What is EMR?



What is EMR?

Electromagnetic radiation is a term used to describe a stream of energy-bearing particles that travels outward from an electromagnetic source. The energy in these streams can vary extensively in power, and is measured by the electromagnetic spectrum. Electromagnetic radiation can be beneficial, harmless or extremely dangerous to humans, depending on the source, level of radiation, and duration of exposure.
 
There are both natural and man-made sources of electromagnetic radiation. The sun, for instance, is an intense source of radiation that can have both positive and negative effects on living things. The sun also produces both visible and invisible electromagnetic streams. Ultraviolet rays from the sun are invisible and cause sunburn and skin cancer if overexposure occurs. A rainbow, however, is a visible and harmless part of the electromagnetic effect caused by the sun, as human eyes detect the visible wavelengths of light as different colors.
 
Man-made sources of electromagnetic radiation include X-rays, radio waves, and microwaves. Microwaves and radio waves are used by humans to power machines and increase communication abilities. Cell phones, radios, microwave ovens, and radar all create electromagnetic radiation. This has lead to some concern that the growing prevalence of electromagnetic devices will lead to large increases in illnesses caused by radiation, such as cancer.
 
The electromagnetic radiations are being utilized as technological enhancements to the mankind all across the world, the most popular and common gadget that has taken the world by storm is the Mobile Phone.

 

Ways EMR (Electromagnetic Radiation) Affects our Health
 
Mobile phones and Mobile Phone Towers constantly emit hazardous Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR). Mobile phones use electromagnetic radiation in the microwave range. This radiation penetrates our head and the level of penetration depends on how close is your head to the source or radiation. Today mobile phones have become an integral part of our day to day life and have become the most common medium for our exposure to electromagnetic radiation (EMR).
 
During the reception or transmission of signal, the radiations emitted by the mobile phones increases by a thousand times, and the sensitive tissue of our ear and brain get continuously exposed to these harmful radiations during our conversation. The relentless use of mobile phones has led to health hazards like memory loss, headache, dizziness, nausea, impaired vision and even brain tumor in worst case.
