Recent EMF News:

New: The California Department of Health Office of Public Affairs just issued the most comprehensive cell phone warning of any state. This occurred after a task force within their department drafted the guidelines back in 2009 and continued to update them, but the main agency dragged their heels in releasing it until a court order forced them to do so. That court order was the result of legal action filed by Joel Moskowitz, PhD, Director and Principal Investigator, Center for Family and Community Health at UC Berkeley.

The appeal, found at EMFScientist.org, is led by Dr. Martin Blank. To read the appeal, click here.
Note: "Researchers Conclude Wireless Radiation Causes Cancer After Latest Scientific Findings Announced". Sweden's Lennart Hardell, MD, PhD, and Michael Carlberg found a three-fold increase in cancer risk over 25 years of cell and cordless phone use, particularly in those who started before the age of 20. Based upon this and other research, the National Association for Children and Safe Technology (NACST) has launched a nationwide initiative to raise awareness of the dangers of wireless technologies in educational settings. To read the article, click here.
Note: The French National Assembly voted January 29, 2015 to address the health effects of wireless technologies, a first for any nation of this scale. Wi-Fi is banned in all daycare centers and nurseries, Wi-Fi is to be disabled in all primary school classrooms when not in use, and all new permits for cell phone towers must be announced to local officials who can organize a review and challenge by the public for health reasons. Advertisements for cell phones must accompany hands-free options and are banned when targeting children under 14. The best English translation of the news article announcing this legislation can be found by clicking here. the original Le Monde article can be linked to here.
Note: Oram was interviewed about the potential dangers of exposure to radio frequency EMFs from baby monitors by Brooke Beare, news anchor on KESQ's CBSLocal2 News at 5:30 in Palm Springs, California, which aired on November 10, 2014. To view the six minute piece, click here.
Note: Europe acknowledges and studies EHS, or Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity. The European Economic and Social Committee, a "consultative body of the European Union" that provides "a bridge between Europe and organized civil society", is holding a day-long public hearing in Brussels on the issue November 4, 2014. Their invitation says, "Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) is causing distress and loss of quality of life to a growing number of Europeans and according to new estimates, between 3-5% of the population are electro-sensitive..." See the full invitation by clicking here.
Note: The deck is clearly stacked against us, both domestically and overseas. Read Dariusz Leszczynski's sad but true blog piece, "WHO draft of EHC (Environmental Health Criteria) for RF (Radio Frequencies) is late and incomplete -- consultation is futile, at this time," by clicking here.
Note: Who says our governmental regulatory agencies are unbiased? Who do you think got to the CDC when they recommended caution on cell phone use and then retracted their statements one week later? Click here for details.
Note: Oram speaks at Los Angeles Department of Water & Power smart meter meeting. Watch brief comments by Oram at a neighborhood smart meter meeting, held May 8, 2013, at which Cindy Sage, of Sage Consulting, spoke.
Note: Andre Fauteux's list of countries that recognize electro hypersensitivity (EHS).
Note: Also, see a list of governments and organizations that ban or warn against wireless technology.
Note: The updated BioInitiative 2012 Report, released in January 2013, includes a review of 1,800 new studies showing the harm of short- and long-term exposure to wireless devices since their first report in 2007.
Note: The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) issued sweeping reforms in May 2011 to reduce exposure by European citizens to cell phones and other EMFs in an effort to protect their health and reduce burgeoning health care costs of member countries' national health plans. Likewise, the World Health Organization issued a new stance that cell phones are "possibly" carcinogenic."

Welcome to the Website for Create Healthy Homes

We are dedicated to improving the impact that buildings have on the health of you, your family and your employees. Use this site to find ways to make your home and office more healthy.

We offer environmental home and office evaluations, focusing on EMFs. This includes evaluations of existing homes, as well as real estate evaluations of EMFs in new homes and commercial spaces. We also consult on ways to design and build a healthy new home and office or remodel an exisiting one to avoid EMFs.

On-site EMF evaluations are available in the Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego areas of Southern California. Telephone and Skype consultations are available for clients throughout the US and Canada, and worldwide. To learn more, click on Services.

"EMF" (electro-magnetic field) evaluation and mitigation is our specialty, based upon the protocols taught by the Building BiologyTM profession. These include evaluation and mitigation of AC electric and magnetic fields from house wiring, including parallel neutral paths or neutral-to-ground connections ("wiring errors") and unwanted electric current on grounding paths.

We also measure potentially harmful radio frequency fields from cell phones, cordless telephones, Wi-Fi (wireless Internet) routers, smart meters, tablets and e-Readers, and nearby cell towers. We emphasize strategies that include client education, reduced use, increased distance and workable "hard-wired" alternatives to wireless devices in order to provide portability and fast, secure telephone and Internet service without exposure to potentially harmful radio frequencies.

Potentially harmful harmonic frequencies from so-called "dirty electricity" are also discovered and mitigated.

We also provide consultations for healthy EMF wiring protocols in new home design and construction for clients locally and throughout the country. Click on Services for the full range of services that we offer.

Our healthy building EMF evaluations identify and reduce household causes of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and chemical sensitivities. Over sixty percent of our clients already have sensitivity to electromagnetic fields, and two-thirds of them are symptomatic. Almost all report improvement once the sources of EMFs in their home have been identified and reduced.

The remaining forty percent of our clients are not sensitive or symptomatic but consult with us to make their homes more healthy and to keep these problems from developing in the first place.

Click on Comments from Clients to read unsolicited reports from clients who have improved from having a healthy home EMF evaluation.

Oram has written a series of articles on the four types of EMFs. To view these articles and learn how each one is created, where it is found in your home, how it affects your health, and what we do about them, click here.

Oram has written a number of additional articles over the years, accessed from this site, on such topics as EMFs and solar panels, cars, computers, TVs, baby monitors and surveillance cameras, and lighting.
