Analyze your TV and entertainment systems for radiation.

Healthy HouseTM TechTip

Analyze your TV and entertainment systems for wireless radiation. The majority of smart TVs now have embedded WiFi and Bluetooth. If you don't have a smart TV, it may have been equipped into one via a USB WiFi adapter. If you have a gaming system, there is also a good chance that it is equipped with WiFi and Bluetooth. If you are using an Internet streaming device, like AppleTV, Amazon Fire TV, Google Chromecast, Roku, or others, they too are designed to communicate via wireless radio frequency radiation. Many TVs, gaming consoles and streaming devices are emitting radiation even when they are not in use. Many remote controls now use Bluetooth or WiFi Direct instead of Infrared that has commonly and more safely been used for many years.

It is best to tackle your TV entertainment area through iterative testing and process of elimination while working to minimize and eliminate the RF radiation. Use a combination of disabling, hardwiring or unplugging to minimize your RF exposure in your living space that is coming from your TV entertainment area. Take it in stride, ever little bit helps.

Disable WiFi and Bluetooth on your devices

Healthy HouseTM TechTip

Manually disable WiFi and Bluetooth on your devices when you are not using them.

Even when you are not using them, your smart phones, tablets and computers are still emitting EMF radiation. Even with your WiFi router off, they will continue to "search for a signal" and emit a large amount of radiation.

Powering off your computer and devices entirely is another option to stop radiation coming from them.

Below are screenshots from an iPhone showing what it looks like to have WiFi and Bluetooth off. On your phone, swipe up from the bottom to make the quick configuration screen appear. The phone radiates the least amount in Airplane Mode, but you cannot receive calls. At least turn off WiFi and Bluetooth when you are not using them.
