EMR Safety in the House
Electro-magnetic radiation can’t be seen or smelled or touched so most people don’t think much about it, but a growing number of people are becoming affected by the ever-increasing levels that we are being exposed to daily. Ill health related to electromagnetic sensitivity is on the increase for society on a global scale, and includes allergies, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, neurological disorders (such as autism), auto immune system diseases, cancers, and Alzheimer’s Disease.

Some Simple Cost-free Things You Can Do:
- Forward your cellphone to your landline when you get home and then power off (Air-Plane mode) your cellphone.
- Use corded phones, and unplug your cordless phones (from power sources) when not in use, particularly before bedtime.
- Turn off your wireless internet router (Wi-Fi) when not in use, particularly before bedtime – and better yet hardwire your router via Ethernet cable to your computer(s) and disable your modem’s Wi-Fi signal.
- Maintain a distance of at least six feet between your bed and all electrical devices.
- Before bedtime, turn off the circuit breaker that serves your bedroom(s).
