I care deeply about the food we eat, the chemicals we expose ourselves to and the overall way we take care of ourselves. I am not naive when it comes to how different our world is then it was 100 years ago. Things have changed rapidly and I believe that with each change, we have a responsibility as human beings to educate ourselves and have an awareness of our way of life, including what we eat and what we expose ourselves to.
Because this is a passion of mine I was intrigued when Defendershield asked me to review their products. Mostly because I had heard the rumblings of the effects our cell-phones and wi-fi have on us, but had not had a chance to explore the topic any further.
Now this topic is far and wide, but I think the bottom line is this: EMF is something that we need to be aware of and we need to take the proper precautions to protect ourselves from.
What is EMF and Why is it harmful?
EMF is short for Electromagnetic Frequencies. Over the past two decades, there has been an explosion of compact, portable electronic devices. We are surrounded by our devices. Laptops sit on our laps and cell phones are in our pocket against our body or directly against our head when held to our ear. This means we are in direct contact with increased levels of Electromagnetic Radiation in the form of Extremely Low Frequency and Radio Frequency radiation as well as heat radiation. Studies have shown that our exposure to heat and radiation can cause numerous health issues. For all the details click here.
“I do think that the amount of radiation exposure we get these days is exponentially higher than we did 15, 20 years ago. So anything you can do to limit your exposure to radiation is a good idea. But I don’t think you need to give up any of these products. I try not to put the laptop directly on my lap, I try not to put the cellphone directly to my ear.” Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN
How can you protect yourself and your family?
Okay I am going to be totally honest here. I had NO idea that a company and products like this existed. Like I mentioned above, I had only heard the rumblings of the effects of EMF, but hadn't really researched the topic. What an awesome surprise it was for me to receive an email from DefenderShield asking me to give an honest review of their products! But here's the thing. DefenderShield didn't want to just promote their products to sell more, they really have a passion to educate our culture on the harmful effects of EMF. I love that.
