A stand alone device that generates protective frequencies
by inducing the oscillation of a polymer at frequencies
that counter adverse effects associated with electromagnetic radiation.
 The present invention relates to devices and methods for protection against exposure to electromagnetic radiation and more specifically to a stand alone device that generates protective frequencies by inducing the oscillation of a polymer at frequencies that counter adverse effects associated with electromagnetic radiation.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
 Every operating electrical and electronic device emits electromagnetic radiation (EMR). The power of this emission varies depending on the size and electrical strength of the device and the electrical current it carries. High voltage power lines are significant emitters, and their field strength is sufficiently high to cause adverse effects on humans, animals and plants even hundreds of feet away. Smaller devices, such as computers, television sets, cellular phones and microwaves, emit lesser quantities of EMR, but the effect on humans can still be significant because people are in much closer proximity to such devices.
 Adverse effects on the health of humans that have been reported as attributable to long-term EMR exposure include occurrence of certain cancers, multiple sclerosis, headache, and sleep disruption, impairment of short term memory, autism, and significant increases in the frequency of seizures in epileptic children. Reported adverse effects on animals have included stillbirths of young and reduction of milk production in cattle.
 Although the effects of electromagnetic radiation on human health are not always easily quantifiable it is the desire of many prudent people to eliminate or reduce their exposure to EMR. There exist various methods of protecting from EMR that rely on reducing the magnitude (or strength) of the radiation that enters human body. Most commonly these utilize some sort of protective shield that enclosures the emitting apparatus hereby reducing the energy that is radiated by the EMR emitting device. Alternative approach is disclosed by Smirnov (U.S. Pat. No. 6,369,399), which describes an EMR shielding material that is composed of an electromagnetic radiation optimum neutralized polymer (MRET-Shield). MRET-Shield material does not reduce the power of electromagnetic fields. It "shields" the cellular structures of the body against the harmful biological effects of EMR. The radiation is still entering the body but the neutralizing effect of MRETShield material reduces the adverse effects associated with exposure. However, MRET-Shield required the design of a protective shell that encloses the EMR emitting device. While personal communications devices, such as cell phone or Blackberry, can be easily adapted to fit into such protective shell as a part of their design, enclosing larger electric appliances (inter alia personal computers, game consoles) is often impractical. Further, replacement of current EMR sources such as power lines would be cost prohibitive. Therefore, there remains a need to protect against EMR emitted from devices that do not provide a protective shell.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
 The present invention addresses deficiencies in current methods for the protection against electromagnetic radia
tion and provides related benefits. In one aspect of the present invention a device for protecting a subj ect against exposure to electromagnetic radiation emitted from a remote source is provided. The device includes a housing, a solenoid operably connected to a driver and a polymer. The solenoid generates incident radiation which results in the polymer emitting electromagnetic oscillations at frequencies that counter adverse effects associated with the subject's exposure to the electromagnetic radiation. In one embodiment, the polymer includes a polar matrix, an oxidated hydrocarbon emulsifier, a galvanic salt, a dye or stain, and a polysaccharide. The solenoid is provided in various configurations. In some embodiments, the solenoid includes a two frequency mode that generates at least one carrier frequency of incident radiation. In other embodiments, the solenoid includes a two frequency mode that generates two carrier frequencies of incident radiation, wherein the carrier frequencies are at higher frequencies than the oscillation frequencies. Carrier frequencies may independently or collectively induce oscillation of the polymer materials. In some embodiments, the solenoid is positioned circumferentially around an inner cylinder that houses the polymer.
 The device of the present invention will have particular utility for the protection against radiation emitted from electronic devices such as a computer, a computer peripheral, a cellular telephone, a television, an audio system, a household appliance, and the like. Further, the device may protect against any intentional or unintentional sources of electromagnetic radiation with Effective Radiation Power (ERP) limited in compliance with FCC regulations.  In another aspect of the invention, methods of protecting a subject against exposure to electromagnetic radiation from a remote source are provided. The methods include providing a device as provided by the present disclosure within an effective radius of the subject, and operating the device, such as by activating the solenoid driver. In some embodiments, the device is positioned within a same room as the subject. In other embodiments the device is placed from about five feet to about twenty feet from the subject. In other embodiments, a plurality of devices is provided within a plurality of locations.
