EMF stands for electromagnetic frequencies or electromagnetic fields and they are very common. EMFs are emitted by all electrical objects – some more than others. But are EMFs dangerous?
EMFs are also referred to as radiation because they include frequencies like X-rays, infrared and visible light. Some of these are harmful, some aren’t. Some, like sunlight, usually aren’t harmful but getting too much – sunburn – can be.
So “are EMFs harmful?” can be a tricky question to answer.
EMFs from your phone, also known as mobile phone radiation, have been found to harm the body by damaging cells and DNA.

Mobile phone radiation has been shown by many scientific studies to be a factor in male infertility. Some experts described mobile phone radiation as “cooking” sperm.
Sperm are complicated and have a tough job to do. There are lots of things that can go wrong: from sperm that can’t swim to ones that have faulty DNA. Normally their sheer numbers make up for this but sperm counts are dropping all over the world.
One big factor is that EMF waves are harmful to sperm and the increase in mobile phones has caused an increase in infertility, along with other lifestyle changes.
So are EMFs dangerous? They can be and more research is needed on what our mobile phones could be doing to our body, especially with young people. EMFs are harmful to sperm and contribute to male infertility.
