In our society, technology permeates the workplace. School campuses, homes, and everywhere, really, more and more people are bombarded with constant EMF (electromagnetic field) and RF (radio frequency) overexposure. Ever notice how many WiFi network signals your laptop picks up? Simply seeing these other networks lets you know that you're being exposed to a barrage of EMF frequencies. Add in the constant RF radiation from cell phone towers and smart meters and you can easily see how difficult it is to distance yourself from the onslaught of electrical radiation.
Increased exposure has brought on increased reports of sensitivities to EMF/RF fields. Symptoms of EMF/RF sensitivity include insomnia, concentration issues, neuropathy, sinus concerns, fatigue, and hyperactivity. Although reducing radiation in your own home can be easy... what about when you step outside back into the never-ending supply of wireless radiation?
It seems protective clothing may be the best option. Here are a few clothing products that provide shielding effects against EMF and RF radiation to significantly reduce exposure.
Top 4 Garments and Products
1. Silver-lined clothing by Silverell, Inc.
The fabric from Silverell, Inc. are made with 90% rayon and 10% silver, offering around 90% RF protection from frequencies between 20 MHz and 8 GHz (cell towers emit 900 MHz while LTE cell phones emit 2.4 GHz). The material’s high conductivity provides antistatic properties, and the presence of silver cuts down on body odor by inhibiting bacterial growth. You can view more information here.
Several online retailers carry Silverell clothing, including EMR Shielding Solutions - Canadian-based online company that ships worldwide
LessEMF carries a wide range of clothes and other protective gear. They also offer some Silverell clothing, although this constitutes only a small portion of their product catalog. For more information, visit their website.
2. 4EHS by EHS
EHS offers a number of protective clothing options, including jackets, shirts, hats, and pants. This particular manufacturer has a strong customer base as evidenced by the positive feedback left on their website. All clothes are tested to validate effectiveness against EMF/RF radiation.

3. Swiss Shield WEAR fabric
This natural, cotton-based fabric is made from woven cotton fiber and silver-copper thread. Perfectly suitable for both clothing and bedding, the fabric is light, soft, and flexible. If you’re wanting to add a bit more color, the fabric can be dyed with simple fabric dye. It is easy to cut, sew, and wash, and will continue to offer EMF/RF protection after 30 washes. Testing has found Swiss Shield fabric to be 99% effective for protecting against RF radiation up to 1,000 MHz. Current prices are around $20 per linear foot.
Swiss Shield WEAR fabric can be purchased from the following retailers:
4. TexCare Laundry Detergent by YShield
Fabrics containing metals that protect against RF/EMF radiation need an appropriate defense against harsh detergents. TexCare laundry detergent will not react with silver or stainless steel-shielding fabrics, thus prolonging the protective benefits of the clothes. All ingredients in TexCare laundry detergent are 100% biodegradable, containing no petrochemicals, fragrances, GMOs (genetically-modified organisms), preservatives, or enzymes. The detergent can be used with both machine washing and hand washing. One liter will wash around 20 loads of laundry.

One Final Thought
The long-term effects of EMF and RF radiation on human health are currently unknown. For sensitive individuals, protective clothing may be a great option to reduce daily exposure. I'm not affiliate with any of the previously mentioned companies but I do recommend protecting against the unknown effects of EMF/RF radiation, especially for those who are sensitive to these invasive frequencies.
