Many of you may be heading home after a Las Vegas whirlwind of excellent lectures and meeting interesting health professionals from around the world. I met doctors from Italy, New Zealand and Thailand - all interested in what they can learn about recognizing and reducing adverse health effects from EMR exposure.
During my presentation on this topic, I asked if anyone had slept well in the hotel - unmedicated. Only a few people raised their hands. Wish I could have talked to them after three more nights - the EMR effects accumulate.
In our group of pre-con workshop presenters, only one of our panel slept well and he was staying off site in a private home with no Wi-Fi.
One of our technical experts was there and tested the electro-magnetic fields in the hotel, meeting rooms and Expo hall. They were all extremely high – even in my room where I had unplugged the router and cordless phone; the exposures were still very high, as these fields extend a long way.
One of the side effects from these exposures is sleep disruption, part of this is due to suppression of melatonin.
I would be interested in hearing from you how well you slept - compared to how well you usually sleep at home.
If your home is Wi-Fi, you have the base of a cordless phone within 25 ft of your bedroom, and/or a cell phone still in its sending/receiving mode in the bedroom - you may not sleep well at home either.
As you know, deep sleep is crucial to our health for restoring the immune system and many other maintenance and repair functions.
Is this one reason why insomnia and other sleep disorders are on the rise?
Maybe it's not just the caffeine, stress and busyness of our lives.
Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, a well known physician and one of our panel, suggests turning off the circuit breakers at night so even the electric fields from household wiring are eliminated.
(I will tell you later what Dr. Klinghardt has to say about EMR and pre-natal health and children on the Autism Spectrum.)
May I suggest you unplug all electronics, at least, and see if your sleep improves?

I could not agree more. I have recently done a lot of research into the effects of EMF's … what I have found has alarmed me enough to have me start a ePetition to lobby government here in the UK to do studies on the acce-table levels that we should be exposed to. I am not expecting much to be done unfortunately.
I have called back as I really would like to share a video that I edited. It is from a group of Scientists following a meeting that took place back in 2009..!!!!

￼A top Swedish scientist, Professor Olle Johansson, PHD adds his voice to those warning against Wi-Fi in schools.
I am in full agreement that no device is currently available that will stop all harmful effects, and you are certainly right to point that out. We are not able to be 100% safe not in the short term. We are without doubt at danger and action needs to be taken.
