Harmfulness of the electromagnetic field
Many years ago it was affirmed that electromagnetic radiation
is harmful to the human organism. Many people associate the
term "electromagnetic radiation" with radio waves or
X-rays. This range of electromagnetic waves is studied most
thoroughly; the harmfulness of these waves is quite well
documented. A wide description of the problem can be found
e.x. at the EMF Health Report.
- Rarely, although lately more and more frequently, it is
spoken about the harmfulness of the electromagnetic field
of low frequency. Virtually all receivers of the electrical
installation emit radiation at the frequency of 50 Hz.
Such radiation accompanies us all the time, at home and at
work - it is the inherent companion of the civilisation.
All the time, 24 hours a day, every one of us is under its
influence. The sources of such waves are e.g.:
- electrical engines, therefore vacuum cleaners, washing machines, electrical food processors, air conditioners, drills etc.;
- transformers, which can be found in every electical device - radios, cassette and CD players, computers;
- picture tubes of televisions and monitors.
This short list does not exhaust all the sources of
electromagnetic radiation. Anyway only on its basis it is
possible to discover, that we constantly live in electromagnetic
smog. The locations which are especially endangered can be
found using the magnetic field meter - ECOMETER.
Sometimes a high level of radiation can be found despite the
lack of visible radiation sources. Usually it is caused by the
currents wandering in the ground, often connected with water
veins (they are good electricity conductors).
Such currents are twice as dangerouus, since two threats
accumulate - caused by the stream itself and the
