How can a device that doesn't cover a part of your body provide protection for that part of the body?
I think this is a very good point SAO and one I've been quite confused with as well.
I think the makers of these pendants usually claim that these pendants are supposed to "strengthen one's own bio-field" to make it more resistant when it is bombarded by EMF. How much of this claim is true, I do not know, so I remain skeptical.
On the other hand, the C's have claimed that wearing silk works to protect against harmful EMF. But based on what I know about microwaves, these should still be able to penetrate the spaces between silk fibers in a silk garment. I don't understand how this works either.
I guess my thought was that neither claims are backed up by any real science at the moment, but silk is readily available, and also feels good to wear. Whereas these pendants are proprietary, usually high priced and a bit suspicious as to what they actually "do".
Here's a strange/funny story:
A few years ago (maybe 4, I can't recall exactly), I wrote a letter to the editor of my local newspaper about the harmful effects of EMF. They liked the piece and decided to publish it in the newspaper. They really didn't give me any significant space to elaborate on why I though certain EMF was bad, but it gave me a chance to speak my general opinion on the subject.
A few days later, I got a strange call from this lady who lived in the area thanking me for my letter about the harmful effects of EMF. My name was printed along with the article, so I'm assuming she just looked it up in the phonebook. She sounded like she had a lot to say on this topic herself. Eventually she divulged that she and her husband were part of some new church that was trying to get the word out about the harmful effects of EMF. She said that her husband was a minister in this church, whatever it was, and said that he would like to speak to me too.
So, now I'm talking to this guy, he sounded pretty intelligent as far as what he knew about the harmful effects of cell phones, cell towers and whatnot. He mostly stuck to the science behind it and the political system that backs this technology. Then all of a sudden he starts raving about this Q-link pendant and how he wants to have every child in America to wear one of these to protect them against harmful EMF!
Needless to say, I was a little shocked and realized I was slowly getting sucked into a sales pitch.
I told him I would have to check out this product and see what it's claims are and what if any science was behind it. We left it at that and he thanked me for my letter to the editor again and then we hung up.
So, I decided to check out this product. The claims were essentially what I stated above, where it was supposed to strengthen one's own "bio-field" or something to that effect. The price tag on this Q-Link pendant was about $50. I thought, what the heck, I'll give it a shot. Maybe there is something to this product?
Meanwhile, while I was waiting for this Q-Link product to ship, I got another call from this strange couple. This time they were a little more direct. They asked me if I had a chance to review the Q-Link pendant and what I thought. I told them I really didn't have enough information at this point to make a solid opinion on it. Then I noticed they started to get frustrated. They asked me if I would be willing to help them sell this product. Apparently they were trying to make a business out of selling these things and had purchased a bunch wholesale. I told them that I appreciated the offer, but I would have to decline due to my time commitments and such. I could tell they were a bit angered by this and we ended the conversation on less than amiable terms.
That was the last I heard from them.
Finally this Q-Link product shows up. I decided to give it a shot and wear it to see what happened. Nothing noticeable at first. Nothing real out of the ordinary. I wore it for about a week and then I started coming down with cold/flu symptoms. Nothing else had changed in my diet or stress level during that time and nobody else in the family was visibly sick, so I decided it would probably be best to ditch the Q-Link. After I did this my symptoms started going away and I was fine within a few days.
So, I can't say for certain that the Q-Link pendant made me sick, but I'm not going to rule out that possibility. I don't know what effect it was having on my body or energy field either in the positive or negative sense. It sure didn't "help" me any.
Anyways, I thought that whole sequence of events was a little strange. So, like I said, maybe there is something to these pendants, but I regard their claims mostly with suspicion for now.
