HEALTH EFFECTS OF EMF

Historically, the determination of whether or not an energy source was harmful was based on an energy's ability to essentially burn human tissue.  We now know that damage occurs far short of thermal injury and that there are many types of molecular and cellular damage that occur with man-made EMFs.  

For some people, the jury is still officially out on EMFs specific and long-term health effects and it will likely take years for all of the pieces of the puzzle to come together (remember cigarettes? asbestos? leaded gasoline?...).  For health-minded people, there is sufficient current evidence that exposure is harmful and that the escalating cumulative effect is extremely serious.  It is a fact that we live in a rapidly expanding technological world and are experiencing exponentially increasing EMF exposure.  As such, action is indicated now and every effort should be made to limit EMF exposure wherever possible.

 

The BioInitiative 2012 Report:

http://www.bioinitiative.org/table-of-contents/

This is an extensive report detailing health effects across multiple organ systems.  Though criticized as “cherry picking"  studies to support their view, the strength of this report is that it was done independent of governments and existing professional societies that have historically clung to old standards and outdated views.  It was independently prepared by 29 expert authors from 10 countries.  Over 2000 studies were reviewed and the report is over 1500 pages in length.

 

American Academy of Environmental Medicine

Joseph Mercola, D.O.

https://emf.mercola.com/

Extensive, progressive/alternative health website with recent addition of new emf domain that has many good articles, videos and interviews outlining EMF concerns.  See very good recent articles on insomnia, melatonin, mitochondrial impairment, intracellular calcium disruption, possible connections to neurological conditions including autism and Alzheimer's, possible connections to cardiac arrhythmia, among many others.  

 

The Non-Tinfoil Guide to EMFs, by Nicolas Pineault

This is a well written, very practical guide to "fixing our stupid use of technology".  Easily readable overview.  Much of the book focuses on RF fields.

 

OverPowered, By Martin Blank, Phd   

Comprehensive look at the history, science and effects in humans and nature of the EMF problem.  Written by a double PhD scientist who clearly knows his "stuff".  Probably, our favorite book on the subject.

 

The Body Electric, by Robert o. Becker, m.D.

This is an extremely well written and readable book.  Learn about the body's natural electricity and the extraordinary things that nature accomplishes with micro charges and currents and then fathom how modern exposure can be anything short of dangerous.
