Out of all of the threats that face you and your family, you may not realize that there is one lurking in your very home. Electromagnetic fields (EMF) surround us all of the time. The radiation they produce can be dangerous to people’s health. The radiation, just referred to as “EMF” has been known to cause cell damage at levels that are more than a billion times lower than the point at which traditional heating can harm cells. You can head down to the EMF safety store but there are some things you might want to do first.

There are two kinds of EMF radiation; low frequency EMF and radio frequency. The kind that you need to worry about is the low frequency EMF. This is not something that is produced outside of the home, coming from power lines or electrical sub stations and the like. This radiation is produced primarily by the devices and appliances in your home.
Low frequency EMF goes right through walls, floors and ceilings. It can get through almost anything from brick to concrete and metal. You can purchase at the EMF safety store various items to protect yourself such as EMF shielding fabric and EMF protection necklaces. One thing that can always stop low frequency EMF is distance. While radio frequency can travel vast distances, which is what makes it so valuable for communications, low frequency EMF can only go so far.
Ways to Protect Yourself and Your Family from EMF:
- Stay away from your appliances. If you can, stay at least three feet away from your appliances when you are using them. The further away you can get, the better. This may not always be possible so that is when you go to the EMF safety store for full body protection clothing. All of the electronic appliances in your home produce low frequency EMF. Even your cell phone charger is an offender here. As you may expect, the larger appliances you have in your home such as electric heaters, washing machines, ovens, etc. all put out the most low frequency EMF.
- When you are not using an appliance or device, turn it off! This is a great reason for a number of reasons. Many devices and appliances draw in power even when they are not being used. Your microwave, for example, is pulling in power when it is not being used. You can unplug that. When you go to bed, turn off your WiFi network. Turn all appliances off and you will cut down on the low frequency EMF in your home and lower your power bill. That is a win-win.
- Plug stuff back in. Sure, it is more convenient to use a cordless phone but the wired phone is better for your health. Use ethernet cables to connect your computers to your router. You will also find you get better up and download speeds when you are connected directly to that hardware with a wire rather than over the wireless connection.
- Know what your risks are. You can get a sense for how much radiation is in your home when you go to the EMF safety store and pick up a meter. When you cannot see, taste or smell something, you may think that it cannot hurt you. The way you can make your exposure to EMF more real is to get a meter from the EMF safety store. You may be surprised by what you find. This will also allow you to see what you can and should turn off and what devices might be safer.
When you are thinking about what you should do about EMF in your home, there are a few facts you might want to know. Research into the impact EMF has on young people have shown that short term exposure can cause concentration problems, headaches and irritability in people aged eight to 17, according to a 2010 study.
When you read about the dangers posed by low frequency EMF, it may be tempting to think there is nothing you can do but here, you are in luck. There are a number of ways to protect yourself and your family from this invisible threat.
