FAQs: What is RF energy, FAQ 5
What is RF Energy, and is it dangerous? RF energy or “RF Frequency” refers to the “rate of oscillation in the range of about 3 kHz to 300 GHz, which corresponds to the frequency of radio waves, and the alternating currents which carry radio signals.” In other words, this is energy emanating from your wireless router, computer monitor, wireless phones, and dozens of other standard household items and appliances. This energy is whizzing around your house all day, passing through you and anyone else in the vicinity.
As for its dangers, there are those who suffer from electromagnetic hypersensitivity. There are many published studies that recount the experience of individuals throughout the world who claim that exposure to these fields, in doses less than legally allowable, causes a great number of symptoms, ranging from an allergy-like reaction, to symptoms so debilitating some people are virtual prisoners in specially constructed homes designed to minimize exposure.
