How's you and your family's health and sleep these days?
Not sleeping so well, maybe? Fuzzy brain? Strange moods swings? Headaches?
Heart flutters? New, unexplained symptoms? Doctors having difficulty
Like to get your health back? Or not risk losing it, or it worsening??
Incredibly, our latest phones, WiFi, etc. may well be causing (or exacerbating) these problems; and our
sensitivities are getting worse over time with the new constant and
People all over the world are unknowingly being affected by the new pulsing microwave smog around us, in
ever increasing numbers, but we are finally realising what's up!
Who would ever suspect that innocent little cordless phone, WiFi router or 'pretty' mobile phone mast
outside being the cause? Most people just never make the connection (excuse the pun!)
And even if NONE of this seems to apply to you or your
family, you may well be storing up problems for the future, since all those of us regular folk
suffering now were also 'fine' for a long time; but the constant exposure has eventually had its effect.
It's actually MUCH better to take precautions BEFORE symptoms kick
in, since by then it's getting pretty serious and you can rapidly find yourself unable to
function properly in today's world or at work.
Creating a microwave-free haven at home gives your body the essential
recuperation time it needs, especially important while you sleep!
NB Particularly dangerous in the UK, in our experience,
are the older BT Home Hubs, and I have a special section on them
- if you (or your neighbours) have one, find out morehere
Our new, beloved wireless technologies send out short bursts/pulses of microwaves tens to hundreds of times a second. Even though their power is LOW, our bodies
are mostly water and so absorb these microwaves READILY (unlike radio waves, say) (This, of course, is how
microwave ovens work: water absorbs microwaves).
Now, just like an singer can shatter a wine glass with their voice through resonance (not the
power of the sound), so too, when our bodies/ cells/ nerves/ brains resonate with the
frequencies of those pulses, it can cause anything from mild disorientation to symptoms so serious that
people are becoming disabled and unable to function anymore (though usually get better when removed from
this new 'electrosmog').
For example, I cured my own severe heart arrhythmias at night, as well as general disorientation during the
day, by replacing our neighbour's digital cordless (DECT) phone with a 'safe' version (see story below).
I'm also regularly meeting people whose lives are totally transformed by taking action on this
knowledge; so I know, 100% it's serious and for real (however much our 'trusty' corporations and governments
try to reassure us otherwise - far too much money and investment involved to admit it).
Hearing is believing and understanding Hearing the SOUNDS
that our various Pulsing Microwave devices make usually hits home with people; it's almost as if our bodies
recognise and wish to get away from these quite disturbing frequencies. This video demonstrates the same sounds
as the MW1 Electrosmog Detector that I carry around, of everyday wireless devices: mobile phone mast, WiFi
Router, DECT Cordless Phone base station and SMART meter -
"This really brings it home! On my 3rd day in a new job I

towers each side of building, wifi router, antenna/base station directly above my head, 100 or
so employees using blue tooth.They can have my work, but not my life. I
quit after 1 month. Now symptom free."
"My back garden backs DIRECTLY onto a

ears exploding , hot like as of using a mobile phone , my forehead has a band around it of pain ,
i already am a sick man and in the last 6 months weirder physical s**t kicking
"We have gotten rid of WiFi here in our home and we
also rejected the smart meter. Since we have gotten rid of WiFi I sleep a
lot better and think a lot clearer. I have a baby living in the
house and I'm not risking her health for convenience."

than whether this irradiation effects or disturbs you electrically or
biologically. Authorities actually state that they are so 'confident' that non-thermal biological

Bottom Line to improve
health (or guard against future problems):
Check if any current symptoms improve when well away from sources, such as deep in
countryside, or by:
- Immediately turning off ALL your home sources of Pulsing
Microwaves, at least for a few days...
and certainly at night and...
whenever you're not using them (at the very least get them well away from your
sleeping area, and if possible, working area)
Here's a brief list of the main sources:
>your home digital (DECT) cordless phone base

to disable it - it's irradiating you 24/7 with STRONG microwaves!
- find an alternative asap (e.g Siemens Gigasets with ECO mode plus or a simple corded

baby - a strong DECT transmission right next to them
- please throw it away (and find an FM analogue one instead)
> your mobile phone / smartphone -
Disable WiFi, Mobile Data and Bluetooth functions when not using (they irradiate you constantly)
- reduce usage to an absolute minimum (emergencies only?)
- use a handsfree earpiece or the in-built speakerphone
- don't leave on at night, e.g next to bed, or horrors of horrors - under your

really want to subject others to your own electrosmog emissions (whether family, friends, neighbours or
passers-by) if there's even the slightest chance of the irradiation being
There was a day when everyone would smoke everywhere without
even giving other people around a second thought (and people were laughed at if they complained) - now
it's clearly taboo to impose one's own (smoke) pollution upon another. It's exactly the same with pulsed
microwave pollution - it's just a question of WHEN individuals will decide to act responsibly towards
others (as well as themselves).
Some people are already so sensitive that they clearly have
to avoid going within metres of anyone else making a mobile phone call, or they get sick; many others
are already being affected and not noticing or knowing why - yet!
I go into all these in much greater depth below, but first...

People may be affected in many different ways. Some of the reported health
effects from this type of radiation are one or more of the following:
Neurological: - Mild disorientation, loss of concentration
- Excessive yawning, drowsiness
- Irritability, sudden Anger, 'emotional' no reason
- Memory and concentration difficulties
- Depression/anxiety attacks
- Numbness/tingling/pins and needles
- Muscle and joint pains
- Speech problems (e.g speaking rubbish)
- Muscle tension and fatigue
- Shooting pains
- Soreness/stiffness in joints and spine
Cardiac: - Heart pains/palpitations
- Shortness of breath
- Heart arrhythmias
- High blood pressure.
- Itchy/ dry/ like grit in eye
- Pressure in the eyes
- Deteriorating vision
Ringing sounds/ tinnitus
- Hearing loss
- Pressure in the ears
Skin problems/ irritations
- Digestive problems
- Dehydration (need to drink lots of water)
- Swollen lymph nodes
- Impaired sense of smell
- Light sensitivity
- Increased allergies/ sensitivities
- Pulsating pressure/aches/pains around
the head, face and sinuses
- general feeling of impending 'flu
Research has also pointed to an increased
likelihood of long-term effects, including: -
- Neurological diseases
- Genetic effects such as male sterility
- Miscarriage and birth defects
- Thyroid dysfunction
- Bleeding disorders
and last but not
least: - significantly decreased sperm
It is also known that microwave radiation
penetrates children's bodies more than an adult; so the possible
long-term effects on young, developing children are of particular concern.
Like many people I meet now, I was getting severe heart arrhythmias at night (missing heartbeats, strong and
weak heartbeats and double heartbeats), sleeping restlessly and also feeling groggy and disorientated on rising
in the morning.
I was obviously seriously concerned that I might be about to have a heart attack and considered many
possibilities as to its cause: was it my diet, was I not getting enough exercise, was it just my age (I'm
in my 50s)?
I didn't even consider microwaves because I thought there weren't any in my home. We
don't even get a mobile phone signal here, and having cleared our own house of all microwave devices and having
used my microwave detector to establish no detectable radiation from our semi-detached neighbour (except right
next to the party wall), I had already psychologically dismissed Pulsed Microwaves as a potential cause of my
However, when one day that I read that heart arrhythmias are a typical sign of pulsed microwave
sensitivity, I immediately suspected next door's digital cordless DECT phone as the possible
Now, don't laugh, but I surrounded my bed with several large pieces of A2 card covered with a few of
layers of thick aluminum foil (since foil is pretty good at reflecting microwaves back). I put these both under
the mattress and on the two sides pointing towards the direction of next door's DECT phone base station which I
knew to be one floor down and about 10 metres away.
To my absolute delight, I slept like a baby that night and woke up refreshed and clear headed again
for the first time in months, if not years!
It turns out that my Pulsed Microwave "Electrosmog Detector" was just not
sensitive enough to be able to detect these microwave pulses from next door at such a low,
but still clearly dangerous, levels.
(This has been recognised by the manufacturer who has plans to launch a new detector
at least five times more sensitive (down to 0.01V/m) and at a very reasonable consumer price (~£25).
When available (hopefully by mid-2013) they can be found here: http://www.detect-protect.com
and specifically, the info on the old one (now discontinued in readiness for the new one) can be
foundhere (they were just £60 and I wouldn't be
without my MW1 Electrosmog Detector now - still on eBay
Realising that many more symptoms that my partner, Leela, and I were experiencing could be related, we
took the bold step of asking our neighbours if they wouldn't mind doing us a huge favour and change their DECT
cordless phone system with a safe one that we would buy and supply for
Thankfully, they very kindly agreed to do this. I bought them a Siemens Gigaset system with the "ECO
Mode Plus" function, set it all up to ensure that the ECO Mode Plus function was indeed enabled (it is buried
quite deep within the phone's menus!) and handed it over to them. (clickhere for more detail)
We instantly felt clearer in our heads, a bit like turning the air-conditioning off when you don't
really realise it's on and that you immediately notice when it goes off. We both felt that the air was suddenly
clear, like walking in the countryside, and soon other small symptoms disappeared too, such as general
disorientation and skin problems.
And I've not missed a heartbeat at night since!!
Postscript: I had a close relationship with these wireless Pulsed Microwave technologies for many
years before they began to have a noticeable effect on me.
Even though some people can and do get affected quickly, for many of us their
detrimental effect accumulates gradually over time - getting worse so insidiously slowly
that one just doesn't imagine that deteriorating healthproblems might be associated
with Pulsed Microwave sources.
I suspect that our strong response to our neighbour's DECT phone - we got to the point where we
could hardly bear to be in the house with it on - was a result of our long term exposure and build up of
And it's not just me: a recent double-blind study
proved heartbeats can raise from a steady 68 beats per min to an erratic 122 bpm and back to 66 bpm instantly
when a nearby DECT base station is secretly switched on and off. Click Here for full details of this extremely important and fascinating
The Good News
The good news is that if these non-stop pulsing microwaves are affecting you, when you remove yourself
from them most people tend to recover quite quickly - within hours or days. The bad news is that constant
exposure seems to increase sensitivity over time and that sensitivity doesn't go away so fast (if you get back
near pulsing microwaves, you still get affected).
However, sensitivity may well decrease over time with longer periods away from exposure.
Plus, generally detoxing one's body as well as getting fit helps a lot too (there's growing agreement that
too many toxic 'heavy metals' in our bodies can create or worsen electrosensitivity as microwaves
interact with them).
There are, of course, many other reasons why you can feel under par or tired. For example, I had all
my mercury amalgam filings taken out (with specialist dentist), and detoxed mercury for a while and that really
helped me when I had M.E. (Chronic Fatigue); but that's all another story ...
Nevertheless - even if the primary cause of your symptoms is something else
entirely - exposure to Pulsed Microwaves can exacerbate your symptoms and weaken your own health, immune system
and recovery ability. It makes even more sense to ensure an electrosmog-free life when already sick from
Within just a few years we have become immersed in a new smog of non-stop pulsing microwaves.
Obviously the long term effects of this cannot yet be known, but if the short term effects on many, many
people all over the world are any gauge, it's already a very serious problem!
The main issue appears to be the rates at which these microwaves are PULSING. They go on and
off in bursts, from a few times a second to several hundred times. It is clearly these pulsing rates that
set up resonant effects in our own (electrical) nervous and biological systems and create problems.
It is not the power (which IS low), but just as singer can shatter a glass with the right pitch of
voice, so too, as our bodies absorb microwaves (which they do, being mostly water!) the cells and nerves
and DNA start to vibrate with the pulsing frequencies, by resonance, and this starts to
The second problem is there's no escape for recovery time as many sources are literally
Always On. When it's non-stop, the aggravation builds up and up with no
respite. Some who are affected can cope well if they can just sleep in a completely clean/quite area, so
at least they can recuperate at night (i.e. at a minimum, it's worth turning off everything listed below
Know your Sources of pulsing
home - irradiating you all day, every day (and
night), even when not used!
not non-stop at home - irradiating you
only when used
outside (masts etc.) - irradiating you all day, every day (and night)
First, those sources directly in
your control: easy to fix and often the most damaging:
Non-stop pulsing microwaves sources at
1) Digital home cordless (DECT) phones
If you have a cordless phone at home (or work) it is almost
certainly DECT microwave based and a menace (older FM ones are ok but almost extinct now - they
have 12" aerials and sound pretty fuzzy ).
Now, here's the amazing thing: the base stations of these pretty much ubiquitous home cordless
phones are irradiating you constantly 24/7 with
high-powered non-stop Pulsing Microwaves whether you use them for calls or not! They are high power so
that they reach up to 300m and not that much different from a mobile phone mast outside your window, but
INSIDE your home!
Problems with these DECT phones used to be reported in press, but rarely these days, here are
Note that sometimes DECT base stations are hidden in Answering Machines, and still they are
irradiating you 24/7 with non-stop pulsing microwaves whether you use them for calls or not!
a)Turn off the DECT base
stationat the mains (and then dump it
asap!)(or at least at night or when not using it to give you recovery time while
b) Just go back to wired/corded
phones, they still work! Just type "corded phone" into ebay or amazon (or find them in
your attic/at car boot)!
c) For our home phone, we even find there are stray signals coming down the
phone line and so have a little difficultly with corded handsets on long calls (it starts to hurt
- a bit like holding a mobile next to our ear).
So, I have an old FM Cordless Analogue
phone which we use instead, and we are absolutely fine with it (they can be
identified by having aerials that extend over 12" on both the handset and the base). These do NOT
transmit 24/7 - only FM analogue signals which seem fine (not microwave and not pulsed). Yes, they
are NOT as clear as digital DECT phones, but they do work well enough and are so much better than DECT
- i.e. they are SAFE!
They are hard/impossible to find new now, but check your attic, car boot sales and
charity shops. I got mine from a Charity Shop - a BT Freestyle 1500plus (including
answering machine) for just £2.50, and it works a treat!
Update: even the FM handset can hurt our ears now, yet with Skype (below) it's perfect!
d) But really, we don't actually use our home line much;
we do all our calls on Skype on our PCs. For a
small fee we get free calls to UK landlines and our own landline number for people to call us on
(regular landline rates). This is far more convenient, has great facilities, like being able to
use from any PC anywhere, voice messaging, contact list, record of all calls, etc. etc. But the
main thing is that the call quality is so superb - it makes plain old telephone lines sound
awfully dull in comparison. The downside is that your laptop/PC needs to be on (though free
voicemail will take messages). Of course, if you know others with Skype, all calls to them are
free, even video calls with your webcam - very nice - and the crystal clear sound really DOES
make ordinary phones sound very muffled!
e) If you really can't bear any of the above, there are special DECT phones
that are low radiation and do not transmit 24/7, but only when you're on a call (sorry, not in US/ Canada) and at reduced power too. There's really only one
choice and that is the Siemens Gigaset phone with DECT ECO Mode
Plus; see here for my info about these phones
and a video proving irradiation does stop between calls.
NOTE: don't be fooled by other makes that claim to be
'eco-friendly', 'low power' or 'low radiation' - they ALL still
transmit Pulsed Microwaves 24/7, even if at a reduced level. Siemens Gigaset with ECO Mode
Plus is the ONLY one to stop transmission
between calls and when the handset has not been returned to its base or charger (and not just in
its ECO Mode - it must be in the ECO ModePlus).
NB not long ago, 'Orchid phones' were the only ones to do this, but are now discontinued,
probably because they had reliability problems and were expensive.
Anyway - I would NEVER get these for our own use as the handsets still transmit
strong Pulsed Microwaves when ON a call, and do feel like a mobile phone next to our ears (since that's
essentially what they are) BUT they are great to give to your neighbours if you want to protect
yourself and minimise their disruption! (They can be bought in UK off ebay very cheaply!) Also,
great to take with you when traveling to replace your friends' or maybe the guest houses' DECT
phone while you are there.
2) WiFi base stations/routers (and computers)
When I stand within a few feet of a WiFi base station my heart starts beating
irregularly, I feel pressure on my chest and I get disorientated; this because WiFi internet
routers/ base stations also emit strong and constant Pulsed Microwave
A good friend has a WiFi broadband router very near the computer he works at for much of the
day.One day I noticed he was looking pretty grey and was complaining of being tired from
'too much work'. I persuaded him to turn off the WiFi in his router and, low and behold, a week later he
was looking his usual, vibrant self again. He did not believe it had anything to do with the WiFi. A couple
of months later I noticed him looking drawn and grey again; we checked his router and someone had turned it
back on (too lazy to use a cable)! We turned it off again and he was soon look very healthy again.
After the third time this happened, he did start to believe there may be a link and we
took steps to permanently disable the WiFi. He's looked (and felt) great ever since!His
physical reactions were quite subtle; had it not been for me he would never have connected it to the
But, others can get severely disabled very quickly from WiFi: Steve Miller, aka the DJ
'Afterlife', (who also lives in Cornwall and I can confirm is for real!) is a world renowned
chill out producer and recording artist; his problems with WiFi arose from the very first time he was
exposed to it in a studio: - read Steve's excellent personal story
- read the Daily Mail article Steve referred to:http://tinyurl.com/dailymail-wifi-agony
- Steve is also a trustee at radiationresearch.org
Personally, I find WiFi not as disabling as a DECT base station, but
still can't bear to be in the same room, and preferably not same house as a WifI router! I do get
disoriented and can't focus from next door's WiFi if I stay indoors all day - we're semi-detached - but,
for us, it's nowhere near the problem we had with their DECT phone base station; whereas Steve
Miller, mentioned above, finds WiFi much more disabling than DECT base stations.
It's not clear why some people react more than others to the different pulsing frequencies of
the various technologies.
Many libraries and schools in UK and Europe have dismantled their WiFi networks to return to
cables after health and concentration problems in both staff and children/ visitors. Other countries are
getting ahead, for example, Paris has dismantled all the WiFi in its libraries and gone back to wired
Note that WiFi adaptors in computers, laptops, smartphones, Kindles, TVs
etc. also emit pulsed microwaves - when they are in use (such as when streaming video) they emit
constantly and at high power, when connected but not in use (eg no downloading or web access) they
emit short bursts every few seconds and when not in use at all (not connected to a WiFi base station), they
do still emit strong pulses every several seconds. There is a real problem, especially with laptops,
smart phones, etc. with having these transmissions so close to the body; best is to disable the
card/adaptor. Men should be particularly aware of keeping them well away from their groin, as there's much
research that points to an association with the recent decreases in sperm count.
Try googling: WiFi Dangers that'll keep you busy again!
NB Click here if you have a BT Home Hub
wireless router/modem in UK - it may have a DECT base station built in too.
WiFi Solutions A) Base
Your broadband router is almost certainly transmitting WiFi Pulsed Microwaves constantly too, even
when you don't use it. But in almost all routers it can be turned off in the software - accessed through
your internet browser with an address like 192.168.1.254 - usually under "Turn Wireless Off or On" or
"Enable or Disable Wireless" - see router manual. (Except, in UK, BT Home Hubs 1.0 1.5 and
2.0 - see here )
How to tell if your router is WiFi or not: generally they have one or
two aerials on the back, but not always: new wireless routers don't have antennas anymore. If “WiFi” or
“WLAN” is written somewhere on the router or one of the LED lights is labeled “WiFi” or “WLAN" or
"Wireless" then you do have a wireless router. If not then it is more than likely it is not wireless.
Check the manufacturer’s website using your router’s model number to be sure-, or Google to find its
specifications. If still not sure, email me the
router make and model and I'll check for you.
Below there are TWO viable options for turning OFF your
WiFi and avoiding the constant microwave pulsing of WiFi base stations and also your
computers. Bonus: BOTH options are faster and more
reliable than wireless!
But first -Stop Press: It appears that some modern WiFi Routers
will re-enable the Wireless after automatic
firmware upgrades and you won't know about it (or even keep transmitting when
Five options for dealing with this problem:
1) Replace WiFi wireless router with a cable only/non-wireless router (safest option)
2) Buy an Electrosmog/Microwave meter to check constantly that WiFi still off (it's good to
get the meter, but do keep checking, and it's handy to
detect new sources arriving).
3) You may be to disable automatic updates if the router firmware allows
it. 4) Regularly enable the wireless adapter BRIEFLY on your
computer and check if your wireless router appears.
5) Regularly check the router software/wireless LED to check that it hasn't suddenly enabled
NO WiFi - OPTION 1) Just use Ethernet networking cables
The easy way is to route them around the side of room, up and down stairs, or out
through windows/ vents around the house and back in through another window (they squash quite
easily) - messy, but so much better than WiFi. Or you can do it properly by drilling walls etc.
Cables are also faster and more reliable than wireless.
Very long network cables are incredibly cheap, e.g, search ebay, amazon etc.
for network cable, or see ebuyer:http://www.ebuyer.com/search?page=1&q=cat5+cable&subcat=2427 Look down left side for the length you want e.g 30 metres - from only £7 or
Top Tip: Always get the 'snagless' ones as they have little covers over the delicate plug clips to stop
them being broken off as you move them around.
Note: you may find that some routers lose connection on very long cables, perhaps greater than
20m. I have found this occasionally with cheaper cables on some PCs and with some cheaper routers,
including the BT Home Hub 3.0. So, what I do is use a separate quality 'network hub' to power them.
They come in 4 port, 5 port, 6 port, 8 port and even higher. Simply plug all your network cables into
one network switch hub, including the network cable from your router, and you should have no more
problems! You can get them from £10 - just search for 'network switch' in ebay, amazon, ebuyer
Another handy option if you need several computers connected some way from the router is to
run just one long cable and plug the remote end into a network switch hub and, on a 4 port hub, you'll
have 3 or more sockets left for plugging in more computers (in an outside office, for
NO WiFi - OPTION 2) HomePlug / Powerline EthernetNetwork Adapters
Please NOTE - some electrosensitive people do report severe reactions to using these,
even though they don't use microwaves - it's because they put high frequencies over the mains circuits,
producing electromagnetic fields which can also affect us! So use with caution. (Long ethernet cables
are also the best choice I believe!)
-Combine Ethernet cables and networking over your 240V mains circuits.
Yes, you can use your mains cabling as a network to link up computers all over your
house/premises (typically up to 200m away) with special plug-in adaptors.
PARTICULARLY good for people renting, say, who can't drill walls etc. for permanent
You need at least two: one to plug your router into and one for each room
where you want to plug your computer into the network (with network cables).
As it's been said by some that the faster 200Mbps / 500Mbpsones are potentially disturbing and maybe
best avoided, for prudence sake it may be best to stick with
the slower 85Mbps ones if you can still find
them (plus they are cheaper!). There's probably no extra benefit in using the faster ones
as your network is most likely only running at 100Mbps anyway. So,
You can get them from Amazon and Ebay etc,
but here's a good source for those in UK:
- click here for their Homeplug adaptor page
UPDATE _ They now do only the faster 200Mbps and 500Mbps, again, probably best to stay with the slowest ones,
especially if you can still find 85Mbps elsewhere, eg on eBay
DON'T FORGET TO DISABLE WIFI in your WiFi router (and computers) or you'll have wasted your efforts!
CAREFUL: Just DON'T get these:
Just be careful NOT to buy Wireless Access Point WiFi repeaters
by mistake - they plug into the mains too but act as transmitters
to strengthen WiFi signals around the home and so make things WORSE!
B) - WiFi cards/ adapters in PCs and laptops
Now, you also need to disable the WiFi in
your laptop or Computer, so you won't be having regular WiFi microwave pulses signals being
emitted very close to you.
There's often a button on laptops specifically for this (since the adaptor uses power and turning
it off saves battery life). Or, this is done manually by finding the Network
Adaptorsscreen (probably via Control Panel)
and when you can see the actual WiFi adaptor, just Right Click it and choose Disable. Then,
if ever you need a short burst of WiFi you can go back and enable it, (but don't forget
to disable it after!)
Click here for a short video (no audio) to demonstrate how to do it in Windows (and to
put a shortcut on your desktop for easy enabling/disabling)
Still not sure how? Just Google, for example: How do I disable wifi in windows XP
4) Mobile internet USB
'Dongles' and USB Wireless Adapters
Connecting to the internet via a mobile 'dongle' is becoming very
popular. Unfortunately, they are like miniature mobile phones and transmit strong signals: particularly
dangerous when plugged straight into your laptop or computer as they are then so CLOSE to your
Solution: a wired connection is ALWAYS preferable, but if you really have no other choice then
another option is to connect the dongle onto the end of a long USB 2.0 extension cable and then dangle
your dongle (!) out of a window, or on your roof, or somewhere behind some protective material or
aluminium foil; though do be aware of keeping it well away from other people/ children too :)
You can get quality USB 2.0 extension cables off ebay for a few
pounds; they will extend up to 5 metres in length maximum, and if you get a 5 meter USB 2.0 Active
Repeater Hub/Cable too you can add the extension cable to the repeater cable to double that to 10
metres! (Here is one I found on Amazon which has BOTH the repeater and the extension for
just £8 - you can find more by simply searching for "usb 2.0 extension 10m" in ebay, Amazon, etc.) I
have a friend who is so sensitive to mobile phone signals that cannot accept or make ANY calls on a
mobile phone without getting severely affected; however, he seems to manage with a dongle on a long
extension lead fine!
NB Don't use any old USB extension cables - they must not be USB
1.1 or inferior quality or you may get problems on longer lengths.
USB Wireless Adapters You can adopt the same technique to use your
laptop or computer for WiFi - WITHOUT being close to the WiFi
transmissions of your own computer's Wireless Adapter. This
would be in the case where you can use someone else's WiFi (such as a free local service) - it's not
really for connecting to your own WiFi router as there will still be SO much radiation from the router
anyway - just use a network cable instead!
Here's how it works:
Buy a USB Wireless Adapter and USB 2.0 extension cable(s) as
DISABLE your own computer's Wireless Adapter (if you have one) via
the Control Panel and Networking functions
Simply Plug in the Wireless Adapter into the USB extension leads and
again, hang it well away from you our of a window, say.
5) Alert: BT Home Hubs (pre Home Hub 3.0)
Are you a BT Broadband customer? If so, you will almost certainly have a BT
Home Hub - these represent a particular danger, with their built-in powerful DECT base station that
cannot be turned off and is irradiating your house 24/7, even when it's not supplied with a BT DECT
Handset to use it!
Note if you've had your BT Home Hub delivered from Feb. 2011
onwards, it's probably a Home Hub 3.0 which is safer, in that it has no DECT base station anymore (and
WiFi can be switched off)
for more of my BT Home Hub information and personal experiences, and here for how to identify you BT
Home Hub and what your options are, including upgrading yourself to a BT Home Hub 3.0
(though any make of router will work fine on BT
This definitely one to tell your friends about!
6) Babies and Baby
Alarms/Monitors - eek - ALARMING!
Pretty little Baby Alarms are essentially DECT base stations
transmitting powerful DECT Pulsed Microwaves throughout your house... and
the cot; implicated in SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), they are REALLY bad to have in your
baby's cot. Only fit for sledge hammer treatment!
Baby Alarms/Monitors - solutions
FM analogue ones are still available, I found one on ebay for my
granddaughter. Find them by searching for analogue baby monitor at Amazon, etc.
Don't take risks with your babies! If not convinced, read this on DECT Baby Monitors from familiesonline.co.uk.
7) Smart Phones/Pad - iphones/ipads, Blackberries, HTC
Android, etc. BEWARE: Mobile Data Transfers, WiFi and Bluetooth
A so-called 'Smart' phone/pad is now so much more than just a mobile phone, with many
more microwave applications and implications. So, they will be emitting a LOT more radiation than a
normal mobile phone; they too can be CONSTANT and you will often be keeping
it very close to your body and so this is a significant risk to
take. OMG - some people even sleep with them on their bedside table, or even - horror of horrors - under
To manage these new dangers you will need to get to know their settings menus to find
out how to quickly enable and disable microwave functions listed below, as soon you need
access to Internet/ Data Services. When you are in data mode/ connected to mobile data
networks (i.e. you can browse the internet, or connect to traffic or map services, etc. etc.) it means
that your phone is pretty much CONSTANTLY connecting via pulsed microwaves to the internet for data
services. Even when you're not doing any direct accessing, they are STILL connecting and
communicating with quite a lot of pulsed microwave activity.
Solution: Disable access to mobile data
networks - unless you REALLY need urgent access, then enable it and keep it short
before turning access OFF again (don't forget to do that bit!)
access Another way people use to access the internet, their
email, etc. is via a WiFi hotspot. When enabled, your cute little phone/pad is acting like a
full WiFi terminal (like a laptop does); and, again, having it so close to you can be very
These days, it is a very tempting option when there are son many free WiFi Access
Solution: Again, Disable access to WiFi
networks - unless you REALLY need urgent access, then enable it and keep it
short before turning access OFF again (don't forget to do that bit!)!
c)Bluetooth connection to peripherals, such as Earpiece/ Headset,
Printers, Keyboards, etc. Almost ALL these devices have Bluetooth
Class 2 functions, usually Enabled by default. See Bluetooth section below for more info., but
remember: even though Bluetooth is relatively lower power, being constantly CLOSE to the source makes
them exponentially more dangerous.
Solution: Disable Bluetooth function
permanently! Headsets can be wired, and most else can be done via a computer, etc. There should
really be NO need to have Bluetooth enabled at all - unless you REALLY need short urgent access, then
enable it and keep it short before turning access OFF again (don't forget to do that
d)iPhone, iPad and Blackberry
Specifically: iPhones, iPads and Blackberries are said to also have continuous 'piggy-backing'
emissions (as well the usual transmissions described above). This is so that other nearby iPhones,
iPads and Blackberries not in range of a cell tower can actually piggy-back through yours and so get a
connection. In this way they are a bit like miniature WiFi hubs that work together to create little
networks to get out-of-range users to a mobile mast!
Solution: because there's no known way to turn this
function off the only ways are to either put the phone in Airplane Mode, turn
it OFF or buy another
device! UPDATE: Now it's not even clear if turning it OFF will stop the piggyback function, but putting
it in Airplane Mode should do - then turn it off!
e)Mobile Phone functions And
yes, your iPad etc. can also be used as a mobile phone! See section on mobiles below, as
all that applies too!
f) Using in a
Car Note that the special concern about using mobiles inside a car (because they have
to transmit higher power to get out of the metal cage of the car) is significantly greater with all
these other services enabled too, especially as THEY are pretty much continuous.
LEAVING DATA NETWORKS MODE ENABLED IS PARTICULARLY BAD! My Electrosmog meter goes
mad when data networks are enabled - yes, especially if I'm actually using data mode to
(briefly) pick up an email, say, but even when I'm NOT using data - there seems to be a constant chatter
/ transmission going on! Be sure to disable you Mobile Data Networks function when NOT in use as it
increases your exposure SIGNIFICANTLY - even when not being used - and this of particular concern when
being kept next to your own body.
NOTE: Airplane mode is GREAT for all
handheld devices - you can be sure ALL transmissions are OFF and no danger of being fried by the
For example, I use my HTC Android in my car for its SatNav
function and so keep it in Airplane Mode, as my CoPilot SatNav does NOT need to be connected to a mobile
network (unlike Google Navigation, for example - although I think you can download the maps needed for
your trip in advance now). Then when I stop, I get OUT of the car, switch Airplane Mode off, check
messages (using hands free speaker phone or wired headset) and then turn Airplane mode back on
By the way, turning off these functions
may well save you money for data transfer charges and make the battery last
8) Bluetooth: Handsfree kits, headsets, mice, keyboards,
Surprise, surprise! Bluetooth is also based on Pulsing Microwaves, but at
very much lower power, and many report that they can get on with, say, Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, or
even a headset, where they can't cope with DECT/ WiFi/ mobile phones etc. But I would never put
one in my ear: directing pulsing microwaves directly into your ear canal seems to
be asking for it! People do report headaches etc. from extended Bluetooth use, who
knows what the long term effects could be. I prefer to keep exposure all sources of microwaves to an
And, more complication: it depends on which CLASS of Bluetooth you have:
Class 1 - high power - range is up to 100 metres - peak power 100 mW
Class 2 - mid power - range is up to 10 metres - peak power 2.5 mW (most
Class 3 - lower power - range is up to 5 metres - peak power 1 mW
it's not always easy to find the Class, but if you Google the model name followed by the word:
class - you may well find it mentioned somewhere.
Avoid Class 1 altogether! And even though Class 2 and 3are
much lower power than DECT, WiFi and mobile phones, say, for the sake of prudence and
precaution I suggest avoiding Bluetooth altogether; and that also means
disabling it in your laptop, computers, mobile phones, etc. See manuals for how to do this; in laptops
there's typically an icon in the bottom right 'system tray' which you can right click to
Note: most wireless mice and keyboards are now 'Bluetooth' or 'operating in the 2.4GHz
range' (same as a microwave oven), so stay with wired or the older FM frequency models (if you can be
sure they are indeed FM).
9) GPS / SatNav with
Be aware that, increasingly, many SatNav devices come with Bluetooth now; this is
of particular concern, again, inside a car as the car body acts a bit like a microwave oven - bouncing
the microwaves all around inside the car and intensifying the danger. Of those that do, some
can disable the Bluetooth microwaves transmission, some may not, you'll have to research your
10) Cars now with
Also, be aware that since 2004, increasingly, many cars are now coming with
Bluetooth service installed (or as on optional extra). Currently, the functions are for enhanced
and integrated audio, entertainment and mobile phone systems. However, there's also talk of
using Bluetooth to replace wiring looms for the remote function of locks, lights and potentially
all the car's equipment - phew!! That's one to keep an eye on.
Solution: check with manufacturers if
the model you are considering is Bluetoothed and if it is, if and how it can be disabled (if at
11) Games Consoles
Some Games Consoles, like Wii and Xbox 360 have low power non-stop pulsing microwaves to and from the
controllers, even when turned OFF!!
At a minimum, it's best turn those off at MAINS when not actually in use (the only
reason the transmissions stay on is so that they can be turned on by the remote controls).
But you may want to question whether you want to expose your children at all to those
wireless remote controls, and certainly not for extended periods.
12) GPS / SatNav with
Be aware that, increasingly, many SatNav devices come with Bluetooth now; this is
of particular concern, again, inside a car as the car body acts a bit like a microwave oven - bouncing
the microwaves all around inside the car and intensifying the danger. Of those that do, some
can disable the Bluetooth microwaves transmission, some may not, you'll have to research your
13) Other WiFi/ Wireless equipment and sources:
Printers, Headphones, TVs, Speakers, Home Alarm Systems,
Bear in mind that modern equipment like TVs, printers etc. now often
have WiFi built in - just be sure before you buy that there's either no WiFi or it's guaranteed that it
can be turned off. And pretty much anything 'wireless' these days is based on the microwave frequency
range; older systems were based on non-pulsing FM, which is fine for almost everyone.
Some wireless equipment, like remote headphones, can still be based on FM signals or even infrared,
but it's getting rarer.
How to tell? Look at the small print: if it says FM/infrared, you're fine; if it
says anything with GHz (Giga Hertz), such as 1.8Ghz or 2.4GHz it will be pulsed microwave based; if it
says Bluetooth, see previous paragraph and if it just doesn't say anything at all, it's almost
certainly microwave based.
More home alarm systems are using WiFi instead of wires to communicate from the
motion sensors to the controller. Some may also detect motion by the sensors sending out microwaves
into the room.
14) 'Smart Meters'
(utility companies install to monitor electricity/ water/ gas usage)
NOT a smart idea! These are the latest pulsed microwave plague to seriously affect 1000s
(millions?) of people.
NOTE - one way out of an enforced smart meter in your own home may be to opt for a
pre-paid mechanical meter instead; please let me know if you have success with
Well advanced in implementation in USA, they are coming to UK/ Europe too (British Gas
leading the way). These are so bad that 43 cities and counties in California have already banned
installation of the dangerous "smart" meters or asked for a moratorium until laws can be
put in place mitigating or stopping them, e.g. Marin, CA Smart Meters 'criminalised'.
They not only transmit WiFi -type pulsed microwaves, but it seems that people are
getting mysteriously sick/disabled even before the WiFi is officially turned on, possibly due, it seems
to strange high frequencies being put onto the mains cables themselves creating 'Dirty
Smart meters are different from other home Pulsed Microwave
wireless devices because they are involuntary, put right on your property and operate in mesh
networks: transmitting intense bursts of pulsed microwave signals back and forth among homes,
collecting and transmitting data about our electricity usage, with the now proven biological and health
effects, such as: DNA breaks, cancer, endocrine disruption, birth defects, heart palpitations, learning
impairment, fatigue and sleep disturbance. As always, children, pregnant women, seniors, people with
immune deficiencies and people with medical implants are most at risk.
If at all possible, decline all offers of smart meter installation in your own home, and
preferably your neighbours too, as their effects seem to go beyond the immediate circuits they
"Smart" meters are horrible. My sister used to be EHS [Electrically
HyperSensitive] to only ELF [Extremely Low Frequencies, such as home mains frequencies], no
problems with cell phones or wifi. After two days living with a smart meter on the house NEXT
DOOR (none on hers because we kept them away so far) she became sensitized and a horrific
experience ensued, she had to stay in her car and lurk parking for hours next to open space and
subsequently is now sensitized to wifi et al.
Stay as far away as you can [from Smart Meters]. Look at the stories, many people with ZERO
history of EHS became sensitized after Smart Meter exposure: See: http://smartmeters.transbay.net/doku.php?id=health
for testimonials and huge, well organized library of Links
culverpratt on Yahoo eSens forum
Also, it appears there is an 'antenna effect' where the already strong microwave signals get
amplified on the home wiring and can create even stronger emissions in a bedroom, for example. This
effect has never been tested for. See this interesting report: DEBUNKING THE UTILITY INDUSTRY MYTH ABOUT
SMART METER SAFETY:THE ANTENNA EFFECT http://stopsmartmetersny.org/debunkingutility.html
I believe they are being offered in the UK already, but are not (yet) mandatory, whereas it
seems they are often mandatory in USA. and other places around the world.
Forewarned is forearmed - it's worth finding out and keeping an eye on your local utility
companies' policies on Smart Meters
Some smart Options:
Simply refuse to have a Smart Meter installed (or INSIST one any there being uninstalled)
In case you are not given notice of installation, put notices on your meters (electric, gas and
water) insisting on NOT installing Smart Meters
Educate your local community and neighbours to take action
If they insist on installing, or refuse to uninstall one that's already there, try asking for a
Pay-As-You-Go / pre-payment type.
If you are already affected and can find a doctor who will acknowledge and support your
sensitivity they could write a letter for you, e.g. 'As the physician of _______ , I am
writing to you regarding the use of digital meters in her home.She has electrical hypersensitivity and the digital meters are affecting her health.It is medically necessary for the digital meters to be replaced with
analog meters. If you have any questions regarding this issue, please feel free to
Some people have put locked cages around their old analogue meter so it can't be changed.
Finally, some people have taken direct action and replaced their Smart Meter with an old analog
meter - you have to find a willing electrician. Nobody's been arrested or cut off -- so far,
but obviously it would be at your own risk!
Note that there have been MANY complaints of utility
bills suddenly rising, sometimes dramatically, after Smart Meter installation - there's no way to verify
the meter; at least the old analogue ones are a tried, tested and reliable choice!
And new, very good smart-meter-danger websites are popping up around the world
all the time. Whereas WiFi and DECT etc. transmit in milliwatts. Smart Meters can transmit in 1 - 3 watts
in order to reach up to 5km away. They 'say' that the meters only transmit twice a day - it's a LIE! People
with Smart Meters are measuring pretty much constant transmissions, and it's making many more people very
sick, very quick!
Smart Meters are SO bad they may well be the straw (or log!) that breaks the
camel's back on microwave dangers awareness, and so end up being a good thing! In the meantime -
avoid them at all costs.
Footnote: There appear to be many
types of smart meter technology, and some may be far less dangerous than others. Even so, some people who
have opted for 'non-wireless' versions of smart meter have still experienced bad symptoms, and no one is
sure why - caution is advised!
15) Solar Panel System
Here's an irony for you: the newer lovely, eco-friendly solar panel installations use
WiFi-type (probably Bluetooth) transmissions to talk to their controller boxes.
I'm checking out more on this one, For now, insist on a WiFi free (wired) version! Or
opt out of the separate controller box, and turn the Bluetooth function off (take readings directly off
the main inverter box).
16) Just coming in: 'Smart' Home Appliances with WiFi ?!?!?!
Can you believe it? Now our home appliances have started to be made with in-built WiFi
transmissions to talk to the 'smart meters' and supposed help manage your utility usage (if you're
still alive, that is, with half a dozen extra WiFi transmitters in your home). Even our light bulbs are planned to be WiFi 'smart', each with their own internet
This is one to be aware of - for now, just ask and make sure your new appliances are NOT
WiFi enabled (or definitely can be turned off, though early signs not good on this
Now, home Pulsed
Microwave sources that are not constantly pulsing & easy to limit use of:
Other pulsing microwaves sources at home (not
1) Mobile Phones
Yes, obviously, your mobile phone is emitting microwaves!
It transmits strong pulsed microwave radiation when you are using it, and next to your
head they are dangerously high, causing anything from warm ear/ headaches/ fatigue to cancerous tumours
Best advice is, surely, to only use it in emergencies (or very short calls of a few
seconds). Also, when you are a long way from a phone mast the phone ups the output considerably to reach
the tower; better to make calls nearer towers if you have a choice.
Sending and receiving texts only requires a short microwave burst, so some who can't
cope with mobile calls find they are able to stay in touch via texts.
When it's on, but not on a call, it sends a short bursts every few minutes to let the
cell tower know it's still there - best not sleep near it, or have it too close to your heart or
reproductive organs (there's much speculation linking hugely decreased sperm counts with
I used to be able manage longer periods on a mobile, but now, even a few seconds can
give me an earache/ headache for hours.
I find using a handsfree headset (wired) works well for me - I feel no discomfort,
though I still keep calls short.Some report that even headsets becomes a problem
for them over time and use one with an air tube for the sound instead (when they really have
Or, most phones these days allow you to use it as a speaker phone, so you can keep it
well away from you.
Using a mobile in a car is particularly bad as the car acts like a microwave oven
bouncing microwaves all around inside (and requiring the mobile to transmit at much high power to
compensate). Better to stop and get out of the car for the call (and ask passengers to do the
Microwave ovens are very strong sources of pulsing microwaves waves, and actually
do emit a lot when on and new, let alone when they get older and start leaking. My meter goes beserk
all over the house when one is turned on - salutary experience! People have had cataracts from being
near them when they are on.)
Anyway, I gave up the whole microwaving of food idea after I read the
suppressed Swiss report on Microwave cooking dangers. It does horrible things to vitamins,
enzymes, DNA - basically busting molecules apart, as well as shaking water molecules, and radically
changing your blood chemistry (Russia banned them in the 1970s because of this). http://www.aaimedicine.com/jaaim/apr06/hazards.php
These new 'environmentally friendly' light bulbs can be a real health hazard. Not only
are they highly toxic when broken (mercury vapour) but they also emit high levels of radiation
too. Even though not strictly microwave radiation, many people are getting many of the same
symptoms, particularly headaches and sleeping problems, as well as skin burns and rashes from
the strong ultraviolet light they emit.
If you are using these bulbs, I strongly recommend watching this video series to get a sense of how seriously you can
Go back to the old incandescents (stock up as they are
being outlawed soon) or most LED based bulbs seem to be fine (still expensive, but they do last
a VERY long time!)
4) 2.4 GHz Radio Control
Radio control devices now predominately operate in the 2.4Ghz range - which is the same
frequency as microwave ovens - rather than the old analogue FM range. I don't know much about this
technology yet, or how strong it is, but I'm getting an older FM transmitter off ebay for my model
Now, let's look at sources OUTSIDE
your home, but irradiating your space anyway
External Sources of non-stop pulsing microwaves
(out of our direct control):
1) Mobile Phone Masts
People all over the world are getting seriously ill near mobile phone masts (house
prices are even dropping near them).
In city centres it's coming from all directions and almost
impossible to avoid. I would never live within 1/2 a mile to a mile of a mast,
They are constantly bombarding you, often from several different operators and
directions (thankfully we live in a small coastal town in a valley which actually has NO mobile
reception at all!!).
These days mobile, WiMax, police Tetra and local WiFi repeater masts and even
Smart Meter masts can also be not so obvious or hidden in:
> pub and shop signs
> street lamps
> disguised as a pole
> even made to look like
People spend £1000s on shielding solutions, but if you're close to a mast or several
masts it really may be much better to move away, many people do (drastic, but what's your
How many masts nearby? A good tool in
the UK to help you find out how many mobile or police Tetra masts there are in your area or
where you are planning to visit or stay is the official: http://www.sitefinder.ofcom.org.uk/search ,
though they don't have to list the some of the smaller masts which cover small areas and may be hidden
in signs and lamp posts etc. (and which I don't think need planning permission.) More good reasons to get
your own electrosmog meter to measure it all.
Incredibly, people are now being offered up to £7,000 to HIDE a mobile phone mast in or on their
own homes (such as inside a drain pipe) so that they CANNOT be seen from outside (thus avoiding planning
requirements), see full story in Daily Telegraph: Homeowners paid to hide phone masts The moral is that appearances are deceiving
and that getting a proper microwave meter/ Electrosmog Detector is essential if you want to protect
yourself and family from Pulsed Microwaves (see below).
WiMax is wide area wireless broadband services - That is broadband coming through
the air rather than your phone line or fibre optics.
WiMax is becoming increasingly common in cities and towns, and many people are
already complaining of sickness and symptoms (all officially ignored since we all 'know it's a
safe technology', right?!)
Some communities are objecting already....
Glastonbury (UK) was one of the first to
have WiMax imposed - I mean installed - in the UK. Residents claim they are suffering panic attacks,
skin rashes, headaches and dizziness since the streets there became one of Britain's first wireless
Some locals there say they have been so badly affected by symptoms - that also
include attacks of nausea, sudden sweating or extreme fatigue - they can no longer walk in the town.
Others have even chosen to move away.
Note: it now appears that Somerset County Council have decided to
withdraw from the three year Glastonbury Wi-Fi pilot project after just 14 months, stating
"economic reasons" rather than in response to the health concerns (well, they aren't going
to admit it's harmful!)
3) Neighbours' DECT and WiFi
This was a big one for us, since it came to the point where we could hardly stay in our
own house for more than a hour with their DECT phone base station powered on, but luckily our neighbour
was helpful enough to change their DECT phone for a low radiation one we bought them (and turn off their
BT Home Hub 2.0, replacing it with a normal wireless router). They have also now kindly agreed to turn
the WiFi off at night and when they are out, which has made a big difference to our well-being! (we're
not so badly affected by the WiFi next door, though others can be).
This especially applies to neighbours who are attached to your house, e.g
semi-detached, terraced, apartments, etc. Outside walls and space between houses seem to reduce the
bulk of problem, at least from neighbours' signals (though we did live in a wood chalet once, 80m away
from our landlord who had his DECT base station in his glass conservatory with a direct line of
empty space between us, and we got quite strong signals inside the chalet)(DECT is designed to go 300m
in open space!)
If you are nice to them, your neighbours may well be amenable to the idea that
their equipment is hurting you, especially if you can already relate some symptoms. If you have, or can
borrow, an Electrosmog Detector you will be able to demonstrate to them the sound THEIR microwave pulses
are making: this is VERY powerful as most people instinctively feel a STRONG negative reaction to the
those sounds; in fact, most people just CANNOT relate to the idea at all until they hear it (or are
feeling ill from it)!
How to explain the problem to a neighbour
I wish there was an easy answer! Most reasonable people find the idea that their
microwave emissions could be harming you perplexing. If you understand this, get as well informed on it
all as possible, are really nice, you may be surprised at how flexible they will be, even if they don't
understand or agree with you. I have found that simply saying that, 'Weird as it seems, I'm allergic
to pulsed microwaves' works best for me; people seem to have a better appreciation of
'alergic' then 'sensitive'! Getting the home cordless DECT phone to a safe Siemens Gigaset is the
easiest, because you buy them what is essentially a nice phone set and they don't
So, if they are responsive, here are some options to
1) Ask them to at least turn it all off at night - DECT and Wifi base/router, mainly -
but then you are very reliant on them remembering. You may invite them to see if THEY feel any better,
such as sleeping better. Also, if they can move it all as far away from your side of their house, that
2) Offer to change their Digital Cordless (DECT) phone with a safe Siemens Gigaset
DECT phone with ECO Mode Plus. These ONLY Transmit when on a call and for about 30 seconds
after. I got a refurbished set with three handsets for £40 off ebay (£149 rrp) (make sure it states
something like: "Furthermore, radiation-free ECO Mode Plus slashes the transmitting power by up to 100%
when the handset is in standby " - it's the word Plus that must be there). This was
GREAT investment, not matter what it costs, for the relief we got. They will notice hardly any
difference with their normal DECT phone, except, an occasional extra second to get a dial tone (if they
don't speed dial or pre-dial before they connect).
Siemens Gigaset DECT phones with ECO Mode Plus will turn OFF the base station
transmissions when not on a call. But, you must makes sure that the mode is selected (read the manual,
it's buried in the menus) and then make sure that it STAYS selected (e.g neighbour's kids don't fiddle)!
And the only way to do that (without going around to check all the time) is to turn on your Electrosmog
Detector every day or week etc, as you should be able to hear it buzzing if your houses are connected
and DECT is on - another good reason to buy your own electrosmog detector). More on these safer
Siemens phones here
3) Most importantly, if they are a BT Broadband
customer, they will almost certainly have a BT Home
Hub - again, the older ones represent a particular danger, with their built-in powerful
DECT base station that cannot be turned off and is irradiating all and sundry 24/7, even when it's not
supplied with a BT DECT Handset to use it and its 'Telephony' function is turned off! Well, thankfully,
there is something you can easily do to fix this older DECT problem in HH 1.0, 1.5 & 2.0 from
close neighbours: upgrade them to a BT Home Hub 3.0 (but preferably not 4.0 or 5.0) (or any
other router) - it's a much better router, so they shouldn't object. More details here. Just note that it will still emit WiFi unless it's a Home Hub 3.0 AND They
opt themselves out of BT WiFi service AND disable the WiFi in tech hub - see the whole BT Home Hubs
section - it's a complex issue!
4) As a WiFi solution, offer to buy them a set of Homeplug adaptors; again the link
is here for a set of three 85Mbps ones for £44.99
delivered. Note that the main inconvenience is that a network cable
is required to connect to the nearest mains plug, but as laptops and computers are almost always plugged
in at home anyway, it's not much extra bother to have the extra adaptor and cable running alongside the
mains lead. Of course, it does mean a restriction in not being able to move a laptop/ netbook around on
battery power so easily, but the benefits do far outweigh that.
Apartments and Flats
If you're living in an apartment or flat with several neighbours in all directions
(sides, above, below and diagonals), you are almost certainly being bombarded with high radiation from
multiple sources/ You will have a problem to significantly reduce exposure from all those sources.
You could talk to all your adjoining neighbours, but the chances of them all co-operating is fairly
And finding good and effective microwave shielding solutions can be both challenging and
expensive. See notes below.
5) Cavity Wall Insulation problem - special note on 'Microwave
We live in a brand new, extremely well insulated lovely semi-detached house.
But there's a problem:
it's got these insulating glass fibre pads in the cavity walls and roof and
they are all backed with thick aluminium foil.
Now, this is VERY good for keeping the microwaves OUT of the house - they reflect
microwaves back very well - BUT any microwaves that either get in through the windows or come from
next door (there's no insulation in the semi-detached party wall) just bounce around and around
until they can find an escape through a window OR get absorbed by anything with water in it - i.e.
that's mainly us!
This may be one reason why we became so sensitive to our neighbour's DECT phone - we're living
in a microwave oven!!
So, be extra careful with creating microwaves inside these modern, aluminium foil-lined
houses; and if you live in one, and have other sources of microwaves nearby (masts/ DECT phones etc),
you may want to invest in net-curtain type shielding materials to hang over the windows.
6) What about at work?
Sadly, there's more and more exposure in our work and business environment, both from
within the workplace (WiFi, DECT etc.) as well as often being in the near vicinity of mobile masts,
Small businesses can often be the worst, since you're more likely to be right next to
the WiFi or DECT cordless phone base stations all day. Even supermarket checkouts, in particular, tend
to be very high in DECT transmissions; we often get rapidly disoriented in some supermarkets/shops: a
nearby Tesco Extra being particularly bad with strong DECT-type transmissions throughout, yet
another nearby Tesco is fine!
Obviously, negotiating with your employer/ colleagues to reduce your working
environment microwave exposure is ideal; but the sad fact is that most will be skeptical and
resistant. Then, other than shielding your own work area if possible (with protection materials), you
will have to either put up with it, or even change job.
But, at least get good rest at night. My own experience is that by
creating a microwave free - or almost free - space at night means my body can sleep well and recuperate for
the next day's bombardment! When I do workshops etc. at clients' premises in cities, I get right out of
town at night to a quiet countryside campsite that's not near a mobile mast or DECT base. Even though
I may be dizzy and disoriented by the end of a working day in town, it means that I'm then fit and clear by
the next morning for another day (if I'd stayed in town or hotel I'd be even worse next day).
I actually bought an old camping car just for this reason! Even hotels and bed and breakfasts out of
town are usually a problem, since they almost all have DECT phones and WiFi; research in advanced and
discussions/negotiations are essential (such as bringing a corded phone or Siemens Gigaset with you for
them to temporarily replace their DECT phone, and asking for WiFi to be turned off, or off at
How strong are the
microwaves where I live (or work)?
- Electrosmog Detector (with audio output)
It all seems a bit of mystery and difficult to take seriously when you can't see or sense
these microwaves. I have found that my Electrosmog Detector MW1 Meter (which has a loud audio output of
the pulsings) to be VERY effective at making the point to others and for checking my own equipment and
area is safe.
I got the MW1 for about £60 (a fantastic investment). It's discontinued now BUT is hopefully beingreplaced by a much more sensitive one at only around
£20-£30. Info on the old MW1, and any news of the new one's arrival,
can be found here. MW1s are still occasionally available
on ebay - put in a search for Electrosmog Detector and save it (Sign up for my updates below and I'll let
you know as soon as they are available!)
I go everywhere with my MW1: checking shops, restaurants, etc, and particularly
anywhere I'll be sleeping, like hotels. It's also extremely good at attracting people's attention
the problem. The sounds are almost universally horrible to listen to, and so people really take notice when
they hear them. It's very sensitive, but not quite enough for many people (including me), hence the
There are meters at a lower price, but none have the audio output as well, which I consider
The Acousticom 2 is an easy to use, extremely sensitive and accurate
microwave RF measurement instrument which is ideal for carrying around. It is sensitive enough, goes right
up to 8Ghz (WiFi 'n' and some US DECT phones operate in 5Ghz range, plus others too) and again most
importantly, it gives the audio output too, so you can hear and let others hear the sounds of the pulses
(again, very disturbing, but very convincing!) Also, the sounds help identify the source; you soon start to
recognise the signature sounds of WiFi, DECT, mobile masts, etc. Unlike the MW1 it will give you a read out
of the actual strength of the signals picked up via LED lights.
It uses the same advanced microwave detector as the Acoustimeter
See their 2 minute video demo and explain the main features of the
Acousticom 2 HERE.
Finally, if your budget will
allow, there's emfields.org'sAcoustimeter.
Same as The Acousticom 2 above, but with an LCD display of the actual
signal strength, rather than just LEDs giving approximate ranges, plus average levels as well as peak
levels. Although they do cost about £300, (£35 to hire for a week), they are maybe the best at this sort of
price. However, they are quite bulky, and I like the smaller (and cheaper) Acousticom 2
Note: for detailed guidance of different levels permitted by governments see here. But, for example, UK and USA allow up to 60V/m (way off this meter's
scale!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Whereas Switzerland, Lichtenstein, Luxembourg, Russia, China and Italy only allow
6V/m - still at the TOP of this meter's range. A DECT phone and WiFi base station and WiFi laptop will
transmit in the order of 6V/m (lower as you get further from them). Considering that a 0.01V/m signal from
next door's DECT base station was giving me heart palpitations at night - that's 6,000 times lower than the
'official' 'safety' limit here in UK (OR 10,000,000 times lower when measured on the mw/m2 scale - arghhh )
- it brings the whole out-dated, outmoded, ill-conceived safety limits based on 'thermal heating effects
only' severely into question!
Making a start
There's so much more to all this, but if all you do is at
least turn off your OWN sources, especially DECT digital cordless phone base station
and the WiFi on your router, you'll probably solve 80% of any problems; if you're feeling tired/
groggy, not sleeping well, etc. it could just make all the difference! At the very least turn them off at
night and when not being used.
Try it for all off for week and see how you feel!
Many people I meet can trace the beginnings of their symptoms to when they (or neighbour)
installed WiFi, put in a new DECT phone, a local mobile mast went up etc.
At least for the
Oh, and let's protect our children too - why take the risk? - they've no idea
what their cell phones and your DECT/ WiFi are doing. Many schools are dismantling their WiFi because their
kids can't concentrate and behaviour gets worse (as well as some teachers getting sick too). Some countries
are already banning WiFi in schools/libraries etc.)http://tinyurl.com/mobiles-banned-in-schools(register for free to read it all)

In this, the first few years of an ever-thickening electrosmog, if some

Many scientists are raising serious concerns to counter the almost universally
communications-industry-funded so-called research on pulsed microwave safety.
Other leading scientists meet huge obstacles, such as funding withdrawal, when they publish
findings that contradict the establishment view and so threaten the industry. Remember how doctors used to
promote smoking as good for your health? It took decades to admit the problem - do we have that much time
in the meantime, doesn't it make sense to take whatever steps you can
to at least minimise exposure (pretty much impossible to
eliminate it completely these days)?
from sources outside the home
(and smart meters if imposed on you)
Once you have got rid of your own Pulsing Microwave sources, and you've done what you can to
reduce neighbours microwaves, it may be time to check out how to protect yourselves from
neighbours and the vicinity (mobile masts/ WiMax) with protection materials (if not moving
A quick and easy way to protect against lower strength external microwave
sources is with cheap Mylar energy-saving aluminium foil emergency 'space
blankets'.A good article about covering large areas to protect
yourself from outside sources can be found here at educate-yourself.org.
They can be bought very cheaply, cover large areas, are very light and, unlike
aluminium foil, very strong.
I have made our own house bearable to live in
with our semi-detached neighbour's wifi on by lining the entire party wall with space blankets (taped to wall
with masking tape and overlapping), and this has reduced the strength of their signal (which had begun to
seriously disturb us and our sleep) to bareable levels; but we really need to live in a detached house now! So
for us, these have been a 'life-saver'; however, we knew which direction the microwave pulse were coming from
and so we just sealed up the party wall between our homes with the space blankets. If you have
sources from all/many directions and you try to seal off your entire house or room, you can create more
problems as the microwaves get trapped inside and keep bouncing around! So caution is needed when trying to
create a 'faraday cage' to block off all incoming microwaves.
Note that some people have said that mylar space blanket brands seem to vary a lot in
their efectiveness. All I know is that the first ones we tried seemed to be really good! They are
Running Imp ones, available here f0r between £0.69 and £0.99 each depending on quantity. They are 140cm x
210cm - that's almost 3 square metres!
Space blankets come as sleeping bags too, and are good for traveling. They may work
better when grounded (though always go by how you feel) and can be connected together with crocodile clip
leads - search ebay for 'crocodile clips' (£2.50 for 10 leads!) and for 'emergency blanket' (less than
40p - £1 each!) and even survival tents. Only if you know what you're doing you can make your own
mains grounding cord from an old appliance lead and plug (only leave the Ground wire connected -
disconnect the Live and Neutral connections, of course - best get a qualified electrician to do it!) Note
that they reduce not eliminate microwaves if, so are not going to eliminate the problem entirely,
especially when near strong sources, such as Smart Meters, neighbours' WiFi hubs, DECT cordless phone
base stations, as well as mobile phone masts. It's really best to have your own electrosmog meter
to test how well your protection is working, see meters above.
We have found space blankets to be far more effective than aluminium foil
(which, for some reason has sometimes made us feel worse). Try to place them between you and the
source (as far as you can tell where it's coming from). I originally put several sheets both around the
side of my bed towards the source and under it as the source was one floor down in my neighbour's side of
our semi-detached house. That instantly stopped my night time heart arrhythmias. You can go further
and use wallpaper paste to glue it to the party wall(s) or walls towards masts etc. and then wallpaper over
that (that's what my 91 year dad did to protect against his neighbour's BT Home Hub, and HIS heart
arrhythmias stopped too).
For example, you can buy or make a protective fabric tent (mosquito net style) to protect
you at night or on travels, then at least getting some protection and recovery time while sleeping
which may significantly help. One viable option is a mosquito tent type of sleeping canopy or a
BlocBag - a kind of sleeping bag made with microwave-proof materials (UK link)(USA link). Also fabric is very good to cover windows facing the source, e.g nearby mast,
or to make your own tent. On a technical point, it's worth getting fabrics that will protect right up to
8Ghz (most only go to 3GHz) as new technologies are using frequencies up to 8GHz.
It is really good (as good as I could find, at 70db reduction in microwave
intensity) at almost completely eliminating microwaves - this one goes right up to 10Ghz, whereas
many only go up to 3Ghz, which is enough for DECT phones and some WiFi, but not enough for new
technologies emerging in the 5-8GHz range (eg leatest WiFi). It is washable, breathable and flexible. I have
made a large sleeping bag from it to help me sleep well on my travels. You could also make clothes from it
You can also buy pre-made Aaronia shield canopies (only 50db not 70db protection
though - still good, and much better than many/most others, but 100 times less effective than my 70db
Ultra fabric (10db higher = 10x reduction)). They are certainly expensive, but maybe worth the
investment if unable to sleep well; Google Aaronia shield canopy
"I have a young friend who developed Lupus
after moving into a home which has two smart meters and nearby cell towers. She began waking up
at 3:00 AM each night with her heart racing and feeling as if she had just had a nightmare (I've
heard that one from several people with smart meters), and was beginning to develop panic
attacks. She was debilitated with pain for days and had no energy even when she wasn't having a
She got an Aaronia shield canopy and the floor mat made from
X-Dream. We did some measurements inside the
canopy and it's one of the few times that I've seen my high frequency analyzer measure 0.00
uW/m2. She's been sleeping in the canopy for eight months, has gone off her Lupus meds and not
had a flareup,nightmarish 3:00 wakeups, or panic-like attacks since.
The draw back is that these canopies are very expensive. You may be
able to do without the floor mat if your bed is on a cement slab foundation vs crawl space or upper floor,
but you would need to consult with a knowledgeable person about this.
If you're handy you might consider making one yourself for less money.
LessEMF.com has shielding materials which sound as if they have the same properties as the Aaronia canopy
material, but one would need to talk with them about their shielding fabrics. They have always been
friendly and helpful with my questions.
Impossible as it might seem, your best
choice may still be to move to somewhere better, even if it means a significant change to your
lifestyle - after all what price is our health and well-being??"
Pendants and other devices claiming protection
You can spend an awful lot on all manner of devices to wear, put on your mobile phone, place in
your home or attach to your electricity supply, etc. I am generally very sceptical about them; although it's
clear that some people do find some long-term relief from some of them that goes beyond placebo effect.
A long time ago I had one on my mobile phone that absolutely did stop my ear hurting on a call -
I've no idea how or why it worked so well, but the effect only lasted about three weeks.
If you can actually feel yourself being affected, best is to only get ones that offer a
'no-quibble' guarantee for a reasonable period so you can send it back if it's no good for you.
STOP PRESS - worth a look? Quote from firstname.lastname@example.org forum: "The dooozz.nl natural bionite products have almost completely counteracted
my local mast and wifi effects I feel. Slept like a rock from day one and my energy returned soon after.
Cant recommend them enough." These DO look good enough to check out... I will get some and let
you know, or do let me know if you have any experiences with them
Other electrical (EMF)
Note that some people are also sensitive to other sources of EMF (Electro Magnetic
Frequencies) from their mains supply, appliances, TV, computers, etc. The most obvious precaution
is to not have a mains powered alarm clock next to your head at night.
I, myself, got great relief from sore legs by moving my PC box 1 metre away with
extension cables for screen, keyboard and mouse (after a friend had the same experience).
Some people even turn their mains off at night at the breaker box. Some find metal
springs in mattresses and metal bed frames act as aerials and amplifiers to these signals. Also, some
are allergic to the new low energy compact fluorescent light bulbs because of their high frequencies and
Bad frequencies can be carried over the mains cables, even from neighbours' TVs, say
(particularly plasma ones, LCDs seem better) and into and on and around your home!
Still, the microwave sources are usually by far the most important ones to sort out
Stay smiling - it's good to be cautious, but try not to let it all get you down!
