What is Electromagnetic Radiation?

Electromagnetic Radiation can be defined as a form of energy that is produced by the movement of electrical charged particles travel through the matter or vacuum or by oscillating magnetic and electric disturbance. The magnetic and electrical field comes at 90° to each other and the combined waves move perpendicular to both electric and magnetic oscillating fields occurring the disturbance.

  • Electromagnetic radiation is a phenomenon that takes the form of self-propagating energy waves as it travels through space (vacuum or matter). It consists of both electric and magnetic field components.

  • Everyday life is pervaded by artificially made electromagnetic radiation.

Sources of radiation:

EMF exposure intensity decreases as you increase your distance from the object that’s sending out waves.
Some common sources that emit electromagnetic radiations are:

  • Microwave ovens

  • Computers

  • Smart meters

  • Wireless (Wi-Fi) routers

  • Cellphones

  • Bluetooth devices

  • Power lines

Effects of Electromagnetic Radiation on Human Health

  • The study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health shows that radiation from mobile signals interferes with the cellular mechanism to cause DNA damage, neurological disorders.

  • Higher stress & fatigue – Adults are experiencing higher stress nowadays and this can also lead to increase cholesterol, blood sugar, risk of cardiovascular.

  • Poor sleep quality – Anxiety disorder is commonly found in people having poor sleep quality and in the long run, this can trigger mania and bipolar depression.

  • Headache – Constant headache leads to migraines, irritation, lower productivity, and creativity at the workplace.

  • Weakened immune system – Being constantly surrounded by radiations weekends our immune system and due to which we are prone to always catch a cold, our tummy is often upset, wounds are slow to heal and feel tired all the time.

  • Fertility issues.

  • Short-term memory loss.

  • High Blood Pressure

The Top Radiation Gadgets You Use Everyday

What’s your favorite electronic gadget? It might be your mobile phone, smartwatch or fitness tracker. If you’re like most people, you probably own a laptop or tablet. And if you and your family are fond of devices, your home may be bursting with smart appliances in the kitchen, Wi-Fi enabled home entertainment systems and personal assistants like Siri or Alexa. But did you know that these helpful tools emit EMF radiation that may be harmful to your family’s health?

In this article, we’ll tell you about the top radiation gadgets that have become an essential part of your daily routine, what the dangers are from EMF and how to get radiation protection for yourself and your loved ones.

What Is EMF Radiation?

EMF is an electromagnetic field that is created by electric charges, and EMF produces radiation. There are different frequencies of EMF. High-frequency electromagnetic (EMF) radiation includes x-rays, gamma rays and ultraviolet. This ionizing radiation is extremely dangerous for people, causing cell damage and cancer. Non-ionizing EMF radiation, such as radiofrequency (RF), is emitted from many household devices like smartphones, Wi-Fi routers, laptops, tablets, home assistants, baby monitors and fitness wearables. These devices can also pose health risks, due to the long hours of use and proximity to the body.

What Are The Health Risk of EMF Radiation?

Many scientific studies have found significant negative effects. EMF health effects can include memory impairment, behavioral issues, headaches, hearing loss, oxidative stress, sleep disorders, increases in heart rate and cancer. These health risks are especially acute in children since their cells are not yet fully developed. There is also the question of frequent use over a long period of time, the effects of which are not entirely known.

Which Household Appliances Produce Electromagnetic Shield?

Many commonly used household appliances produce electromagnetic (EM) fields, whether or not they’re wireless devices. In addition to your computers, smartphones and routers, this also includes microwave ovens, cordless phones, electric toothbrushes and razors, hair dryers, coffee machine, toaster and induction hobs. Even the conventional electric current in your house emits EMF radiation, and if not wired correctly it can be significant. Of course, all Wi-Fi enabled “smart appliances” produce EMF

Radiation Emitting Gadgets You Use Everyday

While some may say that the amount of EMF shielding from non-ionizing radiation sources is not enough to be seriously damaging, the problem lies in how much we use these devices. If you think about all the radiation emitting gadgets that you use daily, for long periods of time—laptops, tablets, Wi-Fi routers, earphones, wireless keyboards and mice, microwave ovens, fitness trackers and other wearables—the danger becomes clear.

What Everyday Item Emits The Most Radiation?

It is possible to measure EMF radiation with an EMF meter, so you can always purchase or borrow one to find out for yourself. Looking at typical items found in the home that emit electromagnetic radiation, a 2.4 or 5 GHz wireless router has the highest level at the device. Of course your cell phone is a big emitter as well, especially when on a call. Laptop, tablet, and computer EMF radiation are all similar, but less than a WiFi router or cell phone. Cordless phones and baby monitors are significant emitters of EMFs, as are some wireless “smart home” devices like thermostats, TV’s, appliances, etc. Bluetooth headphones are also a concern, because although they emit lower RF radiation, they are worn right on the head and often for long periods of time.
