Can excessive exposure to Electromagnetic Fields (from your mobile, Bluetooth devices, wifi networks etc) cause anxiety, depression, sleep disturbances, tiredness, attention dysfunction, irritability and other health-related issues?
Martin Pall, PhD’s research suggests that the cells most damaged by exposure to EMF radiation are concentrated in the nervous system and how these cells communicate with each other.
Although there may be a lot of truth around engagement and social skills development amongst teens and young adults, a question we need to ask is ‘how much of the mental health issues that seem so prevalent amongst the young today are due to biological changes caused by EMF exposure and how much is due to the physical isolation and social pressures that social media upholds’?
- Don’t carry your mobile on your body – how many of us put our phones into our back trouser or front jacket pockets for ease of access?
- Turn off your wifi at night when you don’t need it – using a timer to turn your wifi off and on at night may encourage less use of electronic equipment after a specific point at night.
- Potentially eating a more Mediterranean style diet may help to counteract some of the damage caused.
