The wireless technology for short range has established. Striking are Bluetooth applications especially in the wireless headsets. Meanwhile often seen: a guy or girl wearing a small device such as a clothespin on the ear. The mobile phone is in your pocket or hanging on the belt. By radio application, the speech is transmitted to the handset. Initially, the communication between devices was the focus: wireless mouse and wireless keyboard found their way into the office world. Always new applications in the meantime occur: industrial automation, communicating with each other play equipment, alarm systems, wireless headset or hands-free kits in cars. Meanwhile Bluetooth modules are integrated for the hands-free function even in cordless phones DECT-standard. Continue reading

Protection against electrosmog: Shielded cables, electricity mains decoupler or wall shield?

shielded cable

use shielded cables where possible

Artificially generated electric fields occur in every house. Cause is the power supply voltage that is present in the power lines and electrical equipment, even if the connected device is not in operation. The voltage is 230 volts in private homes, in medium voltage systems 20 kilovolts (kV) and high voltage systems 110, 220 or 380 kV. Electric fields can affect our health. They are, therefore, to reduce as much as possible. What protective measures taken by the private owner, depends on the state of the house: Old building, new construction, multi-family home, rental or own use. Continue reading

After a weak cell phone radiation: overproduction of free radicals in embryonic cells

Igor Yakymenko

Researcher Yakymenko

A new study of Kavetsky-Instituts/Ukraine on the influence of high-frequency radiation on living cells was published in September 2013. As a reminder, the German Radiation Protection Commission had informed the specialized committees of the German Bundestag in terms of new research results on mobile phone radiation at a hearing in May 2013. Thus, no new information would be available, the reduction of limit values ​​after 26 Federal Emission Control Ordinance (BImSchV) would make necessary. The SSK refers back to the German Mobile Telecommunication Research Programme that completed in 2008.  But further research is done especially abroad. More and more mosaic pieces strung together. The study of Kavetsky Institute was published on the website of the NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information). Continue reading

Bra with mobile phone pocket

mobile phone near the body

not close to the body

The gag, sew a pocket for mobile phones in the bra is already used for some time in America. It should be extremely easy for young girls to plug the phone into the cut quickly and to have within reach. Now hit a few doctors in the U.S. alert: they find a connection between the support point of the phone and breast cancer. Dr. Lisa Bailey in an interview: “I would never wear a handset directly on the body.” Even men could get breast cancer if they carry the device in a shirt pocket. The tenor of the doctors is: better run precautionary as an unnecessary health risk. Continue reading

BioInitiative Report 2012

The BioInitiative Working Group concluded in 2007 that existing public safety limits for electro-magnetic-fields (EMF) were inadequate to protect public health, and agreed that new, biologically-based public safety limits were needed five years ago. The BioInitiative Report was been prepared by more than a dozen world-recognized experts in science and public health policy; and outside reviewers also contributed valuable content and perspective.

Protest against high-voltage power lines in Germany

Triggered by the energy transition in 2011 power to be transported from the windy areas of the North Sea to the South of Germany. As a transmission technique is the so-called high-voltage direct current electric power, abbreviated HVDC provided. The poles should be like a hundred meters high and have a voltage of up to 800 kilovolts (kV). So far, the current transmission in Germany is done by alternating current with a maximum voltage of 380 kV.

Cooking on the magnetic field

stoves with induction hobs

Measuring the magnetic field

Tens of thousands of households in Europe want to give him any more, others regard it with skepticism and distrust. Stoves with induction hobs are on the rise. Technology enthusiasts will see the benefits in the rapid heating of food and in a precise allocation of energy without wastage. The burning of over boiled around the stove is eliminated because only the area of the pan is heated. So, no more scrubbing and mopping!
