“What happens when we, 24 hours around the clock, wherever we are, allow ourselves and our children to be used as guinea-pigs, whole-body-irradiated by new, man-made electromagnetic fields for the rest of our lives?”
This was a question posed years ago by Dr. Olle Johansson, an associate professor in the Department of Neuroscience at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, though it’s more relevant today than ever before.
Dr. Johansson was an outspoken early advocate demanding that electronic devices that emit electromagnetic frequencies, or EMFs — such as small appliances like cell phones, laptops, and WiFi signals — be tested for any potential EMF risks they may pose to human health.
Unfortunately, his questions went mostly unanswered, as electronics manufacturers, tech lobbyists, and our politicians have put profits before safety, plowing ahead to develop new and ever-more invasive devices without first fully understanding their long-term effects.
Exposure to laptop radiation, for example, can result in numerous physiological symptoms even after a relatively short duration. One study in 2012 noted decreased sperm viability in men after only four hours of laptop-level WiFi exposure.
Other studies have linked cordless phone radiation with EMF sensitivity symptoms like chronic headache, fatigue, decreased concentration levels, and even certain types of cancer (click for more info on the wide list of issues). Many of the potential problems may not show up until much later, EMF exposure effects are cumulative, just like smoking – you might not have a problem today, but years of use can be another story and we don’t even know yet what all the implication will be.
One of the most notable studies to date comes from the American National Toxicology Program (NTP), which has been studying EMF risks in lab rats for over a decade. The NTP released some of the results of their study earlier this year — before the experiment was fully completed — because the results were so compelling. They found that rats exposed to wireless mobile devices for two years had an increased incidence aggressive brain tumors (gliomas) and malignant heart tumors (schwannomas) compared to the control group, which was not exposed to any EMF radiation.
Even if the tech companies and the global politicians won’t admit it, many consumers are taking EMF safety precautions into their own hands.

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!
