Almost any electrical device, such as your cell phone or any other wireless device radiates certain amount of radio frequency or electromagnetic energy. In case you wear a fitness tracking device on your wrist all day long, it could make you more prone to the harmful radiation effects.
Here Are the Health Risks of Electromagnetic Radiation:
– Increases Your Risk of Developing Cancer
Many studies have proven that the non-ionizing radiation from wireless trackers could contribute to cancer development. In addition, the International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies them as “possibly carcinogenic to humans”. Scientists in the field of the biological effects of wireless technologies and electromagnetic frequencies think that cell phones and other wireless devices can elevate the risk of cancer and many other health issues, from dementia and heart irregularities to impaired fertility and diabetes.
– Elevates Your Exposure to Heavy Metals
Heavy metals found in the brain also serve as micro-antennas by concentrating and elevating EMF radiation reception. All types of amalgam tooth fillings and metal implants can greatly raise microwave reception. In addition, the mircrocurrents from cell phones and any other ambient field can also increase microwave reception.
A former president of the Bioelectromagnetics Society and a Special Lecturer at Columbia University in the Department of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics, Martin Blank, conducted research suggesting that electromagnetic fields may damage the DNA and cells by stimulating cellular stress responses.
– Contributes to Dementia
Many studies have been done in a lab to examine what really happens when subjects are exposed to the radiation of cell phones. It has been found that electromagnetic radiation could result in dementia symptoms. Subjects experienced damaged DNA that could lead to cancer. That’s not all, the results also showed that neurons in the brain experienced damage associated with memory loss and reduced learning capabilities.
– Raises Your Likelihood of Many Health Problems
Health problems associated with exposure to electromagnetic radiation include many types of cancer, sleep disorders, neurological conditions, depression, cognitive problems, ADD, autism, elevated permeability of the blood-brain barrier, and DNA damage. Furthermore, they also include stress, metabolism changes, immune system disorders, hormone disruption, cardiovascular irregularities, mineral disruption, and fertility impairment.
It is recommended to minimize your exposure to electromagnetic radiation in order to reduce your risk of the above mentioned health problems.
