The Hertz (Hz) is the unit used to measure frequency. Hertz gives the numbers of repeated oscillations (processes) per second.
The frequency is Hertz is generally only seen in the technical details of devices that produce electromagnetic fields and radiation. We normally see the abbreviations MHz (megahertz) and GHz (gigahertz).
1 Hz = one vibration/process per second (1 Hz)
1 MHz = 1 million vibrations/processes per second (1,000,000 Hz)
1 GHz = 1 billion vibrations/processes per second (1,000,000,000 Hz)
Typical, often-used frequencies and Hertz are:
- 60 Hz for the computer monitor (60 images per second)
- 100 to 800 Hz from LCD television (Images per second. 3D technology works at least 200 Hz)
- 1 to 4 GHz for computer processors (processes per second)
- 2 to 5 GHz for mobile radio, mobile Internet, WLAN (electromagnetic vibrations/waves per second)
Hertz in geobiology and in practice
If electromagnetic vibrations could be seen in color, people would see nothing other than color. However, modern devices emit GHz frequencies, which means that our body is hit by billions of vibrations per second. Even though the strength of the waves (watt) makes up the big difference, this is still an unbelievable number, and everyone now has one or two cell phones and WLAN and/or mobile Internet at home. “Electrosmog through electromagnetic radiation” definitely exists!
In geobiology, we work with Vitallkick mains disconnectors, GPA shielding mesh, and T98 shielding paint to protect from low-frequency (current). We use NOVA shielding fabric, GPA shielding mesh, and T98 shielding paint to protect from high-frequency (mobile radio, W-LAN, DECT, HSDPA, LTE…).
