What are EMFs?

Power lines, electrical wiring, and appliances all produce electric and magnetic fields. EMFs are invisible lines of force that surround any electrical device. Electrical and magnetic fields have different properties and possibly different ways of causing biological effects. Note that while electric fields are easily shielded or weakened by conducting objects (e.g., trees, buildings, and human skin), magnetic fields weaken with increasing distance from the source.

Even though electric and magnetic fields are present around appliances and power lines, more recent interest and research have focused on potential health effects of magnetic fields. This is because epidemiological studies have found associations between increased cancer risk and power-line configurations which are thought to be surrogates for magnetic fields. No such associations have been found with measured electric fields.

Effects shown for electromagnetic radiation

( especially radio and radar signals):

Such signals have been shown to:

  • Alter brain activity, including EEG and reaction times, memory loss, headaches, fatigue and concentration problems, dizziness (the Microwave Syndrome), Gordon (1966), Deroche (1971), Moscovici et al. (1974), Lilienfeld et al. (1978), Shandala et al. (1979), Forman et al. (1982), Frey (1998).
  • Impair sleep and learning, Altpeter et al. (1995), Kolodynski and Kolodynska (1996)
  • Increase permeability of the blood brain barrier (a mechanism for headache), Frey et al. (1975), Alberts (1977, 1978) and Oscar and Hawkins (1977).
  • Highly significant Increased permeability of the blood brain barrier for 915 MHz radiation at SAR =0.016-0.1 (p=0.015) and SAR = 0.1-0.4 (p=0.002); Salford et al. (1994).
  • Alter GABA, Kolomytkin et al. (1994).
  • Increase neurodegenerative disease including Alzheimer's Disease, Sobel et al. (1995, 1996), Savitz et al. (1998a,b)
  • Alter blood pressure and heart rhythm (heart rate variability) and Heart Disease, Forman et al. (1986), Hamburger, Logue and Silverman (1983), Bortkiewicz et al. (1995, 1996, 1997) and Szmigielski at al (1998), Savitz et al. (1999)
  • Increase the Suicide Risk, Baris and Armstrong (1990), Perry et al. (1991), Van Wijngaarden et al. (2000).
  • Impair the immune system Quan et al. (1992), Dmoch and Moszczynski (1998), Bruvere et al. (1998)
  • Reduce sperm counts, Weyandt et al. (1996)
  • Increase miscarriage and congenital abnormalities, Kallen et al. (1982), Larsen et al. (1991), Ouellet-Hellstrom and Stewart (1993). Ouellet-Hellstrom and Stewart found a a significant dose-response, p<0.005.
