Hello everybody and welcome back to witchy wellness radio. Again, this is your host Lauren. And this is a show you learn how your body and your emotions are not in the way but actually leading the way and today we have the amazing R blank we’re talking about EMF, Radiation Health and Safety. He is a CEO of shield your body whose mission it is to make technology safer, with hundreds of 1000s of customers in over 30 countries and having been interviewed on platforms ranging from ABC television to electric sense. Our is internationally filed experts on issues of EMF health and safety. He was inspired to create MIB or shield your body when he co author the best selling book overpowered with his father, Dr. Martin Blake, one of the world’s most leading EMF scientist, and he has degrees from Columbia University and UCLA. So one smart cookie. Welcome to the show.
R Blank 2:32
Thank you very much, Lauren. It’s a pleasure to be here.

Loren Cellentani 2:34
Yeah, I told you off air we were talking, I’m excited to dive into this. I can’t believe I haven’t had anybody on suck EMF, or anything about technology and to this point. So you know, the stage is yours. But I would love obviously runs in the family. But I would love to hear kind of how you got to that point, maybe your own personal transformation of how shield your body came to fruition?
R Blank 2:58
Sure. So well, as you mentioned, my father was Dr. Martin Blanc. And he’d been doing this type of research. So he did a very specific type of research at Columbia University Medical School about the effects of EMF on on cells. And he’d been doing that almost my entire life. And so I was kind of aware of the issue. And I knew why we didn’t have a microwave oven. And I knew why I wasn’t supposed to get a cell phone. But I wasn’t really deep into the issue. So then it was 2012. And my father had a contract to write a book. And while he was a very, very smart man, and a very good writer. His experience was writing for other academics. And this book was supposed to be for real people. And so he was having some trouble, and he asked me for some help. And that book became overpowered, and I jumped in and just started writing it with him. And in the course of writing that book, I mean, obviously I learned a lot because that book goes, about half of it is very heavy on the science and but explained in ways that regular people can understand and communicate communicates what the significance of the science is really telling us. And in the course of writing that book, not only did I get that education, I realized that the science is really quite strong. And this was almost 10 years ago, it’s even stronger now because sometimes, you know if they’ll see a covered on the news, they’ll say there’s a debate, you know, does his cell our cell phones harmful? Do cell phones cause cancer? It’s always posed in the form of a debate. Two sides to the question and really what the science is showing it is very strong that this stuff is bioactive, this stuff is harmful. But at the same time, the sources of this stuff, the sources of EMF they’re not only everywhere around us, they form the entire basis of modern society. So you can’t get rid of them unless you’re willing to go back to, you know, basically the 1850s before the light bulb. And so I realized, you know, this stuff is harmful, the science is very clear, but this stuff is unavoidable. So there have to be safer ways to use technology. And that’s where the idea for for swipey, what became si B came from that was 2012. In 2013, I launched my first product.
Loren Cellentani 5:32
Amazing, yeah, it blows my mind. It’s kind of it’s avoidable. Really, I mean, unless you’re Amish, but even Amish people have to deal with radiation elsewhere, because all of us, you know, up in Ohio, we do have a lot of Amish people. But it’s funny because my parents just redid their house, and they’ll have somebody else drive them in a car, they’ll have their cell phones that they will only plug in and use in people’s houses, they still I mean, depending on their religion, they will still get affected. But how can we protect ourselves because it’s inevitable, it’s everywhere. And I, you know, we can get into this maybe this question or later, and the impacts of 5g and I feel like it’s just going to keep going and going and going.
R Blank 6:19
So the way to protect yourself, I call this actually came from my father, but slightly rebranded the two key rules of EMF protection. And those are minimize and maximize. So you want to minimize your use of EMF emitting technology, and maximize the distance. Now, I guess before I get a little bit further into that, I should step back a little bit. EMF is emitted by everything. It’s a form of energy. Electromagnetic Field stands for electromagnetic field, it’s also sometimes called electromagnetic radiation. It’s a form of energy. And it comes from everything that runs on electricity, and everything that communicates wirelessly. So that those are the sources that we’re talking about here, which is increasingly everything in our lives, as you’ve noted. And so, so the best ways to protect yourself again, going back is minimize and maximize the two key rules. So minimize your use of EMF emitting technology. And then the second is maximize the distance between the technology in your body when it is in use. Now, these these are actually quite, quite simple to implement, right, because the goal is not to eliminate your exposure to EMF, that’s impossible, and you drive yourself crazy trying to accomplish that the goal is to reduce it. And so minimizing your use of EMF emitting technology, that could mean putting your phone into airplane mode, when you’re not actively using it. It could mean not buying a smartwatch, it could mean not buying a smart fridge or a smart thermostat. It could mean turning off your Wi Fi at night, and you’re not even using it there are all these different ways to minimize your use. And that’s I think it’s becoming increasingly important as more and more of these products are turning into you know, they call them smart. When stuff when a product gets smart, that means it becomes another source of this wireless EMF radiation. And you know, really consider Do I really need that smart? I mean, honest to God, there is a smart tampon on the market? Do you really need a smart tampon? Do you need really need a smart kitty litter box? Do you read all of these things that are smart? Do you really need them? And the answer almost all the time is no. And so that’s what I mean by minimize. Now the second and that one’s kind of obvious. The second one is maximized, right maximize the distance, this one might be a little less intuitive. So I want to explain it the power so the power of EMF radiation diminishes exponentially with distance. And so that means if you have your phone one inch away from you, and you have it two inches away from you, when you’ve gone from one to two inches, you’ve cut the power of that exposure by 75%. That’s what an exponential decline in power means. And so the further you can keep this tech away from your body, the lower your exposure will be and the safer you will be. So examples of that are not using your laptop in your lap, keeping your Wi Fi router as far away from where people spend their time in your house as possible. And never carrying your phone in your pocket or your bra, which so many people do. These are all examples. So those are the two key rules that anyone can start implementing right away to reduce their exposure and reduce their corresponding health risks. Once you get beyond that, then there’s also EMF protection products, like the ones that that we make here. It shields your body. And so that would include for instance, my phone pouch, which may It’s safer to carry your phone, the laptop pad, which makes it safer to use your laptop, air tube headsets, which make it safer to use headsets with your phone. So there’s all sorts of ways you can further reduce your exposure by using EMF protection products. But the best, most important things to do are minimize and maximize.
Loren Cellentani 10:22
Yeah, I know you said headphones there, I was just gonna ask you what that because I go out of my way not to use earbuds, either wireless earbuds or because they’re right there in your ear, even though your phone’s not next year, those earbuds are speaking with your phone. Could you explain a little bit more about that and why air tubes are better?
R Blank 10:43
Sure. So air pods are the most popular example these days of these Bluetooth headsets. But they’ve been around now, you know, for decades, they use a technology called Bluetooth, which is a wire a form of wireless communication that is very similar to Wi Fi, and quite similar to cell phones as well. So it uses the same type of what’s called radio frequency or microwave radiation, to communicate wirelessly with whatever devices it’s paired with. Now with Bluetooth, you have the devices like the air pods, they have much less power than a cell phone, right, because a cell phone is designed to be able to communicate over many, many miles. Whereas Bluetooth, depending on there’s there’s there’s three types, but you know, basically 10 to 30 feet is the distance for Bluetooth. And so they have much less power. At the same time, they’re designed to be, as you noted, who held against your body for extended periods of time. And when you’re talking about in the ear, it’s in close proximity to the brain, and a part of the head that has no skull, there’s a hole in the skull there, because that’s how your ear works. And that means even the the level of natural shielding that your skull provides isn’t present. So all of the same types of health risks that are associated, or linked with Wi Fi radiation and cellphone radiation. These still apply with Bluetooth devices like air pods, in terms of you know, what the science says about air pods and similar products, you know, we don’t have the science, because air pods like basically all of this technology, it’s always deployed first, without any long term testing. And then over the coming years and decades, we get the long term testing. So we didn’t know what cellphones would do to us in 1979, when they were invented. That came later, we didn’t know what Wi Fi would do to us, although we had some ideas, because by then the cell phone studies had started accumulating. And now Bluetooth is being deployed without any long term testing into its health effects. And so that’s just how this stuff is released to the market. People really, that’s one of the points, I would really like your listeners to take home from this, this stuff just because they’re selling it, it does not mean it is safe. They release this technology without any long term testing into the health effects. The studies come later.
Loren Cellentani 13:22
And what are some of the study? I mean, I know there’s a lot what are some? I guess if you could do a brief overview what what it research is out there right now for the
R Blank 13:31
health? Sure. So yeah, as you know, there is a lot depending on how you count it, there’s 1000s of studies, or 10s, of 1000s of studies into this question, and what’s interesting and what people may not appreciate, right? Because, you know, when you think to the extent that people think of this stuff, they’ll think about oh, is our cellphones dangerous? Do they cause brain tumors? And that’s a really concerning health outcome. It’s kind of terrifying. We all want to avoid brain tumors. But what people what I would like people to understand is, there are a wide range of negative health outcomes linked to cellphone use to Wi Fi exposure to power lines. What the science is showing is that the we see these negative health outcomes in almost every different system in our body. So for instance, yes, brain tumors, but there’s science about thyroid cancer, and there’s science about colorectal cancer from people carrying their phones in their pockets. There’s very strong science in infertility, particularly in men, again, particularly in those who carry phones in their pockets or use laptops in their labs. There is science about increased rate risk of miscarriage. There’s science about increased rates of asthma in children who Mothers were exposed to high levels of EMF in utero when the child was in utero, we see studies into sleep disruption, anxiety, leakage of the blood brain barrier, which its, you know, a lot of people might not have heard of, but it’s a it’s a very important shield that helps protect your body from from viruses and pollution. There’s study, there’s a lot of science into the effects on DNA, that exposure to cordless phones, cell phone radiation can damage and destroy DNA leading to mutations or cell death. So we’re seeing these health negative health effects. And by the way, I want to be clear the science that I’m citing, and I’m not citing individual studies, because that would be boring for people. But they can obviously learn a lot on my website, where we do link to this stuff, the science that I’m citing his high quality, peer reviewed science, this is it, I just want to underscore and this is part of what I was saying, what hit me, when I was writing overpower with my father, the science is really strong. And as I say, it impacts all of these different systems. And it’s not just humans. There’s extensive science into the effects on this type of radiation on bees. And its possible contribution to Colony Collapse Disorder. There’s science, in terms of birds, and disruption of migratory patterns, which leads to to, to death. There’s science, even in sea turtles, because of under underwater radar for military installations, and what that does to sea turtles, their migratory patterns, their ability to reproduce. So and we see it in trees, and we see it in plants. The what people need to understand is that life you know, I know you talk about this a lot on your podcast, right in terms of energy. And when people talk about energy, it’s sometimes has a sort of, how would I say a spiritual bent to it, which, which it does. But what people need to understand is that we literally are beings of energy in scientific terms, the way our brains communicate with the different parts of our body that involves sending EMF signals, through our nervous system, the way we get signals back to our brain is with EMF, our entire body is controlled and regulated by EMF signals. And so when we’re introducing all of these foreign signals, with much higher power than our bodies are used to, there is a tremendous amount of potential for disruption of our biological systems, which is one reason I believe we see these negative health outcomes in so many different biological systems.
Loren Cellentani 17:56
Now, when you’re saying this, in my mind, I think I’m over general is generalizing right now. Is it because all these frequencies of EMF 5g, Wi Fi, Bluetooth, are basically in incoherent energies versus coherent energy? Is that? Is that kind of what’s overpowering our own? homeostasis, if you will?
R Blank 18:19
Sure. So if I can step back a little bit to answer the question. Yeah. So as I said before, EMF stands for electromagnetic field. It’s a form of energy, it’s created by a combination of electrical and magnetic forces. And there’s a spectrum of EMF, there’s different kinds right in the middle of that spectrum is visible light, like we get from the sun. And then there’s forms of EMF that have more energy than sunlight. Those are called ionizing because they have so much energy that can knock electrons loose from cells. These include things like X rays, and gamma rays. These are known, universally accepted to be incredibly dangerous, even in incredibly small doses. Which is why when you go to the dentist to get an x ray, they cover you in lead and leave the room while they do it. Right, because that stuff is super dangerous. So then, again, that was more energy than visible light, then there’s a whole set of EMF that has less energy than visible light. And that’s what we’re talking about here. So that includes things like radio waves, and microwaves. And what I think the way to understand it, is that for all of not only human evolution, but evolution of life on Earth, the only sources of EMF that we were exposed to and that other forms of life were exposed to, were basically sunlight and the earth own magnetic fields, which is very, very, very low energy and all of these other forms terms of EMF that you and I’ve been talking about. Those weren’t present for the entire history of human evolution and the evolution of life on Earth. And so these are foreign forces, we have not evolved to, to coexist, our bodies have not evolved to exist alongside these things. And that’s why they are so disruptive to to life. The the thing if you know, with EMF, it’s invisible, it’s odorless, you can’t see touch, smell, taste it. And so it’s easy for people not only to ignore, but to have no idea how much there is around them. If you could see EMF, you would realize that we are we are swimming in this massive sea of this stuff that didn’t even exist 150 years ago. And every year, there’s more and more and more of it. And it’s our bodies are not designed to cope with those exposures. And that’s why and also just by way of comparison, you know, I mentioned the body runs on EMF, we’re talking about really, really, really low power, versus these super high powered sources, like a cell phone has so much emits EMF with so much more power than your body uses. It’s not even comparable. So the way I would state it in a in a metaphor is imagine you and I are having a calm conversation. We’re just talking back and forth. And then a billion people start screaming gibberish, right around us. And we can no longer hear each other, we can no longer communicate with each other. That’s what these forces are doing to our body’s ability to communicate with itself and regulate itself.
Loren Cellentani 21:54
And I know from my own personal research, there was a lot that was coming out right as 5g, the past year, two years came out that it was I felt like it was almost implemented right in the middle of pandemic when people weren’t noticing all these souped up or new 5g cell towers for coming up. There’s a lot even though there’s, you know, we’re catching up science wise, but from what I’ve seen, there’s not a lot of great things that come with 5g other than faster internet in terms of exposure. What have you seen? What’s the difference between 5g and maybe 4g or 3g?
R Blank 22:35
Sure. So yeah, great question. So as a starting point, 5g, it stands for fifth generation, right? Just like 4g was the fourth generation. And that means of a cell phone network. So one G was created in 1979. I forget the exact dates, 2g was in the 80s. 3g was in the 90s, 4g in the in the 2000s, and so forth. And they each brought different sets of capabilities. Right so 3g, brought the mobile internet 4g brought a better mobile internet, 5g is supposed to bring these massive download speeds. So so that that’s just the starting point for what 5g means. What it actually is, is a different network. So they’ve actually redesigned the network and there’s several technical aspects about about how that works. Then, in terms of the EMF, you’ll recall, I mentioned you know, there’s different types of EMF 5g is designed to use a whole new set of frequencies that have never before been used in consumer applications. So that doesn’t these, I want to be clear the initial deployments are still using the same frequencies as 4g, but in the future 5g will change and expand to include these these additional frequencies that go up to what’s called millimeter wave because of because of how high energy they are, they’re the waves get shorter and that they’re called millimeter wave. So, one reason people are worried about 5g is because this is not these these forms of EMF are not have not been studied. You know, because there is now decades of science into cell phones, but that was based on on the energy the the energy waves that were used by those generations of cell phones. The the new 5g frequencies have not been studied. They are actually I said they’re not used in consumer applications. They there is one actual use that we know of which is they’re used in military grade weaponry. So these these frequencies can be weaponized to to inflict pain, discomfort and disable, for instance, rioters or crowds you can direct this energy If people and that’s I know it sounds a little weird to say that’s that’s real, you can, you can look that up. So, so the frequencies, right that you’re exposing a whole bunch of humanity to a whole set of new frequencies that have not been tested in terms of not even their long term effects, there’s short term health effects. There’s, in addition, because I mentioned 5g uses these higher energy waves, they don’t travel as far, which means you’re going to have an infrastructure that’s much more dense. So you’re gonna have 5g antennas, if you live in a city, on every block, and you might not recognize them, because they look a lot different than 4g towers. So they might be on top of a traffic light, they might be on top of a stop sign, they might be on top of a lamppost. They’re theirs. They’re called small cells, because they, they’re small, and they can just kind of hide in the environment, but there’s going to be a lot more of them.
R Blank 26:02
But here’s the part about 5g That worries me the most. And it’s, it’s to me, it’s not the frequencies. I agree, those aren’t tested. But you know, what we know from the past is, is, it’s not good. Because there hasn’t been we haven’t found a set of frequencies that’s safe. We see different health effects it you know, from all of these, the part that worries me is the fact is 5g was designed from the ground up to support a much bigger internet, right. So it’s being sold to people as a faster internet. But as we talked about earlier, all of these different things are popping up that are smart, you have smart TVs, smart speakers, smart fridges, smart thermostats, you have smart cars that require a tremendous amount of data, you have the smart utility grid, there’s everything that’s becoming smart. And the 4g network was becoming jammed. And so 5g was designed from the ground up not only to power, a faster internet, but a much bigger internet. And that paves the way for more and more and more things in our lives, especially when we’re out and about to be smart to become new sources of EMF. And what 5g is doing is setting the path for a multiple orders of magnitude increase in the number of exposures that we have. And that’s the part of 5g that really worries me. Because it’s just being again, it’s being done without any long term testing. And we know there is a dose response relationship in terms of EMF and our health effects. So, you know, this will be the last point in this answer here. But this is important, right? So a dose response relationship is the more of something you have the more of the result, you see. So when it comes to, for instance, drinking alcohol, the more alcohol you drink, the more deviated you become. That’s a dose response relationship. With EMF, the science is clear that there is a dose response relationship, the more EMF you’re exposed to, the greater your health risks. And this order multiple order of magnitude explosion in the number of sources in our environment, is going to lead to corresponding significant increases in all of our exposures. And that’s, that’s the part of 5g that, that I think people just aren’t talking about enough.
Loren Cellentani 28:35
Yeah, for me, I don’t know anything about this. Barely little topics about Web 3.0. Like how that the next evolution of like, the internet, and having all these different things communicate within the internet, like the experience itself is going to become all encompassing, if you will, that’s what made me think of is shifting into that environment. But also, you know, I feel like yes, we can try to protect ourselves. But is there a way to create this technology in a cleaner way? Like, you know, fossil fuels versus green energy?
R Blank 29:13
Yeah, I believe, well, there’s definitely safer ways to build this stuff. So, and there’s lots of different examples. So for example, you know, there’s a, there’s a baby monitor that was made in China, I don’t know if it still is, I believe it was called the baby safe baby monitor, right? Because baby monitors are wireless. They’re a source of EMF, and, and babies are more vulnerable to damage from these exposures than we are about baby monitors that a lot of real value to people. So what baby safe did is they created a monitor that doesn’t transmit unless it hears something. Right. So when it hears something, then it’ll send out the signal. But when it’s not hearing anything, it’s not constantly reading Eating these, these forces in the room where the baby is located. That’s one example of right away something that is much, much safer than the standard version of that product. There is a company in the Netherlands, that makes a low powered Wi Fi router, right? Because the best solution is to get rid of Wi Fi and use Ethernet in your house. But I deal with regular consumers all the time, that’s not a step that a lot of people are willing to take. And so what this company did was create a Wi Fi router that emits 90%, less EMF radiation than other Wi Fi routers. And I didn’t get into the code, but he He does it by rewriting the code and, and changing the way the signal operates. And, you know, that’s an that right there. That’s an example of you know, he, he just cut the power by 90% by rewriting the code. And you know, the company didn’t do that, because the company isn’t compelled to do that by regulations. So there are definitely ways that this stuff could be made safer. I am not an electrical engineer. I don’t know the ins and outs of every product. But there are definitely ways where all of these products could be designed much, much more safely from the perspective of EMF exposure, and they’re just not being compelled. They’re not going to do it voluntarily. They’re and they’re not being compelled to by regulations. And that’s where the disconnect is. But yes, this stuff could definitely be much more safe. I would also advocate that we don’t need as much of it. Like I said earlier, the smart tampon is a product I think the world could do without.
Loren Cellentani 31:45
Yeah, I would think I would not want radiation down there.
R Blank 31:48
Yeah. That’s a very sensitive area
Loren Cellentani 31:53
for infertility. Anyway, I definitely digress on that. Yeah, for me, I think about the food industry, if you will, whether you know buying organic, and just because it’s organic, you can buy organic Oreos, but follow the money. People you know, so pay vote with your dollar. And that makes me hopeful because, you know, I get ended this EMF 5g things, and I can be I can feel a little down. I’m not gonna lie about the overwhelming you know that I feel like sometimes I don’t have a voice. I don’t I can’t control it. But you can vote with your dollar, you know, what you put in your own house? Yes. distancing yourself, you know, using products like shield your body provides. That’s what I do with food. You know, we you know, we try to shop local, organic when we can less processed food, no GMO at the very least non GMO but yeah, so we’ve talked about the distancing. Other than Can we talk a little bit briefly about the other types of products you guys offer. We talked briefly about the ear tubes instead of them wireless earphones. But what are different solutions you guys offer that people might be interested in after being like, oh my gosh, I can’t avoid
R Blank 33:06
any of that. So so my products fall into a couple of different categories. There are electronics accessories, so I mentioned the phone pouch, that is a very popular product. And that makes it safer to carry your phone. Be by I’m sorry, I forgot we were going to be on camera. I didn’t bring my phone pouch next to my desk, but you put your phone in the phone pouch, the back is shielded and the front isn’t. So that means when you’re carrying your phone in your pocket or on your belt, it deflects the radiation away from your body while while still allowing your phone to function. We talked about the air tube headsets, those don’t use wire they use air in a silicone tube. So the wire would normally conduct some of this radiation from your phone up to your ear using an air tube makes that safer. I mentioned the laptop pad that’s a shield. Again, you know you should not use your laptop on your lap. But there are people who still do and if you do the laptop pad is a shield that goes under your laptop to deflect the radiation away from from your lap and body. So those are products like I said that are electronics accessories. I also have a sling bag, which is like a small backpack. So that’s big, you know for if you’re carrying let’s say not just your phone, but your iPad or your Kindle or your Nintendo Switch or whatever it is that would fit in there and again, the back is shielded the front isn’t so it deflects radiation away from your body. Then I have a growing catalogue of apparel products and apparel is great because it’s a great way to protect the electronics accessories are good for protect yourself from sources that are in your control, right? I mentioned the phone that you’re carrying or the laptop that you’re using. But there’s a whole bunch of exposures out in the world as you go out and about your day. And those sources aren’t in your control. It’s not your phone, it’s the cell tower. It’s not your computer, it’s the 30 Wi Fi networks that are in the area. And so you know, we have a hat, we have men’s underwear, we have a very nice silk bandana, we have a neck gator, which is like a neck tube that can be worn like a scarf or a hat. And all of these are great because they can help protect you from exposures that aren’t in your control. Last year, we introduced a bed canopy, which is a great way to to create a shielded space for you to sleep in all, so protects you it’s very high grade, it protects you all night long, which is not only a significant chunk of your day, it’s also a very important part of your day, because it’s when your body is supposed to be resting and rejuvenating. And if there’s a bunch of exposures, right, let’s say you live in an apartment building, or you live in a house and there’s a bunch of cell towers nearby, you can’t turn them off at night like you can your own Wi Fi network. So that’s why the bed canopy. That’s why we have the bed canopy, it creates a shielded space for you to rest, relax and rejuvenate. So right now we have about two dozen products. And we’re constantly working to add more, I’ll mention actually our newest product, it’s on pre order, we’re going to start by the time this episode airs, this will be shipping. And it’s the it’s a wristband, and you know, I strongly advise people not to use smartwatches, but a lot of people still do. So the wristband is designed to be worn under a smartwatch and deflect the radiation away from your body. So these are the types of products, I will say all of my products are laboratory tested. So all of the claims that I make are backed up by real science and real test data. We also have videos showing how you can verify this for yourself with meters. Because I know you know when it comes to EMF protection, there’s a lot of different options out there. Not everyone is selling products that are based in science and have demonstrable claims and laboratory testing to support those claims. You know, in large part because, you know, this company is built to carry forward my father’s legacy. And he was a real scientist, you know, we are basing all of our products on real science. And so that is one of the keys that differentiates us. Why be
Loren Cellentani 37:41
awesome, awesome. Definitely I don’t have a smartwatch, but I know a few people I’m going to be ordering. For that reason. Intuitively. I was like, Yeah, I don’t want to be wearing technology even more than I already am. But um, yeah, thank you so much for coming on the show today was very informational. But more on the storing people is you can if you can protect yourself in your home and also like products will shield your body when you’re out and about with a apparel and I’m sure more and more products through shield your body and other companies will be coming out with as 5g rolling out. I think I hope people are gonna start to wake up to this.

Yeah, no, I mean, it’s happening. It’s just a slow process. You know, there’s a, as I said, EMF is invisible, odorless, tasteless, you can’t can’t sense it. Unless you’re one of these people that that is very sensitive to the to the forces. And it comes from all of these products that we love, and we want to love, we love our devices, we love the experiences. So there’s this, there’s this innate kind of desire to not even want to hear it. So it’s a it’s a slow process. But it is definitely changing. Every year, more and more people are aware, more and more people are worried and more and more people are taking action. Because that is one of the key messages I would like people to take away from this, even as the exposures keep growing. It is what you do with the technology that is closest to you that can have the greatest impact on your personal exposure and your personal health risk.
Loren Cellentani 39:18
Awesome. Thank you. So that was perfect timing. Thank you so much for you know, not only coming here today, but the work that you do. You know, like you said, you’re spreading the good word, if you will. People need to learn about this stuff. It’s you can’t smell it, taste it or see it. So how are we going to know so thank you so much for coming on the show and we end every show the same way. How may we the listeners as an act of gratitude be of service for you today?
R Blank 39:48
Well, that’s a great question. First time anyone’s ever asked me anything like that on a podcast interview. So I appreciate it. I would ask everyone listening to try to just be a little bit more mindful. in their relationship with technology, that doesn’t mean giving up technology, I hope that’s come across from what I’ve been talking about. But it does mean maybe using it a little bit less and using it a little bit more safely. So rather than talk in broad terms I’m getting, here’s the specific request I have for people stop carrying your phone in your pocket or your bra, that one change is going to make a huge difference in your personal exposure, these cell phones are very, very high powered devices. And when they’re carried in your pocket or, or your bra, you’re getting a full dose of that exposure in a very sensitive part of your body. And you generally do it for extended periods of time, hours. And so just that’s the one request is for people to stop carrying your cell phone in your pocket or your bra. You know, and if then if you’re motivated, and you’d like that change, I’d encourage you to download the free ebook that I have posted at shield your body comm slash slash witchy wellness. So that shield your body, all one word, comm slash witchy wellness. And right there at the top of the page, there’s a you know, get the free guide, download that guide that has the top five ways that you can make a big difference in your personal exposure and it also explains why those are the top five. So you know, just remember even though EMF is harmful, and even though we’re all exposed to it all of the time. It’s what you do with the technology that’s closest to you that has the biggest impact on your personal health risks. So you are in control.
