Radiation testing is 40 years out of date and putting health at risk

Human beings are surrounded by radiation every day of our lives, from natural background radiation to radiation being caused by manmade sources. However, in recent years with electronics becoming a near essential part of the lives of much of the British population, and now with the recent introduction of 5G wireless, this risk has never been more apparent.

There are two types of recognised radiation that human beings come into contact with: Ionising and Non-Ionising. Traditionally, it was thought that non-Ionising radiation was less harmful, whilst Ionising radiation is higher energy and has the ability to shake an electron from the atom and break chemical bonds. However, recent peer-reviewed studies have suggested that this may not be the case, and in fact Non-Ionising radiation may also be harmful to human health.

Past studies have shown that exposure to Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) have been linked to Cancers, Fertility issues, decrease in cognitive functions, behavioural issues, headaches, DNA damage etc. It is suggested through research that EMF shakes cells through the high frequencies emitted, causing damage to DNA and overall harm to health.

Aston spoke to Tim Sandars, director at Omnia Collective, to discuss the research in further detail and also explain why radiation testing is falling behind.
