Everything from "smart" meters, watches, and appliances to wireless routers to LED light bulbs are polluting our living spaces with shockingly high levels of electromagnetic frequencies (EMF), which damage human cells and destroy human health.
"Everything is 'smart' now," writes Marina Zhang for The Epoch Times. "Not many people still wear an old-fashioned wristwatch."
"Wireless and smart devices connect to mobile networks and the internet by emitting invisible signals – a type of EMF known as radiofrequency radiation. Most radio frequencies have a frequency between 3 kHz (kilohertz) to 300 GHz (gigahertz)."
What these frequencies do, Zhang further explains, is trigger the formation of cancer inside the brain and breasts, for example, or interfere with sperm health. In short, EMFs are antithetical to human life, and they are radiating from Bluetooth devices, "smart" virtual assistants like Amazon's Alexa, and just about everything else these days that is tied to the "Internet of Things."

There are various kinds of EMFs at all sorts of wavelengths that impact the body in different ways. None of those are good ways, by the way, and yet there would seem to be very little we can do to avoid exposure – or is there?
Dr. David Carpenter, a professor of environmental health at the University of Albany in New York (part of the State University of New York [SUNY] system), says that, whenever possible, people should hardwire as much of their electronics as possible.
Using an ethernet cable for your computer's internet connection rather than a wireless router is one way you can help to protect your family from excess EMFs.
Replacing Bluetooth speakers and earphones with corded or wired speakers and headphones is another way to cut down your exposure to damaging EMFs while at home.
It turns out there is nothing at all smart about smart devices, which are constantly emitting EMFs pretty much around the clock. Sticking with traditional thermostats, blenders, watches, and other devices is a great way to protect yourself from excess EMFs.
When getting ready for bed, many experts suggest shutting down your smartphone and other devices and limiting your exposure to "blue" light, which is emitted from all your screens unless they are placed in night mode, which removes the blue light and makes everything appear more orange.
Prof. Emerita Magda Havas from Trent University in Canada says a bedtime ritual that limits electronics exposure will help your body to rest better and thus heal better, helping you to feel more alive the next day.
"Consider turning off Wi-Fi modems and putting mobile phones and wireless devices in airplane mode before bed," Zhang further recommends.
If you are concerned about your EMF exposure levels at home, you might want to also consider investing in an RF meter, or radiofrequency meter, which you can use to detect which items are emitting the most wireless pollution.
"Apart from wireless devices, all home electronics – when in use – can give off extremely low-frequency EMFs, or ELF EMFs," Zhang says.
"Electrical appliances with motors also tend to produce strong magnetic fields. These can include appliances like refrigerators, dishwashers, hair dryers, and anything that produces heat."
