Microwave sickness (Electro-Sensitivity):
: a condition of impaired health reported especially in the Russian medical literature that is characterized by headaches, anxiety, sleep disturbances, fatigue, and difficulty in concentrating and by changes in the cardiovascular and central nervous systems and that is held to be caused by prolonged exposure to low-intensity microwave radiation.
How to Protect Yourself and Those you Love
In Your home- "Old School" technology is safest.
If you have EHS (and even if you don't), your safest bet is to ditch your cell phone completely and get a land line. If that isn't feasible, keep your phone in airplane mode and only use it when necessary. Always keeping your phone in active mode means your phone is constantly searching for the closest tower. That means it is pulsing with the most intensity. Use it when you are closest to the provider's tower and when it is most stationary.
Get an old fashioned land line (Century Link in the Rogue Valley). Don't use a DECT phone (cordless land line phones) because they are emitting a similar type of RF energy as your cell phone and they may cause debilitating health effects.
Safely Using Your Cell Phone-
These days, it’s hard to find someone who doesn’t own a mobile phone of some kind. In its latest research, the Pew Research Center estimates that at least 95 percent of all Americans own a mobile phone. In recent years, the number of people who own a smartphone had also increased: From 35 percent – back in 2011 when the survey was first conducted – to currently 77 percent.
The recent upswing in smartphone ownership and usage, however, comes with its own set of problems. Recently, people have seen stories of how smartphone addiction is a real thing – a study revealed that people obsessively check their phones (every 12 minutes, to be precise) and even touch it at least 2,600 times a day.
However, one thing that’s not being discussed, particularly in legacy media, is how smartphones are potential cancer risks. Last year, California’s Department of Public Health (DPH) released guidelines on reducing exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy from mobile phones. In the guidance document, the DPH indicated that while the science behind RF energy is still evolving, “long-term, high use of cell phones may be linked to certain types of cancer and other health effects.”
One thing the document suggests is putting mobile phones in airplane mode (or flight mode) to prevent RF energy while using it.
In his video, Neil from EMF Safety Zone looked at whether putting your phone in airplane mode can prevent it from emitting RF while using it.
