Most electrical equipment radiates some amount of electromagnetic energy or radio frequency, including your cell phone and other wireless devices. Wearing a fitness tracking device all day on your wrist makes you more susceptible to the dangerous effects of radiation.

Dangers of EMIF’s

Can Cause Cancer

Recent studies have shown that the non-ionizing, microwave radiation from wireless trackers are probably causing cancer. These have been classified as “possibly carcinogenic to humans” by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer. Experts in the area of the biological effects of electromagnetic frequencies (EMF) and wireless technologies believe there’s virtually no doubt that cell phones and related gadgets are capable of causing not only cancer but contributing to a wide variety of other conditions, from depression and diabetes to heart irregularities and impaired fertility.

Can Cause Dementia

Studies were conducted in a lab to see what happens when subjects are exposed to cell phone radiation. The results suggest electromagnetic radiation could cause symptoms of dementia. In addition to damaged DNA, which can cause cancer, the studies indicated that neurons in the brain experienced damage linked to memory loss and negatively affected learning capabilities.

Heavy Metal Exposure 

Heavy metals in your brain also act as micro-antennas, concentrating and increasing reception of EMF radiation. Likewise, any kind of metal implants and/or amalgam tooth fillings will significantly increase reception of microwaves, and the mircrocurrents from cell phones and other ambient fields.

Research by Martin Blank, Ph.D., a Special Lecturer and retired Associate Professor at Columbia University in the Department of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics and former president of the Bioelectromagnetics Society,15 explains that electromagnetic fields (EMF) damage your cells and DNA by inducing a cellular stress response.

Linked to Many Diseases 

In fact, iIllness linked to electromagnetic radiation exposure inclufiede many cancers, neurological conditions, ADD, sleep disorders, depression, fertility impairment, increased blood brain barrier permeability, mineral disruption, DNA damage, autism, cognitive problems, cardiovascular irregularities, hormone disruption, immune system disorders, metabolism changes, stress.
