What are EMFs?

EMF is short for Electromagnetic Field.  EMFs are created by all electric and magnetic objects. Just like gravity, EMFs are invisible to the naked eye. Its effects, however, are as clearly visible as that of gravity’s.

There are two types of EMFs that occur within our environment, Natural EMFs and Man-made EMFs.

Natural EMFs are created by everything from tiny atoms, electrons and even our own nerves through to objects as pronounced as the sun, planets and the whole galaxy.  Evidence of these EMFs can be seen in the build-up of electricity in the atmosphere, resulting in lightning, for example.  Another example of EMFs is when the earth’s EMF causes a compass needle to point toward north.  This same EMF is employed by birds and fish to navigate during their migratory journeys.

Man-made EMFs, by contrast, are far from natural.  Rather, these are EMFs that occur as a result of human technology such as cellular phones and computers and impacts on every human being that comes into contact with it.  Man-made EMFs are also known as “Dirty Electricity” or “Electromagnetic Radiation” and have a range of potentially devastating effects on the human body.

Some of the devices or technologies that omit man-made EMFs include:

  • Cell Phones
  • Microwave Ovens
  • Electrical Appliances
  • Gaming Systems
  • iPods & MP3 Players
  • Hair Dryers
  • Computers & Laptops
  • Indoor Lighting
  • Electric Grids and more…
