Although infrared sauna's have many benefits such as losing weight, detoxifying etc. But supposedly because Infrared Saunas works by its electromagnetic wavelengths of radiation onto the person's body, (and it goes as deep as 1.5 inches.) radiation is known to contribute to photoaging. The wavelength of the infrared saunas is longer than that of the visible light but shorter than radio wavelength...so it is quite powerful.

Shucks!

This is advertised as antiaging, is anything sacred?

^yes normal ones should be fine. I guess infrared sauna's once in a while is okay....just in moderation. If you overdue it, too much of that radiation will take a toll on your skin. Devices such as computers/cell phone etc. emit radiation which contributes to photoaging as well

Well i can add to the fear of cell phones, LEDS, Saunas............All This stressing is going to make everyone sick, I have owned cordless phones for decades now and don't see any impact on my face! Seriously we can find some fault in everything if we input it on a search engine and hit enter? This is just one of many hits I got searching cordless phones vs cell phones radiation!

More EMF radiation from cordless phones than cell phones!


Feb 23, 2010


Most of us know about EMF radiation from cell phones but happily chat on our cordless phone for hours mistakenly believing that we are perfectly safe. But beware – cordless phones can be more of a health risk than cell phones. Maybe as high as 100%. Wow!

EMF radiation from a cordless phone charger/base stations, especially new models (DECT), even when you are two meters away from the base station is 50 times higher than Scientists consider to be a safe level.

To give it a perspective – EMF Emissions from a cordless phone charger/base station can be twice as strong as being 100metres from a mobile cell mast. And we look at them and shudder! Yet effectively we happily have a small mobile phone mast sitting in our own house or workplace.

The charger, and the hand set when not in its cradle, is emitting EMF radiation at full strength 24/7. It does not respect walls so wanders around a building unimpeded. And having a cordless phone beside the bed is a definite no-no. You are lying in a field of radiation.

It has been scientifically proven that EMF radiation from a cordless phone is harmful to the body. Research in Sweden by Lennart Hardell, Michael Carlbery and Kjell Hansson Mild who believe cordless phones may be a greater health risk, from brain tumors etc, than mobile phones.

If you can’t live without a cordless phone choose 900 MHz cordless phone instead of higher frequency phones. Most 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz phones base stations constantly broadcast but the majority of 900 MHz phones don’t. Also the 900 MHz cordless phones use an analogue signal. The 2.4 GHz and the 5.8 GHz phones use more biologically damaging pulsed digital signals.

It just seems that recently there are so many posts about the DANGERS of XYZ that we are becoming paranoid to the point of being afraid of everything! Not to be morbid but all of us are more likely to be killed or maimed riding or driving in a car than by any of our "gadgets".

Omg that is scary. My cell phone charger is constantly plugged in even when i'm not using it. And it is in my bedroom! I'm too lazy to plug and unplug...i'm going home from work and the first thing i do, i'm going to unplug that damn thing!

I got my source from my dermatologist who told me that the other day. Unfortunately I can't find anything online, all things online seem to be pointing to the positive effects of infrared saunas.

BCgirl,

This is warning you about standard Cordless Phones, not cell phones! Those of course have their own warnings like so many things!

Thank you for your response! Smile Next time you go would you mind asking your derm for references to published research on this? Not in any way doubting you or her, but rather am interested because this is being discussed elsewhere as it would be great to have input from as many professionals as possible. We have science bods around here who can locate and read studies in journals. If you have time and it is appropriate would you mind also asking her opinion on infrared in the context of LED devices?

Thanks again.

I think you guys will love this site;

Ask The Experts and Specialists In Radiation Safety (Browse around, it's full of great info on all things involving radiation.)

http://hps.org/publicinformation/asktheexperts.cfm

And this one has a place here as well I think;

Ultraviolet-Radiation-Related Exposures

http://hps.org/publicinformation/asktheexperts.cfm


You'll be hard pressed to find anything negative on 'infrared' devices or LED's though. Other than any that involve intense heat (which can have issues for the skin), the wavelengths alone are on the wrong end of the spectrum to cause damage.
