EMF and Appliances in Your Home
Electrical appliances produce toxic electromagnetic fields (EMFs). These fields can layer, one upon the other, creating a harmful level of radiation. That’s why the kitchen is a hotspot for harmful EMFs…but other rooms are affected, too. The mG exposure at three feet is up to three mG for a blender, up to four mG for a washing machine, up to six mG for a hair dryer or a television, and up to 40 mG for a vacuum cleaner.

Danger from Microwaves
Recognizing the dangers of microwave ovens, the government has set strict standards for the amount of microwave energy they can emit. But as your microwave ages, the door seals get weaker and the danger gets stronger. Other common household appliances also can create harmful EMFs. But you can take steps to make your kitchen safer.
Some scientists believe that any frequency above 10 hertz can begin to interfere with the body’s processes, causing potential health risks. But the frequency inside a microwave oven is 2.45 billion hertz.
Government regulations are supposed to keep that frequency contained within the oven by requiring seals. But with time and misuse, those seals begin to fail, increasing your exposure to dangerous waves that might cause a weakened immune system, cataracts, birth defects, cancer and other health problems.

Even if the seal is intact, microwaves as well as other appliances expose you to EMFs. EMFs are measured in milliGauss (mG). The Environmental Protection Agency recommends that you limit your exposure to 0.5 mG to 2.5 mG. When you are three feet away from a microwave, you are exposed to up to 25 mG.
