Electrostress from Travel
Cars, trucks, buses, trains, planes, boats and even motorcycles all create dangerous electromagnetic radiation. What’s more, highways and train tracks typically run alongside power lines, another major source of electromagnetic radiation. These harmful fields can layer, one upon the other, creating a toxic soup of radiation.
Automobiles are full of electronic as well as electrical devices generating toxic electromagnetic fields. While the engine is running, high levels of potentially
the lower half. The car’s clocks, computers, sensors and more each emit fields. In order to fire a spark plug, the coil voltage soars to nearly 18,000 volts. The alternator and air conditioning create fields. Even the action of your vehicle tires spinning against brake drums and pistons creates tremendous static electricity.
Hybrid Cars & EMF
The electrical fields are even greater in hybrids, especially at low speeds, because that’s when the car draws on battery power and electric current (as opposed to gasoline combustion for higher speeds).
The powerful flow of electric current creates high levels of EMFs with dangerous magnetic fields. What’s more, power cables and batteries are usually situated mid-car, close to the driver and passenger seats.
Testing hybrid cars for electric current can be eye-opening, not to mention alarming. Not only are these fields dangerously strong, but drivers typically spend a great deal of time behind the wheel. Reports of impaired health, most notably elevated blood pressure, are now starting to be evaluated.
EMF from Trains
Most trains are powered by diesel fuel. The EMFs created by diesel engines are significant, and worse near the engine; motors and other equipment can also create alternating fields at higher than 60 HZ frequencies.
Electrically powered trains are an even larger concern, including mass transit solutions (subways, elevated trains and others). For example, stunningly high EMF readings have been taken close to the floor of subway cars: presumably near equipment located underneath. And power lines along the rails can be particularly dangerous, especially on long rides.
