“What are EMFs?” and
Other Common EMF Questions


What are man-made EMFs?

Man-made EMFs (or Electro-Magnetic Fields) are artificial sources of radiation found in your homes and community.

There are four specific types of this artificial radiation that people should be aware of. Click the links below to learn more in-depth about each:


Are EMFs dangerous to myself and my family?

We believe there is biological risk with elevated and continuous man-made EMF exposure.

There’s no smoking gun (as with cigarettes, for example), but more and more studies are coming out showing the possibility of dangerous health effects.

The most recent findings of biological risk from man-made EMFs came from a $30 million dollar National Toxicology Program study that showed increased cancer occurrence in mice from exposure to only 2G and 3G cell phone RF fields.

More EMF Health Studies can be found in our appendix.


What produces man-made EMFs?

Unfortunately, there are quite a few internal and external sources of EMFs, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

We’ve written over 15 EMF Field Guides and EMF Step-by-Step Guides to give you a solid overview of common EMF sources found in every room in your home and other places you frequent.

We also provide steps to remove, shield and replace these EMF sources.


Can I test for EMFs myself?


With a good meter and guidance provided by this website or by an EMF consultant, you can definitely do the EMF testing yourself.
