EMF Health Effects

Over the past two decades, we have witnessed the digitization of the world, due to the explosion of mobile electronic devices and increased wireless networks and data. Our extended use of these devices, coupled with how close they are to our bodies most of the day, exposes us to increased levels of Electromagnetic Frequency Radiation (EMF). 

Many studies have revealed a link between the use of these types of technological devices and various forms of illness, due to a breakdown at the cellular level and interference in cell communication.

The effects are linked to chronic disease states, ADHD, Tinnitus, insomnia, Autism, Cancer, mental illnesses like depression, Alzheimer’s and Dementia, and problems related to focus, memory, and attentiveness. EMF studies have repeatedly shown gene mutations and DNA fragmentation, which can cause cell mutation and cancer. Children are particularly at risk from EMF exposure, because a child’s body absorbs more EMF than an adult’s and is still developing.

The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) believes we need to do a better job at understanding these adverse biological health effects. They have documented genetic damage, reproductive defects, cancer, neurological degeneration and nervous system dysfunction, immune system dysfunction, and many visible body symptoms.

Below, we’ve listed 10 different impacts of EMF radiation coming from electronic devices, ranging from personal biological effects to effects on public health and the environment.

Health Effects of EMF Radiation

DefenderShield Icon Health Effects Sleep

SLEEP

EMF and Blue Light can mess up your Melatonin production and lower the amount and quality of restful sleep. Coffee, anyone?

DefenderShield Icon Health Effects Fertility

Fertility 

The heat from a laptop can kill sperm, but did you know that EMF radiation can damage sperm integrity, hormones, cells, and their DNA, promoting infertility in both men & women? These changes can also affect the development of a fetus.

DefenderShield Icon Health Effects Cognitive Development

developmental impacts 
on kids

From before birth through young adulthood, children are more susceptible to the effects of EMF and technology, and this can lead to several developmental and biological impairments.

DefenderShield Icon Health Effects Cognitive Physiological Changes

Cognitive and Physiological changes

EMF can affect our endocrine, nervous, and immune systems, by creating oxidative stress in tissues and organs that keep our body in a healthy balance. EMF interrupts these body processes, making us feel foggy, irritable, depressed, and even ill.

DefenderShield Icon Health Effects Skin

skin conditions

The largest organ of the body, our skin can be significantly impacted by EMF frequencies, especially 5G. Different frequencies of EMF energy can create Toasted Skin Syndrome, burns and rashes, tingling hands, and premature skin aging.

DefenderShield Icon Health Effects Tinnitus

tinnitus

Tinnitus, classified as a “ringing-in-the-ears”, is when sound is perceived without being present. Having an electronic device close to your ear might be sending electromagnetic frequencies into your ear that can stimulate false auditory signals.

DefenderShield Icon Health Effects Cell Damage

cell damage and mutation

Cell damage and mutation can lead to cancer, a potentially life-changing illness. But can EMF radiation really cause it? Statistically significant data from big studies are showing yes, it can.

DefenderShield Icon Health Effects EHS Radiation

EHS/radiation sickness

Chronic exposure to EMF radiation, coupled with a vulnerable or deficient immune system, can lead to Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome, or EHS. This can cause anything from headaches & tingling hands to full-body functional impairment.

DefenderShield Icon Health Effects Environment

Environment

It’s not just about our health. Just as the industrial revolution created a now-irreversible impact on our plants, animals, and planet, the digital revolution is looking to do the same.

DefenderShield Icon Health Effects Public Safety

Public Safety Concerns

Aside from the health effects of EMF emissions coming from our devices, other concerns are present, such as hacking wireless data and interrupting weather forecasting frequencies.
