Recent EMF News:

New: I have added several new pages to this website, covering topics that come up in my daily work as an EMF consultant. They include, Healthy Lighting Choices, EMFs in Cars, Car Rooftop Cell Phone Antennas, and substantially updated information on the Safer Use of Computers page. This includes new information on how to connect an iPad to the Internet while in Airplane mode (therefore no radio frequencies) using a series of adapters and USB and Ethernet cables.
New: "Li-Fi" is here. A Russian company, Stins Coman, has developed a wireless Internet networking system using visible light. Called BeamCaster, it is four times faster than Wi-Fi, more stable, and cannot be hacked. And of course, there are no radio waves. This is already in use in offices in the US, Israel, China and other countries and will soon be on the market for under $100. To read more, click here.
New: Oram was a guest on Carole Dean's Weekly Podcast, The Art of Film Funding. The interview was conducted on July 16, 2014. The show is geared to members of the film industry, but the information I covered on EMFs is applicable to all, including a discussion of the benefits that Carole has personally experienced since I evaluated her home in Oxnard earlier in 2014. You can listen by clicking here. The one hour program is entitled, "Can reducing your WiFi exposure keep you energized on the set?"
New: Oram was a guest on Evan Brand's Weekly Podcast, Not Just Paleo. The show was recorded in June but is now available as Podcast #85, released on July 9, 2014. You can listen by clicking here. The one hour program is entitled, "Healthy Home Environments and EMF Protection."
Note: Oram was a guest on Dr. Rima Health Reports with Dr. Rima Laibow and Ralph Fucetola on Revolution Radio, Studio B, on June 5, 2014. To listen, click here. My interview begins at 19:16; that is, 19 minutes, 16 seconds, into the two hour show.
Note: Watch a trailer for a new documentary in the making, Generation Zapped, featuring comments by yours truly and other EMF experts. Help the filmmakers, Sabine El Gemayel and Carolyn Chen, with fundraising. An Indiegogo campaign is about to be launched. LIKE the filmmakers on Facebook from their website.
Note: Oram was a guest on The Morning Show with Patrick Timpone on One Radio Network this past April 28, 2014. I was able to go into great detail on EMFs for more than 2.5 hours. To listen, click here, scroll down past my photo, and click on "Download" or the gray right-hand arrow next to the speaker icon to start the show.

We were the guests of Whitney Lauritsen of Eco Vegan Gal in Los Angeles in November 2013. This video is available on YouTube by clicking here. Oram's EMF evaluation begins at moment 11:25, but I encourage you to also see the work of Ron and Lisa as they evaluate the Indoor Air Quality of Whitney's home in the first part of the clip.
Note: CES 2014: Consumer electronics show to feature 'Internet of things'
Note: If Cell Phone Radiation Were Visible, The World Would Look Like This
Note: RF/microwave exposure - more evidence that it is a universal bio-hazard
Note: New regulation for the sale of mobile phones as of 2014; The Belgian government will indeed restrict the use of mobile phones by young children and the specific absorption rate (SAR) has to be listed for every mobile phone at the point of sale.
Note: Oram spoke at the Cancer Control Society on August 31, 2013. To view a video of the lecture and to see the power point slides prepared for that lecture, click here.

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: German ministry rejects smart meters. UK delays all Smart meter installations by a year. Italy bans them entirely. No major media coverage in the US.
Note: Oram speaks at LA DWP 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: 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 to member country's national health plans. Likewise, the World Health Organization issued a new stance that cell phones are "possibly" carcinogenic."

Oram's list of recommended Southern California tradespeople (electricians, plumbers) for EMF mitigation is available here.

A healthy new building manual, "Breathing Walls," is available here.

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. 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 also available for clients throughout the US and Canada, and worldwide.

"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, redundant neutral paths ("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. Harmful harmonic frequencies from so-called "dirty electricity" are also discovered and mitigated.

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

Healthy, nontoxic building materials are recommended from such retailers as Green Building Supply, who offer everything from low- and no-VOC paint to nontoxic flooring, countertops and furniture to customers nationwide.

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 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.

You can also click on Comments from New Building and Remodeling Clients to read reports from clients who have had us consult on the design, building and/or remodeling of their new or existing home in a healthy, safe way.

Click here to see a schedule of past and upcoming EMF lectures presented by Oram. Oram is available as a speaker and writer on the topic of healthy homes, specifically focusing on EMFs.

Learn about Building BiologyTM and the International Institute for Bau-biologie and Ecology, the institute that certified Oram, in the About section. This covers the profession's history, what it provides, and why people choose Building BiologistsTM to help them create a healthier home and work place. You can also view downloadable information from the Institute's website, and learn how you can take online courses as well as become trained as a practicing Building BiologistTM.

To support our position that exposure to Electro-Magnetic Fields (EMFs) is harmful and that currently accepted safe levels of exposure are too high, click on "Cell Phone and Radio Frequency Risks." That page links to websites with current research on biologically-based, non-thermal adverse health effects from long-term exposure to wireless communication devices from information-carrying radio frequencies from cell phones, cordless telephones, laptops, tablets, and wireless internet routers (Wi-Fi).

A separate page has been created dealing specifically with the topic of smart meters.

We also offer a healthy new building manual, compiled by Oram in collaboration with George Swanson, BBEC, builder and Building BiologistTM in Austin, Texas, and Wayne Federer in Wisconsin. The manual provides healthy protocols for the design and construction of new buildings and the healthy remodeling of existing ones. It is based upon protocols taught by the International Institute for Bau-biologieTM and Ecology (IBE) in Clearwater, Florida. You can order a copy by linking to our website, www.breathingwalls.com.

All services provided are based upon the twenty-five Principles of Bau-biologieTM, the German word for "Building BiologyTM."
