Zero EMF Information


Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) are magnetic fields that are generated when electrical current flows. Exposure to electromagnetic fields is not a new phenomenon. However, during the 20th century, environmental exposure to man-made electromagnetic fields has been steadily increasing as growing electricity demand, ever-advancing technologies and changes in social behavior have created more and more artificial sources. Everyone is exposed to a complex mix of weak electric and magnetic fields, both at home and at work, from the generation and transmission of electricity, domestic appliances and industrial equipment, to telecommunications and broadcasting.

Is EMF Dangerous?

There is a lot of talk about EMF and its dangers, but many will not provide any evidence for their views or cite studies that cannot be found or were done on different subjects. To make an informed decision, we can point to the research results from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS).

Quote from the World Health Organization (WHO):
Conclusions from scientific research
"In the area of biological effects and medical applications of non-ionizing radiation approximately 25,000 articles have been published over the past 30 years. Despite the feeling of some people that more research needs to be done, scientific knowledge in this area is now more extensive than for most chemicals. Based on a recent in-depth review of the scientific literature, the WHO concluded that current evidence does not confirm the existence of any health consequences of exposure to low level electromagnetic fields. However, some gaps in knowledge about biological effects exist and need further research."
World Health Organization (WHO):

Quote from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS):
"Because the use of electric power is so widespread, humans are constantly exposed to electric and magnetic fields. Studies conducted in the 1980s showed a link between magnetic field strength and the risk of childhood leukemia. After reviewing more than two decades of research in this area, NIEHS scientists have concluded that the overall pattern of results suggests a weak association between increasing exposure to EMFs and an increased risk of childhood leukemia. The few studies that have been conducted on adult exposures show no evidence of a link between residential EMF exposure and adult cancers, including leukemia, brain cancer, and breast cancer. Based on these reviews, the NIEHS recommends continued education on practical ways of reducing exposures to EMFs."

At this time, the US doesn't have any specific standards for EMF levels because most studies are inconclusive. In the 1990s the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) set the following guidelines:

Occupational (working place):
Working all day: 5,000 mg
Short term (up to 2 hours): 50,000 mg
General Public:
Up to 24 hours per day: 1,000 mg
Few hours per day: 10,000 mg
