Welcome to the World
Electro-smog in short
Anywhere technical implements or supply lines are under electrical tension, fields of alternating induction are created as soon as electric current flows. Nowadays high frequency fields of induction exist everywhere, it is almost impossible to screen these fields off and to avoid them is becoming more and more difficult.
There are many sources which cause such induction fields. Any electrical domestic implement within your own household emits its own field of induction while in use. These fields vary in strength as well as in different ranges of frequencies. In addition to this, there are varying fields of induction originating from the environment such as high tension power lines, transformer stations, electrical installations on the roof of your house, electrical connections to the house, large technical installations, as well as weather-dependent radiation (Sferics) and radiation caused by radio waves, television, telephones etc.
The effect of this influence depends on the nature of different kinds of fields (electric or magnetic fields where one has to differentiate between DC - fields, analogous alternating fields, digital alternating fields and impulse digital alternating fields), the field strength (in volts per meter [V/m] Nano-Teslar [nT], respectively; the frequency (16 2/3 Hz, 50 Hz, high frequency), the direction of the body towards the field and the time of exposure (few minutes, the whole day, during the sleep phase, etc.)
After a compilation of all studies, one can say that electro smog causes a very high risk to human beings exposed to it. The risk of contracting cancer as well as to suffer from psychological ailments increases. It is rather remarkable that relatively low intensity fields (as from 100 nT), which cause no harm during a short term exposure, will become dangerous if such fields permanently exist in the vicinity.
From experience gathered over many years, working with relaxation and meditation groups, aimed at the reduction of stress syndromes, it was found that such a reduction of stress improves and plays an important role to strengthen the individuals' resistance through a build-up of a deep inner relaxation of tension. (This goes as well to achieve a higher resistance to very low doses of various other every day environmental toxins).
All these findings should not lead us to believe that there are not individuals, where it has been proven beyond any doubt, that due to the interaction of different environmental conditions such as electro smog have become seriously ill. Unfortunately, at present, there are no real efforts being made, either from the side of natural healers or from the traditional scientific medical profession to effectively help such people.
Finally, look at consumers with a very low energy consumption, which however are powered by tension adapters (mini transformers) such as radio alarm clocks battery chargers, etc.
As a general rule you should remember that the more of such consumers are run at the same time and the longer your body is exposed to such units, the more critical it becomes and the more seriously such units should be evaluated.
Here are some examples: (the appliances currently present in your household may differ substantially from the stated values), that you may find in an assumed household:
This list could be continued ad infinitum, especially when adding all the times spent in your car, in trams or railway carriages, at your place of work etc. You should try at some time to make a protocol, taking into consideration all the above mentioned points and you will be surprised at the result.
Cure and Prevention
Another solution to create an electro smog free zone within the sleeping and living area of your house is the installation of a so called mains isolating switch which can be controlled either manually or by infrared signal. To switch off the current by isolating the fuse is also practical but cumbersome. Should you decide to install such a mains isolating switch, we would recommend the use of a model which isolates two phases like the Voegele SS 16-3 or the Nefa 16 plus. You may order these switches directly from the relevant trade outlets for electrical hardware. Especially where the house wiring is of an older age, it has been proven that a two phase mains isolating switch is far more effective because such a switch does not only isolate the current but also the back flow tension and peak oscillations. Mains isolating switches, controlled by infrared, together with remote controls are for instance available from the Conrad Electronic Company. In both cases it is advisable to insert into your wall plug a special night light so as to have a permanent control that the mains isolating switch is working. Another possibility is to have all the wiring and wall plugs within the living and sleeping areas of your house screened and the wires inside the conduit pipes spun twisted. If the additional cost to you for such work is of no importance you may have the whole house done this way.
There is one thing one should not forget that in the meantime there is hardly any place where you are not exposed to electro smog. Wherever your cellular telephone and your wireless telephone are in operation, where there are antennas and other technical installations you can be sure that you are subjected to high frequency electro smog radiation.
The effect of these waves seem, if they have a low frequency pulse, to be much stronger than the ones of classical analogue pulse systems. Such waves are radiated by cellular telephones in the D net and E net as well as some wireless household telephones.
Research has shown that EEG-values (brain current measurements) show strange wave patterns even after a long time has passed since using a cellular telephone last. Hereby it is irrelevant if you or your neighbor has been using such a cellular telephone.
Should it be that you cannot dispense with or be unable to do away with all the above mentioned, such as an electrical bed adjustment, air-conditioners or alarm devices, the actual radiation of all these implements should be measured to find the real load values and to be able to arrive at alternative solutions to protect yourself as much as possible.
Even though every expert opinion has critics and different interpretations or that another expert opinion will say exactly the opposite, prevention is still better than waiting till the damage has already occurred or that the legislation of our Government will at last decide on, and consistently enforce laws which have already existed in other countries exist for a long time already.
For instance the permitted maximum radiation values for micro wave ovens in the former USSR are much lower than here, PC - monitors sold in Sweden are subjected to much more stringent radiation rules (MPR-III), and the building of schools or kindergartens below high tension lines has been against the law in other countries for a long time already (in our country it is only a recommendation and not a law).
