What are safe EMF levels?
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.
Is 500 milliGauss safe?
The earth has a natural static magnetic field of 500 milliGauss / 50 microTesla. It needs to be noted that the NH&MRC guidelines specify oscillating magnetic fields below which immediate health effects are unlikely. They are not an indication of safe levels for continued exposure to low levels of magnetic field.
Can you die from EMF?
No proof of harm
No clear evidence that EMF affects biological processes. No evidence that EMF can change living cells or is genotoxic (harmful to DNA). No convincing evidence from animal studies to support the claim that EMF increases the risk of cancer.
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.
What material can block EMF?
Typical materials used for electromagnetic shielding include sheet metal, metal screen, and metal foam. Any holes in the shield or mesh must be significantly smaller than the wavelength of the radiation that is being kept out, or the enclosure will not effectively approximate an unbroken conducting surface.
Can EMF cause anxiety?
Increased exposure to ELF-EMF had a direct and significant relation with increased stress, depression, and anxiety. This study suggests that long-term occupational exposure to ELF-EMF may lead to depression, stress, anxiety and poor sleep quality.
