EMF Exposure At Home

EMFs What Are They & What Do They Do?

Electromagnetic fields (EMF) are invisible areas of energy, often referred to as radiation, that are associated with the use of electrical power and various forms of natural and man-made lighting. EMFs are everywhere, they constantly surround us, despite their ubiquitous presence in our modern environment, the nature, effects, and safety of EMFs have become subjects of extensive research and public discussion. Electromagnetic fields are produced by moving electric charges. Their propagation occurs at the speed of light and consists of electric and magnetic fields oscillating at right angles to each other. EMF is a broad term encompassing electromagnetic radiation types ranging from low-frequency radiation to gamma rays.

Types of EMF

  1. Non-ionizing - low frequency fields from everyday appliances, wireless devices, and microwave ovens.
  2. Ionizing - highest level of radiation from UV light, X-rays, and gamma rays.

Sources of EMF

EMF sources range from natural environments to man-made technologies:

  • Natural sources like sunlight and lightning storms.
  • Man-made sources include appliances, Wi-Fi, and high-voltage lines.

How Do EMFs Affect Health

The impact of EMF exposure on human health is still a topic of ongoing research and debate. The World Health Organization (WHO) has classified certain frequencies of EMF as possible carcinogens to humans. The potential health effects can be catergorized into short and long-term.

  • Short-term effects include electromagnetic hypersensitivity, presenting symptoms such as headaches, anxiety, and dizziness.
  • Long-term exposure to higher levels of RF and microwave radiation might increase the risk of cancer, although more research is needed to substantiate these claims.

EMF Protection & Safety Measures

With increasing concerns about the potential risks associated with prolonged EMF exposure, particularly from mobile phones and Wi-Fi, it is important to consider ways to mitigate these risks. There are two key effective measures:

  1. Limit Exposure - reduce the time spent on smartphones and near high emission locations
  2. Utilise Protective Devices such as Blushield

It is prudent to practice caution and control exposure, understanding and managing EMF radiation exposure is crucial in our high-tech world to maintain a healthy living environment, reducing EMF exposure can contribute to our overall well-being.


What is the safest distance from common EMF sources like smartphones or Wi-Fi routers?
Keeping a distance of at least a few feet from such devices, especially during long use, can help reduce exposure levels.
Are children more susceptible to EMF than adults?
Yes, due to their developing bodies and thinner skulls, children may be more vulnerable to the effects of EMF.
Can EMF blockers completely shield you from radiation?
EMF blockers can reduce exposure, however they also restrict your mobile and internet devices from working effectively. A better option is to use a Blushield device that emits a natural frequency that our bodies respond better to, so we don't absorb the harmful EMF.
Is there a difference in EMF exposure between urban and rural areas?
Yes, urban areas tend to have higher EMF exposure due to more dense technological infrastructure like cell towers and Wi-Fi networks.
How effective are regulatory standards in controlling EMF exposure?
Regulatory standards are designed to limit exposure to levels that are deemed safe based on current scientific evidence. However, compliance and enforcement can be limited, so the best practice is to put defensive measures in place that protect yourself and loved ones from over exposure to EMF.
