EMF exposure in your home: what you need to know. Many people don’t even know this is a ‘thing’ that they should be concerned about for their health.
EMF means an electromagnetic field, which is a physical field produced by electrically charged objects. Every cell in the human body has an electromagnetic field. All matter is affected by these fields in some way. In our modern lives of electronics and communication devices, EMF isn’t a by-product. EMF is the product. These are no safe levels of EMFs for you and your family.
EMR stands for Electromagnetic radiation. Electromagnetic (EM) radiation is a form of energy that is all around us and takes many forms, such as radio waves, microwaves, X-rays and gamma rays. Sunlight is also a form of EM energy, but visible light is only a small portion of the EM spectrum, which contains a broad range of electromagnetic wavelengths. Electricity and magnetism were once thought to be separate forces. However, in 1873, Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell developed a unified theory of electromagnetism. The study of electromagnetism deals with how electrically charged particles interact with each other and with magnetic fields.
On-going high levels of low-frequency EMF exposure in your home can contribute to sleep issues, stress, depression, brain fog, dizziness, frequent illnesses, adrenal fatigue, hormone imbalances and increased cancer risk. WE often forget about this risk when we think about our health challenges and it is vital that we put focus on the dangers of EMF exposures for ourselves and our families.
We all need to learn how to enjoy the benefits of modern living and communication devices while reducing the dangers to our health.
The NIEHS (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences) categorizes EMFs into 2 different groups:
Also be mindful of the EF exposures in your workplace and office building if you work outside of the home. This can often be a high level of exposure. Schools are another source of EMF exposures for your kids – please do your best to protect them.
While we celebrate the conveniences of modern living, we haven’t been well prepared for the inherent dangers in these devices and EMF exposure in your home. Please become EMF aware and protect you and your family. As we mentioned at the start, EMF is actually the product of these modern devices so you cannot remove EMF exposures completely but you can reduce your family’s exposure.
Print out this infographic, put it up on your fridge, kitchen wall where your family can see it clearly until these habits become part of your daily lives. You owe it to your kids future. You can discuss it around the table. It is our experience that kids are excited to take control of these lives and learn about these inherent dangers but also that there are ways to mitigate the dangers. They will share with their friends and spread the message.
