Today, entertainment is no farther than a tablet or phone. Games, email and other internet sites will amuse us for hours. The only, and it’s a big ONLY, DOWNSIDE is that all of these devices are emitting large amounts of EMF – electromagnetic radiation. Many doctors are now recommending EMF Blockers and other steps to improve laptop safety.
What is EMF and why would you want an EMF blocker?
EMF stands for Electromagnetic Frequencies, but in the popular jargon, it means the harmful electromagnetic radiation that comes from WiFi, cell towers, computers and all electronic or battery operated devices. Over the last several decades, researchers have found links between ongoing EMF exposure and several negative effects. Smart meters have notoriously affected some people quite dramatically.
Nearly everyone, every day, is exposed to large amount of EMF. Most people have no physical symptom that informs them their body is being affected by EMF. Yet, in recent decades, we’ve seen a rise in brain tumors, autism, auto-immune diseases and milder symptoms like fatigue and headaches. Why risk these potential problems when you can simply arm yourself with EMF blockers?
Safety Tip #1 Dampen the Radiation with EMF Blocker Spray
Dampen the radiation with an Aegis Guard Radiation Shield Plant-Based Spray. (Image shown at the top of the blog.)
Simply spray your table, phone, monitor or any electronic device with this fragrance-free plant-based oil EMF anti-radiation spray. It is sprayed on, lightly spread around with a cotton cloth, left to dry, and will be ready to use in a couple of hours.(You let it stay wet when you have lightly wiped with the cloth -it WILL dry in time!)
Protection lasts for about a month or more before you need to reapply. The more the screen is touched, the sooner the spray has to be reapplied, but at least you know you’ve greatly reduced the EMF effect. It’s a small price to pay for protection.
Safety Tip #2 – Cover your lap with an EMF Blocker Blanket
If you’re traveling, there is a wonderful, small, EMF-anti-radiation “blanket” that can be stuffed in a pack, large purse or carry-on. You lay it over your lap and all radiation from the device is neutralized.
I’ve even placed it on my lap and had enough left over to drape it over my small dog to protect him if he’s sitting with me on an extended Lazy-boy. In this photo, the blanket is on top of my husband’s lap as well as covering our dog, Buddy. We often just drape the blanket over him and he’s just fine with this since he’s napping, a favorite occupation of his. (see photo to the right)
Safety Tip #3 Use an EMF Blocker Pad for Tablet and Laptop Safety
Place the pad between you and your lap, and you’re good to go!
Designed by 3 M.I.T. graduate engineering students, the hard pad looks a bit like thick masonite or a corian counter top (but it’s super thin). It contains several layers of EMF deflecting material. I’ve used one of these pads for 6 years under my laptop and it certainly gives me peace of mind to know I’m not radiating my pelvic area!
Safety Tip# 4 Distance is key if you don’t use the above EMF blocker
Is there a safe way to use these devices? If you keep the laptop 8” away from your body, you’ve lowered the amount of radiation you’ll receive. Use your tablet or laptop sitting at a desk, table or counter to improve laptop safety. Just because it’s called a laptop, doesn’t mean you should actually use it On your lap.

Safety Tip#5 Full Body Protection – the Ultimate EMF Blocker!
We recommend the above 4 EMF blockers as wonderful EMF blockers for electronics and to improve your laptop safety. However, just blocking your individual device does not handle the WiFi signals we’re all surrounded by 24/7.
Our final recommendation is to consider wearing full-body protection in the form of a EMF Protection Shield. The Shield provides not only laptop safety, but general protection from EMF radiation.
To find out what level of protection you need, take a free online EMF Protection quiz. More than 4,000 people have already taken this quiz since it was published in early 2016.

P.S. If you or your children have ADD/ADHD, SPD, ASD, we encourage you to take the quiz for them. Many of these kids are sensitive to EMF and it can make their symptoms worse.
Many people who are sensitive to other energies – people, crowds, public places also have a sensitivity to EMF. Sometimes these people are known as HSP, Highly Sensitive People. It’s estimated that 1 in 5 people have this special awareness.
We are fortunate to have a professional quiz designer who has worked with us to create another quiz for the Highly Sensitive Person. Feel free to take both quizzes. Thousands of people have already done so, and shared that the information was quite useful to them. If you finish each quiz and click through to the site, you’ll receive even more information!
