RF Blocking Window Film for Better Health

The reason RF radiation could be detrimental to health is that it has lower energy than other types of waves like “non-ionizing radiation” (infrared and visible light). But more energy than low-frequency radiation. This means in large amounts it could cause heat. Heat via waves like this could potentially, in large doses, cause harm to the human body. To be clear, these waves are not proven to be extremely harmful to humans. However, anecdotally, there could be a link to RF exposure to poor health like headaches and blurry vision. This is especially true for those who live closer to a radio broadcasting source. RF Window film blocks these waves on the windows of homes and businesses.
