The original question was: From what I understand, an accelerating charged object will emit radiation (such as an accelerating electron). However, considering that our bodies consist almost entirely of charged particles, why is it not that we are constantly emitting electromagnetic radiation. : There are a couple reasons; firstly, your charges are in balance, and secondly, a human can only move so fast. Since the charges are merely very close to each other, and not in exactly the same place, there are some very slight “near field” effects. But that’s not radiation (radiation is sometimes called the “far field“).
