radio waves all around us

Simple everyday phenomenon

You come home and you turn on the light by pressing the switch and by doing so you are already in contact with waves! In fact, all electronic and electrical equipment commonly used in the home generates electromagnetic fields of varying strength. So, what waves are we really exposed to in the home?

L’évolution des technologies d’un côté, celle de nos pratiques, usages et habitudes quotidiennes de l’autre aboutissent à la création de nouveaux champs électromagnétiques, auxquels nous nous trouvons exposés jusque dans notre domicile.

Certains rayonnements proviennent de l’extérieur – comme celui des antennes-relais ou des émetteurs radio et TV – mais la plupart trouvent leur source dans les appareils électriques et électroniques que chacun d’entre nous utilise au quotidien.

Feedback from decades of experience
Even if there is cumulative exposure to different sources of waves, the overall level is generally extremely low and is regulated by international standards (ICNIRP (opens in a new window)). Furthermore, the power of the signal diminishes very rapidly as we move away from the source. We are surrounded by electromagnetic fields every day, at home, at work and in the street… And this has been going on for decades. Even if today there are many more applications using electromagnetic waves, there are no proven adverse effects on health below the limits defined by the international directives
