Why Low EMF is important
So, What is EMF anyway?
EMF (Electro Magnetic Field) is one of the basic forces of nature. An EMF reading is the wavelength, or frequency of an object, and can be either ionizing or non-ionizing based on its electric charge, or magnetic energy stored within it. The earth is surrounded by a powerful Electromagnetic field, which protects us and our atmosphere from outer space, and cosmic rays. However, it is the level at which these are present and how long your exposure is that can determine whether or not EMF is harmful or not.
In fact, all matter; living or non living, produces some kind of EMF signature. However in our daily lives, EMF refers to the wavelength, or frequency of radiation that comes from our household objects and appliances. This can be one of the most important considerations, when looking to purchase an Infrared Sauna Blanket. What is the EMF output?
Generally, our household appliances emit EMF, from your fridge to your microwave, to your lights, or cellphone. It surrounds us in our home and work environments. A typical kitchen appliance has an EMF rating of 15-30 Milligauss (The unit of EMF measurement). However the main concern comes from things like generators, or high-energy overhead power lines, which the EMF levels are far higher.
Studies done throughout the 1990's and 2000's by the two main national research organisations have concluded there is zero evidence that low EMF exposure poses any health risk. These organisations are the National Research Council and the NIH.
What is Far Infrared?
Far infrared saunas heat the body not the space surrounding it. This is done from emissions of infrared heat in waves, like the heat from the sun, whereby it penetrates into the body’s tissues, muscles, and organs. Far infrared waves are generally safe. Hospitals use this same technology on newborns in the delivery room to warm the infants.
What is the EMF rating of Sauna Bliss Co Blankets?
Our Far Infrared Sauna Blankets have been independently tested to show that the EMF rating is around 0.5mg to 2.5mg when operating. Our dual carbon and ceramic infrared heating elements are shown to produce the lowest levels of EMF, and are safe. This is one of the key features of Sauna Bliss Far Infrared Sauna Blanket technology. These are specifically designed to emit lower levels of EMF than your laptop, or even Cellphone while it is on.
