Much can be done to limit your exposure to EMF for free – which is something we focus on a lot in our healthy living tips series. But for situations when that’s not enough, you might be interested in EMF protection products. So, do EMF protection products really work? How can you know? That’s what we’re looking at here with SYB Healthy Living Tip #14: Read The Fine Print (with EMF Protection Solutions).
One thing we repeat a lot here at SYB is that the best EMF protection is absolutely free.
By that we mean that the first thing you should do to protect your health against the harmful effects of EMF radiation is to maximize your distance and limit your use. For example, switching off your cell phone at night and keeping your laptop a safe distance from your body.
But naturally there are times when you simply need to be in close proximity to radiation-emitting devices. EMF shielding products exist to protect you in those moments.
But not all such products are created equal. In fact, some can even do more harm than good.
That’s why it’s so important to read the fine print before choosing which products to buy and use. Just because a company claims a product protects you from EMF, doesn’t mean it protects you from all EMF radiation in all circumstances.
This is why it’s so important to read the fine print– what does the company actually claim its EMF protection products actually do, and what data do they have to support their claims.
Consider questions such as these:
- What claims is the company making?
- Are they transparent about how their products are made and the materials they use?
- Is there any science to support their claims (a great example here are companies who make charms and pendants – there’s simply no scientific basis to back these up).
- If there’s science behind the products, what does it say and is it sound?
Another thing worth investigating is whether there’s any underlying validity to logos and badges (for example “FCC Certified Testing”). These can give products an official-looking air but, as explained here, don’t necessarily mean much at all.
Ultimately, we believe it’s important that anyone buying EMF protection understands what it does and how it works.
That’s why we strongly encourage you to read the fine print, ask questions, and even test for yourself to check that the product really works (yes, we encourage you to do all of this with our own products as well!)
When your health is at stake, the best thing you can do is make informed decisions and know you’re choosing products you can trust. Learn more about why we always say the best EMF protection is free.
