A Science-Backed Guide to Protect Your Body
In a world full of digitalization, we all have become heavily dependent on electronics to make our lives easier. While the convenience these devices bring is unmatched, are we also aware of the health risks they pose?
Our mobile phones, computers, laptops, and every other electrical device send out invisibl0e energy waves called EMFs. Electric and Magnetic Fields (EMFs) are produced anywhere electricity is used, be it your home or workplace.
The two types of EMFs we are regularly exposed to include:
1. High-frequency EMFs: Scientific literature agrees that significant exposures can damage DNA or cells. Sources include X-ray imaging machines, CT scans, gamma radiation from radioactive elements, and UV radiation from tanning beds or the sun.
2. Low-to-mid-frequency EMFs: This radiation is mild and thought to be harmless. Sources include microwaves, cellphones, hair dryers, washing machines, power lines, and MRIs.
Evidence supports that using cell phones can cause negative biological effects resulting from EMF exposure. EMF emissions cause tissue heating (thermal effect), changes in blood flow (dynamic effect), and DNA damage (genotoxic effect).
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified EMFs produced by electronic devices to be possible carcinogens. A 2011 IARC evaluation points to a link between radiation and cancer in people, particularly glioma, a type of brain cancer. Researchers suggest that high exposure to low-frequency EMF fields enhances the risk of acute myeloid leukemia. Some studies suggest long-term exposure could be harmful to cognitive ability as well.
Our bodies are bombarded with these frequencies and radiations 24/7. Knowing all we do, there shouldn’t be a question about the long-term use of electronic products. But, there is a way that can safeguard you from some of the potential side effects of EMF.
Body Align has developed products targeting 5G and EMF radiation protection so you don’t compromise your health anymore.
