The answer is absolutely no, wood does not block EMF radiation. However, wood, like many materials, does attenuate (or reduce) the amount of radiation you are exposed to as it passes through. Let’s talk about this in a bit more detail. So How Does Wood Reduce EMF Radiation?
Does Wood Block EMF? No, wood does not protect you from EMF radiation. According to tests conducted by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), they found that wood was able to provide poor shielding effect from electromagnetic field radiation.
Can Trees Block EMF Radiation? The fact is that trees cannot block EMF radiation completely. They do however reduce the amount of radiation when it passes through them. Hence, having trees in line between your house and a mobile tower will help reduce the amount of exposure to EMF.
The best way to completely block WiFi radiation (which is actually a form of EMF called radiofrequency radiation) is to use a material capable of attenuating the more than 99% of radiation, which most would consider blocking. we can actually measure and rate that attenuation. For example, wood would hardly attenuate it at all, whereas a
Can You Actually Block EMF? What do we do about it though? Shouldn’t we block EMF? We get this question from time to time, and we think it is time to publicly address it. There are many people in the EMF protection community who say that the only way to protect ourselves from EMF is by blocking it. There are multitudes of products on the market designed to do just that.
Which material is best to block the mobile EMF Radiation ? To block the electric field, you just need a good conductor. As an EM wave hits a sheet of copper, it will cause electrons near the sheet's surface to move to cancel the electric field. (E=0 in a good conductor) These moving electrons constitute surface currents that setup a new electromagnetic wave traveling away from the surface.
$\begingroup$ Does the container have to allow visible light through? If not then foil would work. If you want a high pass filter, i.e. block wavelengths less than 750nm but allow everything above this wavelength, you'll need to be a bit more cunning. $\endgroup$ – John Rennie Nov 4 '12 at 9:11
Why Not to Use An EMF Blocking Phone Case (& What To Do ? It cannot block or stop EMF from occurring – it can only deflect it. Even so, there are numerous EMF shielding products on the market that claim to do this, but many don’t have any scientific proof of their efficacy.
How Does an EMF Blocker Work? EMF shields can come in the form of paints, keyboard covers, and computer monitor shields (a thin film that doesn't sacrifice readability). Often, these gadgets are made from conductive or magnetic materials that can deflect, block, or divert electromagnetic fields. Also, because of their design, their level of effectiveness reduces.
