Reducing your exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) is an important part of protecting your health. You can begin by reducing the exposure within your own home.
Long-term, high-level EMF exposure can result in symptoms such as sleep disturbances, headaches, depression, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, changes in memory, and more.
Let’s take a look at ways you can minimize your exposure to EMFs generated within your own home. We’ll take a look at minimizing exposure to other external EMFs in the next article.
Types of EMFs
There are 4 EMF types in the average home—magnetic fields (MFs), electric fields (EFs), dirty electricity (DE) and radio-frequency/microwave radiation (RF). Each of these is a unique type of man-made, non-ionizing radiation, which means they don’t exist in the natural environment. Remediation strategies differ for each type of EMF.
Bringing wireless technologies into your home is a critical factor. Your proximity to the radiation sources is the most important element in reducing EMFs in your home. This explains why two houses built adjacent to one another, built by the same builder using similar materials, can have different EMF profiles.
