New Paint May Lower Your Exposure to EMF Fields

A company called NaturalNano is creating a special paint which will block unwanted cell phone signals.


Nanotechnology is used to mix copper into the paint in a way that deflects radio signals. This will be combined with a filtering device that intercepts phone signals outside the shielded space, effectively letting some transmissions through while blocking others.

Illegal Jamming?
The Wireless Association, the leading cell phone trade group, has argued that any method of selectively blocking calls is illegal. However, since the paint is a passive device, rather than an active jammer, it may be allowable under the laws.

Schools, churches, and performance venues have all sought means of effectively limiting calls to true emergencies.

In spite of all the advantages cellular phones provide us, unfortunately, it's become the norm to hear them ringing loudly and unexpectedly in a crowded movie theatre, concert hall and even church.

While this is great for eliminating rude cell phone users, it occurred to me that this paint may be useful for reducing exposure to the ever increasing levels of wireless signals we are exposed to.

Just think, 100 years ago we did not have to contend with AM, FM, shortwave radio, TV signals, cell phone frequencies, WiFi, portable phones.  I suspect that there is likely a synergistic negative effect on our physiology that likely worsens exponentially as the number of these exposures increase.

I am seriously considering using NaturalNano's new technology to paint the inside walls of my home, and especially my bedroom, to create an EMF neutral zone where my body is not constantly assaulted by frequencies it was never designed to be exposed to.

I still have more analysis to perform but it sure seems like a slick way to minimize exposure to these potentially harmful frequencies.

According to the World Health Organization, some harmful effects EMFs can have on your body include:

  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Stress
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Skin symptoms like prickling, burning sensations and rashes
  • Muscle pains and aches

If you haven't become convinced yet of the dangers of EMF radiation, you need to review the study published in Lancet, which shows that if cell phones were a drug, they would not have been approved.

However, I am in not completely opposed to cell phones. In fact, I have one myself. But it is important to understand that cell phones have the potential to cause your great harm and as such you should use them as little as possible.

When you do use a cell phone, bear in mind that the radiation decreases quite dramatically (exponentially) the further the phone is from your body. Use a headset, and make sure the ENTIRE PHONE is away from your body, as wearing the phone on your belt will cause the radiation to go into your abdomen.
