Hot Topics: EMFs can TILT your Health

The electromagnetic spectrum includes non-ionizing and ionizing radiation. Non-ionizing exposure comes from everyday sources like cell phones, microwaves, and power lines.

While our bodies naturally handle a certain level of electromagnetic fields (EMFs), excessive exposure, particularly to non-ionizing radiation from modern electronic devices and infrastructure, can lead to health issues.

Some individuals are particularly sensitive to EMFs, experiencing a range of symptoms from headaches and fatigue to more severe cardiac and cognitive issues, a condition often referred to as electromagnetic hypersensitivity.

Prolonged exposure to EMFs is thought to induce oxidative stress in the body, potentially leading to blood and cardiovascular abnormalities.

Furthermore, this sensitivity might be exacerbated by an accumulation of various environmental toxins, leading to a condition known as toxicant-induced loss of tolerance (TILT). This heightened sensitivity can make individuals more reactive to even low levels of chemicals or EMFs.

Recent studies also suggest that EMFs can affect heart rate variability, indicating stress on the cardiovascular system, and there's growing concern about the long-term impact of chronic EMF exposure on both humans and wildlife.
