EMF Exposure Symptoms

Non-ionizing EMF exposure has been linked to a range of symptoms, including headaches, fatigue, sleep disturbances, dizziness, concentration difficulties and memory loss[1]. Studies have also suggested that exposure to large levels of high-frequency EMFs may damage the nervous system[1]. Other studies have found tentative support for EMF symptomatology[1].In addition, research has suggested that exposure to non-ionizing EMFs may be associated with an increased risk of cancer in children[2], although further research is needed.Common sources of non-ionizing EMFs include power lines and electrical appliances in homes and workplaces[2], as well as naturally occurring sources such as the earth’s magnetic field[2].Finally, a study conducted on rats found that exposure to a 50 Hz magnetic field generated by an EMF generator had adverse effects on embryonic development and reproductive system[4].
