Though the term sounds rather scientific, electromagnetic radiation is an integral part of our everyday living environment and affects human biology in many ways. Electromagnetic energies come in many different forms ranging from natural sources including sunshine, UV radiation and the earth’s magnetic field and from man-made sources such as power lines, cellular phones and microwave ovens. They have a physiological effect on brain wave patterns, heart beats and nerve signals.

This course will discuss the following:

  • Basic Physical Properties: Some basic laws and properties of electromagnetism and radiation are reviewed to introduce the student to the fundamental units and workings necessary for understanding the complex nature of interactions between electromagnetic radiation and living organisms.
  • Sources and Causes: Common sources of electromagnetic radiation in our living environment are presented, specifying their general causes, distribution patterns and field characteristics.
  • Biological Effects: Known biological effects caused by electromagnetic radiation as well as suspected ones are discussed.
  • Some General Recommendations: Recommendations for how to reduce or eliminate one’s exposure to harmful electromagnetic radiation in our living environment.

Successful completion of this course conveys 20 Continuing Education Credits (CEUs), and/or 20 credit hours toward IBE certification. It is comprised of five lessons, and can be read online as well as downloaded as a PDF. The tuition is $135 USD.

Cellphones, and SmartPhones in particular, along with their cousins WiFi and cordless home phones, are well documented as presenting significant hazards to human health, and as contributing factors to Sick Building Syndrome (also known as Sick House Syndrome). In May 2011, the World Health Organization (WHO) categorized cell phone radiation as a "possible carcinogenic hazard." This is a label the WHO also placed on lead, engine exhaust, and chloroform. The WHO issued a further statement that this new warning is "based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer, associated with wireless phone use."

A must for consumers who are confused by the myriad of conflicting reports, as well as for professionals wanting to bring their knowledge base up to date, this course is a comprehensive evaluation of the risks to human health posed by cellphones and microwave towers. It covers network growth versus health impacts, EMR basics, radiofrequency (RF), thermal effects, non-thermal Effects, and most importantly: the actions you can take for your protection.

Updated and edited by electrical engineer and IBE board president, Lawrence Gust, this course was originally written by Dr. George Carlo and electrical engineer Vicki Warren, BBEC.

EMR

“Sensitivity to electromagnetic radiation is the emerging health problem of the 21st century. It is imperative that health practitioners, governments, schools and parents learn more about it. The human health stakes are significant." William Rea, MD, Founder & Director of the Environmental Health Center, Dallas and Past President, American Academy of Environmental Medicine.

Explore electromagnetic emissions (also known as electrosmog) inside homes and offices, and examine techniques for identifying sources and measuring exposure. Power lines, cellular phones, Wi-Fi, and microwave ovens are all examples of external manmade sources of EMEs that potentially interfere with and disrupt our inner biological processes. This comprehensive course covers testing protocols, health effects, and remediation in the following areas of study: Static Electromagnetic Fields; AC Electromagnetic Fields; Radio Frequency; Radioactivity & Radon; and Terrestrial Radiation.

Home WiringWe can send e-mail in an instant, call someone on a cell phone from virtually anywhere, or heat up dinner in a few minutes with a microwave oven.  While we've grown accustomed to and dependent on modern technology, we are only beginning to grasp the effects of electromagnetic radiation on biological processes.  This course will examine the methods and procedures for remediating and/or eliminating electromagnetic radiation in homes and offices. Topics covered include design criteria for minimizing electromagnetic emissions (EMEs, EMF), shielding EMEs, technical house systems, power distribution, grounding issues, circuit layouts, types of cables used, and home appliance issues. Also discussed are electric heating systems, home automation, dimmer switches, branch layout, etc.
