Serves us right for still using magnetic media... shudda gone Optical by now :-/

Everyone lay off electricity for gawd sake!! If we didn't have electricity, our lives would pretty much suck, and we'd die of other things.

Besides, with no electricity, WHAT WOULD POWER OUR AMIGAS?! ANSER! ANSWER ME DAN YOU!!!!

Just some corrections here, smithy.

EMFs are created by all electrical devices or electrical wires. This is because electrons 'escape' from their primary conduit.


Nice analogy but that's not how it is. Electrons themselves have a small magnetic field - electricity and magnetism are the same thing. When charge flows through a conductor (and only charge, the electrons themselves don't move), a magnetic field is generated at a perpendicular angle. Electromagnetic force itself is carried by photons, not electrons. Electrons can't penetrate out of the cable, and they're not moving along it anyway. Only their charge is.

Quote
The one commonly accepted by scientists is that because the field is negatively charged it attracts Radon gas particles, which are positively charged. Radon gas is the nucleus of a Helium molecule, and is commonly referred to as ionising alpha radiation.


You're thinking of an alpha particle. Radon is a heavy element, a noble gas in the same group as helium. It isn't charged (and isn't likely to become charged, as it has it has a huge ionisation energy), but it is radioactive, and gives off alpha radiation, the most ionising but least penetrative type. As it decays into something else the product becomes periodically charged and is attracted to magnetic fields. Radon leeches out of most igneous rocks, especially granite. Aberdeen, the "granite city" has a background radiation level twice the norm.

Quote
EMFs consist of free electrons moving near to the speed of light. This kind of radiation is known as ionising beta radiation.


They don't, they exist as photons at the speed of light. Beta radiation is totally different and can be stopped by half a millimeter of aluminium. A magnetic field is practically infinite in range and to my knowledge will "pass through" anything.

Anyone thinks it'd be a good idea to have a "Cecilia's health&relation corner" forum here on Aorg?

Cheers for that KennyR.. it's been 7(!) years since I did A level Physics and my memory isn't what it used to be as a 17-year old!

nonono, "health" implies on a decent manner porn. And "relation" makes that being a bit more implied.

for 'tis a family oriented site eh?

And then there is the heating effect from mobilphones, that´s not good for your eyes, but nobody ever discuss that!
