Fact or fiction: Your cell phone can hurt you

Chuck, heard about electrosmog? Can it cause health problems? – Eddy R., Anchorage, Alaska

Our world has become an intertwined entanglement of electrical wires and waves, radio, television and satellite signals, wireless and Wi-Fi networks, cell phone towers, etc. Combine those with the myriad electrical appliances in most houses, such as computers, cordless phones, microwaves, lights, refrigerators, hair dryers, etc. – and those don’t include the barrage of personal electronic gadgets that have proliferated our lives and remain in our possession 24/7.

Individually, the health risks of each of the above may be marginal, but in a cumulative sense, they end up emitting into our lives streams of what experts call “electrosmog.”

The Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine defines electrosmog as pollution through electromagnetic energy. ACAM notes that pollution should be of particular importance to every human because each of us is “a complex organization of electrical fields” held together by a body that is composed of 70 percent electrically conductive water and roughly 60 trillion electrically charged cells. From brainwaves to muscle contractions and nerve impulses, we are vast networks of electrical charges.

An electromagnetic field is a field of energy created by electrically charged objects. Just as transistor radios have competing signals, we are susceptible to other electrical frequencies. And our bodies essentially attune to surrounding electrical charges, though we are not able to distinguish between friendly electromagnetic fields and foe EMFs.

ACAM has documented several sources and studies over the years that have substantiated the negative health effects of excessive EMFs on humans. Here are just a few examples:

No wonder Dr. Samuel Milham, an experienced epidemiologist who studied high-frequency voltage transients and reported his findings in his book, “Dirty Electricity: Electrification and the Diseases of Civilization,” concluded that the “war on cancer” has been a failure because “people have missed the major carcinogen.”

So what are we to do, seeing as we are surrounded by such vast EMFs? Of course, the solution to reducing electrosmog is minimizing the exposure and reducing bad and competing EMFs. Here are a few excellent suggestions from ACAM and other experts for reducing electrosmog:

In short, go natural. Go organic. Go green. Your health won’t resent it.

Next week in “C-Force,” I will discuss one of the newest and most pervasive emitters of electrosmog. It is being installed on nearly every building across America, including your home!
