Electromagnetic radiation dangers are the subject of a great deal of controversy. Also referred to as electromagnetic field radiation (EMF), this type of radiation is non-ionizing, and not the same as the ionizing radioactivity from radioactive isotopes and X-rays that can break chemical bonds and destroy tissue. It is a safer form of radiation that emanates from power lines, substations, transformers, home wiring and even cell phones.
However, 'safer' does not mean 'safe', and while experts agree that there is a hazard, the potential for this hazard to cause harm, or the risk to human health, is subject to discussion. So what is actually agreed and not agree, and are electromagnetic radiation dangers something to worry about or not?
Symptoms of EMF Exposure
Among the symptoms reported after exposure to EMF radiation are nausea, vomiting, confusion, headache and a general feeling of unwellness. Some report mild tinnitus while others report tiredness. However, among the more serious conditions reported and studied are damage to the retina and nervous system , muscle spasms, brain tumors, leukemia  and miscarriage .
According to Dr. D. Carpenter of the School of Public Health, State University of New York, probably up to 30% of all childhood cancers arise from exposure to electromagnetic fields. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, it would be prudent to avoid electromagnetic fields. It is believed that this could be partially due to the EMF weakening the barrier between the brain and the blood, thus enabling toxins to enter the brain.
