    There's an electric blanket somewhere in the house but I never use it. Just pile on the old-fashioned kind!

    but after staying w/ family over the holidays and using an electric mattress pad (like an electric blanket but underneath you instead of on top) we loved it and ordered one last night.
    i found an amazing deal for like 70% off via overstock.com too!!! this one has 2 dials - 1 for each side in case you share a bed and 1 of you wants it warmer than the other.
    i'm always cold... and this is going to make this winter not so terrible. :-)

    Am afraid of electric blankets. Down comforter is so much better and yes, flannel pajamas and/or night gown are just as warm.

    I just wear socks to bed and/or use extra blankets to stay warm. They're safer.

    Specific Risks Linked to Electric Blanket EMFs

    Recent data reported in the American Journal of Epidemiology suggests that regular use of an electric blanket may increase breast cancer risk in some women, and according to a 2007 report published in the European Journal of Cancer Prevention, using electric blankets was associated with a 15 percent higher prevalence of endometrial cancer than never having used one. The same study also revealed that the use of electric blankets for 20 years or more was associated with 36 percent higher prevalence of endometrial cancer.

    Other studies have shown that the EMFs generated by electric blankets suppress melatonin production. Melatonin is the most important detox agent for your brain and is also an anti-inflammatory. Electromagnetic radiation can make inflammation worse by creating more potent mycotoxins, so reducing inflammation is vital.

    Research included in the BioInitiative Report mentioned above have also found links between melatonin disruption and the promotion of breast cancer.

    Electric blankets create a magnetic field that penetrates about 6-7 inches into your body -- for hours at a time. This qualifies as chronic exposure.

    Epidemiological studies have linked electric blankets with miscarriages and childhood leukemia.

    I make it a rule not to court danger. One out of 8 North American women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Since there is no cure for it, I do what I can to reduce my body’s toxic load by removing toxins from my environment and going back to basics--natural girl for life.

    You should get a breast thermogram to make sure you are fine.

    in high school my best friend and her family were like that and she ended up with TB and in hospital her whole Soph. year.I was feeding my boy friend's Dad who had TB and I never got it!!!
  • Trish Sister ... 2013/01/02 01:50:16 (edited)

    Because you did not get TB in your teens does not mean you can't get cancer as an adult, right?

    Hereditary breast cancer only accounts for 5-10% of all breast cancer cases. Lack of education about the risk factors for breast cancer is one of the main reasons why so many women are developing it.

    "In a draft report issued in March 1990, the EPA recommended that EMFs be classified as a Class B carcinogen -- -a "probable human carcinogen and joined the ranks of formaldehyde, DDT, dioxins and PCBs."

    "Electric blankets create a magnetic [EMF] field that penetrates about 6-7 inches into the body."

    " ...it is not advisable for a person to sleep under an electric blanket..."

    I don't have an electric blanket. I do have a down comforter which I use infrequently, but it does keep me nice and toasty on a night when the house drops below 70.

    when I got a tempur-pedic mattress, I never had to put my electric blanket back on my bed, those mattresses run so HOT! I do have a heating pad that I slip at the bottom and turn on while I get ready for bed, when I climb in, my feet get a toasty treat, but if I slept with an electric blanket I'd wake up a stewed and sweating mess. I adored my electric blanket back in the day too. =-(
