One of the greatest threats to the health of the modern human is radiation—a form of energy that is also known as “electromagnetic waves.”
It is important that when speaking about radiation, a distinction is made between naturally-occurring radiation and artificial (manmade) radiation.
To be precise, by stating that radiation is an immense concern, I am specifically referring to manmade electromagnetic waves.
Natural radiation from the cosmos (gamma rays), the sun (visible light, ultraviolet [UV], and short infrared), from terrestrial sources (rocks, soil, etc.), and from our bodies (which contain radioactive potassium isotopes), are all examples of radiation that doesn’t produce adverse bioeffects. In fact, natural radiation is indispensable for our health and sustaining life here on earth.
Conversely, manmade radiation can cause serious harm to human wellbeing. Although a large portion of the population believes that only ionizing radiation poses risk, evidence shows that non-ionizing electromagnetic waves are…
