As ‘smart’ technology has taken hold in the appliance industry, we now have to own EMF meters to see not only if our tech devices and appliances are emitting wireless radiation, but also, to assess whether or not they have internal wiring errors causing magnetic fields. Many meters only measure one type of EMF, for example, one meter measures magnetic fields, and another meter measures Radio Frequency wireless radiation. If you are interested in purchasing your own meter, contact Safe Living Technologies. If you’d like to purchase the easiest to use, combination meter available, please see the recommendation at the bottom of this post.
We’ve all heard that cell phones emit wireless radiation, but did you know that you may have 10+ additional electrical items in your home that can be emitting the same radiation?
Here are 12 sources of Radio Frequency wireless radiation, that may surprise you!
- Baby monitors – these are huge offenders – never put one near your baby!
- Wireless security systems
- Electric toothbrushes
- Cordless phones
- Playstation components
- Furnaces (they are now building them with wireless sensors)
- Utility meters
- WiFi router
- Bluetooth headsets
The playstation is a really sneaky one. Even if you turn it OFF, it CONTINUES emitting radiation. You have to literally UNPLUG the playstation before it will stop emitting, in many cases!
Even if you’ve gotten rid of your router, or you’ve turned off BOTH wireless signals in your router through the IP address control panel through your browser, your laptop or computer may very well be emitting radiation! You need to turn off the wireless in your computer. On an Apple computer this is very straightforward, but in a PC, it can be a bit trickier. The same goes for your printer – sometimes printers have SEVERAL wireless emitters that need to be turned off.
PLEASE NOTE – If you turn off the wireless on your laptop, and use a shielded, grounded cat6 or cat7 ethernet cable to ‘hard-wire’ your laptop to your router/modem, be aware that you then need to assess the computer area for magnetic and electric fields. I will create another post explaining how to do this in a few weeks. In preparation for remediating these fields, purchase at least one shielded power strip, and an ethernet grounding adaptor. You will need a body voltage test kit (use code CHHOM), in addition to an electric field meter and a magnetic field meter. Depending on the computer and the set up you have, you may also need a USB grounding adaptor.
The only way to know if you’ve disabled all of the wireless antennas in an appliance, or if the appliance is emitting wireless radiation, is to have your own meter.
Instead of buying a large screen TV, buy a large computer monitor. These typically don’t emit any wireless radiation.
Choose non-wireless technologies, and for the items you have no control over (smart utility meters), you can hire an expert to help you shield the radiation coming into your home.
After you Empower Yourself, Hire a Professional if You Find Concerning Levels with Your Meter
Hire a certified building biologist.
The EASIEST combination meter, as explained by Nick Pineault:
The RD10 is extremely small (a real pocket-sized meter, finally!), extremely simple to use, and looks at 3 types of EMFs:
RF: Radiofrequency (also called “microwave radiation”) from cell phones, cell towers, Bluetooth, wifi, etc.
MF: Magnetic fields — emitted near power lines, or near big motors such as the ones you can find at the back of a fridge
EF: Electric fields — emitted by standard household wiring and anything that can be plugged into a wall
At $140, it’s also the cheapest EMF meter for beginners, making it a better choice in my opinion than the Trifield or Cornet ED88T Plus (the updated version I don’t have, which is slightly better).
Here’s what the RD10 is NOT though — and it’s an important key I think I failed to stress enough in my latest videos:
It is NOT a professional grade meter
It will NOT give you very precise numbers
It will NOT tell you for sure that the EMF levels in your home are “safe”
It will NOT detect all sources of EMFs — some types of pulsating signals coming off certain types of wifi technologies or cell towers might be missed
The goal of you having an RD10 is NOT to replace a professional assessment by a certified Building Biologist or Geovital consultant. These guys have extremely precise scientific-level equipment that is essential to assess whether your EMF environment at home is low enough for YOUR current level of sensitivity or current state of health.
The RD10 is what we could call a “sweeping” meter. It should be used to:
RF: Verify whether a wireless device is currently emitting EMFs or not — like I did in THIS video where I identified that my rental car’s Bluetooth was on, and emitting needlessly. I turned the option off and could verify that no more EMFs were emitted.
RF: Have a loose ideas of where the EMF “hotspots” in your home are. You need to move the meter in all directions as this is a “single axis” meter.
MF: Figure out if there is an extremely high source of magnetic fields (such as the back of your neighbor’s fridge on the other side of your bedroom wall) near your pillow.
EF: See if a device is a source of Electrical Fields. As a general rule, anything that is plugged into the wall automatically becomes an important source of EF. This is why I recommend unplugging everything from the walls near your bedside at night, or turning off the circuit breaker to your bedroom altogether.
Help your friends, spouse or any family member realize that this EMF stuff is real — it makes an invisible thing finally visible.
