Recently, I heard a podcast interview where the self-proclaimed expert advised clients to add metallic objects to their environment because they will help with electro-sensitivity symptoms. He based this on a test which he did not describe, to lay out the "science" for another new material claiming to adsorb RFR and miraculously keep it from getting to people. I do not make any claims on whether or not this material absorbs radio frequencies, since all materials, to my knowledge, absorb radio frequencies to one degree or another.
Here is what I do know, regarding this:
1) There are so many ways to interpret physical phenomena, experiments, and data.
2) If you are standing between a radio signal and an EMF absorbent material, the signal has to pass through you before it can get to the shield behind you. In NYC, RFR come from every direction.
3) Even the most intelligent PhD's make fundamental mistakes, especially when operating outside their field of expertise.
The concept of how various metas and electromagnetism co-act has been an area of personal interest and is one that I see as being confusing for most. When it comes to my own EMF mitigation practices, the bottom line is:
1) does the remediation make sound scientific sense,
2) what are the readings on the EMF Analyzers after EMF shielding has been applied, and
3) how are my clients and I feeling after we mitigate.
Yes. Metallic objects do act as antenna for radio frequencies. An antenna also absorbs EMF. What is incorrect is that it makes it "better" for a person to have more metal in their environment.
1) A metal object won't emit RF, but will reflect RF. If there is a reflective surface behind you, then you will also receive the reflection.
2) Because RF is electromagnetism, metal objects, iron in particular, will fill the core of the solenoid effect of RFR and amplify the intensity. This is how and why electromagnets become up to hundreds of times more powerful when an iron core is inserted inside a solenoid coil. This proprietary diagram spells this out: Iron Core Solenoid
3) Iron Core transformers can also exponentially increase voltage.
As long as we have EMF in our world, we will always have guys showing up looking and sounding like experts telling us they have the newest and best material that can shield us from the harmful effects of EMF.
But, it's not the material. Many materials block out RFR. It's the application and the fundamental problems with the application that are the problem. For example: grounding pads or RFR-blocking clothing.
In the usual application of grounding pads, The user is an electrical conductor and actually becomes a part of the current flowing through the grounding pad. The user's body voltage will read zero, but may actually be conducting several volts.
If that grounding pad is plugged into the ground of a wall outlet, then it is now corrupting the ground in that circuit, thereby increasing the electromagnetic interference that is already on that circuit.
RF clothing is also a ridiculous EMF gimmick. You may be blocking the radio frequencies with that RF fabric shawl or hat, but you are also wearing an antenna that is attracting more radio frequencies and also increasing your skin-body voltage.
The bottom line is that before you go out and spend your hard-earned money on the latest-greatest "thing," be sure that it has been checked out by a reputable EMF expert and try to learn more about shielding different frequencies...or, just ask us at ELEXANA LLC. We love this work.
