What Is EMF Protection?
These days we all carry around a variety of personal electronic devices. Yet we really don’t know exactly the kinds of damage they may do to us over the long haul.
No matter the source – cellular phones, fitbits, tablets, or laptops – they all give off different types of radiation. The abbreviation EMF stands for Electromagnetic Field, which is a catchphrase that includes Extremely Low Frequency (ELF), Radio Frequency (RF), and Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR). Our goal here at EMF Risks is to look at forms of EMF protection that have been tried and tested.
Take RF radiation for example – the kind that comes from WiFi devices and also cell phone communications. Without proper EMF protection, this type of radiation can permeate our bodies and possibly cause us harm over time.

Why You Need Protection From EMF Radiation
We will go over some of the various ways to protect yourself from EMF radiation below. But the primary way to protect yourself is to keep potentially harmful devices as far from your body as possible. Keeping a safe distance away from radiation sources is the most effective way to avoid their negative effects. Using an EMF meter will help you measure that radiation on devices around your home.
Distance is the main reason strong sources of EMF like cell towers and power lines are not as much of a threat. But with smaller devices that emit electromagnetic radiation the risk is increased because they are kept next to – or even pressed against – our bodies.
EMF Radiation Symptoms
Everyone has different tolerances for various levels and types of radiation, and factors like age and weakened immune systems can impact how you are affected. Some studies of people with hypersensitivity to electromagnetic fields have observed the following symptoms to varying degrees among those affected:
- Symptoms of the nervous system like stress, tiredness, and problems sleeping
- Symptoms in the skin, such as burning or prickling sensations, or even rashes
- Symptoms in the eyes, such as a burning sensation
- Pain in various parts of the body, such as aching muscles
- Uncommon symptoms like digestive problems, and irritation of the ears, nose, and throat
The symptom severity varied greatly from case to case. However, in some instances they were so severe the hyper sensitive individuals were hindered from normal life activities.
EMF Radiation & Cancer
There have been a number of studies done researching the link between EMF radiation and various forms of cancer. A large portion of that research has focused on cancer in children – specifically leukemia and brain tumors, which are the two most common cancers in children.
According to the National Cancer Institute, some of the studies found a correlation between EMF and increased incidences of cancer in kids, and others had mixed results. As a parent of four children, there is enough in those studies to make me concerned, and to spur me on to take proactive steps to protect my family.
Sources Of EMF Radiation
There are some sources of EMF radiation that are natural. The earth’s electrical magnetic field, for example, is the force that causes your compass needle to point north. But it is the man-made sources that are more of a concern.
Extreme low frequency EMFs come from sources such as power lines and electrical wiring within your home. They are also generated by certain electrical appliances like hair dryers, electric blankets, and even electric shavers.
Common sources of radio frequency (RF) radiation are wireless telecommunication devices, such as cellular phones, and portable devices with WiFi like laptops and tablets. Other devices like microwave ovens, cordless phones, and screens for televisions and desktop computers will also generate radio frequency radiation.
With all of these household sources, the magnetic field levels are the highest close to the source of the field, and then decrease as you move away from the source. Magnetic field levels fall off significantly at a distance of approximately one foot from most appliances. With computer screens the drop off distance is a little more – around twelve to twenty inches. But with the advent of laptops the source of potentially harmful radiation is a little too close for comfort.
EMF Protection For Home
As mentioned above, there are a number of household items that contribute to EMF radiation. And while you could take the extreme solution of ridding your home of everything that causes EMF, it is unlikely you will because it would mean pulling all the wiring from your house and going off the grid.
For those of us not willing to ditch our microwave ovens and cook over an open flame, there are other options that will offer levels of protection from the appliances and devices that are potentially harmful. Some are designed to target specific areas of your home, while others work with certain types of devices.
EMF Protection Products
One type of EMF protection device that aims to defend you against radiation generated by your home’s electrical wiring is an EMF Neutralizer Plug. These devices plug into an electrical outlet, and then claim to “re-tune” your wiring to render any EMF from your wiring harmless.
- New 2016 Edition, Updated and more Powerful
- Neutralizes the effect of man-made EMF exposure on humans
- No complicated installation procedure
- The natural coherent energy emanating neutralizes the incoherent energy from man-made EMFs, rendering it harmless to human DNA
- Will not affect cellular phone reception or transmission
Another type of device (like this eLink EMF Neutralizer) is designed to provide localized protection within a certain radius. Simply place it near your WiFi router or other source of EMF radiation, and the manufacturer says it will protect an area of up to 1500 square feet. Personally, I am a little skeptical on the effectiveness of this device. The reviews for it are mixed.
EMF Shielding Bed Canopy
For those especially sensitive to the negative effects of EMF radiation, sleeping can often be difficult. If that is you, one solution may be an EMF shielding bed canopy. Although pricey, these systems can block EMF radiation that comes at you from all angles while you sleep.
For some of the better anti-emf canopies available, check out our page on the best EMF Protection Bed Canopies.
EMF Blocking Curtains
If a bed canopy is too expensive, a cheaper alternative may be to use EMF Blocking Curtains. These curtains – or often curtain liners – can help protect your room from harmful EMF radiation coming in from the outside.

Or, if you are handy with a sewing machine, you can fashion your own anti-EMF curtains using EMF Blocking Material and sewing it into curtains, bedding, or other types of fabric items including clothing. There are a number of manufacturers providing material, but not all are created equal. This one from JWtextec is made from 55% silver fiber, which allows it to block about 99.999% of EMF radiation. You can’t get much better than that!

EMF Protection Clothing
For those with EMF hypersensitivity who aren’t into sewing their own clothes, there are attractive and comfortable EMF protective clothing options available. Manufacturers are fashioning everything from shirts to underwear and other undergarments that are designed to protect you from unwanted EMF radiation.
For a detailed review types of anti-EMF clothing available, check out our page on EMF shielding clothing.
Most of these clothing items utilize a silver-nylon blend to protect you from EMF radiation. But the percentages of silver vary from one article to the next, so be sure to read the details before picking one.
