WHAT EXACTLY IS ELECTROSMOG?
Electromagnetic smog is a word that just about everyone has already heard. Why is this issue becoming more and more important for each of us?
The term electromagnetic smog refers to all artificially generated electromagnetic fields in the environment and the resulting permanent exposure of people and the environment to them.
Electromagnetic smog is classified as non-ionizing radiation. This means that the electromagnetic waves do not produce the energy required to remove electrons from atoms or molecules, unlike ionizing radiation such as radioactivity.
It is sub-divided as follows:
- Low-frequency electric and magnetic fields
- High-frequency electromagnetic fields
Electric and magnetic fields in the low-frequency range are generated when electric energy is generated, transported or applied, for example in alternating current circuits and electric appliances.
High-frequency electromagnetic fields are generated by wireless transmission via WiFi or baby monitors. Microwaves in kitchens also use a high-frequency electromagnetic field for heating food.
Electromagnetic fields can be produced artificially, but also occur naturally in the environment. For static and low-frequency fields, the electrical and magnetic components are considered separately. The two components are closely coupled to one another in high-frequency fields, so that we speak of electromagnetic fields.
A good overview of the current state of science concerning electromagnetic fields, their impact on humans and what protective measures are recommended, is available on the website of the German Federal Office for Radiation Protection.
WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES OF ELECTROMAGNETIC SMOG?
Possible consequences are, among other things, extensively described by the ‘Competence Initiative for the Protection of Man, Environment and Democracy’ (Kompetenzinitiative zum Schutz von Mensch, Umwelt und Demokratie e.V.). This non-profit association of scientists and physicians deals with the effects of mobile and wireless communication. A small excerpt from the international doctors’ appeal 2012: ‘Our body consists largely of water and is controlled by bioelectrical impulses. Electromagnetic radiation can interfere with these natural processes. These rays penetrate into the body and prevent optimal cell supply. If we are exposed to artificial electromagnetic fields (called electromagnetic smog or electrosmog), these can have a fundamental impact on biological processes in our body with the following effects:
- Lack of concentration and sleep problems
- Disturbance in the balance of our vegetative nervous system
- Weakening of the immune system
- Metabolic disorders due to hyperacidity and clogging
- Mental strain and stress
All diseases develop within organs at the cellular level
In addition, there are WiFi, Bluetooth and ultrawideband (UWB). These are applications with high-frequency electromagnetic radiation, with the help of which various (mobile) devices for telecommunication and data processing can be interconnected wirelessly.
SMART home solutions for private households and businesses also contribute to an increase in electromagnetic smog. Networked and remotely controllable devices and installations are designed to provide more security and efficient energy use and consequently improve the quality of homes and life in general. However, this convenience leads to further exposure to electromagnetic radiation. The trend of increased exposure to electromagnetic smog is even rising in cars as well. In addition to radiation from Bluetooth, GPS, seat heating and the mobile data of smartphones, the future use of electric cars will further increase passenger exposure because of the electric engine and its battery.
HOW DOES EXPOSURE TO ELECTROMAGNETIC SMOG DEVELOP?
Due to the rapidly advancing digitalization and expansion of electricity networks, exposure to electromagnetic smog is continually increasing in private households, schools, at work and on the road. In particular, the artificially generated low-frequency and high-frequency fields are increasing due to the development of new technologies and their distribution. Cordless DECT phones and smartphones have long become part of everyday life. Many children and teenagers use smartphones, tablets and laptops all day, and the latest devices are at the top of their wish lists. In order to ensure seamless accessibility, more and more mobile phone masts are being built. According to statista.de, more than 7.3 billion cellphones and smartphones are currently in use worldwide. And the numbers are still rising.
Whether at home or on the move – the VIVOBASE FAMILY devices bring effective protection against electromagnetic radiation.
The VIVOBASE FAMILY protects from UMTS, LTE, 3G, 4G, 5G, WIFI, DECT, Bluetooth, GPS, switch-mode power supply units, monitors and other artificially produced fields, as well as from natural fields, such as water veins, faults, and natural and cosmic radiation.
