With technology, there’s only one way forward: upwards. With our internet needs and demands exceeding our current capabilities by day, we are now seeing the pilot and rise of the 5G network. This technology is a huge step up from the current 4G, 3G and 2G networks, thanks to its insanely faster speed, higher bandwidth allowing us to access information from anywhere anytime. However, just like free money – there’s always a cost – in this case, that comes in the form of higher EMF radiation. 5G networks, as other technologies have not been fully researched and thoroughly explored for there to be concrete data on its direct implications on our biological systems and its ability to cause oxidative stress. The reason behind this is that 5G networks require more densely packed antennas – in other words, cell phone towers have to be more closely located to the area of usage. Thus with more cell phone towers, we are exposed to even higher levels of EMF radiation. You can check out our blog to explore the different EMF effects such technology can have.
But with the world’s ever-increasing network needs, you’re bound to be exposed to higher levels of EMF radiation – but how do you best protect yourself in the meantime?
- Invest in EMF protection technology – make everywhere you go and work an EMF safe zone to be. Airestech creates devices for personal use, home and office use to provide as much protection as possible without you having to drastically change your lifestyle. Our devices have also been scientifically proven to provide maximum defense.
- Maintain a distance from 5G sources – now this one might sound like a sort of impossible thing to do given that almost 65% of us are always in possession of our mobile devices. It’s understandable that you’ll need your phone when you’re out and about and need to contact people, but you don’t have to have it 24/7. Especially when you sleep, try to keep it at a safe distance. When you’re out, you should keep it in a separate bag instead of your back pocket so that there’s some sort of distance.
- Keep your living spaces EMF free zones – the areas where you spend most of your time can be made EMF free by unplugging your wifi enabled devices when not required – for example the TV overnight. You can also keep your phone in a different room, move the router to a communal area as opposed to your bedroom and even unplug the wifi when you’re not using it. This might sound impossible now, but 20 years ago – this was a way of life for most!
- Maintaining a healthy diet with adequate antioxidants – we’ve explored how EMFs can lead to oxidative stress due to the imbalance of free radicals to antioxidants. But you can take it a step further and by upping your intake of antioxidants, you are providing yourself with another layer of protection. Foods with higher antioxidant levels include blueberries, walnuts, pomegranate, basil, cinnamon and more. Consuming enough omega 3 fatty acids has also been shown to help you fight increasing levels of free radicals – and this can come from anything from salmon, flaxseeds or even taking omega 3 pills depending on your diet.
Hopefully, this provided you with extra tips on how to protect yourself as we navigate a more connected and technology driven than ever world!
