EMF Scientific Research – Important Studies

There is a significant amount of EMF scientific research which shows that cell phones, WIFI, Bluetooth and many other ‘smart devices' found in most homes emit a form of electromagnetic field called radio frequency (RF) radiation or microwave radiation, which can cause disease. In many cases EMFs are emitted by these devices even when they are on standby.

Research also shows that low frequency electromagnetic fields, as emitted by household electrical wiring, can also cause cancer and many other serious diseases.

For decades we have been told by our governments, the companies selling these devices and even the medical establishment that these EMF exposures are perfectly harmless.

General EMF Scientific Research

The argument most commonly used is that the power levels used are too low-level to cause a measurable heating effect and therefore they can’t harm you.

There is no heating effect but thousands of studies show there are many serious adverse biological effects from these exposures on our biology, including:

This 9 minute presentation by Prof. Martin Blank formerly Special Lecturer in the department of physiology and cellular biophysics at Columbia University explains some of the important biological effects of EMFs:


The adverse biological effects of EMFs have been known about for nearly 50 years as confirmed by a Naval Medical Research Institute Report dated 1971 listing 2300 studies.

A Congressional Staff Briefing in 2001 revealed that there are adverse biological effects to EMFs at levels 76000 times lower than the safety standards, you can see the full presentation here


In 2010 the results of the $25 million Interphone study, the most far reaching study of its kind run across 13 countries, found:

“regular use of a cell phone by adults can significantly increase the risk of gliomas by 40% with 1640 hours or more of use (this is about one half hour per day over ten years).”

In 2011 the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) concluded that cell phone radiation and WIFI, and other RF frequencies in the band 30 kHz – 300 GHz are possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B).

The BioInitiative Report 2012 references over 1,800 studies showing adverse biological effects from low-level EMF exposures. Subsequent updates reference thousands more studies showing evidence of adverse biological effects.

In 2016 the U.S National Toxicology Program (NTP) $30 million study found incidences of malignant gliomas (brain cancer) and Schwannomas (also known as Neuromas) in the heart of rats exposed to cell phone radiation and DNA damage.

EMF Scientific Research – Links With Disease

EMFs first impact the body in a myriad of subtle ways, the adverse biological effects discussed above, over time studies show these exposures are linked to numerous diseases, including:

Ground breaking EMF scientific research by Dr Martin Pall has found the mechanism for the non-thermal effects, via disruption of the voltage gated calcium channels (VGCC) in cells. In other words, now have an understanding as to how EMFs at even very low power levels can cause disease.

Research On How EMFs Impact Your Reproductive Health

A 2019 review paper found that Wi-Fi radiation impacts the male reproductive system, analysis of sperm following exposure to WIFI found “degenerative changes, reduced testosterone level, increased apoptotic cells, and DNA damage”. (To learn more about the particular dangers of Wi-Fi click here.)

EMF research also points to:

Research On How EMFs Impact Your Immune System

EMF exposures can cause adverse biological effects on your body including cell damage, oxidative stress, DNA damage, reduction in melatonin production and neurological changes that can weaken your immune system (other studies with mice have found similar effects) and evolve into many different illnesses. EMFs can act as an immunosuppressant, thereby making your immune system unable to respond to toxins and other attacks. This can mean that bacteria, viruses, mold, pesticides and other chemicals can easily infiltrate your body. Cell phone radiation specifically has been found to damage immune sells. The Bioinitiative Report also has an entire section on the effects of EMFs on the immune system.

Here is a listing of over 20 studies documenting a “disrupted immune function” from exposure to radio-frequency radiation.

Studies On How EMFs Impact On Our Children

In 1996, Prof. Gandhi from Utah University was the first to publish a study showing that children are more exposed to radio frequency radiation than adults. His research showed that 5-year-old and 10-year-old children have higher absorption rates than adults because their skulls and bones are thinner, their brains and bodies contain more fluid so they naturally absorb more cell phone radiation than adults.

Other research shows a 10 year old child absorbs 153% more cell phone radiation than an adult.

Research links EMF exposures to autismattention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and asthma.

5G Radiation Research

5G is the latest generation of cellular technology.  Yes you are going to be able to do even more amazing things with your cell phone but independent scientists are ringing the alarm bell as to the health effects of 5G radiation.

In this video former president of Microsoft Canada Frank Clegg explains the dangers of 5G:


In 2017, 180 doctors and scientists from 35 countries signed a petition calling upon the European Union to enact a moratorium on the rollout of 5G until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by independent scientists.

Interestingly Swiss Re, one of the world's leading insurance providers, rated 5G as a “high impact” risk for the insurance industry that may affect property and casualty claims.

Studies on millimeter wave show that 5G is going to use show that these exposures can impact the skin, several Russian studies have shown this:

emf scientific research 5G(Lebedeva NN (1993): Sensor and subsensor reactions of a healthy man to peripheral effects of low-intensity millimeter waves. Millimetrovie Volni v Biologii i Meditcine 2:5-23)

(Lebedeva NN (1995): Neurophysiological mechanisms of biological effects of peripheral action of low-intensity nonionizing electromagnetic fields in humans. Moscow, Russia: 10th Russian Symposium “Millimeter Waves in Medicine and Biology,” April, 1995 (Digest of papers). Moscow: IRE RAN)

Other studies have found effects on the eyes. An study conducted by the Medical Research Institute of Kanazawa Medical University found that 60GHz “millimeter-wave antennas can cause thermal injuries of varying types of levels. The thermal effects induced by millimeterwaves can apparently penetrate below the surface of the eye.

5G has been used as a directed-energy weapon: the ADS (active denial system)

In the video below Barrie Trower former Royal Navy microwave weapons expert, explains how 5G has been used as a crowd control weapon.


This page gives a quick overview of the EMF scientific research, I have also written many other articles which delve into the science on specific aspects of EMFs, for instance EMFs form cell phones, electrical wiring, dirty electricity.

    atomic energy is at the root of our emf problems. the human form cannot deal with it. Is Hiroshima and Nagasaki not enough proof? All our sources of electricity are sallied with atomic energy. Let’s get imaginative and stop using atomic energy

    RE: $25M study performed by the US National Toxicology Program (NTP).

    When was this NTP Study performed? I tried to find it on the NTP website and could not. You do not have dates that I could find for the Carlo and other studies. Can you send the dates, please? It is difficult to convince anyone without dates on these cited studies. Thank you. Miriam Reed, Ph.D.

    Where’s all the info on EVs or is there none. I would like to know if the people driving around in their Tesla’s are going to have health problems because of the EMFs.

  • Kaitlyn Karol said,

    Love your site! Great and well-researched info – thanks for your educational info! I have been researching this for yrs too and I am on board w/ you all on exposing the truth about this evil agenda behind emf’s and dirty electricity.

    Readers may be interested in the following report from the March 29th 2020 Cinq Sens Natural Medicine Conference in Plounévez-Lochrist.

    Key points from the conference presentation of Douglas Klapper, Phi Beta Kappa graduate of MIT (1982) and longtime practitioner of traditional Japanese medicine :

    – Traditional Japanese medicine based on pulse diagnosis is a form of subtle “vibratory” medicine that permits sensitive practitioners a unique perspective into the nature and origins of conditions being treated.

    – My experience based on treatments of patients here in Brittany needing ongoing attention but not yet symptomatic with the Covid-19 indicates a clear and dramatic transformation of alveolar cells’ receptivity to nervous stimulation.
    – The augmentation in nervous receptivity is coinciding with the extraordinary increase in outside nerve stimulation caused by G5 high frequency waves.
    Additional critical factors are:
    (1) the role played by the excessive presence in body tissues of metallic substances caused by environmental pollution in amplifying the transmission of G5 electromagnetic waves;
    (2) the role similarly played by the telluric nature of the geographical areas concerned – i.e. degree of natural ground radiation present in Wuhan, China and in affected areas in Italy, for example; and
    (3) the colder temperatures at the moment of infection which diminish respiratory function/resistance.
    The result is an inflammatory response at the alveolar level permitting the edematous condition that characterizes pneumonia.

    – Why is the Coronavirus the perfect vector for the creation of this epidemic?
    This virus in undoubtedly of bat origin, carrying with it the genetic factors intrinsic to bats that enable them to receive and internalize wave stimulation from the outside (i.e. echolocation), subsequently transmitted to humans either directly or through infected land animals and enhanced by the concurrent factors mentioned above.

    Richard Lighthouse’s website is https://www.rlighthouse.com/ LOTS of info there. Free ebooks in his store explaining how, who, where.
    He’s no flunkie> Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University and has previously worked for NASA.
    His research reveals the fact that all of us are being tracked via microwaves. This link takes you to where he discusses that: http://projectcamelotportal.com/2019/02/05/richard-lighthouse-author-everyone-is-being-tracked/
    These waves should be measurable. If you’ve come across some unexplainable frequencies, this might give you some answers.
    Thank you, Mr. Burrell for all of your research, help, advice and tenacious digging. You are greatly appreciated!!!

    In this research, we show that 5G millimeter waves could be absorbed by dermatologic cells acting like antennas, transferred to other cells and play the main role in producing Coronaviruses in biological cells. DNA is built from charged electrons and atoms and has an inductor-like structure. This structure could be divided into linear, toroid and round inductors. Inductors interact with external electromagnetic waves, move and produce some extra waves within the cells. The shapes of these waves are similar to shapes of hexagonal and pentagonal bases of their DNA source. These waves produce some holes in liquids within the nucleus. To fill these holes, some extra hexagonal and pentagonal bases are produced. These bases could join to each other and form virus-like structures such as Coronavirus. To produce these viruses within a cell, it is necessary that the wavelength of external waves be shorter than the size of the cell. Thus 5G millimeter waves could be good candidates for applying in constructing virus-like structures such as Coronaviruses (COVID-19) within cells.

  • Laura Toppazzini-Bazan said,

    Hi I’ve been measuring the frequency of RF on my bed. When I use the trifield meter it has different measurements all the time. Especially if I hold it or if I place it on my bed. Which is the most accurate way to read it?

  • Lloyd Burrell said,

    Hi Laura
    When reading RFs in your bedroom I suggest taking readings principally where you lay your head… exposures fluctuate which is why the readings fluctuate… you want to note down the highest reading (the peak reading, top left on the display) and do this at 3 intervals in the day (morning, noon and night) over several days. Then take the average of those readings. I’ve done a full review of the Trifield here https://www.electricsense.com/emf-meter-trifield-tf2/ I also strongly recommend following the instructions laid out in the user manual (you can download from that page also).

  • Laura Toppazzini-Bazan said,

    Thanks so much for your response. I noticed a big difference when I’m actually holding the meter and when I place it directly on the bed. Should I be holding the meter or placing it directly on the bed where I have my head?
