EMF’s Influence on Human Health and Life

The presence of devices generating artificial electromagnetic field in our everyday life negatively influences our body’s internal biological balance (homeostasis). This influence of artificial electric field upon electrical impulses in the human body that occur naturally and are connected with life functions. These impulses allow communication between cells, which is the basis for the transmission of nerve signals and biochemical reactions. A significant role of EMF’s effect on the molecular level is also played by the large amount of water and minerals that make the human body a perfect electric conductor. The effect of external electromagnetic field upon man is mainly dependent upon frequency and intensity. EMF values of everyday exposure on humans requires their bodies to initiate adequate compensation mechanisms in order to minimize the environmental stress. However, long term exposure to even a minimal level of EMF entails negative health consequences resulting from biological reactions that slowly and noticeably weaken the body.

The current knowledge about the effects of electromagnetic field upon the human health is substantial and is based upon much scientific and medical research which has been conducted for decades all around the world. Extended exposure to electromagnetic smog interrupts the basic functions of the brain, circulatory system, immune system and it is connected with such symptoms as sleep disorder, headaches, irregular heart rate, anxiousness, chronic fatigue or bad mood.

Electrical wiring in apartment buildings in very extensive and is a complex source of EMF. As well as permanent in the form of wiring in walls and floors and in the direct vicinity of the apartment’s surroundings the apartment’s interior environment can be characterized by an ever changing mobile installation caused by all the connected electric devices. Long term exposure to these electromagnetic fields can have a negative influence on residents’ health.

It is especially important in relation to the bedroom, where we spend on average a third of our lives. During sleep the basic functions of the body are less active as it focuses on rest and regeneration. Healthy sleep plays an important role in the DNA repair process in cells, ensuring optimal conditions for the body’s regeneration. Activation of the natural healing resources within the body allows us to enjoy better health and mood. However, typical electric wires in walls, ceiling and floor of the bedroom, not to mention all devices like lamps, alarm clocks and extension cables create EMF that is located close to the human body for many hours. Electromagnetic field shielding in the bedroom is important, because it can ensure a better repair process of DNA at night, when endogenous and exogenous DNA damage is at a minimal level. It is the environment that we live in that influences our health and quality of life most.

People exposed to artificial electromagnetic radiation are observed to have symptoms such as:

  • sleep disorder
  • headaches and migraines
  • chronic fatigue and exhaustion
  • over sensitiveness and internal unrest
  • memory processing disorder
  • general weakness and susceptibility to infections
  • hormonal disorders

We are aware of the possible health consequences regarding exposure to EMF based upon scientific and medical research. It gives us a basis to undertake a strategy that will prevent the identified sources of electrosmog. The necessity for finding integrated solutions that take into account the health aspects is supported by the World Health Organization (WHO) and other international institutions.

So What is ADR-Technology and how it works What is ADR-Technology?

Effects of the electromagnetic smog (EMF) on the living organism

DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid) importance lies in long-term information storage related to the instruction of development and functioning all known living organisms. DNA is continuously damaged by endogenous and exogenous factors and then repaired by DNA repair enzymes. The damage to DNA can be accumulated and lead to cell death or cancer when the repair is mistaken or an imbalance between the damage and repair appears.

The damage to DNA consists in strand breaks and cross linking. Endogenous agents as free radicals created by mitochondrial respiration and metabolism are responsible for strand breaks in DNA. The damage can be done also by UV, ionizing and non-ionizing radiation as well as by chemicals (exogenous factors). Numerous papers on the effect of non-ionizing electromagnetic field on DNA and chromosomal structure have been published and the results are reviewed in the paper by Phillips, Singh and Lai.1

Recently, it has been published that the light-dark cycle, related to planetary rotation with respect to our Sun, may play a role in DNA repairing processes in the cells.2,3,4,5

The cell cycle is linked to the circadian clock at the molecular level so that the protein synthesis and DNA replication are at a higher level during the night. It is suspected that the evolution has resulted in a coordination of the biological clock with the cell cycles in the way to limit the synthesis and repairing processes of DNA to the nighttime.3 During the night there is no UV damage to DNA made by the Sun and the reactive oxygen species are at a minimum due to slower metabolism.
