Electric & magnetic fields
Electric and magnetic fields (EMF) exist wherever there is a flow of electricity like in:
Wiring in our houses, offices, and schools
Electrical appliances and equipment (such as hairdryers, refrigerators, and computers)
The issue of possible health effects from EMF exposure has been the subject of much study and debate and scientists continue to study it.
