electromagnetic radiation (EMR)

Electromagnetic radiation, Electromagnetic Radiation( EMR), are electromagnetic emissions that have arisen naturally and technically. These radiations include light and X-rays, the high- frequency radiation from radio and television transmitters, from wires and electrical equipment, and much more.

Electromagnetic radiation differs in terms of frequency and thus into ionizing radiation and non-ionizing radiation( NIR). Ionizing radiation is high-energy radiation, gamma and X-rays, which can change cells of living beings.

Ionizing and non-ionizing radiation

Ionizing and non-ionizing radiation

Non-ionizing radiation includes UV light and infrared light, visible light, and electrosmog from various radio systems. This radiation is less energetic and cannot cause cell changes.
