The Health Threat Of Car EMFs

Cars Emit & Trap EMFs

Car EMFs are inevitable, as cars are electronic in nature. Although the conventional car burns oil for energy, while the electrical car and hybrid car utilize mainly electrical current, the very essence of a car and its traditional motor are based on electrical current.

Within metal, electricity becomes trapped. Instead of electrical currents dissipating, a metal container (such as a car) tends to keep those frequencies in. This works to concentrate the electromagnetic frequencies within the interior of the car, causing an increase in car radiation levels.

A traditional car utilizes a small battery that used direct current to power the fuel combustion engine. An electrical or hybrid car utilizes one or two larger batteries that run on alternating current.

The basic laws of physics dictate these machines will both emit and then contain electromagnetic frequencies or EMFs. The levels of EMFs will differ according to the different makes of each vehicle.

Why are EMFs in Cars a Concern?

There are many adverse health symptoms associated with both short-term and long-term EMF exposure. For car radiation, the excessive drowsiness caused by exposure to EMFs is one of the most dangerous.

Recent studies at Scripps Clinic & Research Foundation in La Jolla, California found that high levels of electromagnetic radiation (EMRs) from automobiles caused drivers to get sleepy while driving. Drivers exposed to high levels of car radiation fell asleep 52 minutes faster than drivers who were not exposed to such high levels of radiation.

In addition to sleepiness, short-term car radiation exposure while driving has been found to contribute to headaches, neck stiffness, dry eyes and blurred vision, ringing in the ears, irritability (think road rage) and spaciness.

Long-term car radiation exposure could lead to increased risk of various organ cancers, especially for hybrid drivers who tend to be exposed to  high levels of EMFs from underneath their seats.

It is well known that truck drivers have a high incidence of kidney cancer due to the high voltage wiring that runs underneath their seat.

Hybrid/Electric Car EMFs vs Regular Car EMFs
Hybrid cars do expose passengers to higher levels of EMFs that conventional cars. Although the car companies argue that Hybrid Cars often have lower EMF levels than traditional cars, this is not usually the case, as the Hybrid will house a large battery in the front of the car and a smaller battery in the back, with both batteries utilizing the more harmful alternating current (AC) as opposed to the direct current (DC) of conventional cars.


In addition, EMF levels in Hybrids tend to concentrate around the foot of the driver as well as the waist. Although authorities claim that since EMF levels do not accumulate above the waist to affect higher organs there should be no increase of concern, the fact is the kidneys as well as the reproductive organs of the driver are exposed to these higher radiation levels.

In addition, rear seat passengers are exposed to the rear battery emissions. In many instances, rear seat passengers are children, making the exposure of EMFs even more of a concern, as children’s rapidly  duplicating cells are more prone to damage from radiation exposure.

Newer Cars Have Higher EMF Levels

Car radiation is higher in newer cars due to the increase of technology within the car. No longer just a radio, cars now house complicated computer systems and wireless technologies.

Both GPS Tracking and Bluetooth technology utilize the same wireless RF radiation that cell phones and cell towers use. There addition of GPS into the car elevates the amount of microwave radiation being brought into the car from satellites in space, while the built in Bluetooth emits wireless radiation into the car cabin from the dashboard.
