Why the concern?
The 20th century has heralded the age of Electrosmog/ electro-magnetic pollution which is the most significant form of pollution human activity has produced this century, even more dangerous because it is invisible and impalpable.
No matter where you live, you will always be exposed to electromagnetic radiation from some source or the other.In a developing economy like ours it will take a while for this realization to dawn. The need of the hour is to safeguard our health, family and our future from this web of electromagnetic radiation. Reducing EMF radiation outages requires a combination of lifestyle changes & applications of solutions where ever required.
EMF Radiation is a natural by-product of electrical and wireless systems. Electrical sources include TV, Refrigerator, Motors, Radios and even house Wiring. Different forms of wireless radiation include WiFi, Cellphone radiation. It also includes radiation from Microwave cookers
Cell phones, wi-Fis, smart TVs, laptops, electric generators, invertors, power units, stabilizers are the most common sources of EMF Radiation
Cell phone towers can cause brain tumours, brain cancers and seizures, paralysis, psychosis and stroke. Exposure to cell phone towers for prolonged time can give a consistent pattern of increased risk for brain cancer
Health risks of EMF radiation include brain tumours, headaches, chronic fatigue and insomnia, dizziness and anxiety, DNA damage, cognitive impairment in children, cancer including breast and skin, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, infertility and decreased sperm count and more.
Ideally everyone, but infants, children, the elderly, pregnant women, and people with compromised immune systems are more vulnerable to health effects from radiation exposure than healthy adults.
Children are more susceptible to EMR related health hazards. Research shows that radiation penetrates more deeply into a child’s head due to their thinner skulls. In fact, it was found that a child’s growing body may absorb up to 10 times the radiation an adult’s body absorbs.
Research has shown that cell phone radiation-exposed human sperm die three times faster, swim significantly more poorly, become more deformed, and develop significantly more damage to their DNA
A developing foetus is the most vulnerable to the effects of radiation exposure. Therefore, women in pregnancy are also at high risk – exposure to electro-magnetic fields in uterus is correlated with health problems such as ADHD, emotional problems, asthma, obesity and possibly Autism Spectrum Disorders in the offspring.
Yes. EMF Radiation has been declared as a cancer-causing agent by World Health Organization in 2011
The microwaves from cell phone towers can interfere with your body’s own functions, causing a variety of potential health problems including headaches, memory loss, cardiovascular stress, low sperm count, birth defects and cancer etc.
Yes. Safety is always mutually inclusive of costs. A cheaper mobile would be a compromise on quality of PCB, batteries, Antenna’s, transmitters and receivers. Also, most of these devices don’t conform to certifications and SAR ratings.
Use desk phone as much as possible. The EMR exposure in desk phones is negligible. Also, if you have to use cell phone, use it for short duration calls. Incase you must use a cell phone for a long duration call, use a handsfree, preferably wired again.
It is not the technology that causes radiation. 4G in India is being launched in 1800/2300 MHz frequency bands. These frequency bands inherently provide low efficiency, low carpet area networks. Therefore beaming at higher power per BTS to meet unit customer demand makes more sense commercially and magnify radiation.
The WiFi is nothing but a miniature cell phone tower – radiation at a lower rate. However, our proximity to the WiFi device exposes us to high EMR for longer periods. If it is possible, consider distancing yourself from the WiFi station and consider using wired internet over WiFi.
Radiation audit is a risk assessment exercise that helps identify exposure risks from EMF / EMR in your home or work place
All solutions are determined basis radiation audit that helps identify radiation exposure risks in your home or work place. Basis the type of radiation i.e. cell tower or appliance or electrical source related radiation, the most cost effective solution is deployed.
The amount of shielding that you will achieve depends on many factors, including the measure of radiation in your premise, the shielding solution properties and characteristics, premise profile and area required for shielding and shielding objective. Normally we provide shielding plans to cover an area that extends at least to the threshold line of safe exposures.
Premise audits are a must to ascertain the EMF radiation intensity in the premise. Unless this base line activity is conducted, solution planning and deployment are out of scope. Pre and post assessment helps determine the effectiveness of the shielding.
