As you know, I spend a lot of my time getting the word out about the dangers of wireless technology. Electropollution is all around us. A case study distributed a few years ago by Citizens for Safe Technology really drove home the fact that this is an issue we can’t ignore. A German man went to the hospital in a hypertensive crisis. His blood pressure quickly stabilized in the emergency room. Then, after a week in the hospital where his blood pressure normalized, he was allowed to return home—where his blood pressure rose again.
This man's indoor wireless transmitter had been turned off, and the DECT cordless phone disabled, so the ambient radiation levels in his home were low. So, the hypertensive fellow looked to some other environmental culprit for raising his blood pressure. What the gentleman finally discovered was that a second handset charging station was continuing to transmit. So, he’d been unknowingly sleeping in an area where the RF exposure was 140 µW/m2—a level well below industry standards of “safe exposure.”
Once that second charger—which was supposedly deemed “safe”—was disabled, his blood pressure normalized. This documented case adds to the research in the field and also confirms my personal experience of the DECT phone—one of the most commonly used, yet most toxic, cordless phones used worldwide.
This makes sense to me. DECT phones heighten the autonomic nervous system which can affect heart rate variability and blood pressure in sensitive individuals. In fact, a DECT cordless phone caused a medical setback for my son Step when he returned home from his month-long hospitalization. His weakened immune system started backsliding, and it took quite a while for us to question the cordless phone at his bedside. Removing it got him back on his healing track, made us aware of his electro-hypersensitivity, and got him looking at other areas of exposure.
If You Have High Blood Pressure, Your Home May Be the Culprit
If you have high blood pressure, or any chronic illness for that matter, I suggest that you look at your home and work environments for technology health hazards:
Do you have digital cordless phones and their bases scattered around your house?
Do you have cell phones lurking or charging in your sleeping area?
- Do you have Wi-Fi? If so, is it always on or do you turn it off when not in use?
- Do you use video games?
- Do you live in close proximity to a cell tower?
Now it’s your turn: Are you living in a toxic field?
