Another series of studies in 1999 heralded the safety of EMF, only to later be deemed biased and skewed based on the fact that funding was provided in part by the microwave and cell phone industries. But the unreliability of these and other studies has not hindered the suspicions of some scientists. Many oncologists suspect a causal relationship between EMF and changes in DNA that can cause cancer.
One of the first steps that can be taken by any concerned party is to measure EMF levels within the home. Faulty wiring can be responsible for contaminating a home with unacceptable levels of EMF, sometimes misleading people to believe the high levels of EMF are coming from nearby electrical towers. Small, inexpensive meters are effective in making these measurements, and anything above 50-60Hz is considered an abnormal level of EMF.
