Combat Exposure to EMF

The more we can understand about EMF, the better we can evaluate its potential impacts to our health.  

Electromagnetic fields defined

Electric fields exist due to variances in voltage: the higher the voltage, the stronger will be the resultant field. Magnetic fields exist wherever electric current flows: the greater the current, the stronger the magnetic field. An electric field will exist even when there is no current flowing.

Natural sources of EMF

Most of us have only heard of EMF in reference to devices we use. However, EMF exists in nature and would be found whether humans were around to create them or not. Electric fields are produced by the buildup of electrical charges in the atmosphere associated with thunderstorms. The earth’s natural magnetic field is what moved a compass needle to orient in a North-South direction. Birds and fish are able to detect EMF for navigation during migration.

Human sources of EMF

Do you listen to the radio, watch TV, use a microwave oven or pretty much live with a cell phone in your hand? All of these devices make use of and produce EMF. The field or waves are created by the motion of the electrically charged particles. Power lines, cell phone towers and electric blankets are other sources. The EMFs travel through empty space as well as through air and other substances.

Impact of EMF on humans

Many people worry about the impact of EMF waves on those “other substances” mentioned above. After all, that includes us! The human body and brain is pretty much under constant exposure to EMF day and night. Scientists need to do more research before there is a definitive answer about how much is too much and just what those waves could be doing.

Precautionary measures

Wireless devices are potentially the biggest culprits in our exposure to EMF. It is always wise to take reasonable precautionary measures to guard against potential risks. The Q-link Cell Phone Diode is an inexpensive product designed to “clear” your own bio field helping your body resist the negative effects of EMF. It is small and easy to apply to any wireless device such as your ipod, blue tooth, handheld gaming device or cell phone.
