“EMF” means electromagnetic fields. For the purpose of discussion, I limit its meaning to industrial EMF, which is polarized, often consisting of square waves. These properties make it much more hazardous than natural EMF such as sunlight. We and our evolutionary ancestors have evolved along with natural EMF for at least billions of years.
WHO instructs doctors to avoid the topic of EMF. See EMF Quick Summary
Shielding a video camera in the hallway [jw01]
With patient diplomacy, I got management to allow me to shield the video camera near my apartment. I cut four layers of heavy duty foil to size, and taped this to the camera and its antenna. I did not obstruct its communication direction, which was downward. It appears that foil too close to the antenna might cause it to dysfunction (I might be wrong and did not verify). EMF reduction was about 400x. This is a big win, which I could feel and measure this improvement.

A long-time friend died of colon cancer recently. He was completely into natural living and nutrition and lived in a low pollution area. He was a leading critic of germ theory. He interviewed me five times on his podcast and we wrote several articles together.
His blind spot was the hazards of EMF. He made a good living in the communications industry and perhaps in denial, he could never accept that WiFi was a hazard. I complained that he did not read the studies I sent him. He would not respond.
Cancer is an obvious EMF symptom, because cancer is the result of accumulated damage to nucleic acid (DNA and RNA). EMF readily damages nucleic acid.
Upon learning of his cancer, I offered to step him through an EMF education, detection and abatement process. It would be simple. Yet, he did not respond.
He apparently rejected chemo, but he was considering infrared sauna, an intense EMF generator. That could have been his therapy. I remember another acquaintance who used electric heating near her bed, and eventually acquired breast cancer after a winter of use.
Near his cancerous death, my friend credited various experts who advised him on herbs and other treatments, but no cause. He never mentioned my advice despite our long acquaintance. I’m not looking for credit, but showing his tunnel vision re EMF. If you read more of my anecdotes here, you will see why such human disappointments are not surprising, though nevertheless sad. Very strange here, as my friend was known for his patient, objective and conversational civility.

JW: “Hello. How are you?”
He: “Horrible. Yesterday, I felt bad in my stomach area, and I went to the doctor. He told me I have cancer throughout here [passing his hand across his stomach].”
JW: “Do you have a computer and an Internet router?”
He: “No, just a router, on 24/7. I’m keeping it for a neighbor.”
JW: “Do you have trouble sleeping, and nervous legs.”
He: “Yes, I have great trouble trying to sleep. I am nervous and wake up, walking around, several times every night.”
JW: “Your cancer could be caused by EMF, the router. Check this out on the Internet; many are talking about it. Many scientific studies. Doctors’ are instructed not to deal with this topic, instructed by WHO. They dismiss it, calling it hypersensitivity and a mere psychological condition. But don’t believe me. You can personally test these ideas by turning off your router before you go to sleep, and next time I see you, we’ll talk.”
He: “I am bothered by the treatments. They are destructive, even carcinogenic. Wow. I’ll check into this EMF stuff on the Internet. [Further discussion of EMF ideas ensued.]”
JW: [A few days later I see him.] “How did you sleep?”
He: “Great! I had deep sleep first time in years.”
JW: “This could well be related to your cancer too. Work on detection, shielding and distancing from EMF, and keep testing these ideas.”
He: “I will.”
We were both optimistic. Yet, from here on, he was friendly, superficially, but would not entertain a pragmatic conversation on the EMF topic. He continued seeing his doctor, began chemotherapy, and found that his body was unable to tolerate the chemo. He is engaged in a Medical and nutritional regimen, a program to work himself into a state where he can tolerate toxic chemo.
I view cancer as an inflammatory response to toxic stress, not usually an enemy. It is body language (symptoms) calling attention from the mind, from management, requesting focus, consideration, and energy. And so I feel sad and angry, that I am watching another tragedy play out.

One warm morning, I shopped at a farmers’ market, then rested on a bench. Another shopper was walking by, our eyes met, and he walked over. Immediately, we began talking about one of my favorite topics, EMF hazards. He sat down.
He said, “I am an electrical engineer. I was disabled by EMF to the point where, to recover, I had to move into a remote rural area where there was no electrical exposure. That recovery took 1.5 years. I am OK now, and with care, can function without symptoms.”
I replied, “I find that every building, every apartment, has Internet routers and power cables running through the walls, TV cables etc, and this makes it nearly impossible for me to sleep. But I survive with about $1,000 worth of shielding fabric, and I tape foil on the wall to shield EMF sources.”
He said, “Ground the shielding or it can become saturated.”
Me: “I don’t trust the ground.”
He: “You must move to the countryside.”
