What is EMF and EMR?
EMF (Electromagnetic Fields are the invisible electric and magnetic fields radiating away from man-made alternating electrical current. They weaken with distance from the source. EMF radiate from all electrical appliances in the home, office or factory, in cars, trucks and buses, also overhead tram and train lines.
EMR (Electromagnetic Radiation) is an invisible energy wave of man-made frequencies, transmitted through the atmosphere. Some common forms of EMR are: TV and Radio waves, Microwaves, Radar, X -rays etc.
Together, these are usually referred to as ‘electro-pollution’, are used interchangeably, and simply called EMF – unwanted man-made interference.
“EMF Pollution may be the most significant form of pollution that human activity has produced in this century, all the more dangerous because it is invisible and insensible.”
EMF is measured in milligauss (mG). the electrical wiring in your home, when operating efficiently, emits between 0.5 and 0.9mG. the EPA’s recommended safety standard is 1 mG.
EMF Levels from Common Sources in Milligaus (mG) Recommended Safety Levels .5 mG-2.5 mG

What is a “free radical”?
A free radical within your body is when a balanced molecule changes to a positively charged molecule instead, called an ion. This may be caused when radiation from the top end of the frequency range (high ultra-violet, x-rays and gamma rays) has so much energy that when it collides with an electron in a molecule, the electron is thrown off orbit.
Due to their electrical charge, these ions quickly connect with other molecules, trying to steal the electron to replace the one off on orbit. When this happens within your system, the free radicals are causing havoc with your natural rhythms and biology, especially if they damage molecules inside your cell’s DNA.
Why do we not have natural protection against EMF?
Generally, the earth atmosphere protects us by absorbing most of the electromagnetic frequencies present in the cosmos, except for lower frequency radio waves and visible light rays.
When human and animals evolved, such wavelengths were either not in existence or at a very low intensity. Hence our bodies never developed protective mechanisms against them.
Advanced technology has caused so much new stress levels on the body with new energy pollutants. However, the same advanced technology and frequencies programmed in to the Geoclense means the harmful radiation can be neutralized.
What are the Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR)?
Scientists previously believed that the only way that EM radiation could produce damaging effects was if the radiation was sufficiently intense to cause a heating effect on the tissues. (It has been reported that talking on a cell phone for half an hour can raise the temperature of the brain on the affected side).
This theory has now been roundly discredited by many studies in which biological effects have been observed at intensities far too small to cause any measurable heating effects.
Here are some of the biological changes caused by electromagnetic radiation, as observed and reported in various studies (most recent first):
Protein Changes in Skin. Ten women volunteered to participate in a study in which radiation (900 mH) from GSM call phones was applied to then for one hour to simulate a phone call. Scientists then screened their skin cells for any stress reactions. They looked at 580 different proteins and found two which were substantially affected. (One was increased by 89% and the other decreased by 32%)
Excited Brain Cells. Researchers from Fatebenefratelli Hospital in Isola Tiberina, found that the electromagnetic field emitted by the cell phones can caused some cells in the brain’s cortex (adjacent to the side of phone use) to became excited for about an hour, while others became inhibited.
DNA Damage. German research group Verum studied the effect of radiation on human and animal cells. After being exposed to cell phone frequencies the cell showed increased breaks in their DNA. Damaged DNA is implicated in several disease processes, including various types of cancer.
These DNA breaks may not always be repaired by the cells. The damage would therefore be passed on to future cells which could predispose them to becoming cancerous.
Brain Cell Damage. A study of the effects of cell phone frequencies (applied at non-thermal intensity) on rat brains showed damage to the neurons (brain cells) in various brain parts, including the cortex, hippocampus and basal ganglia.
Aggressive Growth in Leukemia Cells Researches at the National Research Council in Bologna, Italy found that Leukemia cells exposed to cell phone frequencies (900 mH) for 48 hours replicated aggressively.
Increased Blood Pressure. Researchers in Germany found that one-time use of cell phone for 35 minutes could cause an increase in resting blood pressure of between 5 and 10 mm Hg. Lancet June 20, 1998
Interference with Melatonin production. Electromagnetic radiation appears to interfere with the production of melatonin, the hormone linked with sleep patterns. Low melatonin levels have already been linked to several diseases, including breast and prostate cancers. (Resent research indicates that serotonin production can also be affected by EMF’s).
Interference with the Cellular Communication.Our body cells communicate internally and externally by means of electrical signals. These signals can be altered by EMF radiation (which generates electrical currents within the body) causing changes both cellular activity and cellular structures.
What are the Harmful Effects of EMF’s?
Here are some of the pathological (disease producing) effects attributed to electromagnetic radiation and reported in media (most recent first):
Salivary Gland Cancer.An Israeli study reports that people who used cell phones for 22 hours a month or more were 50 percent more likely to develop parotid gland cancer than those who used cell phones frequently or never.
Brain Tumor An analysis of several previous studies has concluded that cell phones use over 10 years cause an increased risk of acquiring a certain type of brain tumor (2.4 times for acoustic neuroma and 2 times for gliomas).
Lymphatic Cancer and Bone Marrow Cancer. Researchers from the University of Tasmania and the University of Bristol studied records of 850 patients who had been diagnosed with lymphatic and bone marrow cancers. They concluded that people living within 300 meters of a high voltage power line for extended periods (particularly in childhood) were up to five times more likely to develop these diseases later in life.
Other cancer cells.A San Antonio researcher discovered human cancer cells exposed to 60 Hz fields (the frequency of a high-voltage line) grew as much as 24 times as fast as unexposed cells and showed greatly increased resistance to destruction by the cells of the body’s defense system.
Miscarriage. Researchers in California found that EMF’s from electrical appliances (such as domestic vacuum cleaners, hairdryers and food mixers) could significantly increase the risk of miscarriage. (Epidemiology January 2002)
Fertility. Some studies have suggested the transfer of calcium across cell membranes is affected by EMF. This flow governs such processes as egg fertilization, cell division and growth.
Human Growth & Hormones EMF’s may also negatively affect a cell’s natural ability to process hormone, enzyme and other biological activities that regulate normal growth. It has the ability to alter estrogen and testosterone hormones
Suicide. American researchers found that the rate of suicide among 5000 electricity utility workers who were exposed to extremely low frequency EMF’s was double that of a control group of the same size. The effect was particularly noticeable among young workers. (Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine March 15, 2000)
Asthma. A study in California followed 626 children for 13 years. It found that magnetic fields greater than 0.3 mG (average) during pregnancy increased the child’s risk of getting asthma by age 13. A clear dose-response was found. For every mG increase in EMF there was a 15% increased rate of asthma in the children.
This means, for example, that children of mothers whose average exposure was 2 mG during pregnancy were 3.5 times as likely to suffer from asthma during childhood.

How do EMF characteristics affect health?
At this stage we don’t have all the answers, but clues from various studies indicate that EMF health effects may depend on:
EMF Intensity. Exposure to strong EMF’s may cause damage, even though the exposure is of short duration. In one study, researchers asked pregnant volunteers to wear a device which measured the highest intensity (peak) EMF in a 24 hour period. Results indicated that the higher peak EMF’s correlated with higher rates of damage (miscarriage).
Cumulative EMF Exposure. During a normal day a person will be exposed to EMF’s of various frequencies. For example, these could arise from electrical shavers and hairdryers, travelling by cars, bus or train, domestic appliances such as heaters, ovens and microwaves, neon lights, household wiring, power lines, cell phone carrying and use, to name just a few of the more common sources. The combination of these exposures may overwhelm the body defenses and repair mechanisms.
EMF Exposure Duration. Many studies have indicated that various health effects are only noticed after many years of exposure to electromagnetic pollution, for example high voltage power lines, or cell phones.
EMF Transience. It could be more biologically stressful to be exposed to the fluctuating EMF which arises from an electrical appliance which cycles on and off (for example a photocopier or printer) than from a similar appliance that remains steadily on all day.
EMF Frequency. It is not yet known with certainty which electromagnetic frequencies cause which health affects, but it does appear that different frequencies cause different effects.
Superimposed Signals. An electromagnetic wave can be modulated in various ways to carry a signal, which might be digital or analogue. Where the wave is used for communication (e.g. radio, television, mobile telephony etc) it is normal to have a signal imposed on a carrier frequency. There is evidence that, in some cases, the signal component can be more harmful than the carrier wave EMF itself.
Do power lines cause EMF’s?
Power transmission lines used to house and distribute electricity, a s well as radio/microwave transmission, create a subliminal state of constant stress which over time, can cause debilitating effects on the immune system. Man -made EMF’s also paralyses the body’ electrically based healing system.
Some scientists have concluded that power line EMF’s should be classified as a “probable human carcinogen” (cancer causing substance).
Are there particular professions that are subject to more exposure to EMF?
Anyone working in an area surrounded by electrical equipment, near power lines, live or work over geopathic stress areas are subject to more exposure to EMF and its effects.
The following groups need to take extra precautions;
Hospital workers: working in environments with large amounts of electrical equipment and radiation machines, as well as often having electricity backup generators on site, means personal protection is crucial. One or two Geoclenses (depending on size of hospital ) could negate all harmful emissions in the whole area. In addition, wearing or carrying a personal protection pendant provides additional safeguards as well as increasing ones’ own energy when surrounded by sick people. The far-infrared pendant can also be used locally to help heal patients.
Pilots and hostesses – working on aircraft : people travelling by air are subject to very high levels of EMF from within the aircraft, and no more so than those working on planes, especially pilots surrounded by electrical equipment.
Although science, society and the billion dollar companies behind the modern technology may differ in opinion on long term effects of EMF, one thing is certain. As the level of EMF is at an all-time high and rising, so are human diseases, many of which have increased exponentially over the past few decades. Some were not even heard of a century ago. It is only recently that a focus towards looking at the dangers of the ‘conveniences of modern day living’ has been given.
It is a simple decision to take the risk out of the equation for you and your family. Plug back into safe earth energy, and clean the dirty electricity in your environment, with Harmonizers, grounding sheets and pendants. Start feeling the benefits of the energy as nature intended.
