There is so much buzz about EMF exposure in the news lately. If you’re familiar with the term EMFs you probably know they are electromagnetic fields. And we can be exposed to them through:
- anything electric, such as electrical appliances, power outlets, and extension cords
- microwave ovens
- wireless communications, like cell phones and wireless routers
- old metal plumbing
- power lines
- possibly smartwatches, such as the Apple Watch
But did you realize that continued EMF exposure can cause serious health problems and even lead to premature death? Because of this, it’s crucial to identify where these threats lurk so you can protect yourself.
Hidden Dangers Of EMFs In The Home
EMF exposure is very much an unexplored area. We have a clear understanding of high-frequency EMFs as the effects of these are visible. For example, if we stay in the sun too long we get sunburned, and we will take measures to avoid exposure.
However, as outlined in the infographic below, we don’t pay nearly enough attention to the effect of low-frequency EMFs. We’re exposed to them every single day with some people believing that rather than effecting a person immediately, their impact is felt over time.
Of course, it’s impossible to completely limit our exposure to EMFs, but we should at least be aware of EMF levels in common household items. When you consider that the Environmental Protection Agency recommends a maximum exposure of 0.5 mg to 2.5 mg, and many of the most common household items expose you to levels far greater than that on a daily basis, there is every reason to be concerned.
Doing simple things like unplugging devices when not using them can make a big difference. Even occasionally having a digital detox should help avoid health issues associated with low-frequency EMF exposure.
