How is EMF harmful to our bodies?

What is EMF?

EMF is short for Electromagnetic Fields.

The electromagnetic field is a physical field produced by electrically charged objects. An electromagnetic field is an electric and magnetic force field that surrounds a moving electric charge.
Electromagnetic fields of all frequencies represent one of the most common and fastest growing environmental influences, about which anxiety and speculation are spreading. All populations are now exposed to varying degrees of EMF, and the levels will continue to increase as technology advances.

 

Is EMF harmful to my body?

According to the World Health Organization: There is no doubt that short-term exposure to high levels of electromagnetic fields can be harmful to health. EMFs are “possibly carcinogenic to humans.” The IARC believes that some studies show a possible link between EMFs and cancer in people.

A more recent study found an increased risk of leukemia in workers exposed to high levels of EMF for a longer duration.

According to helthline.com: A review of more than two dozen studies on low-frequency EMFs suggests these energy fields may cause various neurological and psychiatric problems in people. This study. found a link between EMF exposure and changes in human nerve function throughout the body, affecting things like sleep and mood.

Another study concludes that early exposure to EMF affects auditory circuits in early postnatal mice.

In 2011 the IARC classified EMFs as possibly carcinogenic to humans, according to this study. 

Why is EMF bad for me?

Human beings are bioelectrical systems. Our hearts and brains are regulated by internal bioelectrical signals.

Environmental exposures to artificial EMFs can interact with fundamental biological processes in the human body.

In some cases, this may cause discomfort, or sleep disruption, or loss of wellbeing (impaired mental functioning and impaired metabolism) or sometimes, maybe it is a dread disease like cancer or Alzheimer’s disease.

It may be interfering with one's ability to become pregnant, or carry a child to full term, or result in brain development changes that are bad for the child.

It may be these exposures play a role in causing long-term impairments to normal growth and development of children, tipping the scales away from becoming productive adults.

There is good evidence these exposures can damage our health, or that of children of the future who will be born to parents now immersed in wireless exposures.

How can I protect myself?

By being aware of the EMFs and reducing exposure.

Some practices are recommended:

  • Be aware of the devices emitting EMFs and try to stay as far as possible from them when they are on. Example: microwave oven.
  • Put your phone down when you are not using it.
  • Use the speaker function or earbuds so it does not have to be by your ear.
  • Leave your phone in another room when you sleep.
  • Do not carry your phone in a pocket or your bra.
  • Be aware of possible ways of being exposed.
  • Minimize your exposure by purchasing low EMF devices.
