What are EMFs?

Man-made electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are pollution created by the wired and wireless technologies of the modern world. They’re not visible and cannot be smelt or tasted, but are considered to be one of the most widespread and potent environmental pollutants.

Electrical Hypersensitivity (EHS)

Human beings are bioelectrical systems, with the heart and brain reliant on bioelectrical signals to function. EMFs can interact with these central processes in the body and for some people, animals, plants and micro-organisms can cause disruption in biological processes and disease. For humans, the term most frequently used for EMF-related symptoms is Electrical Hypersensitivity (EHS).
Common EHS symptoms include: headaches, concentration difficulties, sleep problems, depression, a lack of energy, fatigue and flu like symptoms.

In the beginning many of these symptoms occur only occasionally but increase in frequency and intensity over time. However by sufficiently minimizing exposures to detrimental EMFs, the body has a chance to recover and improve resilience to the adverse effects of EMFs.

Common EMF Sources and Types

Scanning the electrical and electromagnetic spectrum from electrical supply frequencies up to the top of radio frequencies – two peaks of intensity are detected – one at 50-60Hz the mains and another at microwave frequncies.

Radio-frequency radiation (RF) – Emitted from radio and TV broadcast antennas, Wi-Fi access points, routers, Bluetooth devices, mobile and cordless phones.
Extremely low frequency electric (ELF EF) and magnetic fields (ELF MF) – Emitted from electrical wiring, lamps and appliances.
Very low frequency electric (VLF EF) and magnetic fields (VLF MF) – Emitted due to harmonic voltage and current distortion, from electrical wiring, lamps and electronic devices.
