From what I understand, you can measure EMF in milligaus based on the distance from the appliance or source of the EMF. From 1 foot away, a CFL bulb has a 1 milligaus field. By comparison, here are some other common EMF sources and their ratings:
1.32 5' from TV, on, 2' above floor
1.64 Curling iron, on
1.88 Electric blanket after warmed up
5.5 Cord type electric drill, on
6.12 Electric blanket, first turned on
6.28 On computer keyboard at home
6.88 5' from TV, on, on floor
8.76 15' from transformer
9.2 25' from 161,000V line
11.6 Directly under 161,000V line
12.8 In front of micro-wave oven, off
19.6 Desk fan, off
26.8 1' from hair dryer, on
28.8 On top of TV, on
44.4 On range top, off
53.6 Portable electric razor, on
128 In front of micro-wave oven, on
180 On range top, on
648 Next to hair dryer, on
896 Bedroom fan, on, next to motor
This is all from information I just located on the internet, so I cannot vouch for the credibility of all of it.
Hi! I have some ?'s about EMF's
#1 What in the house emits emf's?
#2 Which of these emits the highest levels of emf's?
#3 In addition to turning off electrical things that emit emf's, does it help even more to unplug them?
#4 Do phones that have cords emit emf's?
#5 Is my child exposed to emf's if I nak?
#6 What else besides turning off sources of emf's in my home can I do to lower the emf's in my home?
