Electricity and EMFs

We are surrounded by electricity.  Over the last century and a half, humankind has made progress in harnessing and understanding this natural phenomenon.  We are taught to fear electricity when it is concentrated in large quantities but it can be equally as hazardous to your health in small quantities, especially over a prolonged period of exposure.  You may feel slightly unnerved by the buzz of powerlines over your head, but do you feel that same unease when you cradle your cell phone against your cheek? It may seem odd, but the type of electricity sourced by power lines is oddly much less dangerous than that emitted by your cell phone.

Electricity travels in currents and electrical currents produce a magnetic field.  This is referred to as an “electromagnetic field” or EMF for short. Anything that produces an EMF falls into two categories: ionizing and non-ionizing.  Ionizing EMFs are commonly used in diagnostic imaging like x-rays. Non-ionizing EMFs are the sort you encounter daily, and those can be further divided into two sub-categories:  extremely low frequency EMFs and radiofrequency radiation.

Radiofrequency radiation is produced by things like cell phones, wireless routers, and Bluetooth headsets.  Several health risks have been associated with this sort of EMF, from heightened anxiety and chronic headaches, to hormone imbalances, to cancer.  Considering this sort of technology hasn’t been around long enough to definitively determine the long-term effects of exposure, the safest route to avoid potential health problems is to shield our bodies from EMF as much as possible.  

The Lylo bag is a simple way you can protect your body from harmful radiofrequency radiation because the interior is lined with EMF-shielding fabric.  If you stick your cell-phone inside the Lylo bag, the conductive material with which it’s lined keeps the EMF from penetrating your body or anyone else’s.  Make the wisest choice and start protecting yourself and your family today.
