Myth #1-"There are electro-magnetic fields everywhere...there is nothing I can do about it." Not true. There are literally dozens of solutions to significantly reduce radiation exposure. Yes, these bio-risk radiation fields are prevalent, however you can choose to "overpower" them with knowledge, common sense and a few simple but effective solutions.
Myth #2- "Yeah but fixing it is too expensive and too much work." Nope! The vast majority of effective solutions are low or no cost and require very little effort. Example: Instead of having an electric digital clock (high emitters) 2 feet from your pillow, move it to a range of 4 feet or use a battery powered clock.
Myth #3- "I cut down on my cell phone use so everything is fine." Kuddos! A great start! Cell phones work fine with power output many times lower than what they are designed to emit. There are simple ways to reduce exposure levels by 80% to 98%.
Myth #4- "RF and microwave radiation are the only EMF bio-risks." I wish it were so. The magnetic fields produced by many electrical appliances penetrate solid objects even more thoroughly than microwaves although at a lesser range. The potential damage to cells and DNA are well documented and just as potent. Because these emitters are so prevalent in our lives many EMR specialists view them as the #1 concern. Once again a little knowledge regarding emitting devices will result in high exposure reduction percentages.
Myth #5-"What are we supposed to do... go back to the 18th Century?" Progress marches on. Implementing technologies for their own sake, at the expense of our health and financial well being, is probably not real progress. We are a creative species and are continually solving problems. However, awareness must come first... the wheels of real progress can turn slowly. Until then we can choose to live wisely with technology.
Myth #6-"I'm having a hard time believing that this could happen?" Reviewing industry’s past record of slow response and obfuscation in regards to public health concerns surrounding DDT, asbestos, tobacco, trans-fats, dioxin, and more, may offer insight into the effectiveness of the strategy of sowing doubt and controversy—until enough people wake up.
