Electromagnetic Fields EMF

The lower frequency range of the electromagnetic spectrum ( 0 – 300 GHz) is referred to as electromagnetic fields (EMF). EMFs are omnipresent in our environment - whether they originate from natural sources or, as is more and more often the case, man-made sources – either as transmission of radio signals (intended) or as a by-product of the power supply of electrical appliances. That is why EMFs are often called electrosmog.
