Could Your Electric Car be Harming Your Health? The Surprising Effects of EMF Exposure.

If you’re like most people, you probably don’t give much thought to the electromagnetic fields (EMF) emitted by your car. After all, cars have been a part of our daily lives for over a century, and we’ve become accustomed to the hum of the engine and the occasional radio wave interference. However, recent studies have shown that the EMF emitted by cars can have a significant impact on our health.

So, what exactly are EMF? Electromagnetic fields are invisible areas of energy that are present wherever electricity is used. They’re generated by everything from cell phones and Wi-Fi routers to power lines and yes, even your car. These fields are made up of both electric and magnetic components, and they’re measured in units of MicroTesla (µT) or Volts per Metre (V/m).

While the effects of EMF exposure on human health are still being studied, there is growing concern that prolonged exposure to high levels of EMF can be harmful. The World Health Organization has classified EMF as a possible carcinogen, meaning that it has the potential to cause cancer in humans.

Additionally, studies have linked EMF exposure to a range of other health problems, including headaches, fatigue, and even infertility.

So, what does this mean for car owners? Well, if you spend a lot of time driving or riding in a car, you may be exposing yourself to high levels of EMF. This is because the electrical systems in cars generate strong EMF fields, particularly when the engine is running. And if you’re driving an electric or hybrid vehicle, you may be exposed to even higher levels of EMF, since these cars use large batteries and powerful electric motors.

So, what can you do to protect yourself from EMF exposure in your car? The first step is to have an EMF survey done. This involves measuring the levels of EMF in your car using specialized equipment. An EMF survey will give you a clear picture of how much EMF you’re being exposed to, and where the highest levels are located.

If the results of your EMF survey show that you’re being exposed to high levels of EMF, there are several steps you can take to reduce your exposure. One of the simplest things you can do is to avoid spending too much time in your car. If possible, try to carpool or use public transportation instead. You can also turn off any unnecessary electrical devices in your car, such as the stereo or the air conditioning.

If you’re driving an electric or hybrid vehicle, there are a few additional steps you can take to reduce your exposure to EMF. For example, you can try to avoid sitting directly above the battery or the electric motor. You can also install special EMF shielding in your car to reduce the amount of EMF that gets through to the passenger compartment.

Ultimately, the best way to protect yourself from the harmful effects of EMF exposure is to be proactive. If you’re concerned about your exposure to EMF, don’t wait until you start experiencing symptoms to take action. Schedule an EMF survey today, and take steps to reduce your exposure if necessary. Your health is too important to leave to chance.

Thank you EMF Inspectrions Ltd for doing our Low Frequency EMF Survey. We had Galin who came to do the survey and he was brilliant. Not only was he polite but very informative and knew his stuff. We were in the process of purchasing a propery next to an electrical sub-station and was worried that the EMF could be penetrating the property. Galin went round the entire property inside and out, down the alley and in the garden and took readings. He explained the different levels of readings and reassured us that all of our readings were below the government guidelines. We are so pleased with the service. We booked on a Monday and had the survey on Wednesday (we could of had Tuesday if we wanted). The report was with us on Thursday which is brillianty written out to explain the readings for people who are not "experts". Would highly recommend using EMF Inspections Ltd to anyone. Thank you again!
