Abstract: In modern day’s high tech world, all of us are constantly experiencing EM radiation from almost all sources. Each and every source introduce its own EMF. At this very moment as you are reading this paper, you are probably being exposed to many electro-magnetic fields. The situation is no different while we are at play, travelling, at work, reposing at home, and even sleeping on bed. Practically there is an increase in EMR pollution with the increase in every new invention. EMR of all frequencies serve as one of the fastest growing and most common environmental impacts, about which speculation and anxiety are growing. The digital communication devices which we use emit digital pulsed radio-frequency EMFs which are perhaps one of the most harmful kind for human health. In today’s world use of cell phone has become ubiquitous with an estimated subscription of 6.9 billion globally. In modern day telecommunication cell phones play a very crucial role. It is not astonishing that the level of invisible electromagnetic pollution on our planet is tremendously high. As a result it is essential to examine, discern and check any possible impact on public health. The leading aim of this paper is to examine the harmful impacts of the electromagnetic radiation, survey the regulations which are in place to keep a check on the levels of radiations and to suggest a few daily habits which will help to reduce one’s exposure to such harmful radiations.
