THIS WEEK'S READING
How much “dirty” electricity and radiation are you absorbing in your home and workplace and what are the consequences
by Anand Wells, Live Food Education
Over the past week we have been measuring the level of electromagnetic pollution in our home, work and also in our bodies with a multimeter and guassmeter. The results have been been quite mind-blowing to say the least!
Human beings have evolved over hundreds of thousands of years in harmony with the Earth’s natural EMF (Electro-magnetic frequency) of about 0.5 of a milligauss. Until the advent of manmade electricity in the home and workplace (less than 100 years ago for most areas), our exposure to EMF’s was minimal. Fast-forward 100 years and nearly all of us are being exposed to massive doses of (in some areas up to 100,000 times the level) of EMF’s that we have not naturally evolved with. Usually it takes the human body hundreds of years if not millenia to adapt to even small changes in the environment. Could such a sudden and drastic change be harming our health or even killing us?
While governments and coorporations who profit from selling EMF producing technology will always be the last to admit that there is a problem, new research is linking a wide range of illnesses including certain cancers and sleep disorders to EMF pollution.
I personally choose to err on the side of caution and protect my family as much as possible from the harmful effects of EMF pollution for the same reason that I buy organic food and use non-toxic personal care and cleaning products. Exposure to both toxic chemicals and EMF radiation is insidious and accumulative. You generally can’t see it, smell it or feel it however, once you reach a critical threshold (which will differ from person to person depending on your immune system) often many years later, you may find yourself with an “incureable” degenerative disease such as cancer.
So back to the experiments measuring EMF’s at my home. First I went into the backyard to get as far away from the houses electrical field as possible. Using a $30 multimeter I measured the electrical current in my body while standing barefoot on the grass. It was a very low .004 volts. I then put on my insulated rubber soled sandles and got the same reading. Clearly there was not much electrical interference happening in my body. I then went to the front yard and stood beneath the powerlines 10 or so metres above. My body voltage with rubber soled sandals was over 1 volt – that is a 250 x increase caused by “dirty” electricity coming off the powerlines. I then went barefoot on the grass and my voltage dropped back to to .004 of a volt.
Next I moved inside to my office and sat at my desk. My body voltage was over 1 volt. I then put the tip of my little finger on to an earthed Earthing Mousepad and my voltage dropped dramatically to 0.09 of a volt. When I placed my whole hand on the Earthing Mousepad my voltage dropped still further to .06 of a volt. I tried this again placing both my bare feet on an Earthing Universal Mat – this time my voltage went even lower to .04 of a volt. The more contact I had with an Earthed product the lower my voltage dropped.
Next I went upstairs and measured my voltage unearthed. It was a whopping 12 volts in the living room and 15 volts in our bedroom. Being up just one level in a building increased the voltage in my body by more than 10 times!! By lying on my Fitted Earthing Bed Sheet (available in King, Queen, Double or Single) I was able to bring my voltage back down to 0.2 of a volt. I also discovered that I still got Earthed even when I sat on the bed sheet with clothes on, though not as much as when I had skin contact.
After seeing the high level of voltage in my body, particulary upstairs, I went and fitted our lounge chairs with Univerals mats (with cover) and put a Earthing Single Fitted Sheet on our couch beneath the cover.
I love my gadgets and am not prepared to give up modern living to escape EMF’s altogether, and it is great news that you can discharge excess voltage and receive the benefits of the Earth's natural negative ions through the Barefoot Earthing range of products.
If you are concerned about the health implications of EMF’s and would like to learn how to test your home for “Dirty” electricity and other EMF’s, I am in the process of making a series of “how to” videos on this subject. Stay tuned in and stay grounded!
