s or before. Damage that is being inflicted today is not even knowable. The EMF problem has been categorized as a new form of pollution as consequential as air and water pollution. It has also been likened to the newly-discovered hazards of asbestos and
cigarette smoking. In terms of its cumulative health effects, it's been compared to the slow process of lead poisoning. The EMF problem will grow - and at a compounding rate.
Fortunately, public awareness of EMF is also growing.
Recommended safety levels range from 0.5 mG to 2.5 mG as the maximum
exposure - with 1.0 mG as a preferred standard. Adverse biological effects have been found at 2.5 mG.
Protect Yourself from Harmful EMF
Your body possesses a remarkable ability to adapt to rapidly changing
environments. But when your body is chronically bombarded by man-made
EMF (electromagnetic fields), its innate intelligence and energy can
weakened. When your body's ability to cope is impaired, it's more
difficult for your body to shield itself from negative influences. EMF,
in effect, can knock your innate intelligence and energy "out of phase."
You know why the airline captain tells you to turn off your electronic
devices during take off and landing? The EMF generated by your cell
laptop wreak havoc on the plane's navigational system. And they wreak
havoc on yours as well.
Some scientists estimate that you are now daily exposed to 100 million
times the EMF radiation of your grandparents. Research shows that these
fields have a significant disruptive effect on the natural energy levels
of your body. Your body's energy, as well as your cellular communication
system, are altered by the high frequencies of EMF. Man-made radiation
magnifies your body's "fight or flight" responses, compounding your
adrenal loads from other stressors and significantly reducing your
ability to effectively cope.
EMF disrupts your natural energy levels, triggering stress responses.
alternative and traditional doctors report that EMF is a co-factor in
increasing your daily stress levels. Stress can impair your body's
ability to heal. EMF adds stress to your own stress and fatigue. EMF
stress to your already taxed system. EMF contributes to energy depletion
fatigue from cell phones, air travel and household appliances.
Clarus - The Solution to EMF Pollution
Recognizing the growth worldwide EMF pollution problem, Clarus Products has responded with a line of innovative products for advanced EMF protection. Clarus developed and validated its demonstrable technology in collaboration with internationally recognized
scientists from Stanford University and the University of California. Using different testing methods, Clarus products are shown to reduce stress levels by 30% to 70%, especially stress caused by EMF sources such as computers and cell phones.
Independent testing has shown that the QLink products with Sympathetic Resonance TechnologyT (SRTT) neutralize the potentially harmful effects of EMF. Working like a tuning fork for your energy, the QLink products align your body's energy to its ideal.
Without the interference of EMF, QLink customers report there is a difference in their daily lives. They experience enhanced mental clarity and alertness, more balanced emotions, improved overall performance, are calmer, more balanced, and sleep better.
As a final note, Andrew Weil, M.D., author of Spontaneous Healing and 8 Weeks to Optimum Health says that "Electromagnetic pollution (EMF) may be the most significant form of pollution human activity has produced in this century, all the more dangerous because it is invisible and insensible." The Qlink products were designed to help neutralize this danger.
