Does ‘Work From Home’ during COVID-19 impact your health?
Since many of the professionals have started working from home because of the pandemic, they may find themselves permanently working home, as per the new survey done by Gartner.
Gartner’s last week’s released results from a March 30 survey of 317 CFOs and business finance leaders found that 74% of those surveyed expect that at least 5% of their workforce, who previously worked in company offices, will become permanent work-from-home employees after the pandemic ends.
Work from home is a new work practice many in the workforce will experience. Generally, people think this is more facilitating because it gives you more freedom to your daily routine, but every new experience has some pros and cons. We have to identify drawbacks to reduce negative impact. One of the disadvantages can be exposed to higher non-ionizing radiation.
We are surrounded by many radiation sources while telecommuting. For example, your WiFi router could potentially be located on top of your head or your work desk. Your cellphone might be connected to one or two network operators, ex: Bluetooth headphones/ smartwatch. All of them are emitting radiation from safe to dangerous levels.
The World Health Organization and International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as one of the probable causes for carcinogenic to humans. Based on increased risk in glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer1, associated with wireless phone use.
The high usage of cellphones has raised concerns about the possible interaction between electromagnetic fields (EMF) radiation and the biological effects on human tissues, particularly the brain and the immune system. The immune system has a vital role: It protects your body from harmful substances, germs, and changes that could make you ill. As long as your immune system is running smoothly, you won’t feel any discomfort. But if it stops working as it should, due to it’s weak or inability to fight particularly aggressive germs, it will result in you falling ill.
The primary sources of radiations for mobile users are the Celular towers and WiFi routers they are connected to. In hopes of digging into the root cause, many studies are ongoing to find the impact of mobile phone radiation on humans; however, there is also an ongoing debate over human health safety. The cells that are exposed to non-ionizing radiation demonstrate a massive increment in DNA damage that has no cure for at the moment.
The radiofrequency radiation can change the immune system capacity. In result causing inﬂammatory responses, hypersensitivity responses, as well as a decrease in the cell repairing process. The inﬂammatory reactions produced by the human body can be harmful to cells, tissues, and organs over time.
The Revolution of technology to 5G or any other feature technologies are a significant threat to human health. The effect on the immune system caused due to non-ionizing cellphone radiation may also possibly increase the chance of Inflammatory diseases like COVID-19 in the future.
It is crucial to find a solution that can detect, track, and analyze the effect of cellphone caused radiation. Let us introduce you to Emiwatch. Eniwatch is a subsidiary of Venturit Inc, a research-based healthcare AI startup working on non-ionizing cell phone radiation.
Emiwatch detects and monitors and tracks cellphone radiation exposure and predicts symptoms the user might be affected due to high exposure. Emiwatch hopes to help more than 5 billion cellphone users in the world to reduce the adverse effects of radiation and live healthily.
Currently, we’re in the process of developing our app to bring you the tools you need to reduce your daily exposure levels to radiation. For more information about this topic, you can visit www.emiwatch.com
