What You Can Do

Studies have not produced a consensus about any health benefits from changing exposure to extremely low frequency magnetic fields. But, if you feel reducing your EMF exposure would be beneficial, you can increase your distance from magnetic field sources and/or limit the amount of time you are exposed at home or at work.

For instance, you can place electric clocks or radios away from the head of your bed. Increasing your distance from these and other appliances such as televisions, computer monitors, microwave ovens and power lines can reduce your EMF exposure.

You can also reduce your EMF exposure by limiting the time you spend using personal appliances such as hair dryers, electric razors, heating pads and electric blankets. You may also want to limit the time you spend using electric cooking appliances.

It is not known whether such actions will have any impact on your health.
