Good WIFI and Bad WIFI

posted Nov 20, 2017, 11:50 PM by Amir Borenstein, No Rad   [ updated Nov 21, 2017, 1:13 PM ]

Q - Hi Amir,
Hope you are doing fantastically well.
Just wanted to say thank you for all your help.
The Gabba is really helping me and so are the emf cloths i have been using while traveling.
I have one quick question for you...
The last three places I lived had wifi and it didn't bother me.
Currently, where I'm at.. It really does.
Is there a bandwidth/setting that is less powerful than others .... And that could be the reason why?
I don't have the option of going wired....
I truly appreciate your help.
Best,

L. ;)
USA 21/11/2017)

A - Hello L.
In order to understand why you react to one house with WIFI and not to another house with WIFI, you need to try and understand what systems are deployed and installed in these houses.
For example, there are WIFI routers with only 2.4GHz band, and others with both 2.4 and 5GHz bands.
For example, there are WIFI routers with external antennas that have more "strength" and routers with internal antennas.
It is possible that in one house there are "WIFI extenders" deployed, and an other house with only one router.
It is possible that in one house you have a WIFI device next to you and in another house the closest WIFI device is far a way.
Use your RF meter to search the house for WIFI devices and other wireless/cellular devices in order to tray and understand why you react in one house and not in the other.
In addition, going wired should be your primary priority. 
If you have not choice but to use WIFI, try to use an external WIFI network card with an 5-10 meter powered USB cable, and more the device away from you
Like this:

All the best

Good and bad grounding

posted Mar 10, 2017, 1:51 PM by Amir Borenstein, No Rad

Question - How to create a good grounding system for all my protection? 
Is it OK to use the electric ground?

Answer - I recommend not to use the electric ground on the electric socket, but to a special pole outside.
It usually have some micro currents on it. If you connect your grounding to it, the currents might end up on your protection. If you touch it, the currents might find their way onto your skin and nerves system. 

I recommend to use a grounding pole and insert it to the real ground on your back yard.
If possible make sure the dirt there is always wet. Then connect your grounding system and protection to this pole. Make sure you follow the following Best practices.

Best practice for grounding:
1. Make the grounding cords as short as possible.
2. Have as less as possible connections points between the protection to the pole.
3. Make sure the connections are as strong as possible (lots of contact).
4. The impedance should be as low as possible (lower then 1 Ohm is recommended).
5. Ground all connection to a grounding pole on the yard.
6. Don't connect to the house electric ground.

Smartwatch makes me feel bad

posted Jan 28, 2017, 2:33 PM by Amir Borenstein, No Rad

Q - Hello - I brought a 3G enabled smartwatch which I could place my phones SIM card inside. It was an Android 4.0 smartwatch. Within 1 day I felt a heat through my wrist - even thought the watch was cold and with the screen off most of the time. By day 2 I had to take it off as I felt as if I had sunburn right through my wrist and it took 3 days for the discomfort to go. I made a disk 6 layers thick of tin foil and put that under the watch and wore it again and it was fine. Has anyone attempted to measure the radio frequency radiation of these 3G enabled smartwatches comiing out of China? Do you sell any shielding for smartwatches? Many thanks.


A - Hello
My recommendation is to stop using the watch.
smart watch, with or without 3G inside , emit RF radiation. 
There is no shielding for that, just stop using it.
Please see:
I hope this info helps.
Thanks and best regards



Which cell phone do you use, and what is SAR?

posted Jan 13, 2017, 8:58 AM by Amir Borenstein, No Rad   [ updated Jan 13, 2017, 9:07 AM ]

Q- Which cell phone do you use, and what is SAR?

AHello
1. I don't use a cellphone on a daily basis. I do have an old 3G (UMTS/WCDMA) phone for emergencies which I use once or twice a month (with air tube earpiece) and a car phone with the antenna on the external side of the wind shield.
The reason is that every cellphone, even "low" SAR phones, emits RF and ELF levels that are too much for me and cause me pain after few seconds.
2. SAR is a measurement Technics that servers the need of the wireless industries to show as if the phones are tested and found to be safe. In reality it is based only on thermal damage and is not relevant to any biological damage what so ever. 
3. a phone with low SAR level, with not necessary radiates less then a phone with high SAR level
4. There are other parameters that effect the levels of emission from each phone in each and every situation, such as: reception, setting of the phone, way of using it, technical parameters and other variables.

Are CRT worse than LCD or LED?

posted Oct 15, 2016, 11:06 AM by Amir Borenstein, No Rad   [ updated Oct 15, 2016, 11:56 AM ]

Q - Hi "NoRad"

I'm interested in your view of CRT TV sets. Is the radiation from those, compare to a LCD display, worse?

I've read of people that don´t feel bad from CRT but do feel from LCD, even though the CRT naturally uses higher power.

Do you have any experience in this?

Thanks


A - Hello

Yes, CRT have much more ELF magnetic and electric fields than LCD display.
In addition you can even find LCD/LED displays with external power supply, making the ELF emission even lower.
Some people might be OK with CRT (from some distance) but feel bad from LCD or LED display because of one of the following reasons:
1. Blue light emitted from the screen (fix - change the color scheme so there will be less blue light).
2. Mid frequency EMF emitted from the screen (fix - use a LCD/LED screen protection).
3. RF radiation emitted from the screen in case it is wireless (fix - test before buy, make sure your screen is not wireless, or find a way to turn off the wireless functions).
4. Dirty Electricity created by the screen (fix - use DR filters) 
5. Light flicker (fix set brightness to 100% in LED screen)
I hope this cover all.
All the best

ELF Magnetic Field Protection

posted Jun 21, 2016, 3:58 PM by Amir Borenstein, No Rad

Q - We live by large power lines. Is there something I can buy to re-direct the magnetic field away from our house?

A - Hello 
If I was you I would get and EMF meter to map the house and find out if there is a problem and what is the source.
In addition to an outside power line, ELF magnetic field can be generated by bad wiring, grounding problems, electric equipment and so on.
After knowing what the source is we can try to reduce exposure.
In case that the ELF magnetic field is coming from the street -outside, there is very little that can be done.
You can change the placement of furniture so that people will be less exposed.
Please see more info on my info site:
I hope this info helps.
Thanks and best regards

How to find a low EMF, EHS friendly holiday accommodation?

posted Apr 27, 2016, 11:52 PM by Amir Borenstein, No Rad   [ updated Oct 1, 2016, 1:21 AM ]

Q - Hi, I'm ehs and I am desperately trying to find a holiday accommodation with no WiFi. There doesn't seem to be any website offering this service. Apart from the Victoria refuge site which has 6 listing's all in Vic it tas. There must be many places available but all list 'free wifi'. I wish people would get over the WiFi thing. Any help would be very appreciated. Sincerely 
L - Australia

A - Hello
I am also an EHS person.
I have no info about a data base for EHS friendly hotels.
I can't sustain high levels, and try to be in levels that are lower than 0.005mW/m2 (if possible even less than 0.0005mW/m2).
When I travel, I take with me the EMF meter (CORNET ED78 or ED88T are recommended) and some cheap temp RF Protection (like Mylar). 
I search for a place that has no view to a cellphone tower, no cellular towers on top or around. I use google street view , and local cellular tower maps to search for it. 
Then I call the place and ask them if they have WIFI and where the routers are placed (routers are  in the rooms or just at the lobby). I also ask if there are micro cellular antennas in the corridor.
 If possible I ask if there is a vacancy to a room as far as possible from the nearest router, access point or cellular micro cell antenna. 
I get to the place, and test for radiation. I use the mylar protection if needed. 
If all good I recommend to others.
In addition I looked at tripadvisor and there seems to be some people that report EHS/EMF issues in hotels they visit, like this one -https://www.tripadvisor.com/members/trevmar
I think it is a great idea, I hope many more will follow.

For example this is club in hotel in Eilat , Israel (wifi only at the reception), some of the inear rooms are out of site of cellphone mast - https://youtu.be/kW9LZq-Rc9A

An other example is the Dor beach resort, in Israel (wifi in the reception), cellphone must in the distance, some parts of the beach have very little RF. - https://youtu.be/ZveDW0kKFSs

WADI ROSH PINA - in the northern part of Israel has very low RF levels after you tern the WIFI off.



In addition please see this site with hotels without WIFI (which is only one of the requirements) -

I hope this info helps.

Please advise on clothing I can get to help mask the radiation

posted Apr 2, 2016, 1:31 AM by Amir Borenstein, No Rad   [ updated Apr 2, 2016, 1:32 AM ]

Q -" Hi ,
 i'm extremely radiation sensitive, have battled autoimmune illnesses for years, suddenly realized they all started when I started using computers.Neon lights have always affected me.
I've hugely cut down on my cellphone and computer usage, cut out the TV (and my illnesses have improved), but there is wifi everywhere, even on buses in the UK.
I can't spend too long trawling through your very comprehensive site as it's making me feel ill, so please can you advise me on which clothing items I should get to help mask the radiation I can't avoid?
And please can you comment on the lead-lined clothing used by XRay professionals? I have to use my laptop a little bit for banking etc. At present I'm using a shield I made out of tinfoil, I don't know if it helps at al., perhaps a little.
I have in the past bought supposedly EMR blocking devices from 0000000 but they didn't work at all so I sent them back.
I'm currently trying to find accommodation with no wifi but it's very difficult, and something that protects me would obviously be good.
Kind regards"

AHello and thanks for your email.
I would suggest to do the following:
1. Watch my original video lectures, they are not long, and it might be easier to watch than to read the text- http://www.norad4u.com/videos/video-lectures
2. If you don't have an EMF meter yet, get one, I recommend the New CORNET ED88T. It will allow you to measure the RF/ELF-magnetic and EMF electric levels in your house, find RF sources and remove then , find ELF sources and keep safety distance from them, find RF penetration points and us RF protection to block them. 
3. RF Protection Clothes - This is the link to our product line - http://www.4ehsbyehs.com/protection-clothes
 I suggest to start with a hat or lining - http://www.4ehsbyehs.com/protection-clothes/rf-protection-hat
4. PC arrangement - make sure your computer is completely wired. arrange it in such a way that the computer, modem, router and other parts are as far as possible away from you. Use a wired keyboard, mouse and screen (if possible with an external power supply). For the screen you can use our cheap screen protection - http://www.4ehsbyehs.com/rf-protection/LED-LCD-screen-protection-film
5. Step by step - do the steps above and try to see if there is an improvement after each step.
6.  lead-lined clothing - will not work for RF or ELF.
For more info please see the "4 step program" - http://www.norad4u.com/4-steps-program
I hope this info helps.

Q - The most inexpensive way to shield my house, is there some kind a Program with waves that can shield a whole area 

A - Hello 
There is not cheap or easy way to protect your home.
First you need to get an EMF meter and use it.
Find the RF sources in side your house and remove them . 
Find safety distances from ELF sources. 
Find penetration points from outside the house and use the right RF protection to block it.

Do you know anything about Tinnitus?

posted Mar 26, 2016, 3:28 PM by Amir Borenstein, No Rad   [ updated Mar 28, 2016, 1:26 PM ]

Answer: 
I am not a doctor , these are just guesses .
Tinnitus are a common symptom of EHS people.
I also suffer from it.
There are several types, I think those which are related to EHS or EMF are more of a sensitivity of the inner hear issue.
There is the high pitch noise, the law pitch noise and the supper hearing issues. 
I think the higher pitch noise is caused by ELF exposure, the low pitch noise from RF exposure and the supper hearing is cause because of an inflammatory situation in the inner heat because of exposure to EMF in general.
If the tinnitus keeps me from sleeping I put some music on , or turn the fan or AC on. Other sounds makes it less noticeable. Other than that I try to be as less exposed as possible.
all the best
