How does radiation given off by electronics affect your health?

    There is no doubt that electronics give off radiation. The most commonly discussed is cell phones, especially because of the close proximity to the body it is held and used.

    Since a lot of this technology is new and long term studies have often proved to be inconclusive, there is still a school of thought that defends the notion that Electro Magnetic Fields (EMF) are hazardous to humans.

    According to an article on, there have been numerous studies conducted showing evidence of dangerous effects. “By 1990, over one hundred studies had been conducted worldwide. Of these, at least two dozen epidemiological studies on humans indicated a link between EMFs and serious health problems.”

    According to an article on electromagnetic radiation and health, the opposite rings true: “The preponderance of evidencehousehold current does not constitute a short or long term health hazard, and whilst some biophysical mechanisms for the promotion of cancer have been proposed (such as the electric fields around power lines attracting aerosol pollutants), none have been substantiated. Nevertheless, some research has implicated exposure in a number of adverse health effects. These include, but are not limited to, childhood leukemia, adult leukemia, neurodegenerative diseases (such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), miscarriage, and clinical depression.” suggests that the low-power, low-frequency, electromagnetic radiation associated with…”

    So while the results are inconclusive, more results are likely to be published in recent years since this is such a hot topic. It does seem to me, however, that anything unnatural that we are exposed to could have an affect on our body’s chemistry, whether for the better or worse and care should be taken to monitor the levels of unnecessary radiation we expose ourselves to.
