Free Radical Damage – What can you do?

Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) can damage the body— but there are ways to protect your home and your family.

Electromagnetic fields are present in every home and building, to some extent or other. They are generated by powerlines, meter boxes, electrical wiring, transformers, electrical appliances and sometimes by conductive pipes. Higher frequency electromagnetic fields, also called radiofrequency radiation, are emitted by all wireless devices: mobile and cordless phones, phone towers, modems, tablets, baby monitors, microwave ovens, as well as smart devices such as TVs and electricity meters.

In short, we’re surrounded by them.

Exposure to these fields, even at levels present in many homes, have been linked with childhood leukemia, brain tumors and sperm damage.  The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified these fields as possible carcinogens. Other problems linked to exposure include headaches, sleep problems, concentration and memory problems, digestive problems, pain, heart palpitations and irritability.[1]

Electromagnetic fields damage the body by triggering oxidative stress. This is generated during the process of converting food to energy and results in the production of free radicals. Exposure to EMFs also reduces levels of glutathione, catalase and superoxide dismutase—three components of the body’s defence system that protect against free radical damage. [2]

Oxidative stress causes a range of harmful effects on the body, including damage to cell membranes, changes to enzymes and gene expression, and DNA damage, which, in sperm, may lead to infertility. It can cause the death of neurons, leading to neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis and epilepsy. It can also cause sleep disorders, arthrosclerosis, loss of appetite, diabetes, dizziness, rheumatoid arthritis, cardiovascular disease, nausea and stroke.2

So taking action to protect against free radical damage from EMFs makes sense.

Here’s what you can do.

Firstly, you can reduce the levels of electromagnetic fields and radiofrequency radiation in your home. The only reliable way to do that is to measure your home to find out what fields are actually present. (It’s not just the sources that you can see that generate them.) You can do that by hiring our Home Test Kit (http://www.emraustralia.com.au/shop/meters-testing/home-office-test-kit-hire-1) or talk to EMR Australia about having your home measured by a consultant.

Secondly, you can reduce your personal exposure to EMFs. Don’t hold a mobile phone or other wireless device against your body, use a shielded mobile phone case, use laptop protection, or wear protective shielding clothing.

Thirdly, you can help counteract the harmful effects of EMF exposure by taking antioxidants. Several studies have shown that the detrimental effects of oxidation were prevented by taking antioxidants such as vitamin E, folate and melatonin.2

Precautions like these may make a great difference to how you feel. Why not give them a try?

IARC to Review RF

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has decided to review the evidence for carcinogenicity of radiofrequency radiation. At a meeting on March, 29 scientists from 18 countries identified these fields as one of the priority issues to be considered during 2020-2024. A report will be released once the review has been completed. In 2011 IARC classified radiofrequency radiation as a Class 2B (possible) carcinogen and further evidence of carcinogenicity has been found since that time. [3]

5G Update—Geneva

Swiss parliamentarians have called for a moratorium on the rollout of 5G technologies. MPs from Geneva voted 58 to 29 in favour of asking the World Health Organisation to conduct independent scientific studies on the effects of radiation from 5G frequencies. ‘The environment will be increasingly loaded with magnetic waves, and no one knows if their accumulation is harmful to health’, said signatory Bertrand Buchs.[4]

5G Update—Vaud

The Swiss canton of Vaud had adopted a resolution calling for a moratorium on the installation of 5G antennas until it receives the results of a study by the Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN). In speaking to the motion, Greens politician Raphael Maham said that renowned scientists have issued warnings about the health risks of 5G. The moratorium was approved by 95 votes to 9.[5]

Mobile Phones—Brain Damage

Mobile phone radiation had a harmful effect on the brains of rats in a study conducted in Turkey. Researchers exposed rats to radiofrequency radiation at different frequencies (900 MHz, 1800 MHz, 2100 MHz) for two hours a day for six months. Compared to unexposed rats, the brains of exposed rats had more damage. The researchers concluded that mobile phone radiation ’may cause oxidative damage, induce increase in lipid peroxidation, and increase oxidative DNA damage …in the frontal lobe of the rat brain.’ They also said it could cause DNA breaks.[6]

Mobiles and Headaches

Turkish scientists investigated the impacts of heavy use of smart phones on 124 migraine patients in a Neurology Clinic of a private hospital. The found that overuse of smart phones was related to poor quality of sleep and daytime tiredness. They also found that the greater the use of smart phones, the less the quality of sleep and the poorer quality of life the patients reported.[7]

Mobiles and Thyroid

A new review by Iranian researchers has found that mobile phone radiation can have potentially harmful effects on the thyroid gland and thyroid hormones. The researchers found evidence that exposure changed levels of T3 and T4 hormones and altered levels of thyroid stimulating hormone. Several studies showed histological changes in the thyroid gland, such as changes to cell volume. They suggested that mobile phone radiation may impair the thyroid gland’s uptake of iodine.[8]

Mobiles and blood

A review of relevant studies found that mobile phone radiation produced a range of harmful effects on blood cells. The authors suggested, ‘Exposure to EMF results in deterioration of RBCs function and metabolic activity, it was expected that, the increase of toxicity in specific organs was a result of the RBCs functional failure. Therefore, changes in antioxidants may be due to the deterioration in cellular membrane properties in the liver. In addition to increase toxicity in different organs.’[9]
