Zapped – Know Your Pollution

Zapped – Know Your Pollution

zapped-gittleman“Why your Cell Phone Shouldn’t Be Your Alarm Clock and 1,268 Ways to Outsmart the Hazards of Electronic Pollution” is the long subtitle of this book by Ann Louise Gittleman. Because my husband uses his old-fashioned cell phone (not a smart phone that constantly checks Email) as an alarm clock, I hoped this would persuade him to try something different but… no dice.

It prompted me to get a fabric catalog from LessEMF.com so I could make field-dampening pillow cases. (Haven’t done it yet.) You can also get meters to determine how much EMF you have or Stetzerizers to filter out the offending wavelengths (also called Graham-Stetzer filters).

Page 8 offers a chart of infrequences emitted by everyday things from microwaves to power lines.It goes on to explain

“Like everything else in our world, our bodies and every organ and tissue they contain have their own distinct frequency. The late Bruce Tainio… built the first frequency monitor in the world.. and determined that the average frequency of the human body during the daytime is 62-68 Hz. When the frequency drops to 58 Hz, cold and flu symptoms appear; at 55 Hz, disorders like candida take hold, at 52 Hz, Epstein-Barr, and at 42 Hz, cancer.”

The author talks about the work of Nobel Prize winner Gunter Blobel, M.D., Ph.D, who established that cell signaling includes frequencies (energetic signals) which are picked up by peptides. He also studied with Hazel Parcells, M.D., Ph.D. who taught Ms. Gittleman to think of each cell in the body as an electric battery broadcasting the pulsating rhythm of life. When you change the energy, you change how effectively the cells work.

Zapped directed me to AntennaSearch.com where I found these diagrams of the wireless towers near my house. I was relieved because it was so much less than the blasting RF I was exposed to when I worked in a TV station in San Francisco for seven years.

TinFoilHatMy favorite product, one purchased by a friend of mine when she realized how much wireless pollution she was exposed to, is her “tin foil hat.” She wears it most nights, taking a break from time to time because it seems to be so effective that it interferes with dreams. Described in the catalog as, “Stretchy Silver-coated nylon skull cap with ear flaps is lightweight and breathes nicely. Comfortable enough to wear year-round while sleeping, thin enough to be worn under a conventional hat or all on its own.” The perfect gift for someone who has everything.
