Exploratory Case Study: Outdoor EMF Exposure in the surroundings of the DDCUS Abstract: Concerned parents and community members in the city of Doral, in Miami
Electrosmog is a type of soft radiation that comes from the technologies we use every day. It alters the proper functioning of human cells by changing their electrical potential and promoting oxidative stress, which could lead to more than 75 health conditions; it also affects the environment and the functioning of the technologies themselves
Joaquín Machado is an EMF Researcher and specialist in Electrosmog and interference control for telecommunications and power lines. As an inventor, he developed several patents in Nanotechnology to produce a new approach to handle electromagnetic interference—especially those related to VHF/EHF microwave radiation from technologies—so that we can coexist with them.
For a decade, he has helped people with EHS to protect their environment and get their lives back on track.

An expert in electromagnetic pollution is a professional who studies, analyzes and investigates the possible human and environmental risks of electromagnetic radiation emissions generated by the operation of electronics and telecommunications signals.
To carry out these investigations and determine concrete preventive actions, this expert uses different scientific methods and measurement technologies.
Among the knowledge that an expert in electromagnetic fields has, are those that we will mention below:
● Basic Knowledge in Electronics
● Basic Knowledge in DC / AC Electricity.
● Mathematics (statistics)
● Consumer protection.
● Electromagnetic spectrum (Frequencies).
● Principles of Physics.
● Microwave principles.
● Engineering principles.
● Building Biology
● Environmental Health
● Risks and threats to the environment.
● Environmental regulations.
Regarding the skills that an expert in electromagnetism must have, we can say that there are a large number of them, which he must use to create and develop strategies that help in finding solutions for the environment.
These capabilities are as follows:
● Prototype design.
● Quality control analysis capacity.
● Analysis of experimental data.
● Carrying out bibliographic studies.
● Preparation of production prototypes.
● Conduct scientific research.
● Do data analysis.
● Must be able to develop test procedures.
● Able to modify technical designs.
● Reports on the results of the analyses.
● Use of technical design software.
● Project design.
● Technical design approval.
● Verify that the solutions are within the parameters and requirements.
● Interpretation of engineering designs.
● Construction and creation of solution models.
● Ability to record test results.
● Manage all the scientific measurement tools corresponding to their field of interest.
Currently, the expert in electromagnetic pollution Joaquín Machado leads various initiatives and organizations related to electromagnetic protection and hygiene.
The first of these is NOXTAK, a company that uses nanotechnology and environmental assessments to control the harmful effects of non-ionizing radiation from artificial sources through the Spin Radiation Organizer (SPIRO®) technology. Based on a filtering approach, NOXTAK created this material capable of handling these emissions, producing clean technologies and spaces free of electropollution.
SPIRO® (Spin Radiation Organizer) is a technology created and patented by the expert in electromagnetic pollution Joaquín Machado. This technology is based on the science of nanomagnetism and can be implemented in all kinds of electronic and electrical devices to filter their EMF emissions, changing the propagation pattern of radiation and filtering the fundamental disturbances created by the artificial polarization of waves. This results in clean emissions, which are harmless to biological systems, the environment, and technology itself.
Likewise, he leads the GEMS project, a global monitoring system for electromagnetic emissions that uses blockchain, whose patent also belongs to him. This platform seeks to monitor and trace electromagnetic emissions in cities and countries, so that government agencies have a reliable tool to know the electromagnetic hygiene of their regions and act to improve it, also guaranteeing an improvement in the health of citizens and less risk of failures and electrical or connectivity damage.
He is also part of BEEM, a brand that seeks to create electro-clean technologies under a filtering approach. The concept of this brand has been inspired by the purpose of saving bees, a species that is especially threatened by the effects of electropollution.
Joaquín is also the founder of EFEIA (Electrosmog-Free Environments International Accreditation), an organization that seeks to establish a global and unified standard for electroclean technologies and spaces, as well as pursuing the goal of generating a global census of electrohypersensitivity. EFEIA also has an institute dedicated to issuing accreditations for electro-clean spaces and technologies.
As an expert in electromagnetic pollution, I have no doubt that technology has advanced to make our lives easier and will continue to do so; however, the use of it can have inadvertent negative effects on our health and the environment.
Electromagnetic pollution is a type of non-ionizing radiation that has been classified by the WHO as a possible Group 2B human carcinogen. We are exposed to this radiation on a daily basis and wherever we go, it is generated by telecommunications and the devices we use on a daily basis at home, work, or for entertainment. It is an inescapable but controllable environmental toxin.
For this reason, it is becoming increasingly necessary to have the knowledge of an expert in electromagnetic fields who knows how to assess the levels of radiation emitted by certain devices in a space and propose specific actions to avoid the exposure effects.
What are the measures currently used to protect people from non-ionizing radiation?
An electrosmog specialist is trained to make the corresponding electromagnetic field measurements in a given space. Based on his experience and the resulting measurements of the spaces, the expert will be able to recommend measures such as:
● Wiring changes and faulty electrical installations.
● Exchange or relocation of electronics.
● Change of lighting systems for less polluting ones.
● Relocation of antennas and Wi-Fi routers.
● Implementation of dirty electricity filters in certain areas.
● Implementation of electropollution filters in certain devices or spaces.
To determine the intensity and possible risks of electromagnetic emissions in certain environments, the green technology advisor uses certain tools or measuring instruments, among them, the following stand out:
● Spectrum analyzer, which is used to detect the intensity of radiation, as well as power and frequency. In Spain, for example, there are current limits for this, with a power density of 1,000 μW/cm2 for mobile phone frequency ranges (2GHz).
● EMF meter, used to measure electromagnetic radiation emitted by electrical appliances.
● Dirty electricity meter, which is capable of detecting and quantifying dirty electricity of different frequencies (between 3 kHz and 10 MHz).
● TriField Meter, consisting of an AC Gaussmeter, AC Electric Field Meter, and Radio Power Density Meter in a single unit.
Yes. Over the last four decades, a large number of expert studies on electrosmog have come to light to demonstrate and support the various adverse effects that electromagnetic pollution can have on human health and the environment.
People may not realize how many artificial electromagnetic fields surround us every day. This is precisely the main objective of an expert in electromagnetism, to analyze, study and investigate each of these effects and how to prevent or minimize them.
As we look for reports on the effects of cell phone use on our health, we should also be thinking about cordless phones, smart meters, and possibly even our cars. And right now, people are facing a large number of diseases ranging from brain tumors and leukemia to memory and concentration problems as they get more and more exposure to EMF pollution or electrosmog.
Professor Olle Johansson published a paper detailing the phenomenon titled: “Wireless Technology Health Risk? The debate is over,” along with his colleague, Associate Professor Einar Flydal from the Department of Telematics at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway.
“The spectrum of potential health problems that arise is extraordinarily wide, from brain tumors and leukemia to exhaustion, decreased memory and concentration, and just feeling uncomfortable,” Johansson explained.
The Council of Europe committee reviewed evidence in 2011 that the technologies had “potentially harmful” effects on humans, concluding that electromagnetic pollution experts needed to take action to protect children. They said in a report that it was crucial to avoid repeating past mistakes made when public health officials were slow to recognize the dangers of asbestos, smoking, and lead in gasoline.
“The radiation limits allowed around the world are crazy, to say the least. We are talking about values up to 1,000,000,000,000,000,000, 10 to 18 times higher than the background radiation of nature, to which the human body has adapted over many 100,000 years; and in a couple of decades, all of us would have been surrounded by biblical levels of man-made radio waves, knowing full well that they have a huge impact on both human and animal health,” said Prof. Johansson.
Dr. Henry Lai, whose research is mentioned as part of the report on the Interphone study, reported that he had changed his mind about whether radiation from wireless signals and mobile phones was harmful. He found that when using a cell phone, 80% of high-intensity radiation is absorbed in the hand and head. Also, transmissions from wireless routers or transmission towers expose people to low-intensity, long-term radiation.
“It is involuntary,” Lai said of radiation being transmitted through the open environment. “No matter where you go, you are exposed.” He said new research is showing that exposure to the frequencies emitted by these technologies leads to increased free radical activity in the body’s cells, leading to cell damage and even cell death. DNA strands break when exposed to radiation.
Furthermore, Paul J. Rosch of the Society for Bioelectromagnetism says that claims that mobile phones do not pose health risks are supported only by Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) limits, the safety standards drafted by the the telecommunications industry decades ago according to the studies they financed.
“They have made the mistaken assumption that the only harm that could come from radio frequency emissions from cell phones would be a thermal or heating action, since such non-thermal fields cannot have biological effects. The late Dr. Ross Adey disproved this three decades ago by showing that very similar radiofrequency fields with certain carrier and modulation frequencies that had insufficient energy to produce any heating could cause calcium ions to be released from cells. Since then, numerous research reports have confirmed that non-thermal fields from cell phones, transmitter towers, power lines, and other man-made sources can significantly affect various tissues and physiological functions,” Rosch wrote.
Dr. Magda Havas, from Trent University, has been studying the biological effects of electromagnetic pollution or electrosmog in the environment caused by everything from cordless phones to televisions at home. She strongly recommends removing cordless phones from our home, as they can emit as much radiation as a cell phone tower.
She estimates that more than a million Canadians have some form of electrohypersensitivity caused by dirty electricity in the environment. She cites physical symptoms that people may experience after prolonged exposure to electromagnetic fields, including dizziness, headaches, nausea, rashes, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, fluctuations in blood sugar, and, in severe cases, seizures and strokes.
According to Professor Olle Johansson, “it is a scientific fact that radio waves in the centimeter band influence blood circulation, respiration, temperature control, water balance, the concentration of albumin and sugar in the cerebrospinal fluid. and more. Even electromagnetic fields at levels only 1/100,000th of what we are regularly exposed to from mobile phones disrupt the complex electrical operations taking place at the cellular level and cause damage to DNA, proteins, neurons and oxidation processes.”
According to an expert in electromagnetic pollution, children today are considered great users of technology, which is why they are one of the most exposed segments of the population when it comes to EMF. Children between the ages of 8 and 12 are targeted as the next big market for cell phones, in addition to the technologies they use on a daily basis, such as video game consoles, television and more.
According to Dr. Paul Rosch, “Children are more affected because their brains are developing and their skulls are thinner. A two-minute call can alter a child’s brain function for an hour, which is why other countries prohibit its sale or discourage its use to those under 18 years of age.”
Additionally, Dr. Rosch notes that pregnant women may also be at increased risk. One study showed that children born to mothers who used a cell phone only two to three times a day during pregnancy showed a dramatic increase in hyperactivity and other emotional and behavioral problems. And for the 30% of children who had also used a cell phone by age 7, the incidence of behavioral problems was 80% higher.
It is important to note once again that all life on earth evolved under the influence of solar radiation and geomagnetic forces to which we and other species have learned to adapt. The health of all living systems, such as cells, tissues, organs or people, depends on good communication inside and outside the environment.
As Dr. Paul Rosch said, all communication in the body eventually takes place through very subtle electromagnetic signals between cells, which is now being disrupted by artificial electropollution that we haven’t had time to adapt to. “As Alvin Toffler emphasized in Future Shock, too much change too soon produces severe stress due to failure to adapt. The adverse effects of electromagnetic pollution may take decades to appreciate, although some, such as carcinogenicity, are already beginning to surface.
Dr. Rosch also stated that, in general, electromagnetic fields are not appreciated to have cumulative effects. For example, talking on a cell phone for just one hour a day for ten years can add up to 10,000 watts of radiation, and that’s ten times more than sticking your head in a microwave oven. Also, if you put the positive electrode of a 1.5-volt battery in the Pacific Ocean in San Francisco and the negative in San Diego, sharks in the middle of these cities can detect a few billionths of a volt electric field.
Finally, Dr. Rosch points out that electromagnetic fields have also been implicated in the recent massive but mysterious disappearance of bee colonies, essential for pollinating more than 90 commercial crops. As Albert Einstein warned, “if the bee disappeared from the surface of the globe, man would only have four years to live”.
For many years, the surroundings of the planet we inhabit have been full of more junk, such as pieces that come off satellites; In addition to this, many Electromagnetic Pollution Experts agree that it is also full of electromagnetic waves corresponding to data transmission, either from communications between space stations or communications between satellites and devices on earth.
Due to this and to the possible flaws that could arise in space and satellite communications, it has been studied how an EMF expert could look for possible techniques or tools to improve electromagnetic hygiene beyond the horizon that our eyes see.
As an expert in electromagnetic pollution, I am convinced that technology and telecommunications can be a large part of the many constantly growing factors that contribute to climate change. Cities have increased background levels of microwave radiation by 1,000,000% in the last 30 years. With around 6 million 4G telecom towers already operating around the world, a few million 5G antennas gradually being deployed, and more satellites transmitting microwave signals to earth, have we thought about the impact that electromagnetic radiation could have on our planet?
According to the experience of Joaquín Machado (expert in electromagnetic fields) conducting environmental assessments on this subject, it is impressive how this “soft” radiation in terms of frequencies, at least enough to be classified as non-ionizing radiation, can cause so much damage in biological systems, mainly due to its artificial polarization at the fundamental level.
And it is for that reason that one cannot, from a scientific point of view, reject the idea of considering looking in some directions that others in the past have automatically dismissed and labeled as an unacceptable factor in global warming.
History has shown us that so-called experts often overlook variables in front of their eyes due to prejudices and beliefs that function as dogmas in their minds. So if we want to solve the climate crisis, or at least be prepared for the coming decades, we need to consider all the variables involved. Our planet is a giant open biological system and everything is connected in terms of ecological balance.
For this reason, an expert in electrosmog must be committed to carrying out studies, understanding and working on researches on how this environmental toxin could contribute to climate change and what are the possible solutions.
