Help save lives this holiday season
Electromagnetic fields (EMF) are invisible lines of force around electrical equipment, power cords and wires that carry electricity. EMF includes:
Electric fields are produced by voltage, such as when a hair dryer, coffee maker, fan or light plug is turned on. Increasing your distance from the source of the electric field will weaken the strength of the field. Electrical fields are also usually blocked or weakened by things that conduct (transmit) electricity, including trees, buildings and even human skin.
Magnetic fields are produced when current travels through wires or other electrical devices. For example, turning on a coffee maker creates a magnetic field. Like electric fields, increasing your distance from the source of the magnetic field weakens the strength of the field. Unlike electrical fields, magnetic fields pass through most materials, including trees, buildings and human skin.
Even though we are high school students, we were able to raise so much money for the Canadian Cancer Society. It just goes to show what can happen when a small group of people come together for a great cause.
Celebrating cancer survivors at Relay For Life
For cancer survivors, the Canadian Cancer Society provides a unique opportunity to celebrate their courage in the fight against cancer. During hundreds of Relay For Life events across the country, thousands of survivors join together for the Survivors’ Victory Lap.
