The development of specific diseases from electromagnetic exposure starts with subtle shifts in your body — many you may not even notice or attribute to EMFs.
Yet research has confirmed that EMFs contribute to many diseases. Here are just some of the documented ways:
- 1Cataracts — The development of cataracts (in the capsule of the eye rather than the membrane surrounding the lens, where age-related cataracts tend to form) are linked to low-grade microwave frequencies.
- 2Leaky gut and inflammatory bowel diseases (such as Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis) — EMFs compromise the integrity of your intestinal tract, allowing toxins and foreign proteins to enter your bloodstream, which can lead to chronic inflammation and contribute to arthritis, heart disease, autoimmune conditions and brain toxin overload.
- 3The leaching of mercury from “silver” or amalgam fillings — Radiation from a cell phone can heat pockets of saliva in your mouth, creating “hot spots” that cause the mercury in the amalgam to leak and readily enter your brain.
- 4Increased toxic load in your brain — Your blood-brain barrier protects your brain from toxins, pollutants, viruses and bacteria, but EMF exposure can actually poke holes in that barrier.
- 5Neurodegenerative diseases (such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease) — When your brain’s calcium channels are overactivated, excess free radicals can damage brain and nerve cells.
- 6Cancer (including brain cancer, breast cancer and childhood leukemia) — One of the probable links between EMFs and cancer is the increase in oxidative stress and its contribution to mitochondrial dysfunction, a major cause of DNA damage and cancer.
- 7Cardiac arrhythmias — Your heart has one of the highest densities of calcium channels and is therefore highly sensitive to EMFs, which can trigger a fast or slow or irregular heartbeat.
- 8Blood pressure problems — Using a cell phone can lead to a 5 –10 milligram Hg rise in blood pressure.
- 9Neuropsychiatric illnesses (such as anxiety, depression, hostility and difficulty concentrating) – Like your heart, your brain also has a high density of calcium channels and a high sensitivity to EMFs. EMFs can upset the delicate balance of your neurotransmitters and affect mood, sleep, memory and mental health.
- 10 Infertility — A man’s genitals have a very high density of calcium channels that make them sensitive to EMFs. Exposure to wireless radiation reduces sperm mobility, total sperm count, viability and quality.
