The Top Radiation Gadgets You Use Everyday
What’s your favorite electronic gadget? It might be your mobile phone, smartwatch or fitness tracker. If you’re like most people, you probably own a laptop or tablet. And if you and your family are fond of devices, your home may be bursting with smart appliances in the kitchen, Wi-Fi enabled home entertainment systems and personal assistants like Siri or Alexa. But did you know that these helpful tools emit EMF radiation that may be harmful to your family’s health?
In this article, we’ll tell you about the top radiation gadgets that have become an essential part of your daily routine, what the dangers are from EMF and how to get radiation protection for yourself and your loved ones.
What is EMF Radiation?
EMF is an electromagnetic field that is created by electric charges, and EMF produces radiation. There are different frequencies of EMF. High-frequency electromagnetic (EMF) radiation includes x-rays, gamma rays and ultraviolet. This ionizing radiation is extremely dangerous for people, causing cell damage and cancer. Non-ionizing EMF radiation, such as radiofrequency (RF), is emitted from many household devices like smartphones, Wi-Fi routers, laptops, tablets, home assistants, baby monitors and fitness wearables. These devices can also pose health risks, due to the long hours of use and proximity to the body.
What Are the Health Risks of EMF Radiation?
Many scientific studies have found significant negative effects. EMF health effects can include memory impairment, behavioral issues, headaches, hearing loss, oxidative stress, sleep disorders, increases in heart rate and cancer. These health risks are especially acute in children since their cells are not yet fully developed. There is also the question of frequent use over a long period of time, the effects of which are not entirely known.
Which Household Appliances Produce Electromagnetic Fields?
Many commonly used household appliances produce electromagnetic (EM) fields, whether or not they’re wireless devices. In addition to your computers, smartphones and routers, this also includes microwave ovens, cordless phones, electric toothbrushes and razors, hair dryers, coffee machine, toaster and induction hobs. Even the conventional electric current in your house emits EMF radiation, and if not wired correctly it can be significant. Of course, all Wi-Fi enabled “smart appliances” produce EMF.
Radiation Emitting Gadgets You Use Every Day
While some may say that the amount of EMF shielding from non-ionizing radiation sources is not enough to be seriously damaging, the problem lies in how much we use these devices. If you think about all the radiation emitting gadgets that you use daily, for long periods of time—laptops, tablets, Wi-Fi routers, earphones, wireless keyboards and mice, microwave ovens, fitness trackers and other wearables—the danger becomes clear.
What Everyday Items Emit the Most Radiation?
It is possible to measure EMF radiation with an EMF meter, so you can always purchase or borrow one to find out for yourself. Looking at typical items found in the home that emit electromagnetic radiation, a 2.4 or 5 GHz wireless router has the highest level at the device. Of course your cell phone is a big emitter as well, especially when on a call. Laptop, tablet, and computer EMF radiation are all similar, but less than a WiFi router or cell phone. Cordless phones and baby monitors are significant emitters of EMFs, as are some wireless "smart home" devices like thermostats, TV's, appliances, etc. Bluetooth headphones are also a concern, because although they emit lower RF radiation, they are worn right on the head and often for long periods of time.
How Can We Prevent Radiation from Everyday Gadgets?
Fortunately, there are steps you can take to reduce your EMF exposure. These EMF protection methods fall into three basic categories: proximity, blocking and neutralizing.
- Keep Your Distance and Minimize Exposure - Don’t store a cell phone next to your body. Keep it in a briefcase, pocketbook or backpack. Use the speakerphone feature when talking on your phone, rather than holding it to your ear, or use texting rather than talking. Shut off Wi-Fi routers at night and when not in use. Use a wired connection rather than the WiFi, and make sure the Wi-Fi is off on both the computer and router.
- Block the Radiation – There are certain kinds of shielding materials that are used in electronic design which can block electromagnetic radiation. The problem with EMF shielding products is that these materials block EMF completely, which can affect how your device functions.
- Harmonize Your Radiation Exposure – This advanced technology harmonizes the harmful effects of radiation. Unlike EMF blockers, harmonizers won’t affect how your electronic device operates. The EMF Harmonizer Plus is an example of this technology.
EMF Harmony Provides Next Generation Radiation Protection for Today’s Devices
EMF Harmony’s products use proprietary bio-energetic technology first developed in Europe to harmonize the negative energetic frequencies of EMF radiation, while supporting the body for optimal health. Since it works on the sub-atomic level, it won’t block or alter the electromagnetic frequencies, so your electronic devices will continue to function normally.
