Are you suffering from Electro Pollution?

We are all becoming increasingly reliant on digital devices- cell phones, Bluetooth devices, tablet notebooks and laptops. Our homes and work environments are packed with modems, routers, cable, television, electric wiring, microwave ovens, surveillance systems, low voltage lighting and baby monitors. Outside our homes and office are transformers, cell towers and high voltage power lines. Even our cars are equipped with GPS, Wi-Fi and digital monitoring devices.

These everyday wireless technologies and electricity generate Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) in the Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) and Radio Frequency (RF) ranges which are forms of Electro Pollution- invisible pollutants which are absorbed by our bodies.

In 2011, the World Health Organization (WHO)/International Agency for Research on Cancer classified Wireless radiation in the RF and Microwave frequency ranges as possible carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B), while ELF has been on the list since 2001.

While long term effects on human exposure to electro pollution continues to be studied, it is widely agreed that Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS) is an increasing condition found in humans. Symptoms of this condition include Neurological (headaches, dizziness, nausea, difficulty concentrating and fatigue), Cardiac (pain or pressure in the chest, low or high blood pressure), Respiratory (sinus infection, bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma), as well as a host of other conditions such as skin rash, deteriorating vision, thyroid issues and sleep disturbances.

While everyone is at risk in varying degrees, people living in high rise housing complexes are at greatest risk for electro pollution as multiple floors and 24 hour activity means bodies are absorbing radiation throughout the night.

While there is little one can do to free oneself from the sources of EMF, there are measures one can take to limit the bodies absorption during sleep.

Dapwood Furniture now offers our canopy bed frame with a specially made fabric designed to block RF and EMF radiation during sleep. By draping the sleep area with this barrier fabric, sleepers are guaranteed a radiation-free environment. Stylish and breathable, this fabric canopy insures the healthiest nights sleep. Another example of Dapwood working to produce the healthiest, most eco friendly furniture around.
