Want to learn about how and why to protect yourself, your family and the environment from EMFs? With “The Grid” (national power grid) being revamped, EMFs are probably something we should all — if not know about — at least be able to quickly find good information on.
Here’s a site that’s devoted to providing quality education about the health impacts associated with electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and radio frequency radiation (RF). It offers resources for community activists working to facilitate public policy change. It’s called the EMF Safety Network. Easy enough to remember.
The site features a “EMF and RF World Concerns Summary” — a compilation of links to public policy of governments, health agencies, scientists and advocacy groups worldwide.
The field can be viewed as the combination of an electric field and a magnetic field. The electric field is produced by stationary charges, and the magnetic field by moving charges (currents). — paraphrased from Wikipedia
On TV, paranormal researchers scan rooms for EMF fluctuations, which are considered evidence for ghosts. That’s for you to decide.
“The voluntary exposure of the brain to microwaves from hand-held mobile phones… [is] the largest human biological experiment ever.”
~ Professor Leif Salford, Head of Research at Lund University, Sweden, as quoted in the story 10 Cell Phone Radiation Protection Tips, by Taraka Serrano.
But before you send anybody any money to protect yourself from EMF rays, read this article on skepdic.com. In the article, while not completely ruling out the possibility of linkage between EMFs and disease, it says:
In 1997, The New England Journal of Medicine published the results of the largest, most detailed study of the relationship between EMFs and cancer ever done… [the study] “found no evidence that magnetic field levels in the home increased the risk for childhood leukemia.” The study took eight years and involved measuring the exposure to magnetic fields generated by nearby power lines. A group of 638 children under age 15 with acute lymphoblastic leukemia were compared to a group of 620 healthy children.
Anyway – it’s a good idea to have an EMF Safety Site.
