What is electromagnetic radiation (EMR)?
Electromagnetic radiation (EMR) or sometimes called electrosmog or electrostress is generated by most electrical appliances, electrical cables, transformers, hair dryers (read below), electrical shavers, microwaves, mobile masts, cordless telephones, smart meters and mobile phones as well as electric storage radiators (heaters), electric stove ring, microwave ovens and electric blankets.
Electromagnetic field (ELF) radiation includes household appliances and overhead power lines. Scientists agree that ELF fields are hazardous to human health. It’s considered “possibly carcinogenic,” by WHO organisation and has been linked to cases of childhood leukaemia.
“How much more radiation penetrates your body today, compared to 10 years ago?” the answer is: “Quintillion times more – that is 1 000 000 000 000 000 000 times more!” (18 zeros). Olle Johansson, PhD, Associate Professor in Neuroscience at the Karolinska Institute, Sweden
The most common frequencies of the electromagnetic spectrum include:
• Electric Power 60 Hz
• AM radio 1 MHz
• FM radio 88-108 MHz
• Mobile phones 800-2200 MHz
• Microwave ovens 2450 MHz
• X-rays, more than 1,000,000 MHz
All electromagnetic energy falls somewhere on the electromagnetic spectrum, ranging from extremely low frequency (ELF) radiation to microwaves, x-rays, and gamma rays. It’s a proven fact that at extremely high frequencies, like that of x-rays, the electromagnetic particles have enough power to break chemical bonds and cause serious damage to human tissue. This is known as ionizing radiation.
Since X-rays have the power to damage the genetic material of cells, they can lead to cancer and birth defects—which is why you wear a lead vest during x-rays to protect the surrounding areas from unnecessary damage.
At lower frequencies, such as the microwave range used by mobile phones and base stations, the energy emitted is too low to break chemical bonds (non-ionizing radiation). This is the main staple argument by those who believe that cell phone radiation is completely harmless.
Perhaps the most interesting, and perplexing thing to note here is this: Although extremely low frequencies (ELF’s emitted from appliances and power lines) are known to be carcinogenic, and high levels of radio frequency energy are known to create heat that damages biological tissue, the scientific community is extremely hesitant to attach any kind of danger to the in-between frequencies where cell phones operate.
Generation Zapped is an eye-opening documentary, which reveals that wireless technology poses serious health risks, from infertility to cancer. Through interviews with experts in science and public health, along with people who suffer from high sensitivity to wireless radiation, the film suggests ways to reduce your exposure and protect your family.
It starts with Olle Johansson, PhD, Associate Professor in Neuroscience at the Karolinska Institute, Sweden asking a simple question: “How much more radiation penetrates your body today, compared to 10 years ago?” the answer is: “Quintillion times more – that is 1 000 000 000 000 000 000 times more!” (18 zeros).

What is mobile phone radiation?
Electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation from mobile phones provokes a good deal of controversy. Many experts believe that the radiation is too low-level to cause harm. However, they often base this on an examination of thermal or heat-related effects. The danger from mobile phones is far more likely to originate in the low-intensity pulsed microwave radiation that the phones emit.
What proof is there of harmful effects?
There is now a growing body of evidence (30 000 studies!) showing that long-term exposure to this kind of mobile phone radiation can indeed put your health in danger. Studies have linked mobile phone radiation and other types of radiation to issues like:
• Brain cancer
• Tumour growth on the auditory nerve
• Reduced male fertility
• Increased risk of seizures
• Many other potential problems
Although mobile phone radiation is of low intensity, the oscillatory similarity between this pulsed microwave radiation and certain electrochemical activities within your body raises serious concerns.
Your body is essentially an electromagnetic instrument, controlled by highly complex and orderly oscillatory electrical processes. Each one of these electro-biological processes vibrates at a specific frequency—some of which happen to be close to those used in modern GSM cell phone technology.
The pulsating, low-intensity microwaves from mobile phones can exert subtle, non-thermal influences on the human biology because microwaves are waves. As such, they have properties other than just intensity (which is the part regulated by safety guidelines).
Therefore, much in the same way as a radio can receive interference; your biological processes can be interfered with by the oscillatory aspect of the incoming radiation.
Highly organized electrical processes at the cellular level are especially vulnerable to interference from cell phone radiation because their frequency happens to fall within the microwave range.

Why there is no major epidemic of the effect of radiation?
People ask if there is such an increase in radiation quintillion times more in the past 10 years (that is 1 000 000 000 000 000 000 times more!” – 18 zeros) why there is no epidemic of the negative effects of it. Research suggests that for some people it may take up to 40 years to develop health problems as a result of radiation. There are now almost 30 000 studies on the dangers of radiation.
What you can do to protect yourself from electromagnetic pollution
Some common sense and very practical approaches include:
• Keep your mobile phone use down a much as possible (under 4 min at a time).
• Get a mobile phone with a good speakerphone and ideally always use it. Or use an air-tube headset or Bluetooth headset.
• Keep the phone as far away from your body as possible.
• Switch off wifi for the night – always!
• Restrict your children’s use of cell phones, as no one knows just how severe the health impact may be after a lifetime of exposure.
• Do grounding or earthing yourself on regular bases to detox electro-smog from your body.
• Neutralise dirty electricity from your home and workplace with dirty electricity filters.
• Order Helios3 Now to harmonise the existing EMR in your home and office environments
How can Helios3 protect you from electro-smog?
The Helios3 doesn’t reduce wi-radiation or electromagnetic pollution. Short of living in a metal Faraday cage and shielding yourself completely, there are no devices that can do that, even if you switch off all your electrical devices at home – your neighbours’ wifi and mobile phones masts would reach you and can affect you. But Helios3 counters the negative effects of EMF’s / electro-smog on the body by creating an abundance of Schumann waves/resonance 7.83Hz in your home or workplace where your body naturally tunes into the healthy Earth’s frequency of 7.83Hz instead of electro-smog and reducing the negative effects by the well-known and researched grounding/earthing effect. The mechanism and effect of Helios3 are similar to when people take stable iodine that can help block radioactive iodine from being absorbed by the thyroid gland, thus protecting this gland from radiation injury.
Hairdryers and how to reduce exposure to EMFs radiation from blow dryers
Most hair dryers emit high radiation levels. Don’t use them late in the evening as hair dryers are most dangerous then because the magnetic field produced near your head is enough to shut down your brain’s production of melatonin, which has been acknowledged as a radioprotective anticancer agent and this can also disrupt your sleep cycle. Researchers at the Long Island Power Authority, state that general hair dryers emit EMFs radiation in the following amounts at the following distances:
• 1 inch distance: 60 mG – 200 mG (milliGauss)
• 1 foot distance: .1 mG – 1.5 mG
• 3 foot distance: <.1 mG
So how to protect yourself from radiation from hairdryers:
1) Get a low radiation hairdryer. Google for ‘low radiation hairdryer’ or ‘low emf hairdryer’ to find one that has low radiation levels.
2) Keep the hairdryer at a reasonable distance as the amount of magnetic field radiation emitted from a hairdryer is dramatically reduced with distance, due to the inverse square law of physics (which states that as you double the distance from a source of radiation, you quarter your exposure to it).
3) Towel dry your hair well first, which will reduce the overall time you use your blow dryer and consequently reduce the amount of radiation you’re exposed to.
Electric toothbrushes and water flossers
Using electric toothbrushes or water flossers in the late evening (it’s not critical in the morning) will affect melatonin production which is fundamental to good sleep and overall health.
Melatonin production is affected by:
2) electro-smog (wifi radiation)
Melatonin (N-acetyl-5-methoxy tryptamine) is a hormone produced by the pineal gland in humans to regulate sleep and wakefulness. Melatonin is considered a master hormone which also regulates the immune system and is a powerful antioxidant and radioprotective anticancer agent.
Ideally, don’t have a microwave oven. Standing a foot away from your microwave oven while it’s running can expose you to upwards of 400 milliGauss (a mere 4 milliGauss has been firmly linked to leukaemia). Most microwave oven leak radiation. Don’t let children stand near the microwave when it’s working and of course avoid it yourself as much as possible – especially if you’re pregnant.

Dirty electricity (DE) are high-frequency voltage spikes (transients) caused by plugging electrical devices into the mains supply. Dirty electricity is a by-product of modern electronic equipment and appliances, such as computers, refrigerators, plasma TVs, WiFi routers, smart meters, Sky boxes, DVD players, video recorders, set-top boxes, compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), solar panels and dimmer switches – all of which corrupt the electricity they use. Dirty electricity can also enter home and offices through wiring from nearby sources, including your neighbours’ WiFi, TV antennas or nearby mobile phone base stations (transmitters) connected to the power grid. Dirty electricity is also known as dirty mains, dirty power, or electrical pollution that describes the problem of electromagnetic noise on the mains wiring of houses. More on dirty electricity
