EMR Exposure: A Basic Avoidance Strategy

Since our bodies are most susceptible to problems while sleeping, IBE highly recommends creating a sleeping sanctuary. See this previous article -- Sleeping Sanctuary.

There are, however, some initial steps you can take today to protect you from EMR exposure.

• Minimize all exposure and usage of wireless communication: cell phones, cordless
phones, and WiFi devices.
• Turn cell phone off when not in use and definitely when sleeping. Never keep it near
your head or use it to play games, movies, etc.
• Keep cell phone at least 6-7 inches away from your body and others while on, talking,
texting and downloading.
• Never keep cell phone in pocket or on hip all day. The hip produces 80% of the body’s
red blood cells and is especially vulnerable to EMR damage. The close proximity may
also affect fertility.
• Do not talk on cell or cordless phone when pregnant, with a baby/small child in arms,
under age 16, or while in a vehicle (car, train, plane, subway) – the radiation gets
trapped and is higher in these closed metal zones!
• Replace all cordless and WiFi items with wired, corded lines (phones, Internet, games,
appliances, devices, etc.). The cordless phone base emits high levels of EMR – even
when no one is making a call. (900MHz Analog cordless phones are okay)
• Minimize/space out computer use, sit back from the screen; flat screens are preferable.
Use wired Internet connections, not WiFi – especially for laptops. Keep laptops off of the
body and preferably on wooden surfaces.
• Keep a low-EMR sleep, home, and personal zone. Move alarm clock radio at least 3 feet
from head or use battery power; 6 feet is the recommended distance from all electronic
devices during sleep.
• Avoid waterbeds, electric and metal frames. Futons/wood frames are better than metalcoiled mattresses and box-springs. Metals attract EMR: keep them away from and off of the body.
• Ensure that there are no electrical appliances, power meters, or circuit panels on the exterior or interior wall of bedrooms.
