It shocks many people to discover that less than 1 percent of the electromagnetic spectrum is visible to the human eye. Think about that for a moment. Take the rainbow for example, the existence of the rainbow depends on the conical photoreceptors in your eyes; to animals without cones, the rainbow does not exist. If they can’t conceive the idea of one in their head, does it mean that rainbows don’t exist?
Part of the spectrum we can’t see is radiation. Radiation emanates from most technology, especially cell phones. Cell phones have only been around for the past 20 years or so, they’ve become extremely popular within the past 10, with more than 5 billion cell phone users across the globe. Multiple studies have indicated a possible link between cell phones and cancer, and explain the need for more studies, especially as cell phone use increases over time. (1) More specifically, studies show a link between EMFs and childhood leukemia.(2) Although the radiation emitted from cell phones might be small, multiply it by 5 billion and then throw time into the equation.
Cell phone use and the health affects resulting from their use is something we will see as time moves forward. They might also be one of many reasons cancer rates are skyrocketing. Electromagnetic fields emitted from appliances and cell phones are greatly overlooked, but shouldn’t be. Before we get into the pictures, I wanted to provide this documentary as a source for you to further your research, it’s called Resonance. The way we surround ourselves with cell phones and other electronic devices, from a health perspective, is something to take notice of.
So what would it look like if cell phone radiation was visible? Artist Nickolay Lamm decided to conceptualize what our world would look like in this case, creating a series of illustrations.
Cell phones, cell phone towers and radio frequencies are affecting our health more seriously than we might have previously imagined.
This is a “hexagonal grid of cellular base-station sites’ that cover the city of Chicago. Also known as cell phone towers, base stations sit at the corner of every “cell” in Chicago’s large network. The picture also reveals antenna signals extending beyond the original cells that provide coverage over a large part of Lake Michigan.
Above is Lamm’s artwork of the Department of Commerce which is headquartered in Washington. The picture focuses on the radiation that’s emanating from a single cell phone tower. The different colors represent the radiation’s different frequencies.
Last but not least, here’s how a long-distance cell tower radiates over the Hollywood Hills.
To help us go ahead with the same spirit, a small contribution from your side will highly be appreciated.
