BIOPRO EMF Harmonization Chips
Cranky Media Guy sent me a link to this interesting product: BIOPRO Chips. BIOPRO describes itself as a leader in the field of EMF harmonization devices. You see, you may not have realized it but, as BIOPRO tells you on their website, virtually all electronic devices emit dangerous electromagnetic frequency (EMF). Phones, microwaves, computers... You name it. So what's a person to do? Simple. Get some BIOPRO Chips. These amazing chips are designed to defend against EMF. Apply some of them to your electronic devices, and EMF emissions will be 'harmonized', thereby rendered harmless. It took me a while before I figured out exactly what these 'chips' were. But then I figured it out. 'Chips' is a euphemism for 'stickers'. BIOPRO is selling little stickers that are supposed to protect people against 'electro-pollution'. Of course, the website contains no explanation of how or why these stickers would work. Obviously that's because these stickers won't do anything but lighten your wallet by a substantial amount.

"To me this says they are charging this chip with resonant frequencies, would this not make this so called chip an AC battery?"

Although I went to electronics school for six months after I graduated from high school way back when, I wasn't a very good student, so I might be wrong here. Feel free to correct me if I AM wrong, but wouldn't an "AC battery" be a breakthrough in electronics? Aren't batteries DC by nature?

This, of course, is just another reason to doubt the claims for these chips.

You are right it would be a breaktrough.

To get an idea of the mind set of the makers of these bogus devices. Look at the ads on this page, who in there right mind would advertize their product on a fourm that is proving them to be a rip off!

U.S. Food and Drug Administration
FDA Consumer magazine
November-December 2000
Table of Contents




"With the recent media spotlight on cell phones, cancer researcher John Moulder, Ph.D., warns that some marketers are preying on people's fear of radiation, selling fraudulent devices with claims that they are protective. Moulder has seen a variety of creative but useless items, mostly on the Internet, from pendants worn around the neck to so-called RF-proof lingerie. As to products sold as shields for the phone to cut your RF exposure while not interfering with the communication signal, Moulder says, "I have yet to see one that can do both of those things.""

I found these comments very interesting, though I feel the discussion got a bit sidetracked by the gun thing. In any case I have included a couple of exerpts that I found on various websites (see end, hoping to refer back to your April 26, 2005 response to Joseph). I am not a salesperson, just curious about these sort of claims. In regards to "infusing resonant frequencies", all objects in nature have this. It's call vibration. The human body is naturally made up of vibrations, energy fields, frequencies, etc. Our bodies are natural conductors of different energies. But, all things in life and nature require balance. For instance: yes, the sun is, in several ways, bad for us, but that is what the ozone layer is for...to protect us (until we screwed it up). Our bodies were not made to "deal" with all of the technology that has popped up in the past century, we need some extra help sometimes.
I don't know about BioPro or Clarus' claims, but I think it is extremely closed-minded to think that something like this (which is more natural than you probably know)is a "bunch of crap". Also, in regards to the US Food and Drug Administraion report: who in their right mind believes all the crap that government agencies feed us?
Exerpts:
It is well known that the human body responds to and is capable of generating various frequencies of activity. Witness the use of MRI and NMR techniques in conventional medical diagnostic procedures. Similarly,cellular DNA has been determined by Lorenzen and others to have a resonant frequency 42 octaves above "middle C" on our musical scale. This has major implications in the fields of neurobiology and biochemistry. These examples utilize known and measurable resonant frequencies for various organs, tissues, liquids, celular constructs and bones and represent science which is routinely used in medical diagnostic procedures worldwide.
Today, sophisticated devices have proven that the human body has a constant flux or flow of electricity through it, so in a sense the human body is an electromagnetic coil or antenna. Human DNA, which is a super coiled double strand molecule, acts as an antenna and is known to emit electromagnetic radiation. Therefore it is fairly easy to understand, how we can be positively influenced by all these natural forms of electromagnetic frequencies. All things in nature seek harmonic balance.

I bought one for my teenage daughter who is a sensitive enough human to feel differences in her performance to try it out and give me feedback on how she feels each day. I also read up on the experiments and scientific scrutiny that have been legitimately conducted.

The last people I would ever trust with information regarding
products that increase vitality and promote good health in an increasingly health risked world is the U.S. govt, period.

If you want good info you have to search. This is technology that has been researched for 25 years at universities around the world. It's mentioned in their promotional material which places
have conducted studies. If you search for those studies you can see for yourselves what happens to blood, skin and other parts of your whole self when these painstakenly designed inventions
do what they were designed to do.

Ask the cynics to take the time to read everything they can find and then make a statement based on what they observed. If they want to talk before that then it will all be blather. Time to change the channel For a good place to start, type the folllowing into your search engine. The pdf attachment will give you background enough on all the science that has supported the purpoted benefits from using this product.

What's my interest in joining this discussion? Whenever I look up something that I'm intensely interested in, I try to find any information that legitimately refutes what the prospects are of my item in focus. I haven't found it here, so Ill look in a couple more or so places then I'll call it a day, kiss my daughter goodnight, ask her how she felt today, and send for a few more of these things because I'd like my whole family to be protected as well as we're able against the constant onslaught of a world filled with electronic gadgets. I do love them all, but the dangers are unmistakable, and our health and peak performance are worth more than a few measle hundred dollars.

My two cents worth,
Roger

This initial discussion came about from talking about the cell phone chips, and one counter argument was referenced of the pendant. Actually the materials from which the chips are made are different (resin) than the pendant (some type of metal). I don't remember hearing that Tiger ordered any of the chips for his use though.

The seller specifies in an FAQ somewhere the reason why it is good to use both the pendant and the chips. The pendant is good for EMF from all types of items in the environment, where the chips are to be placed specifically on those areas where EMF and/or heating exists.



They also have a device which can be used for the home - plug it in to an outlet and it will protect your home up to 60' radius. And the amazing thing is that it uses no electricity...so why do I have to plug it in then?

Regarding the chips, the seller also states that you can put these chips on your car to enhance gas mileage - surely this is a very simple scientific test that could be done to prove the increase, so why can't I find the test results published somewhere?

Finally, the seller states that one pendant can't be shared by 2 people because the pendant tunes itself to an individual person's biofield. Wow - pretty amazing. Sounds like the seller would rather fine tune their wallet through sales of multiple pendants.

Joseph is full of fallacies. He sells a product that claims physical properties, but can't put physics behind it. Being a business major does not preclude common sense or an understanding of science, although many people who are business majors tend to fall into pyramid schemes faster than a scientist will. I have looked at the science on the website; it is done by cooky non peer reviewed people in Germany. Listen, my dad fell for this crock and bought a bunch of these little dimes and there is a sticker on my phone now, but I do not think it does a damn thing; biofields are not even proven. Just becuase people endorse something does not mean a damn thing; this is the fallacy of the majority. At one point, people endorsed slavery. At another, people crushed other people under tons of stones calling them witches. Another time, people endorsed monarchy. Endorsement might sell products, but it is out of trust, not out of knowledge. This is worse because it has been shown, scientifically, and with enough data to now support lawsuits, that cell phones might cauase cancerous tumors. Putting this sticker on might help people feel better, without actually doing anything. Allllll of the 'good reviews' Joseph brags about could be placebo effect. People think the sticker will do something, and it actually doesn't, when they need to find something that will be effective.

Look, I am a technician with over 10 years experience mantaining/troubleshooting/teaching and studying electronics theory and technologies. And there are some impressive things out there I cant lie, but this isnt one. What can you trust?
I found very little to refute the claims of biopro's technology, but I found not a single one to support it (I looked for over an hour).
A couple of my family members bought this product for the rediculous price of $140 and when I learned this I immediately got mad.
I read their sight... it was silly. They do not know anything about electronics or radiation. Nice rubber sticker, though.
One last thing, it claims not to effect the phones transmit/receive properties in any way... hahaha! They don't seem to know what radiation is or what they are claiming.
Don't waste your money on a sticker that just lets everyone know you are gullible.
Thanks BIOPRO for making my loved ones waste their money to look stupid!

Hi Geroges Lakhovsky found much better uses for natural local and solar and manmade emfs, In 1924 He used a length of copper wire to encircle a geranium plant he had inoculated with a chemical to cause cancer, he did this with fifteen other geranium plants, the coppe circle had a diametre of 30 cms it was enamelled with both ends prevented from touching and the wire attcahed to an ebonite stake pushed into the soil of the plant pot, the other fifteen plants died quickly of cancer while this plant fully recovered and lived a life span beyond its species usual span. This is documented with pictures online or can be read wih many other ways to help yourselves in his book "The Secret Of Iife" great read, hope this helps :O)

EMF is nothing to take lightly.

Our cells communicate with or tissue, and our tissue communicates with our organs, and our organs make up an organism. For those that are confused... That would be us. And you. A human being. All of this communication uses natural electric communications and frequencies. We need our cells to communicate PROPERLY in order to live NORMALLY and HEALTHY. The reason why EMF has become such a scare in society is because these Ellectro Magnetic Fields DISTURB the way OUR CELLS COMMUNICATE. This results in corrupted cell growth, corrupted tissue and organ communications. This results in DISEASE. This results in CANCER. Don't be surprised when there's a National Health Crisis in the year 2050. And don't tell me that I didn't WARN you! So go eat some fruit and drink the beloved tea.

I don't think people disagree with the concept of EMF potentially causing problems, as much as the proposed solution of these stickers in mitigating those effects!!!
Posted by steve  in  Texas USA  on  Mon Feb 04, 2008  at  08:33 AM
I've done much research about items and devices for clearing up harmful EMF, and I've found much enlightenment. I've bought a little something called the, "ecrystal," and I got the results I wanted. I've owned the thing for about 7 months now, but unfortunately I have lost it. Been looking all over for 2 days, and I can't find the little 70 dollar item.

I suggest any of you to try one of these products. If you want cheap, then do research on Crystal Catalyst. The 12 Point Resonator is nice.

You only notice the difference once near it for about an hour or so. It would take a very long time to find it with that method. It's a new science. Not magic.

Use EarthCalm which is designed for business owners who desire to provide EMF protection for their workers. These units are sold in a set of two plug-in devices to provide powerful Scalar Resonance Technology. Business owners will notice decreased absenteeism and a higher level of productivity among their workers. Begin with the first 7 circuit EarthCalm Office Protector for a one to two week adjustment period before plugging in the second 7 circuit EarthCalm Office Protector totaling full 14 circuit protection for all your employees. If you are a health professional the Office Protector will put your clients at ease. Therapists might also find their clients more open to insight and change.

WOW! Another over priced piece of jewelry... I mean CRAP! Once one scammer start the ball rolling as biopro has it is amazing how many scammers will follow.

All you have to look at is their lame ass disclaimer just like biopro's and all the other MLM Scams out there:

"This information is for educational purposes only and is not to be construed as a recommendation for treating disease. Always consult a health practitioner for treatment of disease. No statement in this website has been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. EarthCalm claims only to release the nervous system from the stress of AC generated EMFs."

What more can you say when their own statement says it all. This company like all other companies are just taking advantage of a "perceived" idea - a perception they have all created via MLM Marketing and is is all just a load of crap! Just like the Man Made Global Warming scare which we all know now is just another method to rape us as a new type of tax; AKA: Carbon Credits. All of this is created through total propaganda. We know it sound like a scam... well, is it?

Cranky Media Guy/Alfie/Joseph, your a bit silly arn't you?


So let me get this straight, you poke fun at people because people believe in the qlink and you poke fun at the makers for selling a product as such but you don't even know about the FDA cover ups or government propaganda or control, but you want to use these in your arguements are you complete morons ?

Fisrtly, let me get this straight, what the makers claim is that it harmonizes emf's by harmonizing our own energy fields so we don't get affected as much as we would if we were not in balance. Let me guess, you wouldn't even believe in Auras unless your precious mainstream science could not prove it. Well people have been working with body energy for thousands of years before your precious, government controlled scientists proved we all have our own energy fields.

There are some complete idiots out there, that are either working for the gvt, or just plain stupid to think they know everything there is to know and thus closing off all other possibilities, well guys, have a nice, sheltered life.

BIOPRO IS A SCAM - Your a fool and an idiot!

"Man Made Global Warming scare which we all know now is just another method to rape us as a new type of tax; AKA: Carbon Credits. All of this is created through total propaganda".

For years govt's were trying to cover up global warming, but now that it's undeniable they have no choice but to come out, sure they might be making MORE money off it, but it does not mean its man made propaganda. When animals that have been around for thousands of years before us start declining 400% or more on the last 100 yrs or so, climate specific animals I mean, well it's not hard to realise whats happening.

All I can say is, don't knock it till you try it. There have been a lot of "scientific" and real world tests for clarus products all with positive results, so sure you can poke your fun, but your just showing your imaturity level by babbling about something you know nothing of.

What does that gibberish mean? Assuming we can figure it out, how do we test it? I mean, you're not just taking their word for it because you WANT to believe in it, are you? You DO want them to actually work, right?

"Let me guess, you wouldn't even believe in Auras unless your precious mainstream science could not prove it."

Uh, what? I wouldn't believe in "auras" unless science couldn't prove their existence? I suspect you meant that I wouldn't believe in "auras" unless science COULD prove their existence. That would be correct. I do NOT believe in the existence of human auras.

"Well people have been working with body energy for thousands of years before your precious, government controlled scientists proved we all have our own energy fields."

Every time I type a letter on my keyboard, I'm using "body energy," so yes, it obvious exists. What is your point?

I'm confused. First, you attack science, then you claim that my "precious, government controlled scientists" have proven that we all have an "energy field."

What scientists are you talking about and in what way are they "government controlled?" Also, why would the government (WHICH government?) be interested in suppressing knowledge of such a thing?

"Please give us a link to a photo of you with a poop patty on your head OR I will be forced to conclude that you are a hypocrite".

Your just showing your plain ignorance and stupidity, poor fool. I said don't knock it ie don't knock something you know nothing of and besides I know squrrel dung is good smeared on my head, I just can't get any of the good stuff here in OZ.

http://www.holosuniversity.net/pdf/Eichler_HUGS_Dissertation.pdf

Check that out, theres pleanty more case studies out there, and that is for the clarus clearwave, not the biopro products, but I'm guessing you'll have just as much problem with the clearwave too.

I put scientific in quotes, because as god as mainstream science is good, it is bad too. There have been known cures for cancer, aids and many many types of serious illnesses for decades that never make it public, I wonder if thats because the gvt and pharmacutical companies are in bed together, duh. How do we have memories or think or walk or breathe, at the core of it all, it's because of energy, little electrical impulses, so where does that come from ?


Your next post I can't even bothered be responding to, but I'll say this much, Aura's can definately be proven using GDV and kirlian photographic cameras, among other methods. It is well known that the energy field around our living bodies, as well as animals bodies dissapate and vanish once we die.

Do a little research before you make yourself sound even more discredited and totally stupid you arrogant Cranky Media Idiot. Why are you so cranky anyway, maybe it's because your so tied up in the governments media BS, or maybe you just have a small penis, oh well either way it's your loss.

And the actual EVIDENCE for this is what, exactly?

"How do we have memories or think or walk or breathe, at the core of it all, it's because of energy, little electrical impulses, so where does that come from ?"

Well, to greatly simplify the answer, our cells convert the electrical impulses into motion or thought. This has what to do with BIOPRO?

"Your next post I can't even bothered be responding to, but I'll say this much, Aura's can definately be proven using GDV and kirlian photographic cameras, among other methods."

"Kirlian" cameras take pictures of coronal discharge, not auras. The Kirlian nonsense has been thoroughly disproven many times. As a believer in the existence of human auras, however, you won't be interested in reading about those FACTS, I'm sure.

"It is well known that the energy field around our living bodies, as well as animals bodies dissapate and vanish once we die."

Yes, it's "well known" by people who believe in psuedo-scientific nonsense.

"Why are you so cranky anyway, maybe it's because your so tied up in the governments media BS, or maybe you just have a small penis, oh well either way it's your loss."

Ah, Ye Olde Ad Hominem Attack, the last refuge of those who have no actual FACTS to back up their beliefs.

Aren't you afraid that letting out all that "negative energy" will turn your aura black?

"And the actual EVIDENCE for this is what, exactly"?

You couldn't believe it anyway, you media idiot, all you believe is what the pathetic government and media tells you, so I don't care about your useless way of thinking.

My question was where do the electrical pulses originate from, media idiot, not what happens afterwords, read what I wrote properly, and it has something do do with our energy fields, not biopro, we are beyond that point of the conversation now, try to keep up.

If you don't believe that we have spirits, souls or auras, it really is your loss, all you see and hear and feel is what this materialistic world has to offer, and because of that, I truly feel sorry for you.

Don't worry your just not at a point in your spiritual evolution to understand or accept what I am saying or what more is out there that could benefit you greatly.

You probably have truckloads of karma to pay off first, so don't worry, one day (or life), you will get there.

I'm not afraid of anything Media Idiot, I'll let out what I want and it wasn't negative to me, maybe you, but who really cares, each to his own.

Your either working for the government, completely brainwashed by everything you see on the media, or very deeply christian, maybe all of them. Like I said, it is your choice to close of the doors to a higher evolution, and I respect you for your choice, good luck!

Wish I knew programming so I could write an application for my computer to harmonize it with me then I would not have to worry about emf when I am using it.
Posted by Alfie  on  Thu Oct 30, 2008  at  08:32 AM
Programming has nothing to do with it.

You can't harmonize emf's unless you use something like lead, then still it's not harmonizing, it's shielding.

Basically put, every living thing has an energy field, if this field becomes weakened or imbalanced, then things like disease, illness and emf's can be detrimental to our bodies.

The idea of resonance technology is to harmonize or balance our energy fields so as such things do not impact us. I guess you could say its like a force field. This force field or aura can be programmed (by our concious mind) to vibrate at higher frequencies (stronger force field) or lower frequencies (weakened force field). It very much has to do with our intentions, thoughts and actions as to the specific frequency we create for ourselves.

Love and light to all, except that Media Idiot guy, just joking, even you smile
