EMFs are seemingly impossible to escape these days. And at this point, we know Electromagnetic Field Radiation, or EMF radiation, can negatively impact our health in a variety of different ways. EMFs have been linked with a whole range of symptoms and illnesses. These effects range from headaches and neurological damage to fertility problems, and even to certain types of cancer.

Symptoms can begin within an hour and may last for several months. Symptoms within the first few days typically include nausea, vomiting, and loss of : Large amounts of ionizing radiation over a. Ionizing radiation can cause biological effects which are passed on to offspring through the effects of radiation on cells has been found to be dependent on the dosage of the radiation, the location of the cell in regards to tissue, and whether the cell is a somatic or germ line cell.

Generally, ionizing radiation appears to reduce methylation of DNA in cells. Origin: Comic book “logic” encourages us to believe that if you are exposed to radiation, you have a green glow and you become radioactive.
