Note: A Health Canada scientist admits that Canada's radio frequency safety limits are based solely upon thermal (heating) effects. Sadly, the same is true for America's FCC. For details, click here.
Note: The updated "BioInitiative 2012 Report"
has just been released, including 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: DVDs of the presentations at the Building Biology Conference in Washington, DC this past October 2012 are now available for purchase. Featured speakers included Devra Davis, Camilla Rees, Tim Schoechle, Duncan Campbell, Dr. Martin Blank, Dr. Lisa Nagy, and Dr. William Rea. To order the five DVD set, click here.
Note: To read about sweeping reforms adopted in May 2011 by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) to reduce exposure to cell phones and other EMFs, and the World Health Organization's new stance that cell phones are "possibly" carcinogenic," click here.

Welcome to the website for Create Healthy Homes, 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 inspections, focusing on EMFs. We also consult on ways to design and build a healthy new home and office or remodel an exisiting one. 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 throughout North America.
"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 and grounding issues. We also measure harmful radio frequency fields from cell phones, cordless telephones, Wi-Fi (wireless Internet) routers, smart meters, and nearby cell towers. We use client education, reduced use, increased distance and alternative "hard-wired" strategies to provide portability and fast, secure Internet connections without exposure to harmful radio frequencies.
We also provide consultations for healthy new home design and construction to clients throughout the country. Click on Services for the full range of services that we offer. To learn more about programs that certify your new or remodeled home as "green" and sustainable, click here.
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. Almost all report improvement once the sources of EMFs have been identified and reduced. The remaining forty percent are relatively asymptomatic but consult with us to make their home more healthy and keep these problems from developing in the first place.
Click on Comments from Clients to read unsolicited reports from those clients who have improved from one of our healthy home evaluations.
You can also click on Comments from New Building and Remodeling Clients to read reports from clients who have asked us to consult on the design, the building and / or the remodeling of their new or existing home in a healthy, safe way.
Click here to see a schedule of upcoming healthy home lectures presented by Oram in Southern California, as well as a listing of past lectures. This schedule is updated regularly as new lectures are added. Oram Miller, BBEC is available as a speaker and writer on the topic of healthy homes.
Learn all about Building BiologyTM and the International Institute for Bau-biologie and Ecology in the About section. This covers the profession's history, what it provides, and why people choose Building BiologyTM to create a healthier home and work place. You can also view downloadable information from the Institute's website, and learn how you can become trained in the Building BiologyTM profession.
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 of wireless communication devices from information-carrying radio frequencies from cell phones, cordless telephones 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 is now available and 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 going to our website www.breathingwalls.com.
All services that we provide are based upon the twenty-five Principles of Bau-biologieTM, the German word for "Building BiologyTM."
