When referring to electromagnetic frequencies, we open up a large topic which includes jargon from many fields of interest. Some EMF’s are produced naturally from the earth. These are not harmful, and in fact, can be beneficial. Other EMF’s are produced through various man-made or man-engineered processes, such as video display terminals, computer monitors and the like. Some of emitted frequencies can be harmful, especially in certain amounts. There is much discussion about where the boundaries are as to what is helpful, harmful or destructive.

Researchers are looking at this from different perspectives. Studies are done with various voltages. You might read about EMF’s being described in any of these ways:
