Many people worry about electromagnetic fields (EMF), so it isn’t surprising that I get questions about the impact of EMF on Candida.
I previously read a study that involved cultivating 15 species of Candida and then exposing them to both EM radiation and the antifungal drug miconazole. It was interesting because, after one week of EMF exposure, the different species of Candida were more resistant to miconazole. In contrast, after the second week of EMF exposure, the Candida became more susceptible to the antifungal. I think it’s fair to say that the jury will be out until more research is done in the field.
We may eventually know if EMF makes Candida worse or better, but until then, it still makes sense to limit your exposure to EMF. For example, in my house, all the computers and all the devices connect directly to the router. I’ve got a communications room downstairs, it’s like spaghetti junction. There are wires everywhere, but I’ve got six cables running through the wall, so it works. I’ve got no Wi-Fi because I use the cable.

Like almost everyone else, I do use my mobile phone, but I talk on speakerphone. I don’t put the phone up to my face. I don’t like looking at iPads or similar devices. I hate using computers, but I do use them, of course, with the kind of work that I do.
You can limit your exposure to EMF, particularly with your mobile telephone. It’s a good idea to be very cautious. Better safe than sorry as they say.
