Do you know which smartphones emit dangerously high levels of radiation?
From Germany’s Federal Office for Radiation Protection, the number one offender is the 2020 Motorola Edge, emitting almost 1.80 watts per kilogram. Other phones on the list include the Google Pixel 6, Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, and iPhone 13 Pro.
Of course, even if you don’t own any of these gadgets, it’s still good to be careful with electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure, especially if you suspect you’re EMF sensitive. The question is, how does one know if they’re sensitive to EMF? Let’s talk about that here, plus tips on how you can reduce your exposure to harmful EMF radiation.
Are You EMF Sensitive?
The short answer is yes.
That’s because, with prolonged exposure, anyone can be sensitive to EMF. The better question is, “How hypersensitive am I to EMF?”
After all, some people experience symptoms of EMF sensitivity within a day of EMF exposure. Experts call this condition EHS or electromagnetic hypersensitivity.
Speaking of symptoms, the most commonly reported include headaches, anxiety, nausea, and body pain. Some people with EHS also experience ringing in the ear (tinnitus) and heart arrhythmia. If you have these symptoms of EMF sensitivity, the best way to confirm your condition is to go on an “EMF vacation.”
Why Go on an EMF Vacation
An EMF vacation is similar to digital detox. You go to a place where you can get 100% unplugged, meaning no cell phones or electronics.
If your symptoms improve, it’s worth considering you may have EHS. Now, if going on an EMF vacation is something you can’t do right now, you can try getting rid of EMF sources in your home and office.
Monitor your symptoms over a week or more if possible. If you stop experiencing common EHS symptoms, you may conclude your EMF sensitivity is real and that it’s time to take steps for your health.
How to Reduce Your Exposure to EMF
Keeping your distance from appliances is one of the best ways to reduce exposure to EMF radiation. For example, if you’re microwaving something, don’t linger next to it—also, advise your kids and other people in your home to do the same.
Besides not staying close to appliances, it also helps to limit your cellphone/tablet usage. At night, it’s best to put the gadgets away in another room. When you need to go out, don’t carry your phone in your pocket and put it in a bag or briefcase.
As for reducing EMF exposure to your head, it would be best to use earbuds or turn on your phone’s speakerphone function when on a call. Lastly, you can search here to learn about items that provide effective EMF protection.
