What do Foxes and Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Have in Common?
What Foxes Can Tell us about Electromagnetic Fields
Imagine acres of frozen white, and suddenly a fox diving headlong into a blanket of snow. Hidden under the 3 feet of snow, a field mouse snuggles warm and cozy, safe and protected. Unless the fox is diving using the magnetic compass that all animals use for navigation. It turns out that the red fox is most successful in hunting when using the earth’s magnetic field.
Researchers recorded 592 jumps, and found that when the fox used the North-South axis, jumping from the north, they were successful in 3 out6 of 4 jumps! When they pointed in any other direction, they came up with no mouse in their mouth more than 80% of the time.
As cellphone and WiFi use continues to rise in the United States and throughout the world, so does the risk of electromagnetic field (EMF) sickness. EMF sickness (which is also referred to as “EMF sensitivity”) is a relatively new illness that is garnering a lot of serious attention throughout the medical and public health communities.
It has been repeatedly demonstrated that sources of EMF waves such as cellular towers can have 1,000 times higher radio frequency (RF) exposures to homes and schools than whatever existed just a few decades ago.
You may be asking yourself, “What’s the big deal? I use a cellphone and WiFi all the time.” Continue reading
