No known health effects are expected if your exposure to EMF falls below the levels in the following guidelines: natural electromagnetic fields (like those created by the sun): 200 V/m.
power mains (not close to power lines): 100 V/m.
power mains (close to power lines): 10,000 V/m.
electric trains and trams: 300 V/m.
What level of electromagnetic field is dangerous?
Despite extensive research, to date there is no evidence to conclude that exposure to low level electromagnetic fields is harmful to human health. The focus of international research is the investigation of possible links between cancer and electromagnetic fields, at power line and radiofrequencies.
Is electromagnetic radiation harmful to humans?
At sufficiently high flux levels, various bands of electromagnetic radiation have been found to cause deleterious health effects in people. By far the most common health hazard of radiation is sunburn, which causes over one million new skin cancers annually in United States.
What are safe levels of RF radiation?
How can I protect myself from RF exposure? In 2002 ARPANSA published the standard: Radiation Protection Standard – Maximum Exposure Levels to Radiofrequency Fields – 3 kHz to 300 GHz. The ARPANSA RF Standard sets limits for human exposure to RF EMR in the frequency range 3 kHz to 300 GHz.
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 WiFi give you cancer?
Does WiFi impact my health? So far, there is no consistent evidence that WiFi routers or WiFi-powered devices increase cancer risk. Despite low-frequency EMFs being classified as possibly carcinogenic, researchers have not observed a direct connection between these devices and cancer.
Do high voltage lines cause cancer?
“There is no known mechanism by which magnetic fields of the type generated by high voltage power lines can play a role in cancer development. Nevertheless, epidemiologic research has rather consistently found associations between residential magnetic field exposure and cancer.”
