    Is there any device that absorb -or does anything else to- radiation, thus preventing harmful effects of it?
    Is it possible to make such a device that will protect you from radiation in certain distance?
    (You know, like plug-in the device and you are safe in your room kind of thing )
    There are rumours like; Cactus and some rare stones can help you shield yourself from radiation. Is this true/possible?

    Well now, I am open for any scientific (or just logical) explaination about subject. Since I find myself
    having really low tolerance against radiation (I feel nauseated and dizzy shortly after I stand near a cell phone, computer etc 10-20 minutes)
    So this topic is important for me. I googled it and came across lots of advertises, products and stuff. Can't really tell which one is fraud or real..

    P.S: Sorry for my bad grammar; English is not my native tongue

    It makes no difference if the product is a scam or real. Any of them could possibly work for you.

    Since you mention cell phones and such I guess by "radiation" you mean radio frequencies (RF). There is huge debate, with little actual scientific evidence, linking wifi and cell phone radio (at "normal" levels) to health effects. This doesn't mean that no one could be sensitive to such -- and part of the debate is about how and who has done the epidemiology so far -- but it's not very likely.

    Therefore I would say that just about anything you find online that claims to help is a scam. The only way I know to reduce RF radiation is called a Faraday Cage, basically living in a sealed metal refrigerator. I guess a well grounded tin-foil hat could be a first step though.

    I really have no idea what's that supposed to mean.

    Thank you for your answer. Actually I've already come across Faraday Cage during my searches. But I am looking for more pratically appliable solution(s)

    It means that the placebo effect could work with any of them. In other words, the nausea and dizziness are all in your head.
