Top 20 Sources of Home EMFs

Are there really dangerous levels of EMF radiation in my home?  Unfortunately, the answer is “yes”.  But because EMFs are invisible and odorless, oftentimes, it is not until the body has become ill before one takes action.

To better understand the EMFs that you and your family may be unknowingly swimming in, use the checklist below to assess your current home environment to identify EMF risk areas.  This list is categorized by the type of EMF emitted.  This article introduces EMFs and the resulting health damage risks in more depth.
