Electromagnetic fields make domestic animals sick. How to protect them

Electromagnetism is a branch of physics that studies the interaction between electric and magnetic fields. These fields are present throughout our environment, both naturally and artificially. Natural sources of electromagnetic fields include sunlight, the Earth, and thunderstorms. Man-made sources include power lines, electronic appliances, and wireless devices.

Health Effects:

In recent years, there has been growing concern about the possible effects of electromagnetism on the health of domestic animals. Some studies have shown that exposure to electromagnetic fields can cause a variety of health problems in animals, such as:

Cancer:

  • A Swedish study found that dogs living near high-voltage power lines had a higher risk of developing lymphoma.
  • A study from the University of California at Davis found that cats Those who lived in homes with high levels of low-frequency electromagnetic fields had a higher risk of developing leukemia.

Neurological problems:

  • A study from the University of Bristol found that dogs that were exposed to radio frequency electromagnetic fields were more likely to show signs of anxiety and compulsive behavior.
  • A study from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences found that rats that were exposed to low-frequency electromagnetic fields were more likely to develop learning and memory problems.

Reproductive problems:

  • A University of Minnesota study found that cows that were exposed to low-frequency electromagnetic fields were more likely to have spontaneous abortions.
  • A study from the University of Turin found that mice that were exposed to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields had lower fertility.

Development Issues:

  • A study from the University of Washington found that chicks that were exposed to low-frequency electromagnetic fields were more likely to have skeletal deformities.
  • A study from the Karolinska Institute found that children who were exposed to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields in the womb were more likely to have neurodevelopmental problems.

It is important to note that research into the effects of electromagnetism on animal health is still ongoing. Not all studies have found a link between exposure to electromagnetic fields and health problems. More research is needed to determine if there is a real health risk to pets.

Tips to protect pets from electromagnetic fields:

Reduce exposure:

  • Keep pets away from sources of strong EMF, such as power lines, transformers and broadcast towers.
  • Limit the use of electronic devices around pets.
  • Use wireless devices sparingly and keep pets away from them when in use.
  • Unplug electronic devices when not in use.
  • Turn off Wi-Fi at night.
  • Use Ethernet cables instead of Wi-Fi when possible.
  • Consider using shields against electromagnetic radiation for your pets.

Create a safe environment:

  • Provide your pet with a sleeping place away from sources of EMF.
  • Use building materials that block EMF at home.
  • Plant trees and shrubs around your home to help block EMFs.

Specific examples:

  • A well-documented case of health damage from electromagnetism in domestic animals is that of the dog "Bailey." Bailey was a Golden Retriever who developed aggressive lymphoma after living for several years near a high-voltage power line. Bailey's owners sued the power company and won the case.
  • Another example is a group of cats that developed leukemia after living in a home with high levels of low-frequency electromagnetic fields. The cats were relocated to a home with lower levels of electromagnetic fields and their health improved significantly.

Conclusion:

Although research into the health effects of electromagnetism on animals is still ongoing, there is evidence to suggest that exposure to electromagnetic fields can cause a variety of health problems in domestic animals. It is important to take steps to reduce the exposure of pets to electromagnetic fields.
