The four types of EMFs are:

60 Hz AC Magnetic Fields from house wiring, wiring errors, current on the grounding system, and overhead power lines.

60 Hz AC Electric Fields from house wiring and plastic AC cords, particularly in sleeping ares.

Radio Frequency EMFs from wireless devices such as cell phones, Wi-Fi, tablets, cordless telephones, and smart meters.

Harmonic frequencies of "Dirty Electricity" from dimmer switches, compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), variable speed furnace motors, and other sources.
