Protection against electrosmog
Plug out and good night! One sees, hears, smells, does not taste it, but more and more people can feel it, and many suffer from it: electrosmog. Read how to protect yourself.
What is electrosmog?
Electrosmog is the name of the dangerous radiation cocktail to which people are exposed around the clock. It is based on electrical appliances, cables, transmitters, electrically charged surfaces and magnetised materials – so it’s practically everywhere!
Our world is always “electric”. Almost nothing is running without electricity these days. Whether in your own home, at work or outdoors: There is hardly a place where no radiation from artificially generated electromagnetic sources acts on us. With the increasing electrosmog, the number of people who feel it is growing: according to a study conducted in Salzburg in 2002, one in five is “electrosensitive” and feels radiation from mobile phones, cordless phones, electrically operated radio alarm clocks, for example. TVs, stereos, remotes, microwave ovens or computers.
Headache, sleep disorders, depression
“Electrosensitive” is the name given to people who not only feel this radiation but also suffer because their nervous system is confused by electrosmog. It is estimated that this is three to five percent of the population. The symptoms range from memory problems, lack of concentration and headaches, to learning difficulties, nervousness, sleep disorders and sweating, to arrhythmia and depression. According to various studies, electrosmog is also considered a risk factor for miscarriages, cancer and depression.
Diagnosis: Exposure to electrosmog
Little Melanie, 7, suffered from severe nightmares. On the advice of acquaintances, the parents turned to a building biologist. The man was holding clip-on lights attached to the bunk bed, with resulting high alternating electric fields for the possible trigger. And really it was like that: After the removal of the lights, the girl had no more nightmares. Kurt L., 40, woke up with sweat drenched every night. A doctor told him that maybe his DECT cordless phone is to blame. And indeed: After the man had removed the base station, he slept again without waking up. But a few weeks later, sleep disorders started again – what had happened? One floor up, his sister had moved in with a DECT cordless phone. In this case every night the plug was pulled. L. had his rest again.
