A Summary of Studies Conducted on Neurological Effects of Electromagnetic Fields
There has been a growing concern of the neurological effects on the human brain due to exposure to electromagnetic fields. Studies were conducted by different groups of scientists on the neurological effects of prolonged exposure to electromagnetic fields on the central nervous system caused by cell phone usage. In this blog, we will summarize the findings of various studies and offer some recommendations on the solutions we offer to shield our brains and other body parts from radiation.
Brief Introduction to Neurology and Physical Behaviour
Our central nervous system plays an integral part in our day-to-day function. When our nervous system changes, neurological changes can occur as a result. Anything that directly or indirectly causes change in the nervous system may result in morphological, chemical and electrical changes. These changes can then be reflected in someone’s memory and perception.
Since the central nervous system plays an important part for human beings to function, it is not surprising that electromagnetic fields could lead to neurological changes which can manifest into physical changes. However, it should be noted that someone’s reaction to EMFs will differ from others depending on their severity and what sources of EMF they are exposed to.
The following is a summary of the research done on the causal relationship between electromagnetic fields and human reactions published between 2007-2020.
The Correlation between Cell Phones and Electromagnetic Fields During Sleep
The first study that was conducted was related to the use of cell phones, electromagnetic fields and waves during sleep. In 2019, a study conducted by Bak et al (2019) reported changes in the brain to specific sensory, cognitive, or motor events. While studying sleeping participants, it was observed that there was an increased slow-wave activity in the human brains after exposure to radiofrequency examples of electromagnetic fields toward the end of their sleep period. In fact, there are other studies done by looking at the interaction of cell phone radiation on EEG patterns; EEG is a test that detects electrical activity in our brain using electrodes. Changes in sleep EEG have been reported by other scientists throughout the years as well. It was reported in studies conducted by Hung et al. (2007), Regel et al. (2007), Lowden et al (2011), Schmid et al. (2012), and Loughran et al. (2012). These results confirm previous findings of cellular EMF radiations affecting our EEG during non-REM sleep.
The Correlation between Cell Phones and Electromagnetic Fields in the Auditory System
Additionally, there are studies done to investigate the effects of cell phone radiation and our auditory system. Two reports written by Kaprana et al. (2011) and Khullar et al (2013) showed effects on auditory brainstem response, two papers written by Panda et al (2010, 2011) concluded that long-term and intensive mobile phone use can damage the cochlea and the auditory cortex. Maskey et al. (2013) reported chemical changes in the superior olivary complex, a neural component of the auditory system, in mice, after chronic exposure to radio frequency radiation.
The Correlation between Cell Phones and Electromagnetic Fields in Children
More and more children are getting access to a cell phone or an iPad, so there has been a lot of debate and speculation that children are more susceptible and vulnerable to cell phone radiation. According to research done by scientists, it is very likely that the pattern of energy distribution of cell phone absorption is different for children and adults.
Previous studies have indicated that humans and animals respond differently to cell phone radiation. For example, there are differences between *6-weeks old” and “12-months old” rats (Bouji et al. 2012). In another study, GSM (Global System of Mobiles) signals affected electrical activities of the brain in younger human adults (19-40 years old) rather than adolescents (13-15 years old) or elderly (55-70 years old).
Leung et al. (2011) reported that cognitive performance affected adolescents but not in younger or older participants. Lastly, Vecchio et al. (2010) found differences in electric activities between young and elderly humans to cell phone signals.

Try Wearables that Limit EMF and 5G Exposure to the Head
In our opinion, there are several headgears and EMF protection caps that one may wear to shield one’s head against harmful radiation. It’s very important to protect our heads because the head, brain, and nervous system are especially vulnerable to EMF exposure. Not only are most wireless devices designed to be used or around the head, studies have shown that 900MHz electromagnetic fields on earth can damage the blood-brain barrier in rodents and may lead to cognitive impairment.
To compare, 5G networks on the mid-band frequencies transmit between 2 and 3GHz, and high bands even further up to 37GHz, or over 37 times higher frequency can induce irreversible brain damage in lab studies. Thus, protecting your head from EMF radiation should be an important consideration as 5G continues to proliferate.
We recommend specialized materials containing silver and/or copper elements that can provide effective shielding up to 50dB, or 99.999% effective protection against EMF radiation from 5G and other sources. The style of head protection is up to you, but protective head gear is available in Protection Bush Hats, Baseball Hats and Bandanas to suit your personal preference.
The Correct Use of Wireless Devices: Cell Phones, Laptops, Notebooks...etc.
Solutions for Cellular Phones
In our experience, we recommend that, if possible, you should always use 3G on your cell phones and turn off your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Enable Wi-Fi only when needed, never put your phone to your ears. To avoid putting your phone to your ears, you can either put it on speaker mode or use the WOREMOR EchoTubeZ Radiation-Free Air Tube headset that allows you to enjoy your movies, videos, and music unplugged from radiation with hollow air-tubes. Moreover, you can take calls on your smartphone so you can walk around and talk on your smartphone with great sound quality, free of cords, and most importantly, free of radiation!
The WOREMOR Protection Pouch has high-end components that help reduce up to 90% of cellular radiation. This pouch has an extra-strong magnet to help secure your device in place. It is easy to install on the belt and easy to take off.
The WOREMOR Protection card acts as an EMF radiation sticker that buffers between you and your cellphone while it's in the pocket and reduces the cellular radiation that is emitted by your mobile device.
Based in Toronto, EMR Shielding Solutions specializes in materials for shielding against EMF and RF radiation. We also offer many different meters, spectrum analyzers, and measuring equipment for detecting these electromagnetic fields in both high and low frequencies.
