Let Knowledge Heal You

Reading Level: Leisurely

This post is a Physical Reflection, geared specifically toward prevention and/or healing of one’s physical body.

It is vital to continually be increasing in knowledge that will improve our spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical health. New knowledge of how to take good care of your body is always becoming available and is something we should do our best to stay current with. God says, “My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge (Hos. 6:4),” and His point obviously applies to far more than just one’s spiritual life.

New Cell Phone Study

I want to share with you a recent study that few people have heard about, as it just came out in February 08. There have long been questions about the dangers of cell phones, as they are so new that it is impossible to tell the harm that may come after 20 years of using them. Some people believe that brain tumors have been caused by thermal damage coming from cell phones, labeled on your phone with a SAR rating. However, this new study shows that it is actually the information-carrying radio waves that can cause a host of physical consequences such as headaches, fatigue, sleep disruptions, poor concentration, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and ultimately cancer.

At the end of this post, I’m linking to the full article provided by Dr. Joseph Mercola in his newsletter. By following the link, you can read the article about the cell phone study completed in February 08 as well as, and probably more importantly, Dr. Mercola’s explanation of the study and how to apply this new knowledge in ways that will protect your health in this society of constant technological advancements.

For those of you who just want the application of the results, here is a quote by Dr. Mercola from the same article with practical safety tips.

Safety Tips to Limit Your Exposure from Cell Phones and Other Wireless Devices

The British Independent Group on Mobile Phones suggested that headsets are an ideal solution only if they were used with filters to stop the headset wire from acting as an effective antenna. One solution is an air-tube headset. These conduct sound, but prevent any radiation from traveling up the wire to your brain. To date, there are few alternatives to ensure complete safety, but there are some common sense recommendations:
· Limit the amount of time you spend on the phone.
· Limit your exposure to WiFi routers. Find out where they are located in your work environment and stay away from them.
· If you have any land-based (non-cellular) portable phones, do NOT use anything other than the 900 MHz phones as the Gigahertz phones stay on continuously, blasting you with information-carrying radio waves 24/7.
· Use the speakerphone instead of putting the phone to your ear; this is probably one of the single most important steps you can take other than not using your cell phone.
· Use a wired headset to limit your exposure to the cell phone — ideally, an air-tube headset that conducts sound but prevents any radiation from traveling up the wire to your brain. Also make sure the wire is SHIELDED, which prevents the wire from acting as an antenna that could attract more information-carrying radio waves directly to your brain.
· Limit calls inside buildings.
· Use the phone in open spaces as often as possible.
· Limit use by children and preadolescents.
