Non-Ionizing Radiation, Brain Cancer and What You Need To Know

Introduction: The Connection Between Non-Ionizing Radiation and Brain Cancer

Non-ionizing radiation is a form of electromagnetic radiation and it is a type of electromagnetic field. The electromagnetic spectrum includes different wavelengths and types of energy. Non-ionizing radiation has the smallest wavelength and can be found in the range of 100 Hz to 300 GHz.

Brain cancer is a type of cancer that forms in the brain, surrounding tissues, or in the spinal cord that usually occurs as a result of chronic inflammation or genetic mutations. It can come from exposure to drugs, infections, carcinogens, ionising radiation such as X-rays and microwave radiation such as wifi and bluetooth.

The Importance of Reducing Exposure to Non-Ionizing Radiation

The inverse-square law is a mathematical rule that applies to the intensity of radiation. Inverse means that as you move away from the source of radiation, its intensity decreases by the square of the distance from the source.

In other words, if you double your distance from a wifi router, your exposure will be one-quarter as much as it was when you were closer.

For this reason it’s important to maximize your distance from wi-fi routers or to use a wired ethernet connection whenever possible.

How To Reduce Exposure To Non-Ionizing Radiation At Home or The Workplace

This section is all about reducing exposure to wireless radiation both at home or the workplace.

The FCC website suggests that you can reduce your exposure by using your wireless devices only when the cellular signal is strong, keeping your phone away from your body, limiting cell phone use when children are in the house, and turning off devices when not in use. Their website also provides links to more information on how to reduce exposure to wireless radiation.

We have found some useful tips for reducing exposure to non-ionizing radiation at home or the workplace below:

  • hard-wire your digital devices with an ethernet network cable.

  • tablets and cell phones can also be connected to a physical ethernet cable using an adapter.

  • avoid the use of wireless security cameras such as the Ring Doorbell or Arlo security cameras.

  • avoid the use of wireless speakers such as Sonos Speaker Systems.

  • avoid the use of wireless keyboards and mice.

  • If an appliance is marketed as a “smart” device, then it is likely to have a wireless transmitting component.

With Covid-19 lockdowns in place and people working from home, they may be unknowingly exposing themselves to strong electromagnetic radiation or electromagnetic fields. Make-shift offices might be situated next to their wifi router, which could cause chronic long term exposure to electromagnetic radiation. With many forced to do Zoom meetings, they may also be using bluetooth wireless headphones or headsets to conduct their meetings. This unnecessary exposure to bluetooth microwave radiation at 2.45GHz frequency is the same frequency as a microwave oven.

As people become more aware of the health risks they are exposing themselves to, they are taking steps to reduce them. Health effects such as chronic fatigue, sleep disturbances, anxiety, tinnitus, chest pains, and memory loss. The goal should be to eliminate their wireless exposure, but instead to reduce the amount they are exposed to.

Conclusion & Summary Of Key Points Mentioned – How To Reduce Exposure To Non-Ionizing Radiation At Home or The Workplace

This article has outlined many ways to reduce exposure to non-ionizing radiation, so that you can reduce the risk of developing cancer or experiencing other adverse health effects. .

These include:

– Decreasing time spent using a wireless device

– Turn off wireless transmitting devices such as wifi routers, and hard-wire

– Keeping devices away from your head and body, but maintain as much distance away from the source.
