We often think of our homes as safe places to be
We often think of our homes as safe places to be. They are not, according to Robert O. Becker, MD, an expert in electropollution. Author of The Body Electric (Perennial Currents, 1998) and Cross Currents (Jeremy P. Tarcher, 1991), Becker claims that everyday household appliances can contribute to a variety of illnesses, ranging from insomnia to leukemia. Even seemingly innocuous gadgets, such as an electric alarm clock, produce electric and magnetic fields.
To minimize electric and magnetic fields within your home, move small appliances, such as that space heater by your feet, to the other side of the room. Trade in your electric alarm clock for a battery-operated version, and unplug appliances when you’re not using them.
