EHS Character on Israeli TV Series for kids and yought

New Israel cable youth TV series named "Eilat" has a EHS (Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity) caracter.
The show will air today on "HOT VOD YOUNG". 
The character is named "carny shahar"  and being act by Mica Zur. She is presented as the only child in Israel that is sick with a rare disease that cause here to be insulated from any kind of radiation and electric. She lives with her family in a remote farm in the Eilat mountains. The character is explained to be  the only child in Israel without a smartphone and to be "left behind". 

This is only a TV show for kids, and most likely the presentation of EHS will not be the best, but in this stage I guess any publicity is a good publicity. This show might lead to more people understanding they are EHS and for wired acknowledgment of the condition by kids and parents.

Info in Hebrew:

3 campaigns, about health and privacy, from the governments of israel that are long overdue

A new campaign about "privacy" was launched by the "authority of privacy protection" in the ministry of Justice in Israel. The campaign seems to tray and bring awareness to the privacy issues in using a smartphone and network devices.

The following video is in Hebrew and describes how personal info is shared by a person on the web using her smartphone, and also harvested from the smart phone without knowingly sharing it. Then the person get advertising messages and offers according to here use and info.

The new Privacy commercial: https://youtu.be/uP4bv0maXyU


I think that the new campaign is a step in the right way and hope it will make a difference.
Few months ago the ministry of health launched a campaign about healthy and unhealthy food, but it was partially taken down (from TV commercials, still available on youtube) for being "too successful".

The video of the "healthy and not healthy food" about Sugar consumption.

The video of the "healthy and not healthy food" about Salt consumption. 





I Just hope that in the new future a new campaign like these 2 will be launched about radiation exposure from smart phones and wireless devices.

5G might radiate more than the non protective exposure standards.

A post in Lennart Hardell's blog about a presentation given by ericsson about the "challenge in meeting safety standards during 5G deployment".
In it's presentation (link in the post), ericsson gives an estimation of the radiation emission from 2 of it's infrastructure products (antenna), one at 3.5GHz, the other a 28GHz. 
Ericsson claim that the current ICNIRP (non protective, heat based, good for industry ) standards are going to make the deployment difficult. 
I am afraid that now the industry will put pressure to allow even less protective standards to comply with the need for faster, cheaper, easier deployment of 5G.
It is very sad that industry still think it can save money by exposing the public to more radiation, instead of developing their products and infrastructure in such a way that will reduce users and public's exposure.

The New ENV RD-10 EMF meter + videos

Few years back Yair from envirosense accepted a list of needs from me for a new meter. I wanted a new EMF meter that would be very easy to operate, will not cost much, will allow the use to "see" RFR/ ELF magnetic and ELF electric field, will have an alert mode and will be very very small so you can take it in your pocket.
In addition I said that it would be nice if you can also connect it to a PC and use with a monitoring program.
Yair added few features, for example the rechargeable battery, and started working on it.
The outcome is the RD-10 RF/ELFm/ELFe meter.
You can use it as an handheld EMF detector, or connect it to a PC or android for monitoring needs (using the cable and software application that comes with).
When I was given the second prototype for QA testing, I could not believe my eyes. It had all that I wanted and more. It was easy to use and "showed" the radiation. It was very fast and I could not feel it in my pocket. It allowed me to better identify EMF sources and people with smart phones (that emit RF most of the time) during the day. I found it also very good for explanations and demos as it is very easy to read, even if you are not an EMF profesional.

The meter is available on my store site  - http://www.4ehsbyehs.com/emr-meters/env-rd-10 , starting at US$139.9

Please see videos bellow:

I just saw "Generation Zapped" documentary, and I liked it!

Today I watched the "Generation Zapped" documentary, together with 3 other Activist/EHS people here in Israel.
It took us about 8 hours to watch the 74 minutes movie, as we paused and talked, changed views and added knowledge and information about the subjects that were brought up in the movie.
I like the wide view of the movie while also covering EHS.
I believe that EHS has a key role in the campaign of awareness for safer communication, better standards, acknowledgment of the risk, damage and of people who got hurt, as it prove that there is an  effect of EMF radiation, even in small levels.

I recommend to watch it.

A request to a representative action because of high ELF magnetic fields in Hybrid cars

According to YNET , Israeli leadling news site, a request to a representative action was filled to the court against the importers or KIA Niro and Hyundai Ioniq because of high ELF magnetic fields levels that were measured in the car. The Importers replay is "all within standards".

I tested several cars in the past and saw that high ELF magnetic fields appear in hybrid and no hybrid cars and that is best to test before you decide which on to buy.

RF Radiation from xBox game console

In the past I did several video about RF radiation emitted from PS3 and PS2.
I also did a video on "Wii" .
Now I have a new video on Xbox emitting RF radiation on standby mode.
This device emit RF radiation 24X7.
These devices are very often are kept in bedrooms of kids.
If you use it, I suggest to turn the WIFI off and disconnect it from power while not using.

New Polsing Radio Frequency Radiation in Israel - 02-05-2018

High levels of  Radio Frequency  Radiation pulsing  in Zichron Yaakov,  Israel, Coming from  the north or west (sea),  2-5-2018.
In this area the levels are usually  around  0.5-1  mW/m2, 044-0.62V/m. In the video you can see levels as high as 29mW/m2 (3.3V/m in the CORNET ED88T) and 36.3mW/m2(3.7V/m in the Acosticom AM-10 meter).
I am guessing this could be navy radars, some kind of measuring system, a ground-see missile defence system, or other.

Handing ELF issues in the home office

About 5 months ago we moved to a new house. The radiation levels here seemed to be even lower than the house I used to live in. RF bellow 0.0005mW/m2 and ELF-M bellow 1mG most of the time. And still since the move, I have been coping with headaches and symptoms when working in front of the PC in my working room. Every time I find and solve a new problem, I feel better. But then a new problem present itself, again and again.

I will try to describe the issues found and solved from today and back.

Today I solved (still need to see if I feel better in the next few days in order to be sure) a problem that caused my to feel sick with my stomach and to have brain fog after an house or two of working next to the PC (laptop with external keyboard and mouse, external screen, wired network) in my home office. The problem was that the laptop and the internet switch were too close to me. They were located on the floor next to my legs. Today I moved them to the other side of the room (as far away as possible from me) and also shortened and upgraded the network cable to CAT6.



A week a go I manage to find the source to headaches that I used to get after an hour or two of working on the laptop. It was a small onwall 3 to 1 power socket.  It was located about 60cm from me. The measurement showed only small Electric field next to it. I decided to remove it as a part of trial and error. I was looking for the cause of these headaches few weeks now and since I could not find it with the meter, I started doing some changed by chance, once every day, until I removed the socket and felt better few minutes later.


Two weeks ago, I finally solved (with the help of a professional electrician called Mani Segal)  a problem in the house electric grounding. The Neutral wire was connected to the ground wires and cause the currents I created in the house, to go on the ground wires to the neighbors.  I also learned that from all places I chose to sit above the ground wire. This lead me to change the sitting location inside the room and to relocate some of the equipment in the room. The fix of this issue was seen on the ELF magnetic measurements. Before the fix, If I was to turn ON an electric heavy duty appliance, say a oven, I was able to see a rise in the magnetic field as long as it was working.  No the rize is only for a small part of a second and then the field goes down again. This problem caused me to develop headaches 15-30 minutes of work in this room.  I knew about this problem before we moved, but I perspond the fix for weeks and months.



A month ago I installed (with the help of professional company called Dolev ) a ELF Magnetic field protection system on one of the walls of my home office. On the other side of this wall you can find the main electric cabinet of the house. The improvement after the fixed could be measured right away. The levels of ELF-M field were reduced (as long as no electric appliance was operating). As far as symptoms are concerned I felt an improvement, again as long as no electric appliance was turned ON.
For several days it seems that the symptoms become better but then I saw that not everyday, and not for all the day.
In this case as in others, I presponded the fix, until I was sure about it.



Few weeks back I relocated the laptop from on the table to bellow it. This trial and error move proved to improve the headaches I used to get after 10 minutes of work on the PC.




In few days I will completer the fix by installing a EMF protection wallpaper in order to absorb some of the reflections from the metallic ELF-Magnetic field protection.

Each and everyone of these steps was done while doing lots of measurements (before, during and after) of the radiation levels using my home use meters, and according to the knowledge and experience I gained while coping with EHS and while helping others.

In some cases I could not find the well power to do the fixes or steps. I was exhausted. But every time I tried to do small steps and eventually managed to completer and do major changes.

In some cases I did not know what is the cause for my symptoms. I just kept trying to do some measurements and did some steps and changing in the trial and error method. I just kept trying until one of the measurements show a clue, or one of the changes made me feel better.


What can we learn from all this:
1. Move the computer and it's equipment away as possible from you. Use a wired keyboard and mouse, a LCD/LED screen with an external power supply, use a wired network.
2.  Don't use electric socket splitters near you. Prefer the use of electric socket splitters with long cables and locate them as far as possible away from you.

3. Don't give up. Try to change and improve.  Maybe the next step will help.
4. Keep it simple - as less as possible electric appliances and computer equipment next to you. 
5. When you don't have a clue what is the cause of the symptoms , just pull out from the socket the electric and electronic devices , one at a time. 
6. Mental coping - Every time there is a problem, the mind start to think that this is it. "for that problem there is not solution". "We will not find the problem, and will not be able to fixed it", " I am doomed", " I can't do it anymore...". The way to cope with that is by during all the measurements, test, tril and errors, fixed, all in small achievable steps. to remember that after solving the issue we will not remember the hard time and suffering, but only the fix. We need to forget the suffering. At first it is not easy, but then you get accustomed to it and it becomes your second nature. 

I remind you that in this case all the problems were in the ELF fields from in house equipment and infrastructure. The house has no RF emitting devices in it, and the environment levels are mostly low.

City of Herzeliya deploy LED light with wireless RF technology



Few weeks back I went to Herzliya, were I used to live for about 7 years. On this visit I saw that the street lights on the street my old house stands, were upgraded to led lights. On top of the reflector I saw something that on first glance looked to me as a small RF antenna.
I looked it up tonight and it seems to be true.
I found a brochure from one of the manufacturer's noting that the communication was from one street light to the other and to a main controller in 2.4GHz:
Controllers use 2.4GHz wireless communication of the EEE.802.15.4 standards to communicate between each other"
Brochure - http://smartilighting.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/smarti-Street-Light-Controller.pdf
Site - http://smartilighting.com/street-light-controller/

I did not have the chance to test the RF radiation from these poles. I don't know if they radiate all the time, once in few seconds, minutes or hours.

On the site of Herzeliya Moniciple, I found more info (the original is in Hebrew, here is my translation):
"A remot Control and command system that will allow fast identification and handling of mishaps and control over the light strength according to the need. The Project will also be a base for smart city infrastructure and will allow more smart services in the future"
The original - http://www.herzliya.muni.il/?CategoryID=208&ArticleID=3492
" מותקנת מערכת שליטה ובקרה מרחוק המאפשרת זיהוי וטיפול מהיר בתקלות ושליטה על עוצמת התאורה לפי הצורך. הפרויקט גם מהווה בסיס לתשתית של עיר חכמה ויאפשר שירותים חכמים נוספים בעתיד. "
