Steps You Can Take to Protect Yourself From the Harmful Electromagnetic Fields

This article focuses on the lessening the negative biological effects of artificially induced electromagnetic fields generated by cellular base stations, mobile phones, wi-fi, bluetooth, and other wireless communication devices that utilize EMF.


In about last 20-25 years we, as never before, increasingly expose ourselves and the environment to the man-made EMF radiation.

It happened one thing after another, cellphones went mainstream and quickly many individuals started to have a source of non-ionizing radiation right into the pocket for hours a day, some people have had it near all day long without giving a thought to the consequences they might face later.

Some time after that Wi-Fi hotspots and BlueTooth were introduced and popularized, later on "smart"phones came along and many got hooked on them, spending near half of spare time of a day touching gliding, and staring at the screen.

Modern smartphones have a bigger number of built in antennas (there are known models that have 16 of them), they utilize more aggressive signal modulations for transferring huge volumes of data compared to the previous generations.

Along with the "smart"phones, all kinds of wireless gadgets appear to work with them as extensions.

Each newer wave of digital wireless devices introduced more and faster data in-and-out capabilities and along with them more EMF pollution surrounding us as a consequence.

These days, unless you live deep in a very rural area, you will be surrounded by cell towers near at every corner. Needless to say that this fact is a great contributor to the harmful EMF pollution

In fact current cellular technologies can't function without cell sites, these artifacts burn a lot of electricity (just look at the diameter of the power cables attached to them), as a logical deduction causing more fossil fuel burning, releasing CO2, thus accelerating climate change, contribute to atmospheric particulate matter, smog and to acid rain.

Tips for minimizing your exposure to harmful EMF

  • If you have a Wi-Fi hotspot in your place, it is similar to having a small cell site in it, for most of us this is really unnecessary, turn off the Wi-Fi on your router, plug your computer to the router with a network cable instead, and don't forget to switch off the wi-fi module in your computer too.
    Along with cutting a huge source of the harmful EMF radiation, as a positive side effect you'll have a more stable and secure internet connection, as your private data transmissions won't fly all around your neighborhood (with some affordable wireless network adapters available on the market today it's very doable to eavesdrop on a wi-fi data from hundreds feet away).
  • If you play guitar connected to the amplifier or the effects by means of a wireless transmitter, it means you irradiate your body during your plays, consider switching to a cable.
  • If you really don't need a smartphone, don't use one, studies clearly show that among the negative physical and less obvious to a naked eye biological effects on living beings, it changes your thinking, making your brain more adaptable for small simple tasks, and less capable of deep thinking and contemplation. The book "The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains" by Nicholas Carr has much more to say about it.
  • If you can live without a cellphone, start doing it now, use your corded phone at home in place of the mobile phone; if you can't, at least switch it off or put it in "airplane mode" when you don't need it, and especially during the night.
    When a cellphone is unused and turned on (except being in airplane mode) it still sends and receives signals to exchange information with the base stations to be able to receive incoming calls and for other purposes.
    The documentary movie "RESONANCE Beings of Frequency" shows that the working wireless devices interfere with production of melatonin that is a hormone which primarily responsible for regulating your body's circadian rhythm to manage your natural sleep cycle.
    This part starts at around 01:07:44
    If you have a good reason to keep your cellphone online during the night, at least keep it at the opposite side of your home, in a separate room if possible, placing it at the window with its back "looking" outside the window.
    Doing this, most likely, will make it easier for the phone to connect to the nearby base stations sparing it the need of extra signal amplification.
  • If you use a cordless phone (portable telephone), switch it to a corded one.
  • If you have those little bluetooth or wifi gadgets like "smart"watch, wireless earbuds, that connect to your mobile device, consider getting rid of them. In most cases it's not worth the trouble adding yet another layer of radiation around yourself. You can replace a bluetooth hands-free set with a wired one.
  • Depicted EMF from a cellphone near a human head - a frame from the 'RESONANCE Beings of Frequency' movie
    If you don't normally use a hands-free set while talking on a mobile phone, you can use the built-in phone's speakerphone so you will be able to keep the device farther away from your body in general and your head in particular.
  • an outlet covered with a piece of aluminum foil against EMF
    If you have an electrical outlet at your bed, move your bed farther away from it. If moving the bed is not an option, carefully shield the outlet with a piece of aluminum foil that used for cooking.
  • If you live near a cell site, high voltage power lines, or an electrical substation consider relocating. Studies have shown that people living within the radius of 500 meters (about 1600 feet) had cancer a few times more often than ones that lived farther away.
    You can easily find the 2004 study - "increased incidence of cancer near a cell-phone transmitter station" on the internet.
  • Use grounding sessions on a regular basis. Just like radio equipment benefits from having a connection to the ground, our bodies too, by providing stabilizing support on a cellular level and improving metabolism.

    There is even a whole book written on this subject, they call the grounding earthing in that book.

    I myself connect to the grounding terminal of a power outlet using a simple home-made device which consists of a 3-prong AC plug, a piece of a copper wire, and an alligator plug. The alligator plug I often attach to a metal bracelet that sits on my wrist.

    If you're going to assemble a similar device, make sure to attach the wire only to the connector of the ground prong, and just in case, wrap some isolation tape around the connectors of the 2 unused prongs, so you'll have no chance that the wire might touch the connectors carrying electric current.

    Even being grounded for half an hour a day might be very beneficial for the health.

  • When you work in front of a computer, make a habit of getting up and having 10-15 minute break every hour or so. A computer monitor is also a source of unhealthy EMF. Making breaks will lessen the accumulative effect of the artificial electromagnetic field exposure on the body.
  • Some time ago, I've learned from Frolov Yuriy, a biologist and analyst with a systematic approach to health that vitamin B3, although in rather small extent assists to withstand the harmful EMF radiation.

    A full class of vitamin B, apart from B12, contains in wild or organic spirulina and chlorella seaweed in a natural form. Both of them are available as supplements.

  • Consider looking at the EMF protection products on the market, you might be surprised to see that there have been many different solutions for years already. I encourage you to make your research about them before you getting yours.

    The work I currently have requires me to have a cellphone, and I've been using the 'Neitronik 5GRS' for a cellphone and 'Neitronik МГ-04М' for my computer monitor.

    The Neitronik products have been on the market since 1999, they have been intensively tested since then in a variety of experiments, including live blood analysis. The Neitronik 5GRS, as well as МГ-04М model contain a quite complex micro passive antenna made of titanium dioxide. These devices look like a sticker though, quite affordable, the price is just about 15$ each, and can be found even cheaper when sold as a set of 6 units.

    Neitroniks are not design to block EMF, rather restructure it, making the field more well organized, and as a consequence it reduces the negative biological effects by 80% to 90%.

    Note that wireless devices that only capable of receiving signal do not contribute to the EMF pollution, while the transmitting devices they are tuned to do.
    Examples of receiving devices:
    • a radio receiver
    • a stand-along GPS unit (the one that does not rely on Wi-Fi and mobile networks)
    • setelite plates for home TV

This is the end of the list of suggestions I have so far.

My thoughts on "having" to have a cellphone around all the time

Personally I don't like having a cellphone, and a few previous years I lived and traveled without using one. During that time I had challenging but interesting situations while finding places in foreign countries and communicating directly with locals (sometimes using body language as a primary language), this spiced up my travel experience.

Unfortunately, tech giants have been changing our lives in a way that we are smoothly forced to have a mobile phone for doing almost everything, even logging in to a great number of email providers these days involves receiving an SMS verification as a mean of "extra security measure" as they call it.

By the way I've known a case at first hand where one unknown person somehow got a duplicate SIM card of a businessman without having any direct contact with him and his phone, after that the perpetrator was able to receive calls and do other activities as is he was a legitimate owner of the phone number.

After all, all those verifications are not as secure as being advertised by the big guys; to me they are rather annoying, making using an increasing number of online services impossible when I am in a foreign country where the SIM card has no service.
