Are EMFs Dangerous?

Protection from EMF exposure

According to the latest research, EMFs are unlikely to cause any adverse health effects.

You should feel safe using your cell phone, and appliances.

You should also feel safe if you live near power lines, as the EMF frequency is very low.

Is there proof that EMF causes health issues?

Some studies have found a link between EMF exposure and a higher risk of childhood leukemia, but other studies have not. Other studies have not found proof that EMF exposure causes other childhood cancers. Studies in adults did not prove that EMF exposure causes cancer.

Can EMF cause cancer?

No mechanism by which ELF-EMFs or radiofrequency radiation could cause cancer has been identified. Unlike high-energy (ionizing) radiation, EMFs in the non-ionizing part of the electromagnetic spectrum cannot damage DNA or cells directly.

What is considered a safe EMF level?

Exposure levels to EMFs around the home are in the range of 0.01–0.25 microtesla (µT) or 0.1–2.5 mG. For homes near powerlines, these levels may be as high as 0.5–1 µT (5–10 mG). Immediately under the powerline, magnetic field levels of 6–10 µT (60–100 mG) may be found.

What frequencies are harmful to humans?

Low frequency sounds can be harmful

Human beings are normally able to detect sounds in the range of 20-20,000 Hz and it is well known that sounds within this range can damage the hearing. However, sounds under the frequency of 20 Hz can also affect the ear even though we are unable to hear them.
