Learning About EMF and the Reason EMF Protection is Vital

Estimated Time to Read: 2 minute

Are you wondering, “What is EMF and how can it be harmful?”

EMF stands for electromagnetic field. These fields are emitted by moving charges in electrical products and appliances. They travel in different forms, such as waves or radiation, which can enter our bodies and interfere with our own bioelectrical systems. EMF is measured in mG (milligauss). The maximum safe exposure should only be around 2.5 mG. EMF protection is extremely important and knowing what kind of EMF is transmitted by everyday appliances is a must. For example, a normal oven can emit around 300 mG, while a vacuum emits about 1200 mG of EMF. The laptops people use around the clock emit around 170mG. Every appliance differs in its mG output rate, but one thing is certain, we need EMF protection in our everyday lives.

EMF protection has not been widely thought of before. EMF can have many effects on the body. There are studies showing that EMF can agitate cell polarity, blood functions and even alter DNA thus causing DNA mutation. The reason for this is because our bodies are made up of 70% water and about 3% salt, meaning that they are able to conduct electricity because of the chemical makeup of the molecules. Our bodies are big electrical systems, and all of our body functions and nervous responses are traced from bio-electromagnetic waves in the brain. Every person can react differently to excessive EMF exposure.   The symptoms to watch for can include dizziness, nausea, depression, hair loss and headaches.

Now, obviously the cheapest and most efficient way to stay clear of EMF is to keep a safe distance from items that emit EMF. Realistically, in today’s society that is not going to happen especially with the way that everyone uses laptops and mobile devices. The number one threat of EMF exposure to humans right now is that of mobile technology. Whether it is a laptop, tablet or other mobile device, you surely use it multiple times and several hours out of the day where it is in close proximity to your body. Appliances don’t yield as much danger because they are used at safe distances from them and are not very frequently. However, this is certainly not the case with laptop computer and other mobile devices. In most cases, it’s a lot easier to add something into your daily life then it is to subtract something. So if you use laptops and similar technology devices every day, why take the risk? Invest in an EMF shield today.
