What is Electrosmog
This is the new buzzword that simply means electromagnetic radiation
Electromagnetic radiation is defined as:
"Energy having both the form of electromagnetic waves and the form of a stream of photons and travelling at the speed of light in a vacuum. The entire range of frequencies and wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation makes up the electromagnetic spectrum."
In my extensive Internet research on this topic, I came across many different causes of Electrosmog. Below are three of the main factors in my life and I have highlighted only one weblink for each topic out of thousands of links on the Internet. I ask you to do your own due diligence to confirm or debunk or even add to my finding.
As societies industrialize and the technological revolution continues, there has been an unprecedented increase in the number and diversity of electromagnetic field (EMF) sources. These sources include video display units (VDUs) associated with computers, mobile phones and their base stations. While these devices have made our life richer, safer and easier, they have been accompanied by concerns about possible health risks due to their EMF emissions.
I decided to start a new thread about this since I have several threads which address a possible connection to tinnitus and the harmful effects of EMF/RF we are bombarded with at an ever increasing rate. Everyone just about has a cell phone, a microwave and oodles of electronic gadgets, entertainment components and TVs. I thought it best to post any research methods to mitigate the radiation effects, etc. and share my experiences I am encountering regarding this topic.
I have received many comments on this topic.
Smart Meter Heath Risk
The World Health Organization classifies RF as a 2B carcinogen, same as DDT and lead. Military studies here show pulsed radiation can cause serious health problems, including Tinnitus, memory loss and seizures. Thousands of studies link biological effects to RF radiation exposure, including increased cancer risk, damage to the nervous system, adverse reproductive effects, DNA damage, and more. The top public health official in Santa Cruz County California prepared this report, confirming Smart Meters pose a health risk. The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) sent this letter to the CPUC, calling for a halt to wireless Smart Meters. See also this letter from Dr. Carpenter, endorsed by 50+experts.
My Short Story About Electrosmog
Over the years, from time to time, I have had issues with Tinnitus. Over recent years, since we have been living in our northern home, my Tinnitus had been getting so bad, that at times it would make me cry with the pain and discomfort. The Ontario medical system could not find anything wrong with me.
The issue wasn't with me, it was the ever increasing hypersensitivity to the various electromagnetic fields around me. I had learned that there is a Microwave Communication tower just north of us. See the map for confirmation.
In addition, I had noticed issues with my Tinnitus when we received our first so-called Smart Meter while we lived in Brampton Ontario, and that unit was attached to the house. Meanwhile the Smart Meter here at our northern Ontario home is on a post out by the road, not attached to the home and I could still feel the affects of it.
With the ever increasing Hydro One bill, we have been reducing our electrical consumption and during this process, is when I began to start making all the connections with my Tinnitus issue and sensitivities increasing. Even though we did reduce our consumption of electricity, our bill still keeps going up. WHY!? Well, that will have to be another post some day.
I have spent a lot of time trying to debunk or weed out the myths versus the truths about what will help us. I put up analuminum shield behind the so-called Smart Meter and grounded it to the earth. This gives us one step in protection while we are in the home. This was a cost of about $40. I then spent another $30 on two separate shields inside the home to help protect us from the Microwave tower. These are basically aluminum sheets that are also grounded.
Correction & Update! (Nov. 2017)
Another option is to get the BioZen product which will help with all the individual devices that are contributing to Electrosmog. Check out the video here.
Some time in early Sept. 2017, the EMF issue from the north had faded away, only leaving me with a secondary smaller EMF radiation coming from smart meters. As a result, I have stopped using the aluminium shields. This reduction in EMF has not reduced my Tinnitus, as it is only getting stronger.
