Safety must be proven

There is a growing body of evidence that external electromagnetic fields can be hazardous to our health.

There is a growing body of evidence that external electromagnetic fields can be hazardous to our health — fields from controversial sources such as cell phones, cell phone towers and smart meters, etc.

The problem is that the strength is these fields is often far greater than our bodies were meant to absorb. Overloaded fields have a negative affect on cell membrane potentials and how cells communicate with one another.

If we are to achieve good health, a balance of the body’s electrical fields is essential. The brain communicates with the rest of the body by emitting electrical charges across the cell membranes of nerve cells, usually around 80 millivolts. Any excess usually ends up in the nervous system sending out false signals to the brain, some causing symptoms of ill health.

Each cell conducts its processes across the cell membrane by absorbing nutrients and ejecting waste products. The rate at which these are exchanged tells us how efficiently the cell is working as it depends on the difference in the electrical charge on both sides of the membrane.

The cell is already challenged by toxic substances and there is no need to be reminded of the many new toxic chemicals introduced into our world every day.

I would suggest that we start using our brains and start taking these matters seriously by insisting on the precautionary principal which would require those who expect to make money from the introduction of these toxic chemicals and gadgets to prove firstly that they are safe.
