Electromagnetic Fields (EMF’s) are an integral part of our everyday lives. EMF’s are extremely difficult to shield but they do decrease in strength dramatically as you create distance from the source. It is therefore often a matter of just knowing where the sources are and what the advisable distances from the sources would be. Solutions to EMF exposure will often only involve small changes in living and working habits.
In a field that is exceptionally contoversial and confusing, ecolibria will assess your living and working space and provide simple and cost effective solutions.
Power lines / transmission lines, tram and train lines, meter boxes, transformers, substations, mobile phones, faulty wiring, microwaves, electric blankets, digital clock radios, wireless remote controllers, laptops, mobile phone chargers and dishwashers are amongst the most common sources. However there are many more electrical appliances and equipment that may be the source of your electromagnetic field exposure.
Potential health risks associated with EMF exposure
Living close to powerlines and being exposed to EMF’s in excess of 4mG is associated with a doubling in the incidence of childhood leukaemia. (BioInitiative Report, 2007).
Many health effects are associated with EMF exposure but the most common are disturbed sleep, insomnia, headaches, tingling, loss of short term memory, difficulty concentrating, chronic fatigue and more seriously breast cancer, childhood leukemia and brain tumours.
What is involved in having my home or business premises tested?
- A Building Biologist will personally discuss your specific concerns and requirements.
- A Building Biologist will visit your site at a time that suits you best.
- Digital readings of EMF’s are taken in all areas of the home or business using approved digital gauss meters and other necessary equipment.
- Every source of EMF is personally explained and solutions provided.
- If required a formal written report detailing all readings and recommendations will be provided.
There is a difference between what is regarded as a safe Australian standard / guideline and what is regarded as a safe Building Biology standard and this will be explained. Building Biology standards are in line with the strictest standards in the world.
