Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) occur when electricity is utilized and conducted. Electromagnetic radiation is produced by the combination of these electric and magnetic forces. EMFs occur everywhere in our environment: electric blankets, toasters, microwaves, cellular phones, power lines, and so on. In the last decade some researchers have attempted to link exposure to EMFs to a higher frequency of cancer occurrences. Research is ongoing and there is much debate on this topic.
