Some of us spend a great deal of time in a car, therefore it is important to choose a vehicle that has low EMF and RF emissions. The goal is to reduce long term, low level exposure to Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) and Radio Frequency (RF) Radiation. Unfortunately little can be done with the automobile. There is also very little data recorded on this subject so each automobile would require a measurement to check its emissions. Obtaining accurate exposure readings is very important. Please visit our EMF Meter, RF Meter and Body Voltage Meter pages for Bau-Biologie approved testing equipment. See below for our suggestions on how to lower your EMF and RF exposure in automobiles:
The gasoline-ignition engine has spark plugs to ignite the fuel-air mixture. The ignition (spark) system is a tremendous source of broad spectrum RF Radiation as well as Magnetic Fields.
The car body is used as part of the electrical system, considerable electrical emissions exist inside an automobile.
The alternator is a strong source of Magnetic Fields.
The diesel engine with mechanical fuel injection has no spark plugs at all. An electric spark is not required therefore lower Magnetic Field emissions
The car stereo is a large source of EMF, even when powered off.
Keep distance form the audio speakers which emit large magnetic fields.
The air conditioning and heating fan generate large magnetic fields.
Most new cars have a satellite communication system and can transmit high levels of RF radiation.
Avoid speaking on a cell phone in the car without an external antenna. The RF waves will be reflected back at you from the metal chassis, doors and roof magnifying the radiation. Also, the cell phone has a hard time sending its signal out of the car because of the metal chassis, and increases its transmitting strength to compensate.
New hybrid vehicles will emit high electric and magnetic fields.
