Some traditional saunas may produce higher electro-magnetic fields or EMF levels than the infrared ones, some even reaching up to 100 mG. A better alternative would be to invest in a no EMF sauna, also known as a zero EMF sauna. These saunas use a carbon fiber heater that emits absolutely no EMF, and is considered to be one of the safest saunas out in the market today. This way, you get all the sauna benefits minus the health risks involved.
Another excellent alternative is the use of low EMF saunas. These units still emit EMFs but at greatly reduced levels, way within the recommended safe levels of exposure. These saunas are less expensive, too, while made available in different sizes to fit up to four people.
EMFs are energy waves that people get exposed to everyday. Practically any piece of technology emits these EMF in small amounts—from your desktop computer at work to your microwave at home.
Reputable organizations like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the World Health Organization (WHO) have claimed that there is no reason for concern about risks when exposed to smaller levels of EMF. However, EPA reminds the public and businesses that people should limit their EMF exposure to safer levels of 0.5 mG to 2.5 mG.
