EMFS or Electromagnetic Fields have been present with man since we first began to populate the earth. What is "new" about electromagnetic radiation is that it is no longer confined to the earth's natural grid within which humans evolved. Every person, plant and animal is living under a blanket of man-made electromagnetic smog. The term "electromagnetic smog" or "electro pollution" is often used. The Electromagnetic Spectrum includes visible and invisible light. It includes microwaves, ultraviolet and X-rays. When we talk about EMFs we generally are speaking about the invisible spectrum of non-ionizing (non tissue-heating) radiation. This includes radiation from radio frequencies, television and satellite transmission. The electromagnetic field (EMF) spectrum can be expressed in terms of energy, wavelength, or frequency.
Bio-Effects of EMF's (Electromagnetic Fields)
Electromagnetic Field Radiation is all around us and in increasing types and numbers of frequencies. Think about what life was like in terms of the amount of frequencies in the 1960s compared to now. In today's environment, the EMF spectrum is crowded. Radio stations using frequencies so close to each other that it is easy to get a 'bleed through' between stations if the tuner isn't exact. Radio frequencies are but one of the many electromagnetic fields that are radiating through us.
Dr. Robert O. Becker studied the bioeffects of EMFs, discovering that "many illnesses have been linked to exposure to electromagnetic fields: weakened endocrine and immune systems which, in turn, lead to more allergies, asthma, cancer, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, headaches, fibromyalgia, sleep disorders, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), autism, Alzheimers, Parkinsons, Environmental Illness, and a speeded-up aging process." He also found that exposure man made EMFs produce stress, a decline in immune-system competency, and changes in the genetic apparatus.
