There are several types of radiation but one which you may not often hear about is RF radiation. “RF” stands for radio frequency and this kind of pollution manifests itself as something that you can actually see when you are aware of the telltale signs of its presence in your household. Upon plugging in an electronic gadget into your current supply, you can see something on your television screen which looks like jagged lines. These lines can be so severe depending on the condition of your devices that the resulting jagged lines can fill the entire screen.
Where does RF radiation come from?
RF radiation can affect humans and even sensitive electronics. Companies actually spend billions of dollars to protect their equipment from this kind of pollution but unfortunately, there is no such measure taken for the protection of human health.
This kind of radiation can come from cellular towers and even smaller gadgets which are commonly present in your home. It can be caused by WI-fi devices and non-wifi devices as well. You may have read that EMFs or electromagnetic fields from household appliances can harm your health, but what is commonly forgotten is that RF pollution from these appliances cause RF pollution as well.
RF radiation comes mainly from the source of power itself, and the gadgets as well as the household appliances which you think are causing most of the damage to your health are just a small portion of the much bigger picture.
Effects of RF Pollution on the Human Body
Similar to how long-term EMF exposure has negative effects on your body, you also have to be cautious about the negative effects from being exposed to too much RF pollution. Symptoms from too much exposure to this kind of pollution include but are not limited to:
- Neurological symptoms
- Respiratory concerns
- Opthalmological manifestations
- Dermatological conditions
In a study conducted by N. Wertheimer, D. Savitz &E. Leeper in 1995, childhood leukemia which is a good indicator of this kind of pollution is seen to be higher in areas which have higher electrical or RF pollution especially from ground sources.
Children who usually have ADHD have lesser manifestations of their condition when exposed to less or no RF pollution. A lot of chronic headaches also suddenly disappear when exposure to RF pollution is lessened. In some cases, blood sugar levels also skyrocket when in close proximity with strong sources of RF pollution such as cellular towers or other forms of telecommunication lines and electricity grids.
As a conclusion, less exposure to Radio Frequencies as well as EMF sources can help promote better health and less negative manifestations of being exposed to these health risk factors. Less exposure will be beneficial especially for diabetics, those with chronic headaches, and people who are easily stressed out without exactly knowing what the cause of their problems is. Keeping away from almost everything that is powered by electricity as well as main power sources can help reduce the risks of getting problems from Radio Frequency radiation.
