On a daily basis, people are exposed to different types of radiation. It’s either from the television, radio, mobile phone or signals from the GPS. Radiation passes through the human body and certain types pose hazards to the health of a person.
Electromagnetic radiation, in particular, has been in existence since the universe was created. Its most common form is the light. In our natural environment, electromagnetic fields can be found everywhere but cannot be seen by the human eye.
Specific electromagnetic radiation forms have an adverse effect on human health as reported by the World Health Organization. They are believed to be among the causes of cancer. Examples of this are the electromagnetic waves emitted by a microwave oven, an x-ray machine, gamma rays, cell phones, power lines and transmission towers.
