The Diodes Saved My Life
By Ray Allard (Tan Plus/Essentials Of Life)
In 2008 I became very ill, from what turned out to be prolonged exposure over
time, to emf radiation from the electronic devices that surround me at work and
in my vehicle. I experienced a variety of very unusual and somewhat bizarre
symptoms that affected every cell and organ in my body and could not be
diagnosed by medical testing. Medical doctors could not have solved my
condition. I am thankful to a stranger named "Skip" for pointing out the causes
of my illness and, ultimately, the diodes for saving my life. I am currently in the process of writing my story and expect to publish it
within the next few months.
After a considerable amount of research, we began retailing diode protection
products. We selected, as our vendor, a manufacturer that produced the widest
variety of emf protection products offering maximum protection and was capable
of adjusting the products as needed to adapt to the newest frequencies.
My wife (June) had been getting jaw pain while using her cell phone. She had to
hold the phone further away from her ear to try to alleviate it. After applying
the diode, the jaw pain went away. I would hate to think how her health would
have been affected a few years down the road without the diodes. We are both
very thankful for the diode technology.
Electricity has become an indispensible part of modern day life. It has made our
lives easier. But, is electricity also making our lives shorter? As we consider
the many aspects of our health, Electromagnetic Fields (EMF's) produced by the
electrical and electronic appliances in our homes and in the workplace, may not
be the first thing we consider when making lifestyle and health changes. Once
you have a basic understanding of the most fundamental principles of health, is
it important to know how safe or unsafe EMFs really are to our health?
Can EMFs (electromagnetic fields) from power lines, home wiring, transformers,
cell towers, computers, waterbed heaters and microwave ovens cause brain
tumors, leukemia, miscarriages, birth defects, headaches, chronic fatigue,
cataracts, stress, heart problems, cancer, nausea, forgetfulness and other
Most experts agree that limited, non-chronic exposure to EMFs is not dangerous.
BUT, it's not advisable for someone to sleep under an electric blanket, for
example, or live near a powerline, or sleep in a room where the power enters
the home. Such a person is under an extreme case of chronic exposure. This
condition, unfortunately, applies to millions of Americans.
There is much controversy as to what EMF level can be considered safe. Since the
experts have not arrived at any consensus, you will have to decide for
yourself. Many utility and government documents report the usual ambient level
of 60-Hz magnetic field to be 0.5 mG. ("mG" stands for milliGauss. See below
for an explanation of what that is.)
Therefore, any reading higher than 0.5 mG is above the 'usual' ambient exposure.
Many public officials and experts, as well as the few governments that have
made an effort to offer public protection, have adopted the 3 mG cut-off point.
The EPA has proposed a safety standard of 1 mG. Sweden has set a maximum safety
limit of 1 mG.
How Are EMFs Measured?
A "Gauss" is a common unit of measurement of magnetic field strength. A Gauss
meter is an instrument which measures the strength of magnetic fields. Inside a
Gauss meter, there is a coil of thin wire, typically with hundreds of turns in
it. As a magnetic field radiates through the coil, it induces an electrical
current, which is amplified by the circuitry inside the Gauss meter.
Gauss meters may vary in the strength of the magnetic fields which they are
capable of measuring. A meter used for measuring EMFs from power lines,
transformers, substations and appliances around the home, for example, should
be able to measure as low as .1 mG.
Avoid low-frequency (60 Hz) pulsating electromagnetic fields such as those found
in electric blankets and waterbed heaters. Also, avoid close exposure to any
AC/DC transformer for appliances you plug into a wall. Making a reasonable
effort to avoid gross exposure to EMFs, would seem to be the right approach.

After analyzing health demographic data going back to the early part of the 20th
century, Dr. Milham showed that populations without electrification experienced
less disease than in urban areas with electrification, and that rural death
rates correlated with levels of electrical service for most causes examined.
Conditions linked to electrification included cardiovascular disease, cancer,
diabetes and suicide. More...
An increasingly alarmed army of international scientists have reached a
controversial conclusion: The "electrosmog" that first began developing with
the rollout of the electrical grid a century ago and now envelops every
inhabitant of Earth is responsible for many of the diseases that impair or kill
them. During the past 100 years, we have methodically filled in the

Electricity has been a lifesaver for modern civilization and we would be lost
without it; but, research has brought to light the existence of different kinds
of electricity, namely clean and dirty. Clean electricity is safe electricity.
Clean electricity has a smooth sine wave that goes up and down 60 times a
second. Dirty electricity is electromagnetic pollution called transients and
harmonics - operating in the 4 to 100 kilohertz frequency range - which
contaminate the electrical supply.
Women with high exposure to magnetic fields during pregnancy may have a higher

with mothers whose exposure level was low. More...

People living with the meters are claiming mild to severe symptoms that are all

radiation at a greater rate than adults), electrosensitive people, people with
pacemakers, and chronically ill people whose immune systems are compromised.
You are likely one of the 3 billion people in the world who owns and uses a cell
phone. Never before in history have people used this technology so frequently,
and on an ongoing basis, nor have they been exposed to the Electromagnetic
Radiation (EMR) that is emitted from all types of wireless technologies like we
are, on a daily basis. Ever growing scientific research corroborates the
suspicion that radiation transmitted by cell phones and other wireless devices
Radiation from cell phones can possibly cause cancer, according to the World

According to Scientific American, a 2007 study in Sweden conducted between 1989

transmissions unless the weak electromagnetic waves are captured and amplified
by an appropriately designed antenna. Antennas are simply metal objects of
appropriate length sized to match the wavelength of a specific frequency of
