Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) and Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR)

The ever increasing use of electricity and wireless devices has now caused the human body to be radiated by human made electromagnetic fields more than ever before. Envirodetox aims to address all potential sources of electromagnetic fields (EMF) and electromagnetic radiation (EMR) in your home or workplace. A detailed report will then be collated to understand and minimise your exposure to EMF and EMR.

Electromagnetic fields (EMF) are defined according to wavelength and frequency, ranging from large wavelengths such as radiowaves to very short wavelengths such as X-Rays. Envirodetox focuses on non ionising EMF in the Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) wavelength range and the higher frequency microwave range. This higher frequency wavenlength band is also referred to as Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR).

Extremely low frequency EMF fields emanate from such sources as the electric power supply, the meter box and electrical appliances while electromagnetic radiation (EMR) emanates from such things as mobile phone towers, mobile phones, cordless phones, WiFi, wireless routers and any other wireless devices.

There is conflicting evidence from studies relating to electromagnetic fields, causing much debate and controversy. The large volume of research though that supports health related issues, requires an understanding of the potential health effects of electromagnetic fields and implementation of means to reduce potential exposure.

As a result of EMF studies the Leukaemia Foundation of Australia advises prudent avoidance. This includes avoiding spending any time near high voltage powerlines or mobile phone base towers and avoiding where possible at a moderate cost and minimum inconvenience homes, schools, playgrounds and other locations frequented by children.

There is also a small portion of the population that are more sensitive to Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) which is often referred to as Electrical Hyper Sensitivity (EHS). People with EHS can suffer headaches, difficulty sleeping, poor concentration, learning difficulty, fatigue, anxiety, depression, ringing in the ears and muscle and joint pains.

The Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Audit

Envirodetox offers a comprehensive Electromagnetic field (EMF) and Electromgantic radiation (EMR) testing service in Perth and regional Western Australia. Utilising a triaxial gauss meter, elfix detector, body voltage kit and high frequency analyser all sources of magnetic fields, electric fields and high frequency fields are recorded in real time with a report provided. This report will then provide detailed recommendations to eliminate or reduce electromagnetic field and electromagnetic radiation exposure levels in line with the building biology precautionary approach.

Common sources of both low and high frequency EMFs that are tested for include;

  • Electrical power lines especially high voltage powerlines.
  • All things electrical including sub stations, transformers, appliances, wiring in your building, power boards and lighting.
  • Train lines.
  • Lap tops and tablets.
  • Mobile Phone Towers.
  • Mobile phones and cordless phones.
  • Wireless routers and mobile broadband options such as USB routers and WiFi routers.

Building Biology guideline levels exist at levels where there is no evidence of human health effects from EMF/EMR. For an affordable EMF/EMR detection consultation please call Mark on 0402704383. Packages can be tailored to any budget so apply the precautionary approach to EMF and EMR today.
