If you’re unlucky enough to be sitting next to certain computer printers in your office, you may as well be sitting next to a cigarette smoker, according to new research….. 

 

toxic particulate matter levels were five times higher inside a non-smoking office building on a workday than they were outside near a freeway. … what was causing this toxic indoor air. ……laser printers. The researchers studied more than 50 such printers and found that half of them emitted tiny particles of toner-like material into the air, in concentrations ranging from low to high….Breathing in these tiny particles has been linked to respiratory illness, heart disease, lung disease and cancer……all used toner instead of ink….”Even very small concentrations can be related to health hazards,” Your risk of exposure, … depends largely on the office building’s ventilation system.

Are You Surrounded by Electronic Smog?

Laser printers are not the only potential risk in your work environment. The electrical fields given off by electronic equipment, including computers, lamps, wiring and more, may also impact your health, according to research ….dubbed “electro-pollution,” charge tiny particles in the air including viruses, bacteria, allergens and more. 

When you breathe in these particles, the electrical charge makes them adhere to the tissue in your lungs and respiratory tract, which can cause infection. Asthma, the flu and other respiratory illnesses can then result.

You can reduce your risk, the researcher said, by making sure laptop computers are “earthed” and unplugging electrical equipment when it’s not being used.

The air isn’t the only thing to worry about in your office. Your computer keyboard is also potentially hazardous…. you may be transferring two or more types of bacteria onto your fingertips while you type. …researchers found that every computer keyboard was contaminated with two or more microorganisms…the bacteria that was found was the type that could be detrimental to hospital patients:

·         All keyboards tested positive for a staph bacterium called coagulase-negative staphylococci. This is one of the most common causes of bloodstream infections among those hospitalized.

·         80 percent of keyboards contained diphtheroids. This bacteria represents a significant infection risk for those whose immune systems are weak, such as cancer and AIDS patients.

Phones, desks and your computer’s mouse may also be potential sources of bacteria.

Growing research reveals that electromagnetic emissions from cell phones, computers and other modern-day gadgets can hinder the body’s weight-regulating mechanisms…..” Researchers worldwide are discovering an unwanted side effect of modern-day conveniences like cell phones, computers, microwaves, TVs, power lines and wireless network: The electromagnetic fields (EMFs) they emit are creating an “electromagnetic smog” called electropollution that’s making women sick—and fat!

“Despite the fact that electropollution has been largely ignored in the United States, research indicates that roughly 35 percent of people in developed countries suffer from a chronic sensitivity to electromagnetic waves, which causes unwanted health effects like fat retention, extreme fatigue, insomnia and depression.”

“The concern is so strong that laws are being put into place in several European countries to limit or ban the use of cell phones among children under age 16 and pregnant women. “For years we’ve heard the ongoing debate about whether or not EMFs raise cancer risk,” … “Though the jury is still out on that, experts worldwide agree that EMFs can damage health in other ways.”

How electropollution hurts

Each of our body’s cells contain special structures called microtubules that are able to sense invisible frequencies like EMFs. “These receptors interpret EMFs from sources like cell phones, wireless towers and even hair dryers as something foreign and dangerous, triggering cell membranes to instantly go into a protective ‘lockdown mode’,” …”What’s more, the constant bombardment from EMFs that most women in this country experience means that the cells stay blocked off indefinitely. “This extended lockdown hinders the vital cell-to-cell communication that underlies all of the body’s functions, including maintaining energy and natural slimming mechanisms like detoxing, balancing blood sugar and regulating appetite,” …”The result: chronic tiredness and stubborn extra weight.”

THE LITTLE CHIP THAT KEEPS YOU SAFE FROM CELL-PHONE AND COMPUTER EMFS

“International research has established that cell phones emit radiation that directly impacts the brain and triggers headaches, tiredness, swelling and more. And even a short call can lead to ill effects: Scientists have found that it takes the body approximately 30 minutes to recover from the harmful effects of being exposed to cell-phone EMFs for just 5 minutes….scientists have developed special chips that reduce the effects of EMF emissions by creating positive frequencies that counteract, or harmonize with, the negative frequencies.

THREE MORE EASY EMP-PROTECTIVE STATEGIES

“1. Step away from the microwave—Microwave ovens are a major source of electropollution, but simply leaving the kitchen when nuking greatly cuts exposure.

2. Keep your phone at least 5 feet from the bed—Cordless phones are a source of EMFs as well, and nighttime exposure can really add up. Also key: Be sure the computer in your bedroom is turned off before you go to be and that any bedroom TV is at least 10 feet away from your bed.

3. Trade in that electric blanket for a comforter—Electric blankets are a well-documented EMF source—one that most experts recommend avoiding altogether.”

If you are sensitive to electromagnetic frequencies, it is becoming harder to know how to avoid them.  If you have physical problems that you do not understand, this could be part of the problem.

Ipods could make your heart Skip a Beat

“…portable music players caused pacemakers to malfunction in 50 percent of patients”

“…the biggest concern is that pacemakers store the history of a heart’s rhythms”…”If a physician was to go back and look at that (history), the physician might think that the patient was having abnormal heart rhythms,”…..One danger is that heart patients might be treated for conditions that aren’t really present… if an iPod stopped a pacemaker from working in a patient who was totally dependent on their pacemaker, it could cause the heart to stop…”

“Many electric devices — such as cell phones, appliances, microwave ovens and high tension wires — can produce the same effect”… “doctors tell their patients not to put any electric device over their pacemaker.”

…”telemetry interference” occurred in 29 percent of the patients, and “over sensing” (a pacemaker misreading the heart’s function) occurred in 20 percent of patients. In one patient, the pacemaker stopped working. In some cases, interference was detected even when the iPods were held as far as 18 inches from the chest…..”people with pacemakers need to be aware of the risk..”

“People commonly strap their iPod to the arm right next to their pacemaker or put it in a shirt pocket. There are quite a few situations where they come in proximity to the pacemaker”…”

“… a cardiac electrophysiologist… agrees that iPods can be a danger to patients with pacemakers….iPods can affect pacing function,” …”There is a possibility for a severe reaction, such as loss of consciousness.”

… “Patients with a pacemaker could safely use an iPod, just don’t put it over the device,”….iPods could also pose a problem for patients with implanted pacemaker defibrillators, …”The possibility would be there for inappropriate shock,”… “shocks are quite painful and traumatic for patients.”

“Does my hybrid have elevated electromagnetic fields? If so, will they hurt my family or me?”

“To date, neither an exhaustive web search nor the services of a crack librarian …have been able to unearth precise measurements of electromagnetic fields, or EMF, in hybrids. What you do with this knowledge, or lack thereof, depends largely upon your personality. Currently, the public can only be sure that the electronics contained in the vehicles meet FCC standards for electromagnetic interference (EMI) with other electronic devices.”
“EMFs come from power lines, televisions, microwave ovens, and (hybrid and conventional) cars.”

This is a little bit off topic, but so many people use these therapies to counteract EMF’s, it seemed important to share what was sent….there are three days left to write to Congress.

“… just spent three days reading, re-reading, researching and discussing the proposed FDA guidelines for “Complementary and Alternative Medicine” with two FDA attorneys. You can download a copy of this proposal for yourself at: http://www.fda.gov/ohrms/dockets/dockets/06d0480/06d0480.htm.

” this FDA attack on complementary and alternative health care, …considered it another “Chicken Little” rumor. On further study, I’m appalled at the speed with which the pharmaceutical companies are implementing Codex Alimentarius in the USA. If you don’t suspect the pharmaceutical companies control the FDA, you may want to research that further by visiting http://www.HealthFreedomUSA.org.

”This insidious proposal is designed to redefine every complementary and alternative health care modality and product as “medicine.” This has direct implications on the services and products provided by every alternative health care professional. There is no facet of complementary and alternative health care that is not affected. If the FDA adopts this proposal, all natural health care would be illegal even for medical doctors.”

”Essential oils, herbs, herbal remedies, homeopathic remedies, minerals, nutritional supplements, plant enzymes and vitamins are redefined in this proposal as “medicine.” Very simply, medicine is under the jurisdiction of the FDA and, by law, only licensed medical doctors may prescribe “medicines.” Anybody else who advises, advocates, counsels, distributes, markets, recommends or suggests anybody use “medicine” is practicing medicine without a license. This is a felony in the USA punishable by fines and incarceration.”

”Aromatherapy, auricular therapy, biofeedback, color therapy, homeopathy, hypnotism, naturopathy, neurotherapy, nutritional consulting, reflexology, sound therapy and wellness consulting are among the alternative health modalities being redefined as “Alternative Medicine.” This subtle change of vocabulary from “alternative health care” to “alternative medicine” makes all of these industries subject to control by the FDA as medicine. Only medical doctors would be allowed to provide, prescribe and supervise the delivery of these services. Anybody else who provided any of these services would be practicing medicine without a license and subject to incarceration and fines.”

”That’s the bad news. The good news is we have until April 30, 2007 to voice our opinion against this proposal to eliminate complementary and alternative health care in America. Almost 100,000 people have already filed their objection….”

”Please stand up and be counted. Go to http://tinyurl.com/2u7ghc and file your petition in support of natural health care, in support of complementary and alternative health care as we know it today. If you require more information, please visit http://www.HealthFreedomUSA.org or read the FDA proposed policy.”

The PH of the Human Body and Electrical Resistance April 14, 2007

“Though many people are vaguely aware that an alkalizing diet is generally healthier than one that causes excess acidity in the body, most people probably do not even know that pH stands for “potential hydrogen,” and they also probably do not know what diseases are caused by pH imbalances nor how diet and herbs affect pH balance”….” The speed of biochemical reactions in the body is affected by the “potential hydrogen” which is measured on a scale of zero to 14, with seven being neutral. Anything below seven is acidic and anything above is alkaline. The main characteristic of alkalinity is electrical resistance, meaning that metabolism is slower and there is also more potential for taking up hydrogen. Acid, on the other hand, is hot and “catabolic”: it results in faster breakdown because electricity travels faster in an acidic environment, an environment that for these and other reasons is less stable than an alkaline milieu… There are many theories of illness, but one of them that is rather widely accepted is that all disease begins in an acidic terrain and is reversed when the conditions supporting pathogenicity are corrected.”

http://www.cancerchecklist.com/food/pH_balance.html

” how might the 20th century have been different if Bechamp had prevailed over Pasteur. …”medicine would have had to focus on diet and immunity rather than germs, vaccines, and drugs. This would have gradually empowered the patient because responsibility for health would be a more personal matter…”

“The milieu is a word for the condition of the body. Often, it refers to one site that is compromised by restricted circulation, old injury, or infection. In the circles where pleomorphism is understood and taken seriously, it is known that specific organisms, what Pasteur called germs, change under differing conditions. The milieu or terrain can be manipulated in such a way as to reverse pathogenicity….”When the pH is imbalanced, organisms change and symptoms of disease begin to appear. For instance, E. coli, an abundant bacterial form, can become salmonella typhi and then mycobacterium tuberculosum, then various yeast forms, and finally the virus ..[is] identified as causing cancer: BX (bacterium X) and then BY (bacterium Y), a virus …in sarcomas”…… “every specialist simply applies the tools he or she know best so one person may rely more heavily on diet, another on herbs or supplements, another on electromagnetic frequencies, and perhaps another on sound or color. The point is simply to recognize that we have considerably more control over the disease process than we imagined since basically we choose our own foods and can self-prescribe a wide range of herbs, most of which are alkalizing.”

“Radiation burns because it vibrates faster than anything else in the body.  Phosphorus is the highest frequency naturally occurring substance in the body….”There are many sources of radiation:  natural and manmade.  We are exposed to radiation from the sun, radon, x-rays, and numerous other unavoidable as well as escapable sources.  For instance, flying in the ozone (37,000 ft.) is equivalent to three-to-five chest x-rays”….”Radiation has a number of different effects on the body.  First of all, it leeches trace minerals. To prevent deficiency conditions from arising, it is important to replace lost minerals.  Otherwise, it seems that the body scavenges for what it needs by cannibalizing bones, teeth, and fingernails.  To know whether or not you are possibly trace mineral deficient, …you can look at your fingernails.  If they are ridged and pitted, odds greatly favor that your bones are not in any better condition.”…Radiation is also toxic.  To pull the poison out of the body, try bathing in half a cup of sea salt and half a cup of baking soda.  Soak for at least 20-30 minutes, every day for three weeks or every other day for six weeks. . . or go on a vacation to the West Indies or South Pacific and swim in the ocean every day for three weeks!  This draws some of the radiation out of the body.  Supplement with trace minerals even if swimming or bathing in salt water.”……”secondary effects of radiation often take many years to manifest clinically…”
