Body voltage - should it be measured?
EMR Australia, Wednesday, March 08, 2017

Should you use earthing products and should you measure body voltage? Alasdair Phillips, director of EMFields and Powerwatch and designer of the EMFields meters we stock, shared his views with us. Alasdair is an internationally-respected authority on testing electromagnetic fields. He said: 'I have real problems with the measurement of “body voltage” as it is usually measured and I need to answer it in a somewhat long-winded way. 'Electric fields are the measure of the el  read more

Exposure in public places
EMR Australia, Thursday, August 25, 2016

To discover how much wireless radiation people are exposed to in public spaces, Swedish researchers measured the fields present in the Stockholm Central Railway Station in Sweden. They took measurements in over 1600 locations and found that exposures measured bwtween 2,817 and 4,891 uW/m2. That's a much higher exposure than the 3-6 uW/cm2 recommended by the independent authors of the BioInitiative Working Group. The study was published in August 2016 and more details about it can be foun  read more

WiFi in homes and schools
EMR Australia, Monday, July 11, 2016

When it comes to WiFi, are we exposed to more radiation from routers in schools or in homes? This is what electrical engineer and Director of Powerwatch has to say: (a) The school routers that I have measured have not been worse (i.e. more powerful) than home routers per se. There are also often many of them (1 to 3 routers per classroom or hall are common) which increases the RF power density. (b) Power density levels with multiple users will always be significantly highe  read more

EMR and depression
EMR Australia, Thursday, June 23, 2016

Electromagnetic fields affect calcium channels, increasing calcium levels in cells and triggering a chain of events that leads to symptoms such as depression, according to Professor Martin Pall. This occurs at nonheathing (athermal) levels of exposure - ie levels that comply with Australian and international standards. You can read Professor Pall's paper describing this mechanism and its effects here. (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0891061815000599)   read more

Techitis
EMR Australia, Sunday, June 12, 2016

Constant use of smart phones is negatively affecting people's health, say experts. Eyesight problems, muscle and joint pain, tissue degeneration and fatigue are all symptoms that have been linked to people's phone use. You can see more here.

Mobiles and cancer
EMR Australia, Tuesday, June 07, 2016

A recent paper by Professor Simon Chapman claims that there is no increased rate of brain tumours in Australia that correlates with increased use of mobile phones. Following the publication of this paper, a number of articles have appeared, suggesting that mobile phones don't increase brain tumour rates. That's not so, say scientists from the US. Professor Devra Davis, engineer Lloyd Morgan and Anthony Miller, in their article,“Why there can be no increase in all brain cancers tied with   read more

Magnetic fields, cancer and train drivers
EMR Australia, Thursday, June 02, 2016

Scientists analysed health records of Swiss railway workers. They found, not only exposure to high magnetic fields, but also higher-than-normal rates of myeloid leukemia and Hodgkin’s lymphoma/Hodgkin’s disease. Magnetic fields are generated by the flow of electricity and are present wherever electrical equipment, power lines, meter boxes and electrical wiring are found. Action could be taken to reduce rail workers' exposure to magnetic fields, say lawyers commenting on the study.   read more

Mobile phone-cancer study
EMR Australia, Monday, May 30, 2016

A major, $25 million US study has found an increased risk of cancer in rats exposed to mobile phone radiation over a two-year period. The 25,00 rats, exposed for nine hours a day to 900 and 1900 MHz mobile phone signals, developed increased rates of gliomas and schwannomas of the heart. You can see the video here.
