Sick Building Syndrome: Is Your Workplace Healthy?

“Sick Building Syndrome” is a term that has been around for a few decades to explain how and why people are affected by their buildings. As a building biologist, I am frequently assessing the health of buildings (whether they are sick or not) and how they may impact upon the health of the occupants – […]

Lyn McLean – An Interview

Lyn McLean I first met Lyn McLean when I was reaching out to find speakers for the 2015 Environmental Sensitivities Symposium. I had read her book, The Force and was impressed with her knowledge and expression, and just knew she would contribute something amazing to the Symposium. When we first talked, I was taken with her […]

Home is the Most Important Place

Home is the most important place. It is our castle.  Home is our safety haven, our sacred space, our island in the midst of the world. For many of us, the world can be a bit full-on. The onslaught of fragrances, noise, wi-fi, people, lights… it can be overwhelming at times. Also, most of these […]

ELF AC Magnetic Fields

Magnetic Fields Did you know? In 2002, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified ELF AC magnetic fields as category 2B. What that means is that they recognised the potentially carcinogenic effects for humans (risk of causing cancer) of the magnetic fields associated with household wiring, appliances, and power lines. These fields are one […]

Sleep Like a Rock – Deal with the Clock

Did you know your sleep can be hampered by your alarm clock? Many people place their electric alarm clocks right next to their heads. This can expose them to very high levels of ELF AC electric fields and magnetic fields. “I’m right, I use my phone!” Well then, in that case, you are likely to […]

SAR Levels Can be Increased by Having Metal Objects in Your Pocket

SAR levels are what the authorities use to determine the safety of a mobile/cell phone. Although, logically, the system is a flawed one*, the levels can increase dramatically – something that has not been taken into consideration by the decision-makers. SAR Levels Can be Increased by Having Metal Objects in Your Pocket Did you know […]

How is Your Wi-Fi Router Like Your Oven?

Wi-Fi – we are surrounded by wi-fi all the time. But there is something that you can do that can significantly minimise your exposure… and it is free! Why would you want to? There are risks associated with using this technology. This is “radiofrequency EMF” and has been classified by the International Agency for Research on […]

Electric Fields – the Importance of Measuring Them

Electric Fields – VITAL to measure Electric fields are an important part of an EMF audit. In an nutshell, extremely low frequency (ELF) AC electric fields are present where there is any household wiring or any appliances plugged in. They exist where there is a potential. You can read more about the science behind ELF AC electric […]
