EMF Explained

What is EMF?

Simply put, EMF refers to electromagnetic fields around us that can pose health problems if we get too much exposure. These fields come from electricity and from wireless data flow such as cellular and Wi-Fi. 

Electricity produces two categories of EMF:
  1. Magnetic Fields
  2. Electric Fields
Wireless produces the third category: 
  1. RF or HF, short forms for "Radio Frequency" or "High Frequency."
There is increasing concern that all of these forms of EMF can harm us. That's why there is a lot more buzz today than ever about EMF.

Should I be concerned about EMF?

Yes you should. But let's give you some perspective first. Magnetic, electric and RF fields are obviously not killing us quickly. But they may be harming us slowly. Compare our knowledge of EMF today to our knowledge of the effects of cigarettes 40 or 50 years ago. Almost everyone smoked and they were just beginning to learn of the harmful effects. That may be where we are today with our knowledge of the effects of EMF.

Studies are being done, and there are indeed indications that prolonged exposure to electromagnetic fields can cause anything from nervousness and anxiety to more serious illnesses such as cancer and leukaemia. A prudent course of action is to err on the side of caution until we can know more.
