17. EMF Protection | Practical Tips from a Former Telecommunications Engineer
5G is the next wireless communication network that is supposed to work even better: with greater speed for a greater bandwidth of data transmission.
5G will be rolled out worldwide, and aggressively throughout the United States. This has many people wondering, Will the 5G rollout be safe for my family and I?
Daniel DeBaun, previously a telecommunications engineer at Bell Labs and AT&T, describes EMFs as "bees in the room." One bee won't hurt you unless you are allergic. The more bees in the room, however, the greater the risk of getting hurt by the bees.
You can think of EMF sources as bees. The more EMF sources, the greater the risk you will be harmed. 5G is a new species of bees that will be layered into our more-crowded-than-ever environment that is full of new species of bees (or EMFs).
Daniel DeBaun founded his company DefenderShield after he realized that all electronic devices emit low levels of radiation called electromagnetic fields (EMFs), and that EMFs have been proven harmful after a long period of exposure close to the body. He couldn't find a product that completely blocked all radiation coming from our mobile devices so he decided to make a shield that blocked up to 100% of mobile device emissions. And with that, DefenderShield was born.
As an EMF-expert, Daniel co-authored a book with his son Ryan DeBaun, called Radiation Nation. Radiation Nation is an easy-to-read guide to everything EMF, from current research to the best tips and tricks to protecting yourself from mobile device radiation.
Daniel provides great context around EMFs and how they can affect our biology, and therefore how to consider 5G. We also discuss our bodies' own EMFs, how "grounding" works, and EMF protection approaches that work.
