Welcome to Phoenix Rising!
Created in 2008, Phoenix Rising is the largest and oldest forum dedicated to furthering the understanding of and finding treatments for complex chronic illnesses such as chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), fibromyalgia (FM), long COVID, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS), and allied diseases.

I use a USB keyboard and mouse. And of course, no RGB or off, because it also generates a strong magnetic field. For electromagnetic radiation, I have some meters. You can also buy shielding from YSHIELD.I know you are discussing electomagnetic fields in general, but I wanted to ask if anyone has tried the Defender laptop shield to protect from electromagnetic radiation from their laptop? I have always been unable to tolerate having my laptop on my lap (after about 15 minutes a weird vibration feeling in my thighs and then my heart rhythm is affected) so I just bought one of these. They are well rated and tested and so far no problems.
I probably will want to see this and the lyme disease study I recently posted reproduced a few times by other researchers since they both fly in the face of the conventional wisdom.Very interesting. The study is here:
Exposure to Magnetic Field Non-Ionizing Radiation and the Risk of Miscarriage: A Prospective Cohort Study
The increase in miscarriage risk was quite large: they found women who had higher levels of magnetic field exposures (from sources such as electrical appliances, transformers, WiFi, smart meters, cell towers and mobile phones) were 2.72 times more likely to have a miscarriage.
Miscarriage is common: among women who know they're pregnant, it's estimated one in six of these pregnancies will end in miscarriage. 1 So that means a 2.72 factor increase in miscarriages will lead to a lot more miscarriages.

Are you sure you aren't doing the same?t’s plausible that common levels of EMR could be causing some sort of deleterious effect, but when one has a conclusion in mind and then goes looking for evidence to support it what you’re doing isn’t science, it’s wish fulfillment. If you’ve already decided what you’re going to find, you’ll find it to your satisfaction.
Are you sure you aren't doing the same?
There are hundreds of studies out there showing negative effects of nnemf, not just one or two. There even is a mechanism that doesnt envolve ionization of dna, which is the prime reason conventional science says emfs have no effect.
The scientific method is great however humans are in control of it and they have egos, financial interest , biases ,etc. I think because of this , mainstream science is wrong on this area and many others , despite their confidence and mocking of those who challenge them.
Neither am I.Am not scientifically trained enough to evaluate all such studies, nor do I have time if I was.
Yet I rather doubt that researchers who found no effect all had shares in the power company, radio manufacturers or Samsung. It seems more likely to me that there was motivated reasoning in the studies which did find an effect, as the few i’ve looked into did not hold up under further scrutiny.
I agree, I am also not qualified to say one way or the other, but at the very least I will say this is NOT a settled issue. There are dozens of papers coming out every year showing negative effects even at normal dosages (not 1000 times).I can’t state great certainty one one way or the other, I’m not qualified to do that. About the best I can say is that exposing people to ~1000 times the weak fields we are speaking of seems to do nothing, while several million times does have an effect: Enough microwave power will cook flesh, as will enough of their close cousin IR.
If I’m going to worry about EMF it’ll be UV, which is a known health problem.
Or perhaps it’s proof that picking through piles of studies to find a tidbit or two that agrees with what you wanted to hear is not science.
