On the difference between Man-made and Natural Electromagnetic Fields/Radiation, in regard to Biological Activity
Dr. Leendert Vriens
It is explained why the weak low-frequency (LF) electromagnetic fields (EMF) from high-voltage lines and domestic appliances and the radio-frequency (RF) EMF/radiation from wireless communication can induce biological effects in our body while the much stronger natural electromagnetic radiation (EMR), such as from the sun, cannot do so. As far as physics is concerned there are two reasons:
1. The man-made LF EMF and RF EMF/radiation yield macroscopic field strengths, while the field strength of the natural EMR is equal to zero at all frequencies, and
2. The man-made LF magnetic fields and RF EMF penetrate into our body and the RF EMF are largely absorbed there, while most of the natural EMR from the sun does not penetrate through our skin.
The man-made EMF thus induce currents, resonant interactions and interferences – involving charged and polar particles and surfaces and magnetic particles - in our body. These interactions and the absorption can lead to harmful biological processes and to interference with the biological processes already going on.
The natural EMR, although having a much higher intensity, does not have any effect inside. Most of it does not penetrate our skin and the part that penetrates has field strengths equal to zero and therefore does not exert any force.
Quote (p.6): Saying that the RF radiation from wireless communication cannot do any harm because the individual photon energies are not large enough is the same as saying that a tsunami cannot cause any harm because the individual water molecules don’t have enough energy.
