Confounding EMF Findings – Persisting apprehensions amid Swerving Expert Opinions

Filed under : News

With personal radiation meters spiking off, several people have changed residences. Newly installed Wi-Fi routers are being deemed the reasons for dizziness, collapsing and ADHD-alike signs surfacing among a number of individuals.

There are several people crusading against EMFs (low-level electromagnetic fields) of varying forms, inclusive of microwave radiations emitted from mobile phones and mobile phone towers and magnetic forces encircling power lines.

There are live instances of people who have had convalesced from EMF while several others continue to suffer from them and rendered inoperative due to it, several living in trailers due to its metallic wall constitution which people believe would shield them from EMFs.

Researchers disagree as to how EMFs could have damaging outcomes on health of human beings – or whether there are any detrimental effects at all – however that has not impeded global EMF alarm escalating new-fangled proportions particularly in Europe. Campaigners and a number of scientists from the United States have vocally sounded caveats about ‘electrosmogging’ or electromagnetic pollution increasing fatalities and ailments inclusive of autism, cancer, sterility, Alzheimer’s disease among several others.  A publishing indicated that mobile phones have set off a novel global pandemic of brain cancers.

Though the WHO, NIH among several other main health organizations have provided official declarations about EMFs appearing to cause diminutive peril.

Prevalent Usage

cell phone emfWith Wi-Fi hopping widespread amongst adults and grade school goers donning mobile phones, we exist in a vastly connected environment. A latest assessment conducted by Kaiser Family Foundation showed that on an average, classically teenagers were observed to be spending near ninety minutes daily on their mobile phones.

The outcomes of the thirteen-countries spanning study that particularly investigates mobile phones and brain cancer partly backed by the EU and partly by mobile phone manufacturing assemblage is expected to surface in concluding part of this year, however data till date fail to indicate any apparent association between mobile phones and cancer risk.

However, there are others in technical groups that have vocalised about ninety-five percent risk of childhood leukemia developing due to power lines and above ninety percent risk of brain tumors developing due to mobile phones.

To several in the technical society, it is not physically likely that miniscule quantities of energy that flows from a mobile phone, Wi-fi router or power line could have any outcome on humans. Though microwave emissions do occur from mobile phones and mobile phone towers however microwaves have comparatively longer wavelengths and hence diminutive energy. In contrast, light waves from a table lamp have greater energy as compared to microwaves emanating from a mobile phone.

Some researchers believe that such microwaves are not virtually potent enough to be causing DNA breakage – caused due to identified risks like ultraviolet rays and X-rays which are considered cancer-causers. Till the time an individual does not take in ample microwave to truly cook him/her out, the energy would be too frail to cause any harm.

Furthermore power lines have encircling very-less frequency or ELF fields have comparatively lesser potency as compared to radiation emitted from mobile phones which makes dangers from power lines lesser credible.

Laboratory investigations have revealed that rodents and other animal forms could survive contentedly in much stronger EMFs than what any mobile using human-being would ever undergo, though its effect on humans is yet to be studied in depth.

Low-level EMFs and Free Radical Production

Though several researchers believe that low-level EMFs do not have that much potency of causing direct DNA breakage, but they have enough influence to be mischief-mongers. There has been enough proof that indicates a number of cells do respond to electrical fields and several cancers continue to be inadequately comprehended.

According to some investigators a likely setting could be that low-level EMFs could elicit creation of free radicals, harmful molecules which could harm cells and probably even cause DNA breakage. A widely recognised effect of UV rays could produce free radicals, and a number of lab investigations indicate that low-level EMFs could behave analogously.
