:Types of the Electromagnetic-Stress:

This section presents the most common sources of both natural and man-made electromagnetic interference. The emphasis is placed on those sources of stress most likely to be affecting you.

Hazard Ratings given in this section are based upon clinical experience with hundreds of patients with electromagnetic stress problems. They are intended to provide a relative guide to the probable significance to you of each source. Each rating is based on such factors as field strength, length of exposure, and the number of people affected. The range is from 10 (greatest hazard) to 1 (least likely to be problematic). These ratings follow the source of interference, as in the following example: Local distribution lines and high transmission lines (10).


Most man-made electromagnetic fields are either 60 Hz fields as in America or 50 Hz in Europe and Russia. These are the oscillation of the electrical utilities’ power grids, to which most people are connected.


Local distribution lines and high tension transmission lines (10): Local electrical distribution lines can radiate fields about 150 feet in all directions. The larger power lines radiate significant electromagnetic fields up to a half-mile wide (a quarter-mile to each side). Studies are beginning to show the increased risks of conditions as serious as leukemia and cancer with this type of EMF exposure.

Substations (10): These substantial installations radiate stress fields for a quarter mile in every direction. It is very wise to consider their location as well as that of any high-tension giants discussed above when making real estate decisions. It is likely that, as this information becomes more widely known and accepted, real estate values will begin to reflect these problems that so easily traverse property boundaries. Don't invest either your money or your health on a bad risk.

Transformers (8): Smaller end-of-line transformers, like the one that is likely in front of the building you are in, radiate fields of 150 feet or more, varying with the different types in use.

Fuse boxes (8): When located in the bedroom or workspace or even when situated inconspicuously on the other side of a wall, they are a source of stress. Fuse boxes almost always have some electricity flowing through them, so they are a source of chronic stress when implicated.


Concrete foundations(10): block the normal and beneficial Schumann field is also a source of ionizing radiation. It is therefore important, since most of both live and work in such an environment, to get outdoors daily in a natural area such as walking on a lawn or at the beach.

Metal building materials (9): These also block the beneficial Schumann field and can act to amplify harmful EMF.

Old or poorly designed wiring (8): Old styles of wiring, such as aluminum wiring, not only create fire hazards, they also increase electromagnetic stress. One old type of wiring runs bare wires on adjacent studs using porcelain insulators. Because of the separation of the two currents running in opposite directions, this design increases magnetic fields. The lowest magnetic fields are produced by heavy-gauge wires that are twisted tightly around each other. The low resistance and twisting both help to increase efficiency magnetic fields. The proximity in the walls to sleep and work is also important, since fields drop with distance. Wiring design is especially important in the bedroom, because of the sensitivity of the body to electromagnetic fields during sleep. Wires to bedroom wall plugs can be run down from the ceiling rather than along the wall at plug level. Also, a separate circuit breaker switch for the bedroom circuits may be installed in the bedroom. In this way, even the residual fields resulting from the resonance of alternating current in the wiring system can be eliminated during sleep. This can be especially important if the bedroom circuit wiring surrounds the bedroom on 3 or 4 sides.

Electrical systems grounded to water pipes (7): This problem extends to neighboring homes on the same water line, when there is a short circuit or other faulty wiring. Beyond the potential for chronic electromagnetic stress, improper grounding also increases the risk of electrocution during lightning storms. This is a form of acute electromagnetic stress.

Faulty wiring (7): When the polarity of the wires are reversed in household or office wiring, extra energy is lost to production of electromagnetic fields. This means increased health risks, as well as higher utility bills. Reversed polarity current, caused by improper connection of the wires to a wall plug, also puts increased wear and tear on electrical appliances.

Appliances in the Household:

The typical situation of man-made electromagnetic stress occurs in the average modern bedroom. During sleep, the body's functions go into a resting and recuperating phase of activity. The body's own electromagnetic functions become more sensitive to fields. This makes sense when you realize that the sun is the source of most natural EMF on earth. At night we are on the side of the earth that is shielded from that exposure. Our bodies, therefore, are not designed to overcome EMF interference at night.

The functions most interfered with are those most active at night. These include certain channels in the body called meridians, which have been proven to carry direct electrical current. The meridians active at night are those regulating the liver, gall bladder, lungs and large intestine. The normal detoxification process is blocked by the effects on all of these meridians and their associated organs.

Mental integration, rest, and recuperation are also blocked by the false state of 'sleep' which these electromagnetic fields induce. The normal dreaming cycle is disrupted or completely bypassed. EEG measurements of continuous low frequency brain waves indicate that it is more like being in an induced coma than like normal sleep.

Due to both the mental and physical effects, such a disturbed sleep pattern can become very addictive. The need for true sleep and rejuvenation increases with time.

Cellular Phones (10):

A study by Dr. Henry Lai of the University of Washington shows that low levels of exposure to electromagnetic fields and radio frequencies (E.M.F.s & R.F.s) cause DNA damage in brain cells of rats causing loss of short and long-term memory plus slower learning. "...DNA damages in cells could have an important implication on health because they are cumulative."

Lai, Henry, "Neurological Effects of Radio frequency Electromagnetic Radiation" a paper presented by at the Mobile Phones and Health Symposium, Oct. 25-28, 1998, University of Vienna, Austria

A study at Penn State University concludes that EMF exposure produces no effect for the "first few minutes, . . . then a cascade of microbial destruction occurs."

Penn State University, "DNA and the Microwave Effect", January 20, 2001

The levels at which damage occurs are as low as 0.024 to 0.0024 W/kg which is much lower than any cell phone.

Using an earpiece can increase E.M.F. in the head by as much as three times by better connecting your head as an antenna.

London Times, "Hands Free Phone May Triple Risks", April 4, 2000

Studies now report a link between cell phone radiation and both heart and kidney disease.

Case: An electrical contractor experienced heart pains for which no pathological cause was found. He recalled a warning to avoid carrying a mobile phone in a shirt pocket, but he moved the phone to a belt at his waist. The heart pains ceased, but a soon he suffered pains near his kidney. Again no pathology was found. The phone was removed from his belt and the kidney pain ceased.

Case: A woman experienced mild to severe discomfort up to a few feet away from a mobile phone in standby mode. When the phone rang, upper back tension, neck pain, breathing difficulty and anxiety were triggered. The following day muscle stiffness was worse than usual. Her rheumatoid arthritis pain is frequently triggered by radio frequency E.M.R. exposure.

A study at the sleep laboratory of the University of Zurich found that 30 minutes of cell phone radiation (GSM) while awake altered EEG activity after falling asleep.

A large number of caged exotic birds were located about 150 metres from an analogue cell phone antenna with no symptoms. When the cell phone antenna was upgraded to digital, most birds failed to breed and those that did destroyed most of their own eggs. Even live hatchlings were prematurely ejected from the nests, with only two survivors. The birds moulted continuously and were unusually aggressive. Veterinary examination found no overt disease. 200 metres from the same base station, racing pigeons became disoriented and unable to navigate.
In another Sydney suburb, on a high rise building, a change in habits of a 'resident' flock of crows was observed after a digital mobile base station was installed on the roof. The birds became noisy and restless for a number of days before unexpectedly vacating the area. Residents in nearby high rises also experienced debilitating health effects including cancer within three years of base station installation in a residential area.

Breast cancer has a high incidence in women along Sydney's North Shore. Dr Bruce Hocking found high incidence of leukemia in children and a link between their survival rate and the distance from a TV transmission tower. Three major TV transmission towers share this same location.

The North Shore Times, October 10th, Sydney, Australia

In 2000, due to a link with increased incidence of eye cancer, the German Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children minimize cell phone use. Cell phone users show a 4x increase risk of eye cancer, while walkie-talkie users have over 3x increase risk for uveal melanoma.

Microwave News, January/February 2001 Epidemiology 12, p. 7-12, 2001

Dr. David de Pomerai of the University of Nottingham has shown that very weak microwave radiation can change the shape of proteins, causing them to clump together or form long strands called fibrils. De Pomerai claims that these changes trigger the production of heat shock proteins, a microwave effect previously reported by a number of researchers. Fibrils are a common feature of several neurological diseases, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Creutzfeldt-Jakob.

Heated water beds (10): most water beds contain heating coils to heat the water. When sleeping on such a bed the water transmits the field produced by the heating elements directly to the unwary sleeper. Normal sleep pattems are interfered with. If you must sleep on one, heat it during the day and unplug it at night. The water will hold the heat all night due to its high specific heat capacity. If you must buy a waterbed, get one without a heating coil.

Electric blankets and heating pads (10): The current in these devices is much too close to the human body. Studies are showing significant health risks with the use of these devices. The effects totally interrupt the normal mechanisms of the body's temperature and circulation regulation. This is obviously not helpful to anyone who is already suffering from poor circulation.

Cigarette smoke (10): Cigarette smoke contains significant amounts of radioactivity because of the Uranium contained in fertilizers used in commercial tobacco growing. The Uranium decays to Radium and then to Polonium 210, which is taken up by the plant. As a result, the lungs of a pack-and-a-half-a-day smoker are exposed to the equivalent of 300 chest x-rays a year. Those who live with smokers are not only exposed to the radioactive Polonium, but also to increased levels of radioactive Radon breakdown products which are attracted to smoke particles. This causes Radon products to stay in the air rather than settling onto surfaces as they usually do. Cigarette smoke contains other radioactive elements as well: Radium 226, Lead 210, Bismuth 210 and Potassium 40.

Microwave ovens (9): Microwaves break nitrogen bonds in proteins, so they are not recognizable to our digestive enzymes. Since most Americans eat 2 to 3 times too much protein they don't notice much difference in digestion, though. Even 'safe' levels of microwaves have unknown health implications. If you already own one and you insist on making some use of your monetary investment, the least problematic use is to preheat microwave safe utensils and water. This is what microwave ovens were originally intended for. Since units can begin to leak as they age, it is important to check them about twice a year using a detector, or better yet, a measuring device like the Trifield meter. Even in homes free of microwave sources, some resonance may be carried into the home through utility wires from homes on a common end-of-line transformer. This is another advantage to off-grid systems such as photo-voltaic (solar electricity).

Smoke alarms (8): Effects of radioactive ionization-type smoke detectors can extend up to 50 feet. They contain Americium 241. Do you have difficulty getting a good night's sleep in a hotel room? This is one reason: they are all equipped with a smoke alarm in the bedroom! Radiation-free smoke detectors, using a photoelectric process rather than ionization, are available and should be used. Not only are they radiation-free, they even work better, according to Consumers Report. But please note, if you get rid of your ionization type smoke detector, please follow the disposal instructions on the unit. It contains radioactive material, and should not be thrown in the trash! (So why, then, would we want them in our homes?) Also remember that using a battery-operated model minimizes the non-ionizing radiation given off, even by the photoelectric units which contain no radioactive substances.

Clock radios (8): Keep the cord and the radio at least 8 feet from yow body, and especially your head. The head contains our most specialized EMF receptors: the retina and the pineal.

Color television (6): A color television set, even unplugged, maintains a charge for at least 3 days. Don't sit closer than 6 to 10 feet when watching, and limit your viewing time to less than 2 hours a day. The flicker of the light from the screen is in the alpha brain wave range. This is one of the main reasons that the “boob tube” is so named.

By looking at a television picture we are automatically entrained, or electro-magnetically forced, into a relaxed, meditative, hypnotic, suggestible state. Also, old color TVs may emit x-rays.

Heating and cooling appliances (5): Because items like electric heaters, stoves, toasters, refrigerators and air conditioners draw large amounts of current, they produce strong electromagnetic fields. Like all energy fields, they drop off with distance, so this only becomes a significant problem if we spend a lot of time within a few feet of one of these appliances. At times this becomes a little tricky to realize, because magnetic fields go right through walls. Fields are also emitted by the wiring carrying the current to the appliance. It is especially important to check the location of appliances and wiring in walls that are shared by a bedroom and another room like the kitchen, where a refrigerator will be going on and off during sleep hours. The best way to rule out fields from unseen sources like wiring in walls, ceilings or floors is to monitor periodically with a simple ELF magnetic field meter.

New research is finding ways to produce cooling with sound waves.

Certain other building materials (4): Phospho-gypsum based materials like anhydride are extremely high in radioactive Uranium (13.7 ppm) and Thorium (16.1 ppm). This material should definitely be avoided. Construction with granite, and sometimes brick or concrete can increase indoor radon levels by 50% over wood construction. Granite averages 4.7 ppm of Uranium and 2.0 ppm of Thorium, while cement averages 3.4 ppm Uranium and 5.1 ppm Thorium.

Commercial fertilizers (4): Phosphate fertilizers used extensively in agribusiness contain Uranium and its radioactive breakdown products. Entire sections of the United States and other commercially farmed areas have had their topsoil polluted with this ionizing radiation source.

Touch-on lamps (4): While these are handy on the nightstand, this is just the worst place for them. In order to function, they carry a constant low level of current through the lamp.

Ceramics (3): Some ceramics, including tableware, contain up to 20% Uranium compounds, these can be leached out, especially by acid foods like tomato or citrus, transferring the radiation source to the body. Be especially suspicious of shiny surfaces with colors like red, orange, yellow or beige.

Shavers (3): While those who use an electric shaver are only exposed for a short time each day or periodically, the electromagnetic field levels to which the user is exposed are very high. Since alternatives are widely available, it is wise to use a rechargeable battery operated shaver, a wind-up mechanical shaver, or the old fashioned razor blades.

Irradiated foods (5): While foods being treated with radiation do not retain the ionizing radiation they have been exposed to, there is much reason for concern over the effects of eating these 'dead' foods:

The energetic resonance of the radiation source stays in the food.

The energy of the radiation which is absorbed by the food stays in the food, dissipating over a period of weeks. If consumed too soon after
irradiation, deleterious health effects are maximized.

The abnormal chemical breakdown products caused by ionizing radiation continue to be present in the food and are likely to include toxins and carcinogens.

Enzymes and nutrients in the food are destroyed, decreasing food value and promoting mal-digestion.

The life energy of the food is released in the form of bio-photons, leaving a lifeless effigy of real food.

Normal bacterial flora are destroyed.

Pathogenic bacteria and fungi, like those producing botulism and aflatoxin (a potent carcinogen) survive. In addition, they are provided with a growth medium free of competition. Because the toxins produced by the pathogens have no smell, it is not possible for you to tell if the irradiated food has gone bad. The warning smells of putrefaction and fermentation are gone with the bacteria that would produce them.

Even government inspection of irradiated foods as they enter the country cannot guarantee their safety. They may contain acceptable levels of biological toxins at the time they are imported. Then, in storage, the pathogenic flora can thrive. Aflatoxin, one of the substances produced, especially in peanuts, is one of the most carcinogenic substances known. Another, Clostridium botulinum, can cause rapid death from food poisoning.

Maintaining a healthy gut flora is important for humans as well as the foods we eat. Studies at the Iowa State University show salmonella levels drop in pigs consuming Lactobacilli instead of antibiotics. More antibiotics are given to pigs each year than to humans. About 4 million Americans are made ill by salmonella each year. It makes more sense to supplement healthy flora rather than destroy them.


Beepers, pagers (9): As personal communication devices like beepers and pagers become more common, the hazard from these increases in incidence. Beepers or pagers are especially injurious because they are often worn on the belt and are therefore in close proximity to the body, and certain meridians in particular. This most often involves one or more of the meridians that cross the waist-line.

Cellular phones (8): The main source of stress with cellular phones is the transmitter, which must be powerful enough to transmit outgoing signals over the fairly long distances of the cellular network. This transmitter may be in close proximity to the user for several hours a day or more. This is compounded by the usual electromagnetic stress common to all telephones. That is due to both the electromagnetic speaker and microphone in close contact with the ear and mouth area respectively. The battery driven electromagnetic oscillation of the piezoelectric quartz crystal in most watches today presents a potential interference with the many meridians which run through the wrist. Also, for those who wear a quartz watch pendant around the neck, the thymus, a most important element in the immune may be affected. Old “glow in the dark” or luminescent dial watches may contain Radium. Many of the people who painted those dials got mouth cancer from the practice of licking their brushes to maintain a fine point.
Metal and synthetic materials in contact with the body:

Buccal currents (9): Buccal literally means the cheeks. The buccal currents are measurable electrical currents in the mouth by the effects of foreign metals in the body. These dissimilar metals, such as the silver and mercury combined in the common amalgam fillings, set up a battery effect. The metals are leached out into the tissues, causing many different types of health and performance problems. , Heavy metal ions are known to plate out on the cell membrane. They also substitute for other minerals with similar electron configurations (see: Biofields: Physics of Your Health, 2nd Edition). Thus they block important enzymes for which the nutrient minerals act as cofactors.

Pins, screws, and plates (8): Currents similar to the buccal currents can be set up in any part of the body by the presence of metal parts.

Synthetic clothing (8): Static electrical charges of up to several thousand volts are generated by normal movement when wearing synthetic clothing. The currents generated are enough to interfere with normal functioning of the body's sensitive electrical system.

Necklaces (6): Metal necklaces block the normal transmission of the electrical heart rhythm (EKG) to the head. They can receive resonant frequencies of environmental electrical pollution and transmit them to the body, especially the thymus, which is an important part of the immune system. Necklaces can also interfere with the normal electromagnetic functions of the meridians which pass through the neck.

Jewelry (4): Each piece of jewelry picks up specific resonant frequencies from the environment, like an antenna, transmitting them directly to the body through the skin. This transmission to the body is especially easy if the jewelry has metal in contact with any of the hundreds of highly conductive acupuncture points located all over the body. The acupuncture points are especially concentrated on the ears, the fingers and the toes. So rings and earrings almost always affect at least one acu-point. In fact, earrings were first worn by sailors to stimulate an acupuncture point on the ear that affects the eyes. Gold has a tonifying or stimulating effect, so this metal was worn to stimulate improved eyesight, so important for navigation at sea. Of course many earrings are made of alloys containing potentially toxic metals, so the effects on vision today may be “less clear.”

Metal eyeglass frames (4): The metal connection in these frames short circuits the brain's hemispheres where a difference exists in the electrical potential of the two sides of the brain. This can contribute to mental confusion and fatigue as well as headaches for those with a strongly dominant hemisphere. Typical metal frames also contain Nickel, the most common cause of contact dermatitis (also from costume jewelry).

Most frames are made with a plastic temple cover, which can help if the frames are adjusted so that no metal touches the skin. Nickel-free Titanium frames are not only the lightest and strongest, but also the most biocompatible of all metal frames made of the non-precious metals.

The most common site of cancer around the eye is where the nose-pads rest, compressing the tissue with plastic or silicone, and restricting circulation and lymph flow. Consider biocompatible contact lenses and reducing dependency on glasses. A slightly reduced prescription can often help ease this transition and actually improve visual performance and comfort.

Glass eyeglass lenses (3): Optical glass may contain Uranium and Thorium, exposing the eye to ionizing radiation that can contribute to cataracts.

Eyeglass prescription (6): Lens prescriptions affect the intensity and distribution of electromagnetic energy on the retina. The retina is specifically designed to receive sunlight, which is one octave of the electromagnetic spectrum. The retina is the primary sensory receptor of the body. Each retina has the capacity to send as much information and electromagnetic energy to the brain as all other sensory systems combined. This electromagnetic nerve current is transmitted in the form of waves of electrical action potentials. Nerve current is what stimulates and regulates the brain and all of its functions. The lens prescription which minimizes electromagnetic stress on the retina and brain may not give the sharpest vision. Vision that is too sharp reduces the total information flow and increases stress.

Ozone depletion (6): UV radiation reaching the surface of the earth is increasing. This is caused by chlorinated fluorocarbons emitted by refrigeration plants and leaking refrigeration systems. This means that in the future, excessive exposure to sunlight may be even more harmful than now. The incidence of UV related diseases like skin cancer and cataracts continues to rise. It becomes much more important to maintain a truly healthy and clean body, eliminating those toxic and synthetic chemicals from the body which become even more detrimental when energized by the absorption of radiant light energy from the sun.

Military, medical and industrial waste radiation (4): Every state has some kind of military or industrial nuclear facility. In fact, 90% of the American population lives within 100 miles of a nuclear power plant. About one and a half million Americans are exposed to ionizing radiation at their workplace. Health effects have been shown to begin at levels at least as low as 30 times below current regulatory standards. As soon as these findings were discovered, however, the Department of Energy stopped funding the research and failed to change allowable exposure limits. Hospitals also produce significant radioactive waste. Dump sites containing these materials present an ongoing hazard, since the half-life of some radioactive materials is many thousands of years. High exposures also result from being downwind of testing and accidents. Wastes of course are transported along major highways and rail lines, so accidents here pose an additional potential for exposure of millions of people.


Remote-Sensing of a Geopathic Stress

Dear Dr. Glen,
Your comment about Adam travelling was right on. Adam has been visiting his grandparents in PA more the last few months. The last time was right before Thanksgiving. I'm curious about why you asked that question. Please let me know. Thank you.
Rachel (New York)

Reply: He showed a type of geopathic stress on his remote Biofield Analysis. This most often comes from the sleeping environment. Since it was a new pattern for him and these earth fields rarely change, I wondered if he had been sleeping in a different location.
Dr. Glen


Geopathic stress is a general term for natural electromagnetic stress. The origin of the term is from earth (geologic) fields, which over prolonged periods of exposure, produce disease (pathology). European investigators have demonstrated relationships between these fields and multiple sclerosis, rheumatism, arthritis, cardiovascular dysfunction, and cancer. Dr. Hans Nieper, an oncologist and Director of the Silbersee Hospital in Germany, has shown that at least 92% of his cancer patients have experienced chronic exposure to geopathic stress, especially in their sleeping place.

Schumann Field: The Schumann Field is a beneficial field, which by its deficiency causes much stress, dysfunction and symptomatology. Early in the space program, N.A.S.A. discovered that many of the symptoms of space sickness experienced by the astronauts were due to the absence of these important Schumann resonances. Consequently, since that time, devices have been installed in all manned space flights that simulate the Schumann field oscillations, thus eliminating much of the stress of space flight. Here on earth, however, many people have very little exposure to these important electromagnetic frequencies, because blacktop, concrete, steel, and lowered water tables interfere with the normal resonance between the ionosphere and the conductive earth.

Hartmann Grid: The Hartmann Grid is a repetitive resonance or standing wave pattern over the surface of the earth. The energy of a single grid line is usually not clinically significant. The lines of the grid are oriented in two orthogonal directions.
The lines, called HM2 are spaced every 2 meters in one direction and every 2.5 meters in the other direction. In both directions, they have a width of 20 centimeters.
Every 10 meters in both directions there is a stronger, pathogenic grid line. This is called the HM3, and it is 40 centimeters wide.
There are also lines called HM7 and HM11, which are somewhat pathogenic. HM7 is 1.2 meters wide and HM11 is 2 meters in width.

Curry Grid: The Curry Grid is another resonance pattern of standing waves which covers the globe. It is oriented at 45 degrees to the Hartmann Grid and its lines also travel in orthogonal directions. The lines of the Grid are spaced 7 meters apart. Where crossing points intersect those of the grid, double grid zones of very pathogenic fields occur.

Underground water channels:

Announcement lines: These are generally benign, small fluctuations in the earth's electromagnetic field. They are equally spaced to either side of the stronger field found directly above the moving underground water channel.
Head lines: The zone directly, vertically above the moving underground water stream has a stronger field, and is the most pathogenic.
Center lines: The central zone above the part of the stream where the water speed is greatest produces a moderately pathogenic field.

Fault zones:

Announcement lines: These are generally benign, small fluctuations in the earth's electromagnetic field. They are usually asymmetrically spaced on either side of the fault. Spacing depends upon the angle at which the fault dips into the earth.

Fault line: The zone where the fault meets the surface of the earth carries the greatest and most detrimental electromagnetic field variations.

Geopathic disturbance fields are either charging (yang) or discharging (yin). Charging fields tend to produce sympathetic nervous system responses such as hypertension, stroke, heart attack, insomnia, hyperactivity, mania, alcoholism, migraine, childhood epileptiform fits, and nervousness. Discharging fields tend to produce responses of the parasympathetic nervous system including low energy, fatigue, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, malignancy and other degenerative disorders. There is also a tendency towards reversal of the spin characteristics of protein molecules.

Sunlight: Excessive amounts of sunlight can be received by those who spend many hours outdoors, especially near snow or water, in the tropics, or at high elevation. This not only causes sunburn, but also predisposes one to skin cancer and other tissue degeneration. The dark tans that some people prize block the ability of the skin to produce vitamin D, essential to absorption of calcium. Much of the damage done is due to the presence of toxic or potentially toxic (phototoxic) synthetic or pharmaceutical compounds not belonging in the body.

UV radiation: The Ultraviolet (UV) part of the solar spectrum includes both ionizing and non-ionizing radiation. Ionizing radiation splits up molecules directly when they absorb its photons, or energy packets. Non-ionizing radiation, in contrast, can only do harm either by building up heat faster than the circulation can carry it away, or by energizing toxic substances present in the body. The retina in the eye can be most easily burned by heat build-up, when looking directly at the sun, because the macula or center part of the retina has no capillary circulation to efficiently remove excess heat. Synthetic chemicals that are not a normal part of the human physiology become more toxic when they absorb light. Sunbathers are 700% more likely to develop skin cancer by eating margarine versus butter.

Radon gas: Radon gas (e.g. in shale bedrock is a common source of household and workplace radioactivity, especially in newer, tighter buildings. In areas where high levels of radon gas escape the bedrock, as in many permeable shales, the tradeoff of radioactivity for energy efficiency may not be worth the health costs.
Geologically young granite bedrock (e.g. Conway Granite in New Hampshire) shows a higher background radiation level and is one factor in the higher cancer rates in such areas.

Ore deposits cause local anomalies in the intensity and direction of the earth's magnetic field. Ferromagnetic ores take on the same polarity as the magnetic field they are in, thus increasing the earth's field in their vicinity. Paramagnetic ores take on an opposite field to that of the earth, reducing the resultant field. Diamagnetic rocks have no response to magnetic fields.

Charge variations in the upper atmosphere cause variable shifts in the earth's natural fields. These are affected by:

Ozone depletion. Oxygen forms a paramagnetic shield in the upper atmoshpere.

Solar polarity variations in the sun's interplanetary magnetic field (IMF), which the earth passes through in its orbit. In recent years, according to a russian scientist, there appears to be an increase in the background luminance of interplanetary space within our solar system. This could be due to entering the periphery of the galactic disc, containing extremely low temperature m-state minerals which diffuse light evenly across the visible spectrum.

Solar magnetic storms, which wax and wane in number on an eleven year cycle.

Moon Phases: Changes occur due to the gravitational variations associated with the moon's phases.

Magnetic and gravitational field variations with location on the earth are due to:

Latitude, with weaker magnetic fields toward the poles.

Altitude, with higher gravity at low elevation.


:EMF-Free: Maybe…

A young professional man in New York came to the author in 1988, suffering from constant, chronic sinus headaches and the beginnings of a serious degenerative eye condition called keratoconus. When BER testing revealed electromagnetic stress as a contributing cause, the client couldn't think of anything electrical in his bedroom, until he remembered that the fuse boxes for both his and a neighboring apartment were on either side of the head of his bed (on the other side of the wall). Sleeping in another room in the house led to an immediate healing crisis. This was marked by an acute exacerbation of his chronic sinus headache, followed the next day by steady improvement for the first time in the years since he had begun sleeping in the room with the fuse boxes. He also noticed that he began remembering his dreams since moving away from the electromagnetically stressed bedroom. The side benefit of improved circulation to the head and eyes has eliminated one of the risk factors this young man once carried with him every day for the potential loss of vision. Keratoconus can and does cause blindness when it progresses.

next: see article on Detection of Electromagnetic Pollution

Author's Bio: 

Dr. Glen first published Electromagnetic Pollution Solutions in 1989, after learning that one out of every three chronically ill patients fail to respond to energetically correct programs of natural medicine until key interfering electromagnetic fields are cleared from their daily life.
