EMF and Light Bulbs

I was surprised when I first was introduced to information about radiation in my environment. I was informed light bulbs create EMF radiation, and right away, I discovered my light bulb choice was creating a big problem. You may need to consider what bulbs you use too to reduce EMF levels in your home. I added that to my list of things to do and started researching. The information here will give you a shortcut to getting started. Hint: look for Incandescent Light Bulbs. Read on to find out why.

What are Smart light bulbs

You have new smart light bulbs now that have WI-Fi. Other smart bulbs use Bluetooth, which is equally dangerous in terms of radiation emissions. EMF levels increase with the number of WiFi-enabled devices you have in your home.
These smart light bulbs became more famous for being energy-efficient, but these new smart light bulbs cause increased EMF levels by producing dirty electricity. Our homes often do not have compatible wiring for these new smart light bulbs. The lower amount of power used by the Smart light bulb leaves the excess energy in the wires of the home. This unused electricity is then sent back into your home’s wiring, creating what is called dirty electricity. The dirty electricity generated is dangerous because it emits a high level of EMF radiation.

EMF meters measure for Dirty Electricity in your home.

Safer bulbs to use

Incandescent light bulbs, from an EMF standpoint, are the safest and most reliable. These are also less expensive than other light bulbs, work with the wiring in most older homes, and produce little dirty electricity. And since they have no WiFi or Bluetooth capability, you’re looking at little to no EMF production.

Here are several options by GE. These are standard wattage incandescent bulbs that are safer to use.
40 Watt
75 Watt
3 way 50/100/150-Watt

Light bulbs to avoid

Avoid LED-based light bulbs. Usually, these bulbs are WiFi or Bluetooth bulbs. The wireless signal produces its own EMF. These light bulbs are at the top of the list to avoid.

Any light bulb that produces dirty electricity is one to avoid. In addition to the LED, CFL light bulbs (compact fluorescent lamps) do this. This group of light bulbs are not designed to go with the wiring in most older homes.? These bulbs should not be on your list to purchase. You can buy remote-controlled light bulbs two ways. As a single bulb or as a light strip. They produce dirty electricity and EMF radiation from the remote control.

Minimizing exposure

Significantly reducing your exposure to light bulbs that can cause health problems is very important. Also, turning off lights can lower your energy bill. Use LED, smart bulbs, or CFLs (compact fluorescent lamps) as little as possible. Place them in your home where they will not be in close contact with people.

Lower your home’s overall exposure to EMF. Use low EMF incandescent light bulbs.

Getting an EMF meter, locating the dirty electricity in my home, and changing out my light bulbs made an immediate difference in the way I felt. I was grateful that the tools and information were available, and I could take action.
