EMF is short for electromagnetic fields or sometimes known as electromagnetic radiation (EMR) or electromagnetic energy (EME).  Electromagnetic fields are present everywhere in our environment – the earth, sun and ionosphere are all natural sources of EMF. 


EMF is made up of waves of electric and magnetic energy moving together (radiating) through space, which is why EMF is also referred to as Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR). Electric fields are produced by electric charges, and magnetic fields are produced by the flow of current through wires or electrical devices. Man-made Electromagnetic Fields (EMF), commonly referred to as Electrosmog, are energy waves with frequencies between 0 Hz (cycles per second) and 300 Gigahertz (trillion cycles per second). 


Electric and magnetic fields are part of the spectrum of electromagnetic energy which extends from static electric and magnetic fields, mains power frequencies (50/60Hz) through radiofrequency, infrared, and visible light to X-rays.


Electromagnetic fields are also created whenever an electrical appliance is connected to the power supply, including many in daily use such as refrigerators, hairdryers and computers.


Many electrical appliances don’t just create EM fields – they rely on them to work. Television and radio, mobile and cordless phones, remote control handsets, baby monitors and the communication systems used by emergency services all communicate using Radio Frequency EM fields. So do wireless technologies such as WiFi, which is increasingly used by computer networks, to connect to the internet.


Sources of electromagnetic fields in everyday life

Electromagnetic fields exist everywhere in the environment including our home, school and work place.  Electromagnetic fields are generated either by natural or human-made sources.


  • Natural sources of electric and magnetic fields include
  1. The Earth’s Magnetic Field   (this makes a compass point north)
  2. Lightning  (lightning generates EMF)
  3. Visible light  (we can see using optical radiation)
  • Human-made sources of electromagnetic fields include 
  1. Power lines 
  2. Radar and microwave towers
  3. Electric transformer boxes
  4. WiFi and Celltowers and many wireless emissions such as electric utility smart meters, speed enforcement, etc.
