One of the big selling points for new cell phones on the market today are upgrades to technology which allow devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S7 to “fast charge” using “Qi” technology, portable wireless charging pads designed for small devices such as cellphones. Wireless charging stations can charge phones in about half the time as “plug in” devices and save on wear and tear to internal plug-in ports.
But do these conveniences come at a price to your health?
Is Wireless Charging Safe?
“Qi” uses electromagnetic fields to transfer power between the cellphone and the pad. This process, also called “induction,” was invented by Nicola Tesla over 100 years ago.
Industry organizations, such as the “Wireless Power Consortium,” have declared “Qi” wireless charging technology to be safe because it uses “tight coil wiring,” which supposedly produces less EMF emissions.
Other experts beg to differ. In 2011, the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) declared cell phones and WiFi in general to be “Group 2B Possible Carcinogens,” possible cancer-causing agents.
In 2016, the US Department of Health and Human Services National Toxicology Program announced findings of a study that directly linked cellphone use to cancer. Other studies have made the connection time and again between close-range cellphone use, brain cancer and breast cancer.
Qi wireless “pad” technology is just the beginning of a new wave of surface-area charging options for 2017. Other devices use rezence technology, which utilizes magnetic resonance. Rezence is found in desktops, tabletops and even entire kitchen counter tops: you simply put your computer or other compatible device on the surface and, voila, instant charge. Wireless tabletops are beginning to appear in US Starbuck’s, in McDonald’s in Britain and in some new car models.
The real danger of rezence technology lies in its ability to provide wireless at long distances; much
of this technology can connect devices from over 20 feet away. Once these chargers find a connection, they send out radio-frequency signals. The amount of “free-flowing power” produced by tabletop charging is a lot more than regular WiFi, according to some industry insiders.
“I don’t think I would want to be in a room with free moving power signals,” said one wireless tech executive in a recent interview.
Integrated Bluetooth technologies in desktop chargers as well as in other new devices such as wireless headphones (the new iPhones no longer have headphone jacks), iWatches and Fitbits add another dimension to the EMF risk, especially for the millions of individuals who wear these devices all day long.
On the horizon: 5G
In July, 2016, the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved the construction of a nation-wide “5G” cellphone network. 5G utilizes “millimeter waves” which operate at a much higher frequency than 2, 3, or 4G. Millimeter waves also can’t penetrate building walls as readily, leading to the speculation that one 5G “antennae base” may eventually be needed for every 12 homes.
Some in the EMF Safety community, such as Dr. Joel Moskowitz of the UC-Berkeley School of Public Health, express concerns that not only will millimeter waves have a more harmful effect on human tissue, they may also effect bacteria and protozoa, putting the very building blocks of our natural world at risk. The full conversion of existing cell towers to be “5G compatible” is still a few years away; it is not too late to express your opposition to this harmful technology upgrade, which many individuals and organizations around the country are choosing to do.
Reducing your exposure to EMFs through turning off devices at night and keeping sensitive body parts such as the breasts and brain away from cellphones and other WiFi devices is the easiest thing you can do to protect yourself and your family from the onslaught of new EMF threats. Sometimes exposure to EMF is unavoidable though. In this case, consider utilizing EMF protection technology. In my experience, the most reliable and scientifically-based EMF protection devices out there can be found through Gia Wellness. This is the only company that has patented technology and scientific studies proving the protective effects of their products against EMFs. My home, my electronics, my cell phone and my body are protected with this high-tech resonance technology.
