What Are EMF's

In today’s world the human body is exposed to man-made EMFs, now at unprecedented levels. Our daily exposure to these man-made EMFs is delivered primarily through our cellphones, WI-FI, computers, blue tooth devices, powerlines and much more.  As humans we are electromagnetic beings and the cells in our body communicate through electromagnetic impulses.  When the human body is constantly being bombarded by man-made EMFs we can easily be thrown out of natural balance.  If the cells in our body cannot communicate as effectively as they should, this can also lead to a slower functioning our immune systems which can increase the possibility for various health challenges to develop. Some people are very impacted by the growing deluge, others less obviously so. Everyone, regardless of physical signs, is impacted.


The textiles used in TRU47’S silver products are all silver plated and contain 99.9% pure silver. This is called an ionic process and is very different from coated, nano-technology methods where silver (or a silver alloy) is often are sprayed on. This can result in silver flecking off and getting into one’s body, in addition to the environment when disposed of; even ending up in our waterways.  Pure silver is regarded a “noble element”. It a natural one that possesses the highest electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, and reflectivity of any metal. Silver effectively acts to create a barrier between a human being and the extensive level of man-made EMF’s that will conduct, absorb, and dissipate the radiation away from your body.


There is a documented increase in the number of people experiencing a sensitivity to EMF’s. It is more important than ever to shield your body from the constant onslaught of EMF’s.  TRU47’s silver fabrics  are technically engineered to meet standards and be protective. Those suffering from a sensitivity to EMF’s, commonly referred to as Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS) have similar symptoms. These are reported to include recurring headaches, body aches, Lethargy, nausea, dizziness, heart arrythmia, anxiety, and skin irritation.  In some severe cases, the physical impact can be much greater, causing very serious conditions. In addition to providing shielding benefits, silver has long been recognized as having natural antimicrobial properties that act in a multitude of ways to inhibit and eliminate the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew preventing unpleasant odors, discoloration, or deterioration of the fabric.


High frequency radiation from electronics have been known to effect brain activity, reaction times, and sleep patterns. In Electromagnetic Hypersensitive (EHS) people, these effects are much greater. Our personal shielding garments are specifically designed for radio frequency radiation reduction and have been tested to achieve a shielding effectiveness (SE) of 35-40dB from 900MHz to 5GHz, showing a 99.99% reduction of RF radiation to the wearer.  In its simplest terms, SE is a measurement of the reduction of energy from the source of the radiation through the shielding barrier. In other words, it is measuring how much of the original energy wave made it through the barrier. This residual energy level is expressed in the unit of decibels (dBs). And each dB measurement correlates to a percentage. Therefore, if you know the dB measurement you also know the percentage of the energy wave that has been blocked. In the reference to our personal shielding garments, 40dB correlates to a 99.99% reduction of RF radiation. IEEE 299 is the standard method for measuring the effectiveness of electromagnetic shielding.
