Home Radiation Safety Tips
Our exposure to electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) is at an all time high, thanks to the plethora of electronics and gadgets that we use at home.
In fact, EMF radiation is nearly impossible to get away from, since we are mostly dependent on electronics and gadgets for living conveniences. It’s very likely, however, that you and your family’s health is at risk from constant EMF and radio frequency (RF) exposure.
The International Agency into Research in Cancer (IARC) published a press release re-classifying Radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as “possibly carcinogenic to humans”, following results published by the World Health Organisation’s Interphone study. Additionally, you and your children can suffer from memory loss, sleeping disorders, and headaches because of radiation exposure.
To limit exposure, the first plan of action is to protect your living space from EMF and there are a variety of products to help you do just that. Here are 6 things you can do to your house to reduce EMF radiation:
Use electric filters.
Electric filters like Graham-Stetzer Filters (Stetzerizers®) by Stetzer Electric Co., can reduce high-frequency radiation, or “dirty energy,” generated by typical home appliances. The number of filters needed doesn’t depend on the size of the house or building but on the number of appliances, the establishment uses. An average-sized house would probably need around 20 filters.
Electric filters may cost about $30-35 each.
Use shielding paint.
There are paints in the market that reduce RF and microwave radiation by up to 99%. These paints are for interior use as a primer and can be painted over with a standard latex paint.
You may need to hire a licensed electrician to use shielding paint as it requires a grounding kit and MU grounding tape.
Shielding paint costs start at $60.
Use protective canopies for sleeping.
EMF and RF exposure affects sleep quality by disrupting brain wave patterns. Using protective canopies can reduce exposure by blocking 95-99% of EMF/RF with its polyester-copper-silver mesh.
The sheet is to be laid under the bed or carpet and is finished with a hem on all sides. To achieve optimal results, it is important to install this item as well as the canopy in a low AC electric field environment. It is recommended that you use a body voltage kit, an AC Electric Field meter and or the assistance of an EMF measuring technician to ensure the sleeping area has low AC Electric Field exposure. The installation of a remote cut off switch can aid in reducing AC electric fields in sleeping areas.
Use protective baby blankets.
Children are more at risk than adults when it comes to radiation exposure. As their immune systems are still developing, making them more susceptible to the effects of EMFs.
Like protective canopies, anti-radiation baby blankets create a safe environment for the infant to grow and develop by minimizing their exposure to everyday radiation. You can use Vest Anti-Radiation Baby Blanket to protect the infant from all potentially harmful effects of exposure to electromagnetic radiation at this vulnerable stage of life.
Use a window EMF/RF shielding film.
Most of the EMF and RF radiation that penetrates a house enters through windows. These shielding films reduce up to 99% of 5 GHz frequencies (most cell phone signals work at 2.4 GHz). To use the films, simply cut the size you need from the roll and apply to the window.
Prices start at $30-40 per linear feet. Check out Signal Protect, Clear Window Film.
Use radiation shields for your appliances.
Appliances like microwave ovens are very popular in modern homes because they are a convenient way to heat food. The only problem is that microwave ovens emits a lot of harmful radiation, when in use.
Get a Vest Microwave Shield to minimize radiation exposure using a shield that well blends with the kitchen décor.
Make your homes not just your happy place, but your safe place as well. Using protective shields help ensure that your family is safe from harmful radiation that is emitted by your home electronics and gadgets. You don’t want to take the risk when it comes to your and your loved ones’ health.
