The Difference between Ionising and Non-ionising Radiation: Does This Tell Us All We Need to Know?

Radiation, at its core, is another term for the emission of energy. Every substance in the universe emits some type of energy, so whether you’re sitting at your computer now or scrolling on your phone, you are a source of radiation, as is everything around you.

Given that everything emits radiation, we are surrounded and bombarded by radiation every day. Radiation is what heats up the earth, allows us to listen to the radio, make calls on our phones or watch videos on our laptops. 

Harmful vs Harmless

From the conventional physics perspective, most of the radiation that we are exposed to is thought not to be harmful, but some substances, materials and devices that give off radiation clearly are. The difference between harmful and benign radiation has traditionally been determined by whether the frequency of the radiation waves will cause damaging effects to an atom or cell.

As frequencies get faster and more intense, the radiation was observed to cause two effects which are very similar: it either caused a chemical compound to break or it shook the electron off the atom. The term to describe this phenomena was listed as ‘ionising’ radiation - and this was deemed harmful to the atom and therefore the human cell.

If the radiation field was at a lower frequency, and was not intense enough to break a chemical compound, nor to shake the electron off the atom, then it was categorised as ‘non-ionising’ and harmless. 

Official Definitions in Science 

'Ionising' Radiation
  • Short wavelength/ high frequency, higher energy. 
  • Has sufficient energy to produce ions in matter at the molecular level
  • Produces enough energy to shake an electron off an atom. 
  • Breaks chemical bonds. 
'Non-Ionising' Radiation 
  • Longer wavelength/lower frequency lower energy. 
  • Does not produce enough energy to shake an electron off an atom, nor to break chemical bonds. 


The science world then put together a chart of all the different sources of all radiating devices showing what frequencies they emit called the Electromagnetic Spectrum.

This is traditionally the standard way that all radiation safety has been measured, in terms whether the radiation is ionising or non-ionising and whether it had the capability to cause any damage to the atom.

The Electromagnetic Spectrum

In this article we will look at whether this traditionally held view represents the whole truth. But before we get to that, let's have a deeper look at the Electromagnetic (EM) Spectrum along which the delineation between ionising and non-ionising has been drawn.

The EM spectrum is the range of all types of EM radiation. Radiation travels and spreads out as it goes and can be described in terms of a stream of mass-less particles, called photons, each traveling in a wave-like pattern at the speed of light. Each photon contains a certain amount of energy. 

The different types of radiation are defined by the amount of energy found in the photons. Radio waves have photons with low energies and gamma-rays the highest, making up each end of the EM spectrum. Between the two are microwaves, infrared light, visible light, ultraviolet light and x-rays.

The Ionising / Non-Ionising Distinction 

Ionisation is the term given to the process by which electrons are removed from their orbit around a particular atom, causing that atom to become charged, or ionised. This process can occur when radiation of sufficient strength interacts with normal atoms. Radiation that is not powerful enough to trigger this process is known as non-ionising. The division between ionising and non-ionising radiation occurs in the ultraviolet (UV) range, which is why that range is split into UV-A and UV-B rays.

Ionising

Conventional science postulates that by fundamentally changing the chemical makeup of an atom, ionising radiation can cause molecular damage and the unchecked cellular growth known as cancer. If exposed to human reproductive organs, ionising radiation can also lead to future birth defects in unborn children. Though it does not generate heat, ionising radiation is said to be even more dangerous than non-ionising to living tissue. 

Ionising radiation does possess valuable properties, however, and has been widely adopted in the field of modern healthcare. Medical imaging, such as x-rays, rely on man-made ionising radiation. Radiotherapy is used to treat conditions, including cancer, by obliterating targeted areas of tissue. Unsurprisingly, the same dangers that occur from natural radiation are present with the manufactured kind, and side effects from high doses of radiation treatment can be serious in and of themselves.

Non-Ionising

Examples of non-ionising radiation include infrared, microwaves, and light along the visible spectrum. Just because it does not strip electrons from atoms does not mean non-ionising radiation is harmless. It is still capable of exciting atoms and in turn heating them up. This is the theory behind how microwave ovens work. 

Critically, human biological tissue is not exempt from this effect. Exposure to types of non-ionising radiation whose wavelengths are smaller than the body can lead to dangerous burns. This is why exposure to the sun's rays causes the skin to cook and eventually burn.

From the traditional science perspective, the sun produces both ionising and non-ionising radiation. Though the sun is responsible for a great deal of the naturally occurring radiation a human may be exposed to, only a small fraction of that which reaches the surface of the Earth is considered to be ionising. 
 

The Omnia Understanding

While all of the above is accepted and understood by conventional physics, a new understanding of physics, as discovered by Professor Lakicevic, has revealed a deeper understanding of how non-ionising radiation causes harm to the the human cell. This understanding is based on the critical fact that we are electrical beings having a biological experience. Every cell in our body relies on electrical current to exist and function. Moreover, it has particular phases, or ‘spin’ effects which are crucial to keep in balance for our good health.

It is this electrical balance in our cells which is disturbed by the microwave radiation field from phones. This is because the spin of electric current in phone radiation is not in the same pattern as the spin of the electrical current in the human cell. This causes ‘dissonance’ and imbalanced effects in the cell.

The True Distinction: Balanced or Imbalanced

According to Prof. Lakicevic, there is only ‘balanced’ radiation or 'imbalanced' radiation. Reframing our evaluation of radiation being either 'harmful' or 'harmless' within this distinction gives us a truer understanding of where the dangers lie and therefore how to mitigate these dangers.

Balanced radiation has characteristics of a centred zero point and whereby the two phases of the atom and cell are in balance (the ‘compression’ phase is balanced with the ‘expansion’ phase of the light ring). An example of balanced radiation is the Sun’s rays. It gives birth to all life, it grows all our food and we cannot live without sunlight.

An example of ‘imbalanced’ radiation, where the zero point is not aligned with the centre, is man-made radiation. Electrical fields made by man used to generate and pass data have this feature and are therefore not in the same vibrational pattern as the human cell.

This 20 minute video of How to Harmonise a Radiation Field offers a fuller understanding of this distinction. (https://youtu.be/ack3LGHXhyI)

When exposed to a radiation field, it is the excitement of the atomic structure within the cell alone, rather than whether or not heat is generated, that causes the disturbance. These effects have been clearly shown in the Omnia test results.

This understanding provides the basis for the 6,000 peer reviewed studies which have revealed detrimental health affects caused to animals that have been exposed to radiation that is wireless and classified as non-ionising, and non-thermal. These studies pose a severe and permanent challenge to traditionally held beliefs about safety from radiation.

So to summarise, what we have in the traditional science’s Electromagnetic Spectrum as a measure for what is safe or not, is now out of date.

It is only in the last 20 years that we have used electronic devices of extraordinary power, which are radiating at incredibly high volume of ‘non-thermal’, low frequency levels.  We now hold them in our hands, next to our heads and store them right beside our genitals.

We assume this is safe by looking at the Electromagnetic Spectrum, but many scientific reports are showing us now that this is clearly not the case.
