Update on EMFs and 5G

By

After being unwillingly forced to investigate about the possible dangers of electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) after an electronic gas meter was installed (against my wishes), I emerge from a week of research with what I hope is a more balanced perspective.

Bottom line for me so far: You have to test your own situation before you get hysterical about things. I bought a Trifield TF2 meter which tests different frequencies (Radio Frequency, Electric voltage, and Magnetic, which is the induced current), in both standard (to measure against “standards,” which the owner’s manual found online gives you), and “weighted,” which will display the measurement of fields in which the higher frequencies are counted more heavily. 

If this meter is accurate (Amazon reviews make me wonder; how can I know?), I don’t have much to worry about in my home.

UNLESS of course, I develop EMF Hypersensitivity. To me, the jury is still out about whether we each have a personal threshold beyond which we display symptoms.  An engineer I spoke with explained the ranges of concern, and my readings fall below that.  I did remove the iHome next to my bed due to high levels of EMFs.

The engineer also explained that the electric “smart meters” were of more concern than the gas or water ones, because they pulse more frequently. However, testing it with my EMF meter, I found that the gas meter, at least the day I tested it, pulsed around every two minutes.  And it’s the erratic pulsation that seems to be problematic to our cells. Much depends on where the smart meter is located. In my case, thankfully the electric meter is outside the garage door, and not near any bedrooms. Proximity is a big deal–or so they say.

I still don’t think I have real answers. The testing is the start. I plan to call my utility companies and find out exactly when these devices send their signals. The other thing I still have to investigate is “dirty electricity.” My husband regularly wakes at around 4am and can’t get back to sleep.  Is that when the smart meters “pulse” a big download? I just don’t know yet.

As far as 5G goes, that does seem to be a big concern for everyone in the know, this engineer included, because of the much higher frequency, the closer proximity, and the fact that it will be all over. Now, we can leave our homes and go outside for a break. Soon, with 5G, going outside could be more dangerous than staying in a high-EMF home.

So it’s 5G we have to fight, while there’s time.  The 5G Crisis Summit gives all sorts of help in how to do that, including links to contact your officials.

If you’re concerned about your personal situation, I recommend getting a good EMF meter and testing your living spaces. Start with the bed, then wherever else you most spend your time. You can limit your exposure as your sensitivity dictates. I was relieved to know that my exposures were not very high. (I have most of my electronics wired, and I turn off the WiFi at night.)

It’s important not to let yourself stress out about it. Be sensible, do what you can, and don’t worry about what you can’t control. That’s where the “trust in God” factor comes in. I particularly like Psalm 91 for wonderful images that bolster my faith.

One final thought. The problem may not be the amount of exposure per se, but the quantity over time. That is what is untested. I just hope we won’t find out when it’s too late.
