Why is Electromagnetic Radiation (EMF) Dangerous?

Electromagnetic Radiation

Electromagnetic Radiation (also known as Electromagnetic Fields or EMF) is the generated byproduct of electricity traveling through electronic devices.

Modern electronic devices, such as laptops, tablets and cell phones, develop a Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) radiation field that is strongest when closest to the source and reduces in intensity when moving away from the source.

Increasing the current within the source will directly increase the strength of the field.

Industry experts recommend that exposure to these fields should be less than 2 to 4 milliGauss (mG), the measurement of ELF radiation. Devices such as laptops can reach up levels of 150 mG when processing and computing. This far beyond accepted levels.

Electromagnetic Radiation can be harmful because it can often change field direction, creating a vibration within the tissues of the body.

Impact of EMF Vibrations

Vibrating EMF radiation touching the body generates heat and can cause cell mutation.

In fact, this phenomenon works the same way as a microwave by vibrating molecules together and generating enough heat to cook food.

That means long-term exposure to EMF vibration over long periods of time can lead to health concerns.

With increased temperatures, both male and female fertility can be affected. Studies over the past 20 years show that long-term exposure to high levels of EMF can also mutate cells, burn skin, cause DNA cellular breakdown and many other health problems.


Electromagnetic Radiation vibrates the human body’s cells. This vibration can not only cause the cells to heat up, but also manipulate the cells in other harmful ways.

When using mobile electronic devices like laptops, tablets and cell phones close to the body, it is best to take precautions by limiting use or utilizing EMF shielding.
