EMF

Overview

Most of us are used to the conveniences of modern life. But few of us are aware of the possible health risks presented by the gadgets that make our world work.

It turns out that our cellphones, microwaves, Wi-Fi routers, computers, and other appliances send out a stream of invisible energy waves that some experts are concerned about. Should we be concerned?

Since the beginning of the universe, the sun has sent out waves that create electric and magnetic fields (EMFs), or radiation. At the same time the sun sends out EMFs, we can see its energy radiating out. This is visible light.

At the turn of the 20th century, electric power lines and indoor lighting spread across the world. Scientists realized that the power lines supplying all that energy to the world’s population were sending off EMFs, just like the sun does naturally.

Over the years, scientists also learned that many appliances that use electricity also create EMFs like power lines do. X-rays, and some medical imaging procedures like MRIs, were also found to make EMFs.

According to the World Bank, 87 percent of the world’s population has access to electricity and uses electrical appliances today. That’s a lot of electricity and EMFs created around the world. Even with all those waves, scientists generally don’t think EMFs are a health concern.

But while most don’t believe EMFs are dangerous, there are still some scientists who question exposure. Many say there hasn’t been enough research into understanding whether EMFs are safe. Let’s take a closer look.

Types of EMF exposure

There are two types of EMF exposure. Low-level radiation, also called non-ionizing radiation, is mild and thought to be harmless to people. Appliances like microwave ovens, cellphones, Wi-Fi routers, as well as power lines and MRIs, send out low-level radiation.

High-level radiation, called ionizing radiation, is the second type of radiation. It’s sent out in the form of ultraviolet rays from the sun and X-rays from medical imaging machines.

EMF exposure intensity decreases as you increase your distance from the object that’s sending out waves. Some common sources of EMFs, from low- to high-level radiation, include the following:

Non-ionizing radiation

  • microwave ovens
  • computers
  • house energy meters
  • wireless (Wi-Fi) routers
  • cellphones
  • Bluetooth devices
  • power lines
  • MRIs

Ionizing radiation

  • ultraviolet light
  • X-rays

Research on harmfulness

Harmful Effects of Electromagnetic RadiationFor most people, it is impossible to go even a day without coming into contact with electronic devices such as laptops, tablets and cell phones.

People rely on these technological tools for work, communicating with friends and family, school, and personal enjoyment.

What most people don’t seem to realize, however, is that all of these electronic devices are known to emit waves of Electromagnetic Radiation (EMF).

Even people who are aware of this fact often ignore it, but once you know all of the adverse effects this type of radiation can have on your health, you start to pay more attention.

Some people may try to convince you that the negative health effects of Electromagnetic Radiation are simply a hoax thought up by extremely paranoid people. Unfortunately, research is proving that this is not the case at all.

The more research that is done on the matter, the more solid evidence we see that Electromagnetic Radiation emitted from laptop computers, cell phones, and other electronic devices can be harmful to our bodies.

Is an EMF Detox for you?

You will most likely be interested in the EMF Detox if you are interested in the following:

  • eating healthy
  • exercising regularly
  • living consciously
  • parenting mindfully
  • feeling your best
  • healing

EMF Detox was designed for those that:

  • don’t need a lot of convincing that domestic EMF exposures are unnecessarily risky
  • want to unburden their bodies
  • want to save time in learning key information and determining how to reduce EMF exposures

While everyone would benefit from reducing their EMF exposures, those who may appreciate it the most, or may need it the most, are:

  • parents to young children
  • expectant parents
  • people who would like to become parents in the future
  • people who suffer from chronic symptoms or have compromised immune systems
  • people looking to sleep, and feel, better
