What if you were killed by something you couldn’t see or hear? What if I told you that at this very moment you are at risk for being killed? Would you stop everything you were doing to find the silent killer, or would you just hope that the silent killer wouldn’t find you?
One woman was lucky enough to go in pursuit of this silent killer. Throughout the span of six months this woman had seen signs that were out of the ordinary in her house. One sign, the sign that lead her to finding the silent killer was the death of all the violet plants in and around her home. The woman herself was experiencing major headaches that lasted for days, tiredness, and ringing in her ears. It was her doctor that suggested it could be radio waves, such as

In order to understand how EMFs have the potential to cause negative health effects you must understand what they are. EMFs are measured by the length of their waves, the distance from the top of one crest to the top of the next (NASA). All in all, it is important to know that different EMFs have different wavelengths known as frequencies. EMFs come in a variety of frequencies. From cell phones, laptops, and microwaves to satellites, power lines, and air-conditioning, all use electromagnetic waves. Some are a natural occurrence involving magnetic and electric fields within the Earth’s rotation with the solar system. However, other EMF’s, which are the ones that are controversial, are artificial and are known as electromagnetic pollution. With usage on the rise, it is important to know what risks you can encounter when in contact with EMFs.
Research has proven that there is evidence that adverse health effects can be found in a person that is in contact with low range (longer wavelength) EMF’s, such as cell phones. The United States Federal government has provided research about EMFs through the Electromagnetic Frequencies Research and Public Information Dissemination Program (EMF-RAPID). The program ran tests that were to prove if EMFs were in fact harmful to human health. When results were returned, “A majority of the scientists on this working group voted that the
