Electro-smog is on everyone’s lips today because of its harmful health effects. No wonder, since it is increasing almost every day. The new data transfer frequencies, called LTE or G4, represent a new step in this direction that leads us more and more to the disease.
What is electrosmog?
Electrosmog refers to the totality of electromagnetic influences on any location.
We are constantly exposed to such electromagnetic influences, because every molecule, every atomic particle, has an electromagnetic field. And the sun, just like our earth, produce electromagnetic fields.
Even four generations before us, almost all the fields present in nature were harmless to us, because they were either too weak to have an influence on us, or essential to our life, like sunlight.
ut with the development of electric current in all modern aspects, our natural environment has turned into a very dense network of multiple radiations.
Invisible, inaudible and perceptible only to very few human beings, electrosmog has become a permanent threat to our health.
About 120 years ago, there was no electrosmog, only pure nature
How is electrosmog born?
Electrosmog, as it is called, arises from the accumulation of various electromagnetic influences on any place.
A bedside lamp creates a magnetic field that can be harmful to health, but it does not yet constitute electrosmog.
Electrosmog only arises when a alarm clock, a television and a wi-fi network act simultaneously in the room.
In addition, electrosmog can be reinforced by external high-frequency radiation, such as a telecommunications antenna or your own cordless telephone (DECT radiation) and that of the neighboring apartment.
What are the various electrosmogs?
Electrosmog is simply a general term for the most diverse electromagnetic influences. The specialist tells him about electromagnetic fields. Precise physical studies would be too complex here and would rather risk confusing the layman. This is why we will only cite here the various aspects relevant to our purpose:
DC and AC electromagnetic fields
We first distinguish between continuous fields and alternating fields.
Continuous fields, which are relatively rare, are the least harmful to humans. All battery-powered electrical devices are direct current devices.
The electrical circuit of a cell phone also creates a DC electromagnetic field, and when the phone is in Airplane mode, only the DC field acts. But in normal mode, the phone emits pulsed high frequencies and thus becomes harmful to health.
The effect of a direct field always remains the same, and its negative and positive poles always have the same direction, whereas alternating fields change direction according to frequency.
The electric current in our homes forms an alternating field with a frequency of 50 Hz. This means that the direction of the field changes fifty times per second.

Low frequency alternating fields
In alternating electromagnetic fields, a distinction is made between low and high frequency fields.
Source of electrosmog: high-voltage lines
They carry low-frequency current with extraordinarily high voltage values, up to one million volts
Low frequencies include all wired fields, which have frequencies from 1 Hz to 30,000 Hz. High-voltage lines also carry low-frequency alternating current, which is exactly 50 Hz, household current; the electrical voltage, on the other hand, is between 10,000 and one million volts.
House current, with all wires attached and wires free, as well as all appliances and lamps connected to it, creates a large low-frequency alternating field.
This field can extend to metals and damp building materials in the immediate vicinity of the cables. This has the consequence in most cases that the walls themselves have an electromagnetic charge and create a corresponding radiation field.
In low frequency fields, we still distinguish between magnetic field and electric field.
The magnetic field
It is produced by the active current, therefore wherever appliances or lamps are connected. The physical unit of measurement of the magnetic field is the nanotesla (nT).
The electric field
Electric fields are present wherever a cable carries current, without a lamp or appliance being plugged in. Even extension cords under the bed while you sleep create an electric field. The physical unit of measurement of the electric field the volt per meter (V/m)
High frequency alternating fields
Source of electrosmog: relay antennas
They emit high-frequency radiation on the roofs of houses, which threaten our health.
Such fields always have an emitter that produces them. On the other hand, they do not need a receiver to act. The radiation emitted creates a high-frequency alternating field, which cannot be interrupted and which passes through walls.
These fields meet us here:
- Cell phones (GSM, UMTS, etc.)
- Mobile phone antennas
- Cordless telephony (DECT radiation)
- Microwave oven
- CB Radio
Why is electrosmog harmful?
The harmfulness of electrosmog is still disputed to this day. This is mainly due to the fact that power supply and operating companies want to avoid possible claims for damages. However, there are enough studies that have been able to provide conclusive evidence.
By seriously studying this theme, we come across two explanations for the harmfulness of electrosmog:
Disorders and bodily damage caused by electrosmog
Intercellular communication takes place through one trillion electrical impulses per second.
Added to this is the fact that the current in our body has a strength of 4 picoamperes. Cellular and cordless phones, on the other hand, radiate 0.2 amps, or 50 billion times stronger. It is enough to imagine that the human body forms 1 billion electrical links every second, to easily understand what are the attacks that the human being must support.
Disorder of hormonal balance by electrosmog
It has now been proven that electrosmog in the bedroom is responsible for the drop in melatonin production. It is reduced in some cases to 40% of the body’s own normal production.
Nocturnal melatonin production can be reduced by up to 40% by electrosmog. Deep sleep is thus impossible.
We human beings also have an electromagnetic field. The body voltage is around 100 millivolts. If we are constantly in fields with much higher values, the overload can be very heavy for the body, because it must compensate for this influence. It requires energy.
Melatonin, produced at night only by the pineal gland, is responsible for complete relaxation during sleep, and among other things, for strengthening the immune system.
It is proven that in the deep sleep phase the necessary brain frequency of 4 to 8 Hz is constantly disturbed by electromagnetic frequencies.
Decreased melatonin secretion has also been found to increase cancer risk.
Further information on the subject of melatonin can be found atWikipedia.
Particularly recommended is the book „Melatonin – Fake miracle or real revolution?” by scientists Russell Reiter and Jo Robinson. In particular, it presents scientific studies proving that electrosmog causes a strong reduction in the production of melatonin.
Is electrosmog noticeable?
Very few humans perceive the presence of electrosmog. Because it is invisible and its effect is subtle. But there are always more sufferers, who react above all to high frequencies with physical pain. In almost all cases, the sensitivity begins with a feeling of fog in the head and a lack of concentration.
How do you recognize electrosmog?
Électrosmog en Suisse
Mobile phone antennas in Switzerland can be quickly located on the OFCOM website.
Electrosmog cannot be recognized because it is invisible and has no characteristics perceptible to our senses. Only reflection allows us to identify it. Where is the nearest mobile phone antenna? What appliances do I have in my house? Or do I create radiation fields myself (wi-fi, cordless phones, baby monitors, etc.)? Do I use a microwave oven?
En fait, la question “How do you recognize electrosmog?” no longer arises today, because low frequency electrosmog is present in all buildings and high frequency electrosmog, in addition to being present in most dwellings and houses, exists practically everywhere, even in nature wild, due to the proliferation of mobile telephone antennas and other transmitting installations.
In Switzerland, you will find the mobile phone antenna near you by consulting the website of the Federal Office of Communications. Click several times by double-clicking on the national map, until you can see your house. Aller directement à la page.
In France there is a similar service. A quick tour to realize the (impressive) number of antennas in operation. Click here to go to the site “Antennes Mobiles“.
Residents of Germany will find this information on the website of the Bundesnetzagentur.
Residents of Austria will find this information on the Senderkataster.
Which types of electrosmog are particularly harmful?
Source of electrosmog: Transformer station.
It is a particular cause of cancer for children, if their bed is located in the direct vicinity of such a station.
Are particularly harmful, without doubt, high frequency radiation fields, so wi-fi, cell phone, DECT, microwaves. But low-frequency electrosmog is also harmful when subjected to it over the long term.
American scientist Nancy Wertheimer, now deceased, specialized in the influence of low-frequency electrosmog on the death rate of children.
In numerous studies, she has proven that children who slept near cabins or processing facilities had three times the death rate from leukemia than children without such influences.
The leukemia rate of children who lived 50 meters or less from a high-voltage pylon was, in Wertheimer’s studies, 70% higher than in children who were not subject to such influences.
When is electrosmog harmful?
The legislator has set limit values which cannot be exceeded. However, they are very high, unrealistic and no doubt reflect the desires of industry, but not adequate values for human health.
However, there are guidelines from habitat biologists, which, being well below the legal limit values, thus provide a better framework for estimation. Practice shows that these values are greatly exceeded in most households.
If you have a measuring device, be aware that electric fields of more than 5 V/m are considered harmful to health. As for the magnetic fields, they should not exceed 100 nT.
Electrosmog, whatever the values admitted, is particularly harmful when present in bedrooms or children’s rooms, because it reduces the production of melatonin and prevents deep relaxation.
How to avoid electrosmog?
We can hardly avoid electrosmog, but we can ensure, through harmonization, that it is no longer harmful. Harmonization takes place quickly and without problems, and it can be taken with you when you change your habitat.
Best-Harmony-Life offers, in addition to global harmonization, local and individual harmonization solutions.
here are countless other methods to reduce or even avoid the effects of electrosmog. Some of them are presented below.
However, harmful radiation fields can also be reduced. Here are four main measures:
- Buying a landline phone
- Removal of the microwave oven
- Cable connection instead of wi-fi
- Removal of power lines near the bed
Buying a landline phone
Nice as a cordless phone can be, the price you pay in your health for this little extra comfort, could be painfully high because this form of high frequency is particularly harmful to human beings. and the animal.
With the good old telephone, conversations are safe for health. But the touch-tone telephone is also recommended, as long as it is connected by cable to the wall telephone socket.
Today you can almost only buy devices that emit only when you use them. But even in this case, the danger of cordless telephones decreases very little, because the radiation remains extremely harmful as soon as you telephone. Children especially should not use cordless phones for long conversations with their grandmother or their friend next door, because children do not yet have the adaptability of adults.
And if you still have an old wireless model at home, you should quickly change it, because old devices have permanent radiation.
If you’re wondering why your dog, cat or parakeet isn’t doing too well, unplug your cordless phone system for a few days and use the good old landline. Don’t be surprised to see your beloved pet getting better every day.
Removal of the microwave oven
Source of electrosmog: the microwave oven
Convenient, but in every way very harmful to health.
Despite manufacturers’ statements to the contrary, all microwave ovens emit harmful waves. This can easily be seen with a measuring device.
Apart from the high charge of electrosmog emitted by a microwave oven, irradiated food loses all nutritional quality. A person who feeds exclusively on food prepared in the microwave will fall seriously ill in a short time.
Cable connection instead of wi-fi
Pour réduire l’électrosmog:
Connecting by cable is not only much healthier, it is even faster than wi-fi
With DLNA or CPL technology, you will also have more mobility, because you can, using a corresponding adapter, plug your cable into any normal socket to have an Internet connection.
It is especially for children’s rooms that this technology is a practical and healthy alternative to wi-fi.
Removal of power lines near the bed
Any cable, any extension cord under your bed increases the electric field in which you place yourself at night. This is why it is recommended not only to turn off the bedside lamp before going to sleep, but also to remove the cord from the main socket. For the same reason, it is not recommended to use electric heating blankets or electrically operated beds.
How to protect yourself from electrosmog?
There are different approaches and therefore many products and theories. We must mention here above all the classic approach, because it is the only one that is officially recognized.
