Emf Dangers

In recent years, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has taken measures to educate the public about the potential dangers of electromagnetic fields (EMFs). Although our understanding of these dangers is still evolving, our widespread exposure to EMFs calls for public education initiatives. Armed with information, consumers can make more informed decisions and can take the measures necessary to protect themselves from risk.

With or Without

Electromagnetic fields can be found just about everywhere, from the power lines outside your window to the transformer vaults a few blocks away. These energy fields allow cell phones, microwaves, and a host of other gadgets to run smoothly. Without them, we would be pretty lost.

With them, however, we are also in a difficult position. This is because EMF radiation has the potential to be harmful to humans under certain conditions. Scientists are still untangling the nature and extent of this risk, but in the absence of clear information, the EPA has also taken measures to protect public safety.

Notably, they have added EMFs to a list of potentially toxic substances and publicly mandated future research. Although there is no need for hysteria and no need to abandon the creature comforts of a modern lifestyle, it is important to be aware that many common devices come with risks we do not yet understand fully. In addition, it is important to be aware of the numerous measures one can take to protect against radiation exposure, as many innovative manufacturers have designed products for precisely this purpose.
