Killing Our Civilization

EMFs, the Overlooked Toxin

I have to admit, I love convenience. Who doesn’t? As I look back over the years, I have watched society change from no cell phones and children playing in the street, to the majority of humans constantly using their phones.
Not long ago, I was on an airplane and went to the restroom in the back of the plane. When I walked back to my seat, it was absolutely amazing to witness the aircraft cabin all lit up with cell phones. I wonder what people did before phones were around! I remember what I did—played! I played with others, had conversations, dreamed and created with my imagination—all the good things one should do in order to live a healthy lifestyle. I am not saying we shouldn’t be involved with technology—it is a useful part of society. I believe just as the world changes, we too must change and adapt ourselves. As the world presses in on us, we can learn to maintain our bodies in optimal shape to live a long, healthy life.
 
EMFs
Electromagnetic frequencies are otherwise known as EMFs. According to the website emfs.info, “Electric fields are produced by voltage and magnetic fields by current. They come from wires, not the pylons that hold them up.” This is quite the controversial topic and often overlooked on a personal level until a crisis hits. 
 
International Agency for Research on Cancer
I am sure many of you may not be surprised that according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IRIC), EMFs are categorized as a Class 2B carcinogen. Class 2B is the category that a substance may possibly be harmful to humans. The fact that it is on the list is a growing concern, considering all the other things on the list to which we are also exposed.
 
Studies
With the growing number of illnesses rising in the U.S., this is the time to become like a hawk, constantly surveying what we are ingesting as well as that to which we are being exposed. In 2007, the BioInitiative Working Group cited a report where more than 2,000 studies pointed to the devastating effects of EMFs on the body.(1) This is alarming news. It revealed in a nutshell that exposure, even low exposure (hint: cell phones), can cause cancer, Alzheimer’s, dementia, affect one’s immunity and a host of other health issues.
A study undertaken in Sweden found that if you start using a cell phone as a teen, you have a five times greater risk of developing brain cancer as opposed to starting to use one as an adult.(2) Now, this next news is unbelievable. Just as startling as the above study results, “Every single study of brain tumors that looks at 10 or more years of [cell phone] use shows an increased risk of brain cancer.”
We, as a society, have forgotten who we are and how our bodies operate. We need to take care of ourselves so we can live life to the fullest. Our bodies are all electric—cells communicating with each other and working hard for our well-being. Our cells respond to a host of harmful things, including bacteria, viruses, metals, herbicides, fungicides, pesticides and, yes, EMFs. 
Dr. Michael Persinger, PhD, a neuroscientist who has studied the effects of EMFs on cancer cells, states clearly, “For the first time in our evolutionary history, we have generated an entire secondary, virtual, densely complex environment—an electromagnetic soup—that essentially overlaps the human nervous system.”(3)
 
LifeWorks Detection and Solution
At LifeWorks Wellness Center, I see many patients each day. Some come to me in bad shape, knowing their bodies are in a sick state, believing that they have small, everyday ailments. When I put their blood under the Darkfield microscope, it tells me a lot about their body. The majority of the time, we are surprised with what we see. The blood will often reflect a level of distress in the body. This distress is much greater than the symptoms with which the person is dealing. I am saying this to have you, the reader, wake up to what may possibly be occurring. If we can take a proactive role in prevention, we may be able to prevent a health crisis from occurring in the future.
There is hope. At LifeWorks, we treat the whole body. We unravel the mystery of why the body is operating the way it is and offer effective, life enhancing treatments to address it. Our trained providers use cutting edge techniques, including ozone, UVBI, homeopathy and herbs to correct health issues where people have not previously had success. We have helped many patients with EMF toxicity.
