We are all presently living in an ocean of electromagnetic current. The sources of these currents are: Extremely Low Frequencies (power lines, wiring in walls), Radio Frequencies (mobile phones), Microwave Frequencies (mobile phone, satellite communication) and Geopathic Stress (Earth radiation).
These currents of energy are silent and unseen so we deem them harmless and we do not question. But:
In 1990, Dr. Robert Becker, an Orthopaedic Surgeon and a pioneer in research in the relationship between human physiology and electricity, (three times nominated for Nobel Prize), categorically stated that the
Wireless communication was introduced in 1975. Between 1975 and 2000, Dr. Samuel Epstein of the University of Chicago Medical Centre reported:
Brain tumours are the number 2 killer of children in the USA while in Australia, brain tumours have replaced Leukaemia as the number 1 life threatening disease.(3)
Australia has seen an increase in paediatric brain cancers of 21 percent in just one decade. This is consistent with studies showing a 40 percent brain tumour increase across the board in Europe and the U.K. over the last 20 years.(4)

EMR (Electromagnetic Radiation) is a term used to describe an invisible form of man-made frequencies, transmitted through the atmosphere. Some common forms of EMR are; TV and Radio waves, Microwaves, Radar, X -rays etc. (1)
More specifically, “An electromagnetic radiating wave is a combination of an oscillating electric field and magnetic field at right angles to each.” (2)
A common way of measuring electromagnetic radiation is by its frequency in Hertz. (Megahertz =1 million Hertz ; Gigahertz = 1 billion hertz)
To gain a sense of this measurement, a heartbeat per second is 2Hertz.
The intensity of the magnetic field is measured in Gauss, (after German physicist Karl Gauss).
1 Gauss = 0.001mG
To gain an understanding of this measurement, a laptop computer measures between 15-100mG
Current Swedish safety standards are: 2.5mG for workplace (3)
The International BioInitiative Report recommends no higher than 1mG for children and pregnant women.(4)

We are surrounded by an assortment of electromagnetic fields. These waves of energy penetrate our body and depending on the length and type of exposure can create adverse reactions.
It is the positive ion resonance of these emissions that can impact the body. Many biological effects are being observed and long term / cumulative effects have yet to be chartered. Some common reactions to Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) are headaches, dehydration, nervousness, concentration difficulties, fatigue, sleep disorders, anxiety, tinnitus, depression.
Reports to date link exposure to increase incidence of childhood leukaemia, miscarriage, neurodegenerative diseases and tumours.
There are few countries who have regulated levels of EMR as they claim that studies have been inconclusive however,the Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees recommends 2.5mG for workplace levels. http://www.lessemf.com/emf-news.html
“Any reading higher than 0.5 mG is above the "usual" ambient exposure. Many experts and public officials, as well as the few governments that have made an effort to offer public protection, have adopted the 3 mG cutoff point.”
