Low risk, High tech options!

Posted on


Part of a truly holistic lifestyle, is reducing the toxins in our environment.  We all know about pesticides on our foods, chemicals in our cleaning materials and toxins in our toiletries, but what about some of the invisible threats we now live with on a day-to-day basis?

Following on from a talk by Joanna Hill of the Gerson Therapy Support Group, I have put together some information regarding accessing high speed broadband in the home, without the use of wireless waves which have been the subject of controversy since their inception. There have been studies indicating a strong association between wireless networks and increased numbers of people with brain tumours. 

For internet access via the power line :
You need one network adapter kit (Joanne uses a Netgear Powerline HDXB101) which contains two Powerline units, the first of which you connect to your access point or router, and also plug it into the mains.  Thereafter, the mains becomes your network (an Ethernet high speed connection up to 200 mbps): you can then attach up to 16 further units, one per pc etc.  I have had a look around, and the basic unit costs around £150 (available on Amazon, amongst others). 

We also touched on how to protect ourselves from the microwaves emitted by mobile phones.  Before you read on, I have found a few statements (see which should make us at least question whether mobile phones are as safe as they might be.

Did you know for instance that  a mobile phone call lasting just 2 minutes can alter the natural electrical activity of a child's brain for an hour?

Or that when you use a cell phone 70 percent of the energy emitted from the antenna is absorbed into your head?

Japan has banned cell phone use on trains to cut down on 'second hand radiation'.

The mobile telephone headset which reduces exposure to microwaves is called an air tube and the Blue Tube version is recommended by Dr Mercola.  There appear to be quite a few variations on the market, but the RF3 is quite widely available and retails around £28-£35.
“This technology utilizes a state-of-the-art SPL enhanced sound chamber which delivers a crystal clear sound through an air-filled wireless tube (similar to a doctor's stethoscope). By replacing the wire with AirCom Technology, the RF3 Cellular Headset reduces the possibility of radiation from reaching your head.”

It’s good to know that there is a low  risk, high tech option available, should we choose to take it.
