Are you keeping away from EMF Hotspots?

Did you know that certain areas of your home and work have powerful electromagnetic fields (EMFs)that can inflict severe damage to cellular DNA? How can you protect yourself and your love one? There are many devices out there that can measure the strength of EMFs around you.

So what can possibly generate EMFs at home? Every electrical device has a potential to radiate EMFs including those devices that are near you while you sleep. For example if your bed is too close to an electric alarm clock, you could be exposed to EMFs or a TV set that sends signal through a wall adjoining to your bedroom. There are also EMFs emissions from electric toothbrushes, shavers, microwaves ovens, photocopy machines, computers, cell phones, cordless phones, and high-intensity electrical wiring.

How can we protect ourselves from these emissions? Is it a real threat and are we paying a big price to have the latest electrical gadget around us?

Thanks for the link Diane! I will do additional research on this to ensure I am also keeping away from EMFs around the house and near my bed. I wonder how safe we are in public, in a mall for example where most people are on cell phones shooting EMFs through our brains! Pretty scarry stuff. I'd like to go back to the old cave days....

Virginia, this is really interesting to me.

I have always known that there are issues with EMFs under power lines, and I have heard advice about not sleeping under electric blankets, etc. It makes sense to me that every single electric item creates its own small electromagnetic field. But as a person who spends their workday at a computer, with a lamp on my desk, a cell phone and Ipod within reach, printer a few feet away, and a television within a stone's throw, it's interesting to me to think of all the smaller EMFs I might be living in throughout the day.

This is a good summary of the studies and questions that have been asked about EMFs in recent years:
