Are electromagnetic fields (EMFs) dangerous to human health? Am concerned due to local power co's new smart meters being installed on homes in my area

I say you're safe: The "independent medical thinkers" have been alleging horrible health problems caused by these fields for four decades without a single decent study that isn't loaded with recall bias. There's no animal model, no real theory as to why they're dangerous, and the field generated by your beating heart affects you more. By now, the NIH research piranhas would have found any danger that's real. ...Read more

Exposed To Irritants (Definition)

Exposure to smoke, irritants, or volatile inhalants (chemical fumes) means a person has spent time around these airborne particles. Usually, symptoms from exposure to smoke, irritants, or volatile chemicals occur in the eyes, ...Read more

Can electromagnetic fields (not sure of correct term) generated by power company smart meters on homes cause cancer or other illness?

Can electromagnetic fields (not sure of correct term) generated by power company smart meters on homes cause cancer or other illness?

No: A one time it was felt that homes built in viscinity of High voltage tension lines brought in by overhead power cables might induce tumors in a way that it was thought that cell phones could induce brain tumors. These were speculative and have not been confirmed. ...Read more

With so many electric cars and hybrid cars on the road, are the drivers affected by the motors' electromagnetic fields the way cell phones affect us?

With so many electric cars and hybrid cars on the road, are the drivers affected by the motors' electromagnetic fields the way cell phones affect us?

Doubtful: Good question, but because the power is being used directly, not to transmit and receive like a cell phone, it is not likely to affect people anymore than the generator does in a typical gas-powered car. ...Read more

How accurate are quantum electromagnetic resonance health analyser?

How accurate are quantum electromagnetic resonance health analyser?

Mystery black box: The description of cells giving off weird magnetic fields, accuracy proved by "a hundred million cases", and not a single scientific publication or any description that makes sense tells me this is simply a health fraud. If you're interested in energy / integrative medicine, get with a real, evidence holist such as some of my HealthTap teammates. It's a fascinating area. ...Read more

How can I know if I am allergic to electromagnetic waves! please help!?

How can I know if I am allergic to electromagnetic waves! please help!?

Relax: Allergic reactions are triggered by proteins such as those found in foods, venom (bees and yellow jackets), pollens, molds, dust mite, latex, medications, etc. Electromagnetic waves do not contain proteins so they will not trigger an allergic reaction. ...Read more

How does radioactivity and electromagnetic radiation induce cancer?

How does radioactivity and electromagnetic radiation induce cancer?

Does; doesn't: Radioactivity produces ionizing radiation that damages the genes. I would urge you to ignore "pop" / "scare" stories about electromagnetic fields causing cancer. They're based on anecdotes and retrospective questioning which generates junk findings. There's no obvious mechanism and the electricity of your beating heart is a stronger exposure than nearby power lines. ...Read more
