EMFs: A Hidden Danger of Air Travel

Some people are nervous when it comes to air travel and for good reason. The publicity of events like the US Airways Flight 1549 crash into the Hudson River and the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 bizarre disappearance are enough to put some travelers on edge when entering an airplane. However, these occurrences are very rare.

The real threat, however, lies in what is in every airport and airplane, regardless of the flight number.

EMF Radiation

EMFs, also known as electromagnetic fields, are invisible lines of force that emanate from any electrical or wireless device. Low-frequency EMFs are emitted by electricity and appliances, while high-frequency EMFs are generated by wireless devices.

These man-made EMFs interfere with our natural EMF by cutting us off from the earth’s electromagnetic field. Man-made EMFs also enter into our bodies.

Since we resonate naturally with the earth’s electromagnetic field, which nurtures and creates balance in the body, any interference or removal from this frequency can cause harmful health effects.

Nowhere do these negative health effects become more pronounced than during air travel. After one moves through the airport filled with metal detectors, moving sidewalks, monitors, and more, they enter the most dangerous and concentrated source of EMFs—the airplane.

To begin to understand the EMF exposure, first consider the sources impacting the airplane:
• Radar from the ground, as well as the plane and other planes
• Jet engine
• Cockpit computers
• Electronic sensors
• Communications equipment
• Electrical wiring throughout the cabin
• High levels of static electricity generated in the fuselage
• Wi-Fi signals

Plus, flight passengers are also saddled with cell phones and laptop computers.

Random measurements taken inside airplanes in flight reveal dangerous radiation, sometimes exceeding 50 milligauss (mG). Compare that to the amount that the Environmental Protection Agency deems safe: 0.5 to 2.5 mG. That’s 20 to 100 times the “safe” exposure.

A 3.5-hour flight at altitudes of 30,000 feet or higher can expose someone to a greater level of radiation than a chest X-ray.

If that is not scary enough, consider that the proximity and interaction with the earth’s surface helps determine our protection from man-made EMFs. The further we get away from it, the less protection we receive.

Flying at 30,000 feet offers us absolutely no protection and severely interrupts our natural synchronicity with the earth’s healing energy field. This is the worst-case scenario with regard to our well-being: high, concentrated doses of EMFs with zero EMF protection.

Physiological Effects

What happens to the body in the presence of EMFs? The following are possible physiological effects:
• Acid production
• Oxygen deficiency
• Cellular edema
• Exacerbation of existing symptoms
• Acceleration of microorganism replication
• Biological disorganization
• Increase in pain and inflammation
• Catabolic hormone production
• Production of free radicals and metabolic toxins
• Speed-up of electrical activity of the brain

These effects may cause jet lag, digestive problems, headaches, aches and pains, and foggy thinking, as well as accelerate infections.

Taking steps to stay well hydrated and stress-free, along with consuming probiotics and wearing EMF-deflecting devices, can help you have a safer air travel experience.

Offset the effects of excessive EMFs during air travel with these tips:

• Drink plenty of water prior to and during flight
• Get enough rest prior to the flight
• Plan ahead to reduce any last-minute stressors
• Consume probiotic-rich foods and drinks for several days prior to the flight
• Don’t eat while airborne
• Wear EMF-neutralizing or deflecting technology during the flight
