Learn about the Health of EMFs from Electric

(NaturalNews) There has been a amount of buzz on the Internet whether or not the emergence of electric (hybrids, battery electrics, will lead to a rash of and death from electromagnetic (EMFs). These concerns are unfounded based on simple of the facts on how EMFs and electric themselves operate.

The first to understand is how EMFs are created and how resulting radiation (called affects humans. There are types of EMF and most of them some kind of EMR. 1 come in two types: ionizing and

For electric vehicles, the non-ionizing are the ones of note. Ionizing EMF comes from X-rays and high-frequency emissions, not from electrical devices.

The two types of that we use (alternating and direct or AC / DC) have different properties in the of EMF they create. AC creates larger EMFs and much EMR than does DC power.

The from an overhead power carrying AC can be quite large the field from a battery-powered is not likely to even extend the radio’s casing. The difference is the intensity and the type of EMF being The AC lines are giving off intermittent or vibratory EMR while the battery-powered gives off static EMR, is considered less dangerous.

Few studies in electric vehicle have been done and that have are either than a decade old or are not conclusive. The cited study was done in by Electric Research of State Penn. 2 for the Department of Transportation.

The does show that commuter trains are extreme of EMFs, but that even the cars and trucks of a decade ago not much worse than gasoline vehicles.

The question of how EMR an electric vehicle creates was renewed when a New York article reported on a woman’s that her hybrid was causing her to out. 3 Her story had little and is not backed up by facts. Every of electric or hybrid vehicles the one she was driving) shield their thickly. This is not so much for safety (there are no U.S. standards for EMF/EMR) as it is to keep the they might create interfering with other such as cell phones or

The fields are small to start — it turns out — to the fact the cars utilize current (DC) almost

The Internet is abounding with about how much or how little are given off by this-or-that electric What is rarely given is type of Gauss meter was to measure the EMF. This a big part in how accurate and useful the being collected is. Usually, tests are likely being with the EMF readers that electricians use for commercial and residential

These readers are the most but they are also the least for answering the question of whether the is harmful since they do not frequency-specific information, only an field reading. Other of EMFs around the vehicle sources) are also rarely for, which is another

So while EMFs are definitely a 4 it’s unlikely that biggest worries will from electric and hybrid Your cell phone, power lines, and other of more intermittent and higher-frequency are a lot more problematic.
