The dangers of Electro Magnetic Fields (EMFs) may be one of the most pervasive ‘sleeping giants’ of the 21st century. Unfortunately, we face a ‘Wild West’ situation when it comes to wireless technology testing and standards.
Testing, which was designed by the telecom industry, is grossly inadequate in proving the safety of wireless technologies. Research shows that just exposing human cells to these harmful radio frequencies (EMFs) causes an immediate biological reaction.
There are more than six billion cell phones currently in use globally and that number continues to grow each month....a technology that has only been in heavy use for the last fifteen to twenty years.
Wireless technologies are an everyday part of our lives: besides cell phones, Bluetooth®, Wi-Fi, Wi-Max and cordless home/office phones are as ingrained in our lifestyle today as is using a fork and a spoon.
We take for granted that these technologies are adequately tested and safe.
But the truth is that these wireless technologies (that produce harmful EMFs-non-ionizing radiation) are not required to be tested for long term safety, and there are no global, nor North American testing standards for any of these products that adequately address the real risks! Additionally, the current testing protocol does not differentiate between testing a child and an adult. Radiation goes into the skull of a child three times deeper than an adult!
Wireless technological science is the same worldwide, yet government standards for allowable safe exposure differ widely from country to country. There is no consensus on what constitutes safe, allowable exposure.
This alone should cause pause for concern and catapult the world into adopting testing protocol and allowable levels in devices immediately.

Cell phone technology has not been tested to determine the effects of long term exposure- not only on human beings, but on the biodiversity of our planet.

The Silvershield project is about bringing wide spread awareness of the EMF issue as it relates to wireless technology, and providing patented products featuring SILVER. It's not about abandoning your smart phone, or wireless devices.

This brief simulation shows how radio frequency radiation (EMF) spreads around a user’s head while using a cell phone. (This simulation used data derived from actual testing and the lighter the color, the higher the level of radiation.) Shockingly, in newer phones the signal is much stronger; North America is allowed to have some of the strongest exposure levels in the entire world when compared to other countries.
Up until recently it had been thought that the radiation produced by wireless technologies, specifically cell phones and their assorted accessories, cause absolutely no threat to human health.For instance, the test designed by the telecom industry has been shown to be grossly inadequate in proving the safety of wireless technologies. Contrary to the standards used in Safety Code 6, determining if the flesh is heated or not does NOT determine safety.

Instead, independent, non-telecom industry funded testing shows that exposure can result in single and double strand DNA breaks. While single strand DNA breaks are repairable, double strand DNA breaks are usually a precursor for cancer. We now know that just exposing human cells to these radio frequencies causes an immediate biological reaction in the cells at the mitochondrial level.

An important exposé by RT, the Russian-English news agency, features interviews with prominent thought leaders in the EMF field in relation to wireless technology. They relate it to the cigarette controversy in the 60s, and explain the implications in relation to health insurance, and more in this riveting clip:

Importantly, in 2011, the World Health Organization announced that non-ionizing radiation is now considered a 2B carcinogen (potential to cause cancer). Given the pervasive use of wireless technologies described above, it stands to reason that an ever increasing number of people worldwide are not only extremely sensitive to the ubiquitous exposure of radio frequencies, but are in danger of developing cancer because of it.
Silver has the highest electrical and thermal conductivity of all metals. In fact, silver defines conductivity – all other metals are compared against it.
All SilverShield® products utilize two types of metallic fibers which, when woven together using our proprietary formula, create a textile material which is excellent at absorbing the harmful electromagnetic frequencies that produce non-ionizing radiation. We use silver and stainless steel because of their excellent ability to act as conductors and absorbers of energy, when combined. This is what allows our proprietary fiber formula and technology to be patented.
This expert technology is what makes SilverShield products the most highly effective against harmful wireless, electro- magnetic fields. Using the top industry-standard telecom testing protocol and carried out in accredited testing facilities, SilverShield® technology has consistently maintained at least an 80% reduction rate of electromagnetic radiation.
This embedded, ‘silver shield’ technology absorbs the electromagnetic radiation (EMFs) produced by the phone to reduce the harmful effects.
Silver is expertly woven into our fabrics
Our marketing efforts are focused primarily on the smart phone case because this product has the most positive impact on the more than 6 billion wireless phones currently in use around the world, but we offer two other excellent products!
• SilverShield Phone Case: Built-in, radiation-reduction technology protects while using a smart phone.
The cases are made from premium leather and are custom-designed for the most popular smart phone models. A plastic cradle holds the phone firmly in place. Our new generic cases designed to fit other popular brands utilize a revolutionary adhesive to hold the phone firmly in place, and allow the removal of the phone dozens of times as access is needed to the battery or the SIM card.
In France, we hand sew the patented SilverShield fabric technology to the front flap of an iPhone 5 custom case to create a protective barrier between the phone and the user.
All SilverShield Phone Cases reduce radiation exposure by a minimum of 80%. The rate of reduction varies by phone type and band used, yet is never less than 80%.
SilverShield technology is excellent at absorbing and dissipating the radiation produced by smart phones. Here are the original test results using the iphone 3, in 2011, the year we first filed our patent.
Interestingly as Smartphones have become more advanced and emit even more radiation, SilverShield technology has performed as good or better than our original results. New test results on all of our products will be available in 2015 .
• The SilverShield Pocket Card utilizes the same patented, silver technology found in our SilverShield Phone Cases and allows consumers to carry their Smartphone in a pocket or purse significantly reducing EMF radiation exposure.

• SilverShield Maternity Wrap is designed to limit radiation exposure to the developing fetus. Non-ionizing radiation (EMFs) has been linked to many types of fetal developmental issues. Our patented, fabric technology contains silver fibers woven into a soft, stretchable and durable fabric that shields and protects a woman's body when she is using wireless technology or in close proximity to others using wireless technology.
SilverShield Maternity wrap is comfortably worn during the full pregnancy and expands to fit.
We have developed and brought to reality exceptional products that are targeted to address the global epidemic of harmful EMFs. They are desperately needed by people around the world.
As a small start-up we have taken this project as far as we can.
We work with a legal team in order to ensure compliance with both the FDA in the USA, and Health Canada to assure that how we communicate the problem and our products is within regulation.
We are also committed to work with local suppliers to provide products and packaging – we are determined to limit our carbon footprint as much as possible.
We have assembled an exceptional team that manages all aspects of marketing SilverShield products throughout North America and internationally. This team has more than 30 years of experience in successfully launching products in a broad range of industries, as well as in the health and wellness industry. The team is focused on all aspects of marketing: trade shows, PR, advertising, social media, as well as packaging, etc.
Our biggest challenge is that the harmful EMF issue needs more visibility. We are poised to expose the issue, and position SilverShield as the answer to the problem. We will execute this via a nationwide Public Relations campaign, advertising, and through utilizing extreme social media by targeting and engaging top bloggers.
There is a multitude of so-called anti radiation products available, most of which don't work, don't have verifiable testing, nor are they patented. Unfortunately, these companies prey on naive consumers and cast a negative shadow on legitimate companies. The FTC keeps a close eye on these companies and quite often will shut them down.
Unlike one of our main competitors, we do not alter how a phone is originally designed to operate by the manufacturer. Doing so can be very dangerous. Products that alter the original functionality of how a phone emits radiation have the possibility to make the radiation exposure worse. SilverShield technology places our ‘silver shield’ fabric technology between the phone and the user’s head to absorb and dissipate EMFs. It does not change how a phone works. In fact, it has no effect on phone operation at all. It does not affect battery life or restrict the phone’s signal in any way. We know this from our detailed test report conducted by Emitech in France. Emitech is an internationally accredited testing facility which utilizes the worldwide standards, the same standards which the FCC uses for SAR testing. (The testing video is available for viewing in the Attachment Gallery.)
The SilverShield phone case and pocket card allows your phone to operate exactly as the manufacturer intended it to with one exception…our embedded, silver technology absorbs and dissipates the electro-magnetic radiation produced by your phone. This creates less of a harmful impact on the user.
We are looking for Indiegogo partners who share our vision. SilverShield patented technology drives our products, and by driving the products forward a greater awareness about this global health crisis will continue to surface. SilverShield products are our platform for awareness and ultimately, change.
We will continue to be on the leading edge of testing, promoting global standards in relation to the health of individuals and the health of the planet.
Please join us and be on the leading–edge of the next frontier in making wireless safe!
