You have probably heard about and have seen advertisements for Tesla and Prius electric and hybrid cars. It has been estimated that by 2040, more than half of all new car sales will be electric vehicles. This will help the world shift away from fossil fuels that contribute to pollution and global warming. But what are the health risks from the electromagnetic radiation (EMFs) emitted by electric and partially electric (hybrid) cars?
Fortunately, there is a way you can protect yourself and your family from radiation risks while moving boldly into the future of electric cars. EMF Harmony has developed a proprietary technology that neutralizes the effects of low frequency radiation from electric vehicles so that you can have complete EMF protection while driving your energy efficient car.
The Health Risks of EMF Radiation from Electric Vehicles
Do electric cars give off radiation? Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) radiation is emitted from every electronic device’s battery and circuitry – and that includes electric and hybrid cars. Radio Frequency (RF) radiation is emitted from cell phones, modems and other Wi-Fi or Bluetooth wireless devices – including many of the electronics in an electric vehicle. It has been documented in many scientific studies that EMF radiation – both ELF and RF – can cause adverse health consequences even at low levels.
The pervasiveness of electronic devices and wireless signals and their constant, long-term use is what concerns many scientists. The closer you are to sources of EMF radiation and the longer / more often you are exposed to them, the greater the chances of potential health damage.
As Joel Moskowitz, Director of the Center for Family and Community Health at the University of California Berkeley explains, much of the research about health effects related to EMF exposure in electric and hybrid vehicles has been industry funded and so potentially biased, yet some peer-reviewed studies have found that exposure to EMF radiation in electric cars does have biological effects.
He goes on to state that electric vehicles could potentially be considered carcinogenic since they emit higher levels of ELF radiation than would be considered safe by many scientists. EMFscientist.org is an organization of scientists that recognizes the dangers of EMF radiation, and they are calling on government entities around the world to protect consumers’ health.
Do Electric Vehicles Emit EMF?
All vehicles, whether electric or conventional gas powered, will emit some level of EMF. The concern with Tesla (and all electric automobiles) is that the construction increases the driver’s and passengers’ radiation exposure. Tesla cars and other hybrid or fully-electric vehicles (EVs) use battery packs that store electrical energy to run the motor, with electric circuitry all around the car.
Tesla integrates the battery pack, power inverter, charger and other electronic parts into various areas within the car. The lithium-ion batteries, which have high energy density, are under the car’s bottom frame. All of these will contribute to Tesla electromagnetic radiation emissions, most especially the inverter, which is a high emitter of EMFs.
How Much EMF Do Electric Cars Emit?
A 2016 study found that the magnetic field from hybrid and electric cars was 0.6 to 3.5 uT (microtesia – a measurement of magnetic field strength), while a gas-powered vehicle measured 0.4 to 0.6 uT. Though at the time this was within regulated exposure limits, many scientists question whether the current regulations are appropriate to safeguard health, especially over the long term. And of course e-car technology continues to advance with more and stronger sources of EMFs, and we constantly add more and more wireless gadgets to our lives that we “can’t live without”.
In addition to the ELF that is emitted from the electric battery and power system in an EV, there is additional electromagnetic radiation that adds to your exposure. Sources of these include button starters, built-in cellular capability and WiFi networks, Bluetooth devices, automobile alarms, and other dashboard controls.
How Can You Protect Against Electric Vehicle Radiation?
There is not much you can do to reduce your exposure level from electric vehicle ELF radiation, because if the EV is operating, there will always be some amount of radiation emitted. There are a few things you can do to reduce your RF radiation exposure, but the only way to fully protect yourself from EV radiation is to neutralize its effects.
Here are the things you can do to make your electric or hybrid vehicle safer:
- Minimize the use of electronic Wi-Fi/Bluetooth devices while in the car
- Turn off your car’s cellular, WiFi, and Bluetooth systems if possible
- Put your cell phone in airplane mode, or at least minimize making or taking calls while in your e-car
- Use an EMF protection product
The EMF Harmonizer Car from EMF Harmony neutralizes the energetic frequencies of EMF radiation that can cause health problems, protecting you from both the car electronics as well as the EMFs coming from outside the vehicle. It is one of the few EMF protection products available that is designed specifically for automobiles, and it is particularly useful for electric and hybrid cars.
EMF Harmony Provides Peace of Mind for Our Electric Vehicle Future
If you’re concerned about the amounts of EMF radiation that you’re exposed to daily, our proprietary bio-energetic technology is the best solution. Unlike EMF shielding products that block electromagnetic fields completely, the Harmonizer Car neutralizes EMF radiation at a sub-atomic level while also providing support to the body for optimal health in the presence of radiation. Learn more about how our technology works and see the many research studies that have been conducted that document its effectiveness.
In addition to the EMF Harmonizer Car for your EV or hybrid, EMF Harmony offers harmonizers for routers, laptops, cell phones, smart watches and other devices, in addition to whole-house systems.
