Did You Know…that a simple essential oil may protect you from cell phone radiation?
It is well known that cell phones expose us to health-harmful levels of radiation. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) states that cell phone radiation is actually a “possible human carcinogen.”
Long-term exposure to radiation can lead to…
- DNA damage (harming normal cell growth)
- Poor immune functioning
Radiation exposure is easy to overlook as the underlying cause of many common symptoms and conditions, including… chronic fatigue… depression… digestive problems… memory problems… chronic stress… insomnia… heart palpitations… and headaches/migraines.
Chances are, you don’t plan on giving up your cell phone. But you may want to consider simple, powerful protection steps, such as using rosemary to lessen the negative effects of radiation exposure.
DNA Damage Occurs Quickly
Cell phone radiation can alter and damage DNA quickly. A six-year industry study found that when blood was exposed to cell phone radiation, genetic damage increased 300%!
This same study found that radiation from cell phone exposure might be more dangerous than smoking and asbestos.
According to data submitted by Pong Research to the Federal Communications Commission, some cases can increase radiation exposure by up to 70%.
Pong is a manufacturer of cell phone cases designed to be safer, and therefore has a financial interest in this research. However, representatives at the Environmental Working Group are convinced that Pong’s data is accurate, and that your cell phone case may in fact be significantly boosting your radiation exposure.
Use Rosemary To Protect Yourself From Cell Phone Radiation
Many natural health experts say that rosemary (as a tea or infusion or applied externally as an essential oil) is one of the best natural means of reducing the effects of radiation:
Rosemary has potent antioxidant properties proven effective against radiation damage.
The British Journal of Radiology reported in 2009 that the carnosol and carnosic acids in rosemary “provide highly significant protective anti-mutagenic [anti-cancer] activity.”
Add chopped rosemary to a cup of boiling water. Steep for 5-10 minutes; drink daily.
Other Ways to Use Rosemary
Natural health experts advise using several drops of rosemary essential oil in some carrier oil such as jojoba or coconut. You may apply the mixture on the bottoms of your feet daily. Another method recommended by experts is to put a few drops of rosemary essential oil on a cloth and inhale the scent, or, even better, use an aromatherapy diffuser or vaporizer.
