You may not realize just how many electromagnetic signals pass through your body every day. It’s not really known if there are health effects from these signals or not, but I find it very interesting to see how much they have increased in the last decade. Just looking at cellular towers, in 2010 there were 250,000 and today there are 350,000 towers in the U.S., and this number will increase to over one million in the coming few years to support 5g technology.
So, what do these signals look like to our body? The human body has an electrical frequency that it likes to operate within and this matches the natural frequency of the earth. The earth and its atmosphere vibrate at the fundamental frequency of 7.83Hz. If you encounter signals at harmonic frequencies with the earth, it amplifies the impact of the signal.
What is a harmonic frequency? It is a signal that has peaks and valleys that overlap the peaks and valleys of the fundamental frequency. The harmonic frequencies of earth and the human body are known as the Schuman Resonance and are 14.3, 20.8, 27.3 and 33.8 Hz. Our electric grid in the U.S. operates at a frequency of 60Hz, which falls outside the natural harmonic range.
We create signals every day that impact the natural resonance of earth and this is a good thing. We would not want to match the resonant frequencies, as it would cause some dangerous situations. Let me give you an example. Have you ever seen videos where an opera singer breaks a glass with their voice? This happens because their voice matches the resonant frequency of the glass, causing vibrations in the glass to build on each other and eventually vibrating the glass apart. Imagine what might happen if we produced enough vibrations at resonant frequencies of the earth. Would it be possible to shatter the planet? Let’s hope we never find out.
So, is it a bad thing to be impacted by non-resonant frequencies as well? There is another frequency interaction called the damping frequencies. This is a frequency that can cause vibrations to decrease in amplitude. We use these damping techniques to create things like noise canceling head phones and engine mufflers. If you can create a damping frequency at the same amplitude as the resonance frequency of an object, you can completely stop all natural vibrations.
This means that it is possible to stop or amplify the natural frequency vibration of your body by exposure to radio waves. We know that increasing this vibration by applying resonant frequency harmonics can cause damage, but we don’t really know if stopping the vibration can cause damage or not.
It just so happens that our cellular phones operate in the 800-megahertz range, which just happens to be very close to the 800.8-megahertz harmonic frequency of our bodies. So every time our cell phone sends a message, we make a call or we upload a video or picture, we amplify the natural vibrations of our body. Granted it is by a tiny amount, but is there an impact to our health? There are a few studies that indicate extreme exposure to these frequencies can cause mental health issues.
Although most of these studies have been dismissed as having no basis in science, there is still a question of how these magnetic fields impact our well-being, and much research is continuing to better understand the impacts. If you want to see the radio signals around you, there is an application for your cell phone that monitors electromagnetic signals. There are several out there; if you search for EMF Meter, you will find a wide range of them. Some claim to be “ghost” hunters, but really they just measure the amount of electrical energy in the air around you. My favorite is the EMF Radiation Meter by IS Solution, though it has quite a few ads. There is also a paid application for $2.99 that provides a map of where the radio signal is coming from called “Architecture of Radio.” If you are interested in studying the radio signals, it is worth the price.
