Everywhere I go, everyone has these on, all ages. All walks of life. All socioeconomic ranges. Basically – across the board.
Now unlike over-ear headphones, Airpods sit literally INSIDE your skull, within the cavity, and they emit low frequency EMF. There are thousands of studies showing the effects of LF-EMF’s on hormone function, cellular metabolism, DNA transcription and other elements of body health. 🔑
I’ll focus only on research showing the effects on the brain by the LF-EMF’s specifically measured by the EMF meter:
2014 study showed that exposure to LF-EMF’s increased NMDA receptor activity, leading to an increase in anxiety. Several studies have shown LF-EMF’s to disrupt transport of essential nutrients and neurotransmitter-precursors (i.e. choline) into and throughout the brain. Big NO NO !
LF-EMF’s have been shown to reduce levels of the antioxidant enzymes catalase, superoxide dismutase and glutathione reductase in the brain. (These enzymes are the brain’s primary mechanism for protecting itself from oxidative damage.) HUGE NO NO !
LF-EMF exposure leads to altered levels of monoamine neurotransmitters (norepinephrine, serotonin and dopamine.
A 2013 study showed LF-EMF’s to have a “devastating effect” on memory consolidation.
A 2015 study used fMRI to look at patterns of brain activation in humans exposed to LF-EMF’s. “Significant changes” in functional brain activation were observed.
The average EMF intensity produced by the Airpods was easily the highest of all the headphones tested, likely by several times over the next-closest headphone!
The thing that stood out to me most with the AirPods was how consistently the reading stayed in the 7-10 milligauss (mG) range.
Last but not least, Airpods sit, quite literally, inside the skull. If you were looking for the ideal place to sit an EMF-generating device to exert maximum effect on the brain, the ear canal would be a pretty good choice.
Family – please share this. All for love. Inwards – Onwards – and Upwards. #health
