If you do only one thing to increase EMF safety– this is the place to start!
What if I told you that there’s an electromagnetic field (EMF) source in your home so powerful that its exposing you to levels of radiation significantly greater than your cell phone (if you’re still using one :)).
What if I told you that you could easily and cheaply eradicate totally this source of EMFs from your home?
You’ve probably already guessed what I’m talking about. Your cordless phone/s! Research from Sweden concludes that cordless phones raise the risk of getting cancer. After evaluating malignant brain tumor patients’ usage of cell phones vs. their usage of cordless phones, they found cancer risk was multiplied for those who used DECT cordless phones (the type that almost everybody uses when they say “cordless”). Combining the use of cell phones and cordless phones made the risk even higher.
If you’ve already rid your home of cordless phones you can ignore the rest of this message. But if a cordless phone still features in your life in any shape or form, read on….
Initially, when cordless phones first came out they were fairly harmless–they used analog technology. The early ones (known as CT1s) worked on frequencies of 40/50 MHz with power outputs in the 5-25 milliwatt range. The signals were quite low frequency. The power outputs were fairly low. The EMFs were non–pulsed. These phones were soon replaced by digital versions which operated broadly in the 800/900 MHz range. They had “Digital Spread Spectrum” (DSS) technology for better performance. The result: higher frequencies and higher power outputs.
A few years later came digital enhanced cordless phones (DECTs) operating at 2400 MHz – the exact same frequency that your microwave oven uses to “cook” food. Many new cordless phones operate on frequencies of up to 5800 MHz with power outputs up to 250 milliwatts! So the new cordless phones use even higher frequencies with much higher power outputs. They’re so powerful you can comfortably telephone from the other end of the garden, even the other end of your neighbors garden(!), and your line will still be clear as a bell. Check your user manual–many of them proudly boast ranges of 2000 feet or more!.
Power output is detrimental but more so is the fact that the EMFs are pulsed. Pulsed and modulated signals (meaning they have information piggy-backing on the basic waves, causing the signals to be jagged and irregular–a cacophony to the body functions that regularly depend on smooth waves of inter-cell and intra-cell communication.
A rapidly growing number of scientists and other experts are advising against the use of these phones! They continue spewing strong EMF even when not being used!
In 2006 the German Federal Agency for radiation (BFS) issued a report warning of the dangers of DECT phones. Most cell phones are designed to automatically power down – to lower the levels of EMFs being emitted without affecting the operation of the phone. The majority of DECT cordless phones emit at fixed power 24-7, calls or no calls.
