Understanding EMF: Risks, Sources, and Health Implications
Electromagnetic frequency, often referred to as EMF is an important topic. I don’t know if you’ve heard of it, but I’m going to share a basic overview in a two-part series here to help you understand it, because it can be a little bit mysterious, and a little bit overwhelming. Some people think it’s scary – so what should I be worried about? I’d like you to be a little bit more informed and understand the topic.
So, let’s get started. Basic overview: almost all forms of energy that we interact with is EMF or electromagnetic frequency. Some people call it electromagnetic field, and that’s basically the transfer of energy. It’s a term called radiation. So it can be a little scary because if you’re thinking radiation, like a nuclear power plant, that is certainly one form of it, but most of us are not going to come in contact with that. So when we say radiation, we’re mostly talking about the everyday, day-to-day radiation. Like even if you turn on your stove to heat up a pan, that’s radiation. That’s the gas being burned off and putting the energy into whatever you’re cooking on the stove, right from radiation. So don’t be too scared off by that at first, but just understand what’s going on.
